Years ago the ICO were absolutely useless - reports of abuse disappeared into a black hole.
These days, they want to give the impression that they are trying harder. They are at Glasgow Central Station today giving advice on Nuisance Calls.
that if you're called O'Reilly it won't let you enter your name.
Surely if both victim and thief have Enom accounts, you just use the same trick to steal the domain back again?
Step 5 of the M group's advisory (linked to in the original article):
(optional) Immediately transfer the domain elsewhere by changing the IPS tag and registrant email address making the domain extremely difficult if not impossible to recover without a manual intervention

Obviously. If it were a movie, there would be a ring of lights around the edge of the visor shining onto the actors' faces and blinding them.
And does the radar have sufficient resolution to differentiate between cones and pyramids?
I roll my own, but as well as the geographical aspect, using a big VPN provider also means that your traffic is mixed in with everyone else's, rather than a single IP address being solely associated with you.
Exactly the same. Phishing attack, credentials compromised, "Copyfish was updated to V2.8.5", "started to insert ads/spam into websites"
but no vest (waistcoat). That would make an excellent addition to the kickstarter.
Surely "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale"?
Seeing as I'm now several chapters into Charlie Stross's "Delirium Brief", I wonder if they can be upgraded to SCORPION STARE capability?
If an animal triggers a (concealed) wildlife camera to take a picture - who owns the copyright?
My thought exactly.
The recycle bin is actually a data dictionary table containing information about dropped objects. Dropped tables and any associated objects such as indexes, constraints, nested tables, and the likes are not removed and still occupy space. They continue to count against user space quotas, until specifically purged from the recycle bin or the unlikely situation where they must be purged by the database because of tablespace space constraints.
A follower just advised they recently notified @TheAA_UK about 13GB of exposed DB backups. It's not clear if they ever notified customers.
This incident was related to the AA shop & retailers’ orders rather than sensitive info. It was rectified and taken seriously.

"The Convair B-39 Peacemaker is the most formidable weapon in our Strategic Air Command's arsenal for peace. Powered by eight nuclear-heated Pratt and Whitney NP-4051 turbojets, it circles endlessly above the Arctic ice cap, waiting for the call.
+1 - exactly what I was going to post!
It is generally acknowledged that BIOS updates should only be applied to fix a known issue. In this case, however, for some Dell systems, the issue is the Intel AMT remote security vunlerability: CVE-2017-5689
This affects at least one laptop to my personal knowledge: Dell XPS 15 9560
His address will be public
He seems to have had several addresses, all in the same area of a certain university city. The question is which is the most recent and whether it is still valid? Has he been renting accommodation?

As well as a couple of on-line backups of my data, for several years I've carried a LUKS encrypted 64GB USB flash stick around with me. New photos have caused the amount of data to grow, so I recently bought a 128GB drive. It encrypted OK, then formatted as ext4, and the rsync worked OK for a while, then it started throwing errors and became unusable.
I can only assume that recent cheap USB sticks concentrate the wear levelling of erase blocks in the areas used by the FAT, and having file metadata stored anywhere else, as any other filesystem format will do, will cause rapid damage.
A quick google later, I've just found this site: How to Damage a FLASH Storage Device which confirms my suspicions.
Is it safe for me to click on that link at work?
Should be safe enough, so long as the phrases "muchly watered" and "hanging basket" aren't going to trip a content filter.
The State Capitol building in Denver, Colorado, has mile high (5280 feet, 1609m) elevation markers on its steps. Most of the more populated areas, e.g. Boulder and Colorado Springs are at about 1600m, but the Air Forces Cheyenne Mountain Complex (NORAD, and where the Stargate is kept) is at about 7200 feet / 2200m. We don't want that bursting into flames!
That brings back memories. It's not quite 30 years (June 1987) since Tim and I started porting 1st Word Plus to the Archimedes.
Who would have thought it, especially after MS dropped support for MIPS, etc. after NT4.
