Ex-Exel president found guilty of hacking former employers

Jon 86


Joiners, Movers and Leaver processes not effective. A manager could have triggered the process informing HR of the resignation or dismissal of the employee. HR will confirm and inform IT to disable or remove such accounts. Compliance thus require audit trail so disabling the account will be sufficient.

Oh hang on... there was a backdoor right? Is this through external email access or some kind of secured tunnel. Hmm, nothing new here..Oh well, erm, they the organisation may still be compliant with a number of regulations yet these sort of things still happens.

Spooks want backdoor into your network

Jon 86

And soon

all your network are belong to us. Can we have access to your internal process for defending against attack too so that we can align our process with yours to be able to draw up best practice solution against the cyber attacks that originate from our enemies like "China"?.

This ^ will soon happen.

Last time I read, the backdoor left in Google's network was used by attackers to penetrate their network. I may be wrong here but isn't more backdoors there already?

@dylan 4

I would guess either HTC or T-Mobile will have the means to allow the user to upgrade their firmware.

The good news is, their "means" will be used by others to "jail-break" the phone.

So all is not lost for the "jail-breakers"

Free internet for crime...

Who did they use to get decent bandwidth?

Don't forget that you don't have to sit in your room anymore to do anything these days. The internet on the mobile devices plus free wifi from even the fast food chain makes it easier.

They're from EU right. So they'll setup a server there and remotely login to harvest their data.

No need for decent broadband at home anymore.

@Warren G

What were you thinking. Social networking site that gathers your private data would surely know everything about you.

Oh! and some users have gone to the extent of posting their DoB, address and family history. It doesn't get any better than this for facebook.

Log back in with the details you registered with, and you'll be faced with an option to retrieve your old account. :P, at least Hi5 has this option for you.

You can run but you can't hide from Facebook now :)
