    Looks like the hackers also took three Sony movies (Annie, Still Alice, and Mr Turner) that have yet to hit US theaters.

    I don't know if this is the proper place to put this but it has to deal with the Sony hack.

    Some Sony emails have surfaced that occurred sometime between Feb and I believe October of this year that detail the falling out of the planned Steve Jobs film. In the email exchange Angelina Jolie's name comes up because she wanted to steal away the director from the Jobs film to direct her Cleopatra movie and drama ensues to the point where Angelina gets called a "Spoiled Brat" among other things.

    Now, that is what I call a hack. Back in my day, more than feelings got hurt during a hacking.

    ISIS hacks US Centcom's Twitter
    http://rt.com/usa/221927-central-com...ybercaliphate/
    A statement posted on the website Pastebin shared by the compromised CENTCOM account announced:

    “US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you.

    You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now.

    We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children.

    US soldiers! We're watching you!”

    Stupid empty threats like that and what happened in France last week are little things that push me to considering getting a concealed weapons permit. Don't think we'll be having ISIS running around shooting up Miami any time soon, but if there moment were to arise, wouldn't we want to be ready?

    That is one thing I questioned in BG Chat when this incident happened due to curiosity. We can clearly see scared people taking shelter on the top floor of that building and then having the opportunity to film that.

    Had this incident taken place in the US, and correct me if wrong but I believe a lot of people own guns over there (depending on state?), would Americans, knowing full well they're terrorists (rather than a random white/black guy with a gun) hesitate to gun them down or get into a possible firefight? (as these 2 killers were rather heavily armed).

    While we didn't really speak much about this further, someone, I forget who, just suggested no, they'll run away lol.While that is plausible, half of me does think (in a stereotypical manner) a lot of people are itching to use their guns. Hope this doesn't slip into that gun thread territory -- but I do wonder if the reaction would be different and people will switch into "defend" or " 'murica!" mode and go crazy.

    Also in such a scenario, if a bystander with a gun does kill the terrorist would he be ostracized as a murderer who shouldn't be carrying a gun (i.e. he didn't have a permit to do so in the first place) or hailed as a hero for preventing the terrorist from murdering more people?

    Depends where you are in the US. Concealed carry is much less common in some areas than others. Also, iirc the studies on whether concealed carry actually protects the carrier are conflicted at best or tend towards no.

    Wont derail the thread into gun topic, but in my opinion and to echo Byr up there from things I have read it doesn't work out like the fantasy that most have in their heads of them saving the day. Sure it happens but most often they actually harm themselves or others instead of stopping a major threat. Not to mention that if/when police storm the building it's kind of hard to tell if you are the guy who saved the day, or the gunman who needs to be put down immediately.

    Well, typically people who stage these kinds of attacks have more than a side arm. Shouldn't be terribly difficult to make the distinction

    I can see your reasoning here and it does make sense. I didn't take the possibly of the "wanna be hero" harming others besides the terrorists themselves. Makes sense, especially for people with no formal training.... yeh. Agreed.

    In a turnabout.

    In fact, these Lizard geniuses are so inexperienced at coding that they inadvertently exposed information about all of their 1,700+ registered users (more on this in a moment).
    Reminds me of a little something famous here on BG.

    Raptr compromised
    Maintaining the highest level of security around your Raptr account information is of the utmost importance to us, so we're very sorry to inform you that some Raptr user data may have been recently compromised in an attack similar to hacking activities that have targeted other high-profile sites and services such as Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network.

    User names, email addresses, password hashes, and some first and last names may have been accessed. This means that although the passwords are hashed, users with weak passwords are vulnerable to unauthorized access. It's important to note that our two-factor authentication system used for redeeming Raptr Reward Points ensures that even if your Raptr account was among those compromised, the points you've earned as a Raptr member are protected.

    Although the potential risk to Raptr users is pretty minimal, we urge you to access any accounts on other sites and services in which you use the same login and password associated with your Raptr account and change the related password(s) immediately.

    Reset your password at your earliest convenience in order to help safeguard your Raptr account. In doing so, we strongly advise you to use a password that is reasonably complex and not associated with another site/service account.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Raptr's Customer Service group.

    We're extremely sorry about this situation and are committed to further improving account security going forward.

    Sincerely,

    Dennis Fong
    Founder & CEO, Raptr
