Parent gabfest Mumsnet hit by SSL bug: My heart bleeds, grins hacker

Camilla Smythe

No 'Link', per se, given for Reset..

The e-mail I received was...

"Dear Mumsnet user,

Following the recent security breach related to Heartbleed

we have removed the passwords of all users on www.mumsnet.com

To use the site you'll need to reset your password. You'll find

instructions and a link on the login page on how to do this.

Most importantly, if you use the same password on Mumsnet as elsewhere,

we strongly recommend you change your password on the other sites too.

Thanks,

Justine & the MNHQ team"

So the link is on the login page on the website and not in the e-mail. The above link to the homepage was not obfuscated. Less confusing/dodgy. I suppose they could/should have left even that one out or 'broke' it. Given your wife is not a member of Mumsnet it might be worth checking the e-mail again to make sure it really was not a phishing e-mail.

For myself I didn't twig that they had been 'hacked' and just thought they had discovered they were using a vulnerable version of OpenSSL and decided that it would be better to be safe than sorry and scrub everyone's passwords. It might have been better if they gave more details in the e-mail. I had to wait for the story here to discover what had apparently happened.

BTW I joined out of interest and it was a throw away account so I won't bother refreshing it... although it might be interesting to see what sort of method they do have in place. It would also be interesting to see how much has in fact been 'reset'. Would it have been wise to clean out all account details and throw away the e-mail addresses as well?

If anyone was active on the site they would try and log in and be presented with a 'whoopsie page' explaining what had happened and asked to recreate their accounts from scratch. Sure.. sounds like a bit of a pain but.....

Metadata..

"But a Microsoft in partnership with News, providing a nicely-curated content distribution system that lines both companies' pockets, perhaps using metadata about users' online behaviour to target content and advertising, sounds interesting."

Windows XP still has 27 per cent market share on its deathbed

Re: Misplaced Lack of Interest..

It was a serious question.

Obviously it will be my fault but I just scrubbed someone, a home user, off XP and moved them over to Debian.

Bearing in mind I am 'not all that', or anything approaching it..

Re: CANCELED?

When asked to comment about the lack of updates El-Reg blamed someone else whilst suggesting the prominent washing machine was subject to a claim for infringement of a 'swipe to unlock' patent filed by Apple. Apple were not available for comment. The on site resident technicians still have stained underwear and Linus Haines is not very happy about the budget for this exercise being spunked on choccy bars and a bottle of fizzy orange by a bunch of fat blokes standing around scratching their bollocks through their trouser pockets. Tune in next week to discover how to do IT.

AT&T and Netflix get into very public spat over net neutrality

Camilla Smythe

"Marco Civil"

I'll be, or might be, wrong here, Perhaps some Regicide.. I mean RegiReporter can help out, but last time I looked at the 'debate', or lack thereof, it seemed that the ISP's, as middle men, wanted a system in place whereby they would simply be in control of what was delivered to the 'consumer' at 'a cost' for the 'package' to the 'consumer' without any question of the 'provider' on the other side being involved. There's a bit of history I haven't looked at but If I 'have it down' that the ISP's were 'the content providers' and would just love to be in a position to keep others 'off their patch'. Fenced/Ringed gardens etc. Apparently 'Marco Civil' and the concept of 'net neutrality' got repeatedly stuffed up because the ISP's greased up some politicians, go figure. Let me help you here.. 'You, as the peon scum, will like this because it will transfer much more your cash to me and my mates pockets. I mean why should you have to pay more to access Twitter just because some scum is downloading kilowatts of electricity. Let us package it for you. Three tweets a month.

This record-smashing robot solves a Rubik's Cube in 3.253 seconds

Camilla Smythe

One Camera?

If you look at the position of the Phone then in effect it only has sight of one face. Presumably as a result it has to take a few trial spins to locate/relocate and store the position of the separate bricks before it can steam on. In fact you can see it do this. The display begins by showing just the top face and then after a few moves, whole rotations to map the cube, converts to a three-d representation. In fact once it has that data in place it probably isn't looking any more. Is that in the rules and representative of what a human is restricted to? Perhaps academic however the solution would be quicker if.. blah.. blah.. etc.

Hacktivists dish out DNS hijack to PayPal, eBay

Saturday evening...

DNS lookups for ebay.co.uk kept on failing for me. Firefox 'could not find' etc.

ICO to focus only on 'serious, repeat' data-protection offenders

Camilla Smythe

Re: Overwhelmed by complaints

"but surely the solution is to provide the ICO with more resources"..

I have no source but perhaps you can find it....

Representatives of the ICO gave the equivalent of a statement via Parliament that they were underfunded and therefore could not 'do their job' and, in effect, stated that this 'doing their job thing', according to 'The European Bendy Banana Thing', was not going to happen because Parliament was not going to give them the money to do their job, wink wink, so ETC.

