Man, do I ever know the pain of the last panel in that comic.

+1 - I just had a poorly timed interruption cost me 2 hours of putting Humpty-Dumpty's ass back together last week.

Hold Security warned in a blog post .... Hold Security is telling people not to panic and instead to strategize. It's recommending that users sign up for identity monitoring or identity protection services -- specifically touting its own service that is said to cost roughly $120 per month.

Right! Because nobody can steal you money if you've already wasted it all buying dumb shit ... Like an insurance policy that purports to ensure that you are indeed the real you...just because they say so. Even though they've never actually seen your ass IRL.

@wraith808 and Stoic Joker:
Your suggestions are valid, but I think I get the programmer why he chose this layout. We are in agreement that this interface is not as nice and tidy as it can be, but I find it also a pain in the donkey to continuously select an item from a list, configure it and continue with the next item on the list. Especially when I want to do that for all possible drive options. And keep an overview of what I have set.

Both control options suggested offer multi select which would allow the same work to be done with less clicks. Wraith's is more compact, and mine allows for the birds eye overview of which you speak. Either would be less intimidating for the user than opening with what appears to be a zillion options.
183  DonationCoder.com Software / DC Member Programs and Projects / Re: Drive Policies Management Toolkit BETA on: August 04, 2014, 11:26:35 AM
Just my opinion, but that interface looks a bit too busy for what it does, especially for the Drive Letter policies.  I know I wouldn't use it personally because of that.  Just feedback...

+1 - I was trying to find a tactful way of saying that this morning, but ran out of time.

Maybe a ListView control with an options panel might be nice.

I'm a bit vague about who Kim Kardashian is. I mean, I've heard/seen the name, but have no real idea who/what she is known for

You just answered your own question. She is one of those people who is described as being famous for being famous ... Because they have exactly zero actual accomplishments. Kind of like Paris Hilton, who outside of the infamous video...never did a damn thing worth noticing. Yet she is (or was) in the news constantly for doing what exactly? Nothing. Oh look there is who-gives-a-shit doing who-gives-a-shit again!! ...Quick get a photo!!!

*Sigh*

You actually know who Kim Kardashian is. In an ideal world, you’d be as unaware of her existence as you are of the names of the Chinese kids who made the futurephone or featherweight laptop you’re almost certainly reading this on. In an ideal world, Kim Kardashian would have spent her life getting sport-fucked anonymously by hip-hop stars in some Bel Air mansion, ran a salon, and either died of a coke overdose or Botox poisoning. There is no reason that her face and her life and her tits and her deathless thoughts needed to be foisted upon the world outside of the 90210 ZIP code. Except that somebody figured out that you could make money off showing people the car accident in slow motion, that people would watch that. Sure they will. People love to watch stupid people do stupid things. It makes them feel less stupid.

Reality TV in a nutshell there.

Y'know...if I were in power, I'd probably covertly be encouraging efforts like Bleep and Tor. And the more, the better. It defuses some of the geek outrage - and ties up some very smart and dedicated people (and money) who might otherwise be causing all kinds of problems for me. So let all these brainy types (most of whom will do anything to avoid dealing with an actual person) code to their heart's content. Because in this scenario, the only thing better than my opposition not having a good solution, is having them put their trust in a broken one...

I so hope you are wrong. That's just utterly depressing.

Yet I suspect we both know he's right.


I'm still hopeful and cheering for the cryptoanarchists out there.

As do I ... But a little piece of me died - Part of my inner child that still clings to silly things like 'Hope' - when Anonymous went under.

It strikes me more as what they see as a way to put a partial "unlimited" data plan in place.

Strikes me as a New Speak small step in changing how service terms are to be understood. They're acting like it's an increase in the "Data Plan" implying more bandwidth/traffic/access as we know and understand things now. When it really is a incremental step towards the cable TV provider-esq Social Network and Entertainment Channel Package.

