I’ts no secret that allot of people around the world is trying to hack other peoples computers, be it governments, hacktivists or individual hackers. A company called Norse has generated a live map over these attacks using a vast network of “honeypot” machines that look like legitimate targets for hackers but in reality they are set up to be hacked so that one can track the attacks by monitoring the hacked “honeypots”. on the top of both Attackers and targets USA rests closely followed by China. Check out the map at this page, attacks are visible as “shots” from an attacker to it’s target in real-time.
I just upgraded my gaming computer’s motherboard as step one of the bigger plan to do a major upgrade, and I checked I’m front that both my current CPU and memory (Ram) was compatible with the new board but I was faced with the error nr 50 on the onboard error message display which according to the manual is wrong memory type or wrong memory speed and it took me a few days to figure out what was causing it I tried a few different sticks of memory before I noticed that the error presented itself even with no memory in the board, of cause I tried the latest bios and leaving the battery out over night but nothing changed… So I took out the CPU and gave it a go over and it turned out that it was 2 of the connectors that had been pushed down a bit which had given them a “S” shape on the middle but the tips were straight so it was really hard to notice and fix for that matter, after bit of fiddley work I got them semi straight and sloted it back in and hey presto it works!
