I thought it would be cool if I could make my username somthing like: "password is 123456789" so if it gets stolen and the entered password was 123456789 then It would run some programs that keylogged, screen captured, and took pictures with the webcam. Is this possible?
Edit: And when the thief logs on it would seem as though everything is normal.submitted by /u/Elias4918
I'm starting to suspect that nvenc doesn't have the full -x265-params programmed in yet. I downloaded the latest nvidia sdk and used it to compile ffmpeg 3.1.1 from git.
There was a x264 video that I wanted to convert to x265. The original was around 40mb and the libx265 version came out to be around 20mb. However, when I tried to encode it with hevc_nvenc, it grew to 202mb. Yes it was faster, but I don't think it counts for much when it's not efficient.
Has anyone else experienced ffmpeg creating large file sizes when using the hevc_nvenc codec?submitted by /u/atomicxblue
Please don't ostracize me for this, but I am looking for like-minded people.
I would like to experiment with alternatives of FHS and it's enterprize implications.
It would be interesting to see, if we can
- Build a modular Kernel
- Find a better alternative to FHS (I am aware of GOBO and NIXOS, but can it be improved. In fact I really like the NixOs idea of reconfigurable system - can the idea be extended to configure the boot sequence to look in custom locations to load a command line shell, and the graphical shell?)
- Hack the Linux Kernel and Boot sequence to work with the new file structure
- Implement Wayland instead of X
- Plasma 5 with the option of different widgets to different desktops (I am not agreed with the official KDE philosophy involving destops and activities - I want to manage them the way I want)
- A better way to manage pipelines
- A system to map this kernel to a stander Arch linux kernel for binary compatibility.
I am aware of the complexity involved in this project. Could this never the less interest any of you?submitted by /u/seanscon
Hi all, A while ago on my OpenPandora I had a real handy little python script that would search for music and present a list to stream. It was terminal based and I remember putting it on PC as well. I have no idea what it's called though since I haven't used it for a while. Does anyone know?submitted by /u/mongrol

PLC-Blaster Worm Targets Industrial Control Systems [Ed: Remember Stuxnet?]
PLC-Blaster was designed to target Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200 PLCs. Siemens is Europe’s biggest engineering company and a PLC market share leader. Siemens said in March shortly after the worm was unveiled at Black Hat Asia that the malware was not exploiting a vulnerability in Siemens gear. Maik Brüggemann, software developer and security engineer at OpenSource Security, said that worms like this one are a threat to any industrial network.
When OpenSource Security took its findings to Siemens, the researchers were told there were no flaws in its PLC platforms using its SIMATIC S7-1200 PLC. “We were told these were not vulnerabilities and that everything worked as expected,” Brüggemann said.

Def Con: Do smart devices mean dumb security?
From net-connected sex toys to smart light bulbs you can control via your phone, there's no doubt that the internet of things is here to stay.
More and more people are finding that the devices forming this network of smart stuff can make their lives easier.
1 billion computer monitors vulnerable to undetectable firmware attacks
A team led by Ang Cui (previously) -- the guy who showed how he could take over your LAN by sending a print-job to your printer -- have presented research at Defcon, showing that malware on your computer can poison your monitor's firmware, creating nearly undetectable malware implants that can trick users by displaying fake information, and spy on the information being sent to the screen.
It's a scarier, networked, pluripotent version of Van Eck phreaking that uses an incredibly sly backchannel to communicate with the in-device malware: attackers can blink a single pixel in a website to activate and send instructions to the screen's malware.
What's more, there's no existing countermeasure for it, and most monitors appear to be vulnerable.
LXer: DNF (Dandified yum), the next generation of yum package manager (Fork of Yum) for Fedora system
I am the managing director of a start-up here in the UK. Our mission is to make open source software available to everyone. We're aiming to provide an end-to-end solution selling Linux hardware, creating a cross-distro Linux app store and creating a Linux distro that is easy to use, install, upgrade and develop/package for.
I'm here today to talk to you about Linux hardware. We have recently launched our Linux hardware store which sells Laptops and All-in-One PCs running Linux. We figured most Linux users will have the knowledge to build their own desktop PCs, so we've focused our efforts on building machines that are more difficult for someone to build on their own.
We would love to hear your feedback on the hardware we provide, and are completely open to feedback and suggestions on how to make our products the best they can be.
If you're interested in purchasing any of our products, then please use the voucher code EARLYADOPT to get a 10% discount off your first order.
We're currently only shipping in the UK, but if you're interested in purchasing one of our products and reside outside of the UK, then please contact me directly and we may be able to work something out.
Our website is: https://store.nimbusoft.co.uk/
Look forward to hearing your feedback.
