Normal employment policy is credentials are immediately revoked when any employee does not respond to login/status requests for over 3 business days. But don't let the cool kids tell you that's reasonable to enforce on important people.
I went to use one of these and it wanted to install an iOS configuration profile on my phone.
How did you even get access? Every one of these in midtown has a homeless person sitting on milkcrates staring at the screen.
I have a feeling this problem was not raised at the "Take over NYC with Wifi" conference call. Overall statistics for this project are going to be heavily skewed by the non-stop ability of those without to consume far more than those with.
This has happened to me at least twice when disclosing security issues. They acknowledge the incident, they fix it, and then they attacked me when I published my report.
I once owned an AS domain. Despite the fact that they list themselves as having an office in NYC, writing to them, emailing them and calling their listed number generated no response to requests I made to have the administrative contact changed. They have no proper web interface either. I dropped my AS domain due to their complete incompetence and lack of support. Looks like that was the best move I could have made after this recent incident was made public.
Concert cellist Sergei Roldugin has known Vladimir Putin since they were teenagers and is godfather to the president's daughter Maria. On paper, Mr Roldugin has personally made hundreds of millions of dollars in profits from suspicious deals. But documents from Mr Roldugin's companies state that: "The company is a corporate screen established principally to protect the identity and confidentiality of the ultimate beneficial owner of the company."
Tomorrow's papers: Sergei Roldugin was found in his Moscow apartment this afternoon, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Why such a low ransom for such a high risk? I bet the hospital has more $ in its petty cash drawer...
Perhaps this is a proof-of-concept run for the attackers...
They just don't know what they have. Once they see the publicity guaranteed this goes up to 400 BTC in a heartbeat.
Defacing websites, redirecting domains, stealing e-mail, hijacking social media accounts, spear-phishing... aren't those things pretty much what every script kiddie does? Are all hazors now terrorists?
Apparently on par with terrorist bombing. Because, you know, defacing websites kills civility.
If you advocate for more surveillance and the erosion of civil liberties in response to these attacks, you are cooperating with the terrorists in their attempt to undermine the fundamental values of our society.
You insensitive clod, we need phone decryption to spy on law-abiding citizen, not terrorists!
Do it like India showed us last week, all exams are do be done in swimming gear, preferably on glass desks.
You mean in their underwear
