Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz AKA is every d-bag stereotype in one video

If there was going to be bacon-level pandering I would have expected it to come from Chris Christie. rim shot
OK I'll admit cooking bacon on the muzzle of a firearm is funny. Practical? No. And I wouldn't want that kinda grease all over a firearm. But jesus Cruz you're not cool and never will be… please let that go.

"In Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks." Oh please. I love how they purposefully don't show the pattern of his shots either.

Facebook is "lying, cheating and stealing" in order to establish itself as the world's biggest video website

YouTube star accuses Facebook of cheating to boost video numbers
Hank Green says social network’s attempts to boost video views are ‘based on lies, cheating and theft’

+Hank Green, one half of the epic +vlogbrothers YouTube channel, host of the awesome +SciShow, and brother to the now slightly larger than life +John Green (The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, etc) has flat out called out the social network for "lying, cheating and stealing" in order to establish itself as the world's biggest video website. It's true! If you go to paste a YouTube link for some people it even asks you to instead upload it directly to Facebook. Why? So they can take the views. Sadly, this strips content creators of their revenue streams and Facebook has NO METHOD for them to claim infringement.

The best part of his comments, "It’s a little inexcusable that Facebook, a company with a market cap of $260 BILLION, launched their video platform with no system to protect independent rights holders," Green wrote. "It wouldn’t be surprising if Facebook was working on a solution now which they can roll out conveniently after having made their initial claims at being the biggest, most important thing in video." Yup.

A huge DNS exploit could take down chunks of the internet

Exploits start against flaw that could hamstring huge swaths of Internet
If you haven’t installed Bind update, now would be a good time to do so.

Last week the Internet Systems Consortium released a patch for a serious vulnerability in BIND, one of the most popular Domain Name Servers that’s bundled with Linux.

The incident number CVE-2015-5477 details an exploit that allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to crash DNS servers using BIND by sending a specially crafted command. There’s no specific way to protect against the attack, other than installing the patch immediately.

The attack is reportedly so trivial that a single hacker could take down large chunks of the internet in a single move. All they would need to do is simultaneously crash enough DNS servers to cause a noticeable outage and serious implications for the internet.

Ars Technica reports today that attacks have already begun as the code is available publicly. The attack is now actively being used against public DNS servers to cause them to crash.

If you’re running a BIND DNS server, it’s important to patch as soon as possible to ensure attackers can’t take down your service.
