FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

FatdogHaiku Re:Rich like the Twinkie Filling (353 comments)

I wasn't saying that this particular person (a lawyer, go figure) did not deserve to be jailed for contempt. I said there is no sentence, and no trial. It's a case of comply or rot. If you forgot how to decrypt a file that the judge ordered decrypted, or you claimed the file was corrupted and therefor lost forever, you could well be in the same boat as that guy... 14 years without a trial or (allegedly) a way to remedy the situation...

"Big Bang Signal" Could All Be Dust

FatdogHaiku Re:Dust? (133 comments)

So is the Universe coming, or going?

Coming from what?
Going to what?
Well, I don't care as long as my signal is good for the two new Big Bang Theory episodes tonight!

And if existence does end I hope the next one is not a re-run... I'm tired of re-runs...

Proposed Law Would Limit US Search Warrants For Data Stored Abroad

FatdogHaiku Re:barn door (131 comments)

The barn is on fire, the door is open, but the horses aren't fleeing.

Don't worry. It's just a matter of time until the farmer sees the need for action and closes the door.

Right now he's busy mixing a 55 gallon drum of barbeque sauce...

Hacked India Microsoft site stored user data as plain text

FatdogHaiku FatdogHaiku writes  |  more than 2 years ago

FatdogHaiku writes "Microsoft Store India site has been compromised by EvilShadow, a Chinese group yesterday. The hackers defaced the site and linked their blog along with email id.

Microsoft took this situation very seriously and put the site down for now, the hackers placed a picture of the Guy Fawkes mask that is often used by Anonymous hacker group who are known for their high profile hacking activities.

Many sources claim that hackers had access to the database and a list of usernames and passwords have been released. But the shame is that Microsoft saved user accounts password in plain text format.

Today Microsoft has sent email to users, requesting to change their passwords immediately."

Service Pack or Die

FatdogHaiku FatdogHaiku writes  |  more than 4 years ago

FatdogHaiku (978357) writes "Well, it's time to belly up to the service pack bar or kiss your security updates goodbye. Microsoft is telling visitors that support for Windows Vista without any service packs will end on April 13, 2010. Support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on July 13, 2010. I find it interesting that this message was delivered to a Win 7 box making an XP command line reference inquiry."

New, Improved BSOD

FatdogHaiku (978357) writes "Software firm Prevx says that millions of Windows users may be affected by a "Black Screen of Death" issue that may have multiple causes. A spokesperson for Microsoft has stated that this did "not match any known issues". Same old song with a new color scheme? PCWorld has more details of the scope and nature of the problem."
