    How about the idiots lining the street just waiting to get their ass run over by one of the cars. Just takes one little wiggle and over correction.

    I'm not sure what to tell you as you can go ahead and view a multitude of articles that cite sources when it is necessary to do so. I have a history of proper citation but I also have a history of not treating my readers like toddlers. It's not necessary as I didn't borrow 'pictures' but a singular picture which can be replaced by anything or embedded as already stated and I don't insult the intelligence of my readers with redundancy. MotorTrend is clearly stated in the article so you acting like I'm trying to hide the source is quite simply idiotic. I find your baseless nitpicking immature and I told you if you wanted to continue this topic to not do it in this thread. Since you did not seem to pay attention to my instructions I'll be more clear right now. Removed from the thread.

    The grandson of Ferdinand Porsche who was a party to the VW/Porsche power struggle is out of the Volkswagen Auto Group or at least in a direct role. 78 year old Ferdinand Piech, a goliath in the German automotive world, is officially out at Volkswagen. What in the world happened behind the scenes to force this move? Keep in mind his wife who also sat on the board is gone as well so something big went down. Piech and his wife would not just give up their seats. Piech has been involved with Porsche and Volkswagen essentially since his conception. He pushed for the Lamborghini acquisition. He pushed Audi to go upmarket. He was chairman of the board at Volkswagen way back in 1993 and in 2011 won the Automobile Magazine Man of the Year award. He was the man for a very long time. Piech has a reputation for being aggressive and power hungry. He is known for firing people who disagree with him or 'make the same mistake twice' as he has been known to say. How very German of him. What apparently took place is that Piech got into it with Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn who was Piech's own handpicked understudy at one point. Did the student supercede the master? Piech was quoted by German news source Der Spiegal as stating, 'I am at a distance to Winterkorn.' Piech's seat as chairman of the Volkswagen supervisory board was set until 2017 at which point Winterkorn was expected to take over. Winterkorn's own CEO contract is good until 2016 so trying to force him out right now when VW is poised to take over as the world's largest automaker seems foolish. Piech decided to give up his seat before Winterkorn's contract is up or his own seat time is up and we do not know the exact reasons why but it obviously involves Winterkorn. Piech remains a large shareholder with 10% in Porsche alone but a new chairman will be elected at some point in the future. It seems the Volkswagen group is throwing itself behind Winterkorn and we would guess Piech felt this was a betrayal. Perhaps Piech simply grew old and the company passed him by. Either way, this is a major behind the scenes move as Ferdinand Piech was one of the most powerful men in the group and Volkswagen clearly has its own complicated internal politics. Winterkorn emerges unscathed and more powerful than ever before. Source

    If you want your forum to be viewed as more than just what it seems like right now, perhaps it is the time that you should follow some proper citing and referencing like most other forums (there is a reason why most places include water marks on their published photos)... Hell, at least link the original article on Motor Trend that you "borrowed" all the pictures and charts from. Perhaps it is just an honest mistake with this post. But I just don't see the validity behind your reasons of not properly listing your source materials and all the immature down voting of my posts...

    Well he's right, 1024 would take a looooong time. I was pretty much talking out my @$$. Apparently 768 has been brute forced, but that's far off from 1024. So we may be at step -20. Who just wants to cut up our tunnels and move some crap out of the way, in order to fit a 4l60? Kidding. Anyone else know some CS majors? I texted my friends, I was talking about, I'll let you guys know what they say.

    This took place in Cali I'm guessing somewhere around Oakland. Hilarious to watch the guy flip out over $500. What a joke:

    Seriously, we don't even know the encryption and we do not even have a TCU removed to bench flash? We're at step negative 1 right now.

    We didn't brute force anything we got the keys. If we didn't get serious/professional help we'd still be talking.

    Nothing important. Oh no they do. They get to test all kinds of cool stuff. They can say they are going to Switzerland for Winter testing and do some skiing. Plus if they are the head dude they basically get to call all the shots and play with all the cool toys. It's more than just money. You essentially get cars for free too. We're not going to be able to buy a BMW engineer who will reverse engineer something for us for a few grand. It's wishful thinking and it's simply not realistic.

    Time to hack my old Xbox lol I know a few guys in CS at school who are really talented, and love to do this kind of stuff, I might try reaching out to them. This is very demoralizing though, that in all likelihood, our best bet is a leak. Saw somebody mentioned bench flashing earlier. Maybe that could work?

    I visit Engadget daily and actually read that post years ago. Good post. If you want an interesting hack that is(was since nobody has that firmward anymore) designed to be repeatable by others who desired to do so(And it was) then read this: http://beta.ivc.no/wiki/index.php/Xbox_360_Timing_Attack

    Looked around and saw that Google now uses 2048 bit RSA because the NSA can crack 1024. Other than that it does look like 1024 bit RSA is pretty much impervious to brute force. Here's another interesting article I found though: http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/09/1024-bit-rsa-encryption-cracked-by-carefully-starving-cpu-of-ele/ If only we could do something like that lol

    I've spent zero time in finding cryptogrpahic vulnerabilities. I've just dealt with cryptography through creating private servers for games and having owned a cryptocurrency exchange. Which I'm selling if anyone cares.

    If this method is true, then I'd be more interested in seeing the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U hacked. Piracy FTW.

    No worries man, I've done the same. I just recently got interested in security, and since it's such a huge market, I figured I'd start to look into it as a career. Haven't had the chance to learn much, so I realize I'm probably throwing pure ignorance out there. Still, I'd thought that they would use symmetric encryption, since they wouldn't really be transmitting over a network, so no worry of somebody intercepting the key? Oh yeah, I know they have virtually nothing in common. Are there methods out there that have been created for cracking RSA?
