8 Things You Won't Believe Can Be Hacked

If movies are to be believed, hackers are mostly kept busy fighting the man with CGI animations of smiley faces, or else dwelling in the darkest corners of their mothers' basements and doing purely nerdy stuff that never affects the real world. But neither assumption is true: Hacking does not look like a rad skateboarder busting a kickflip over an onyx tower, and hackers do gain access to things that can affect your daily life ... and sometimes, even end it.

#8. Explode Your Genitals

We think we have a pretty good idea of what hackers are capable of: stealing your personal information, crashing your computer, Rollerblading like a sonofabitch and making out with Angelina Jolie (back when she was hot, before her alien DNA kicked in and she started looking like a hawk-monster).

But today's hackers have finally crossed a line, and must be terminated with extreme prejudice. The offense? They're trying to destroy your wang.

"The good news is that your leg is going to be fine ..."

The newest MacBooks contain batteries with small monitor chips installed. It's such a discreet addition that Apple didn't feel the need to secure it, which of course means that hackers everywhere had to immediately set to work exploiting it. It gets pretty technical, but the gist of the process is this: The software uses a default password, which is the same in every single MacBook. By reverse engineering the firmware, hackers can render the battery useless or inject malware into the system through the chip (and you couldn't even wipe your hard drive and reformat the system to get rid of it, because you probably won't think to check your battery for a virus).


"Is it enough to Sharpie 'Avira' onto them?"

Or, if they're feeling particularly villainous, they could just overheat the battery of your laptop (so named because it sits on top of your lap, which, you'll recall, is where you keep your junk) to the point of bursting into flames or exploding. That's right: Hackers are after your penis.

There is just no version of that sentence that is anything less than terrifying.

Photos.com
"Definitely that guy. You don't play a druid without repercussions."

#7. Cut Your Car's Brakes

Security specialists at the University of Washington and the University of California have shown that new cars with computer systems onboard face a real security threat from hackers. These scientists were able to gain control of two vehicles and operate more than a dozen functions while the cars were in motion. This included things like braking, selective braking of each wheel (thus effectively "steering" the car) and shutting off the engine completely. Scarier still is that once they gained control of the vehicles, driver input was totally ignored: The pedals, wheel and switches all had no effect. They were also able to launch a "composite attack," in which the malicious software would be erased after a crash, effectively leaving no evidence of tampering.

Photos.com
Just a quick flash of smoke followed by confusion and a throwing star.

Being vehicular-manslaughtered by cyberwarriors is the worst case scenario, of course.

It's far more likely that these exploits will be used to simply steal the cars. Experts are predicting that the future of car theft is a split venture, with hackers selling their services to car thieves by providing them with the GPS location of the vehicle, then unlocking the door and starting the engine remotely so the thieves can drive off with it. Possible points of entry for a car hacker are through Bluetooth, a cellular network, the freaking tire pressure monitor and even music files. Yes, the next song you download could be your last, if the wrong hacker has been into it. So while we agree that Journey's Greatest Hits is indeed a sweet album that you totally need for that road trip, you have to ask yourself the question: Is it worth dying for?

We'll never stop believin'.

(The answer is yes, obviously.)

#6. Control a Nuclear Power Plant

When Scott Lunsford, a researcher for IBM's Internet Security Systems, told the owners of an American nuclear power station that he could hack into their system through the Internet, they laughed in his face. They told him that he couldn't do it; that it was "impossible." Then they left to look up the word "hubris" in the dictionary while Lunsford hacked the holy shit out of their systems. It took his team less than a day to infiltrate and less than a week to take full control of the nuclear power station. He claimed it was "one of the easiest penetration tests" he had ever performed.

Photos.com
We're pretty sure he was talking about the colons of the owners.

While he couldn't have caused anything like a meltdown, Lunsford is still convinced that if he had been inclined, he could have done some significant damage within the system. All it would have taken was simply "closing a valve" to shut off power to most of a city. The particular system Lunsford hacked to gain control of the plant is powered by something called SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) software, and the bad news is that so is most of the rest of America's infrastructure. SCADA controls things like water filtration plants and subway networks all across the nation, and its security is becoming weaker by the day, mostly due to ever-increasing Internet connectivity. Lunsford imagines a variety of catastrophic possibilities if cyber-terrorists ever learned of these exploits in the SCADA system, like he just did, and like we're telling you about right now (uh ... sorry, America).