...And all the horrors we've long feared and suspected will manifest true.

I've got a Lumia 928, and absolutely no interest in looking at anything else. It does what I want it to do, nothing more, nothing less. I'm not interested in tinkering around with the phone...or any phone for that matter. It needs to just work and this does.

The appeal of jail breaking a devise just doesn't work for me, as the last thing I need is yet another time vampire "hobby". I'm not a gamer, and I have no interest in having a 'App' for everything under the sun that forces me to have to drill down through a list if software bits to find the widget that will tell me what I probably should just know. My fingers are tired more often than not these days...so I'd rather just used my brain instead.

My brother has an iPhone that he can't wait to get rid of because he's tired of me looking at him with wide-eyed wondrous sarcasm as I ask: Why isn't it Just Working?!? ...every time it screws up and/or crashes on him.

The only thing I've seen recently was EMET stopping an older version of flash player in FireFox after an ad set something off.

That is an interesting one, but it will have a distinct impact on performance when turned up all the way. It noticeably slowed up the ~6mo old HP Z420 I have at the office and that's a really high-end machine.

She gets a lot of company and client-generated PDF and document attachments with her e-mail.

With the popularity of Multi Function Printers these days, many companies are going paperless-er. And it seems like a lot of the people that set these things up always leave the default subject line in the scan to email configuration. Se people being used to accepting 'Xerox/HP/Lexmark/whatever model X created document' for a subject line while dealing with 50-100 of these a day can make it easy as hell to miss a bad one. Especially if the attacker matches up the default naming convention of the manufacturer with their name ... Or picks something inconspicuous and relevant like Invoice, Receipt, or Purchase Order.
This happens mainly because nobody wants to have to stand there in front of the damn thing and type a bunch of anything in on one of those tiny assed touch screens. So default, default, default, and send it is. Every friggin time.

Anytime I have to setup scan to Email on one of these devices - which happens a lot given the business we're in - I change the subject line to something that is relevant to the sending company to avoid having their Emailed scans adding to the problem.

Given the popularity of the technology, and ease of blending in...those things can be a real bitch to spot. And as a card carrying BOFH, it truly pains me to say it ... But it's damn hard to blame the user for missing one of these.

It's a more a risk minimization strategy rather than a risk elimination process.

That's definitely an important distinction, as security software is like birth control. Everything is 98% effective...and the last 2% is entirely up to you.

@AlbertiX - Thank you!

Thank Abterix for that

 cheesy

Well I ran it live on the production system and it worked perfectly. I even discovered an interesting ("Feature") side effect. It seems that if there is not adequate permissions to move the file, it will loop at 30 second intervals and stall on that file. The advantage here was once noticed, all I had to do was reset the permissions on that file and wait 30 seconds for the script to continue ... Which was way better than having to start the whole shebang over from the beginning.

Now I just have to point it at the 568GB of faculty files and I should be just about done with this part.

Thanks Guys! You really saved my ass on this one.

Store it in the Cloud!

Generally speaking, how much do you trust Cloud? I know that even Cloud is (as expected) under attack.

The Cloud is about as rife with penetration options as Linda Lovelace's entourage ... But I'm guessing he's unaware that I only deal with business/commercial class networks.

The damage done by ransomware encryption was annoying, but less an issue since she had clean and very recent backups of all her critical stuff.

I've only ran into that one once during an accountant was checking their personal webmail at work episode. All the stuff on the server was saved using the Previous Versions feature (I really like that one), and all the stuff on the workstation was... hehehe ...Well they won't do that again.

Rule 0: No critical data is ever to be stored on a workstation.

Okay, initial small sample testing looks good ... But I'm going to get some sleep before a try touching this off on a full scale test. I've been pulling 16 hour days for 3 weeks straight on this gig so being fried is a state I past long ago and remember fondly.

Oh and yes the structure is figurative (they actually use name fragments), I was just tying to describe the problem as clearly as possible.

Thank You!
