"Don't buy this hypothesis... They would very likely not have a lack for energy resources since they're traveling the stars. They solved that problem. Being that advanced, they'd also likely be able to synthesize any other resource at a molecular level. So I don't see resources as a motivation, unless humans are the resource (slaves). I could see them being nomads as he imagines, but not looking for resources. More likely just a habitual environment to live, in which case, the Hawking outcome might be the same." Read more

Windows users who install the latest Java security patches may end up with a little more security than they bargained for, at least that's the risk they take if they don't pay close attention to the installation process. Starting last month, Oracle began bundling a security scanning tool called the McAfee Security Scan Plus with its Java updates for the Windows operating system. The software is installed by default with the Java update, so unless users notice and uncheck the McAfee installation box as they're updating Java, they'll end up downloading McAfee's software too.

Java updates for Windows also install McAfee security scanner

Perhaps it was only a matter of time. But wireless security researchers say they have uncovered a vulnerability in the WPA2 security protocol, which is the strongest form of Wi-Fi encryption and authentication currently standardized and available.

The vulnerability, named "Hole 196", lends itself to man-in-the-middle-style exploits, whereby an internal, authorized Wi-Fi user can decrypt, over the air, the private data of others, inject malicious traffic into the network and compromise other authorized devices using open source software.
