Lost+Found logo Too small for news, but too good to lose, Lost+Found is a compilation of the other stories that have been on The H's radar this week. In this edition: Angry Birds where they shouldn't be, the search for a new hashing scheme, atmospheric noise, the ShmooCon live stream, and more jailbreak details.

  • Manipulated cash points can be difficult to detect, but if the machine you're about to get money from invites you to a game of Angry Birds, you should really be suspicious.

  • Even if you're not planning on spending the weekend in the Hyatt Regency Washington, you can still watch the live stream of ShmooCon, the hacker conference taking place there.

  • Entropy is an important – but scarce – resource on computers. Paul Warren uses the driver for software-defined radio based on Realtek RTL2832U in DVB-T dongles (rtl-sdr) to extract real entropy from atmospheric noise (rtl-entropy).
