Surprise! North Korea’s official news site delivers malware, too

A security researcher examining the website of North Korea’s official news service, the Korean Central News Agency, has discovered that the site delivers more than just the latest photo spread of Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea leader Kim Jong Un inspecting mushroom farms. There’s a little extra surprise hidden in the site’s code—malware. The news site appears to double as a way for North Korea to deliver a “watering hole” attack against individuals who want to keep tabs on the “activities” of the DPRK’s dear leader.

So, want to read up on this little fiasco this side of the planet?  Might want to re-think that….

27 million South Koreans affected by data breach | CSO Online

Even though I’m still or if the country,  I still keep tabs on things.

And hurray for being one of the most word countries in the world but still think Internet Explorer is a must have for banking!  Just goes to show that they really don’t understand security. This article is nothing new…

Fuck you T-Mobile

I was not aware that England was so repressive when it comes to adult-related material.

You would think that by clicking you would be on to carry on…. But you would be wrong.

Dafuq? Not only is T-Mobile trying to be my parents,  now they want my credit card info? Fuck that!

I don’t need a net nanny and neither does anyone else. I really can’t stand companies that try to do what patents should have done in the first place,  teach their kids properly and leave the responsibility where it should be….. With the parents.

For those that aren’t aware, you should look into. TOR in such cases for bypassing such bullshit. There is an android app ;)

S. Korea Arrests 3 Party Officials For ‘Rebellion Plot’

South Korean authorities have arrested three members of a small, left-leaning political party and charged them with conspiring to stage a rebellion.

Well this is interesting.

Well, this is a first.

I’ve seen a lot of things here but this struck me truly as odd.

I took this pic while I was walking through Jinju a few nights ago and we passed a bank.  I saw these first and thought “Those are odd” but then it clicked…..”Ooooooh, Bank.”  What makes these odd is not really their function (to stop anyone from driving a vehicle up to the front door(through?) of the bank) but more of the fact that they ARE there.  I don’t recall seeing there anywhere else in Korea, and I’ve been to quite a few cities, both big and small here.  To me, this would indicate a problem that was bad enough to warrant some serious physical protection for the bank.  Yup, seeing new stuff all the time :)
