Re: everything we own that's more complicated than a can opener
Don't worry, the IOT will mean your can opener needs patching too!

When I switch my phone off, I want it to turn off. Sounds like you want an alarm clock.
Windows phone + browser = best of both worlds!!!
Presumably with a corresponding boost in uploading your personal info to MS.
That is exactly what I believe!! Are you psychic?
That is why they were looking at advertising, yes. How much do you think Mozilla makes giving away it's browser?
An end user needs a single bundle. You don't buy a car, then go and get an engine, some suspension, some wheels, brakes, an exhaust etc.... End users want a working thing, they don't care that it's made of lots of sub-things.
"Microsoft uses run rate figures for its cloud business, as do rivals in that market, such as IBM."
Did you read the article? Even the bit about the experiment they did? Do you understand what a circular argument is? Are you just being deliberately obtuse or is thinking too hard?
Music? I thought you were talking about jazz.....
You don't seem to understand what the word means. Spying is secretly watching, it doesn't matter where the person you're watching is. So unless they joined in on social media and made it clear they were listening it's not unreasonable to call it spying.
But they make so much money in management they'd be stupid to change before they've totally run the company into the ground....
Yeah, they always work well and never require the supervisor to come over and sort things out.
but not to pay the people who actually run the business? Is your business model flawed or is your management just crap?
There's a "send corrections" link at the top of the comments.
It has a browser. They meant Google.
If it's not permanent then it's not bricked. Bricked means permanently broken.
Now I'm going to have to learn to love editing config files and piping things to grep.
Thanks a fucking bunch MS!!!
A bit of an arrogant prick, eh? I've tried linux's before, they've never worked well enough for me to want them driving my home pc. It's my choice.
Now MS have started to go all Google I may be tempted to move, but the linux users on here regularly put me off with their in-fighting and pomposity.
So just like the id that gets passed to Google Analytics by pretty much every website you go to then.
...tbh the fact they've come clean about this has left the sneering commentards looking a bit flat. If only you'd found out about this before they admitted what they'd done then maybe your paranoia would look a bit less mental.
Don't get me wrong, Windows 10 is making me seriously consider getting a linux for the home pc, but this story is not the place to rant about MS being total bastards because it just shows them as incompetent.
Yeah, because I regularly come on here to post info about local crims who will then want to knee cap me.
I see no difference between a news site that doesn't secure itself and an anonymous crime reporting site that doesn't secure itself. They're both web sites after all. How different could they be?
Woman has breasts. Definitely worth a comment.
Oh, what's that? You think they're nice? Well this could run and run then.....
It's for kids!!! Grow up!!!!!!!
Until he works our a way to save her, obv.
Not when you ask for them. We're nothing if not contrary!!
Moaning about downvotes, that's the way to get loads! Or mentioning God.....
The article is pretty vague and the video isn't much help either. It seems like first a user installs the app, then it says it wants you to enable the accessibility features. If you do it starts to install adware and other crap without your permission. So the user has to install the app and give it permission, then it starts installing stuff on it's own.
It's not a virus.
If you block ads by blocking the ad content network by ip then they'll be blocked in app. No ad provider is stupid enough to trust a third party to deliver their content and tell them how many ads were served or clicked on.
Well I hope you've got Google Analytics blocked or you're giving them a load of browsing data whether you use their services or not.
I don't agree. People create apps because they can monetise more effectively and because it's trendy. The majority of apps don't do anything that a good html5 site couldn't.
Also, this allows the user to "stream" the app without installing it, proving that you don't need an installed app to access the information.
cue "That's not what we made this thing for!!!"
... might be hiding behind ClloudFlare services.
We estimate that up to 100% of your post might be bollocks.
Where have you been? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/06/blackberry_priv_review/
This has little to do with malware development, it's about getting a product out to non-technical users and making it attractive to them. People will give things that look nice a chance but give up on things that look ugly. This malware will get more use because more people will stick with it because of it's attractive gui.
One smartarse isn't a forum full. Compare and contrast, both articles are 2 days old:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/11/patch_tuesday_downloads_buggy_ms_patch/ Currently 108 comments
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/12/mobile_pwn2own/ currently 20 comments including this.
If it was on Windows Phone this place would be full of smartarses mouthing off about how shit MS are. You know, how hacking a browser should never compromise core system components, how MS don't sandbox things properly and their security implementation is flawed.
You never see that kind of helpful wisdom sharing on articles about Google vulnerabilities.
You were being asked what browser you use to avoid this chrome vulnerability as Cyanogen isn't a browser, dolphin being the old android default browser.
But thanks for the marketing message. Any downvotes will doubtless be someone with lower brain functions.
Just as soon as everyone becomes capable of writing all the apps they need themselves?
I'm not being racist but....
Yeah, it said that shit ransomware was shit so it's easy to decrypt. Shit ransomware on Windows is equally shit.
Yeah, why moan at the government when you can take a pointless swipe at the opposition? I notice no smartarse comments about pig fucker Dave.
I still hate!!!
Nevertheless, he wants to stay on the westminster gravy train, and voters are what keeps him there. So worth letting him know you voted for him before (!) and won't again if he supports the snooper's charter...
No, the problem is being kept waiting for 10 minutes or more at the end of every shift unpaid.
The simple answer is to put the clocking out machine after the search. I bet Apple could get the security staff to pull their fingers out if it was costing them a little money....
That says neither give the proper feedback. Should be "doesn't give the feedback that a proper keyboard does" or "doesn't give the feedback of a proper keyboard".
Sorry, i'm on my phone so no grammar nazi icon!
BACK OFF BRUSSELS!!!!
The apps discussed aren't necessarily accessing data without the users consent, it's the way they're sharing that data with third parties that's the issue. Nevertheless, you are correct in saying that it's easier to investigate what a web site is doing from the client. That doesn't let you see what they do with your data server side though.
Open source bullshit is far superior!
