CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

Computer security has many facets.  My basic recommendations for a home user are the following:   * Use a good brand of router, do not rely upon what the telco provided you to be secure.

@Tails0nEmaybe try asking here  @Dirty_habiTis pretty good with the ‘puters

I'm hoping that there are some networking heads in here. With no routing statements in place, what logical addresses can be reached from an interface with the IP 204.1.27.8/28?

 

If you know the answer, can you offer some explanation as well? I'm trying to figure this shit out.

 

edit: (yes it's for some homework)

So I received my i7-3770K today in the mail that I got from Intel for 120 bucks. I OC'ed it to 4.0 ghz on stock V-Core and it's running @ 53C with 100% load on Prime 95, which are excellent temperatures for an i7 chip. It's been 30 minutes and so far so good, 0 errors. I'm so stoked on this!

 

If your employers are verified for Intel, or if you have a work email, try signing up because they have summer deals and holiday deals that you literally cannot miss.

 

It's awesome:

Question:

somebody found an at&t iphone 5, can it be wiped clean and sold on ebay?

 

 

it could be wiped clean but you cannot change the IMEI # or the Apple Serial #. both of these tied the phone to the original owner.

 

if they report it stolen or lost the carrier (Att&t) will black list it and it will no longer be able to activate it. Also, with no Jailbreak / Unlock (yet, no eta) available you cant just take it to the next carrier.

 

i take it, it didn't have the find my iphone app installed?

 

does it have a lock-screen passcode? is it still active? turn off the location service ! right nao

 

SETTINGS>LOCATION SERVICES> OFF!!

 

if it doesn't then go to the following location on phone:

 

SETTINGS>ICLOUD>FIND MY IPHONE

 

if you dont see it your're in good shape for being tracked.

 

as for the sale. disclaimer. **buyer beware possible bad ESN/IMEI # **

the find my iPhone was in the off position before it was wiped clean. The phone won't let the user continue the setup process without a sim. could the location services be running in the background after it's been wiped?

if it was off good.

 

during setup, i believe there is a option to turn on location service once its connects to a wifi. not sure.

 

if you cant get past the setup process. try finding someone with a 4s and user that sim, hopefully it will activate without having to call at&t to point that 4s "sim card" to the iphone 5 imei.

 

or keep it in the draw until a jailbreak is release with "hacktivate" capabilities

 

 

 

While hacktivation is still possible on older iPhones, Apple had added additional security on iPhone 5 and iOS 6 to prevent unauthorized activation or “hacktivation.”

 

It was only until recently that major US carriers such as AT&T started blacklisting iPhones which are reported missing or stolen. When iOS 6 was released together with the iPhone 5, Apple and AT&T worked together and implemented additional security by requiring Billing Zip Code and the last 4-digit of Social Security Number (SSN) of the person who purchased the iPhone to be entered during iPhone activation.

 

I'll keep looking.

Location services could be running in background even after it is wiped. Location services run in the background even when the phone is off.

My friend just got a new laptop, and she asked me to help set it up but didn't mention that it came with W8. So even though I rarely use Windows and avoid modern interfaces (too distracting) W8 didn't confound me in the same way that OSX did at first...but it's a pretty big metaphor shift for MS. I figured out the ribbon well enough to get by and the start screen did what it needed to do...the learning curve was tolerable, especially if you use anything with a touch screen and/or cover flow (iPhone and XMBC come to mind).

 

Since it wasn't a touch screen, I turned off the corners/gestures so things would stop zooming around but didn't tweak anything about the interface besides that (and that was only so I could get things done). The terminal (DOS) seems the same aside from adding a "sudo" feature (elevated command prompt), which was long overdue but at this point seems like another example of MS adding something everyone else has had since the 80s (i.e. mounting ISOs, disk imaging, virtual desktops, etc...if you're talking about a root account, it's really more like the 60s but hey).

 

You may not like it, but based on everything else I've seen out there it looks like this is the direction the user interface is headed in....and for once, MS got a pretty solid jump on almost everyone with W8.

So anyone know where I can find drivers for sony dvd burners? I am trying to burn a dual layer dvd with a player that is capable of burning it but it won't recognize the disc when I insert it, yes I have the right dvd dual layers for the burner, but I think I need to update the firmware to get it to work properly on my system. Google has been no help to me thus far.

So maybe someone here can help me maybe not. I'm trying to boot my ppc g5 off a usb which isn't supported and install 10.5 on my system. When booting my computer refuses to detect the USB drive. I've looked into it and from what I can gather usb booting isn't supported on my model. Anyone know how I can do this?

 

EDIT: also thanks for that sony link but they claim to have no knowledge of my dvd burner.
