When the US Government tried to suppress the publication of the Pentagon papers it didn't go so well. I see no difference in what the New York Times did in the 70's and what Assange did now.
And for the prosecution and possible conviction of Assange to stand the USSC would have to re-visit and overturn their decision, New York Times Co. v. United States.
Automatic account creation:
Sign up for service from several major ISPs and they automatically create an email account for you and quite often that newly created email accnt is actually hosted on Yahoo owned serves and not at the ISP. AT&T being a prime example. And with this emial address and password that ISP created for you it's possible login and change everything in account management settings for ISP.
in the US we have the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act (enacted 1975).
Recently the US FTC warned 6 companies about their warranty practices/conditions.
Each company used different language, but here are examples of questionable provisions:
The use of [company name] parts is required to keep your . . . manufacturer’s warranties and any extended warranties intact.
This warranty shall not apply if this product . . . is used with products not sold or licensed by [company name].
This warranty does not apply if this product . . . has had the warranty seal on the [product] altered, defaced, or removed.
Seeing that infections have been spread before by just such a USB mailing.. Blue Cross should of known better!
American Dental Association inadvertently mails USB drives infected with malware to its members.
It appears to be the DHCP client in Win 10.
Customers with Win 10 and DHCP, as apposed to customers who use manual configuration, have been a headache. It's the ISPs and retailers who are left to pick up the pieces 'cause of Redmond's screw-up. Don't we just love he new update mechanism in Win 10? SPIT, SPUTTER, CURSE! No way in hell!
"The June SQLi attack targeted the Illinois Board of Elections, and was used to swipe the personal data of 200,000 citizens, ..." So the perps got what personal data that wasn't already published by the Illinois Board of Elections? FYI: voter registration rolls in the US are generally a matter of public record and usually include information like name, physical address, date of birth, race, gender, phone number, registration ID number, voters status (if you voted in previous elections), party affiliation.
As an example anyone can purchase a complete copy of Florida's voter registrations roll for a measly $5.00 US.
