Not via a back door, surely?
Surely those State Level Bad Actors didn't take advantage of a back door in a system somewhere? That would be ironic.

I don't password share and I knew it was inevitable that I'd have to switch 2FA on at some time, but I was mightily disappointed that Nest only allow a code via SMS. No one-time password option like Google offers?! Hopefully the crims will not try and get my phone SIM reset...
I like (not love) Nest when it works, but they seemed to have seriously lost the plot when it comes to security.
I have to mention this.. Hitchhiking Robot Is Decapitated And Left In A Ditch After Just Two Weeks
quickly build up their numbers by hiring and training up young people from the large pool straight out of university
Yes, but then the problem is retaining them! Young starters (I was one once) tend to job-hop to get experience both in technologies and different companies.
£21K ? They can pick up that in loose change from Zucks back pocket.. and they seriously need 30 days to pay?
The amount also sounds like an amount that was arbitrarily set by some Civil Service numpty who figured that it would caused SMEs some pain. Shame they never thought long-term.
... that the Secret Government Solution is to surround all our airports with blimps shaped like Chris Grayling, and held in place by cables, as per WW2. They'll be inflated with an endless supply of high-tech Parliament-generated hot air and Grayling's permanent fixed maniacal
grimace grin will serve to scare away trespassers, at no extra cost.
No problem - Fake moon: Could China really light up the night sky
2019 - Chinese mission lands on the Dark Side of the Moon - High-fives all round etc
2020 - China launches 3 more missions to establish small colony for "scientific research"
2022 - China announces scientific discovery of vast precious metal mineral seams and claims squatters rights to Dark Side of the Moon. International outcry and condemnation follows. China ignores the problem and sets up first Lunar mines.
2023 - US opens first Lunar McDonalds
My Europe-based domain registrar just relied to my question:
There should be no issue with your postal address in the UK.
Considering that the only registry "restriction" is a demonstrable connection with Spain.
The connection can be:
- offer services
- have a historical, cultural interest in Spain
- have the webpage translated in Spanish
- in case of e-commerce: the possibility to buy from Spain
We do not foresee any issues with you, as a UK person/company, continuing to own & register .es domains.
In my case, I have cultural interest in Spain - I drink a lot of their red wine..
Wot? C'mon now.. you can't tell me that an open public space like that has one or several fire extinguishers casually dotted around the place? If that was Britain.. something something tealeaf ..
I couldn't tell if that was just a water bottle in the picture though
Dick said earlier this year that she didn't think it would result in lots of arrests
No, but it'll collect a helluva lot of useful facial data for various state-sponsored AI systems to practice on, so imagine if they compared the images with say the Passport Office database, or maybe TFL cameras? If Joe Bloggs was a regular tube user and they captured his image via one of these vans they could easily judge the accuracy.
Neither does the town in question sound as if it is full of people who have chosen to live off grid. Internet access is becoming one of life's essentials as much as it pains me to say that
It's a chicken and egg situation. If there was fast broadband out there, it could help regenerate the community by incentivising people to work there. The housing would be cheaper in that area so young starter families working in tech-heavy companies might just want to move out of the expensive but not-too-distant cities.
millions of pictures of dogs at all different angles before it can recognise a dog with reasonable accuracy. A baby only has to be shown a dog once or twice and it knows "dog"
Unfortunately I only seem to get quizzed about buses, store fronts, traffic lights, "crosswalks" and fire hydrants whenever I have to prove I'm not a robot. I assume they'll get around to "people", "dogs" and "babies" at some stage - until then, stay off the streets!
If we can assume the infrastructure of the Internet is ok (for now), we can fall back on TOR. What I foresee though is an alternative Internet which doesn't use the existing Internet and would be Mesh-based, probably running on numerous 4/5/nG cells. Set up a few in your neighbourhood and get some real community going. Use decentralisation and help build the Fediverse. Let the existing Internet fester in its current form and let the rest of use the Other Internet.
