Amazon Could (Should) Do More
In this particular case a monitoring system that caught order failures like this and then tried to submit an order that should be accepted could take the merchant offline if that failed.

I found that until I clicked that DuckDuckGo defaults to US as your location. You can change this in settings. If you don't want to allow cookies then you can bookmark https://www.duckduckgo.com/?kl=uk-en&kad=en_GB to indicate you're in the UK and want real English.
This was my first thought - have a per user, cryptographically random, salt. In use (i.e. generating a comparison hash from an input password) the stored salt is itself modified (e.g. encrypted) before being used so that the database itself doesn't hold the information necessary to reverse engineer the password hash.
... those e-mails probably are from those accounts, they're not spoofed. The accounts have either been bot generated or hacked. After all, why would a spammer spoof e-mail addresses that are likely to be blocked when they can just as easily spoof @bbc.co.uk?
The KB article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2264107, states that a DLL load will look in the directory from which the application loaded, the system directory, the 16-bit system directory and the Windows directory _before_ it looks in the CWD. So, unless it's expecting the DLL to be somewhere in PATH (which is checked after CWD), what is it that is causing the application to load a DLL from CWD? On my system, W7, I can't see anything in the PATH that might be relevant to Firefox which is listed as vulnerable.
More implies an increase against a base so the cost is only 2.7 times more expensive (but 3.7 times as expensive). This is something that is increasingly prevalent in advertising - my toothpaste is apparently 2x better than it was. Do they mean that it is 3x as good as it was or really only twice as good?
Would this keep everyone happy? ...
1. Adverts are tagged to indicate the areas of interest, the type of advert (static, Flash, Java etc.), the advertising source and the tag source.
2. Users can subscribe to tag filters.
3. Adblock Plus 2.
The tag source would indicate where the tag had been authorised (e.g. nowhere, the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK or some other A.S.A.).
That way the end user is in control of the types of advert displayed, is more likely to 'click through' but still has the option to disable all ads.
