java - show time in format yyyy-mm-ddthh:mm:ss.sss


possible bugthe formatter is using an incorrect identifier for the hours. hh means " hour in am/pm (1-12)", so it works with 12h format and a am/pm marker. since the formatter does not print the am/pm marker, this is most likely a bug as it will not differentiate morning from afternoon, and return the same formatted string for two different dates.you either want to use hh instead, which is "hour in day (0-23)", or print the am/pm marker with a.thread safetyprivate final static dateformat df = new simpledateformat(date_format, locale.english); this is a source of problems, because simpledateformat is not a thread-safe class:it is recommended to create separate format instances for each thread. if multiple threads access a format concurrently, it must be synchronized externally.wi...

youtube's 'vr180' format works on screens and in headsets


at today's vidcon event, youtube ceo susan wojcicki rolled out a new format for videos, called vr180. intended to split the difference between 360/vr formats and standard videos, it lets creators shoot videos that are immersive when viewed in a virtual reality headset, but still have a normal perspective for anyone watching on their 2d computer screen or phone. the daydream team is apparently working with lenovo, lg, and yi technology to build new cameras that will record in the format, which creators will be able to edit using tools like adobe premiere.

presidents cup 2017: schedule, pairings, tee times for friday's matches


the united states is in a familiar position after the opening session of the 2017 presidents cup. the american side jumped on the internationals in thursday's foursomes session, winning 3.5 of a possible 5 points. the 3.5 to 1.5 lead leaves team usa ahead at the end of the 27th straight session in this international team play competition.the foursomes format has been the key to the american dominance, really since 2000. the format has been their trouble spot in the ryder cup against the euros but it's been critical to their success here. with their run in foursomes, it was a no-brainer that american captain steve stricker would make that the first day's format. as the home captain, he had the option of choosing between that and four-ball and went with the one he figured would give his t...

password cracking - how can i prove this site is a huge security weakness?


the password format in the userpassword attribute looks like the standard format used by various unix services, such as the default system password service which stores hashed passwords in /etc/shadow. the format is basically:$ type $ salt $ hash in your example, the type is 1, which designates an md5 hash. there are other well-known types, such as various sizes of the sha-family hash functions.breaking an md5 hash is almost trivial today, even when it's salted, because md5 is so fast. it's not a hash function which is safe to use for hashing passwords; hashcat and other password crackers can literally hash millions or even billions of password candidates per second.so this data store service isn't just horrible because it sends user password hashes back, it's even more horrible bec...

passwords - downloading a file from a server with a secret: in text or binary?


the file format doesn't impact the security of the data transport. you can securely send plain data through an encrypted tls tunnel. without tls, the data can be sniffed either way.beyond that, zipping the data has actually historically been a popular measure to remove a potential web application attack vector. that is, depending on the format of the secret data and the predictability of the download path, you could be making yourself vulnerable to cross-site script inclusion (xssi). here's a possible attack scenario to explain the attack:every authenticated user of your platform can download a user-specific sensitive configuration file for their system at this url:https://magicservice.example/download/myconfig the config file has the following format:user_id = 314159 secret_token ...






mp3 is dead, long live aac


in its place, the director of the fraunhofer institute told npr, the advanced audio coding (aac) format has become the "de facto standard for music download and videos on mobile phones." it's simply more efficient and has greater functionality, as streaming tv and radio broadcasting use the format to deliver higher-quality audio at lower bitrates than mp3.basic research in audio encoding began at the friedrich-alexander university of erlangen-nuremberg in the late 1980s. researchers there and from the fraunhofer institute joined forces, and their result was the humble mp3 standard. the format takes up 10 percent of the storage space of the original file, a monumental reduction at the time. according to stephen witt's book how music got free, corporate sabotage and and other failures al...

test cricket turns 140 years old: who played the first test, where was it played

(source: icc)even with t20 cricket gathering most of the attention in the current scenario due to the quickness of the game, big hitting and euphoria that goes alongside, test cricket, for most romantics, remains the best format of the game. tests bring into question a team’s resilience, patience and consistency over the course of a lengthy period. the format has seen matches played in six days and the current format of five days. there are even discussions of reducing it to four days to continue to appeal to the millennials with wavering attention spans.watch video |kolkata: sourav ganguly & michael clarke react to ”monkeygate controversy”also read | g...






passwords - downloading a file from a server with a secret: in text or binary?


the file format is irrelevant to the security of the data transport. you can send plain text as well as arbitrary binary formats securely through an encrypted tls tunnel. without transport security, the data can be captured either way and would only be protected by encryption in the format itself.with regard to security on the application layer, zipping sensitive data has historically been a popular measure against a class of web application attacks related to content sniffing. e.g., depending on the format of the secret data and the predictability of the download path, you might introduce a cross-site script inclusion (xssi, not xss) vulnerability by offering plain text downloads without appropriate security measures. here's an imaginary scenario to explain the attack:let's assume any a..
