KSI: 2020

Year in Review It's almost time to bid adieu to 2020, but before we do, let's take a look at what this crazy year was like for KSI.  The Department of Member Services was created to house the KSI court system and a new team called peer support. The courts moved away from the forums, which led to the organization of the forums as an Archive for KSI's history. The Wiki project relaunched to preserve and present that history. In a joint effort between Ancient Republic and Fallen Angels, the new division Skynet was born to bring PC presence back…

Ransomware On the Rise & into Your Pockets

The first rule of a ransomware infection is “don’t pay that ransom!”. Just recently, well-known companies like Garmin, Blackbaud, US Travel Agency CWT as well as the Texas School District have paid a ransom in order to gain back access to their data. As recently as August 22nd, Canpar Express has also reportedly been hit by ransomware as confirmed by the SANS Institute. So what is ransomware? Imagine someone gained access to your computer and kidnapped all your precious files and demanded a ransom before returning your files. Except the files are still on your hard drive, they are just…

#ACSisterhood: Out of the Shadows

“This is a tighter squeeze than the caves west of Siwa,” Bayek says as he squeezes through the hole in the wall.  A hand reaches out, takes hold of his, and helps him through, and Bayek comes face to face with Aya. “We were smaller in those days,” she teases with a chuckle and pats her hand against Bayek’s chest.  Aya follows her husband down the path, torch in hand, until she reaches an underwater passage. Diving down, she finds sunken chambers and passages until finally reaching the surface again. She withdraws a torch and dashes down a passageway to…

HALO INFINITE: Eight Minutes TO True Form

Master Chief is back and ready to take on the Banished within an enormous Halo ring and an expanded offensive as well as defensive arsenal in what 343 Industries is referring to as a "Spiritual Reboot" that will "also feel fresh, full of potential, and (feel like a) new adventure." The intention here is to allow Halo veterans to experience the same depth of gameplay that surrounded the original Halo and brought it the legendary prestige back in 2001, while also inviting new players into the Halo universe. Within the eight-minute gameplay that Microsoft finally delivered upon, we see Master…

Breaking Barriers: A NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

It is my sincere pleasure to announce that KSI Airy 7, current Operations Director of KSI, has been unanimously voted by the Board of Operations to become the next Executive Director of the community. Doing a simple announcement piece seemed disingenuous to me when I considered the scope of just how huge this moment is for KSI and it’s future. This is also a momentous occasion for another reason. With her appointment being confirmed, Airy will now be the first female in our history to be running the community in its entirety. Airy aka Satana aka Eve aka Miss Lolo…

Rise of DDoS & Bounties

One of the byproducts of our current pandemic is an increase in DDoS attacks focused on companies and internet communities. Distributed denial-of-service is a malicious attack on publicly accessible servers, services, and network infrastructure. An attacker will flood these devices or services with an immense amount of internet traffic often consisting of packets over UDP and at times utilizing multiple zombie PCs that are part of a BOTnet. According to security vendor Neustar, it has observed a “dramatic rise” in DDoS attacks during a lockdown  and “In the first quarter of 2020, Neustar mitigated more than twice the number of…

KSI addressing prejudice

KSI has seen quite a bit of change in the past few weeks, leading to a new Executive Director, Operations Director, a new squad, DNHs, and, in some viewpoints, an identity crisis. At the moment, members are demanding executive leadership to define and combat racism, hate-speech, harassment, and identify issues within the Code of Conduct. The biggest issue seems that KSI as a whole really doesn’t know where it stands on the situations, both personally and in large as a community. KSI Kered 7 has taken on the role of Interim Executive Director to replace KSI Viktory 7 who both…
