Script-blocker NoScript lets in ANYTHING from googleapis.com

AsherGoldbergstein

"The researcher probed NoScript after fellow hacker Matthew Bryant (@IAmMandatory) found a host of disused default whitelisted domains and purchased one to successfully launch attacks that bypassed default installations."

The researcher found one domain that was unused due to it being recommended by a user and it being a typo.

Why is it that women are consistently paid less than men?

AsherGoldbergstein

If you look into any agenda driven politics the left tries to push you'll see it's built on lies.

Why is that idiot Osbo continuing with austerity when we know it doesn't work?

AsherGoldbergstein

Why is the The Register becoming more and more politicized? It's a IT news site.

How will women and minorities get into IT if the requirement is competency? You'll need to go back to the drawing board on this one friend.

Tor takes off the gloves after sustained staffer harassment

AsherGoldbergstein

"How about banning? Naming and shaming? Publishing IP addresses? (maybe Anon could do something useful for a change with that information?)"

Your solution to the problem of someone getting their feelings hurt online is for the 'harassers' personally identifiable information to be posted publicly? By a company whose mission is to provide 'absolute anonymity'? You're hilarious.

The anonymous poster said he had a BB gun that looked real and was going to attempt suicide by cop. As ever Iain, do your research properly before posting a story.

Women, your 'superpower' is ... NOT asking for a raise: Satya Nadella

AsherGoldbergstein

The gender pay gap is a myth. It's illegal to pay two people who do the same job differently (Equal Pay Act of 1963).

Do you know how they come up with the "77c for every $1 a man makes" line? They take every man working full time in the USA vs every woman working full time in the USA.

This obviously does not account for women leaving and re-entering the workforce for reasons such as family life, child birth etc. Then you have the industries women join, favouring nursing/social work and cleaning vs the highly male jobs such as being a doctor, engineer or I.T professional. There has been countless studies and articles dismissing the so called 'Gender pay gap' but it's still parroted by feminists and low-information voters even though the evidence does not stand up and when they're presented with that evidence they dismiss it as 'misogyny' and ten other buzzwords to silence you so they can continue the ridiculous charade.

“there’s a disparity not because female engineers are making less than male engineers at the same company with comparable experience. The disparity exists because a female social worker makes less than a male engineer.”

"The problem is particularly acute for the long-suffering women of the western world, who must battle the patriarchy's insistence on "small front pockets" every time they try to wodge a mobe into their strides." It's happening!

Do your research before parroting what every other site is reporting Ian, it only makes the site look bad. Your job is to report the news, not produce an opinion piece of you foaming at the mouth.

Reddit wipes clean leaked celeb nudie pics, tells users to zip it

AsherGoldbergstein

Re: Hopefully Ms Maroney has been arrested

Simply taking a nude sexualised picture of herself is classed as creating child pornography and if she sent them to another person that would be distribution. If the recipient asked for the picture that's 5 years minimum although he would now be in possession of it anyway so that's 5 years. Each charge carries a minimum 5 year sentencing in the USA but because she is a celebrity no charges will be filed and she will be the victim instead.

Big content seeks specialist court for copyright cases

AsherGoldbergstein

The copyright monopoly will continue to push for harder sentencing and will move the goal posts inch by inch until it's where they want them. You need to swiftly reject every single movement they push for or it will be draconian in no time.
