An 'urban golf' outing raises civil liberties questions.
97 Wn.2d 92, STATE v. WHITE
This article involves a group of very intelligent people. Dan Kaminsky, who was in the group and was also detained but not arrested, is the person who found the HUGE DNS flaw where an attacker could have royally f*cked up the entire internet. He was also able to show that the Sony Rootkit had infected more than 568,200 computers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Kaminsky
Eric Rachner deals with computer security. This is really interesting to me because what he is doing, is what I am studying in college. I'm involved in the Computer Networking and Information Systems Security program at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood, WA. It is absolutely amazing that Rachner was able to do the research on the technology that the Seattle PD uses in their dash cams and request the log files from the video recording system. I was expecting that he was going to subpoena the physical hardware that was in the police car and recover the video himself.
A couple weeks ago, my instructor went over the DNS flaw that Dan Kaminsky found. I am going to show him this article.