Then they *all* exited 'stage left' to work for FaceGoogTwitThirdPartyAffiliates and lived happily ever afterwards.

"I agree that this bears the stench of lobbying."

By the ICO themselves?

Murdoch stands between your kids and filth with BSkyB network-level SHIELD

Camilla Smythe

It is highly likely...

That the kit to do this lives in or about 'the radius' where you log in and are given an IP address. Your log in details will be 'hard coded' to you/your router. If you enable the system all of your traffic will be redirected through the Symantec Kit, probably built by Huawei anyway, and DPI will be performed on all of your communications to pick out requested URLs from the traffic and check them. Of course once in place the equipment may be 'refurbished' at any time in order to 'provision' requested information to GCHQ. Symantec do not need to generate a list from SKY customers in the same way that StalkStalk has from theirs because StalkStalk has already done it using the Huawei-Symantec StalkStalk bot MKI

Of course I could be wrong....

Twitter to let ad pals TRACK COOKIES on micro-blogging site

Camilla Smythe

@DDH A site dedicated to anti-privacy is tracking you? Inconceivable!

"All these social media sites are dedicated to the antithesis of privacy - they exist to allow people to publish any random thing they choose to publish.

[OK Ladz stage one complete. Dirty bomb in broom cupboard HoP]

[Brill FLOTUS Fanny Probe rechargeables replaced with Apple returns]

[Confirm same for Anal Probe CAMER1-E]

[So they will look in the wrong hole. How's D'Day?]

[How's HRAP?]

[She's a bitch]

[No, the 'Big Bird' place]

[I'll boot up the SUV]

And it surprises people that such sites invade your privacy with tracking cookies, and allow others to do the same.

Folks: If you aren't writing a check for a service, you are not the customer, you are the product, and the service makes money selling you to its real customers."

.... Thank you for those words of wisdom. Gosh you know quite a lot about this lark. You must be one of those commentards on El Reg and/or work in the industry. I hear they challenge FaceBook and Twitter in respect of their subscribed user base. Mr Ballmer said so...

Not being 'au fait' I only read about it today when I came across the site whilst doing research on 'Female Tree hugging in private, how to share with more than two Trees'.

I am telling you this I was pretty bloody annoyed to discover Twitter had done this without telling me in the first place. I was forced to do some research elsewhere and it appears that these people regularly change what they said without asking first. Apparently it is rife.. Twitter, FaceBook, Phorm, Politicians GCHQ, NSA, ETC...

One common factor appears to be that they promise something in order to gain a user base and then do something entirely different without mentioning it and then someone else has to find out and tell the rest of us. It even seems some of them are prone to 'throwing their toys out of the pram', or saying 'it improves the browsing experience' when this happens.

Now then as a Big Bottomed Scato SadoDom, Rubber For Extra™, I've got a theory about this. You see.. if I just slapped my wobbling cheeks either side of any and everyone's face and gave them an oral injection of Solyent Brown creaminess they might complain and I could be prosecuted...

I am making a basic assumption that the ICO or the 'cough cough cough', regular clients, are not in charge of the legislation that would be involved in which case I would not . Do not forget I just deliver.

Fortunately I ask first or someone requests my services in advance, 0779xxxxxxxx [Bitch Edit], and in either case there is much one to one discussion involved before we move forward. Having selected your 'safe' word, clients usually settle on Banana, we move forward to, my, Curry & Batemans prior to the Hotel Room....

You might wish to compare and contrast...

Twitter, et al, shits first and gets found out later.

I discuss it with the client first and select the Restaurant and Hotel. The client does not say 'Banana' and does not end up in the next client.

Oh good.. new install of Linux is ready. Click.

"The decision was taken to initiate an endorphin release, and the sound of the impact was successfully accompanied by the sound me me going "ahhhhhhh" in quiet, excretory bliss."

Carefully executed and no back splash then?

Of course the suggestion of an 'endorphin release' might indicate that there was some wide area downward splatter with collaterals being collected by 'the bowl' requiring extension of the manipulator arm equipped with tool 342 of a set of 678.

AKA 'Bog Brush'.

... Or you vacated the scene of the crime with a smug smile and left someone else to 'tidy up' afterwards.

"Fortunately, my conscience is equipped with a chemical inhibition actuation system intended to reduce the chances of me caring about the impending collision."

Uhm... No. Inhibition is not the correct term. Your farts smell real good to you.

Hmm. OS problem?

..as in not Computer, Email Client or ISP problems.

Maybe I should try,

sudo apt-get install commondialog.dll

or somesuch.

Perhaps the Vogons are rubbing their pudgy thumbs across the experience known as TIFKAM 8 or trying to find us using Apple Maps. I'll pretend to put it back in its cardboard box and send it back to the shop ;-)
