Submission + - Quicken Bill Pay is No Longer Safe to Use (perens.com)

Bruce Perens writes: I don't usually make security calls, but when a company makes egregious and really clueless security mistakes, it's often the case that the only way to attract their attention and get the issue fixed is to publicize it. This one is with Quicken Bill Pay, a product of Metavante (not Intuit). It's from personal observation rather than an expert witness case, and the company has been unresponsive through their customer support channel.

Scientists determined that those people who made use of machine washing rather than hand washing had diminished hand strength and neurological motor communication necessary for fine motor control. Seamstresses who bought thread rather than using the spinning jenny were similarly impaired. But worst off were teamsters who used the internal combustion trucks rather than teams of horses and used forklifts and other mechanical devices rather than loading their vehicles by hand. Their overall body strength was much reduced.

Say I bought 100 bitcoins back when they were worth nothing and never touched them until today. One bitcoin is worth $1055 now. What did I lose? Changing them into currency isn't a problem. Newegg accepts bitcoin so I buy random items and resell them on eBay. So yeah I take a slight loss there along with fees but come on how is that not a sound plan?

You do realize that you're making assumptions about my knowledge without any basis whatsoever? I've been making video games professionally since 1995. I'm curious as to your logical leap of "My friend says so-and-so" to "This guy has no idea what he is saying." What gives your friend any more basis to say something regarding gaming technology than anyone else? I've stated the reason why I feel I can offer advice. Please do the same.
