How To Track Down Jennifer Lawrence Nude Pics Hacker

How To Track Down Jennifer Lawrence Nude Pics Hacker
By Chongchen Saelee

If you haven’t been informed, apparently a hacker has unleashed a collection of nude pics of female celebrities via 4Chan. The hacker seems to have obtained the pics from iCloud or some kind of cloud network that these female celebrities subscribed to. Most of the pics’ context involve them in sexting or post-coital states of undress. Some just look like selfies. They look authentic, and two of the compromised actresses (Jennifer Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Winstead) have confirmed they are real. The Mary Elizabeth Winstead ones look tame and intimate (the context she claims she shot with her husband), so that one looks convincing. But the Jennifer Lawrence ones don’t make sense. Was she a prostitute? She looks exploited in some of those pics. If they were during sex, they sure are strange. If you’re an actress, you’d only pose like that for a man that was a real bad boy. Think Pamela Anderson via Tommy Lee.

So that leads me to the real point of this post. Who posted these pics? (more…)

Heartbleed bug is vulnerability in OpenSSL

Well, well, well, NOW they’re getting more specific about what the “Heartbleed bug” actually is. Turns out, it’s a vulnerability in OpenSSL. You gotta be pretty stupid to use OpenSSL to log into a secure site. Like anything that is opensource, any joe schmo can go in there and put their own code leaving a backdoor open for them later. I don’t care if there is a peer-reviewed system in place. If all those supposed peers are crooked and corrupt, the entire system is already compromised. Such is the case with certain forum software (I won’t name names, but they have very sketchy behavior).

Thank goodness I never used OpenSSL (and I would never enable it if it came with any software). So I’m not too worried.

Fuck you, NSA. You guys need to stop playing games.

(OpenSSL is something the NSA would have created. But they’re claiming they didn’t. Do your research. Most of the encryption algorithms the entire Internet uses is written by NSA. Remember, NSA isn’t some righteous cream of the crop elite superhero group, they’re people, and people are flawed, crooked, corrupt, selfish, etc. Bad shit can happen and it does.)
