"...and managed to contain the attack"
I sense a massive amount of surprise in this statement.
Had to upvote you for this, as it reminded me of a client of mine who sent an email to me containing a user name and password in white text on a white background... you know, prying eyes and all. Don't want that info in the wrong hands!
Indeed, MacKeeper is at the very best sleezeware. I would personally categorize it as malware. I have had clients fall for the scare tactics employed by MacKeeper. It hijacks browsers and causes general havoc on Macs. And here is another very good reason not to touch it with a barge pole.
Security software my arse!
Buy it. Take it into the alley. Shoot it in the head. PLEASE!!!!!
"Staffers of the real estate mogul-turned-US presidential candidate “bungled the settings on their Amazon S3 server”, which according to MacKeeper security researcher Chris Vickery, the security researcher who discovered the recently-resolved flaw."
Still looking for the rest of this sentence. And is calling the guy from MacKeeper a "Security Researcher" some sort of joke?
That's okay. It is no longer their mandate to protect or serve the citizens of this great country. The new mandate is to protect those in power at all costs.
Go back to sleep, little one. They're taking care of these problems for you. When you wake up, there will be nothing to fear.
Indeed. Have an upvote. I am often asked to implement a cross-platform server for home users of Windows and Macintosh computers. Samba is an obvious choice and not very difficult to enable on a wide variety of NAS devices or operating systems. Sort of thick to say that this is unlikely to affect home users.
I wonder if the person who missed that redaction was also in charge of Hillary's mail server.
"Rubbish argument. Jefferson wasn't living with Islamic terrorism and cell phones."
Downvoted you for being an ignorant, anonymous coward. I guess the free and the brave have already left this country and scared weaklings are all that are left.
They did this with their USB keyboards and extenders back in the day. There was a divet in the physical interface that only allowed Apple products to be connected via an Apple extender. And we used to curse M$ for not following standards.
Have never been in an accident. Causing them might be another story.
Sounds a bit possessive to me. Are we the government's people or is the government the people's. Some one needs to get that part right before going any farther.
Looked like two beir for a sec and I thought it sounded like a good idea. Oh well the icon thought it sounded good too.
the criminal investigation of this breach is focusing on the lack of security and therefore may expose TalkTalk as the real culprit.
On one hand, I hate the hacking we all hear about every day. On the other, when hacks expose embarrassing security fuck ups made by people who should know better, I can only hope other corporate entities take notice.
Ultimately, hanging Dido out to dry in a criminal court for negligence is probably the only thing that might make them take notice. If Safe Harbor is illegal, then surely this level of technical stupidity should be criminal as well.
I would hate being in a flat spin. That would fucking s**k. However, in this instance, I am enjoying watching the ensuing spectacle. This IS why we go to airshiws, yes?
That thinks their mobile is safe gets what they deserve. I think we can all agree that it really does not matter what platform you use. iPhone or Android (or one of you 5 kids with Windows Phones) are all vulnerable. Never mind vulnerable to what. It is vulnerable to something and that's food for thought.
Mine's the one with tin foil body condom in the waist pocket.
"... The fact that a test update was inadvertently released to the mainstream deployment channel should definitely give Windows 10 users pause. "
I think the time for Windows 10 users to pause was some time ago. Pausing now only delays the inevitable.
This mass surveillance is not about protecting the people. It is about gaining power over them. I can only hope that the time is coming when those who have helped implement and support mass surveillance will be called out to answer for their crimes. I expect to see this one in the line up.
If every one with an Internet connection did the same?
Food for thought.
He can be my president and my pusher.
Grapes don't have nuts, silly.
Because the Director of National Intelligence is demented and sad, but social?
that f-ing sucks. Hate it when a hugely useful service is bought by doubious interests. Not too sure how I will replace that. Guess I will need to find a solution sooner rather than later. Fare thee well OpenDNS.
I always look sideways at this who use several syllables when one will do.
that the take away from a horrible crime is to stomp on the least significant aspect of it. We Americans are fools.
Regardless of how people feel about the shooting, the Confederate flag is not the issue. What fault of law allowed this mental defective to have a gun? Any one have good answer for that? Did the Confederate flag give him the gun? I think this is more typical American denial of the real problems in our society.
