Slashdot: The Incredibly Stupid Plot To Hijack a Domain By Breaking Into Its Owner's House

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
CNN tells the story of 24-year-old "social media influencer" Rossi Lorathio Adams II who'd wanted his domain to be the slogan of his social media sites (which at one point had over a million followers on Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter). Unfortunately, that domain was already owned by another man in Iowa -- but Adams came up with a solution: In June 2017, Adams enlisted his cousin to break into the domain owner's home and force him to transfer it. The cousin drove to the domain owner's house and provided a demand note [which contained "a series of directions on how to change an Internet domain name from the domain owner's GoDaddy account to one of Adams' GoDaddy accounts."] After entering the home, the intruder grabbed the victim's arm and ordered him to connect his computer to the internet. He put the firearm against the victim's head and ordered him to follow the instructions. "Fearing for his life, the victim quickly turned to move the gun away from his head. The victim then managed to gain control of the gun," court records show. The victim shot the intruder multiple times and called the police. The intruder, Adams' cousin Sherman Hopkins Jr., was sentenced to 20 years in prison last year. Now it's Adams' turn. He will remain in custody pending sentencing. He faces a maximum 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

JavaアップデートでOTNライセンスのJavaが落ちてくるようになった 1

タレコミ by Anonymous Coward
あるAnonymous Coward 曰く、
Oracle、「Java SE 12.0.1」「Java SE 8 Update 211」を公開 ~新元号“令和”に対応
https://forest.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1180549.html
「Oracle Java」のライセンスが変更 ~無償利用は個人での開発・テスト・デモ目的のみに
https://forest.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1180607.html

impressの記事、ライセンス変更なんてとっくの昔に発表されているだろと思ってスルーしてたら、今回が無償化終了後の初のアップデートで、一般のWindowsユーザー向けのJavaアップデートでもOTNライセンスのJavaが落ちてくるようになった、という事だった。
アップデートの文面にあるように、職場のPCで何も考えずに更新を適用するとライセンス違反になり兼ねない。一方で、タイミングが悪いことに令和対応にはアップデートが必須なようだ。

Oracle Java SEの有償化に伴うOpenJDKへの切り替えの案内
https://ipc.kyokyo-u.ac.jp/page/696

京都教育大学の上記の案内が良くまとまっていたが、対策としてはAdoptOpenJDKなどのOSSプロジェクトがWindows向けのJRE/JDKビルドを提供しているので、そちらに移行するのが良いようだ。

Slashdot: Are We Sacrificing Too Much For Automation?

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Fast Company shares an essay from an anthropologist who researches human agency, algorithms, AI, and automation in the context of social systems: With the advent of computational tools for quantitative measurement and metrics, and the development of machine learning based on the big data developed by those metrics, organizations, Amazon among them, started to transition through a period of what I refer to as "extreme data analysis," whereby anything and anyone that can be measured, is. This is a problem. Using counting, metrics, and implementation of outcomes from extreme data analysis to inform policies for humans is a threat to our well-being, and results in the stories we are hearing about in the warehouse, and in other areas of our lives, where humans are too often forfeiting their agency to algorithms and machines. Unfortunately, after decades of building this quantitative scaffolding, a company such as Amazon has pretty much baked it into their infrastructure and their culture.... As the world continues to automate things, processes, and services, humans are put in positions where we must constantly adapt, since at the moment, automation cannot, and does not, cooperate with us outside of its pre-programmed repertoire. Thus, in many instances we must do the yielding of our agency and our choices, to the algorithms or robots, to reach the cooperative outcomes we require.... If every process is eventually automated and restricts human agency, while simultaneously requiring our servitude to function, we will be pinned to the wall with no choices, nothing left to give, and no alternatives for coping with it. One example provided was the Amazon worker who complained the warehouse temperatures were always kept too hot -- to accommodate the needs of Amazon's robots. But the article argues we also forfeit agency "Every time we use a computer, or any computationally based device... "We do this by sitting or standing to use a keyboard, by typing, clicking, scrolling, checking boxes, pulling down menus, and filling in data in a way that the machine can understand."

