Hacker hits Sacramento Regional Transit system, deletes 30 million files

Published

on

Sacramento Regional Transit system, which controls every aspect of trains and buses in the California state capital, was hacked on Monday. They were forced to stop taking credit card payments and couldn’t assign buses or trains to their routes.

No consumer data was breached in the hack.

After a ransom demand in bitcoin, the hacker changed the text on the homepage to claim a desire to fix their online vulnerability.

“I’m sorry to modify the home page, I’m good hacker, I just want to help you fix these vulnerability.”

Only minor slowdowns in service were reported. The vulnerability has since been addressed.

Setting the record straight on Net Neutrality

Setting the record straight on Net Neutrality

The bottom line about net neutrality is about liberty, freedom, and being able to make a living.  The government is just looking for more ways to control and stifle human freedom.  Socialism knows no bounds, and net neutrality is using pre-internet rules that sound good, but feel good and in the long run does not advance liberty.  But don’t worry, net neutrality might make a come back should the Democrats get back in.

In the meantime, I have several links to commentary that tries to show people that wanting to the state to regulate the internet is not a good ideal. From Senator Ted Cruz to conservative hard rocker Alfonzo Rachel.

Sen. Cruz: ‘The Internet Should Be Free of Taxation, Censorship and Regulation’

https://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=3548“Since its inception, the internet has been an oasis of freedom. It has not only been a haven for free speech but has served as a great equalizer when it comes to jobs and opportunity by dramatically reducing the barriers of entry for anyone with a new idea and broadband connection. The Obama administration’s so-called net neutrality regulations have threatened the very freedom that has allowed the internet to flourish by placing the internet under 83-year-old public utility regulations that gives sweeping power to unelected bureaucrats who would have the ability to dictate every aspect of the internet. Small businesses in Texas and across the country shouldn’t have to seek ‘Mother May I’ permission from unelected bureaucrats to be able to engage in commerce. It’s un-American and has the power to severely limit the creative destruction that has allowed the internet to flourish.

Net Neutrality Isn’t Neutral At All – Foundation for Economic Education – Working for a free and prosperous world

https://fee.org/articles/net-neutrality-isnt-neutral-at-all/Net neutrality has been getting so many “hot takes” lately, it almost makes you wish someone would be non-neutral about this content and block it. These have come during the run-up to today’s Federal Communications Commission vote, which will likely reverse the Commission’s June 2015 reclassification of internet service providers as Title II (of the 1934 Communications Act) telecommunication common carriers.

So-called “edge providers” (like FAMGA – Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon) are contract carriers. They, like a typical market service, provide their content and apps subject to mutual agreement. From the beginning of the commercial internet until the 2015 reclassification, this was true of internet service providers, too. Their reclassification as common carriers, however, made ISPs subject to FCC regulation, like telecommunications companies and other public utilities are. The primary stated aim of this reclassification was to ensure access neutrality for online content.

FCC Restores Market Freedom To the Internet

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/268735/fcc-restores-market-freedom-internet-joseph-kleinThe Federal Communications Commission has jettisoned the heavy-handed regulatory burden placed on a free and open Internet during the Obama administration. The FCC voted 3-2 on December 14th, along party lines, to repeal the so-called “net neutrality” rules adopted by the regulatory agency in 2015. The Obama-era rules had prohibited Internet service providers, such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast as well as smaller Internet service providers, from blocking, slowing access to or charging more (priority pricing) for fast delivery of content above some specified threshold of high bandwidth usage. High-speed delivery of Internet services will no longer be heavily regulated on par with a common carrier utility monopoly service. However, the Internet service providers will have to disclose to the FCC changes to their access policies, which can consider any alleged abuses on a case by case basis. The Federal Trade Commission, which shares antitrust enforcement responsibility with the Department of Justice, will be tasked to take action against any anti-competitive behavior.

