Warning: this article is not for the fainted of heart!
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link”, this sentence applies to any process that will fail if some step in it goes wrong. The guys at Technical Park and ABB, the industrial colossus that built the new Flying Fury amusement park attraction, should have taken it into consideration.
Here’s the story…
Without any doubt, the best article published about the Darpa’s Turst in IC program has appeared on IEEE Spectrum’s website. We welcome you to read that article, then to come back here as we posted our comments (oh boy, we have so much to say…)
The ICANN and IANA websites were defaced earlier today by a Turkish group called “NetDevilz”. ICANN is responsible for the global coordination of the Internet’s system of unique identifiers. These include domain names, as well as the addresses used in a variety of Internet protocols. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is responsible for the global coordination of the DNS Root, IP addressing, and other Internet protocol resources.
Their domains were redirecting to a hosting space at “atspace.com” where the defacers left the following message:
“You think that you control the domains but you don’t! Everybody knows wrong. We control the domains including ICANN! Don’t you believe us?”
Just about a few days ago, an appealing news appeared on the Internet. It regarded the deployment of a new generation of unmanned combat drones on a real battlefield.
We are not talking about aerial drones, here we are talking about ground soldier-drones, the real stuff we were all waiting for. Well, sort of.
The news is about the decision of the US Military to deploy eighteen more of the same combat drones who were already deployed, experimentally, on the Iraqi territory. Three units, to be precise. Are those artificial soldiers anything new? Not really.
As promised, we are back online!
We physically moved our servers by a bare 3,500 km, in this way we should be in much better condition to fulfill the regular servers maintenance routine.
We do have a bit of news though. As you probably noticed from the top menu, all the language flags disappeared. We took the decision to concentrate our efforts on the English version of Zone-H.
