If governments tried to do this.. there would be riots in the streets.

'This collaboration is absolutely critical going forward'... One positive thing about Meltdown CPU hole? At least it put aside tech rivalries...


They did fuck all for 2 years, down to the wire of the last week and then it got leaked.

Huawei's horror show 2019 continues as Taiwanese research institute joins banhammer club


its part of a long term plan.

Winnie already said he wants to turn the "private" companies back into Government run entities , similar to the old style IE companies of decades past.

So basically you would have a shed load of governments that used HW tech & then next thing you know the company is being run by the China government, removing the tech could then take a decade.

This is exactly the same shit as we had when our company opened a factory & was told we had to fit a government "bridge" BEHIND our firewall so the local "government" departments could "resolve" internal & external internet connections.

Unless you work in China yo would not believe the shit that goes on...

decline a security visit and you get shut down....

open you mouth about what goes on & you get shut down.

Nobody in China wants Apple's eye-wateringly priced iPhones, sighs CEO Tim Cook


He has sat on his ass for nearly a decade leaching of prior tech and now it's a surprise?

So why the fuck is he being paid big money then... if he did not "see this coming"?

Yep just run the shit into the ground... stick an LCD display for function keys , close the hardware, stop integration work with NVIDIA and call it innovation.

Er no.......

This will basically BREAK all VMware products, you know all the WINE & x86 VM programs currently running on OSX.

Re: What a lot of FUD

Clearly you have little understanding of the problem.

If you ever get the chance to take the top of a "Real" computer......... good luck on identifying even half of the components without highly specific engineering drawings.


You only have to look at poor FDTI and their range of RS232 chips.

Tell me none of those went into servers and other equipment.

Facebook: Up to 90 million addicts' accounts slurped by hackers, no thanks to crappy code

Trump's axing of cyber czar role has left gaping holes in US defence


Clearly he was correct.

That scary old system with 'do not touch' on it? Your boss very much wants you to touch it. Now what do you do?


What a load of bollox........ chances are those AWS people have NEVER seen an application written with dead software on an out of date box, with programs that auto delete at the end of the run (so they don't double process data), but re-copy and configure from a backup store and rely on the specific ip address of other machines not moving on subnets which was installed & provisioned by fuckwhits dacades ago.

If I look at anything hard enough in this world , i will find some sort of "property", but that does not mean it was put here for that purpose.

You want how much?! Israel opts not to renew its Office 365 vows


Re: £££££££££££

It's not "users" it is weak willed management.

Re: Plot twist? What plot twist?

No it's not

In Hk & China it is REALLY REALLY common.

Re: Logic bombs

Been there ...... done that.

A system admin who had scripts in an MSql database to erase tables several months after he left.

Stupid company let him back in the building for a meeting , and he promptly erased all their backups over multiple sites.


Re: Logic bombs are unprofessional

At one place i instigated a common account for ALL IT related items.

So that IT staff leaving, would not cause such problems.

After leaving due to poor treatment, I noticed that the DNS is back under staff names.

Once staff who left... his DNS payment runs out in about 2 weeks for multiple domains of a major international company.

So..... it's gonna be an interesting August for one company.....

Sen. Ron Wyden: Adobe Flash is doomed, why is Uncle Sam still using it?


VMware is using it for all the front end in their enterprise products, no sign of them even starting to scrap it off.

You have to see the irony of a company using Flash in their flagship product, that requires the user to login as admin and them manage corporate infrastructure as admin from within a flash front end

Do these ass clowns actually think those big blocks of copper used in desktops are just for decoration?

How the fuck does a portable prototype get all thru development without it being detected

I really love the way your hands close round the objects and just manage to hold the 3D shapes, it's like they are really there....

Go on try it.. see how long you can hold your hand is a grasping position and use your trigger finger.

Two-factor auth totally locks down Office 365? You may want to check all your services...


Tell you how fucking stupid MS is.....

We obtained our licenses using a .net domain name for a .com domain.

4 years later despite MULTIPLE attempts to stop them sending admin data to the .net domain, they STILL do it.

