You can't blame the bloke for milking it for all it's worth!
Next nasty re-direction
So how long will it be before we read about 'phishing' and other malicious emails circulating where the links start pointing to these 'hidden' caches of material and payload downloads to your machine. Followed by another to the hapless/hopeless victims asking for payment to remove.
Or worse, no warning. You just find out if you need to have your machine services for any reason.
Trying to convince police authorities that you were the victim of a scam could be a problem.
Re: Every household?
I haven't opted out of pizza leaflets etc as I use them as fuel on my log burner. But I haven't had this leaflet informing me about being able to opt out either.
Looks like someone's made an opt out decision for me.
GOV.UK are looking for Identity Assurance Providers for their new, exciting, great, whizzywig digital exemplars that we are going to love using. Perhaps they need look no further?
Trying to do this and .........account locked! Password reset sent to.....yup the account that's been locked not the 'other' account! And to get to the security questions to confirm who I am.....yup you need the new password!W!T!F!
7th May 2015
Please tell me what happens when I wake up on the 8th May
Slow News Day
Well, nothing in my life is that important that it can't wait a while...no life or death decisions nor contractual financial penalties. News, info....well there isn't much going on that effects folk is there that can't wait a bit.
Traffic jams happen, getting late in for work happens. Enjoy loking at the outside world. You never know, you may see something new.
Don't read anything work related when out of work - I'm not getting paid then!
Having a break from 'instant communication' can be a blessing.
Oh, and no impact here in the West Midlands
for a SH the red braces and the shirt should be a Ben Sherman checked short sleeved. And those trousers!!! Bring back the Levi jeans with turnup. And Monkey Boots.
More a Smoothie look, but he needs the porkpie hat and No6 'ticket'.
how I got my emailed statement ok earlier this month.
And if this was the rule then I'm sure there would have been an outcry from quite a number of customers in the same position as this guy. No?
Just how fast does a neutrino travel if expelled from an exploding star?
Assuming no Dark Lead is in it's path of travel
no mention of Android
if it fits.....wear it.
A bit odd to wear for a court apperance though.....or is that the de rigour for US courts?
Re: Why oh why oh why
Wake up at the back there! Where do you think all the GDS staff have come from who 'advise' Mr M of what he should say should be 'digitised' and are pushing/supporting this bizarre IDA idea. They are all from the 'great IT crowd'.
But as the report says, they are only now understanding the size of work involved and slippage of 6 -8 months on delivery is now common place - from the IT crowd, not the old fuddy duddy Civil Servants.
Publicly available PI
So if they don't want 'scapers' to access this *publicly available* data........just make it private.
It's a fact of life for any public website that contains *useful* information, robot scrapers will be used to harvest information. And as far as I know accessing *publiclicy available* data is not an offence if it does not damage the data or infrastructure it is held on or deny access to others.
BBC 30th Dec
reckons it's a European bank, with details of hack process
H2 vs HE
DMARC, SPF, DKIM
The sooner these are implemented by people as a standard the better the world would become.
Re: Flying Machines and Flying People
Well, if you were to install a video camera in the cockpit that fed to in-line video goggles you would get the same view. I know it's done over here in Blighty by R/C glider pilots, not sure about 160mph jet planes though! That would be quite a rush when flying low!
I don't think so
Will all this hoo-ha about RSA and the NSA result in Governments worldwide stop using RSA devices and put them under the same micrscope as those from Huawei?
HMRC vs Vodaphone
Looks like they could be the same entity. Where has their lawyers CIO just come from?
Whoa! Hold on there
If they are just going by the books then they are obviously ignoring the fact that many of the drinks would not have been finished. Quite a number were left on the bar/table/floor due to 'interruptions' of a physical nature!
Re: All I want for X-mas....
Or preferably a real hardon collider
Re: Go China!
China could find a ton of stuff left behind by the US and stuff sent there by USSR.
Or perhaps the odd golf ball or two.
Giving the mobile companies plenty of time to re-jig the wording in contracts and charging policies to ensure that they do not lose any income.
So much for protecting consumers.
Re: GDS (@Julian)
"They've come into a high-security public sector environment and shown the old crusties how it should be done. "
Ho hum.....says it all about GDS' approach really.
Not from my experience!
Re: Shiplee speaks sense
"Every department is being moved over to gov.uk eventually."
LOL. Depends when 'eventually' is. Looking at how progress in GDS is like watching someone swim through treacle I think that the transfers that should have been achieved this month will not be moved over until this time next year..if that.
