I always wondered why the systemd controversy with Slackware. <Smug Slackware user Icon>
Thousands of attacks per hour no doubt. Meanwhile the fedex delivery notice with zip file attachment are pouring into email.
Updates have been published
Not that this is a tech forum, more a Politico thing at this point but here I go;
YMMV. AirOS 8.0.1 did come out in February and does fix the vulnerability. AirOS, AirFiber, and AirMax updated over the weekend here with no issues.
Re: How about..
Google home says it doesn't have an inhibitor chip.
I have read so many of these 'data center shut down by xxx' over the years but Never have I seen a fire alarm nor emergency power off button save a person from injury. I have been in hundreds of data centers.
This reminds me of the credits for a cult film. Maybe not but funny in anycase.
We apologize for the fault in the subtitles. Those responsible have been sacked.
The directors of the firm hired to continue the credits after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked.
The credits have been completed in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute.
Pure junk either way. I have been blocking their mailings for years via my local DNS blocklist and email server setup.
We managed to uninstall flash from all but a handful of machines and now see that M$ is backdooring it into IE like some kind of sick joke.
Spent the afternoon checking computers for Flash Player. Only found a few remaining and those are required, for now.
Not using the same password across multiple accounts is the objective here. Once your email account is compromised it is a simple thing for the criminals to take over your life.
I force password changes when there is a large turnover, or a key person leaves. We make sure that all the accounts that we can find are reset.
What the security vendors want you to write.
Looks like Lincolnshire outsourced IT early last year. Brilliant. http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2014/07/serco-will-move-to-lincoln-for-county-council-partnership/
Never saw this coming
Sharing your passwords on the Internet will always be a bad idea.
Good thing I kept that old shortwave antenna and radio handy.
So that is why I received my first in person visit
Got my first in person visit from a Dell marketing person this week. Thankfully I have studied the BOFH guide and was able to completely avoid contact.
Secret Courts, Secret Laws, and the cooperation of every TELCO in the country thanks to CALEA equal tyranny on a grand scale.
Have you tried turning it off and back on again? Or better yet to any US Government callers 'have you tried turning it off?"
It only takes one
One NSA friendly insider is all it takes to break into the vault. Instead of centralized systems that big government loves, we should rely on our own localized systems.
The federal government has become the enemy.
Obviously a suicide.
I don't like government control nor regulation but a standard is needed. The volume of waste due to all sorts of chargers that go in the bin is high.
I have a drawer full of obsolete chargers. My IT department a double box full per month to recycle. Too much waste for sure.
Good story. It is good to be reminded, and remind the users, on the M.O. of a thief. There are so many ways to intercept bank information and once in hand it is shockingly simple to get cash money.
I would guess that if this gang had crossed the international border the recovery would have been small. So good job to law enforcement and the IT team.
He went quietly.
Bring out your dead
How about those that are no longer with us? Lots of problems with re-issuing accounts.
I have a prediction
Pre-announcing that you are going to eliminate 90% of the people that run your systems? I predict that this will not end will for the puzzle palace.
Why are we throwing this away?
So we should take a mature operating system and heave it into the trash bin? XP has been poked, prodded, and patched. It is as secure as anything can be despite M$ backdoor for the federal government. So why are we throwing all this effort away?
How much do they owe ASCAP
So if they have a copy of every song and movie that has traversed the Internet I wonder how much ASCAP and RIAA should invoice?
Re: "A huge break in trust and confidence"
Secret laws, secret courts, and secret budgets equal tyranny. We need to charge and lock up the people that have taken our freedoms.
I had to live through the Carter administration embarrassment and the aftermath. Carter signed into Law FISA. Carter started the secret courts, secret laws, and greatly expanded the secret budget of the NSA.
Sprint runs the private network that is used to spy on all american voice and data communications. Read up on CALEA. I am surprised that the Feds would allow foreign ownership.
Re: Clever people misunderstanding a powerpoint presentation?
Nice work, NSA/GCHQ shill.
Re: Ive read the US constitution
So what is the penalty for violating the 4th amendment?
Re: Hello pot, this is kettle.
The NSA monitors the Brits. The GCHQ monitors the Yanks. It has been going on for some time didn't you hear?
Nothing to see here move along
No children were in danger, there was never a threat of radiation leakage, no need to evacuate the Internet...

This review is both timely and relevant to me. I just powered up a new 3k USD machine last night. I put 256G SSD as the OS. The 'G' drive is a 128G SSD with a 1TB Seagate Black drive connected to the Marvell chipset that came on the ASUS P8Z77-V deluxe.
It takes about 15 seconds to cold boot. The performance on Folding@home equals all the personal computing power of the previous 10 years running in 24 hours. Just amazing.
So far I did a standard format on the 1TB 'G' drive and two standard 1TB drives but have yet to compare the performance. My plan is to install large programs to the 'G' drive. This writeup sure saves me the time in research, so thank you. I don't think the Marvell chipset has the same performance as the Intel but it is surely better than a plain old spinning drive.
So there is an off switch for the Internet
You lost me at Cloud.
Yeah. What happens when one of the blowers fails and takes out the remainder of the row?
I wish the IT crowd had an Americanized version. I cannot get enough of the original series via Netflix.
Good thing that the economy has been generating some steam?
One small leap for mankind.
Thanks for sharing your misery. I am took a break from testing and patching to come here and give you an upvote.
