'I'm COMING for you, DIRTBAG!': Ex-Sony chief Smedley to Kid Lizard hacker

nuked
Facepalm

On the basis that I couldn't mindlessly slaughter zombies on my PS4 over the Christmas break, I say let the guy hang. Seems proportionate.

As an aside, didn't I see somewhere that Sony's security contractors told the court that this had cost them over £100k?! So kid finds gaping hole; security company incurs costs fixing the hole that should already be fixed, and then uses this amount ("as damages") to try and seek a harsher punishment in court?! wtf.

Facebook bug could have ERASED the ENTIRE WORLD

nuked

Re: Cheque $12,500 USD

It is an insultingly poor gesture given the number of testicles saved from the chop by such a find. Would it really hurt Farcebook that much to stick a zero on the end and give the odd bug-finder a jackpot commensurate with what Farcebook developers earn when writing these bugs?

Jokers.

Any what, exactly, has a manifesto to do with the decisions that those elected to power actually end up taking. A general election is simply a measure of who can sell the biggest story to a gullible population.

Go Canada: Now ILLEGAL to auto-update software without 'consent'

nuked

Re: hmmm...

I suspect that making it illegal will allow for more persuasive conversations with other software vendors who's legitimate activities have in the past accommodated what-was-until-now a legal practice. Now that it is illegal, I should imagine that this will become increasingly harder to do.

Good news: 'password' is no longer the #1 sesame opener, now it's '123456'

nuked

Re: It's not just about websites though is it?

Contrary to popular belief, written down passwords are not a great security risk, when looking a the root causes of intrusions. The enforced renewing of passwords is however a major damage limiter for infiltrated systems. Drives me nuts too, but the numbers say it is certainly worth the inconvenience.

I don't get some of the comments here. Taking the story at face value[1], this guy had history trying to blow us up and we jailed him for not providing a password which may have stopped some of his nutter mates from also trying to blow us up. Forget laws for a minute, seems like a perfectly reasonable way to deal with the situation.

Bizarre Tolkien-inspired GCHQ Xmas card CAN'T BE READ by us PLEBS

Personally i think it's entirely plausible that GCHQ would use this type of engagement at this kind of audience. They have confirmed the intent publically (for the first time ever) to the parliamentary committee. If it is fake, where then is our actual Xmas card with witty and insightful verse??

Disagree

My position is quite against the flow on this, which surprises me because I am firmly against most attempts to control my access to information, or decision making.

Anyone who caught a glimpse of Joseph From Essex on ITV's recent jungle programme will probably share my amazement that this fully grown man did not know how to tell the time. He explained that he'd had an iPhone since about 7 and, well, "it's on the front". Each generations capability with the internet greatly surpasses the previous. It is clear to all, I hope, that it is nearly impossible to avoid pornography online, and it would be irresponsible to not try and protect the development of younger children.

We can't choose our parents, and whilst most would install their own filters when introducing technology to their kids, there are those who just couldn't give a toss. Or more likely, they're still trying to figure out where to put the installation CD.

I do not see the problem with an ISP having a default filter, with quite a broad scope, on the strict conditions that (a) the fact my search is filtered is very clear; and (b) I am able to easily switch it off.

Try harder

As always the attempt to create a honey trap is painfully obvious (Silk Road 2.0); oh please. Any previous user who is not missing his/her cerebrum is long gone, and the saps getting caught are new users who have been invited to search for drugs through TOR, because the TV recently said that they could.

Microsoft and Google unite to sue US gov't for more transparency

nuked

Anyone who thinks that moving their email, or their social networking to a site which is not hosted in the US, is deluded. Snowden's disclosures are the the tip of the iceberg I feel, and I cannot imagine that there are many places on earth that are outside of the reach of NSA surveillance. In fact, I would go as far as to say that I'd feel more comfortable with Google, as they are clearly made aware of the data that is shared, as distinct from a non-US site where the data is likely just slurped without a second consideration.

Julian Assange: Google's just an arm of US government

Holmes

Global companies with lots of capital and overwhelming power, get a bit too close to global capitalist governments.

In other news, Pope found to be Catholic.

And I don't necessarily have a problem with it. Without such synergies at the very highest levels, you would be in the insane position where governments don't really matter at all, as people outside of government have accumulated all the wealth and control over the worlds economies and infrastructure.

Oh. wait....
