Espionage Campaign Targets Corporate Executives Traveling Abroad

VIPERsssss Re:marketing (101 comments)

Hah, you'd be surprised. "All that encryption stuff just gets in my way. I'm an important person. Just make it work."

Then you have to clean off all the shit from their laptop when they get back. Or worse, they copied their files to their personal laptop and then took that because it's "easier."

Ask Slashdot: In What Other Occupations Are IT Skills and Background Useful?

Thief Debuts To Mediocre Reviews

VIPERsssss Watching my son play it on PS4, I like it. (110 comments)
