FOR THE PAST year and a half, the FBI has been using a secret scoring system to judge the likelihood that someone will carry out a violent attack. The survey, called Indicators of Mobilization to Violence, assigns points based on factors like religious observance, travel history, financial transactions, and physical appearance.
A copy of the survey in a classified FBI document was obtained by The Intercept.
The survey itself consists of 48 questions that agents are supposed to answer about terror suspects as part of an investigation. The document also includes a set of frequently asked questions about the scoring system aimed at agents working counterterrorism investigations.
According to the document, the program was rolled out in the fall of 2015.
Many of the questions in the survey have obvious relevance to whether someone is plotting a violent act, such as whether the person has access to weapons, has trained or fought overseas, or has tried to acquire bomb-making materials.
Attackers have found a way to escalate the benign WordPress REST API flaw and use it to gain full access to a victim’s server by installing a hidden backdoor.
On January 26, the WordPress team released WordPress 4.7.2, which contained a secret fix that addressed a vulnerability in the WordPress REST API.
Discovered by Sucuri, this flaw affected WordPress 4.7.0 and 4.7.1 and allowed an attacker to craft malicious HTTP requests that when sent to a WordPress site would allow the hacker to bypass authentication methods and alter the title and content of blog posts and static pages.
Over 2 million pages defaces via WordPress REST API flaw
Because the WordPress team feared attackers would exploit this flaw right away, they didn’t include details about the bug in the original announcement and only revealed its presence after a week, after a substantial number of users had updated their blogs.
Attention to detail is important, and when youre a designer it naturally becomes a part of your everyday focus. A number of small details come together and the design becomes a sum of all parts – both functional and beautiful. This is certainly the case with the Dirt Nap – Designed by Ben McTavish it is a thing of unquestionable beauty, but whose good looks stem from a need for versatility in the water. Its narrow waist brings trim speed, its soft rails bring a seamless transition through turns, and its defined nose concave generates lift when you need it most.
The construction of the Dirt Nap continues this detail theme. A unique clustered 3 stringer glue-up, a white or pastel 8oz pigment deck and rails, wide laps and an 8oz volan insert form the base, then work in with more subtle details like the clear glass-on leash loop and pin-line free lamination, which showcases Bill McLeans perfect cut-laps. Simplicity forms the basis for this model, and as such there are only 3 available sizes and 3 available colours.
A board of such calibre deserves a rider and a clip to match, so weve chosen Byron Bays own Josie Prendergast, and award-winning local film-maker Stefan Jose to introduce to you, the 2017 Dirt Nap.

Den unika domen mot Bredbandsbolaget, som innebär att företaget måste blockera piratsajter eller åläggas vite på en halv miljon kronor, får starka reaktioner efter beskedet på måndagen. Jag är mållös. Ingen var beredd på det här, säger IT-journalisten Emanuel Karlsten.Emanuel Karlsten är IT-journalist på Breakit.se, och har bevakat frågor om nätneutralitet, medier och sociala medier under flera års tid. Han menar att Patent- och marknadsöverdomstolens besked om att piratsajter ska blockeras av internetoperatörer slagit ner som en bomb i branschen. Jag är mållös. Man trodde verkligen inte att det här skulle ske, jag tror knappt att rättighetsinnehavarna själva var beredda på det här, säger han till Kulturnyheterna.