Shiplee speaks sense
and hopefully someone in Gov will listen. Digital by default was the driver for this one. Just think how much else is being planned by other Gov Depts to meet this direction given by the Cabinet Office and how much else could be wasted.
When Reuters say "When recipients opened these documents, they loaded malicious code onto their personal computers. For about a week in late August, California-based FireEye said its researchers were able to monitor the "inner workings" of the main computer server used by the hackers to conduct their reconnaissance and move across compromised systems."
does this mean Fireeye were in the know about these breaches suggesting that they supply these five with a product ................that failed? Or were brought in after the breach (how likely?)
Or a supplier to these five disclosed information to Fireeye?
Or.....just journalist speak?
is not the Bath of the North. Have you been there? Were you drunk? ( a mandatory condition of living in the town along with a kebab with extra garlic)
St Pauls area of Bristol perhaps but Bath? Never.
So what would happen if the Court published the information, it was reposted by a foreign subscriber to Twitter, some one from the UK on hoiliday abroad saw it and re-tweeted it when outside the UK? The UK citizen was not in the UK when they did it so would they be subject to UK law stand a chance of being prosecuted or would it come under foreign law?
but wasn't there recently some police activity against people who were writing/venting not nice words against others on such, ahem, things like Twitter? So if the police could do that then why not again for these poor individuals who through no reason have been cstigated throughout cyberdom. Or perhaps would Twitter suspend/cancel the accounts of such idiots?
And when is it that pigs will fly.....
Damn and blast
Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer to be able to pick up a cheap second hand PS3!
Two views a day
5am and 7pm - getting up and coming home. Nice. Just have to hope that we don't get our usual 10/10 cloud cover here!
a little like the FM/digital systems used for children with hearing impairment in schools? Like ROGER?
driving when there was no mass market mobile phone availability? What did people do then, poor things.
Just because phones are there doesn't mean they have to be used at an inappropriate time. If a call was needed and unanswered they'll either call back later or leave a message.
Sorry. Is this some sort of important software tool? Or software used by tools?
I always thought that to be a MOM you shouldn't use a coil, let alone two
"However, simply rebooting compromised machines would appear to remove them from the botnet, so what this new type of attack gains in stealth, it loses in persistence. "
Perhaps this new type of attack is less aimed at personal machines but more likely to be corporate devices? Users on large networks probably leave their device switched on after logging off to allow remote program/patch updates to take place out of hours so RAM remains powered.
Is this just a ploy to find the Arquillian prince hiding in Brooklyn?
It's so unusual........so where are the later pics then? Sept 23rd was 6 weeks ago.
Or perhaps they don't want us to know
would love this in the pie shop. Properly jellied of course.
Re: @DougS What Won't Be
Daylight reading? That would be a novelty for a phone. Certainly high up on my list - more so than what the case is made out of and the asthetics of the modelling (how many get buried away in cases?).
I can't understand why more isn't spent on looking at this (sorry) when testing new phones. Nor the ability to be able to move Applications to a SD card/secondary memory.
Hard of hearing
Odd thoughts but...
I've always wondered why we burn a limited resource of energy to create another type of energy.
Gas may be cheap (really?) but is it now the best resource to be using to generate electricity? And how dependent are we in the UK on others to supply it to us? Who is going to pay for all the changes needed in domestic heating when the gas finally goes out?
Oh I know, not in my life time so it doesn't bother me. Get your head out the sand DHs!
Efficiencies in use of energy, insulation, new building materials - and massive decline in heavy industries that used electricity - should mean our demand for electricity supply decreased, but apparently not. So what are we in the UK using to burn up so much energy? And where is the proof? Just because the generators are turning doesn't mean that there is a light bulb on at the end of the line. Have we been generating more than required in the past and now paying the price?
As for being uncompetitive, that's been the case ever since we started selling off our industries and knowledge to countries with a larger, cheaper workforce! A quick buck made at the time and now paying the consequence.
As for being a tree hugger - as long as they are cider apple trees mate!
Head... meet desk
A couple of interesting points seen here - but lets not make mountains out of mole hills please.
All I'd like to add is.....perhaps the spokesman is more aligned with the 'gentlemen' who are generally associated with Turkish beaches? Or perhaps not, as if he were a keen beach goer he'd see less dress and more decolletage
Well, if anyone from one of the 'large organisations' joins in it could prove embarassing!
