Hasn't kernal.org been hacked and rooted as well? Still the repositories, were secured using sha-1, which as we know is rock solid.

Re: Oh yawn, here we go again.

Puhlease. Are you saying that the humans cannot memorize passwords?

Not when one wants 10 alphanumeric, excluding special characters

The other want between 6 and 15 and include special characters

Another wants more than 10 including special character, except for spaces, comma's, full stops

Another wants less than 8 but must contain at least 1 uppercase, 1 number, 1 special character

Another wants more than 15

Another want 10 but must contain at least 2 numbers and 2 uppercase

And so on and so on.

Re: For everyone wearing tin hats

Isn't your "argument" for it, pretty much the argument against it?

"how many of you have reviewed the hardware and software of your existing dumb modem/router"

Exactly.

So a router that could do "little" more than allow direct access to your network or compromise your DNS, now allows far, far more attack vectors.

And more unpatched attack vectors (less face it we can't rely on the vendors or ISP's to do it) is bad news.

I'm guessing as the Reg staff are based in London, it would hardly be worth their while paying a few hundred quid to travel up North to see potentially a crap show.

It's a tech journal after all.

I live nr Brum and if I want to find out about shows I simply subscribe to the local theaters. One plus side, is a smaller theaters around here often get some of the big comedy acts before they hit the main theaters and tickets cost about a tenner.
