Ask Slashdot: Is Running Mission-Critical Servers Without a Firewall Common?

g0bshiTe Obscurity (348 comments)

Security through obscurity is not secure at all.

Do you run your home computer without a firewall? Of course a firewall is useful keeping things out but they also let things out from within.

Windows 9 To Win Over Windows 7 Users, Disables Start Screen For Desktop

g0bshiTe Re:I won't upgrade. (681 comments)

Yep, I remember when 8 came out, my boss was all jazzed on it because his stock app was in a widget, I told him I thought the whole OS was crap and that they took a powerful desktop and made it into a useless phone app. He scoffed, ff to today, he hates Windows 8 cause he can't figure it out.

Massachusetts SWAT Teams Claim They're Private Corporations, Immune To Oversight

g0bshiTe Re:Shill (534 comments)

If nothing else turn them in to the EPA when they have a firefight. I'm sure there is something in EPA regs about lead pollution.

Massachusetts SWAT Teams Claim They're Private Corporations, Immune To Oversight

g0bshiTe Re:Shill (534 comments)

I think what most are missing here, is that let's say Microsoft burst in they're a corp right? Do they have the right, the authority to bust into a home? If not and it doesn't apply to MS then what pretense does that private SWAT team have? If the money comes from public money and they are run by police or contracted by the local gov, then private corp status is moot.

Blackwatch was a private security firm, they still had to answer for what they did.

Man Exhonerated in Child Porn Case

g0bshiTe g0bshiTe writes  |  more than 6 years ago

g0bshiTe writes "Security Focus has a write up about a Boston man had his company issued laptop taken away by the company when a spike in the billing of his internet usage to the box was noticed. Upon inspection child pornography was found in the temporary internet cache, and he was fired. When the incident was reported to authorities, the prosecution and the defense both agreed that the porn was a result of his employers "lack of security features" on the laptop. All charges were dropped.
Even though he was not responsible, how do you recover from this. Imagine losing your job, your family, respect, not to mention the little gaff from the Boston Herald. This is reporting at it s finest, this man's life could be ruined though he was guilty of nothing but having this story break on a slow news day."
