Yes, I've noticed that every time I change my default search engine to DuckDuckGo or Qwant, it's not long before I revert to Google. Old habits die hard I guess, and I always have that uncomfortable feeling that i'm missing some results, so I switch back to Google just to compare and don't bother to change back.
Maybe next time I'll try harder (famous last words).
it's way over the heads of "normal" users
I tend to disagree. Yes, it's highly configurable and extendable, and has advanced features that require some RTFM, but for a standard user all it takes is a few clicks to create a new entry and generate a unique secure password that will be accepted by most sites, which is all they need.
and the data breach would have occurred just one month before the change? Sounds more likely to me that it could have happened anytime up to December 2014.
Also, moving to a "more secure algorithm for storing passwords", probably means the previous algorithm was MD5 hash, so all leaked passwords have been pwned for 4 years.
IB are more and more risk averse. They now prefer the safe and steady revenue streams of sales and arbitrage to the risks of trading for their own. Plus the regulatory constraints make it more and more costly to perform their activities. A lot of IB have been shutting down or reducing their prop trading activities in the last years.
Sure, but I'm not convinced this is the main obstable to switching mobile providers as the article suggests. Number portability could be a blocking point, although from personal experience I found it to work quite well (PAC number easy to obtain, switch scheduled within a few days, happens on the given date with minor loss of service), but YMMV.
Not if done by your operator, that's the initial business model for this phone and why it's locked to a provider. This was explained in the previous article when Verizon launched it in the US:
Inside is a non-removable nano SIM that mirrors your primary SIM, much like an eSIM-enabled Apple Watch mirrors your iPhone.
But from this article it sounds that Vodafone is not offering this feature yet.
The 72 hours are to notify the supervisory authority (ICO), and it's not actually a 'must', but a 'where feasible'. On this occasion, the incident was discovered on Friday 5th and notified to the ICO on Tuesday 9th, so a bit more than 72 hours but this could be justified by the time to check if the bug had actually been exploited.
For communications to the individuals, it's 'without undue delay'.
Hardly surprising, is it? If you receive such an email, what are you most likely to do?
a) Pay the ransom
b) a), but first, circulate a basket to put your colleagues to contribution
c) Forward to your Security team just in case
d) Evacuate the building
e) Continue as if nothing had happened and post snarky comments on El Reg
They need full volume because these days they hold the mic to their ears...
The Ecole Normale Supérieure is actually the golden highway for future politicians and high-level functionaries.
Its primary mission still is to train high-level academics (teachers, researchers), hence the large number of Nobel Prize recipients for the science-oriented ENS. The training of high-level civil servants is more recent.
Ecole Normale just used to be a generic name for the institutions in charge of forming teachers.
From the WP article:
Trump sent hundreds of emails last year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules [...]
she often discussed or relayed official White House business using a private email account.[...]
Trump used her personal account to discuss government policies and official business fewer than 100 times — often replying to other administration officials who contacted her through her private email, according to people familiar with the review.
Another category of less-substantive emails may have also violated the records law: hundreds of messages related to her official work schedule and travel details that she sent herself and personal assistants who cared for her children and house,[...]
Trump continued to occasionally use her personal email in her official capacity [...]
Trump had used her personal email for official business far more frequently than known, according to people familiar with the administration’s review.[...] “She was the worst offender in the White House,”
That's true for O365 webmail (and can be changed in a single click). In Outlook the Reply and Reply-All buttons are the same size, Ctrl-R is just Reply, you need Ctrl-Shift-R for Reply-All.
Actually 95% or so of my replies are Reply-All, so I wouldn't mind it being the default. I just happen to know when I'd better do a simple Reply and when I should put recipients in Bcc (rarely, as part of my job).
But sure, let's blame the tool rather than the users who still can't grasp a few simple concepts 20+ years after the email entered our daily lives.
If sending to more than three people (or more than 1 domain) then any decent client should default to BCC
In my organization we frequently have triparty exchanges where everyone could contribute. BCC-ing everyone would just make it impossible for people to know who they need to reply to. But I agree there should be a soft or hard cap on the number of recipients, above 10 you can be almost sure that some people don't belong in a discussion.
