Burner?

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swedish man who was arrested after trying to split atoms in his kitchen said Wednesday he was only doing it as a hobby.

Richard Handl told The Associated Press that he had the radioactive elements radium, americium and uranium in his apartment in southern Sweden when police showed up and arrested him on charges of unauthorized possession of nuclear material.

The 31-year-old Handl said he had tried for months to set up a nuclear reactor at home and kept a blog about his experiments, describing how he created a small meltdown on his stove.

Only later did he realize it might not be legal and sent a question to Sweden's Radiation Authority, which answered by sending the police.

"I have always been interested in physics and chemistry," Handl said, adding he just wanted to "see if it's possible to split atoms at home."

The police raid took place in late July, but police have refused to comment. If convicted, Handl could face fines or up to two years in prison.

Although he says police didn't detect dangerous levels of radiation in his apartment, he now acknowledges the project wasn't such a good idea.

"From now on, I will stick to the theory," he said.

The diy home nuclear program made the bbc today.

His blog appears totally gone from the web now though.

Some of my searches must light up entire panels somewhere.

Ready for the punchline?

He got the materials on ebay.

The lighting system is composed of 149 searchlights and a 70-kilowatt beam that radiates outward for nearly 71km (44 miles).

When illuminated, the lights project a gigantic cross in the sky that can be seen as far away as Puerto Rico.

Turns out it was an overlay of Tomlin's voice on a Riley meltdown.

A follow up ...
A new page.

As one of the UK's intelligence and security agencies, GCHQ works to protect national security interests. Our experts use their skills and ingenuity to combat cyber crime and terrorism, while helping to reduce harm to the UK from attacks in cyberspace. As threats to information and computer technology continue to evolve, we're recruiting more people who can think both like a hacker and a defender to help us stay ahead of our adversaries.

We designed this challenge to reach people who might not have seen our traditional recruitment campaigns and spread the word initially via blogs, tweets and other anonymous messages. Participants were presented with a single image - the code to crack. Successfully solving the challenge took people to a page revealing both the source of the code and the career opportunities we have in cyber security.

Thanks to everyone who attempted the challenge. It is now closed but if you found it interesting, even if you did not complete it, please register your interest in our future cyber security roles. You can also view the challenge and find an explanation of the stages under 'The Code: Explained'.

Authorities say two teenagers have been charged with aggravated assault after allegedly shooting at an off-duty officer's car with a paintball gun.

The off-duty cop, Daren Currie, was in his vehicle stopped at a stop sign at Farm Road and Mullins when he heard something hit his Ford F150, he told police.

When he realized 19-year-old Michael Wallace of Memphis and 18-year-old Daniel Williams of Germantown were shooting at him from their vehicle, he notified his dispatch that he was in a shots fired situation.

It wasn’t until later that he realized his truck had been shot with a paintball gun.

The Code Explained

Postby gyre » Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:32 pm

The Code Explained

The three stages within the challenge are designed so that participants can demonstrate the basics of analysing shellcode and obfuscation mechanisms, reverse engineering of malicious binary code and vulnerability analysis.
These techniques are fundamental skills for a cyber security specialist at GCHQ.

Stage 1
This starts with the main image on the canyoucrackit.co.uk site.
To solve this stage it is necessary to identify that this is code that can be run by an Intel x86 compatible processor.
After analysis, it is clear that this machine code implements the RC4 decryption algorithm, and is able to decrypt a block of data that is hidden inside the PNG file, in a comment tag.
Once decrypted, this data reveals the location of stage 2 of the challenge.

Stage 2
This is a JavaScript programming challenge, with a cyber security angle.
To solve this stage an implementation of a simple virtual processor is required.
Some notes on the architecture are provided along with a block of data that can be analysed.
Solving this stage will reveal the final stage of the challenge.

Stage 3
The final stage is a reverse engineering challenge.
An executable file can be downloaded from the location revealed in stage 2.
This executable parses a licence file - if it gets given a correct input, the challenge is revealed to be over, and a link to the 'success' page is provided to the participant.

We included a number of ways that this stage could be solved, as we are interested to see how people would attack the problem - coming up with innovative solutions to seemingly impossible problems is the day job at GCHQ.
For example, there has been some comment by security experts on the fscanf buffer overflow that we included in this executable - one option to solving the problem would be to use this overflow to skip over certain checks in the executable.
Other alternatives for this stage involved breaking the weak crypt, patching the executable directly to bypass the check, or analysing the assembly instructions and realising that this was all a complete diversion.

The three stages of this challenge highlighted a number of different machine code analysis techniques -
why does GCHQ care about these techniques (and indeed other types of machine code analysis)?

GCHQ cyber security specialists spend time analysing executable code from many sources.
Sometimes it can be from malware that has been discovered, to work out what it does, and where it comes from.
On other occasions it can be to assist in the assessment of a security product, to ensure that what the developer has intended to do is actually what they've achieved in practice.

Obviously, searching online for a solution - or even the completion page - is the simplest way to solve each of the stages of the challenge (various hints, links and partial solutions have been placed online since the challenge began), but we are really pleased to see how many people have independently tackled this challenge and shown the depth and breadth of skills which exist in this community.

This recruitment challenge was devised by our technical staff to exercise the critical skills which are needed to help defend UK networks from cyber attack: "Designing this challenge took us away from our day jobs for a very small amount of time and yet gave us the opportunity to engineer something that was both fun and technically intricate.
Whilst being very similar to the work we do on a daily basis, it was incredibly rewarding to follow the external attention and analysis that the challenge generated."

The campaign is now closed.
However, if you enjoy applying these skills, and want to help safeguard national security, register your interest in our cyber roles.
