US Congress mulls first 'hack back' revenge law. And yup, you can guess what it'll let people do

Wolfclaw

Should be good for laugh, US says it's OK for a US company to hacks EU computer, illegal in EU, who gets prosecuted, the dude who did it, the boss that ordered it, CEO and would they ever get extradited?

EU geezer hacks back against a US company, that wrongly hacks him, illegal in EU but justified in the US, oh but wait, US company goes crying to FBI and asks for help ... oh what a can of worms !

Ex-Harrods IT man cleared of stealing company issued laptop

Wolfclaw

The illegal part was trying to access the laptop, when obviously his network access was removed.

Theft charge was a dodgy one, as they would have to prove he had no entention of returning the laptop at any time.

He should have returned it to Harrods IT and just nicely ask if somebody could login and then delete his personal information, save it to a USB or email it.

Re: Empty Threats

Is doing such a thing legal, surely that would come down to work place victimisations or discrimination ?

Wolfclaw

Just do it, the knob heads that haven't implemented the upgrade will soon face the wrath of customers going offline, unless your a VM customer and probably couldn't tell the difference.

Wonder why Congress doesn't clamp down on its gung-ho spies? Well, wonder no more

Wolfclaw

The US should just scrap the senate and let the <insert 3 letter acronyms> run the country, if they aren't already, through dodgy deals and knowing what is each senators skeleton closet !

Why don't we just come out and say it, the FCC has been sold by Trump and bought by the Megacorps, who practically now write the FCC guidelines !

Indian call centre scammers are targeting BT customers

Wolfclaw

What do you expect when you outsource to India to save a money, no real action is ever taken against the scammers by local authorities and your customers are the ones that suffer.

UK industry mouthpiece wants 'near-universal' broadband speeds of 30Mbps by 2020

Wolfclaw

Shame how 10mbps is a struggle for the country and for those that can get higher, unstable connections, price increases, latency issues, over subscription, lack of investment ... this can go on and nothing will improve unless OFCOM force BT, VM and the smaller players to act !

Firmware update blunder bricks hundreds of home 'smart' locks

Wolfclaw

One of the main problems of IOT remote management, they make a change that screws up and your left in the lurch. Surely a device like this should have an update USB port for emergency resets using the appropriate physical key and passcode as authentication ?

Canadian ISPs do not Canuck around: Bloke accused of piracy grilled in his home for hours

Wolfclaw

Question has to be asked, who is the real criminal, Lackman, or big business who basically have broken so many rules and laws, but will no doubt get away with it, due to Government and legal system being in their back pockets. Hope he wins his case and sues them for millions !

Fox News fabricated faux news with Donald Trump, lawsuit claims

Wolfclaw

Anything coming out of Fox, I would check, check again, triple check and then put in the spam bin, just to be on the safe side. Murdoch, his family and gang of corporate henchmen, are not fit to run a news empire and no way should be allowed any control of Sky !

Wolfclaw

Remember the days when a web browser showed content, at respectable speeds, with killing your CPU or eating up memory and didn't try to do everything. Oh how I long for Netscape Navigator :(

U.S business practices, hike the prices but provide piss poor product and services and don't ask for OFCOM to do anything, toothless regulator that spends too much time sleeping in the same bed as telco's.

FAIL

Speed is important, but a mute point if your constantly bandwidth capped, video is buffered, latency is so bad gaming is impossible and your area is so oversubscribed that you consider 4G an acceptable upgrade, yes VM I'm talking about you !!

Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook blow massive amounts lobbying Trump administration

Oh come on, do you really believe slime ball Murdoch would obey an ICO ruling if he though he could get away with it. I would rather believe a promise from Hitler before anything from that vermin family and company !

ICO seizes phones and computers in nuisance call scam raids

Wolfclaw

Fines are only a deterrent if the money can be claimed from the owners even if the go in to administration and before the can start back up under a different name, of course this doesn't work when it's from an Indian call centre, employing underpaid mindless droids !

UK PM May's response to London terror attack: Time to 'regulate' internet companies

Wolfclaw

May talking out of her backside, yes, the internet has a bunch of nutters spewing out hate, but that has been going on for decades. Terrorist attacks is no excuse for attempting a "1984" and stomping on peoples rights to an internet uncensored and regulated by people who obviously have no clue on how technology works, if they did, how come every big GOV tech project is one expensive complete cockup after another ???

While Microsoft griped about NSA exploit stockpiles, it stockpiled patches: Friday's WinXP fix was built in February

Wolfclaw

No Excuses !!

Any Government agency running Windows XP, should be forced to disconnect said PC from networks or upgraded. No exclusions, or sad stories of being poor. They have plenty of cash to waste and if they find one on the network, Execs get a big personal fine !
