Let’s hack Czech Republics Central Bank and Prague Stock Exchange!

Alright! Peanuts! Check! Coffee! Check! News running on tv! Check! It sounds not very scary is it? But imagine that with it or without some closer unindentified chaps have made quite a big rumble in Czech republic. Well how? Where? What? I'll tell you! Simply by breaking to Czech Republics Central Bank website and doing a 'little' tornado out there. Unfortunately operators of Central Bank website along with their hosting provider are kinda sleazy and completely uninformed on how to defend such an important institution from being hacked, of course... in my... o...tshh... . Then... put back the site online - hosting provider fails once again. Anyways let's stop this accusing and get back on the track saying what actually happened out there. We're 6th March 2013 today. Around closer unindentified time a group of hackers decide to wham into Central Bank website along with Prague Stock Exchange website (and a couple of others including big news gamers within Czech Republic). Things get smelly very quickly and the sites are down. Attack used - DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service). Hopefully the attacks didn't endanger financial acounts of any of the banks or stock exchange according to Jiri Kovarik, spokesman at the Prague Stock Exchange. The police operating in the area of Czech republic is unable to locate hackers whereabouts and put them to criminal proseccution after analysing the attacks on Wednesday 6th March 2013. In my opinion these attacks were made to show and prove something and not to actually interupt any of the two institutes financial operations. If hackers would want to interupt them - they would choose to break into trading platforms etc. which they haven't done...yet.

Windows 8 – It’s a DISASTER!

It always takes a couple of years for developers to prepare the next-gen OS for us users and even few more years to make the majority of them switch to it. Reason? For those first - it's money, for those second - it's another change. Not from yesterday we know that people usually don't like changes. Microsoft itself kept the simple interface of 'Windows' for over 2 decades and have gained a lot of fans despite BSOD's (Blue Screens of Death), compatibility problems, viruses, unlogical errors etc. General public could taste a lil' bit of Microsoft's new child on April 12, 2011. It was one of the first builds and unfortunately for Microsoft - it leaked to internet.
The wave of negative opinions began with the more stable Windows 8 that was released on September 13, 2011 (build 8102 - Windows 8 Developer Preview) and presented the majority of Metro UI.

I'll make a little pause in here and squeeze a tiny notice of mine - there's something strange going on with Microsoft from time to time. Let's start from the beginning - we have a Windows 98 in 1998 which repeated the success of Windows 95. Two years later we have Windows Millenium Edition which was a complete failure according to users. Then we have Windows XP which was a huge success of Microsoft. Successor of the Win XP was Vista which again was a huge failure. As you probably noticed - sinusoidal trend loves Microsoft Company.

Back to the subject - I have a feeling that Microsoft have made Windows 8 just to fill the 'hole' that appeared after introducing Apple's latest OS. Windows 8 seems to be a mix of unthought development actions and ideas invented in a rush. In one moment someone inside their company woke up and said 'dayumm guys this is hella unconvenient and illogical, what we do now?!'. Well... what would they do? Simple! Invest huge amounts of Woodrow Wilson's in the advertisment campaign and convince everyone that Windows 8 is exactly what they need in the times of economical crisis. Users get frustrated, Microsoft counts economic losses and the future of Windows 8 is unknown. Hundreds of people willing to pay even $125 just for a simple downgrade to Windows 7 doesn't seem to be good news for gigant from Redmond. Windows 8 seems to be another OS like Millenium or Vista which people will want to replace after first 30 minutes of using. Pretty sad cause we've started to believe that Redmond will serve us another Mac OS for half of the price.
