FBI warns banks about ATM cash-out scheme.

Seriously, if a phishing attack is granting that much access, there's something wrong with your internal security. To access things like ATM withdrawal limits, there should be MFA required to access that, even if someone has breached the firewall.

GoG dudes are saints. Goddamn fucking saints.

Of course I have 600 games on Steam (a lot from bundles), but I have 100 games on GoG, too. And I always look there first these days.

Pssssh. $2 million.

Star Citizen is about to break $200 million. Obviously Phoenix Point did it wrongly. They needed to sell virtual stuff for actual money (even if you could acquire it in-game later):

- VX Grenade Gun: $75 USD. Gas those baddies back to Dimension X from day 1! Normally takes a week of game time to acquire.

- Titanium Power Armor: $150 USD Start the game with the ultimate Earth armor that would otherwise take a month of gameplay to acquire!

- Firebird Spy Drone: $100 USD Gives players twice the view distance otherwise allowed!

- Flaming Eagle Dropship $300 USD Start off with the ultimate dropship Earth has to offer: autotracking Volcano autocannon, Fire-And-Forget Vampire missiles, holds eight fully-equipped soldiers!

Hmm, I wonder which one will come out first, and which one will be more interesting to play...

Awesome, just snagged it!

*Goes to add it, already has it. 32 minutes played.*

IIRC there's a way to play this alone with and against bots. It's a pain to implement though (via command line) so I ended up not putting much time into it. I'll get Sandstorm though if they offer offline vs. bots there too.

Admittedly I really don't like superhero movies all that much, but I do watch all the Marvel ones now as they are super good. I could care less about anything DC, really. But, why is there such a backlash over this woman? She was good in the XXX movie and John Wick. She's good looking. Was Batwoman a different skin color or something? I mean, wtf?

Edit, read story. So...she comes off as gay, turns out she is gay, and she's...NOT GAY ENOUGH?

PC culture, man. Just, fuck it.

What? I thought the whole point of "acting" was the ability to portray someone you are not. Now, in order to act, you have to be exactly like the person you are portraying?
In her defense, I'm pretty Ruby doesn't dress up in a batsuit and fight crime in real life, so there's that.

Twitter may be the greatest collection of stupid the world has ever seen...
Can't really disagree. The problem imo is with Twitter's design: the limited number of characters don't allow for nuance or context, so it's easy to miscommunicate or be misunderstood.

I kinda like Daniel Craig's portrayal best -- darker, with Bond being a bit of a damaged man..

craig's caged animal act is getting a bit old. i'm ready for the sophistication elba would bring (i hope).

Watch Luther, then decide. Caged animal on full display.

Example scenario:

<Gamer customer contacts Bethesda>

Gamer says: Items are missing from the package contents. WTF?

* Bethesda invests resources to acknowledge and investigate.

Bethesda says: So, that's why. Your game isn't actually new, even though you thought it was new. It was re-shrinked-wrapped and you were mislead.

Gamer says: No no. It's new. I demand these items.

---

So, I'm guessing Bethesda has had enough of these scenarios to occur that they've started to take action on sellers like Pete.

this...this is actually a good point, and the most logical reason for Bethesda's behavior. I'm not saying they're always logical, I'm saying THIS MAKES SENSE from a support cost perspective. SORT OF. How much does it cost them to hunt down and stop sellers, is it more or less than the CSR call time for people saying they should have stuff that isn't in the container?
You would think that he would cite that as evidence. He doesn't though.

Censorship has historically been a great idea, kudos CNN

Completely agree. When CNN has stories about Stormy Daniels, they censor themselves by not showing her explicit videos. Shame!

eh she was never that hot even in her prime days. not saying i'd kick her out of bed, but as porn stars go there are/were much hotter ones.

Yeah, she's not my type at all. Just trying to point out that editorial decisions aren't censorship.

Imagine if Pete worked for Trojan:

"He's not trying to sell a secondhand condom, he's trying to sell a new condom," he told me. "He was listing the product as if it was new. All we're saying is if it's a previously owned product, you have to sell it as a previously owned product - you cannot represent it's new because we have no way to verify what you're selling actually is new.

"You could have opened it up, used it for five hours, taken whatever inserts or stuff was in there, put it back in shrink wrap and said, 'Hey this is new.' It's not new - you owned it, you bought it, so just list it as a used title. That's it, that's the end of the argument.
