The NHS Supplier Information Database portal here doesn't work with non-MS browsers either. NHS spending money on rubbish IT projects? Never....!
Seems to require a trojan on the suspect's PC
If you take a look at the English translation at
"The concept of DigiTask intends to install a so called Skype-Capture-Unit on the PC of the surveilled person."
so it's a trojan to intercept at the client side, rather than anything scary?
L Von Hubbard predicted BT/Phorm?
There are allegedly chapters in the particular document called 'Handling BTs Messed Up', 'BTs With Misunderstood Words' and 'Repairing And Blowing BTs And Clusters'
Does this mean that:
a) Da L Ron Ron Ron predicted the whole BT/Phorm thang
b) There is an even more tenuous IT angle (Clusters...)
* Paris 'cos am sure she's blown clusters before.
Have just got off the line to KFC Technical Support
As a very un-tech-savvy relative of mine uses KC's dialup service for the interweb, I've just phoned KC to find out if this atrocious hijacking can be opted out of for dialup services. The technical support bod hadn't even heard of the service - I had to give him the URL of the 'opt out' page. I was then passed back to Customer Services who said 'change the DNS servers on the dial-up connection', but didn't think it was wrong to increase people's dial-up phone bills by sending unwanted Ask.com webpage content down the line to them...."It won't take up more time - it'll save time!" was the comment.
