Don,

 

Since we'd been talking about AI recently in the beginning of class before we get down to the lesson of the day, thought you'd might find this interesting.

Hi Don,

I just received my call from the “IRS” this morning about a lawsuit being filed against me.  I only wished that I had taken this call live instead of receiving their voicemail message.

Severe flaws found in WPA2

As a security guy, I'm sure you've already seen this. Gotta see what CERT says tomorrow.

Hi Donald, 

 

Just saw this...http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/Uber-Concealed-Cyberattack-That-Exposed-57-12375423.php

 

Seems like now a days everybody is hiding if they got exposed...

 

"Two attackers accessed a private GitHub coding site used by Uber software engineers and then used login credentials they obtained there to access data stored on an Amazon Web Services account that handled computing tasks for the company. From there, the hackers discovered an archive of rider and driver information. Later, they emailed Uber asking for money, according to the company."

 

Pretty speechless to say the least

Robocall article

The new rules specifically target robocalls that spoof caller ID information, such as those that display numbers that are either not actually in use or numbers that don't make outgoing calls. Voice service providers are now expressly authorized to block robocalls that use those spoofing strategies as well as those that appear to be from area codes that don't exist or from numbers that haven't been assigned to a provider.
