Every employment contract I've signed has a separate form to explicitly enumerate all your pre-existing Intellectual Property (patented or not). This benefits both the company (in strengthening their claim towards owning things you come up while working for them) and you (in that it establishes that you had the concept prior to working there).

I really don't get the uproar. The crux of the issue seems to be that an update to the software running all the various instances of Wikipedia enabled a new slideshow viewer by default, and removed the ability for site admins to disable it by default (but users still can individually choose their preference).

This is great news for stopping this particular batch of spam.

You just posted the same point twice in this thread, and its completely wrong both times, and shows a total lack of reading comprehension on your part.

They are NOT emailing these addresses, they are attempting to log in to them.

Read the fucking summary, at least. You are what's wrong with the internet.

A lot of people miss this element - "spying" is very different from "legally admissible evidence in court by a police agency". I care a lot less about intelligence agencies, than police agencies.

And yes, that why the supposed collaboration with DEA is so bad, that is far worse than almost anything else that's come out in my mind.

An anonymous reader writes The experts at Kaspersky Lab have discovered evidence of a targeted attack against the clients of a large European bank. According to the logs found in the server used by the attackers, apparently in the space of just one week cybercriminals stole more than half a million euros from accounts in the bank. The experts also detected transaction logs on the server, containing information about which sums of money were taken from which accounts. All in all, more than 190 victims could be identified, most of them located in Italy and Turkey. The sums stolen from each bank account, according to the logs, ranged between 1,700 to 39,000 euros.
