Researchers Uncover Way to Hack BIOS and Undermine Secure Operating Systems

The ability to hack the BIOS chip at the heart of every computer is no longer reserved for the NSA and other three-letter agencies. Millions of machines contain basic BIOS vulnerabilities that let anyone with moderately sophisticated hacking skills compromise and control a system surreptitiously, according to two researchers.

Weaponizing Wikipedia- What Invasion Scale Info War Is

I introduced Joel Harding as Ukraine’s King Troll for a reason. He is the force behind how mainstream media around the world portray the Ukraine war and the people involved.

Its because of his work American and western journalists are being targeted by the Ukrainian Government through the Information Ministry and getting on what he describes as “bad lists” around the world.

The European Union moved closer to extending its sanctions against Russia, finding a formula that looks like allowing it to bypass the obligation for unanimity among its 28 members.

France Decrees New Commercial Buildings Must Be Partially Covered in Plants or Solar Panels

While I’d be thrilled to see more commercial buildings with plants and solar panels on top of them, I’m not so thrilled with the strong arm legislation used to get there. On the overall scheme of things, green rooftops and solar panel systems would be trivial expenses that save companies money. Why wouldn’t they just implement them? Why does it take a government to force them to do it?

The giant computer network that links law enforcement agencies across California—sharing oodles of personal information from its expanding database—is close to hooking up with the federal government’s own citizen surveillance system and those of other states despite some apparent legal hurdles.

Those are not generally familiar notations, but their influence is sweeping.
