A reward of $250,000 has been offered by Microsoft to find who is behind the Downadup/Conficker virus. Since it started circulating in October 2008 the Conficker worm has managed to infect millions of computers worldwide. The software giant is offering the cash reward because it views the Conficker worm as a criminal attack. ... Although Downadup is widespread its creators have yet to activate its payload to steal data or launch other...

People working with computers often sloppily talk about their system's “random number generator” and the “random numbers” it produces. But numbers calculated by a computer through a deterministic process, cannot, by definition, be random. Given knowledge of the algorithm used to create the numbers and its internal state, you can predict all the numbers returned by subsequent calls to the algorithm, whereas with genuinely random...
