“When CHINA RATs our servers, they aren’t sending their best. They’re sending script kiddies, DDOS babies. They’re bringing Tor. They’re bringing DMCA violations. They’re hackers, and some, some, I assume are good people.” ~ Tom

Security 124 – Post Defcon

https://youtu.be/J0yl1xcVV68

Being a slow news week for the average person, we decide to talk about Defcon, and all the great things that went on there.

In other news Blab.im has shut down, so we had to go back to Youtube video. Hopefully the quality is there.

We will eventually have a bitcoin address here if you want to donate to us.
