Wonder how well the true results stack up against the rest of the industry, given what we know for VW's design and build quality generally. I doubt there's a manufacturer out there who are not doing exactly the same, and if so, it's fairly inconceivable to think that the testers/regulators were not complicit. Either that or they are a complete bunch of drooling retards. I'll do them the favour of assuming that instead they're simply corrupt.

Re: Bolt for Free ?
Horse bolted door?
That's about all that can be made...
140 companies comprised the UEFI

The future of healthcare is heavily weighted towards prevention and early identification, with our personal data key to any deep machine learning that might help along the way...
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.
We might get a picture of dinosaurs on an Ark after all...
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?

Re: Try Vote for Policies
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.
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.
Front doors appear to be enough these days...
Wait. What? So my phone is using GPS even though I've turned it off in the settings?? Who knew?

Re: Few CIOs or VP ITs can code
Execs without exception believe that because a change takes 4 seconds to articulate, it will take roughly the same amount of time to develop.
Re: Could originate in Spain
You don't have to be a government employee to write software for use by the state...
Why would the NSA request data that they are supposed to have sight of anyway? Surely, it's just to make it legally actionable.
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.
Re: What about passwords to secure government VPNs?
I suspect your NDA has some form of 'imminent danger' clause
That is like saying the bomb maker is innocent because he didn't open the briefcase...
I don't get some of the comments here. Taking the story at face value, 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.
Re: Neat trick!
If only we had some kind of 'special' relationship...
That's a lot of border crossings in a day...
The other 5.5 billion texts are probably generated by NSA spyware. Always wondered why contracts offered 2-3k free texts a month...
When was there something that Google didn't appeal?
Security concerns are quite a side issue. The mass fraud that the banks have to underwrite pales into insignificance compared with something that enables slightly more indebted retail spending.
Why are we talking about 'people'? This isn't going to cost any one 'person' a penny. Credit Card companies need to sort their POS. Fast, I would suggest,
Making disclosures in fear of being targeted, which in doing so, paints a large target on your back. Priceless.
The guy is a class A idiot, and that's all I've got to say.
Maybe so they can force Google to remove links to anything that would make their shite software even remotely useful...
The idea that this had nothing to do with the Russians is laughable.
No, I'm Spartacus.
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??
Then they shall do just that regardless.
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.
"the first news agency of the social media age"
Possibly the funniest thing I've seen all day.
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.
"Apple Mac" - their problems started here.
Is privacy from your state not a fairly obvious right in a democracy, and therefore an issue quite comfortably in scope of 'Europe'.
Nice to see Microsoft starting to clear up their own mess...
But it is fun to watch
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.
I think Bitcoin, or moreover the principle of Bitcoin, terrifies the banks and challenges their monopoly over the world's economy. For this reason, they will lose their battle regrettably, but the show should be interesting...
Russian humour, surely...
"T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless appear not to be affected due to partial foreign ownership."
You mean, the NSA didn't need a court order...
How about stop trying to cut costs by remotely managing these facilities; employ some actual people; and take the damn systems offline.
Doesn't seem particularly difficult.
This is brilliant.
