  • Some of the largest U.S. banks already have boosted cybersecurity spending to almost $1 billion a year following high-profile attacks at companies such as Equifax Inc. and Anthem Inc.

How I hate the term « Ethical Hacker» !

  • We are all susceptible to be attacked by a malicious hacker, whether it is to get money, data, for fun, etc...
  • For me, a hacker is a person who is curious, a person who instead of just using his toaster will use it, but also open it, understand how it works and finally customize it (for example, add a little voice that wishes us a good day).
  • You can't really control what the mainstream does with technical terms and titles, but it's worth trying to use good descriptive vocabulary where possible.
  • Yep - it's enshrined in the Certified Ethical Hacker qualification, which was a bit naff in practice (I did V7 of this back in '09 I think) - my colleagues & I spent most of the week long course messing with the instructor's router, which was frankly rather more fun!

  • We talked to several people who have been through the process of flipping a house more than once, and many said the real-life timeline of house flipping is longer than depicted.
  • One house flipper spent a grueling amount of time scraping wallpaper off her kitchen, while another didn't check how laminate flooring fit together before purchasing it, resulting in complications when it came to laying it down.
  • But that's not to say house flipping can't be rewarding — or a good investment — especially if you love doing it.
  • Here's what house flipping is really like, according to house flippers themselves.

  • Above: In-game ads are on the rise.
  • Whereas the majority of respondents used to source ads from multiple suppliers in the hope of striking the best deal through competition, an increased demand for transparency and campaign data from the ad networks has led to a marked increase (61 percent year-over-year) in the number of developers showing loyalty to a single network that meets those demands.
