"He was charged, released on bail, and ordered to stay with his parents." These are penalties that we can live with!

Montreal youth blamed for massive phone-swapping scheme An 18-year-old man from Canada has been accused of stealing more than $50m in cryptocurrency using SIM-swapping attacks.

You might like to Think to Realise, such as can be All Future Content is Forever Scheduled to be Supplied for Delivery via Simple Enlightened Text Instructions for Creative Virtual Machinery/Government Operands. Or you could think to disagree and do constant battle to suffer defeat with oneself whilst media proves it so all around you.
:-) Think of it all as something of a Colossus and SMARTR NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive Bombe for the likes of a C to Caress. Although which one is the brightest and bravest of the three Cs of Cheltenham [GCHQ], C [MI6] and Cummings [Chief Special Adviser to Prime Minister Boris Johnson] and crazy enough to Succeed always Secretly in Stealthy Engagement, is something easily shared after today.
:-) It may be the case that a brace or all three or maybe even none rise to the challenge, and therefore fail spectacularly in the glare of a miserable demise. But lets just keep on looking on the bright side of things .... for a while. Give them a fair chance.
but +1 and a beer for the "three Cs" ..... Fruit and Nutcase

Yea, we've heard of it, I'm writing an app that will update itself every 15 seconds to guarantee security. Oh wait, it's been hacked too but I'm getting paid for every advert it shows when it's downloaded so it's not a problem for me. Don't laugh, this is the world we live in.
>You mean, apps that have true end-to-end encryption without any back door ?

>So, when it comes to soldiers, the Government wants proper encryption
Not sure if "the Government" wants it or even cares, however I do believe "the Military" are just doing their job in demanding proper encryption and device security...
This time, the DHS is warning medical providers to immediately patch a serious of vulnerability in General Electric's Carescape, ApexPro, and Clinical Information Center devices.
"Do we have any of this stuff?"
"Talk to Joe."
"Joe? He got laid off. Budget cuts. We outsourced everything."
