Whoever doubted that...

...Corporations are our true masters, doubt no more.

Democracy under capitalism is a waste of time. Our leaders are not the pollies, but their masters: the corporations.

And the pollies do as they are told, as we see here, even if it results in the most ridiculous of decisions.

Cemented in Wiki Leaks, all over the torrent sites in various guises (text, excel etc).

Will be very interesting to see how this pans out.

[QUOTE]Well, just had a look at the list and noticed at least one specific address that doesn't exist. The road isn't in the town specified, the post code is wrong for the town and the phone number prefix doesn't match either the town listed, or the incorrect post code...

Looks to me like the whole thing is a fake...[ENDQUOTE]

And to the chap above who stated that the thing is a fake, lemme guess, you screwed up the sorting on the spreadsheet, right? ;-)

This worm is so old and so well known anyone with their eyes open could have seen it squeezing its way down the Hospitals' CAT5 cables.

Still sending naked email? Get your protection here


No title require - just a few thoughts ;-)

I am in two minds regarding email encryption. I sometimes think of email in the same way that I do of the telephone. When I make a call, I know that my call is not encrypted and that anyone with the proper authority or equipment can listen in. But I still use the phone every day. Why? Because I know that just about any conversation that I have on the phone will be of little interest to anyone.

Same with my emails - routine, day to day emails that I send contain precious little that would be of interest to anyone, other than the recipients.

But, as we all know, times they are a changing. From what has been happening in the UK and elsewhere it is evident that your daily mundane, inconsequential emails are almost as likely to be read and stored as those emails being sent from the middle east to the UK, complete with references to explosives, weapons etc ;-)

So, what to do? AC's initial point about drawing attention to oneself is valid and doesnt require expanding upon. I like the idea of the dead letter drop. :) It has a certain romanticism about it, that we dont get in sending encrypted emails. Or perhaps and Ipaq-rock, like the one busted in Moscow ;)


I used to work on the crypto side of things years ago for the army. I find the subject fascinating. I read the very short 7 page description hhere and within 10 mins was up and running. Now, all I have to do is 1. find a reason for using encryption in my emails and 2. find a friend who uses encryption.

Email encryption - its a double edge sword for the ordinary user.
