You mean kinda like bank's ATM's that blue screen?
What, Google owns Chromium? This is news to me.
Joking aside, the managers, executives, and sales/marketing assholes should be strung up for telling people your data was deleted when in fact it wasn't.
If you're paying in cash then why would you even have to supply ANY information. I know places like Target ask for a zip code but that's just to see how far people are driving so they can plane where to build new stores.
SSHHHH! Don't let Comcast hear you say that. They will double all the Internet fees.
The fact that I can see what host and IPs it's connecting to and downloading the patch files (which are all owned by MS) tells me they are legit.
One should realize that there are a lot "pirated" Windows OS installations in Russia. I would guess more than 90%.
Every pirated version of windows I have used, including the one I'm using right this second, has been getting updates from MS.
I'm almost sure this will make a return. Right now they saw what was happening and they were going to lose out. All Comcast & TWC are doing is stepping back out of the spot light so they can do some more behind the doors deals and 'gift buying' for more politicians.
The fact that my network is seeing a 10 fold increased attacks from Russian IP's over the past 2-3 years is enough to lead me to believe what's being said here is true. Still doesn't beat China but Russia is very quickly gaining ground.
Respond, no maybe not but some people might need to see what the messages are. I have software monitoring many servers and they send out txt messages if anything strange is detected. Some are notices and some are critical alerts that do need to responded to right away.
While China still tops the list on my firewalls, Russia has been rapidly raising up over the past few years.
That's why I skip over and ignore all good reviews and just read the bad ones. To many companies pay for good reviews to make their products look good.
Want to bet there will be cron jobs running every few minutes that purge any politicians meta data.
Sounds like Australia is taking tips from China on how to manage Internet users.
That's fine and dandy for you who seem to have the time to manage the systems. You're just one of the extreme few in the world that's willing to do this. Your average person can't do this or doesn't have the time. I use to love building these systems in my younger days but now I don't have the time to do it. I would rather update my data in an encrypted state to some servers that I know have countless forums of redundancy.
