A series of exploits in Intel CPUs at the hardware level which were publicly revealed last month are now being targeted by malware in the wild. Microcode patches which reduce without completely mitigating the vulnerabilities reduce compute performance on affected chips drastically as the vulnerabilities are a consequence of "optimizations" Intel chose to pursue.

As to be expected the USG.NSA has monitored Torrent and other file sharing networks while spreading malware from the early days of filesharing. Continue reading
Following last month's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia at the hands of antifa terrorists another leftist group is escalating its nuisance presence. A group of neo-Maoist cultural revolutionaries advocating for an agenda authored by a group calling itself "the Black Student Alliance" but which the neo-Moaists calling themselves "the Black Student Alliance" insist was not actually them, vandalized a statute of third United States President and University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson.
The unnamed neo-Maoists <sarcasm>who surely weren't the named nao-Maoists</sarcasm> covered the statue in a black shroud and placed signs alleging the dead polymath is "racist" and "rapist" [sic]. Today's president of the university founded by Jefferson, a different kind of cultural Marxist calling itself Teresa A. Sullivan offered a number of utterances which included:
I strongly disagree with the protestors’ decision to cover the Jefferson statue. I also recognize the rights of those present at the protest to express their emotions and opinions regarding the recent horrific events that occurred on our Grounds and in Charlottesville…
however, he was also a slave owner… The University1 has acknowledged its controversial history and we continue to learn from it through open dialogue and civil discourse.
The yet another kind of Marxist Law Center intent on perpetuating Southern Poverty has failed to name "the Black Student Alliance" as a hate group.
Once again founded by the memorialized man in question on his initiative ↩
Buttfinex is gearing up to stuff as much SFYL into their USD "Tether" platform as possible according to a recent post on their blog. The company states that they are "excited to announce the forthcoming launch of Tether USD tokens as an ERC20 token on the Ethereum network" and will be "working with the TREZOR development community to complete the integration for Tether USD" on the trezor hardware wallet, giving the device something else to phone home about. The post went on to address concerns regarding the company's solvency, balking at releasing the full range of audits as they "were not in a form suitable for public consumption". Information for the Taiwan-based auditing firm TOPSUN CPAs & Co. listed in the post, which they claimed handled the audits, could not be found. (archived)
Focusing on "issues of justice and fairness", discredited and disowned enemy of The Republic Preet Bharara (WOT:nonperson) is preparing to launch a new weekly podcast series entitled "Stay Tuned with Preet". The "imwithher" mouthpiece New York Public Radio has picked up the forthcoming series in order to ensure that only delusional liberals listen to Herr Bharara's echo-chamber shannonizing.
Reports are emerging that the developers of the Trezor "hardware wallet" designed their Microsoft Windows driver Trezord.exe to phone home each time it's started. While phoning home it further downloads files from Jeff Bezos presents Washington Post Amazon Web Services servers.
Edit: This behavior also occurs on other platforms when using Trezor's official driver.
Hillary Clinton announced in an interview on the "CBS Sunday Morning" show that she would not be seeking the Democratic party presidential nomination in 2020 following her humiliating defeat which was cemented on June 16, 2016.

Clinton is currently slated to embark upon a nationwide tour to promote her book What Happened which attempts to explain her personal SFYL.
Consumer credit Indenture reporting firm Equifax announced on Thursday that they were hacked sometimes between May and July, and that the personal data of up to 143 million people1 in the U.S. was liberated. The information for some U.K. and Canadian residents was exposed as well. The company says they became aware of the breach on July 29 of this year, and hired an undisclosed cybersecurity firm to investigate.

This is roughly half of them. ↩