I believe in our right to bear arms. But we have a problem here in the U.S. of allowing the criminally insane to take part in that great Right. Maybe that's what we should be discussing instead of doing stupid, ignorant and virtually useless things.
I cannot imagine that removing the Confederate flag from the face of the nation will stop this from happening again. Maybe next time, the perpetrator will have a picture taken of him with the American flag. How will the dumb people I have to call my countrymen deal with that?
I can attest that the right of way for Verizon to install fiber was indeed blocked by landlords in NYC.
I know of one client of mine that was in a building on Lafayette St. in Soho that was eligible for FiOS, but it needed to be connected through a neighboring building that already had FiOS.
In the end, the neighboring building's landlord would not allow the work to proceed to connect my client's building.
In the end, cogent provided a miserable 10x10 business Ethernet connection for 1000 clams per month.
I don't like Verizon or the way they do business, but there is some validity to their "landlord" argument from my own experience. Could Verizon run an extra 100 yards of fiber around the block to connect the building? I really don't know. But I personally spoke with the landlord of the neighboring building, and I know they simply were not going to allow the right of way for Verizon to bring the connection over.
get the high powered green lasers out and shoot at The cockpit of any Cessna you can find.
That none of this applies to government agencies that do more damaging things to ones privacy than slinging an ad. Creepy double standard.
I am a U.S. citizen and I think the perpetrators were identified too easily. Considering the White House was under attack for a couple of weeks before they were made aware of the intrusion by an "ally". Seems pretty quick for them to come to a solid conclusion on this.
Others have said and I agree. This is going to be used to further restrict U.S. citizens' free speech and increase monitoring of U.S. citizens here in the land of the *cough* free.
I have little faith in our government's ability to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that NK has any hand in this. But the USG does not like NK, so we will just say it was them.
But it is probably our government that perpetrated this crime. I think we have a habit of victimizing our own citizens to justify our actions against the ones we don't like.
The whole thing seems rather convenient.
I like to soak some string in bacon grease before an afternoon at the river. Lay the soaked string in the water while swimming and return periodically to remove the crawfish doran evening boil. Often bring home 50 to 100 crawfish from the local pond for dinner.
The Texans I know won't eat em. They use crawfish for bait. Dummies.
I already hate the next President.
its a snuggle with a struggle.
Like whale carcasses?
... Or Facebook, or any such social media, you get what you deserve.
God only made so many perfect heads. The rest, he put hair on.
I have plenty of hair, in case you're wondering.

I love watching people (or companies) blow their wad on lawyers. Wish I was one of the lawyers for either of these bone heads. This would set many future generations of my family for life.
Of course, I'm just a pleb so I grabs me some popcorn and watches the show.
After Katrina, cellular service was almost non-existent. SMS was often the only successful method if communication for many days. Of course, keeping a mobile phone charged was another matter.
Like sending them to Guantanamo? Seems fitting. We need that oil! Oh... Wrong terrorists. My bad.
I can only watch the first two movies made. The rest made me shit my pants (and not in a good way). An Ancient Fear indeed. I will wait for its release on Netflix a month after it opens in theaters.
Shooting them in the crotch first negates the effort required to lift the gun and shoot them in the face.
I have my phone set to erase itself after the 10th failed auth attempt. Wish I could set it to three. In the event I am ever asked for the pass word, I will feign com
Umm. Yes. When you use your employer's mail server (or one that they own), you have no reasonable expectation of privacy. Not that any one any where using any mail server they do not personally own and run should expect any privacy whatsoever. Even then, it may not pan out that way.
Do they have video recorders in there so they can see you are actually shitting and not smoking crack?
Exactly. Leave NO witnesses.
With the exception of perhaps 10.5 (which supported both PPC and Intel Macs), my experience is that the even versions are worth working with. The odd versions usually suck. Just my opinion.
Have you ever seen them keep cats away? It has been my observation that most dogs love to eat cat shit. If you have dogs and never see cat shit in your yard, it is because your dogs are eating it.
I don't need 140 characters to say "f*ck you".
