You beat me to it, was going to say the same.
One of these things is not like the other:
"Apple does not retain deleted content once it is cleared from Apple's servers."
"Apple does not retain deleted content once it is deleted by the user."
shouldn't have been on any laptop.
OK nothing is perfect... swap space, temp files, hibernation file etc., etc. There are many ways that sensitive data can make its way onto and be recovered from a laptop drive or indeed any PC/tablet/phone etc.
The point is that if you have hardware that reads sensitive data the file system should be encrypted. And any place where the data could be stored during use should be zeroed/shredded at shut down.
Yes I am paranoid.
If they use a laptop as a secured server, then the above is moot.

I wish I had attended your lectures... Richard Feynman.
I get bored driving, at least if piloting a plane I could read a book instead of photographing the passing landscape and checking farcebook on my phone.
I am not sure if I am joking ;-)
However ... For someone over the age of 12 to say this... "Donald Trump should be invited to make an official State Visit because he is the leader of a free world and U.K. is a country that supports free speech and does not believe that people that appose [sic] our point of view should be gagged." Reminds me of ... "We're all doomed" - John Laurie/private Frazier.
I don't care either way, the only view have on all of this is... Always look for motive first. And when dealing with politicians and the exceedingly wealthy, never expect altruism to be anywhere near that motivation.
is a local non-franchised business. Just one office.
They tell me that my voice is being recorded for training purposes, before I recite my card details down the phone I am asked to wait whilst they switch off the recording feature.
Not hard is it?
Perhaps it would be prudent to refuse to give card information until one is assured that the recording has been stopped. Of course, lies could be told but if the recordings are ever leaked or stolen they would be self evident.
There is no need for a company to record or store credit card information, I would rather have the hassle of the extra 15-20 seconds it would take to complete future purchases.
that was far from perfect. Remote access was allowed to the provider to sort out various issues that arose. This was a DOS based thing that ran on a Novell server. Buggy software and poor transaction logs/no software checking as to why it was not closed gracefully etc. Meant locked files and EOF markers not being written after Windows crashed. I eventually worked out how to fix all this myself.
However the the point being... I changed the password every time they connected, fixed and logged out. They were never very happy about having to ask me for the password each time they logged in.
A CCTV system may or may not be as high risk as a payroll system (depends where the cameras face). Still, why can't engineers ask for the password so they can login to fix? No one should have admin access to any system except the administrator.
I am old school, I will die old school.
No noise about human rights abuse.
Plenty of oil bought.
Plenty of weapons sold.

I guess napkins are so 20th century.
"The private connection means faster pipes, less latency and therefore less failover or loss of service. Also, supposedly, greater protection."
After all... This is not just a cloud, this is a M
And to get from the former to the latter the amount of effort that must go into persuading Exec and Finance is...
Exponentially proportional to greed

