Proofpoint is studying election related phishing attacks, not generic spam. The ratio may be an indicator that the attackers expect Trump supporters to be far more gullible than Clinton supporters.
Even in those early days of AltaVista and Lycos I can't ever recall using Yahoo.
I can't ever recall using AltaVista and Lycos. Of course, I came late to the Internet GUI scene. My first five years on the Internet was on a dial-up SLIP account into a UNIX box and using Lynx (text web browser) to browse the Internet.
The raspberry pi 2 and 3 will run a crippled version of windows 10.
If you want uncrippled windows you need x86.
The assumptions I'm making are the most-generous most in-your-favor assumptions I can reasonable make.
Your assumptions are shit.
I'm pretty sure you'd be an asshole no matter where you worked.
Someone has to get the job done.
And from the pissing and moaning you've done here in the past about your help desk gigs and difficulty finding jobs after being outsourced, I'm pretty sure the "highly paid" thing is just about as real as your "75 pounds of muscle gained in just a year."
I've never been outsourced from any job in the last 20+ years of my IT career. I'm a contractor. I do contract work. The contract can last one day to one year. I'm currently two years into a five-year contract for government IT that's fully paid for by your tax dollars. That also includes paid federal holidays, 20 Paid Time Off (PTO) days, healthcare/dental/vision and 401k. If the Republicans shut down the government tomorrow, I'll still be working since I'm an essential employee.
Well considering that only Americans could be dumb enough to think this kind of low level data is "such sensitive information"
Apparently, you don't understand anything about the physical security of dignitaries and top officials.
Travel plans, routes, and details about the stops of heads of state are always considered highly sensitive security information. This country is full of extremely stupid, gullible, and ridiculously-overarmed people, and a small subset of whom probably thinks it would be a good thing to bring harm to the First Lady. The Secret Service plans the routes, the stops, provides decoy vehicles, and secures each of those locations to an incredible degree; but no amount of effort can secure every location against a patient, well-camouflaged, entrenched sniper. Uncertainty in the travel routes is one of the best ways to keep the lone wolves from being able to plant themselves along the route.
So yes, it is highly sensitive information.
Yahoo was a rather lame index.
That must have been the three years or so that Google provided search results for Yahoo under contract.
I remember I also had to change passwords on Yahoo! about two years ago.
I believe there's a clue in their "Breach FAQ" where they state "the vast majority of passwords were hashed with bcrypt". It could be that their old passwords were protected with a less-secure older salting-and-hashing system, (maybe something like the original crypt() ) and by 2014 they had replaced it with bcrypt.
But even an old crypt() hash can't simply be broken on demand without a lot of CPU grinding for every password recovered. Because the old passwords were hashed, there would have been no easy way for Yahoo! to automatically migrate them into bcrypt. So after the system conversion was complete, they prompted all users to change their old passwords so they would migrate themselves to the new bcrypt-based system. People who haven't logged in since 2014 probably still have the old original hashed passwords on file somewhere at Yahoo HQ..
That would require you to first remove your political/ideological blinders and we all know that ain't about to happen.
Which "political/ideological blinders" would those be?
Who else could claim ownership of the US "our country"?
Mexico. Next question?