三菱UFJニコス、カードブランドのシステム統合を中止すると日経新聞が報じる

タレコミ by Anonymous Coward
あるAnonymous Coward 曰く、
日経新聞は22日、三菱UFJニコスがカードブランドごとに異なるシステムの統合を中止すると電子版で報じた。

三菱UFJニコスは三菱UFJフィナンシャル・グループの子会社で、銀行を中核とする金融グループの合併によりMUFGカード(UFJカード)、DCカード、NICOSカードの3ブランドのクレジットカードを提供している。各ブランドの管理システムが別々であるため、余分な経費がかかっている。2016年から開発を始め、2022年3月期までに新システムへ統合する計画だった。しかし、ここ1年でキャッシュレス決済をめぐる環境は激変し、QRコードなど競合サービスに対抗する新サービスの機能が必要となった。システム統合と新サービスが同時並行となり時間がかかれば競争力を失いかねないと判断した、と報じられている。

Slashdot: Black Hole Photo Used Supercomputers and Cloud Computing To Prove Einstein Right

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
An anonymous reader quotes The Next Web: As stunning and ground-breaking as it is, the EHT project is not just about taking on a challenge. It's an unprecedented test of whether Einstein's ideas about the very nature of space and time hold up in extreme circumstances, and looks closer than ever before at the role of black holes in the universe. To cut a long story short: Einstein was right.... His general theory of relativity has passed two serious tests from the universe's most extreme conditions in the last few years. Here, Einstein's theory predicted the observations from M87 with unerring accuracy, and is seemingly the correct description of the nature of space, time, and gravity. The measurements of the speeds of matter around the center of the black hole are consistent with being near the speed of light. The advanced computing research center at the University of Texas at Austin says the data for the photo "was collected during a 2017 global campaign, after decades of scientific, engineering, and computational research and preparation." And their own facility played a role in the finished photo, according to an article shared by aarondubrow: Helping to lay the groundwork for the black hole imaging, and providing the theoretical underpinnings that enabled the researchers to interpret the mass, underlying structure, and orientations of the black hole and its environment, were supercomputers at The University of Texas at Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) -- Stampede1, Stampede2 and Jetstream -- all three of which were supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), which also provided key funding for the EHT... "We are doing finite difference, three-dimensional simulations with not just gas dynamics, but also magnetic fields," said Harvard University professor and EHT researcher Ramesh Narayan. "That includes radiation and what is called two-temperature physics in a general relativistic framework. For these, we really do need the TACC's Stampede system with lots of cores and lots of hours.... The simulations are computationally very expensive and supercomputers are definitely needed...." Alongside the simulation and modeling effort, another group of researchers from the University of Arizona (UA) were using Jetstream -- a large-scale cloud environment for research located both at TACC and Indiana University -- to develop cloud-based data analysis pipelines that proved crucial for combining huge amounts of data taken from the geographically-distributed observatories, and sharing the data with researchers around the world. "New technologies such as cloud computing are essential to support international collaborations like this," said Chi-kwan Chan, leader of the EHT Computations and Software Working Group and an assistant astronomer at UA. "The production run was actually carried out on Google Cloud, but much of the early development was on Jetstream. Without Jetstream, it is unclear that we would have a cloud-based pipeline at all."

nemui4の日記: 京都の目覚まし時計を神奈川で使うと 3

日記 by nemui4

大昔、某会社の寮に居た頃。
向かいの部屋に京都出身の新人さんが入った。
目覚まし時計が明け方に鳴ってて、そいつだけ起きなくて自分含めた周りの部屋から非難轟々。
50HZAC電源用で時間が進んでたらしい。

電子か半導体方面の技術職で採用されててもこういう人がいるんだ。と感心したっけ。
その後職場でも「うっかり」やらかしまくり実験器具や試料を破壊しまくりでそのうちいなくなってた。

Slashdot: Red Hat Takes Over Maintenance of OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 From Oracle

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
"Red Hat is taking over maintenance responsibilities for OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 from Oracle," reports InfoWorld: Red Hat will now oversee bug fixes and security patches for the two older releases, which serve as the basis for two long-term support releases of Java. Red Hat's updates will feed into releases of Java from Oracle, Red Hat, and other providers... Previously, Red Hat led the OpenJDK 6 and OpenJDK 7 projects. Red Hat is not taking over OpenJDK 9 or OpenJDK 10, which were short-term releases with a six-month support window.

Slashdot: Linux 5.2 Will Introduce The Fieldbus Subsystem

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
"The new Fieldbus system has been deemed ready to be released into the staging area of the Linux kernel," writes jwhyche (Slashdot reader #6,192). Phoronix reports: This newest subsystem for the Linux kernel benefits industrial systems. Fieldbus is a set of network protocols for real-time distributed control of automated industrial systems. Fieldbus is used for connecting different systems/components/instruments within industrial environments. Fieldbus is used for connecting facilities ranging from manufacturing plants up to nuclear energy facilities. The Fieldbus specification has been around for decades while now seeing a formal subsystem within the Linux kernel. The subsystem allows for devices to exchange data over a Fieldbus whether it be Profinet, FLNet, or one of the other implementations. The subsystem provides a generic framework for exposing switches, lights, actuators, motors, and other hardware... The Linux kernel's Fieldbus subsystem has gone through over ten rounds of public revisions in recent months and has been deemed ready to premiere with Linux 5.2 [which] should debut in July.

