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.