Eh, New York doesn't need electricity anyway.

#5. Use Your Computer Screen as a Two-Way Mirror

Odds are that if you're reading this, you have a Webcam pointed at you right now and -- NO DON'T LOOK AT IT! Just be cool, OK? Act natural ...

Most likely, there's nobody watching you. We assume even bored hackers have better things to do than watch someone play Call of Duty and distractedly drop Fritos on their underwear. But if a hacker ever did want to gain control of your Webcam to spy on you, it's very doable. In fact, improperly or entirely unsecured Webcams have entire sites devoted to them: Here's a whole subreddit of controllable Webcams that you're going to lose an entire afternoon clicking on, just because you can.

Photos.com
They've been standing like that for six hours. And it is so hot.

Webcam manufacturers are well aware of this problem, too. Companies like Logitech are already fitting their Webcams with privacy shields (a fancy term for "lens caps") to protect their users against unwanted access. As far as a motive for this kind of invasion of privacy, there are few reasons to hack a civilian's personal Webcam short of spying on women changing ... aaaand that's exactly what the majority of cases turn out to be.

Via Hillbillyvampire.blogspot.com
Don't let this stop you from watching that True Blood torrent during your weekly underwear pillow fight.

So if you're an attractive woman reading this and you're worried about your privacy, check for the LED indicator next to your Webcam to see when it's active. And, uh ... maybe send us a thank you message for introducing this vital information to you, and then just continue about your normal business: checking your email topless.


Bras make for a suboptimal Internet experience.



#4. Shower in Free Money

Remember the "easy money" scene from Terminator 2, when John Connor and his friend hack an ATM with a portable Atari computer? That wasn't fiction. (Well, that one part, anyway. The rest of that movie was absolutely fictional. Sentient killer skeleton robots do not exist, and "Hasta la vista, baby" is not a thing that reasonable human beings say to one another.) Unlike most companies, ATM designers haven't been getting hacked much in the last decade or so, and as such, their security measures are slightly behind the curve.

At last year's Black Hat technical security conference, IOActive Labs' Director of Security Research, Barnaby Jack, wanted to demonstrate just how easy it was to hack a couple of ATMs. He didn't need to open up the machine or even make a withdrawal to accomplish this. He did everything entirely remotely, using only his laptop and a program called Jackpot. When he was done, a jaunty little tune played on his speakers, the word "jackpot" flashed on his screen, and the ATM started spitting out bills all over the place, presumably while Barnaby kicked his heels together and yipped like an old-timey prospector.


Roughly 40 percent of you are now typing "Jackpot full download" into Google.

#3. Crash the National Power Grid

By 2020, the U.K. wants to have a smart meter in every home to measure gas and electricity consumption. The devices send real-time data directly to the utility companies through a Web connection, thus providing customers with constantly updated information on energy conservation while simultaneously helping to manage national demand more efficiently. The smart meter sounds like a reasonable idea to us working stiffs (well, we're not really working, but we sure are stiff!), but where we see just a little gray box outside that gives us power, a hacker sees a bunch of low-hanging fruit with minimal security, spanning the entire country.

Photos.com
Time to bake some hack pie, baby!

If just one of these boxes was infected with a worm, it could theoretically bring down the entire grid. In the case of the U.K.'s future national "smart grid" plan, that could potentially mean cutting the power off to an entire country.

Via Guineveregetssober.com
That's why the really good Modern Warfare players own generators.

Worldwide, there are already 40 million smart meters in use, and several of those networks operate in the U.S. Yet another team from IOActive (these guys are starting to sound like equal parts Robin Hood and Doctor Doom, aren't they?) developed a worm and used it to illustrate the security flaws in these systems. With this worm in place, they did exactly what they warned, and successfully took control of an entire American power grid. Mike Davis, a senior consultant for the firm, issued this ominous statement: "We can switch off hundreds of thousands of homes potentially at the same time." He didn't append the statement with a list of demands or anything, but we're forced to assume that it was followed by some sort of maniacal cackling.

#2. Stop Your Heart

Via Weareindy.com

Everything from your car to your blender is getting upgraded with a computer chip these days. Medical implants like pacemakers are no exception. Since they need to be updated somewhat remotely anyway (otherwise all maintenance would involve major surgery), they do have limited outside connectivity, allowing doctors to access your stored medical history, your name and address and your doctor's name and address. Oh, and a skilled hacker can access all of it, too.

