Friday follies

Hacker brags about breaking into Army computers on national TV, hilarity ensues

Any by "hilarity", I mean "jail time":

A French hacker who boasted of breaking into the systems of a government security contractor on national television has suffered some unsurprising consequences.

The alleged miscreant, identified only as Carl, appeared on a programme called Complément d'enquête (Further Investigation) to demonstrate how he broke into the network of the French Army and Thales, the information security group, at the start of April.

He was arrested in Paris six days later on 7 April, reportedly following a complaint by Thales. Investigating police reportedly recovered credit card and bank account data from his computer.
Fifteen minutes of fame, baby.

Smile, you're on Candid Camera

So don't steal that iPad:
If you’re looking for the perfect place to commit a stealth crime, you could do a lot better than ISC West 2011, one of the biggest security trade shows.

For some reason, though, a man who entered the hall at the Sands Expo and Convention Center last week, dressed in a Philip Rivers San Diego Chargers T-shirt and using a fake badge, decided to press his luck, despite the presence of cameras up and down every aisle, many of them with overhead capabilities and the ability to zoom in on even the tiniest detail.
They have the video there.  Fifteen minutes of fame, baby.

Save the planet with a "carbon neutral" brasiere

What cup size does Mother Gaia sport?  Hey, don't save the Planet, save the Ta-Tas!

Oregon Legislature gets Rickrolled

Well played.  So very well played.

We don't buy much sugar around our place so Mrs. Graybeard was shocked to find this at the store yestereday.

Carbon-free sugar? Isn't that a bag of water??
