You're so old you forgot a digit. It's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RS-232. Not 252.

GIGO (Garbage In(side)? Garbage Out.
The data used as evidence that
"women employed in certain roles being paid less than men in other roles"
came from a system that was broken.
So for all we know, it wasn't the case? Same as https://www.theregister.com/2023/10/12/excel_anesthetist_recruitment_blunder/?td=rt-4a !
Can we be confident that systems can tell men and women apart when they can't tell the highly qualified apart from the not at al qualified? I think NOT.

Re: Who creates the hash?
By the way, did anyone else notice that Google Image Search, which used to work quite well, now works extremely poorly? I typically put in small images I'm looking for a larger copy of. It used to be great at this. Usually found one if I thought it likely there was one on the inter webs. Now it's rare.
Re: You asked for it, you got it
Ouch. Snake's comment hurt. Because it hit home. It's not like there weren't warning signs.
revilo is right.
Except that as far as I can tell, it's impossible to use just about any smart device remotely close to normally in the common sense of the word and be confident it hasn't been pwned.
Open civil disobedience is another option. "They" can't jail all of "us". WFM. No one has come for me. As long as there are more with me than with evil, I'm good. It's things designed to make us fearful - like this announcement, like 2/3 of the news, that push people into accepting/supporting evil, but at the same time, it pushes people to wake up and act for good. The I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore crowd.
Article author Richard Chirgwin is either a stooge or incompetent (or this is just cljckspam). Here's why:
What Greenwald wrote is, "“Speargun” involved the covert installation of 'cable access' equipment, which appears to refer to surveillance of the country’s main undersea cable link, the Southern Cross cable."
In no way does this include Greenwald claiming that the undersea portion of the cable link was accessed. It could be done the same way splitters feed Room 641A (Google it or see video.pbs.org/video/2365249828 ...)
Not to mention that other commenters have pointed out that the US has assets (USS Jimmy Carter) designed specifically to tap undersea cables.
Anyone willing to help me find my stolen GSM phones then?
So given the IMEI, it's not hard to brute force ones way into a phone! It ticks me off that AT&T and T-Mobile are unwilling to help recover phones unless served with a court order.
My Android and iPhone were stolen recently. I have the IMEIs. (Well, I was pickpocketed of the former and left the latter in a restaurant, so arguably the latter isn't theft.)
I guess I could head over to the RSA conference and find Aaron Turner. I guess I could find the CCClub-published info mentioned and do it myself. I'm reachable at 7-M-Elvey in the SF area code.
@Darren Forster: "Then call the person and tell them the password..."
And the phone system IS secure? No... When I lived in NYC, I could have safely and easily tapped the lines of anyone in the building.
Glad to see google getting with the program. Half the cost of SSL is in the initial handshake, which Google always did to protect the login itself. I've been using SSL with my provider for years. (fastmail.fm).
Hardened porn sites, har har...
Chris Miller: excellent post! Spot on.
Adrian wrote "Apart from the illegality of it" - at first I thought he was saying the filtering was illegal, not the address spoofing!
AC: very funny!
Hardened? Well, aside from the double entendre, sure! Porn sites make money. Lots of money. So of course they'll be hardened.
It's much harder for Monster to keep crooks out of its database than AMTD... How would monster do so? I.e. how would it differentiate between a faux firm set up to look like a normal company looking for staff, and a real one? Reliably? At reasonable cost?