That's right: They can hack your goddamn heart.

And as if we need to say it: Obviously they can remotely stop it beating while they're in there.

Photos.com
"Damn you, V4g1n@B00bs87! Daaammnnn yoooouu ..."

In some devices, like an implanted defibrillator, which shocks your heart back into activity if it ever seizes up, hackers can remotely shut off the device and wait for you to die or, if they just ain't got all day, send it into test mode instead -- where the pacemaker repeatedly delivers powerful, fatal shocks to the heart even when it's already beating just fine.

Via Wikimedia Commons
But if you enter the Konami Code ...

Diabetic implants like insulin pumps have proven to be another security risk: When hackers get access to one of these devices, they can mess with the levels being injected into the body, which, again, can have fatal consequences. Jay Radcliffe discovered this hack while he was dicking around with his own diabetic equipment. At first he thought it was "really cool" that he could just ditz around for a few minutes and gain access to computers within his own body. Then he realized that any bored teenager with the right skill set could have total mastery over whether he lives or dies.

Photos.com
"Hey Dad, how big was that insurance policy again?"

He doesn't sleep well these days, we expect.

#1. See You Naked

Via Pennlive.com

You know those full body scanners they have at airports now? They're essentially robots that strip-search you with science, staring right through your clothes to see if you're hiding a weapon or an embarrassing tattoo. But more disturbing than the simple fact that these pictures exist is the ease with which these X-ray devices can be hacked. Hackers can gain control of an airport's PC from hundreds of miles away and download these pictures in a flash, probably kick-starting a new half-transparent ghostporn fetish (and the Internet is already at near critical levels of fetish saturation).

Via Trailertrasher.com
Pictured: Critical fetish saturation.

The images these devices capture are supposed to be deleted immediately after security views them, but that's not always the case. Last year, images from an older type of full body scanner (slightly less naked-looking images) were leaked, and future privacy breaches like this are considered a very real threat. So if you're planning to travel by air in the future, maybe hit the gym, do a little waxing and be more selective about your underwear choices, because you never know who could be judging your naked body in the near future. (Us. It's probably going to be us.)


Oh yeah. This is ... hot?

7 things aliens should know before landing 2

7. People are greedy

Let's suppose you are an intelligent (by human standards) alien life form and look somewhat humanoid, so that people can cope with the overall idea of you. After stumbling upon this tiny planet called Earth and scanning it for intelligence, you decide to pay cousin human a visit.
And since you are an intelligent extraterrestrial, you aren't going to simply contact the human world leaders and let them know you're dropping by for dinner. After all, we've all seen "Mars attacks" and know how well that went.
So you decide to be cautious and approach a small group of human individuals, who, hopefully, are decent intelligent beings... Your eyes twitch in awe as you discover who the humans really are and what they're capable of.

Humans are greedy; to a degree hard to imagine. They will sell their organs, children, parents and even neighbors to feed their everlasting greed. As soon as you knock on their apparently welcoming door, you are already doomed to a life of servitude for twisted desires or scientific experiments only the human mind could come up with.
Humans are so greedy they would even go search for Unobtainium on your mother planet.
People have always had a thing for selling anything to make a profit. You know, like Jesus or lunar property rights.

6. People are perverts

You quickly realize that direct contact is not a safe idea, so you decide to stay low-profile for a while. You try hiding in a dark corner, only to bump into two humans engaged in some weird activity involving strap-on dildos, leather clothing and what appears to be a flail. Right across the street you can spot some human females who, despite the blistering cold, appear to be wearing minimal clothing. For some reason swarms of human males approach them whistling.
Yes, people are perverts. Big time perverts. Probably the most perverted, horniest creatures in the Milky Way galaxy.
Yes, you may very well leave now.

5. People are unstable

Yes, quite a specimen this human is. He is greedy, he is perverted and sooner than you can say "Holy Shit! I need to get out of here quick!!!" you will learn that people can be are unstable creatures.
For instance there is this guy who sold his life on eBay to get over his ex-wife. Or this guy who tattooed a piece of shit on his ex-girlfriend's back for cheating on him. And this particular individual decided the only way he could prevent cheating on his wife was to castrate himself. i suppose it won't hurt to say DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME (unless you really want to).
But men and their testicle-related issues are not the only sign of how demented humans are as a species. No, no! Women are in the club, too. For instance this particular lady stabbed her husband 193 times apparently in self-defense. Unless she was married to Superman, you probably should not date her. Then again, there was this woman who suddenly felt like eating some girl a bit too literally. So kids, DON'T DRINK WITH STRANGERS. Especially not with Russian female strangers.
Are you still there alien? If you are, here's some insight on the human feeding process.

