Native Client

Native Client is an open-source research technology for running x86 native code in web applications, with the goal of maintaining the browser neutrality, OS portability, and safety that people expect from web apps. We’ve released this project at an early, research stage to get feedback from the security and broader open-source communities. We believe that Native Client technology will someday help web developers to create richer and more dynamic browser-based applications.

Hmm smells fishy…if you dare, make some money too!

Bank robber crowdsources disguise to Craigslist

After taking control of an armored truck by subduing the driver with pepper spray last September, a perpetrator in Monroe, Wash., needed to cover his tracks. Fortunately, he thought ahead by hiring decoys on Craigslist. The job ad offered $28.50 per hour for road maintenance work for anyone who could show up near the Bank of America wearing a yellow vest, safety goggles, a respirator mask and a blue shirt if possible. Roughly a dozen guys showed up, sporting the very outfit the robber was wearing. In a surprising switch to low-tech, the man then escaped down the river via innertube. Police eventually caught up to him in November using DNA evidence.



Did you know…


That there are 2 copies of notepad.exe in Windows? Yes that’s true! Check out Windows\ and Windows\System32 directories and you will see a copy of notepad.exe in each directory! \o/

Conclusion: Microsoft knew all the way that Notepad is the most valuable and appreciated default tool on Windows and put two copies of it in Windows just to make sure.

Notepad FTW!!!
