Re: "the SMB server bug is the result of a buffer overflow in Microsoft's code. "
To be fair, it could be 2008 SP3 ...

What about all those "corporate" systems still stuck on IE 7 due to in-house legacy web apps ?
Rogue One ...
I wonder if the killswitch domain name was put in by someone acting with the same motives as the creator of the Death Star put a vuln into that - ie we are not going to stop this thing going out, but let's embed some means of stopping it, covertly.
Turn off SMB v1 file-sharing ?
Why not !

Table size measure - Re: "...computers about the size of this table [snip]"
They should at least give the corresponding Ikea table name ...

What, no mention of Bjarne Stroustrup in the Computer Lab, typing away on a teletype on his work for Roger Needham's CAP machine ?
Or Dr. Martin Richards in his office there, having most of Cambridge using his implementable subset of CPL - BCPL which was later boosted into C by AT&T ?
Or Prof Wheeler, known to his students as "Prof Edsac" ....
The device would only spend a few hours in the target system before exiting on the other side ...

Since they arrived too early from the black hole, the first time, why did they not just go directly to the supernova star before it was too late, and drop it before it scorched Romulus ?
Don't you know that it's different for pies ?
However, if you are making Melton Mowbray pies or other foods with naming currently protected by EU rules, you need to think again ...
Wrong metaphot ?

Re: Registration in most countries already
I got a Blau.de SIM in Germany without showing passport ...
Jellybean counters ...

So - my phone uses Gingerbread - why withdraw the app that supports that, when to display numbers and text, even Doughnut would do !
We also get free healthcare - which is anathema to Americans ...

I've never used the Forth rail bridge - and yet my taxes are funding it !!
It's too late to stem the flow of comments from the Anti-BBC "stop these bastards jailing innocent people" brigade ... but it sounds like some John- Whittingdale-inspired scare story to me.
Does The Beeb already correlate Sky subscription fees with licence fees - or does Sky already do that for the BBC ?

"can backup documents" ?
Can back up documents ....
back up - verb

Apple's OS refuses to run on other hardware.
Other OSs don't mind running on compatible (ie x86) hardware
Android would be more secure if they allowed phones to update components.
