"One of the things that’s important to us as a company, we have a stated mission of providing users with information, and so we always think it’s our duty to explore possibilities to give users access to information. What's your stated mission for China?
Providing users with information (as long as the local government approves of it), doesn't have the same grandiose ring to it, does it?
"After thorough examination and a range of functional tests, the investigations firm found absolutely no evidence of malicious hardware on our motherboards,"
So they have had now jumped through hoops and proven to the best of their ability that the claims are completely false. What's bloopersberg going to do now? probably nothing.
Super Micro lawsuit?
But James has apparently pooh-poohed these concerns, brushing them aside in an interview with The Telegraph by saying people should "get over" privacy and security concerns associated with ID cards.
Yes of course we'll get over the governments inability to deliver an IT project on time, on money and not a complete mess.
I fail to see the benefit here and throwing millions from tax payers at it will not change that.
Why millions of Brits' mobile phones were knackered on Thursday: An expired Ericsson software certificate
EMIS Group is one of four principal suppliers to the NHS. Its health suite is used by 10,000 organisations and holds more than 40 million records. 40 million records going into the cloud, what could possibly go wrong?
Shifting patient records to the cloud requires approval from NHS Digital, so there isn't a timeline yet, It will be rubber stamped by NHS Digital without any discussions regarding security.
"Marriott learned during the investigation that there had been unauthorized access to the Starwood network since 2014."
Unauthorised access for four years. The entire booking database with 500 million guest details in it but no one noticed anything.
Equifax were bitch slapped with a fine but these guys are going to be ass kicked.
I remember a particular person coming to me with malware on their laptop, I asked him what he had been doing, did any dodgy sites open up in the browser etc. He said he didn't look at pron or anything like that. Hmmm..too much information there and now i'm suspicious. Nuked it and gave it him back. A few days later i'm walking past his office and the whole screen is flashing multiple colours with a a single word in the middle of the screen. The word was SEX.
GCHQ pushes for 'virtual crocodile clips' on chat apps – the ability to silently slip into private encrypted comms
Financial firms have admitted they don't upgrade or remove end-of-life kit fast enough
I remember helping out a friend that had just started his own small computer shop back in the early 2000s. A person from a local bank came asking for us a try to fix a machine what wouldn't boot correctly said it was a critical system. I said no worries and they presented me with an 8086
The test for a site's illegality will be widened from sites whose "primary purpose" is infringement, to cover sites whose "primary effect" is infringement, That's YouTube royally screwed.
"copyright is better addressed by making the content available: conveniently, affordably, and in a timely way".
Well there's a turn up for the books. Never expected a politician to say something sensible.
Networking Solutions falls under IT and Networks, one of six divisions at Capita. IT and Networks revenue fell 9.3 per cent to £197.6m in the first half of 2018, with profits falling further, down 35.6 per cent to £21.5m.
That could be one of the reasons Beatrice has moved onto new challenges outside of Capita.
British MPs have made unprecedented use of Parliamentary powers to send a serjeant at arms to the hotel where the boss of a US software biz was staying to seize potentially damaging documents on Facebook.
Well maybe not all of our MPs are gutless after all.
I'm impressed and shocked at the same time.
Smart meters are meter readers nothing more.
We've already seen how unsecure they are and how they get turned into a glorified brick when you change energy supplier.
What is the point in spending such a huge amount of taxpayers money for something that clearly doesn't work!?!
The thing that really gets on my nerves is that the best tariffs are already smart meter only.
I do not want a smart meter and i'm not going to be forced into having one.
What the #!/%* is that rogue Raspberry Pi doing plugged into my company's server room, sysadmin despairs
TalkTalk hackhack duoduo thrownthrown in the coolercooler: 'Talented' pair sentenced for ransacking ISP
Dhir thought Hanley was a "dedicated hacker," and added that both he and Allsopp were apparently "individuals of extraordinary talent."
Is that statement to make the general public feel better about TalkTalk and their stupidity?!? or is it to make the general public feel safer because the hardened hackers are being put behind bars?!?
Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office
In a statement, a Microsoft spokesperson told us: "We are committed to our customers’ privacy, putting them in control of their data and ensuring that Office ProPlus and other Microsoft products and services comply with GDPR and other applicable laws.
Caught for snooping and you that statement?!?!
You might as well have released "We are committed to privacy, blah, blah, blah, yeah bored now"
If at first or second you don't succeed, you may be Microsoft: Hold off installing re-released Windows Oct Update
a bug it knew was present in Windows, but chose not to fix in the re-release of build 1809. It suggests setting up script files, scheduled tasks, or changing the group policy settings. That said, these may not last beyond a reboot, and could need to be reapplied.
No, no and no.
I am not messing around with workarounds for a problem that shouldn't be there. You knew it was there and should have resolved it before releasing the patch again.
Microsoft says it'll sort out the issues "in the 2019 timeframe."
You think fixing it next year is reasonable time frame, who are you trying to kid?
"Since the age of 25, I have instructed my employees and secretaries, so I don't use computers myself."
How can you be Deputy Cyber Security Minister if you haven't used computers in 25 years?!?
Technology has moved on a hell of a lot in 25 years.
Does this man have a small army of advisors so he can actually do the job?
Scumbag who phoned in a Call of Duty 'swatting' that ended in death pleads guilty to dozens of criminal charges
Barriss will be sentenced on January 30, 2019, while Viner, 18, of Ohio, and Gaskill, 20, of Kansas, are still awaiting trial after denying any wrongdoing.
How can either denying any wrongdoing?!?
One deliberately gave out the wrong address and the other dared someone else to place the call like a coward.
I hope the courts teach these two idiots that there are consequences to your actions.
I found a security hole in Steam that gave me every game's license keys and all I got was this... oh nice: $20,000
Ex-Microsoft manager sues former coworkers and Windows giant over claims of sex assault, gender discrimination
"She reported this assault to Eunice Lunde (Human Resources). Her report was investigated, her complaint was substantiated, and she was told that the employee was disciplined for 'unwanted physical contact.'"
If this is true then Microsoft need to get a grip. I don't care who you are or what your job is, you do something like this and you should be out the door not disciplined.
When he later hit a button to clean the suite's cache, rather than delete the "Media Cache" folder in his "Videos" directory, it instead wiped everything that hadn't been accessed for 90 or more days from the whole "Videos" directory, it is claimed.
I would have videos and cache two separate directories.
Over the next three days he would try in vain to get the wiped documents back with a recovery tool.
A standard delete should have been easy to recover from with basic tools unless overwritten of course.
Adobe would later acknowledge the bug in the release notes for a Premiere Pro 2017 11.1.1 update, saying the patch
Come on Adobe, how did this get past beta testing?
If you have inner peace, it's probably 'cos your broadband works: Zen Internet least whinged-about Brit ISP – survey
The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee pulled no punches in its latest report, warning of "dire consequences" if Whitehall doesn't boost funding and address the "complete failure" in Home Office leadership.
"complete lack of coordination and leadership on upgrading technology over many years"
Lack of leadership and coordination from the Home Office, well i've never heard that before...oh wait..
