94% Of All Terrorist Attacks Are Invented By The FBI - Study Shows submitted by OhBlindOne to news

to be the devils lawyer

most of the "real terrorists" is only "real" because they succeeded, of course the media won´t talk about the capture / killing of the "normal" lowly runner / smuggler who run to terrorist leaders and deliver messages / guns from their operatives / contact´s and because it does not sell newspaper, we get a skewed look (of course not every Muslim is a terrorist!)

i agree 3d printing is THE thing that will be a revolution for humanity , at least when we get to iron out the kinks in cad´s although we might need to fix the slowness with printing today, e.g 4 hours for a fork will be too long. but think about it need, need new lever´s? print , need new knifes / forks print , need new protector for a prosthesis print , need need body for a blue whale ehh well it got limits.

great work on the site atko! , i remember when it was still whoaverse(spelling) also for info about the layer 7 attack for the users

Layer 7 attacks

A new breed of attacks target Layer 7 of the OSI model, the "application" layer. These attacks focus on specific characteristics of web applications that create bottlenecks. For example, the so-called Slow Read attack sends packets slowly across multiple connections. Because Apache opens a new thread for each connection, and since connections are maintained as long as there is traffic being sent, an attacker can overwhelm a web server by exhausting its thread pool relatively quickly.

CloudFlare has protections in place against many of these attacks, and in real world experiences we generally reduce HTTP attack traffic by 90%. For most attacks, and for most of our customers, this is enough to keep them online. However, the 10% of traffic that does get through traditional protections can still be overwhelming to customers with limited resources or in the face of very large attacks. In this case, CloudFlare offers a security setting called "I'm Under Attack" mode (IUAM).

IUAM is a security level you can set for your site when you're under attack. When IUAM is turned on, CloudFlare will add an additional layer of protections to stop malicious HTTP traffic from being passed to your server. While a number of additional checks are performed in the background, an interstitial page is presented to your site's visitors for 5 seconds while the checks are completed. Think of it as a challenge where the tests are automatic and visitors never need to fill in a CAPTCHA.

After verified as legitimate by the automated tests, visitors are able to browse your site unencumbered. Javascript and cookies are required for the tests, and to record the fact that the tests were correctly passed. The page which your visitors see when in IUAM can be fully customized to reflect your branding. I'm Under Attack mode does not block search engine crawlers or your existing CloudFlare whitelist. Making DoS a thing of the past

As technology advances DoS attacks will only increase in complexity and magnitude. Traditional on-premise DoS solutions simply can not adapt to the wide range of new attack vectors, and are rendered completely ineffective for attacks that exceed an organization's network capacity.

The CloudFlare network is designed to mitigate and keep pace with the changing threat landscape. CloudFlare, as an operator of one of the largest global networks on the Internet, is able to leverage its aggregate network capacity across 35 points of presence, and is able to learn from attacks against any individual customer to protect all customers on our network.

The world is ending, there is a space ship leaving Earth that only has a limited amount of space. Why are you allowed on? submitted by Renoco to AskVoat

as i got some rather psychopathic thoughts / charismatic persona i might be legible for a ticket. i through my coolness/coldness under stress would be a formidable pilot/commander for our forces on our new home and my weapon knowledge , fun ways to "extract information" , and basic knowledge of biology could help strengthen our community, and make sure we persevere throughout ages (i should be a politician with my "attitude"!)
