As this has bug been in the wild for over six months I can see Apple has been true to form in ignoring it.
This is nothing more than a public relations flag waving exercise for the USA and nothing more. We Don't need to do it.
It would be cheaper to walk around planet earth picking the stuff up off the floor? We have already identified the bigger impact points and the answers would be the same.
If the Tor network is banned I will flood the P2P websites with a copy of the browser. While I breathe there will always be at least one point of access to download it. No law will stop me.
Freedom to be a nobody is a right that everyone has.
So he is going to appeal to the guy who ordered the rigged trial......
.............somehow I think I might know the rigged answer
Why produce an add-on to a browser so that it can bypass state lockouts of websites when the browser can do it without the add-on anyway?
Once Apon a Time........
This would make one hell of a movie.
Firstly he gets a job that supplies him with information of crimes against humanity, and he releases the evidence to the public. His bosses slap him into a marine stockade and then subject him to psychological torture by removing his spectacles, making him blind as a bat and causing him headaches. They continue by taking away all his clothes and humiliated him by making him stand every two hours in front of another man. That introduced sleep depravation which continued for months. Then when the media got hold of it his bosses had to put him on suicide watch to cover their backs. His bosses were then forced to transfer him out of a prison run by themselves to a civilian prison. The boss of the civilian prison decided the suicide tag was completely untrue by giving him back his clothes and spectacles, and stopping the sleep depravation and suicide watch.
Once out of his bosses hands his bosses decided to supply the judge, jury, defence lawyer court room, and rules they had to play by. His bosses even paid their wages. If his bosses hadn't stacked the cards enough they then held secret meetings with judges to cement the result.
His bosses then promptly banned the torture from being used as evidence of torture.
...........and all but one lived happily ever after.
To find Manning guilty of a capital offence and execute him would have made the guy a folk hero, letting him rot in a prison would not. It was the only verdict that they could come up with.
The torture in the marine prison, the private meetings between judge and prosecution in which the defence was barred sings out rigged. It was rigged and only an idiot would think otherwise.
The times I have visited websites that have porn advertisements running down the sides have increased beyond a joke. I have no problem with porn provided it's in the right place, hell I have downloaded the odd movie myself. Most of those that run porn websites though have taken it beyond what most consider acceptable. The times I have Googled my way to a website only to find it full of flash advertisements with someone shoving his fishing tackle into someone's face or whatever is getting to be a problem. there was talk of creating a top flight domain just for porn, like XXX or something along those lines. I like porn but only when I decide to visit it. If I want porn then I go look for it, I draw the line though when porn comes looking for me. Anything that has even the remotest chance of taking it out of mainstream internet is fine by me. Put it in a box in the corner where I can find it.
As for the Anonymous comedy act, they are beginning to piss me off. What does crashing up local government email servers suppose to serve? Yet again the average guy on the street will get the fallout.
The US are becoming more like the Kray twins every day...........
The last time people did that was from XP to Windows 7 and that vindictive lot at Microsoft insisted a full wipe of the hard drive was needed.
Upgrading from XP to Vista and then on to Windows 7 didn't involve a full wipe of the hard drive
Microsoft should release this as an optional update and not as a new item you pay for.
Every time I have anything to do with those guys I end up getting screwed somewhere along the line.
Good luck private Manning, Good luck Assange. All my fingers are crossed for you.
I consider this article to be the second most important article since humanity became a species. every word of it I hold close to my heart with unequalled passion.
True to form
Microsoft being true to form have come out with a product that very few customers want. Windows 7 was excellent and Microsoft should have evolved that further. This is a prime example of them telling everyone to shove it
Microsoft have a strong history of producing a product that falls outside customer demand, Windows 8 is a prime example. If they would only listen.
We need something with teeth to tackle the massive abuses of the press and Leveson came up with some excellent ideas. The press were out of control and innocent men women and children were getting hurt. In my 57 years I have seen thousands of lives ruined, even those of kids. John Leslie the TV presenter publicly accused of rape. Christopher Jefferies, an innocent landlord publicly held up as murdering one of his tenants. These were not isolated incidents, these were the normal every day antics of the media. The press council was an awesome joke. Every national hauled up in front of them for infringing their own rules walked away with the ruling going against them, only to do it again, and again, and again afterwards. You cannot have the media police the media when the media have the morals of a dung heap. Leveson was one hundred percent right.
With the judge discussing trial matters with the prosecution in secret, a discussion in which the defence is barred, I have a sneaky idea I know what the verdict is going to be.............
Now this IS a bug u turn for them. It's like a caveman stepping onto the starship Enterprise. Excuse me while i pass out.
With the global nature of cybercrime this is more than welcome. Most scams involve criminals from one country stitching up a victim from another. Most criminals get away with it because of those borders. With the aussies onboard there is now 39 less borders to hide behind. Singing from the same hymn sheet is the only way to tackling this long standing problem.
