BT's spam blocker IDs accident claims as top nuisance call

frankster

BT charge you to show you who is calling you, so I adopted a simple solution which was to switch the ringer off. Now no-one bothers me and BT doesn't get any money from people calling me.

Zero-day hole can pwn millions of LastPass users, all that's needed is a malicious site

frankster

Their entire raison d'etre is to keep your passwords more securely than you could keep them yourself. I seem to remember lastpass getting hacked a year or two ago. They sound like right cowboys.

VeriSign to raise .com, .net prices

no competition

Because there is only one source for .com domain names, its entirely to be expected that the price will continue to rise and rise

Play.com: Only customer emails lost in data breach

frankster

got spammed, but no warning email

I got the spam on sunday; but I have received no email from play.com warning me about this any time between december last year and today.

I am extremely concerned that my email address is being passed to third parties when I have explicitly stated in my account settings that I do not want to receive their newsletter.

This sounds like a contravention of data protection laws to me.
