Your lucky then, I've had two friends come back from the doctor in worse condition than they were in the first place after they got medicated. In one case my friend got better when the doctor took him back off the meds but in the other they doubled down on the meds and he ended up not being able to function on how own (or even hold a conversation) and in a group home.
I probably should have been more clear about that in my original post. Once the boss saw that he wrote more solid code, he got assigned more difficult projects than the rest of the programmers yet he still managed to keep his low bug count.
One of the best programmers I've ever worked with started as an accountant and became a programmer in his 40s first with ASP and then with PHP. What he lacked in advanced knowledge he made in spades up by being careful and methodical. He never tried to show off and when he designed something it was generally right the first time and out of the 20 programmers in our office he had by far the lowest bug count.
Quite frankly, I don't think the webserver was the entry point for Cdorkd.A since as far as I read it was mainly machines with cpanel that were infected. Even if the problem wasn't cpanel Apache doesn't run with the right permissions to change it's own binary. If the entry point is elsewhere, once they are in the machine with root access discovering what web server software being used is trivial.
Rather than worrying about something as trivial as the web server software, I would be much more concerned about why none of the control panels I've come across seem to have any sort of secure design. They run as root without any sort of privilege separation and edit the config files even when daemons are available that have a database back end.
XFS is mostly reliable but, as I found out with several PCs, if it gets shut off at the wrong time it will need a disk repair and then you are in for some fun because their repair utility doesn't work at all on a mounted FS (even if it is read only) meaning to repair a damaged XFS volume you will now need to use a boot disk.
Fat lot of good that reporting does. Last year someone cloned my aunt's account and sent everyone a message telling them to delete the real account from their friends list.
Facebook eventually deleted the cloned account but absolutely refused to delete the account the scammer was using to reel people in. You would think that "AM ON FACEBOOK WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT" on his profile would have been a dead giveaway but Facebook couldn't be bothered..
It wouldn't shock me.. I once had a social studies teacher who spent a lot of his time either trying to convince us that the teacher's union is always right or that my province should split from Canada and join with Washington, Oregon and California to form a new country called "Cascadia". Throw in a Chemistry teacher who had problems with anyone not an atheist or vegetarian, a health teacher who blamed men for everything wrong in this world and I got the idea very quickly that teachers often have the view that their position gives them the right to shove their own views down the throats of the students.
The only time I have ever seen a teacher take any heat for anything that came out of their mouths was a substitute teacher who went off on a rant about how South Africa was better off under apartheid because "blacks can't run things". We never saw him again. Quite frankly, teachers can say and do what they want so long as they don't trash talk anyone for being female or not white.
Wrong link. Meant to use this one
Ugly and non creative. For what he spent on that he could have had a luxury submarine
The fundamental problem is that the phone system is notoriously insecure and trusts the sending provider to show accurate information. All you need to do to spoof the calling info? A digital line.. this means that any office with a T1 or better and a digital PBX can spoof calls and worse yet VOIP services often let the caller set that info as well.
We all get to suffer because the telcos are too lazy to add egress filtering.
I do the same and I just checked: No it doesn't.
IDC is also the company that predicted that the Itanium would be a huge success so I would take any prediction of theirs with a grain of salt.
That name must result in a lot of very disappointed foreigners.
I don't disagree with that but there is also a good reason we tend to prefer strongly typed languages: it aids in debugging. Having something error out is much easier to debug than having something return bad data or worse yet: silently corrupt data when writing.
