Re: Killed SharePoint?

It shows their anti-virus works. It detected the "SharePoint" virus, and cleaned it!

Problem solved.

Next step - label winlogon.exe as malicious and force-install FreeBSD..

We're just getting into SharePoint. Unstructured information spattered everywhere.

Sharepoint is a great tool for storing data. Retrieving it however...

Having worked with it for 8 years, I can safely say, there's many things SharePoint does badly, but finding data is not one of them.

If you can't find it, you're doing it wrong.

It's also NOT a great place for "Storing" data, it's a great place for working on data.

Re: The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

Oh, very nice. Saving link and page so I can print and pass out. It's the way I do it as I worked on mission critical systems that can kill. By design as it was military for the most part. Healthcare too.

Holy shit this is serious

However your headline should read:

"Trend Micro AV exposes old school businesses still using SharePoint".

Sharepoint is very much 2007.
