  2. Reddit Privacy Policy Update Requires Consent to Post Nude Images

    Hooray! The bare minimum of human decency is now policy!

    For those of you who thought you'd never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than Reddit, the site is taking baby steps in a better direction: an update to their privacy policy bans the sharing of nude or sexually explicit images without the subject's consent.

  3. Those “Worst Password” Lists Could Be Felonies Under Department of Justice Proposal

    As opposed to just criminally stupid.

    A proposed alteration to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) from the Department of Justice would turn the dissemination of any information or passwords that could be used to compromise a protected computer into a crime—including those horrendous "worst password" lists. This may sound like a stupid move for cyber security, but on the bright side, at least something would finally be stupider than those passwords.

  4. UK and US to Stage “Cyber Attack War Games,” Matthew Broderick & Ally Sheedy’s Involvement Unknown

    Joshua, is that you?

    Not all cyber attacks involve hilariously bad infographics, Spider-Man crossover rumors, and institutionalized misogyny. For attacks that might damage more than just a movie studio's reputation, the United States and United Kingdom will work together to train cyber operatives in "cyber attack war games." I guess no one told them the only winning move is not to play.

  5. Marriott Ends Ban on Personal Wi-Fi Networks, Hotels Return to Lawless Internet Chaos

    Wi the last Marriott.

    Remember back in October, when the good people of the Internet were outraged by the reveal that a Marriott resort in Nashville was blocking convention goer's mobile hotspots and charging exorbitant prices for hotel Wi-Fi? Well, Marriott promises that won't happen anymore! Kind of. Maybe. Get all of your hotel Internetting done now, just in case?

  6. Review: Blackhat is a Series of Fun, Dumb Tubes

    Avengers/Suicide Squad crossover, go!

    The weirdest thing about Blackhat isn't that it's set in a universe where all computer scientists look like Chris Hemsworth or Leehom Wang (not that computer scientists can't be beefcakes, but there's beefcake and then there's BEEFCAKE).

  7. Syfy Developing Hackers Reality Show; Christian Slater Hacker Drama Gets Series Order

    Hack the Planet!

    Few activities are less dynamic than diddling away on one's keyboard, but (presumably in light of the highly-publicized recent attack on Sony), hackers are about to be glamorized in not one but two TV shows. Thanks, maybe-not-North-Korea!

  8. People Are Using Hacked Toy Hobbit Sting Swords to Find Unsecured Wi-Fi

    "I will give you a name...and I shall call you NO MORE LINKSYS."

    The Elvish smiths of Gondolin had their priorities straight: having an early-warning system for nearby goblins and orcs is all well and good, but finding accessible Wi-Fi networks is just as important. And now, thanks to the work of some enterprising nerds over at Spark.io, Sting's true web-cutting potential has finally been revealed!

  11. Sony Will Release The Interview After All, Demands That Twitter Suspend Users Proliferating Leaked Emails

    One step forward, two steps back.

    Good news for people who've been following the recent Sony hack scandal closely—turns out that they've caved on their own caving and will offer their (admittedly probably very stupid) film The Interview  for moviegoers via a "limited theatrical release." The bad news for those same people is that if Sony has their way, all of your Twitter accounts are probably forfeit.

  12. The Today Show Drops Amy Adams Segment After She Refuses to Discuss Sony Hack

    The Muppets are judging you, the Today Show.

    ALL WE ARE SAAAAYIIIING, IS GIVE PETER A CHAAAAAANCE to hang out with Captain America.

    The hacking of reams and reams of internal files, communications, and contact information from Sony Entertainment could be part of the plot of a Hollywood navel-gazing drama, or part of an intricate web of consequences in a Neal Stephenson novel, but instead it's... actually happening.

  16. Recent Sony Hack Reveals Huge Diversity Problems and Gender Pay Gap Among Top-Level Executives

    Who's surprised?

    On the off chance that you didn't already assume that an overwhelming majority of highly-paid movie executives in Hollywood are white and male, now the recent cyber attacks against Sony have proven that to be the case, at least for them. Thanks, maybe North Korea?

  18. Sony Pictures Reportedly Hacked and Brought to a Standstill With Threats of Blackmail

    "Give us the Spider-Man rights and no one gets hurt!" -Hackers?

    Yesterday, reports began flying that Sony Pictures' entire computer system had been locked up by a hacker group making undisclosed blackmail threats. We can only guess the hackers' demands have something to do with Spider-Man movie rights based on absolutely no information other than that's what we'd blackmail them for if it were us.

    It's been a little over a month since the hacked, private photos of hundreds of celebrities were unceremoniously dumped onto the Internet in what was colloquially referred to by total creeps as "The Fappening." In a very perverted version of life imitating art, Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence found herself the unwitting face of the incident, and now she's officially come forward to discuss how it affected her.
