懷舊技術系列...

在「Stopping The Internet Of Noise - A Useful Internet Back Again」這邊看到作者在思考現在的工具有很多干擾 (像是 Social Network 這樣的網站),反倒是傳統的一些技術與工具更專注在解決問題本身。 像是 Usenet: IRC: RSS reader: 有種考古懷舊系列的感覺... 題外化,看到他用的是 BazQux 這個 RSS reader,來測試看看感覺如何,如果可以的話就從 Feedly 換過去好了...

拿 Twitter 當作 Botnet 橋樑的惡意軟體

在「Twitoor First Android Twitter-based Botnet」這邊看到的消息,原報導在「First Twitter-controlled Android botnet discovered」。 相較於 IRC 控制來得難以被偵測。因為 IRC 的特性比較好抓 (無論是 Protocol 或是 IP address),而 Twitter 卻是一般人就常常會上的網站 (而且是 HTTPS),暫時沒想到太簡單的方法從網路層面偵測... 其實同樣道理可以用其他大的平台做 (像是 GitHub 也是可能的平台),不知道網路層上要怎麼防比較有效...
