  • Microsoft Word macro malware automatically adapts attack techniques for macOS, Windows

     This article really mischaracterizes the purpose of Metasploit. It is used to test for or confirm vulnerabilities.  Of course it can also be used for nefarious purposes just like many security tools.  Keep up the fake news.
    If anyone tosses about the term "Fake News" so loosely, I assume they no little about what they are saying, including he whose name shall not be spoken.

  • AT&T will entice users to sign up for DirecTV Now OTT service with free Apple TV or Fire TV

    If they'd drop Fox, I'd go for it. I won't support, even indirectly, lunatics promoting other lunatics or lunatic behavior.

    I feel real bad for the ad industry. They may not me able to send me all the crap I never wanted in the first place. 
    While as a consumer I agree and find it uber creepy (and utterly stupid) that I get adds all over the web for things I've already searched for, remember, this is what keeps the internet "free". I don't think these Safari limitations will destroy the model we shouldn't knock it too much unless you want paywalls everywhere. The advertisers and the ad networks may suck but this is how the creators get paid. 

    I was was a fan of Techpinions but as a niche site they decided to put up a paywall rather than rely on ads. $10 a month is to much for casual interest for one website for me but I assume it is working for them. 

    It is just ignorant of the underlying business model of the web to wish for an ad-blocked world.
    My, are the only valid ads those that come from tracking? I think not. They just pay better. The spurious argument reminds me when cable TV was going to be as free because you paid for it. Ha! Fool me twice..,
