There has been read/write support for NTFS in linux for years. It's a FUSE based filesystem sure but it works.

Linux kernel maintainers tear Paragon a new one after firm submits read-write NTFS driver in 27,000 lines of code
I've not used the 8.3 beta installer but it looks like they just moved the user creation bit into the stuff that has to be filled in before the install can start. If it's like it was before this change, when you got to fill it in at your leisure while the install was running, then setting the root password is mandatory but the user creation is optional. If you look at the text it does actually say "No user will be created".

Plus mortality rate at present is being estimated assuming that we have a functional health care system. If 20% of the population go down with this at once and 4% of those fall into the "critical" category then we're talking about more than 500,000 people in the UK needing ICU treatment at any one time. That still leaves the 15% with "severe" symptoms to fend for themselves at home. Better hope that you're one of the 81% with only "mild" (whatever those are!) symptoms.

Under that clause, is it not the responsibility of the NHS trust in question since it is them that are making the content of the communication system available by broadcasting it in plain text in the first place?

You mean he got one of those emails saying "I caught you in front of your computer and your password is 'password'"?
Awkward... Revealed Facebook emails show plans for data slurping, selling access to addicts' info, crafty PR spinning
Yes, they really seized them
TL;DR: "Rarely used parliamentary powers were used to demand that the boss of a US software firm hand over the details." and "In a highly unusual move the House of Commons serjeant-at-arms was sent to the businessman's hotel and he was given a final warning and a two-hour deadline to comply with the order."
The bug is already identified and a fix has been provided (unofficially) for CentOS. The CentOS bug report for this is https://bugs.centos.org//view.php?id=15193 and the fixed version is on https://buildlogs.centos.org/c7.1804.u.x86_64/kernel/20180820114938/3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.bug15193.x86_64/ and the fix has also been incorporated into the latest CentOS plus kernel kernel-plus-3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.centos.plus.1.x86_64.rpm
So.... interviews at the start of October, by the time they've interviewed the candidates and made their decision and had an offer accepted it'll be at least the end of October. Wait 3 months for them to resign and be released from their current job and they'd be starting around Feb 2019 and this all has to be up and running by March. So start in Feb, fired in March. Good job!
Why the fsck has this person not been in place since June 24th 2016?
I've had two of these mails in the last 3 days and both told me that my password was 'changeme' which, to the best my knowledge, is not one I've ever used anywhere for anything. I vaguely recall it used to be the default password for some java key store as delivered from Sun/Oracle but it's certainly not one I'd choose to use (much too complicated, mine are all 'password', honest). They can send me as many as they want but since I already know I've never been anywhere near an adult site and most likely never will, I'm not likely to be paying anyone anything.
CentOS 6 is in production phase 3
So... yes, CentOS 6 is "supported" until 2020 but the upstream RHEL that it's based on and receives all its patches from went into what Redhat call "Production Phase 3" on May 10th 2017. That means that only security vulnerabilities that Redhat class as "critical" will now be fixed. Anything that's merely "important" or less gets patched if they feel like it and judging by the things that _didn't_ get fixed in RHEL5 once that reached PP3, that's going to mean that CentOS 6 gets less and less secure over the next 2.5 years until it goes EOL.

The one kilobit figure is wrong
Having done a little reading around it seems that the spacecraft has 2 transmitters and both can be used simultaneously if they shutdown other equipment on board. That nearly doubles the data rate to 2Kb/s but that still doesn't explain the discrepancy. I also see that the image data can be compressed by a considerable factor so this is probably more likely to be the explanation - the 50GB figure is going to be the total data size before compression.

> Effectively Red Hat and Oracle have both done that. They publish their own version of the kernel as a tarball
Haha. Not sure if that's meant to be a joke since the main reason that Redhat produce a monolithic patch of their modifications to the kernel is to stop Oracle from hijacking their work.
