It probably can. Disclaimer: No idea whether this binary is safe or not.
The filename's too long, but .com was sometimes an executable file type in DOS.
I mean, it can
That's clearly just their generic 'tech' thumbnail which, I assume, is used for any tech stories. I imagine almost any news site would have a similar situation. They are not implying the image is related directly to that story.
Dude you forgot to close your <heaf> tag.
Even ignoring the story it's still a really terrible stock photo.
Well. He decompiles it, fixes that damn memory leak, recompiles and done!
Real programmers fix the machine code in binary vi.
Can't run your code slow if it's not even compiled
That's right guys, if your computer cant run crysis, then just decompile it and your FPS's will go through the roof
We’re done here, folks.
Motherboard has some interesting stuff... Although VERY eli5.
Vice’s articles can be VERY inaccurate.
Yeah but their website is run by different people and is mostly trash.
Use c++ to hack into their code
More importantly, was this pronounced S-Q-L or sequal?
It was pronounced "see-CUAL-ay," with a strong Italian accent and flamboyant gesticulation.
It's wouldn't ring quite as goofy if "databases" had been singular. As it is, it has a "one alcohol, please" vibe to it.
To be fair - Xbox controllers are used in the navy to operate periscopes. Could totally see game controllers being adapted for such things
Definitely, just thought it was amusing and this was probably the best subreddit for it. Plus I doubt that was the thought process probably more like "oh that looks high tech."
That looks high tech? Oh boy, wait til they get their hands on racing wheels
Wait is that Loss right above the timer there?
Obviously you guys have never installed pirate software. Key generators made for pirated software will often have elaborate graphic and music. So the bad guys obviously take pride in their work.
Oh shit you're right!
Yup, because how else am I supposed to trust this crack to make my pirated drum software work unless it starts playing midi anime music at max volume when I open it, and the buttons I need to click are lost somewhere in the hot pink and light gray UI blob.
HACKING IN PROGRESS
What else would you call your wrapper script for hash-cat (which you only wrote because you can't be bothered to remember the syntax)?
Not only am I the admin, I'm also a user
Teleports behind your CPU
/sub/masterhacker would be a good sub for this.
Nothing personnel, central core
Well, technically if that dude broke into his house and started wrecking his cpu with a screwdriver searching for his 'main processing core' his computer would quite definitely not work
A loose fit, perhaps. I never noticed this before.
The last version of BSD was 4.4-Lite2 in 1995, according to Wikipedia.
"Socrates BSD" doesn't exist, but if it did, it would have been highly unlikely to be that version number.
The most obvious derivative of the original BSD to consider in terms of versioning is FreeBSD, v9.2 of which was released in 2014.
Not particularly fascinating but somewhat interesting if you're nerdy enough.
FreeBSD 9.2 also had a tribute boot screen that paid homage to this image from the film. https://mebsd.com/make-build-your-freebsd-word/freebsd-9-2-die-hard.html
Nice find. Not entirely impossible for some company to have their own internal unix-branch and whatever numbering scheme they wish.
