Kaspersky, McAfee, and AVG all vulnerable to major flaw

ardubbleyu

Don't think Intel owns Kaspersky - in any case KIS 2016 is now widely available and not vulnerable to this AFAIK.

If it still works six months from now, count yourself lucky

I am currently still using a PC that I bought in 2006. The PSU and motherboard (ASUS P5NSLI) are original, as is the HDD (a Seagate I think)

I've upgraded the BIOS, processor and memory, together with the graphics card, and Win 7 replaced XP when it came out way back when...

The machine still shows a decent turn of speed, the limitation being the 5400rpm HDD, and Windows 10 reckons it is compatible, although I've not been brave enough to try it!

Cuffed Texan woman holsters loaded gun IN VAGINA

Why is it that Lester always gets to report on this kind of thing? Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just seems that other Reg hacks are missing out on the really important stuff...

EE BrightBox routers can be hacked 'by simple copy/paste operation'

ardubbleyu

Sigh...

I have one of these. So not only is it a cr@p router, but it's also insecure. Time to move on, methinks... in the mean time, it only gets turned on when in use. Fortunately I am a light user on the domestic front.

This is not actually a 'surviving' police box, it's a modern repro, built in partnership between the local authority and the Met Police. It did used to have a working phone in it - not sure if it still works...

MPs bash broadband tax

ardubbleyu
WTF?

Yeah, but...

What's to say that the money will even be used by the Government to implement broadband in the manner they describe? Look at the Road Fund License - created to pay for road building and repairs, but in reality just goes in to the treasuries coffers. Evidence? The state of our roads that more resemble the surface of the moon...
