Computer Associates Offers Warranties

sdirrim Lets you retrieve files? (82 comments)

So, what this seems like is it lets you connect to your stolen computer to retrieve the files. A sort of hidden, unprotected FTP server on your computer. Couldn't this possibly be used by a hacker to steal your files remotely? How does the computer know it has been stolen, and how does it identify the rightful user? And how can you ensure that someone doesn't get your files before you do?

Seems like a potentially dangerous utility, even worse than the Sony rootkit.

sdirrim writes "Surgeons and scientists alike have made history, as this week doctors successfully completed the first-ever zero-gravity surgery. The operation, a removal of a benign cyst, was performed on Philippe Sanchot, 46. An avid bungee-jumper, he was chosen for this experimental surgery for his tolerance to gravity shifts. The zero-gravity effect was created by the "Vomit Comet", a plane that flies high into the atmosphere and then dives towards the ground. Although this operation is a success, scientists say that more complex surgery will have to wait for some time."

I'm Back! Woo hoo. I'm the only one who cares.

sdirrim sdirrim writes  |  more than 8 years ago One more submission, one more rejection. C'est la vie. Honestly, why don't they care that Bolton said that the "use of force is definitely out there" against Iran? We could have a frickin nuclear holocaust here!

By the way, how can a comment get replied to 16 times before it gets moderated?
