    ^^^ +3 and THANK YOU to CHIEF 🙂 … This is excellent insight for week ahead … WOW – BDI is spiking up big time, as we now in 1400 range & even P/Es are in 20 range – which is higher end of acceptable range – but not too far out there … LET THE GOOD TIMES roll as we recover in months ahead 🙂 🙂


    Good morning, got a bit lost this morning with a few tabs open
    lately I been using Chrome even though everything I have done to set up FireFox with colored tabs, bookmarks (in the thousands) in specific folders and all my hotkeys ….I converted to Chrome for casting….anyways

    I am on this morning, so the majors will be green 😉

    hope everyone is enjoying the bull run


    BDI that one passed me by – wow!

    Looking forward to earning season to heat up – banks warmed us up last week / SLB and GE will tell us a lot about energy. NFLX got outa that toooo early obviously !!! $NFLX great reminder that money never sleeps – great week mods TY


    Oct. Empire State Survey: +6.0 to 30.2 vs. +20.0 expected, 24.4 prior.
    New Orders 18.0 vs. 24.9.
    Shipments 27.5 vs. 16.2
    Number of Employees 15.6 vs. 10.6


    was gonna take a nap but noticed the market coming off the highs


    speaking of being high[hr]

    Miami politician says aliens took her on a spaceship. Now she’s running for Congress.


    CI, blog article suggestion: “Krack” attack

    Apple, Android and Windows software are all susceptible to some version of the vulnerability, which is not fixed by changing Wi-Fi passwords.

    “It seems to affect all Wi-Fi networks, it’s a fundamental flaw in the underlying protocol, even if you’ve done everything right [your security] is broken,” said Alan Woodward of the University of Surrey’s Centre for Cyber Security.[hr]

    Researcher Mathy Vanhoef, from Belgian university KU Leuven, released information on his hack, dubbing it KRACK, for Key Reinstallation Attack. Vanhoef’s description of the bug on his KRACK website is startling: “This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.”


    What s start to the week;
    1. Alien abducted to the congress – not surprised really given our current congress
    2. Krack attack – thanks for sharing – lots of insight on tech just been reading more on Bitcoin and NVidia
    3. Dow near 23,000


    [size=5]^^^^^ +3 and +1s … YES

    Wireless Security – KRACK is new WPA2 attack technique

    Early this morning, the SANS Internet Storm Center and other computer security sites announced proof-of-concept information for a new Wireless Security attack called “KRACK” (Key Reinstallation Attacks). The WPA2 protocol for years had seemed to bulletproof — although anytime you expose computers to a wired or wireless network, any weak security controls become exposed. And even though this new attack is concerning, there are still are a lot of moving pieces for this attack to come together (meaning hacker must be within wireless range with those infamous PRINGLES cans)

    Researchers have disclosed a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol that allows attackers within range of vulnerable device or access point to intercept passwords, e-mails, and other data presumed to be encrypted, and in some cases, to inject ransomware or other malicious content into a website a client is visiting.

    The proof-of-concept exploit is called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The research has been a closely guarded secret for weeks ahead of a coordinated disclosure that was scheduled for 8am Monday, East Coast time. A website disclosing the vulnerability said it affects the core WPA2 protocol itself and is effective against devices running the Android, Linux, macOS, Windows, and OpenBSD operating systems, as well as MediaTek Linksys, and other types of devices. The site warned attackers can exploit it to decrypt a wealth of sensitive data that’s normally encrypted by the nearly ubiquitous Wi-Fi encryption protocol.

    The researcher went on to say that the weakness allows attackers to target both vulnerable access points as well as vulnerable computers, smartphones and other types of clients with differing levels of difficulty. Neither Windows nor iOS aren’t believed to be vulnerable to the most effective attacks. Linux and Android appear to be more susceptible, because attackers can force network decryption on clients in seconds with little effort. Vanhoef said clients can be patched to prevent attacks even when connected to vulnerable access points. Linux patches are available but it’s not immediately clear when they will become available for various distributions and for Android users. Patches are also available for some but not all Wi-Fi access points.[/size]


    Thank you for the in depth report – one think that has always irked me is these virus planters, why?
