On Sunday, the New York Times published a seemingly routine report about Obama’s cyber offensive strategy. Hiding halfway down the page, however, there are some fascinating details about the decision-making process behind a potential US cyber retaliation against Russia.
While discussing polling numbers at a rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday, Donald Trump offhandedly accused Google of manipulating search results in favor of rival Hillary Clinton, because hey, why not?
The White House just released new guidelines that detail how the federal government will respond to large scale hacks, including details on how it gauges the significance of particular hacks. The new plan specifically deals with major cyber breaches “affecting the homeland, US capabilities, or US interests.” It makes…
A man buying coffee has a bad case of the dizzies, which honestly happens to me fairly regularly before I consume caffeine in the morning. But if you think he just needs his cup of morning java then hoo boy have you got the wrong show. This is CSI-Fucking:Cyber and we are about to witness some INTERNET CRIME.
I pride myself on being able to figure out twists on network procedurals, but I hope this is the first and last time I have to type these objectively humiliating lines: CSI:Cyber really pulled the rug out from under me in tonight’s episode! I was genuinely surprised by what I perceived to be an unexpected twist!
CSI:Cyber is Gizmodo’s new favorite terrible tech-tinged procedural that may or may not be written by people who have never actually seen a computer. It’s great! This compilation of buzzwords from the fourth and fifth episodes of this season is a nonsense cacophony.
Today, cyber means war. But back in the 1990s, it meant sex — at least, the kind of sex you can have in a chat room. Why did the word change, and where did it originally come from?
A new study suggests that so-called cybercriminals — people who commit crimes related to computer data — are going to cool it over the next few years. Why? Because they watch CSI. It's one of the most entertainingly awful examples of science you'll ponder today.
Before President Barack Obama gave his State of the Union and shouted out 3D printing, he signed a new cybersecurity executive order with the goal of preventing cyber attacks by allowing companies and the government to share information they have on cyber threats.
Skyfall, the latest Bond flick, wasn't just a fun movie — it also featured the only Bond villain who used evil cyberhacking as the main weapon in his arsenal. Of course movie hacking is rarely accurate (except for that shining moment when Trinity used nmap in The Matrix Reloaded), but it's still fun to pick apart…
If it wasn't true before, it's definitely true now. Hacking isn't just for giggles, it's a major threat to international security.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's address book—including the names, phone numbers, and addresses of members of government, plus Blair's own National Insurance Number—was apparently leaked to the public by a group of hackers on Friday.
Seymour Hersh's recent peek inside "cyber warfare" possibly affirms two things we kinda already knew: people are easily spooked, and there's plenty of money to be made by spooking them. The story, oddly, starts with some hot coffee.
Here's a video that reflects what most people saw at Comic-Con when Disney debuted some footage for the Tron sequel (spelled Tr2n, which is, like, not even real 7331 speak, people — couldn't you have gone with Tr0n?). Anyway, if you are slavering to see some light cycles zooming across a screen from a great distance,…
Nick writes in to tell us that Wired's Jenna Wortham has posted a great gallery of crawly machine creatures by Christopher Conte. Here you can see an insect he made from the parts of old Singer sewing machines. Check out his other amazing stuff, like a Terminator-looking hand and a skull opened up to reveal a…
The CYBER Familator Lite is an Akihabara-esque gizmo that snaps onto your DS Lite and lets you play old Famicom cartridges on your DS screen (If you can hunt down an adapter, you can play NES games as well). I think we should forget the Familator Lite is bigger than the DS, and that an emulator can do the same thing,…