Net neutrality is dead. Long live the internet

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/net-neutrality-is-dead-long-live-the-internetYou may be confused. It is a day after the FCC voted 3-2 to end net neutrality rules, and the world has not ended. Nor has the internet. Spoiler alert: Ending net neutrality isn’t going to have any effect on your life at all.

By now you’ve seen posts in your Facebook feed from your liberal friends, and even some of your not-liberal friends buying into the notion that net neutrality being gone is going to kill the internet.

Why big corporations love Net Neutrality

Steven Crowder is not arguing for or against Net Neutrality; however he is posing a question. Why is there selective outrage against evil corporations? Facebook, Google, and Twitter love Net Neutrality however they are all just as bad as the ISPs everyone is calling evil. In fact while Net Neutrality sets regulations for ISP’s treatment of data, these giants are free to throttle data as they see fit. I believe Steven Crowder is presenting a perspective that gets us one step closer to finding a real solution to pressing internet concerns.

People assume that critiquing Net Neutrality is inherently in favor of corporate data throttling and slower internet, but it’s not the case. Net Neutrality has its positives, but doesn’t protect the free internet like people suggest. Under Net Neutrality, the large tech giants have done more censorship and data throttling of content than any ISP ever did before. People need to hear both sides of an issue. Net Neutrality is an issue where both sides are making reasonable arguments(which is becoming rare). So actually discuss it and not panic like all these liberals are doing on Twitter.

Firms reach a $7.8-million settlement over pre-born baby parts, can no longer do business in California

Firms reach a 78-million settlement over pre-born baby parts can no longer do business in California

If it is one thing about adults, there is within their nature to collectively hate children, especially those who have yet to be born and many of them were not given a chance.  They may like their own children (or not), but everyone else’s?  Not so much.  Just gets in the way of down and dirty ‘adult’ fun, you know.

Back in the days of the old testament they did not have (to the best of my knowledge) ways to abort a pregnancy, other than violently beating up a woman.   They did the next best thing, by creating an idol the had the head of the bull and named it Moloch.  Just wait for your child to be born and hand it over Moloch to be burned to death.  Problem solved, now go about your carnal pleasures.  Other cultures had their child death gods as well, but many Christians popularized the bull god more so than even runner-up Baal.

Today we have abortion as a form of child sacrifice, and we have made it no big deal.  After all, we made about a woman’s right to choose.  Until the population control ghouls convinced feminists of that ideal, they saw abortion as a form of children sacrifice.  They were smart to play on the desires of the women that did not want to ’embrace’ “The Feminine Mystique” and try to acquire ‘nice things.’

Well, thanks in part to the Center for Medical Progress two bioscience companies now have to pay up to the DA’s office of Orange County, California, and no longer do business in the state.  At least we try to bring dignity to these children that were never given a chance to live.  Something that even Planned Parenthood fights against.  They have to or their house of cards would fall, and people would see them as the modern child sacrifice practitioners that they are.

Thanks to The Family Leader for making me aware of this story via their Facebook page.  I like their statement they made.

Time to stop pretending this isn’t going on. Babies shouldn’t be scrapped for parts, and a mother’s womb is not a junkyard!

Agreed, but let me add that the mother’s womb is a junkyard more often than not because her other ‘lady parts’ are made into a whorehouse.  Just calling the kettle black kids.

Firms reach $7.8-million settlement over allegations of selling fetal tissue

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-fetal-tissue-20171209-story.htmlTwo bioscience companies have reached a $7.785-million settlement with the Orange County district attorney’s office over allegations that they illegally sold fetal tissue to companies around the world, prosecutors said Friday.

According to the settlement signed Monday, DV Biologics LLC and sister company DaVinci Biosciences LLC, both based in Yorba Linda, must cease all operations in California within 60 to 120 days. The agreement also requires the companies to admit liability for violations of state and federal laws prohibiting the sale or purchase of fetal tissue for research purposes, prosecutors said.
