The Register Hacked

cdoggyd What Pisses Me Off More... (192 comments)

...than the hack itself is the lack of cooperation from ISPs used by the hackers. They don't seem to care that illegal activity is taking place on their network. Whether the attack originates from their network or the network hosts the web page or DNS records, they ignore requests for action.

top Attackers Didn't Know What They Had

cdoggyd Re:How could the attackers... (183 comments)

Happens all the time. I've seen servers compromised with no attempt to harvest email addresses, ecommerce data, or passwords. Most of these "hackers" are script kiddies that use automated tools to locate and compromise servers. Once they're in, they don't really know what to do next to take full advantage of their access. Hooray for amateurs.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Other People's Email?

cdoggyd Re:Same Problem Here (619 comments)

To add insult to injury, I get tons of snail mail for other people too. My house used to be split into upstairs and downstairs apartments. Apparently, some shady characters used to live there. I've received overdue notices from hospitals, court summons, magazine subscriptions, and more. After owning the house for 3.5 years now, I'm still getting other peoples mail. I have no interest in tracking down the old occupants, and the post office doesn't seem to give a crap.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Other People's Email?

cdoggyd Same Problem Here (619 comments)

A lady in New York sent me pictures of her new purse.

The film crew for the movie The Fighter sent me info about the shooting schedule and on-set parking issues.

I receive flight and car rental reminders for guy in Phoenix.

I've even received bills from a pool company and electrician in North Carolina.

The worst was a California photographer that signed up with numerous photography companies at a trade show.

Sometimes it's it interesting, but mostly it sucks. I unsubscribe where possible and delete the rest.

Honeywell To Sell Miami-Dade Police a Surveillance Drone

cdoggyd Re:Surveillance (253 comments)

I see no privacy threat here. Do people really think they're going to waste this thing average people on the street? Doubt it. Miami is a huge port for drug smuggling. The drone will probably be used in the War on Drugs in Miami.

In Case of Death, Disclose Passwords

cdoggyd cdoggyd writes  |  more than 6 years ago

cdoggyd (1118901) writes "Last year, a man, who kept his address book strictly online, died without telling anyone his passwords. This caused problems for his daughter when she tried to notify his contacts. I remember discussion of a "death clock" system that required user interaction at specific intervals to prevent it from disclosing information like passwords. This would have solved the problem for Mr. Talcott's daughter. Does anyone have the actual name and additional information on this system?"