Is that an emotion?
that The Register would have much less to report...
However it seems to me that reporting on SECURE apps, websites, IOT devices and Internet based services would be news. Where as reporting on INSECURE apps, websites, IOT devices and Internet based services is like reporting that the sky appears blue because of the way different wavelengths of light are scattered.
Not covered in stale piss?
Perhaps the control panel should be at shoulder height (when sat) near to the toilet roll dispenser. However, not being familiar with Japanese toileting culture, perhaps Japanese males sit to urinate, on a level with the toilet rim a few centimetres to the left could be perfect.
"So the executives get paid out and the workers at the bottom shovel shit."
Or become redundant as their job gets shifted to an overseas call centre.
Does any one with an IQ in double figures give a fuck?
Shouldn't this article be in one of those pointless chat/gossip magazines?
Or is Cardinal Gerhard Muller just making it all up?
Subject "Wrong model"
Body "We apologizefor sending the wrong model of the product yesterday.
Attached is the new invoice for your product No. 64038236." (sic)
It would be more fruitful if these malware slingers did some research.
Find a company that sells product/parts... get a real product/part number send email:
Subject: "Wrong part received"
Body: "You sent the wrong part <real product/part number>, please see attached for the correct part number and our purchase order number. We will pay your invoice on receipt of the correct item.
"know your enemy" - Sun Tzu.
However, why go to those length when even the broad brush attacks seem to work often enough.
"... and "walked" a security engineer through resolving the mind-bending bug".
So not only was the "security engineer" unaware of the permission settings, he/she could not even correct the problem without help?
Addendum: It's not a bug, file and directory permissions are a feature. This is just sloppy website administration.
should also be able to check for prior art.
Or would a hard coded directive be introduced adding a fourth law of robotics in order to override any common sense the AI was to independently develop?
too drunk:didn't read:don't give a fuck.
I know its only Wednesday. I know I need to change my outlook (perhaps for home brew email). In fact I know there are many things I should care about... Brexit and cloud are not even on the list. As for OSS..... I'll show you mine even if you don't show me yours.
To be honest no one... However, I would very much like karma to precise and near instantaneous.
"Microsoft is developing a technology for Windows 10 designed to combat the threat of malware served up from web pages penetrating corporate defences and slurping sensitive data".
Oh that's OK then.
Should they not be getting this EU Privacy Shield Framework agreed with the EU?
the banks would cross check a fingerprint against a crime database.
I expect the government would encourage the police to do that.
Until uk.gov decides that it is a good idea.
They were pretty picky and choosy which European laws were adhered to pre-Brexit. I can still see them picking an choosing.
The difficultly in bypassing this depends on what kind of ID is required to be presented to reveal ones identity... Someone else's birth certificate? Another's Credit card? or would a valid passport be required?
Bad move for non-smokers to take up vaping.
Good move for those already addicted to nicotine.
The marketing of vaping as being a trendy thing to do should be banned. The focus of e-cig marketing should be on their use as an aid to giving up tobacco.
Smoking as in rolling up, or having a cigarette is habit forming. Nicotine itself is addictive. The advertising for e-cigs should carry a warning that the the wonderful flavours being tasted contain a highly addictive chemical.
If not, perhaps they should share their infosec methodologies with other government departments.
Does this mean I don't need a cooker?
If it cost less than a fiver.... almost.
And thus it should be.
1) Don't mess with my Internet. I pay for access not for what the state or an ISP determines to be appropriate, allowed or suitable.
2) Don't throttle my Internet, I pay for access, I determine what should have priority. Not you.
3) Don't port block... Advertise the service as port 80, 443, 21, 23, 25 etc. only. Are you an Inter-network service provider or something else?
4) Tell the fucking truth in your advertising, don't quote the best possible speeds obtainable from someone plugged into your exchange MUX with a fucking cable.
5) Parents should be raising and protecting their children, not the state, not ISP's.
6) Child abuse has been happening since there were children, denying access to child porn does not stop it. It only forces it further underground making it harder to find the real nasty bastards out there.
I am sick of seeing "sent from my iPhone" adverts on emails.
"but because I cannot afford the project to re-image the fleet for no return whatsoever."
Can you afford to be Microsoft's bitch? think long term, not 2 years ahead.
The return is open standards compliance and free open source software... Just give back what you take for what you paid ;-)
Applications needed to perform a duty and access rights is all that differentiates your work force.
Legacy systems are an issue... Someone smart would take a day or two to find open standard alternatives.
If I were in your position... which I was, though quite a few years ago now. I would be looking to sack MS completely.
Good luck. I am MS free.
thinks they are just trying to drum up interest.
Any CTO/Head of IT should and will be sceptical of migration to Windows 10 considering that Microsoft are using their customers as beta testers.
On the other hand, if there is a band wagon some find it hard to resist jumping on it...The keep up with the Joneses mentality. So what do they have to lose?
How many elephants is that on the head of a pin?
As a reseller I cannot afford such luxury.
Waiting for my provider and all other UK based registrars to do the same now.
"Some get the gravy
And some get the gristle
Some get the marrow bone
And some get nothing
Though there's plenty to spare"
I see a crutch for MS during it's continuing decline into irrelevancy.
"The crux of such deals has invariably been the various hardware firms’ use of either Linux, Android or Chrome with Microsoft dangling in front of them the prospect of unspecified patent infringements of Redmond's patents."
I have no desire to be rich, however if I had thousands of employees I would be careful.
As I do not have the burden of worrying about employees, my response to MS would be...
"Specify them and make your claims public or fuck off"
I can't wait to dangle my nuts over your dying corpse Microsoft.
Or do everything poorly
for an amateur coder to fork PowerShell.
It will be more reliable and more trustworthy.
MS have been irrelevant to me for some time now, although Win 7 does do games rather well... Most of the time.
I drink too much... Responsibility for IT systems is the monkey on my shoulder. Reliance on third parties is the proverbial last straw.
"It is hard to see the value of Microsoft's "consumer experiences" in
a business any context,..."
Seems to be turning into a two choice operating system.
Choice one: use it and and let Microsoft dictate your "experiences".
Choice two: use another OS.
Not always, some of us are honest.
My last employer was an multinational American corporation. And despite having full access to everything on the server, desktops and portables, including T+A, payroll systems, BACS etc. I am still a poor man financially. Integrity wise, something I value over money, I am quids in.
A divine being I ain't. I just set my own standards and adhere to them, in spite of the temptations.
AFAIK... It is about collecting virtual things from real world locations.
If said virtual things can be sold for real money, there may be a point to hunting them down, a cost/benefit analysis would be required.
Said virtual things do provide bragging rights to those that also collect said virtual things, so if you have an e-peen that you like to wave about to fellow collectors of said things, there maybe benefits to your ego.
I cannot see any other potential advantage to fsckin around with this stuff. Oh wait... one might get to poke a dead body with a stick. And the gene pool might get a bit of cleansing as some walk into moving traffic whilst focused on a 5"x3" screen.
Joke, meh, doh, stop, go, fail?.... lol most icons seem appropriate.. I won't use one.
Professional enough to hack into a rivals database.
Amateur enough to be caught.
until it is observed. And even then, observers tend to observe what they want to observe.
Apparently according to the Schroedinger wave equation, observation aka measurement collapses the wave function. Were every single one of these Neutrinos observed before being sent off to the distant detector?
I love thinking about this stuff, counting sheep and writing code in my head at bedtime gets tedious.
Paris, because I would never look to her for intellectual stimulation.
