What do you expect if you buy a smartphone, off ebay, at a price less than the cost of a new screen on a recently-issued Samsung?

...an error rate of 0.08% doesn't seem at all bad. I think the issue lies with this statement:
"Some of these mismatched records date back to 2008"...
Surely the chance of actual election results NOT being hacked is close to zero...
These DPA fines are just a rounding error for the companies involved. Complete joke. The sooner GDPR demonstrates a fine up to the alleged "4% of revenue" the better, and then these cowboys might start behaving themselves.
But otherwise, all ok?
Is this new? - I thought there was some stuff in January of these flaws.
Cue the launch of a new AI-powered threat detection product...
Re: 1st rule of an IT system...
Or their cerebrum
All androids look the same to me...
When is "pre-crime" due to be unveiled? Problem solved.
'Co-operation with police'
Matching on name & gender, and then automatically updating a record? Wtf is this, seriously.
Is that when we don't need the humans anymore?
No press is bad press, especially when you have a live sale...
'Long term roadmap' aka the list of things we will never do because by the time we find money for it the next genius would have taken over with a new strategic platform idea.
I'm not sure using a .ru email qualifies as 'trying to imitate a Russian hacker'.
Killing the patient
The way to prevent the inappropriate use of the data is to stop using it inappropriately; not, to stop the data being collected in the first place. That is backwards.
I pretend to be incredibly interested and put them on hold permanently whilst I "go get my bank details". Longest I think someone ever held on for is around 30 minutes.
Must. Not. Google...
Finally, the great space turd mystery of 1969 has been solved
Literally a lorry load of data. Mind. Blown.
I like this guy
"London cops will not use controversial and inaccurate facial recognition..."
No, but they'll roll out the uncontroversial accurate version, right?
Or the iris scanners they now have to supersede the facial scanners?
Language is a funny thing.
So pre-2014 permissions were sought and granted for TP apps to access my and my friends' data. The terms were updated in 2014, for obvious reasons, but not retrospectively applied?! So in theory I have a whole load of TP apps, all with various permissions based on when I was asked. This doesn't feel like transparency in any adult sense.
This might have something to do with it...
"In March 2017, ZTE was fined a total of US$1.19 billion by the U.S. Department of Commerce for exporting U.S. technology to Iran and North Korea in violation of sanctions."
We're going to need a bigger boat.
So the list included witnesses and complainants, and the purpose is not thought to be the theft of personal information? Well I'm sure a subscription to credit agencies will be a comfort to those exposed.
You forgot that an MPs PC got hacked and a history of porn browsing was uploaded, much like the John McAfee incident I suspect.
There is, without any question, more to this story than is being told...
The guy was doing some strange stuff in simulators prior to the disappearance, and despite us being able to view a pimple on the nose of anyone on the planet via satellites, nobody knows what happened or where it is? Come on.
The idea that since 9/11 we're not tracking the precise location of every aircraft everywhere, is just not credible.
Re: Security Researchers
CyberArk appear to be a pretty big deal in the field, and I'm sure MS are not at all motivated to underplay the severity of a vulnerability in their flagship protection software...
Should have used windows
thanks to Tony Blair bending over
I would love to see the evidence relied upon to blame a backward retrograde nation, barely capable of wiping their own arses. So what could a well funded, capable nation achieve in terms of havoc if this is what we can expect from North Korea? It's just not credible; sorry.
Re: The end

What was being said that required it to be taken down?
"potential jeopardy to the very fundamental underpinnings of our political system"
You cannot, for years, silently benefit from a system that allows the purchasing of power for money and then start throwing your toys out of the pram when the next investor takes over because you don't like the colour of their money.
Don't get me wrong, I think trump is a dangerous tool, but let's have a conversation about the game and not the player.
Tech Support: "Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in again"
If IBM already owns the asset, then using it would be cheapest option.
Also suggesting that a CEO should limit his/her schedule by the same measures simply because it might make other employees feel better, is lefty nonsense.
How about just take it from tax in the first place, and save the half-a-billion fee for Capita to administer a separate scheme?
"my understanding was that the changes were to dissuade the one man behind a limited company set up"
Correct. Before I took a permanent job recently I was about to make my "one man behind my limited company set up" take on an extra employee, which I was led to believe would see me around the problem.
China were only allowed to buy their previous carrier from the Ukraine under the promise of turning it into a floating casino.
What would we do without UK.gov
Why does a bomb disguised as a laptop be safer in the baggage hold than cabin?
...because it can't be used to open the cockpit door.
Reading this made me want to break something.
Have a downvote.
Re: Isn't it their job?
I guess there's a difference, albeit subtle, between security services monitoring communications to ensure elections are fought fairly without external influence, and, monitoring on behalf of a political opponent to give an advantage.
