"Flashback developers have also rejiggered their code so that it no longer installs itself in an easy-to-spot subfolder off the OS X ~/Library location. Instead, it plants a backdoor inside a more obscure folder associated with the Safari. Deleting the files prevents the browser from working."
Thanks for telling us what the folder IS!
Seriously, the three responders to the original poster MUST not be from the US.
Mainly because they actually know and have provided REAL-LIFE facts to support their arguments.
Who are ye that knows the ways of reality so well? (A DUCK!)
Maybe humanity has SOME hope after all.....
Where am I?
I've never encountered such creatures.....in my country...(or even in Soviet Russia....nah I kid, they actually did more for space than Righties in the US).
Oh, and wasn't it Reagan (the guy the RIght LOVES) that REMOVED solar panels from the WH....for some......reason....
Or, we have no hope at all....
What the hell?
Where the hell was he when the last Administration was keeping funding from scientific research on stem cells that can advance humankind, and spending all that money on multiple wars that ruined our possibility for funding anything else, including reducing the possibility of maintaining the shuttle program, or possible missions to Mars.
In fact, it's THIS Administration that wants a mission to Mars, as, well, we've already BEEN to the moon.
I respect the hell out of him for what he did....er, ~40 years ago. But, times change....
Mediocrity my ass, that was before, this is NOW. Sounds like the Republicans got another guy to throw some vitriol around for them as well.
I mean, the guy isn't exactly a scientist...his career began as a warm body to test different experimental aircraft.....
(Oh no he ditn't!)
CERN's director-general Rolf-Dieter Heuer warned his scientists "to present the results clearly but not interpret them".
Why the hell not?
What they should say when making such statements, as they have in the past, should be "to present the results clearly, and allow assholes to take said information and formulate it into a lie that supports whatever sponsors they hold dear to them".
For once, can we have a SCIENTIST interpret what they know, and not a damn idiot on TV?
Ah well, sigh.
Who stands to benefit from evidence of life being hidden? Erm, well....the Catholic Church....any OTHER church....
Who is likely to get loads of extra funding in the event of extra terrestrial life being discovered? Well, if US Republicans are around.....
Who runs a totally watertight operation with absolute secrecy? The Catholic Church managed it for quite some time, did they not? XD
You call people 'chief'? SO DO I!!! :D
Thus making the idea of separate countries even more pointless, as it doesn't really matter.
The problem, ultimately, is that the individuals making the majority of internet transactions/actions don't understand "The Internet" conceptually.
It's something mankind has yet to really understand the full implications of.
Should people still not be cautious of cloud services in general? (Given recent history of Amazon's EC2, etc)
I feel like tech reporting has now become inherently more like the political spectrum of news "gathering"...with general supporters on both sides of an argument arbitrarily flinging poo at each other.
(Too bad there's no monkey icon)
[QUOTE] “If you encrypt everything haphazardly with loads of different keys, you are making a nightmare for yourself in five years time when you want to open encrypted files with keys you no longer own." [/QUOTE]
...or would this ONLY happen in a cloud-based system where you will most likely be given a "subscription"-based fee for the keys you "own".
If you privately/locally make and store your keys, they are yours, and would remain so. And, you could have at-will access to them, if needed in the future.
Perhaps I'm not understanding the entire implication of what is being stated here....
In fact, I was merely expressing my experience....
...and I don't wear glasses...
And with the name calling....sounds like someone's annoyed by what I stated to be my own personal experience. Oh, and I never said anything outside of the Midwest, did I? At any point. I'm pretty sure you are showing your colors a bit more than I.
In fact, I am extremely at odds with Apple in the direction SJ has taken them. I long for the days of true innovation and vision that Woz brought to the table. SJ is just more about screwing others with lawsuits and keeping everything under his ultimate control. not to mention the big FUCK YOU they threw to the enterprise users by dumping XServe.
Thanks for playing!
"for the better part of 10 years IE was the best free browser available on the internet."
....even on a Mac
Though, Communicator 4.5-7 is a soft spot for me, as I used to use it constantly for the browsing and Composer back then!!! Ahh, to be 14 again.
Even though it's not well known, iCab on OS 8.5-6/9.x performed very well. And, if you think nobody knows about it NOW...... XD
This all comes down to the philosophy of our "instant gratification society". Issues cannot take time to repair anymore...they need to be repaired within -10 seconds of when they occur.
It's BECAUSE of management that we have this extremely ridiculous idea that there is no such thing as downtime. Everybody is supposed to be working all the time, and even outside of your normal hours, your work environment travels with you, and your employer claims to own your ass.
People need to THINK more before acting/reacting. Taking that short bit of time will help clear your mind to properly tackle any issue.
It's actually a LACK of philosophy that contributes to this "first response" mentality that isn't really needed in professions outside emergency services. But, if you don't respond quickly enough, we'll find one in some sweat shop overseas....oh wait, they're already doing that.....right, because corporations are people too!
LOOK new icons!!!!!
Really? Uh....okay. I'm NOT going to go into how many things you can do with iPads over Android tablets. OR, how locking things down promotes proper functionality of a device. OR, how many people using the iPad don't give a shit about FULL functionality in such a device.
Nope, none of that at all.
Cheers, from a fanboi....yet realist.
So, I wonder how many taxpayer dollars and going to go into the "analysis" of said collection...
...."just in case" their are any jihadist messages "hidden".
Much like watching Johnny Chimpo in Supertroopers....
"maybe we should take another look.....?"
"Hey Farva, what's that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit on the wall?"
I marvel at the fact that WE "marvel" at such a simple process....and one that was so easily detected.
1) Courier Arrives at a compound....
2) Courier Leaves Compound
3) Courier arrives at an internet cafe
4) Email from bin Laden sent
5) Courier leaves internet cafe
Rinse and REPEAT....over and over and over.....
How often did this happen? Maybe a "couple" of times....
