We can't allow some beret-wearing-mac-toting hipster web site developer to be held responsible, now can we? Actually, all jesting aside, it's right to hold the organization accountable, and possibly key people at the organization if it can be shown that they didn't fulfill their duty (and clearly someone didn't). The contractor is almost never responsible legally in this case, though if the contract demanded that the software do something and it didn't do it, then the organization may be able to sue for breach of contract.
This is a very common way to solve the problem of "how do we do a virus scan on files coming in through https?" Many organizations run a proxy server for all web requests to be able to filter content, and to do anti-virus checks, but obviously it needs to view the unencrypted content to be able to do a scan. Otherwise any employee could be downloading malicious content straight through your firewall and bypass all the checks you have in place.
The media surcharge/tarriff/whatever was only applicable to music, not movies/videos.
"Fast paced work environment!" actually means that we change our specs a lot, even up to the hour before delivery, and we don't want you to complain because we're "fast paced"!
Exactly. If a manufacturer makes a car that explodes when hit in a rear-end collision (Ford Pinto), they get sued. If they installed faulty brake lines, they'd get sued. If they provide a self-driving car, they have to make it "reasonably safe", where "reasonable" is determined by the current state of the art in that field of engineering, or by a jury informed by expert witnesses.
They probably saw in the logs that he went to the Tor website first, downloaded Tor, and then used it. The initial visit to the project's site would be easily visible in the logs.
Really, that's what we had to drag our butts through interstellar space for? Unobtanium is just tin?
That's not he point. The question is, "do you trust that *other* driver more than an automated system?"
As if we have any proof that Health Sherpa is well documented and scalable.
This might be OK if we all had equal access to equivalent amounts of data on what our government officials and employees were doing.
If there's one thing business is exceedingly good at, it's ramping up production when a big customer says they want to buy lots of your product. All Tesla has to do is sign a contract guaranteeing a minimum buy.
Ok, so they made a car with (limited) remote controls that have the same security as a typical website. What could go wrong? Honestly, it's just a really bad idea. I would want it guaranteed that there was a way to completely disable any remote control functionality, so if you still want to have diagnostics and monitoring, etc., then you have to install some kind of data diode to really made it secure. But that's the right way to do it.
With all the news about medical devices with deadly security flaws, and people even hacking into cars (even if only from the backseat), I can't believe Tesla really didn't even *try* to add proper security to their API. The only right way to do it (from a corporate perspective) is to hire an outside security company to audit your design and implementation, and to continue to monitor the security whenever changes are made (so continuously in this case). It's well known that you can't trust the programmers to implement security properly, especially if you had Elon Musk screaming over your shoulder like Steve Jobs all the time.
I was on Rogers in Canada. I was under some kind of grandfathered-in middle-of-the-road high speed connection capped at 95 GB/month, for a little over $60/month. Just started going over that and getting charged for it, so we switched to TekSavvy (local provider), and it's much faster, the "cap" is 300 GB for under $50/month, and if you go over, it they charge you $0.50 or $0.25/GB over, but then *that* caps out at under $70/month total. Then you're automatically on their unlimited plan. Rogers called us 3 or 4 times when we cancelled trying to give us a better deal, but the best they could come up with was $72/month for similar speed and caps, but it was only an introductory rate!
I was definitely thinking of that story when I was writing it.
