A mysterious botnet has hijacked 300,000 devices, but nobody knows why

Researchers know what the botnet is capable of — but they don't seem to know what it'll actually do.

Ignoring criticism from all sides, FCC chairman Ajit Pai announced today a plan to roll back net neutrality in the US.

In a statement issued today, the FCC brazenly announced that "Chairman Pai is now setting the FCC on a course to fix the problems that the prior FCC created," albeit the vast majority of the US consumerbase has shown its support for the current legislation, adopted in February 2015.

"Earlier today, I shared with my fellow Commissioners a proposal to reverse the mistake of Title II and return to the light-touch regulatory framework that served our nation so well during the Clinton Administration, the Bush Administration, and the first six years of the Obama Administration," Pai wrote in a separate statement.

Current News / Do you know where your old email addresses are?

"...Whenever old email addresses get killed off, even ones you think you’re done with altogether, you may nevertheless end up in trouble if you are in the habit of “autoforwarding” your old addresses whenever you switch to a new provider, rather than explicitly shutting those old addresses down.

(You don’t need to shut them down instantly, but you need to make a plan to discontinue them after a while, and then stick to that plan.)

In particular, you could end up in serious trouble if you leave an old email address set up as the password recovery destination for any of your online accounts..."
