Submission + - Has geckostocktrader.com been HACKED ??

They have a special VIP web address for certain people to sign up for FREE (for potential site purchaser evaluation purposes I presume).

Any way if you hit the site via this link,

http://www.geckostocktrader.com/vip.php?specialacc ount=yes&instantenable=yes

and signup as normal you are automatically made a VIP instantly and you can trade on geckostocktrader for free whereas normally you would have to pay in order to fund the jackpot.

It does work, I tested it. Now try and keep it under your hat! With a $8000 jackpot in 19 days time, it has to be worth a shot.

Or should we let them know they left the backdoor open?"

Submission + - Mac's and Disaster Recovery plans?

An anonymous reader writes: My current organization is working on a revised DR plan. The systems administration team is pushing for the use of Mac laptops for DR. One such example of a need for it is the event that a virus takes out our windows based network and a non windows OS is needed for recovery. A non windows OS that has full hardware and software support to avoid different vendors passing the buck. Unfortunately we are receiving a lot of push back from management which seems to be caused by a knee-jerk reaction based on the outdated idea that "Mac is for artists, not business". Is anyone out there including Mac's in their DR plan, or for any related reasons? I cannot imagine we are the only people who see a huge boon to using Mac's in security related matters.

God is real, unless declared integer.
