And what lesson was that ? not to be an arse ?
Tbh if she was fired for being shit at her job then she should have accepted that and walked away , if however, she thought she was good at her job then go for unfair dismissal ... 9 times out of 10 disgruntled IT people who are fired and try to hack the system and break stuff fail because of the reason they were fired ... They fail at IT!
What a stupid cow!
Some of us have to support Symantec Products for 1000's of users because management can't see how shoddy their software is due to the cheapness of the licensing renewals .....
Paris: Because I like to think that she's free of bugs ;)
Could it be that the purpose of Conficker/W32.Downadup was for this kind of thing ... panic people into searching for removal tools , info , etc and infect their machine with other malicious software when they click on their links ?
or maybe ... a big April Fools from some spotty russian kid swigging vodka in his mums/KGB overlords basement
"We were just seeing how easy it is to do" ...
similar to that McKinnon blokes defence imo , he was just looking ......
Dodgy corporation thinking that the laws don't apply to them as per usual even though they actually helped the infected users by advising them how easy they were to infect .... the fact remains that they illegally took control of those machines .... and if the owners of said machines have unpatched/protected machines in the first place the chances are that they won't know/care about patching them now...
The only way to prevent machines being incorporated into botnets would be for a law to be passed where ISP detect if machines are fit to be used on the Internet , patched , secure etc .and block them if they aren't .... similar to an M.O.T that automobiles have to pass.
Paris 'cos she loves to be serviced !
Why don't they go after youtube ? You can download music video's in flv format and then convert to mp3 ....
Wonder if Arnie will be making films again =P
