Wanna play 'Doom'? Do I have the John Deere tractor for you!

Folks, we've done it.We've put in the work, and now we're reaping the rewards. Doom can run on anything. First a pregnancy test, and now, even a John Deere tractor. The modification also makes a provocative point about right-to-repair laws, but more importantly: It's Doom. On a tractor. At the Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas Sick Codes, a security researcher worked with Doom modder Skelegant and got the game to run on a John Deere tractor display, according to The Verge. As you can see, it's a modified version of the pioneering first-person shooter (FPS), designed to be more of a first-person harvester (FPH). Tweet may have been deleted (opens in a new tab) Sick Codes shared a video demonstrating how, with physical access to the tractor's circuit board, they hacked into the expensive piece of farm equipment. "I launched the attack and two minutes later a terminal pops up," Sick Codes said, according to Hack Read. "I had root access, which is rare in Deere land." SEE ALSO: 'Sims' players beautifully recreate the quaint town from 'Stardew Valley' It's obviously neat, but it also shows that there might be some holes in cyber security around farm equipment. Kyle Weins, the co-founder and CEO of an online repair community iFixit, tweeted that this hack is "just the beginning.""Turns out our entire food system is built on outdated, unpatched Linux and Windows CE hardware with LTE modems," Weins said.As Weins pointed out, John Deere has told regulators time and time again that farmers shouldn't fix their own equipment or access data because, the company says, it violates a two decades-old copyright law. This has fueled the "right to repair" movement, leading the White House to issue an executive order limiting John Deere's ability to restrict independent repairs. According to a report from Wired Sick Codes' hacking could lead to even more changes in the right to repair movement by showing that John Deere has maintained its overprotective and litigious stance on software that has some pretty weak security."We want farmers to be able to repair their stuff for when things go wrong, and now that means being able to repair or make decisions about the software in their tractors," Sick Codes told Wired.

Georgia’s big Trump election investigation, explained

A grand jury investigation in Georgia intensified this summer, and could be a greater legal threat to Trump than the Justice Department. While the congressional committee investigating January 6 has been holding public hearings and the Justice Department has been steadily securing convictions of hundreds of those who breached the Capitol, a grand jury in Atlanta has been meeting behind closed doors to focus on efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to reverse Joe Biden?s election win in Georgia. That Georgia investigation intensified this summer, drawing closer to Trump?s inner circle and potentially posing a clearer legal threat to Trump than the other probes into his campaign to overturn the 2020 presidential election that culminated in the January 6 attack on the Capitol.Here?s what you need to know about it.How did this investigation get started, and who is running it? The special grand jury was convened in May at the request of Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, which includes Atlanta, and she?s leading it. It will aid the ongoing investigation launched by Willis in February 2021 into the conduct of Trump and his allies in the aftermath of the 2020 election.?This is an investigative grand jury, which is slightly different from a regular grand jury that would hear every felony under the sun,? Tamar Hallerman, a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution who has been focused on the investigation, told Vox in July. ?It is focused on this one exclusive case. The whole idea is that they really can become experts and do a deep dive on everything to overturn Georgia?s election results.? Special grand juries are relatively rare in Georgia and often used in intensive, long-lasting investigations such as this one into the effort to overturn the presidential election in Georgia.Willis is a first-term district attorney who was elected in Georgia?s largest jurisdiction as a Democrat in 2020. She is a career prosecutor who was previously best known for prosecuting educators in Atlanta Public Schools for their role in a scheme to cheat on standardized tests. Willis has also recently received national attention for indicting the rapper Young Thug on an array of gang-related charges.What is the Georgia grand jury investigating?The grand jury is exploring whether Donald Trump and his allies violated Georgia state law in their efforts to reverse the former president?s 2020 loss in the state. Those efforts included his notorious phone call on January 2, 2021, with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which Trump said he wanted ?to find 11,780 votes.?It also encompasses efforts by the Trump campaign to create a slate of fake electors in Georgia to transmit fraudulent electoral votes to Congress for certification. Last week, Willis sent a letter to all 16 fake electors in the state to inform them they were considered ?targets? of the investigation, which means they are being viewed as potential subjects of indictment and not just witnesses. She had previously subpoenaed them in June.Who has the grand jury heard from so far?In addition to subpoenaing the fake electors, the grand jury has sought testimony from a wide array of figures ranging from a former publicist for Kanye West, who allegedly tried to pressure an election worker into making untrue claims about voter fraud, to Brian Kemp, the state?s Republican governor, who was the subject of an unrelenting pressure campaign by Trump to take action on his behalf.Recently, it sought testimony from a variety of figures in Trump?s inner circle, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. ?This is major,? Hallerman said at the time. ?This represents the first time that the DA is piercing the inner orbit of Donald Trump. Previously, she stayed at the state and local level and kept it very Georgia-focused.? Ben Gray/AP