Slashdot: Historic 'Summit' with the Creators of Python, Java, TypeScript, and Perl

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
"At the first annual charity event conducted by Puget Sound Programming Python on April 2, four legendary language creators came together to discuss the past and future of language design," reports PacktPub. - Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python - James Gosling, the founder, and lead designer behind the Java programming language - Anders Hejlsberg, the original author of Turbo Pascal who has also worked on the development of C# and TypeScript - Larry Wall, the creator of Perl You can watch the video here -- the speaker introductions start about 50 minutes into the video-- or read PacktPub's summary of the event: Guido van Rossum said designing a programming language is very similar to the way JK Rowling writes her books, the Harry Potter series... He says JK Rowling is a genius in the way that some details that she mentioned in her first Harry Potter book ended up playing an important plot point in part six and seven... When designing a language we start with committing to certain details like the keywords we want to use, the style of coding we want to follow, etc. But, whatever we decide on we are stuck with them and in the future, we need to find new ways to use those details, just like Rowling... When James Gosling was asked how Java came into existence and what were the design principles he abided by, he simply said, "it didn't come out of like a personal passion project or something. It was actually from trying to build a prototype.... It started out as kind of doing better C and then it got out of control that the rest of the project really ended up just providing the context." In the end, the only thing out of that project survived was Java... Larry Wall wanted to create a language that was more like a natural language. Explaining through an example, he said, "Instead of putting people in a university campus and deciding where they go we're just gonna see where people want to walk and then put shortcuts in all those places." A basic principle behind creating Perl was to provide APIs to everything. It was aimed to be both a good text processing language linguistically but also a glue language.... Similar to the views of Guido van Rossum, Anders Hejlsberg adds that any decision that you make when designing a language you have to live with it. When designing a language you need to be very careful about reasoning over what "not" to introduce in the language. There was also some discussion of types -- Gosling believes they help improve performance, while Hejlsberg said types are also useful when building coding tools. "It turns out that you can actually be more productive by adding types if you do it in a non-intrusive manner and if you work hard on doing good type inference and so forth." In fact, Hejlsberg told the audience that the TypeScript project was inspired by massive "write-only" JavaScript code bases, while a semantic understanding (including a type system) makes refactoring easier. Guido van Rossum acknowledged that TypeScript "is actually incredibly useful and so we're adding a very similar idea to Python. We are adding it in a slightly different way because we have a different context.... I've learned a painful lesson, that for small programs dynamic typing is great. For large programs, you have to have a more disciplined approach. And it helps if the language actually gives you that discipline, rather than telling you, 'Well, you can do whatever you want.'" In the video Larry Wall says the Perl 6 team had also noticed the limitations of loose typing, and added a robust type system to Perl 6 to "help with programming in the large." This was the first annual benefit for CSforALL, a group promoting high-quality computer science classes at every grade level.

Slashdot: More Than 23 Million People Use the Password '123456'

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Bearhouse shares a new study from the UK's "National Cyber Security Centre," which advises the public on computer security, about the world's most-frequently cracked passwords. It's probably no surprise to the Slashdot readership: people use bad passwords. A recent study of publicly-available "hacked" accounts -- by the UK National Cyber Security Centre -- reveals "123456" was top, followed by the much more secure "123456789" and hard-to-guess "qwerty". If you're a soccer (football) fan, then try "Liverpool" or "Chelsea" -- they'll work in more than half a million cases. Finally, for musicians, Metallica gets beaten down by 50cent, 140k to 190k respectively. The most common fictional names used as passwords were "superman" (333,139 users), "naruto" (242,749), "tigger" (237,290), "pokemon" (226,947), and "batman" (203,116). The organization recommends instead choosing three random words as a password -- and also checking "password blacklists" that show passwords that have already been found in past data breaches. (Developers and sysadmins are also advised to implement these checks as part of their rules for which user passwords will be allowed.) The organization also released a file from the "Have I Been Pwned" site containing the top 100,000 passwords. So what are the top ten most-frequently used passwords? 123456123456789qwertypassword11111112345678abc1231234567password112345
