Mossad Hacked Syrian Official’s Computer Before Bombing Mysterious Facility

I guess that the “Evil Maid” attack is just one of many that might be employed by a foreign intelligence service. This is a classic attack that really only required physical access to the box. No need for the Tom Cruise wires and black suit either.

I for one, really enjoyed this little article. If anyone ever needed a laptop p0wn3d it was this Syrian. Of course now with the whole hard drive encryption movement, it might be more difficult in the future to get one of Iran’s laptops and do the same…

“Being Human”

leave a comment »

Being Human, a new (sorta) show on BBC that has yet to make it over the pond, has me. A werewolf, a Vampire, and a Ghost live together in a Bristol flat. They strive to all be more “human” in nature than their respective monsters or spirit as the case may be.

There are elements of many different mythos within this show. The Vampires though call bringing someone over “recruiting” and the blood lust is more an addiction than anything else that can be controlled.

The Werewolf is a bit of a sad sac with an inner strength and humanity that not even the wolf can diminish.. And the ghost is truly a lost soul.

This show is a nice balance of horror, comedy, and drama… Check it out.. That is when it gets to the US.
