New Encryption Chip That Will End Game Piracy

Speaking at Wedbush Morgan Securities annual Management Access Conference,
Atari founder said that gaming piracy will soon be a thing in the past thanks to this new chip


"There's a new stealth encryption chip that will be on most of the computer motherboard that are coming out now" he said.


According to him, the game developer will be able to encrypt their game with an absolutely verifiable private key which is uncrackable by people.

"What that says is that in the games business we will be able to encrypt with an absolutely verifiable private key in the encryption world - which is uncrackable by people on the internet and by giving away passwords - which will allow for a huge market to develop in some of the areas where piracy has been a real problem."


He however thinks that piracy of movies and music are unstoppable.

"if you can watch it and you can hear it, you can copy it."

"Games are a different thing, because games are so integrated with the code. The TPM will, in fact, absolutely stop piracy of gameplay."

Wow that looks like a challenge XD. I would like to see the outcome

Shape-Shifting Malware Hits the Web

Stony Stevenson writes to tell us that in a recent interview, Marc Henauer has revealed that security researchers are falling behind now that malware is starting to be able to change its signature every few hours.


Unfortunately the know-how and construction kits used to create this shape-shifting threat are now readily available and are unleashing a wave of malware based on social engineering techniques. [...] Sweeney believes that a non rules-based monitoring process must be set up to defend all ingress and egress points covering SMTP, DNS, HTTP(s), IM etc.

Dell Will Continue to Install XP Past of Cut-off Date

Some facts from the Article


Fact 1: As of June 30, large computer manufacturers such as Dell and Hewlett-Packard can no longer offer Windows XP preinstalled on new computers, though Microsoft has said it would consider re-evaluating the deadline if there's enough customer demand.



Fact 2: Anyone who buys a copy of either the Business or Ultimate versions of Vista is entitled to also get Windows XP Professional .* Each computer manufacturer decides whether, or how, to implement this.



According to CNet, Dell will continue to install Windows XP for you on their PC even after the date given by Microsoft.


When selecting your operating system, you will see an option called "Genuine Windows® Vista Business BONUS" and "Genuine Windows Vista Ultimate BONUS." With these options, you may...have Dell factory install Windows XP Professional. You will also receive a backup media disc for Windows XP Professional, as well as the media for Windows Vista.



In other words, Dell provides optical discs for both XP and Vista, so you can change over at any time. This is not like

Apple's Boot Camp
, however; the computer can have only one operating installed on the hard disk at a time. But Dell provides technical support for both XP and Vista. Whether its tech support is worthwhile is another matter.

I hope other company will follow their steps to continue supporting XP at least until it became "more stable and worthy" (well.. even XP got their own problem back then when Microsoft first release it).

not to you.. especially not to you

Drathos writes "From MTV Movies Blog by way of WoW Insider: Everyone's least favorite director, Uwe Boll approached Blizzard about making a World of Warcraft movie. Their response? "We will not sell the movie rights, not to you ... especially not to you.""


Source : Slashdot

Well I'd say thank god! For anyone who didnt know who's Uwe Boll, he's a director, producer and screenwriter that has created lots of bad films (yes! i mean it.. BAD) based on video games.. here's a some of his films :

  • Alone In The Dark
  • House of The Dead
  • Bloodrayne I & II (and currently making the 3rd)
According to wikipedia..

"When rumors surfaced that Boll had expressed interest in a Metal Gear Solid movie, and claimed to have been given a script to read, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima responded in his audioblog HIDECHAN, "Absolutely not! I don't know why Uwe Boll is even talking about this kind of thing. We've never talked to him. It's impossible that we'd ever do a movie with him.""