Not displayed: genitals and feces.


4. People are downright insane

After finding out just how unstable humans are, you probably think in your extraterrestrial brain that this headline/part is repetitive. No, it's not. If you find it insane to chop off a human being and eat it cooked or uncooked, then what do you call a man who decides it is a good idea to eat his own fucking cat? Yes, it happens every now and then here on Earth. Probably after you watch this important tutorial for women.
I could list you several websites, books and sources to read all about the cream of our society: insane serial killers, sadistic rapists and violent child molesters, but that would ruin your little terrestrial fieldtrip. Which is why i propose we move on.


Pictured: typical human individual


3. People have religion

People are strange, i give you that. They are strange, even when you're not a stranger.
People have religion. People gather around in special buildings, wear different kinds of hats, bring sacrifices and prayers to supposedly superior beings and live their lives in fear of eternal damnation. Does anyone sense the irony in that?
i will not rant about religion (in this post), my dear alien visitor, but i will confess what saddens me. i find it sad that in a world which continues to grow (expand), too many people decide to limit their purpose to worshipping something or someone for the sake of an afterlife. My sincere concern is that once they get there they will figure out it wasn't worth the effort and spend the afterlife praying to someone or something else to send them back to Earth for this current existence.



2. People have Batman

For those people who stopped believing in God/Jehovah/Allah, Buddha or any other recognized, organized religion, there is always Batman. People believe in Batman! Even those who believe in Jesus, secretly believe in Batman. Chuck Norris believes in Batman! Batman is the hero of the human species and people treat him with the respect he deserves...
Which is exactly why you should be concerned, dear extraterrestrial visitor... At some point in their existence, humans gave up on their religious faith, too.
They noticed that all religions have a pretty poor accepted/rejected prayer ratio and decided in their broken hearts to believe in something else. In something apparently more human, at least in matters of flesh and blood. They decided to create the ultimate human being, a strong, handsome and incredibly intelligent individual who gave up his personal life in exchange for the safety of humans. Kind of like a modern, costumed and muscular Jesus, except without a messianic complex and the bad habit of speaking in parabolas.
You probably ask yourself, poor alien visitor, what the fuck is wrong with the human society?! Why do humans need models so badly and why must they create fictional characters to have someone to believe in?



1. People aren't worth it

i'll answer that for you, cousin E.T. as we're walking back to your spaceship.
People are messed up. People prefer believing in ancient texts and worshiping invisible forces rather than deciding their own purpose in life. They struggle to be unique while they accept the beliefs of the masses. They dream of achieving material fulfillment only to feel incomplete when they achieve it. They lost faith in themselves and in each other, they lie, murder and steal. They ruin themselves and, what's worse, they ruin Earth for the rest of us, too.
Every time somebody stands up to the system, we bring him down and end his existence. We later turn him into a mythical creature which we idealize, but never truly follow. We turn him into a brand and sell the shit out of it.
Dear alien, people aren't worth it. Next time you decide to visit Earth, don't look for intelligence in humans. Try with animals, try with plants or anything else you can still find here by the time our species has wiped itself out.

Family Guy Season Premiere 2008

After the scene when Cleveland yells 'Boom goes the dynamite' (a reference to the infamous YouTube video) after having an orgasm with a girl in a public washroom, I laughed out loud for the 5th time in the episode. Then I turned to the clock and noticed that it was only 9:15pm. I was happy that there was only 15 minutes left in the episode and realized that Family Guy is back!

Last season's strike shortened episodes were the worst in Family Guy history. A sub-par Family Guy episode is always better than most shows on network television, but I was very disappointed with their showing last year. It seems like creator Seth MacFarlane, fresh off his $100 million contract to show-run Family Guy, American Dad and the spin-off The Cleveland Show (to air in January 2009), is back as this premiere episode grabbed me. Now I'm looking forward to watch what he's got going next.