Hang in there littly buddy...................
I do hope they sort the glitch out. It's been a marvel of human guile and ingenuity getting it there. Now that I find that it's got less computational power than my clock radio I’m more than a little impressed, especially considering the outstanding results it has sent back so far.
Whatever happens i do know two things for certain, he will be found guilty, and the torture he endured in the marine prison will not be an issue in court either.
As normal for just about everything good old London gets left out. It's like we all have lurgy.
OK by me
Hackers are menace, a scourge that needs to be dealt with. If Jackson wants to kill them it's fine by me
Re: How dare they................
Piratebay are nothing more than thieves fencing stolen goods. When i said a thief i meant a thief. They cannot be called anything else. Lets hope they keep up the good work though.
How dare they................
Stealing from a thief is sooooooooo unprofessional.
We escaped lightly. The meteor could have exploded over a pub.
Whatevere the views are there is one undenyable fact. THE L.H.C. opened the world of physics to the average person on the street. I, and a lot like me never gave phisics a second thought. The hole L.H.C. project instilled interest in a way rarely seen in a boring subject. Even when they got the power supply wrong and blew the L.H.C. up it gained peoples interest in the subject.
I take my hat off to them
Health And Safety Issue
In 300 years some stupid git is going to end up breaking his toe on that.
Got to admit it's a real good shot
As most networks, includung T-mobile, have massive gaps in their networks how were they able to be so precise?
With falling sales figures the only answer is to undercut your neighbour. As that hasn't happened yet i can only think of either a shortage of kids in workshops, or a price fixing regime amongst the players.
The bit where the big superpower tried to enter Iceland and use Icelandic police as a their peronnal puppet is a good guess.
Can it be used during foreplay?
For forcing thousands to change their passwords he was lucky. I would have given him to the american legal system for a corrupt trial and sentence.
Could i be next please.......................?
Internet Explorer is compatible with Windows 7 SP1 or above only. That rules out most laptops with Windows preinstalled unless a massive £70+ is coughed up for an upgrade.
Money grabbing gits
The answer is NO!!!!!
Just in case they do find life on mars, the answer is no, you can't have a council house.
Whether this claim is bogus or not it will force millions of innocent people to change their passwords.
Anonymous are nothing more than morons with the brains of a slug on a motorway. I hope the yanks catch every one of them.
No matter what size, shape, colour, software, or electrical wizardry is in the box one thing is certain.........
......Samsung will sue.
And the world still goes round and round
The U.S. House Intelligence Committee has recommended that the Chinese Huawei Technologies company be declared a security risk and threat to national security because "China has the means, opportunity, and motive to use telecommunications companies for malicious purposes" (The Telegraph 8th October).
Now for ten points........
Who supplies most, if not all, of the routers used by BT in the U.K. today.?
Re: Assange is my enemy and it's great that my government has declared him "enemy of the state"
"You seem to be a knowledgeable guy, tell us what it's like when hemorrhoids play up. Do they tickle, do they dance? What happens when they play up?"
Why the sudden interest in my bum?
Re: Assange is my enemy and it's great that my government has declared him "enemy of the state"
Hemorrhoids playing you up?
If they do use drones on the Ecuadorian Embassy in London then perhaps we should warn everyone in Amsterdam to climb under the kitchen table.
NASA put in place the Near-Earth Object Program Office.. They then spent two years and millions setting up the Sentry automatic impact monitoring system to watch for earth bound objects. Then along comes two pensioners from russia and find the stupid thing.
In every case of a DDoS the FBI have a very successful history in hunting down and prosecuting those responsible. Their history in this makes it undeniable. They are good, real good at it.
With that undeniably outstanding success rate a prosecution should be not far away. What will happen in this case we all know. Every single excuse in the book will be used to explain the failure to even start an investigation. That one simple fact will prove beyond anyone’s doubt that it was either Santa or the feds that were involved
Not being the brightest spark on the planet i always thought the removals were complaint based. Being bot based i have to ask why has this buggy bot been allowed to roam around YouTube with these flaws for so long? Why hasn't there been remedial work on the program? As there is a long history of errors to work with.. If it took me six hours to upload a long video i would be more than a little upset especially if it is accepted as acceptable collateral damage.
If F- Secure is correct then who owned the stereo.
As it happened in Australia it was probably the first mobile phone over there. In that instance you have to expect the odd spelling mistake.
I wonder how many televisions, lifts, and vibrators will stop working when this one hits.
If i remember correctly Microsoft had something like this in their long and dodgy past. They had groups that were both open to all, as well as invite only. They also had an excellent forum setup.
Correct me if i'm wrong but didn't Microsoft shit on everyone and close the whole lot down, leaving everyone screwed?
