Research on Misconfigured Jenkins Servers - emtunc's Blog by emtunc in netsec

[–]Consumer451 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy crap, I’m a two man shop with a Jenkins server, hidden inside a vpn though. Do I get some sort of prize?

But seriously, why would anyone put a Jenkins server on the open internet? If google did it, there must be a reason.. is it just that hard to login to openvpn and put in a google auth key?

"We Saw It Happen" (1952) Aviation history documentary with people who were there with the Wright Brothers to Chuck Yeager. by Consumer451 in Documentaries

[–]Consumer451[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This doc has some astounding interviewees whom I have never seen speak before. If your are into aviation or military history, this film is worth your time.

examples:

  • Wright Brothers' mechanic Charlie Taylor

  • Frank P. Lahm, the first US Army airplane pilot

  • Igor Sikorsky

  • Glenn L. Martin

  • Donald Douglas Sr

and many others...

Cheap international data? (Western Europe) by letsgo545 in backpacking

I have US T-Mobile, have been in the EU for months. It's all I use, it is unlimited 2G data for free. So it is slow, but it does work.

Johns Hopkins study suggests medical errors are third-leading cause of death in U.S. by Consumer451 in Health

In a democracy, the buck always stops with the voter. We are the ones that are dumb enough to believe that if you put a bunch of profit centers (fragmented and for-profit insurance) between you and a service, it will magically become less expensive and better because 'government is always less efficient.'

Edit: this is just part of the issue, and to be fair, there is always going to be some percent of medical errors.

The fact that you are putting words in my mouth, calling actual research done by professionals a “sensationalist article,” really tells me a lot about you good sir. Have a nice life.

The corporation (2003) - a University of British Columbia psychology professor and a consultant to the FBI, compares the profile of the contemporary profitable business corporation to that of a clinically diagnosed psychopath. by FreeFridolin in Documentaries

It seems to me that like Communism, pure Capitalism is extremism. Here is the term we all need to become familiar with: Social Market Economy It's pretty much what most countries already practice.

After slowdown controversy, iPhone 6 Plus users must wait for batteries by ASockFromOuterSpace in gadgets

How are your 6 Pluses still working? I had the expensive T-Mobile "Jump" thing that gave me an endless warranty. Thank God, because touch disease is for real. I went through three 6 Pluses until the last time, they were out of 6's and gave me a 6s! Finally! That phone is pure evil and should have been recalled.

Fair enough, I have a lot of respect for doctors as I could never handle that job. I agree on insurance companies. Every dollar spent on executive compensation and shareholder value is a procedure denied. The real death panels get bonuses based on their heartlessness. The immorality is stunning.

Really curious how that amazingly dense story will work as a 2 hour movie.

I see, thanks. Yeah, even my niche b2b software has audit logs, though with DB access I could change that too.

Edit: to be clear I was thinking blockchain would not allow tampering even if someone had root access to the DB.

My pet theory is they are paid to turn a blind eye to highly questionable for-profit insurance system.

Not a conspiracy mind you, just the system they are in.

Edit: removed hyperbole

edit2: What I meant here is that the normal economic pressures that would be applied to keep all costs down in the medical industry, are not applied, because everyone has their hands in the cookie jar. If that is controversial, so be it.

This needs to be a legislated at the national level. The National Medical Records Standards Act. A standard database schema, API standard, and requirements for 911, EMTs, all docs and hospitals to have synchronized systems. Some tweaks to HIPPA would probably need to be made to allow it, you can't sign away your right to privacy when you are unconscious.

edit: If we had single payer, or at least a public option, that could be the de-facto standard maker, and could really push this through.