Whereas the last 15 episodes of Family Guy really had no plot at all, the premiere episode lead with a plot. Yes, Family Guy is all about randomness and strange events, but if there is no actually plot, we the audience will get bored even if the jokes are funny. Storytelling using plot is something we've been used to ever since our parents or guardians read us nursery rhymes as babies. We need to follow a plot, no matter how Family Guy insane it is, in order for us to be interested.

This episode follows Brian (with Stewie not far behind) on a journey of finding love. A common story in the Family Guy series. This time he abstains from sex with his new girlfriend in order to gain respect from her. Of course this backfires when she is horny and ends up with Cleveland. Cleveland is a funny character and it should be interesting if he can pull off leading an entire series when he's spinned-off into his new show. Brian tries to separate them with the help of Stewie, and tries to get Cleveland's ex to come back and take Cleveland away so Brian can have the girl.

Of course all of this is insane but Brian after all is a dog. And that's what this show is all about. Common storylines and pop-culture references in the crazy world of a talking Dog and evil genius talking Bab living with an even crazier family.

A colleague of mine suggested that universities should create a course about Family Guy episodes. It should be called Family Guy and the Pop Culture Influence of our World. He swears that it's needed in post-secondary schools because we need to understand how in our society why the entertainment industry is so prominent. And how Family Guy episodes really put the wink in the wink-wink of our world.

So here's to a solid first episode. Hopefully there are 20 more to come.




The Simpsons Movie – first review

Homer Simpson, the oafish paterfamilias of America’s favourite dysfunctional family, emerges from his big-screen debut a bona fide Hollywood action hero.

 Homer Simpson

At the start of The Simpsons Movie Homer’s dreams of glory are limited to helping his new pet pig to walk upside down on the ceiling while singing “Spiderpig, Spiderpig” to the Spider-Man theme song

But when the adopted swine gets him into bigger trouble than even this celebrated screw-up has ever experienced before, he falls under the influence of a chesty Native American woman he calls “Boob Lady” and undergoes an uncharacteristic epiphany that galvanizes him into action for the good of his by-now estranged clan.

By the time the witty final credits roll, Homer outshines even Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been elected president and ordered great harm done to Homer’s home town.

The Hollywood action theme helps the hit cartoon series, after 18 seasons on television, to land its death-defying leap to the big screen with panache. The result is a postmodern parable about an environmental scare that is at the same time hilarious and horrifyingly poignant. But thanks to an unexpected glimpse of Bart’s genitalia, this is a postmodern parable with a “pickle shot”.

The film boasts the same sly cultural references and flashes of brilliance that have earned the television series a following that ranges from tots to comparative literature PhDs. Despite its clownishness and childish graphics, it still offers searing insights into the pathetic human condition.

When the residents of Springfield learn that they are confronting catastrophe, for instance, the panicked occupants of the bar and the next-door church pour out into the street and change places — the drinkers taking solace in religion and the religious finding comfort in drink.

But the movie will be equally satisfying to those who just find it funny that Homer wants to kiss his pet pig — or laugh at Marge pondering the (literally) weighty issue of the pig’s “leavings”, or excrement.

Early on The Simpsons team shows their nerve by making Homer wonder out loud why anyone would pay to buy a cinema ticket to watch what they could see on TV free — the underlying question of the whole big-screen adaptation. In Homer’s view, anyone who pays for cinema tickets to watch a TV show is a sucker. Jabbing his finger at the audience, he declares: “Particularly you!”

What you get for your money is the Simpsons on an epic scale. The familiar, if geographically indeterminate, territory of Springfield is suddenly transformed into a cross between The Truman Show and Escape from New York, with a Big Brother government conspiring to keep all its unruly residents in line until it can be bombed into a “new Grand Canyon” tourist attraction.

The middle section, set in Alaska, lags because of the absence of the familiar props of the Simpsons’ home town. I found myself longing for Homer and his tribe to return to wreak more havoc on their neighbours, particularly the long-suffering Flanders.

But the film ends with a tense second-by-second countdown that fully exploits the bathos of that schlump Homer becoming an action star able save the world, or at least his little part of it. The conventions of the “disaster flick” allow The Simpsons’ left-leaning creator, Matt Groening, to indulge his politics with wry warnings of environmental doom without boring us out of our mustard-yellow skin.

Lisa, Homer and Marge’s swotty daughter, has become an ardent environmentalist who makes an Al Gore-style presentation entitled “An Irritating Truth” to the local populace.

In the same spirit, this film could have been subtitled: “An Inconvenient Cartoon”.
