Good thing none of my computers are on the internet anymore.

Really; when I do manage to get online these days, all I hear about takes another week of being online to understand, untill I realise that it refers to things that only have any meaning on the internet.

"AMIRITE?"

And yes, I am aware of the nature of the site to which I am posting.

But still.

Get out while you can. Any industry that can make you suddenly twitch at the womb while you reassess . . .

forgot what i was saying while i went to check the spelling of assess.

doesn't matter.

10,000 Hotmail passwords mysteriously leaked to web

Paris Hilton

saw a similar thing a few weeks ago

my sister decided to google for her hotmail username (a family nickname, fairly unique) out of interest, and found her user:pass on a list of over 1000 (non alphabetical) accounts on pastebin.ca

these were passwords from various uk-based isps and hotmail, etc. a common feature was that most of them were women, and a significant portion of the usernames and/or passwords had reference to things like tarot, astrology, feng shui, etc . . .

my sister frequents (or used to) a few sites doing tarot readings and things like that, so i'm assuming one or more of them was/is responsible/compromised.

about 60% of the 30 or so i tried allowed access to paypal.

scary stuff!

Uh . . .

surely the most striking thing about this is the hilariously low ransom, that they then lowered?

maybe they wanted to get a wii or something, and some pokemon.

I wonder ...

... if this has anything to do with the abundance of psilocybe semilanceata toadstools in that locality at this time of year.
