At the time of writing, the politicians who lined up to give Infosys a kicking over the affair remain silent on social media. But individual taxpayers continue to complain.
Politicians have been sufficiently paid off to be quiet. Any fines, legal action or political fall out has been smothered.
Efficient use of "resources" indeed
Some, SOME. !
Geez, Understand losing the deltas for that business day. But come on.
I'm not condoning what she did . But two failures on part of the company,
Firstly, disable access when you fire someone.
Secondly, pay for a proper backup / DR strategy
Live in Sydney Australia. Well "live" is a rather loose term right now. The ever increasing restrictions means the cabin fever has reached a new level.
At this point we are looking around Christmas when our prison sentence will finally end and we can enjoy the new restricted freedoms our gracious government will provide
What's the bet the top management from Infosys now have a notation against their name, that indicates their tax returns get such an invasive audit it would make a colonoscopy look tame.
And to be honest Infosys have screwed plenty of customers and projects in the past, seems only right they get the same treatment
Well Colour me fuckin' surprised. FaecesBook at it again. This time prettying up a quarterly report to appear what...more socially responsible/acceptable. Hate to break it to you Zuckface. Well technically I'm happy to tell you, any social credits you had were lost long, long ago. Anyone with two neurons realise that delving into your platform is akin to diving head first into the bio bin from the VD Clinic.
Publish the first or second, makes little difference you morally defective idiot.
"outcomes must be addressed to restore fairness, create competition"
Restore fairness : Well in fairness Jeff baby, your solution hasn't even made it to the ISS. Is everyone suppose to wait while you try to catch up?
Create competition: Jeff, do you need a dictionary? Look it up, you were "Competing" against Space X and lost. Your solution was in all aspects inferior. You were delivering less and charging more. In essence you are not "value for money".
You hear it all the time on the nightly news. Police urge the offender(s) to turn themselves in. It is only a matter of time before we catch up with you.
It rarely works.
In this instance the better threat would be.
"Whilst we present a legitimate business, in reality a majority of our clients are criminal enterprises. You have stolen the ill gotten gains from dozens of drugs cartels and criminal syndicates. Would you prefer the tender mercies of the Chinese government or hunted down by our customers?"
“Law enforcement in any country will regard this as a major economic crime and you will be pursued. It is very unwise for you to do any further transactions"
Interesting question: I'm not aware of any country that recognises digital currencies as legitimate currency, So is this a financial crime? You don't get government backed guarantees as you do with that country's issued "dollar". Computer intrusion crime definitely. Theft, maybe, financial crime, debatable. If they do ever catch the guy/girl it would be an interesting test case in court. Well for those countries that have a semblance of innocent until proven guilty.
Whilst the UK does bend over the barrel , just like Australia , for the U.S. It does tend to adhere to certain rules of law. This tends to annoy the U.S as they need to answer some very prickly questions. Like what evidence do you have? Can you prove chain of custody? You know rules of law that "innocents until proven guilty" enjoy in the civilised world.
So they prefer countries where they just throw the victim, oops sorry - criminal over the fence in the hopes the U.S. will leave them alone, or give them stuff.
Rarely have I thought of causing serious injury to a person. Definitely not a fan of Zuck or faecesbook before the story, after reading it, I would have no problem punching the guy in the face repeatedly. Literally pulling the plug because they wouldn't make money quick enough, what a fucking lowlife
Well, of course it does. Just not for you. it simplifies the red tape the supplier needs to cut through to screw you over. It certainly simplifies the negotiation process when you have terabytes of data on "their" cloud solution and they decide to up the price. Particularly when you start to add up the exit fees.
All in all the suppliers find things much simpler when you're in the cloud
Early 2000's had a directive come down from the chief beancounter stipulating the very same. Our IT manager fought it for days but was not only overruled but it was now to be given the Highest priority. The instructions he gave were simple.
"You guys know what to do....."
The interruptions to the business were spectacular, the loss in productivity awesome. Assigning the cost of printing out thousands of asset labels back to finances inventory account, brilliant. The additional attention given to legume central would have made the gestapo flinch.
Of course it does, firstly you need to submit a 10 page document outlining the reasons for said privileges to your line manager. After which s/he will inform you that that document was superseded by one available on one of their lotus/slack/intranet/cloud/watson/cognos/mainframe resource sites . they cant remember which .
After filling in the new document you must then get sign off from 2 other line managers ( who happen to have nothing to do with the platform at all ), attend a 3 day internal on line course ( only available in 1 months time, seriously WTF????? ) , do a 10 minute 10 question Q&A with 100% pass, Wait another week for HR to issue the certificate of completion.
Once you have said certificate you then need to email it to (oh wait ..... )
Not so much a legal move against the group running the ransomware. It is a move against anyone within the jurisdiction that reproduces, publishes or maybe even attempt to report on the incident.
You upload any document, mention names (from their internal documents) in any media report, they now have the basis for the civil suit. You must now front court as the person or persons unknown breaching said order. Media would be in a real pickle, settle a sue ball in the millions (they're lawyers so give me all your money) or show the information was obtained via a third party and in publics interest as part of freedom of press.
Don't , Can't or won't divulge how you obtained the information. Congratulations, your legal problems have just started as a felony investigation opened against you for computer related crimes
It delivers on almost all things promised, convenience, speed, accessibility, etc. The problem is almost no one asks and then answers the one important question.
"Am I willing to hand over (credit card information, banking details, medical history, personal details, etc) to a random stranger for safe keeping?
If not, then why are you willing to upload this information onto a storage platform, simply for convenience sake.
