Targeting the Black Hat network itself will immediately anger the NoC, however.The team has found all manner of malware pinging command and control servers over its network, some intentional, and some from unwittingly infected delegates. We'll burst in and say anyone who's MAC address ends with this, clean up your machine, Stump says.Training is by far the most expensive part of a hacker conference. Of the 71 training sessions running over the weekend past ahead of the Black Hat main conference, each cost between US$2500 (£1887, A$3287) and US$5300 (£4000, A$6966) with many students having the charge covered by generous bosses.So it was to this writer's initial incredulity that most of the sea of weird porn flowing through the Black Hat pipes stems from randy training students. It is more than it should ever be, Wyler says of the Vegas con's porn obsession. While you are at a training class – I mean it's not even during lunch.The titillating tidbit was noticed when one Black Hat NoC cop hacked together a script to pull and project random images from the network traffic on Fish Bowl monitors. A barrage of flesh sent the shocked operators into laughing fits of alt-tab. Another moment was captured when Stump was filmed for on CNN Money and a shopper's blowup doll appeared with perfect timing.

Black Hat's NoC started as an effective but hacked-together effort by a group of friends just ahead of the conference. Think Security Onion, intrusion detection running on Kali, and Openbsd boxes.Now they have brought on security and network muscle, some recruited from a cruise through the expo floor, including two one-gigabit pipes from CenturyLink with both running about 600Mbps on each. We were used to being a group of friends hanging out where a lot of stuff happened on site, and now we've brought in outsiders, Stump says.Ruckus Wireless, Fortinet, RSA and CenturyLink are now some of the vendors that help cater to Black Hat's more than 70 independent networks. It's shenanigans, Wyler says. But we love it.The pair do not and cannot work on the DEF CON networks since they are still being built during Black Hat, but they volunteer nonetheless leading and helping out with events, parties, and demo labs. I feel a responsibility to give back to the community which feeds me, Wyler says. That's why we put in the late nights. Comment As your humble HPC correspondent for The Register, I should probably be running Linux on the array of systems here at the home office suite. But I don't. I've been a Microsoft guy since I bought my first computer way back in 1984.

You, dear readers, can rip me for being a MStard, but it works worked well for my business and personal needs.I've had my ups and downs with the company, but I think I've received good value for my money and I've managed to solve every problem I've had over the years.Yesterday was the day that I marked on my calendar as Upgrade to Windows 10 Day. We currently have four systems in our arsenal here, two laptops and two desktops.The laptops are Lenovo R61 and W510 systems, and the desktops are a garden variety box based on an Asus P7P55D Pro motherboard. The other desktop is my beloved Hydra 2.0 liquid cooled, dual-processor, monster system based on the EVGA Classified SR-2 motherboard. These details turn out to be important in our story.The first problem arose with the Asus desktop. Windows 10 was supposedly choking on trying to upgrade while Acronis backup was installed. Even though we removed Acronis, removed all registry entries, used a cleanup utility, and even performed a quick exorcism – Windows 10 still said it was there. Same problem on the Lenovo laptops.

This prompted us to bring Microsoft tech support into the loop. We quickly got past first line support and were promoted to second line – now we'll get the answers we need.Well, yes and no. We got some answers, just not the answers we wanted. According to Microsoft, since there weren't specific Windows 10 drivers out there for the Asus board and R61 laptop, it would be impossible to upgrade them to Windows 10.(This didn't explain the Acronis error, I repeatedly pointed out, but this was never addressed in our text chain, and later, in our phone call.)Impossible? What the hell? was my response. Travel faster than the speed of light is impossible, sure, but doing this upgrade certainly doesn't fall into the impossible category.The bottom line from Microsoft tech support is that if there isn't a Windows 10-specific version of the bios for your particular PC, you're sh*t out of luck when it comes to Windows 10.It's the drivers, according to the third-level support person I managed to get on the phone. But what about the generic drivers that every version of Windows includes? Microsoft doesn't write drivers was the response from him. Huh? Of course they do.

So now three out of four of our PCs are suddenly obsolete in the Windows world. But what about the fourth? That's a different story. Hydra hasn't had a bios update in years, but it still took Windows 10 without a problem – even without a Windows 10-specific version of the bios.Admittedly, all of these systems are fairly old, so I wouldn't necessarily expect the manufacturers to spend time/money to build new bios versions for these boards.But Microsoft could fix these problems by putting more backward compatibility into the Windows 10 code base. They did it with other versions of the venerable OS – why not now? From using Windows 10 on Hydra, it seems more of an evolution of Windows 7 than something completely new and different.Sure, there could be different, non-Windows 7-like things happening under the hood that I don't see, but that stuff can be translated via software routines in order to make it run on older hardware.I predict that legions of users are facing the same problems as I saw today, and that they won't be happy to see their free upgrade hopes dashed.

Analysis Intel's non-volatile memory product revenues are diving as it converts to 3D NAND and waits for XPoint to deliver the goods.Intel’s second quarter 2016 flash revenues of $554m were down 20 per cent year-on-year and one per cent sequentially.Analyst haus Stifel Nicolaus' MD, Aaron Rakers, charted Intel’s quarterly flash product revenues and we can immediately see a four quarter decline.The company talks about a challenging price environment and we would point out it, and flash foundry partner Micron, are late into 3D NAND, which is being popularised by Samsung, with its 48-layer technology.This means, in general, that Samsung can supply flash capacity more cheaply than Intel/Micron as its flash wafers have three bits per cell whereas Intel/Micron’s have two bits per cell.

The client computing 850 EVO SSD from Samsung now has up to 4TB of capacity using 48-layer 3D TLC NAND for the 4TB model. Its the first 4TB PC/laptop SSD. Lenovo is now also shipping its own Atsani* M.2 NVMe SSDs. Both these data points indicates how flash drive supply is broadening and competition intensifying.Intel is also facing the winding down of an SSD supply contract to WDC’s HGST unit which sold Intel-based SSDs. As WDC has bought SanDisk and has acquired its foundry partnership with and output from Toshiba NAND fabs then it will change the Intel/Micron flash componentry to SanDisk/Toshiba NAND and save itself cost.Chipzilla is converting its Dalian fab in China to build 3D NAND and initial wafer production has started. Rakers writes that “Intel/Micron expects it will have cost effective pricing on 3D-NAND in 2HC2016” but whether this translates into increased non-volatile product revenues for Intel depends upon market dynamics. In general, in the flash product market you have to run to stand still, and Intel has fallen behind – so it has to catch up before it can run ahead of the pack.
