access to documents by unix/linux credentials only?
I'm sorry, I have to call b*llsh*t on this.
Any database system worth its salt relies on db specific credentials, simply being root (or any user for that matter) should be absolutely insufficient to access anything in a secured database. One would hope that such a place as the three letter agencies would require authentication against the database application before providing anything classified.
I find it beyond belief that such agencies would work in any other way. In which case, Snowdon actually *had* the appropriate levels of access to the data and we're trying to be sold something to cover that up.
NSW Police and Social Media
One thing I note ignored in here is the fact that they have been (successfully) using social media to look for missing persons. I've seen a number in my area where the search has been successful and thanks have been passed to those people who helped pass the word (and any images) by facebook.
too good to be true?
I am wondering how long it took Richard to research this article.
Obviously he spent more time on it than Malcolm.
From Malcolm's perspective the information that he got must have appeared almost too good not not use immediately.
Of course those of us how have been on the net for any amount of time know that if something appears too good to be true, then it probably *is* too good to be true.
