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.

"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.
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
Re: A can of worms..
...and the bagless containers need a bit of a wash out after a bit too.....to get rid of the dust stuck in the crevices, sides, rubber etc
I can't see what the flap is all about!
Sorry 3, computer says 'No'.
#We're looking into it
Not much to say really........except whooopdeedoo!
Now can the rest of it disappear up it's own rear port?
Re: All that crap
Obviously a very long time since you were learning......and not much stayed - or was understood - by the looks of it.
Here's a refresher....if you can believe any of it.
Re: Solution is Easy
Yup. Reported on the BBC as being over two dozen websites worldwide that have seen this type of depraved activity.
But as far as the innocent being guilty. How many people look up RIPE in the course of their day job? In which case how many have looked up RIPE.org in error?
Re: I've already solved this problem
Unless you happen to live in South Africa .........
"FireEye said the attack was pulled off using a vulnerable version of WordPress."
How many times has this happened involving WordPress.....any how many more times will it!

Could be interesting

'Igniting a bullet's' what?
Is this football as in the proper sense, or the American barsterdization of the term? (I suspect the latter as 'field' is used rather than pitch).
Please can you return to using internationally recognized measurements?
Better late than never to start introducing security. Wordpress.....!
Re: Hypothetically speaking
Hypothetically - it depends on the data.
Why over write? You could remove and deguass or remove and shred the hard drive(s) - all by an accredited company with each disposal signed off by them, putting the onus on them. The remaining parts sold on.
Or if they just need to be 'Blancco'd' - the contratc by the accredited company should specify - and again each disposal signed off by them.
Not too difficult really.
2 classic fails
'NHS Surrey chose to leave an approved provider........'
'the health board did not sign a contract with the firm which clearly explained its legal requirements under the Data Protection Act.'
Looks like there was a dislocation of the Head of IT and Finance/Contracts body that went unattended and ended in a terminal condition.
Re: "Why ... use cloud services anyway?"
Because the ears of the Cabinet Office are being tweaked and spoken into by those who have a personal interest in 'Cloud' perhaps? Why listen to Civil Servants who only go on about recognising risks when the world is being promised to you by industry experts?
Emporer's clothes again.
Re: took the quiz
Oh those endorphin rushes when connecting.....and just hoping there wasn't a POS moment!
It was worth it.....even it we did divorce later.

This reminds me. Where has AmanfromMars1 gone. Long holiday?
