Counterfeit parts

I know of a similar issue with counterfeit parts (diodes) that entered the supply chain of major US telecom vendor in the early/mid 2000s (merged & bought twice since).

As a UK based engineer I had to visit our UK and Ireland staging areas and inspect products waiting to be sent to customer sites, as the company didn't know when (time frame) they were used in the manufacturing process.

BTW, these diodes were used in the -48v dc power circuits and would/could fail spectacularly! Hence icon.

Isn't that what an electric monk is for?

Gather round, friends. Listen close. It's time to list the five biggest lies about 5G


Re: The madness is everywhere

Ah, constructing the questions to get the desired answer. Do they really believe that such false/unrealistic assumptions won't be spotted at a later date?

Ah, this military GPS system looks shoddy but expensive. Shall we try to break it?

NHS needs to pull its finger out and prep staff for future robotics, genomics, data-led healthcare


Re: Don't worry about the IT, what about the staff

Talking of which...


Expired cert... Really? #O2down meltdown shows we should fear bungles and bugs more than hackers


Re: Was this

Alternatively I have first hand experience of a UK telco that did act as a CA, but then managed to 'lose' the passphrase to their root cert! You couldn't make it up
