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 !

Coppers 'persistently' breach data protection laws with police tech

Holmes

Criminal copper who would have believed it. Big fines for any Force found to be in breach, the sack and prison time for the coppers. No cover-ups or retirement due any old reason to avoid prosecution !

US-Europe Privacy Shield not worth the paper it's printed on – civil liberties groups

Wolfclaw

Once we BREXIT, EU privacy laws will be quietly killed and GCHQ/NSA and other friendly spooks will have unlimited free access to UK comms and I bet any EU comms that can be sniffed on !

Want to come to the US? Be prepared to hand over your passwords if you're on Trump's hit list

Wolfclaw

If this gets enforced, then EU countries should do the same for US visitors, should make interesting reading for EU vetting agencies going through Trumps and other US elite bank accounts and social media !

UK ISPs may be handed cock-blocking powers

Wolfclaw

Sure go ahead, also make sure that IP's of public organisations are supplied and then when tracked back to access dates/times and the active logins from that machine are published, so we know which MP is exercising when they should be working !

DRIPA Needs An Overhaul

Well if the Court of Appeal get the final say, they will rubber stamp it for the spooks. Not like we are trying to deport a terrorist, rapist or radical nutcase or anything and they will bend over backwards to block this if a cat is involved !

How on earth do Microsoft think they are going to have business confidence for Windows as a service, when they constantly are borking things. I want to know which idiot in the Server 2016 development team thought it would be a great idea to have enforced restarts !

US-CERT's top tip: Hack your crap Netgear router before miscreants arrive

Wolfclaw

Should be made compulsory for all consumer products that have an internet connection to go through a paid security audit to ensure nothing as stupid as this can happen. Manufacturers will soon get their act together when a product fails and they have to pay again to get verified.

Give BAE a kicking and flog off new UK warships, says review

Wolfclaw

So what happens when they hack a system outside US, will this not breach those laws and the FBI agent who did the hacking should be extradited and imprisoned, oh hang on, forgot, US Of Ass Clowns can do anything they like. US security services becoming more and more like the Gestapo, Stasi and KGB of old, with a little help from corrupt and inept politicians !
