hacking - the next generation

interesting read but strange things along the read:

  the classic blended attack: safari's carpet bomb

is named absolutely wrong. the carpet bomb, safari stores files of unknown type to the desktop, is a sensible design decision, they are not hidden somewhere. it is getting useless on windows, if the files have the extension ".dll" because windows will not display them.

and the bug is that ie7 does look for dlls to load on the desktop, this is not a bug this is madness.

what i learned along this too is that reviews on o'reilly are already sold to someone else.


i am number four

do not read. a computer game on paper. long time setup of the fact that numberfour is a teen in puberty. interestingly even though his expected lifetime is much longer adolescence is at the same age as on earth.

and the showdown is horrible silly.

do not read.
