Shame, he put his talent to good use rather than be malicious with it like so many other dirtbags.

Re: Elite hacker Barnaby Jack dies

Hadn't heard that. I actually have a nephew who makes a living doing what Jack did. Used to be for the government, now some banking company. Makes a metric butt-ton of money doing it, too.

Maybe I should have learned a little more about computers rather than stopping once I found out how to get to the porn.

Re: Elite hacker Barnaby Jack dies

A few examples .

" Investigative researchers and journalists should work in teams, for life insurance if not also collaboration. One person holding all the knowledge is too risky (Barnaby Jack, Michael Hastings). Compare to Edward Snowden who announced that he shared copies of files, in anything should happen to him. "

" Never underestimate the extremes that for profit companies will go to when it comes to someone affecting the bottom line. "

" And so it continues.

This is the clandestine aspect of the war on whistleblowers and dissidents. They hit him just like they hit Michael Hastings, and they'll probably hit some more before this programme ends or moves back into a dormant phase.

We're moving into a very dangerous period, the intelligence/military-industrial complex is as out of control as it was in the 1960s when the CIA was bumping people off left, right and centre.

In the 1970s, the Church Committee hearings and Watergate caused Congress to reel them back in... we need that again!"

" Murdered by those whose murders he thwarted. When are we going to turn of the T.V's and take on the forces that threaten all of our lives? Barnaby would know what I'm saying and that's why he's dead. "

" Well, it's interesting that Barnaby Jack had been looking into hacking cars. The Rolling Stone reporter who died in the fiery LA auto crash was driving a Mercedes whose engine could be controlled remotely, along with the controlling the brakes on any individual wheel (steering itself isn't remotely controllable on that model). Combine that with the car's internal GPS location and traffic cameras or footage from an overhead drone, and yeah, a cyber-warfare team could totally send someone into a palm tree at 100 mph. But without steering control, I'm not sure they could do it with enough confidence to make the attempt.

The trouble with a surveillance state is that paranoia becomes justified, just like in the former East Bloc. "

etc. etc .
