Twitter has come out and said it had 250,000 accounts compromised in a 'sophisticated' attack. They go on to mention other recent attacks implying they suspect the Chinese who were blamed for hacking The New York Times and Wall Street Journal this week.

Doesn't mean you can't get hacked. Imagine if someone was going around impersonating Whoop...

it said browser devs were disabling java by default, I figured someone dropped a logic bomb on twitters firewall and corrupted the ram boogers, thieving your chip packets when you logged in. Either way, I was following a total of two tweeters? twittererererers? twits? whatever.

If there was more than one me you'd know about it because the world would end. This world can not handle two d*******s of this magnitude.

The one from Swordfish is hilarious. Just mash keys together and you'll be fine.

Hmm, I hacked up some home-brew fried rice last night ... Coincidence? You decide.

My favourite computer hacker was Richard Pryor from Superman III.
He is being trained how to use a word processor or something and then he does something "MAGIC" on the computer and the instructor goes "How did you do that!" and Richard Pryor goes "I don't know! I just did it!" See, that's the thing about computer hackers, they have no idea how they do the things they do, or even remember what they did, and they need no prior experience with computers.

For a movie, Swordfish wasn't too bad, but every time there's an IT reference I have to cringe.

Being an IT professional, I have to wonder if the references for every other industry-related item we see on TV and in movies is so equally bulls*** - eg, anything crime-lab related in a CSI or Law and Order show we know is BS, we know lawyers aren't really that quick-witted, and what of every other medical show ever seen on TV?

They probably cringe in the same way we do.

Well yeah the cops are always attractive, the crime lab people never wear hair nets - so the evidence would always point to themselves, the doctors sometimes 'ride' the stretcher on top of the patient, wtf!

Remember Alan Shore from Boston Legal? He always peered at people in a knowing/wise/penetrating way, but really the actor playing him (James Spader) is like legally blind and couldn't actually see the other actors' faces.

As a gun enthusiast and experienced shooter, some of the ballistics crap they spurt out is genuinely outrageous. Mostly when trying to identify weapons used in crimes from shells that were left behind... it's just as cringe worthy as some of the IT stuff.

I have a real hate for media's interpretation of what I do for a living. I get requests sometimes from people if I can do what was done on X show/movie.

I truly appreciate when a show or movie does demonstrate proper hacking methods. Person of Interest references many popular malware and hacking techniques in episodes, usually taken from the news like stuxnet and flame, but the technical advisors get them to drop the references properly and don't make s*** up around it.
