    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    SSL 3.0 why do you have to be that way

    Sort of kind of new/ish security flaw found in SSL 3.0

    http://www.computerworld.com/article...ampaign=buffer


    Infosec researchers have found a new nasty TLS downgrade attack. While we all knew these old versions of SSL crypto were insecure, it's always been thought hard to walk away. But now there's new evidence that cutting off SSL is necessary.
    Well if you thought it was ok to still be on Windows XP and IE 6 you sort of kind of deserve it.

    You would be surprised.

    Also you would be surprised how many XP machines are still out their especially in the embedded segments of the market.

    A lot of your Point of Sale terminals still have XP and IE 6 on them.

    A lot of ATMs are also running XP embedded but I am seeing a push to bring them up to 7 right now.

    Hell my wife just did a projected for a major defense contractor they still had 3.1 95, 98, XP, NT, 2k machines that they have no upgraded because they run very specific applications. They of course are not allowed on anything but isolated networks but that is inside of a company that is very security conscious. You would be surprised what you will find out their in industry. Especially when it comes to engineering software packages.
    A company can easily be using a very old program because its what they started out using and don't want to have to convert all of their old models and drawing to a new format.

    3.1. I don't even know how to react to that. That's over 20 years old. That's like still using a Commodore 64. That is madness.

    I have actually seen a commodore 64 in use in industry pumping out NC code.

    BTW did you know Amiga is still a thing?

    I am actually looking for a free Power Mac G5 to run it just for shits and giggles.

    And now I am browsing the "vintage computing" section of Ebay. This looks like more modern project of fun: http://pi-top.com/

    I really need to get in on the RaspberryPi. Could make for a fun emergency solar powered laptop.

    That is a lot of money for what pretty much amounts to a toy.
