Living on borrowed time?
When it comes to being intentionally drugged by gangsters or drug dealers the first thing you think is you have completely lost your mind or you need psychological help. Especially when you know yourself so well that you don’t do drugs and that your straight and narrow, you go to work five days a week and you’re an everyday person. It happens to everyone as far as I am concerned some gangster punk or street level drug dealer might be in competition with another gang or drug dealer. So they have to take territory which is an entire neighborhood or part of the neighborhood, your house maybe in the center of the debacle. But just remember your house and you in it was there before the competition began between two sparring criminal factions or two individual criminals so don’t start blaming yourself for the whole thing and feeling guilty about it.
The one thing that any gang member or drug dealer will do is they will start to drug households that are lacking without a home security system. Households that get targeted are usually positioned in neighborhoods that would be low income and lower middle class where financial resources are limited. The easiest target in a house when it comes to being intentionally drugged is in the bathroom because you brain wash yourself when you get up in the morning to shower. Which means illicit street drugs will get dumped into your shampoo and body wash bottles by gang members and drug dealers because most illicit street drugs can absorb into the skin quite instantaneously.
The one piece of advice I can give to you is purchasing litmus paper anywhere off the internet to test to see whether or not your showering products are laced with drugs.
Smart meters are “dangerously insecure,” according to researcher Netanel Rubin – who claimed the gear uses weak encryption, relies on easily pwned protocols, and can be programmed to explode.
The software vulnerability hunter derided global efforts to roll out the meters as reckless, saying the “dangerous” devices are a risk to all connected smart home devices. Smart meters can communicate with networked devices inside homes, such as air conditioners, fridges, and the like. A hacker who could infiltrate the internet-connected meters could control those gadgets and appliances and potentially unlock doors. They could also manipulate the meter’s code to cause fires, something that’s trivially easy using mains supplies, Rubin claimed. You’d be forgiven for thinking fuses would prevent such a blaze, although the researcher is convinced the hardware can be tricked into overexerting itself and exploding. “An attacker who controls the meter also controls its software, allowing them to literally blow the meter up,” he told the Chaos Communications Congress in Hamburg, Germany, earlier this month.
“If an attacker could hack your meter, he could have access to all the devices connected to the meter. The smart meter network in its current state is completely exposed to attackers.” Rubin was accused of fear-mongering by the conference’s audience. He shot back that he wanted to grab the public’s attention with dire warnings of exploding boxes – claims that reminded El Reg of an old infamousWorld Weekly News spoof.
Why it might be a good idea to use strong passphrases to secure internet routing devices. Because if you set it to the default password then what will happen is foreign and domestic adversaries will take advantage of your good will and fuck your shit up literally with a few keystrokes.
In late April, the top federal cybersecurity agency, US-CERT, announced that Russian hackers had attacked internet-connected devices throughout the U.S., including network routers in private homes. Most people set them up – or had their internet service provider set them up – and haven’t thought much about them since. But it’s the gateway to the internet for every device on your home network, including Wi-Fi connected ones. That makes it a potential target for anyone who wants to attack you, or, more likely, use your internet connection to attack someone else.
As graduate students and faculty doing research in cybersecurity, we know that hackers can take control of many routers, because manufacturers haven’t set them up securely. Router administrative passwords often are preset at the factory to default values that are widely known, like “admin” or “password.” By scanning the internet for older routers and guessing their passwords with specialized software, hackers can take control of routers and other devices. Then they can install malicious programs or modify the existing software running the device.
How To Know Whether Your Being Hacked By An Adversary
This is one method for knowing whether your being hacked by an adversary is when you hear radio static human feedback from your wireless routing device. Because as I have come to realize it myself is that anything that operates at 2.4 GHz (UHF) and 5 GHz (SHF) from a wireless routing device can be intercepted using a software defined radio.
