With the week springing up on BlackHat and Defcon, there are a lot of security issues that people take for granted. In the Smash Bros. Community, competitive play is usually based off of good sportsmanship and fair play. For a game with no company support, an almost two-decade old console, and recent tournament mods to help improve the game, there would be tons of players that would use it for improvement and all the features it was intended for. There was one incident in North East Ohio (NEOH), that caused a stir-up in the community.
Your Car Is a Vulnerable Computer
Last October I talked about Andy Greenberg, senior writer for Wired, Charlie Miller, security engineer for Twitter, and Chris Valasek, director of vehicle safety research at Idactive creating an informative video to show how the safety features in cars can be hacked through the internet. You can see that here. I come to you nine months later with more interesting news; now you can drive your hacked car through a hacked car wash that will destroy your car and trap you in there.
In the spirit of Black Hat/DEFCON week, I’ve decided to put together a list of important tips that users of any electronic devices should be wary of when it comes to their personal security. After all, nothing is worse than the possibility that all of your information could be stolen and used against you.
So, here is my list of cyber security tips:
Since Black Hat and Defcon are going on, I am going to talk about passwords. While creating and remembering your passwords can be annoying, they are incredibly important to your security online.
With a basic password, for example something like 1234, could put you at risk for all sorts of attacks. This could lead to identity theft, stolen money, fake accounts or credit cards in your name, etc.
Today I found a special Kickstarter to talk about due to the fact that Defcon and Black Hat are going on this week. The device in question today is called the Firewalla and it's a simple solution that is used to secure your home network.
Yes, the Pokemon Go app has returned to my phone once again. Pokemon Go has had a lot of updates so I thought about giving it another shot. My girlfriend download it too and I have to say it quite fun to play with her. The other day we went pokemon hunting and captured a two gyms and completed two raids. The app also added a bunch of cool events like a Christmas Pikachu and Pikachu wearing Ash's hat and I think it's awesome!
I have been working on a project called "Data Wall" that acts as a digital border of statistics for immigration in the United States. The project scope focuses on immigration from Mexico (legal, illegal, and legal permanent residence) for now. I have collected over 15,000 documents from Department of Homeland Security from the 90's to present day about immigration. These documents look at age, sex, location, employment, where they move to, arrests, and a ton of very specific data. With all of this data, we're able to find patterns and information about immigration that may have never been thought about before.
Hey, what’s up? My name is Jordan Leong, the newest Student Ambassador here at UAT. This is currently my third semester and I am pursuing a Bachelor in Game Design degree. A few fun facts about me is that I am addicted to character creation, both in video games and on paper. There’s just something about creating people or creatures that just show off how creative you are or even show how deep in thought you can get. So obviously, I’m naturally imaginative, spewing out ideas left and right. This trait makes me really talkative, so keeping a conversation is not hard. Other than that, I’m another geek who fits in with everyone else here, talking about games and anime.
Hello! Diablo III's 11th season has begun and people are rushing to complete rifts upon rifts. There's a huge chance that people haven't slept yet. Starting on Thursday at 5PM, people rushed to create and build their characters. Some chose new classes, some chose fun classes, some chose optimal classes. So why is this important? Not to worry, I'll fill you in.
