Never seen that. How quaint.
And here's silly me thinking you can stop this from happening by not using Edge and turning SmartScreen off

"The 'problem' for those folks in Australia is that we have not had any big attacks - indeed barely any attacks at all. Thus, there is no catalyst that can be leveraged; no public outrage or fear to exploit."
Oh I wouldn't worry about that. That'll be fixed if there's any real opposition to these "laws". A ready-made solution exists for a reaction that has no problem to react to. Cue some scariness to focus the minds

Quite the opposite, I suspect. They are using a false-flag attack to finally get Crapple to release the keys to the (encryption) kingdom on iPhone. Mainly so they can rifle through everyone's phones, at will, for anything they damn well please. No tin foil necessary. It's happening along with plenty of other shenanigans commonly cited as "tin foil" worthy.
You are so missing the point it's funny. Never mind the myriad of reports from the scene while this tragedy was unfolding that point the finger of suspicion diametrically away from these two losers. Some people will believe anything, which is what US law enforcement and the US Govt depend on, I suppose.
One can't help thinking, in the current climate of forced "openess" encouraged by our spymasters i.e nothing is off limits any more, that these "vulnerabilities" are nothing of the sort to those who would really 0wn you.
Who wrote and refined them, and put them into the mobile ecosystem, I wonder? It's as likely to be a home-grown spook as a Russian gangster.
Sure, they're inherent in (all) mobile OS' but it makes you wonder..make me wonder, anyway
This sounds like total balls to me.
I'm no conspiracy factualist but how come every large "terror" event in either the US or UK in the last ten years has been either during or right after a "drill", or the security services "knew" about the perpetrators beforehand? Don't believe that? Check the facts. 9/11; 7/7; Boston; Sandy Hook etc etc. All had "drills" running concurrently with the event. Lee Rigby's attackers were "known" to both MI6 and MI5. A mate of the perps went public right afterwards saying he had also been approached to be "recruited" by SIS. He was arrested straight away for "terror offences". Funny that.
A suspicious person might think they had picked up the wrong bag in another "drill". Also funny the threat level was raised right afterwards. Another suspicious person might speculate the two were supposed to be connected. Not me, obviously.
Also, when did airports start handing out replacement suitcases?