We delete the admin@nxxx.net and a week later they put it back.

Heatwave shmeatwave: Brit IT departments cool their racks – explicit pics


Clearly some of these "tech" people are complete fucking morons.

Those boxes have Twin mains powered fans in the top or the ability to mount them.

And yet they mount the box almost flush to the ceiling.

We run kit in factories in China same box fronts closed IN FACTORY PRODUCTION LINES

>40deg ambient

>95% humidity.

and yet we don't need to engage in this sort of fuck feast.

Mind you...... we do ensure that they are checked weekly for dust blockages and that they all have functioning fans.

Absolutely... fabless: Marvell swallows a large dose of Cavium


It's bad.....

The market is loosing diversity just when it is needed, plus there is the added danger of China companies snapping up all this tech and competitors not being in place to support the market.

Hands up if you didn't lose data in the Typeform breach


Re: Ocean Protocol: This is what writing in lawyered-corporateeze gets you I guess:


Seems that a massive amount of confidential data was gained

" Information that the hackers downloaded includes email, birthdate, place of birth, ID number, nationality, wallet address, and for our US participants, SSN."

but they are "sorry" so I guess that makes it ok then........

Euro bank regulator: Don't follow the crowd. Stay off the cloud


Even microsoft is bumming out its cloud infrastructure to 3rd parties.

The thought that banks are running all that info thru 3rd party systems , really is not a restful thought.

What does it take for an OpenAI bot to best Dota 2 heroes? 128,000 CPU cores, 256 Nvidia GPUs


you can bet that if the machine was not given access to see the whole map, then the results would be so abysmal it would be the end of their funding.

India tells its banks to get Windows XP off ATMs – in 2019!


Re: Question?

Same here in Hk in one of the big banks and win 7

but the service guy got really annoyed i was watching him.

I told him it was a public space and he could go fuck himself.... then the bank security turned up.

time to leave......

Don't panic, but your baby monitor can be hacked into a spycam


Re: More insecure IoT, now more creepy!

Over in HK & China it works like this:

You get hired.

You know almost fuck all about programming, but you are good at talking.

you get onto git hub or stack overflow for C&P your code, but most important you throw up a few screens for the MD to look at and you bullshit.

most of these guys would not know security if it bit them on the ass, i do work for a company where thier "programmer" built a whole business system that is just screens, no code written just "under construction" but it does have great graphics.

Language handling is done by having (screen * number of languages) and most of the code so far is just patch on patch on patch.

But MD's don't want to know, becasue they see the money going out to pay you.. but don't see the results... unlike the over paid guy who can throw up a screen in 30 min.

if a security guy does his job , then there is "nothing to see"

How do you justify a salary if there are no "measurable results"?

Sir, you've been using Kaspersky Lab antivirus. Please come with us, sir

Former FBI boss Comey used private email for official business – DoJ


And they are continually crying about being hacked by Russia & China..

You would think they would have an off the shelf box or suitcase... that could be wired directly into a home circuit to secure all digital comms .

Worst. Birthday. Ever. IPv6's party falls flat


The issue is the ISP's

many still do NOT supply IPv6 for the last /first leg of the journey.

Microsoft commits: We're buying GitHub for $7.5 beeeeeeellion


They are not after github

They are after all the personal data and interrelations, plus the business info of who they can sell their shit to.

Then they will gradually leverage thier own personnel into top opensource projects, get control of the direction and use the hundreds of thousands of contributors as slave labour.

They set the direction .... You do the work.

Then you can bet there will be the EULA that will be changed over time.

They made it clear in 2010 they WANT linux or they want it DEAD. that was why they probably funded SCO against IBM

Chinese president Xi seeks innovation independence



Physics..... might well stop you.

But the real issue is no one is trying to stop you do anything other than continually stealing technology you don't contribute to.


This after a China national hacked into a US robotics company via Macao

The HK government refused the US deportation order.

In other news , HK complains very strongly about the US holding a HK/China national and refusing to grant him bail.

Yes... the sordid little webs we all weave.....
