Interesting, hundreds of comments from technically adept people, but not a single one of them ran tcpdump, ettercap or wireshark to see what is really the matter. That kinda makes me wonder what kind of person reads theregister these days.

Building a system with a web browser and hot linking and then telling users not to click on links is ridiculous. Don't blame the user for your own incompetence.
Sharepoint is a great tool for storing data. Retrieving it however...
Re: All sounds German to me
Afrikaans Nederlands - Maak seker.
Re: It's a bit disappointing
Labcoat!? Clipboard!? Maybe 25 years ago, not today.
That will end in blood sweat and tears. Active Directory really doesn't like it when you rename something.
Dawson City is a nice and balmy -32 C now.
Pics - or it didn't happen...
Re: "loosened regulatory controls on medical companies"
Well, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - and people who die don't sponge on society, so loosened regulation tends to kill several flies in the ointment with one swat...
Re: Security is rubbish
The Windows 10 version:
10 i've been to lazy to make a coffee.....
15 send lazy count to walgreens.com for abilify re-order
20 maybe a coffee would help you get motivated?
25 send coffee cup count to starbucks.com
30 goto 10
Yeah, I guess state-based means somebody in his mom's basement in the You Knighted States...
Re: Why do Defense networks insist on being accessible via Internet ?
Hmm, 75 baud Baudot RTTY would sure limit the damage.
Re: Friction Piles
Have you been to Venice? It is wood and turtles all the way down into the swamp...
Re: Not the developer's fault.
Hmm, there are actually lots of leaning towers in Italy. The Piza clock tower is quite nice, but not even the prettiest either, although this SF tower is on an ever so slightly larger scale.
Well, being ex military, I am sorry to say, but torture does in fact work and when it can save lives, it will be used, whether it is official policy or not.
The problem with disallowing torture, is that soldiers may still torture and then kill the captive, to hide the act of torture.
Re: The FBI
Err... Trump moved into the White House and was inaugurated already? Wow, I must have blinked and not seen Obama high tailing it out of there.
OK, so they found voda - yeah da. Call me when they find vodka!
Re: Can you hold down the power button
I wish I could send you a picture of what the Enter key on my Mac looks like. At the top is some Arabic jargon, under that is a hooked arrow pointing to the left, then a hooked arrow pointing to the right and at the bottom is an arrow pointing up. I have no idea what any of that means. I bought the bladdy thing in Dubai...
Blame the (L)user
Corporate IT always resorts to blame the user:
* Don't click dodgy links.
* Don't open suspicious attachments.
Well, fuck me sideways - How is a common user supposed to do the above, when the IT overlords are themselves totally incapable of keeping said crap out of their kingdom?
I had no idea that AOL still had 500 employees.
Re: The plot thickens!
"You correct! This proves cannot be work Russian and is responsibility us evil Westerners.
By way, I am Yankee just like you. I has nothing gain from pretending be foreigner!"
Yup, Slavs tend to speak English without 'a' and 'the', making it sound weirdly staccato.
I was wearing a CCCP T-shirt to a party and the first thing my (now) wife told me was: "Where you get that shirt? You look like Russian athlete." She still speaks that way.
Cars that catch fire almost every day actually.
Man, it is Orlando! If you walk, you can get mugged or run over by a taxi. That is why they offered the courtesy car.
I fail to see what this article has to do with either Pat or Slackware?
Some people just don't understand how disk encryption systems work.
With 'whole disk encrypttion' the /boot partition has to be unencrypted, otherwise the machine cannot boot - duh.
You can boot a computer up various ways and get a console - another duh.
The rest of the disk is still encrypted and the data is still unreadable and safe. So there is no problem, this is how it is supposed to work.
Hmm, NHS IT may need to buy a few of these for their email system right now.
Re: Seen it.
The problem is not the dumb users. The problem is the dum bass who configured the mail system in such a way that this failure is possible. Any self respecting mail server should block spam - including HR spam and other idiocies like this.
Re: So, the UK population has doubled?
You under counted the Travellers, Sirians and Afhanis by about 6.5 million...
Re: Just keep adding people!
That is why every MS IT droid needs a Gamer Keyboard with macro keys.
I'm amazed that MS Exchange can handle that many users and mails. At least, since it uses a database back-end, it didn't replicate the messages 80 * 1.2 million times.
Well, Russia isn't really an enemy (only for politicians looking for a campaign slogan), but I do agree that they prolly had a good larf over a few bottles of vodka at their local after making the sale.
This has been going on for ages. Try Wolfram Tones:
"Out of the years of shopping, the mounds of coupons have never been for anything I buy." - So their system is working. They are trying to get you to buy something different that you aren't buying already.
Re: From across the pond
Move to Canada dude. Small business income tax works out to about 12% if you know what you are doing. Oh, the immigration website crashed. Sorry...
Efficiency kills jobs
It is simple Economics 101, that productivity increases come at the expense of jobs. So the obvious way to improve employment in a country is to slow down increases in productivity and make trade and markets less efficient. That is what Trump promised - roll back some of the trade deals and bring back jobs to America. That is also what the UK is doing with Brexit.
Bloody hell. Who did the craptastic wiring on that thing?
Re: Recurve or Compound?
Stringing it is prolly what slowed the shooter down a bit, else he would have hit the guy from the front in the gonads.
Re: Bloke was lucky
"Your honour, he was coming for me and I shot the arrow, but the arrow travels slowly, so he spun around and was hit in the derrier...".
'olive skinned white' - Eh, wot?
Och, my heart bleeds for you dude. After all these eleventy seven odd years shlepping bit buckets and shuffling white space about and you still haven't discovered pretty printers such as... wait for it... drum roll... indent - sigh...
Re: It's early...
The baristas will be called Coffee Grindrs instead.
You are welcome, I'll be here all week.
You mean manyfold my dear editor.
Re: Dat Shutterstock photo!
"Classroom attendants are perfectly groomed" - The typical super unrealistic USAsian college soapy, where the men are all androgenous with weird hairdos (and beardos?), while all the women are strangely beautiful lingerie models.
Dude, ed is the standard UNIX editor, not emacs:
ed is the standard Unix text editor.
This is line number two.
We filed a guy's entire cubicle with plastic popcorn packaging - put cling wrap over the 'door' to keep it in.
Man, they must be glad that they had an intern to blame for that.
So stick a USB WiFi dongle in it.
Funny, but one doesn't need to do much flying to get to Mars: You could just stop in the right point in the Earth orbit and wait for Mars to get to you...
I think the pretty useless FCC and CE certification standards should be expanded to include security standards and pen tests for connected devices. That will exclude the craprouter manufacturers from most of the world markets unless they improve their toys.
