Speaking from the far off lands of the Netherlands, but also available in some other European countries, we have a wonderful system called iDeal, where a transaction is stated in the vendor's environment, transferred via a single use number negotiated between vendor and bank and then finishes the transaction in the bank's environment.
We also use IBAN, which can be used to transfer money to an account and identify the account, but cannot be used to charge the account without jumping through a bunch of hoops at which point a large part of the responsibility lies with the bank.
Obviously this is less attractive for Amazon and all, because they can't use their one click purchasing with these systems.
Have I got a great example of that one. The social security managing software that the company I work for makes has some very interesting 'features'. For example, the client in a dossier and his partner are stored in 2 separate fields in said dossier.
When we make a new dossier, we check the existing ones to see if there are any incompatible dossiers around and still active. If there are, we show an error. This check of course only checked for clients, not partners.
So you could give client A and partner B their social security check and then give client B and partner A their social security check as well, paying them twice because partner B didn't already have a dossier as far as the system was concerned.
It only took a year to get it accepted as a bug and fixed, because of course the user and their processes wouldn't allow that situation to happen in reality.
You're missing mental healthcare in that list, I'd argue that the access to guns is the least of the problems in that list, with education and mental healthcare taking the 2 top spots.
Of course, improving education will take time and even if it happens today, it'll be a decade or two before the results start to come around. Improving mental healthcare would produce results faster, but the US seems allergic to any kind of affordable healthcare and has a cultural problem that has only recently started to shift of people not seeking help.
So access to guns and restricting speech that incites others to violence and discrimination are the lie hanging fruit. For certain values there of.
No, you take the new password which hasn't been hashed and the original forgotten yet and compute a whole bunch of likely variations and run those against the hashed old password. If any of them match, the new password is too similar to the old one.
If you don't get any matches, create the hashed password and get rid of the plaintext.
The point seems to be that he didn't use the software nasty against anybody, others did that. He should have been prosecuted in the UK for making and selling this software nasty in the UK. If they can prove he sold it to people in the US, they might have jurisdiction the same way they would with an illegal arms dealer selling weapons into the US.
The answer to the first is no. If you point Libreoffice (or any other OpenOffice variant) to any folder synched by a cloud provider, including One Drive, it will happily take advantage of the useful part (file synch and duplication) without any of the downsides of use Office 365 Offline files.
Unless you're using Onedrive and Microsoft decides to help you by cleaning up some space on your hard drive for you, of course.
This would work wonders in any market where market forces are present, the cost of starting up a business is low and there aren't many regulatory hurdles to leap across.
The ISP market in the current framework in the US is not such a market, so your choices are to change the rules and enforce openness to get there, as many European countries have done or change the rules and enforce privacy rules, net neutrality and more.
Of course in the EU we kind of went both ways. Most EU countries require at least the phone networks to be open to competition regardless of who owns the actual lines, through local loop unbundling and other such schemes and most EU countries never allowed privacy abuse the way the US does in the first place. They certainly don't now that the GDPR has come into effect.
All we really need now is for the Irish to start hammering certain large US-based companies that continue to flagrantly violate the rules.
It is important to note of course that in the picture in question, the bulletproof vest wasn't getting tested.
They had tested the vests extensively and so were certain that they would work. The people they were trying to sell them to however were unconvinced, so they decided to have a very convincing demonstration.
You should probably do that the other way around. Install Linux on the machine and not have the Windows issues. Install a VM with Windows to do the few things you need Windows for.
As a bonus, that makes it trivially easy to prevent updates from downloading (and thus installing) unless you want them to.
I recall a 2010 article detailing that slurping WIFI data was EXACTLY what Google did. They did not try to decrypt or crack the encryption on anything, but they did store anything that came over the air unencrypted while their cars drove by.
It's gold. If you need it to be a doorstop, it's easy enough to deform a hollow sphere of gold to the point where it won't roll.
Mind you, it would in this case as already noted probably be 2 hemi-spheres, either of which would make a fine doorstop.
They have some valid uses for keeping hold of IP addresses, at least for a while, in terms of abuse prevention. But using them for marketing purposes would require explicit informed consent, lack of which should not prevent people from using the website.
As for the Cookie directive, they must inform you that they are using cookies. Consent is only required for cookies that are not required for basic functionality. So a cookie to track your activity in order to keep you logged in or in order to keep a shopping basket or some preferences does not require consent. A cookie to track you for marketing purposes does.
GDPR is the answer to your final paragraph. It works on the basis of very broadly specified private information and doesn't care how that information is collected, only if it is and under what legal basis.
The real question is how many people did the system flag as being wanted when they weren't? If the false positive rate is very low, then a high false negative rate can be forgiven in a system like this. If the false positive rate is high, it's worse than worthless.
Depends on how prone to configuration errors you want to be. The error-free way is to load the default first always, then check for a system specific configuration and load that over the top, then check for a user specific configuration and load that.
That way, anything that wasn't specifically modified by the system or user configurations will use the default and the user only has to configure those things he cares about.
Alternatively, you load the user configuration if it exists, the system configuration is the user configuration doesn't exist and a system one does and the default only if neither of the previous exists.
Shared L2 cache? Sure. Not L1 cache and certainly not the FPU. Both are vital to performance. 16kb of dedicated L1 cache per core is stupidly small.
Memory controllers vary a little more, but can generally be shared across multiple cores without much of a performance hit. More importantly, they have been shared since the dawn of the multi-core CPU era.
This lawsuit, if it goes to jury trial, is going to have to establish the basic per-core features that need to be present on a CPU and in doing so, will probably look at competing CPU designs of that time to decide that.
If the cookies are required for website functionality rather than tracking, they're still required by the Cookie law to notify you about them but they're not required by GDPR to give you any choice in the matter. It is entirely possible that they're still doing bad things but it's not necessarily so.
The problem is that is not just getting 1 or 2 degrees warmer, is getting 5 to 10 degrees warmer and 3 to 7 degrees colder. The maximum, minimum and the variance there in is changing far more than the average increase suggests.
And it's that variability that is liable to kill a lot of got climate species.
Major Euro ISPs absolutely are doing basic monitoring of their e-mail services to protect against them being used for spam. Major Euro ISPs are not doing monitoring of port 25 in general because it's not required. If a specific customer of an ISP is spamming Comcast, Comcast should block that IP and contact the ISP's abuse department.
I don't know about this particular case, but in other cases it's been the DAB+ radio (max range for a hack of a few dozen km, provided a legal transmitter power is used) that was responsible for the initial hole.
How about manufacturers simply go about not putting important vehicle functions like engine, brake and lock controls on the same physical network as things that have no business interacting with those controls, like radios, heaters, Bluetooth handsfree phone systems, etc.
You can no longer set your user storage folders to any other drive. Microsoft decided it was a bad idea to let users do that after one of their patches broke any machines with the user storage folder on a different partition.
You can change where programs install, but you can't change the default /program file/ directory (any more). AFAIK you can still move the paging and hibernation files. For now.
And of course, all of these were 'advanced user options' rather than 'shit we should check for by default'.
