Also a bit of an embuggerance if you happen to be in Scunthorpe, Brown Willy in Cornwall or indeed Dicks Mount, Suffolk.
Never mind. Users can always switch to GitLab.
Oh, wait ..
Re: Leave it there
Wait till they find the golden fleece onboard ..
Come on opening an unlocked door is not breaking in.
"Breaking" doesn't actually require that anything be "broken" in terms of physical damage. Someone who has permission to enter part of a house, but not another part, commits a breaking and entering when they use any means to enter a room where they are not permitted.
Scenario: Capita's Uninvited eNforcement Team enters your home to see if you have a TV, is that illegal entry if you left your door open?
Re: What about the stuff that we really don't want...
If you had come to Windows 7 via the Windows Vista route then you would have fallen crying with relief at seeing Windows 7 install and start up.
3rd world countries must be laughing at our hypocrisy.
Nope, those are the ones hosting him and asking him to clean up the loo afterwards. Perhaps you should go round there and help him clean his loo? Stand firm, democracy needs you!
Re: And for the next trick...
No. Absolutely not. It would be totally unfair to expose a bot to Windows' code, the AI would be bound to remember what it was forced to do and many years later humanity would cease to exist as a result.
Re: The title is no longer required.
The litmus test would be to correct code that Linus Torvalds had pushed to build, abuse notwithstanding.
Traceable access Logs?
... content providers should keep logs of access for a period of six months to a year to guarantee the BBFC could trace “every age verification to its original source”. Of course, Ageify is developing such a solution and is "ready to showcase it whenever needed”.
I can just see the round-robin household letters where the BBFC demands to know who accessed www.kardashianswithdonkeys.com on such and such a date, just because they have a record of that IP in their access.log files.
Perhaps Capita might get the contract to enforce access ...
Re: "a jet aircraft without wings at those high speeds at 0 ft"
You can easily find Navy jets breaking the sound barrier very close to the surface - nice photos and vides of the compression waves are taken - so, really nothing impressive.
Sadly, not in the UK .. not even with the POS F-35
The use of open, peer-reviewed internet standards is strongly encouraged. Primarily applies to: Device Manufacturers, IoT Service Providers, Mobile Application Developers
Good luck with that one guys. "Peer Review" with that lot usually means "Oops, I just Peed all over your standards. Soz about that"
Devices and services should be configured such that personal data can easily be removed from them when there is a transfer of ownership, when the consumer wishes to delete it and/or when the consumer wishes to dispose of the device. Consumers should be given clear instructions on how to delete their personal data.
Tried that one with JLR (Jaguar Landrover Rangerover) recently, have you? Thought not.
Re: Doug Adams was right
Aren't you supposed too be able to fit the entire population of the Earth onto the Isle of Wight?
Yes. So long as you EITHER have good vertical stacking abilities OR decide upon Global Thermonuclear War as your game of choice ("Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?"). Post GTW you could probably fit most of the population of planet Earth on the Isle of Wight, with room to spare.
Re: When does the UK start sentencing people?
When are we going to see sentences for people who have been meddling in the UK's electoral processes?
I agree, but in all likelihood the stiffest sentence we would see from our noble judiciary would be along the lines of, "Now run along and don't be a naughty boy again". Then again, 6 months in choke in the USA seems to be almost that .. when compared against some of the sentences we have seen handed out in the USA for what appeared to be relatively minor crimes.
Well, Damian Green MP is a well-known downloader of pornography.

Re: Every one spies
FSB/KGB hated GRU with a passion as I recall from the 1980’s
Re: Every one spies
Not sure that is right. What we do "know" is that the Skripals were exchanged by direct order of Putin, in the trade for Anna Chapman et al (aka the Illegals Program). It seems highly unlikely therefore that Putin would then authorise anyone to kill Skripal, but it is conceivable that the GRU might try to kill Skripal to spite Putin in some way.
Either way, I don't think we should be worrying about a certain pair of GRU colonels for very long. I am sure they are about to find out how interesting it can be to count pine trees in Siberia.

Or just employ some ex Cambridge Analytica staff. They know how to say nice things such as, "Your data is perfectly safe with us" while meaning exactly the opposite.

Re: As you might expect...
One day I will move abroad and open a tearoom specifically so that when someone orders an espresso, I can pour them a cup of hot water and, perhaps a minute later, pass them a handful of coffee beans. See how they like it, the bastards.
Move to San José. They already do that there. It is called 'Designer Coffee'
Re: oh what a tangled 'web' we weave
Facebook staff said it appears no posts were made on users' behalf by the hackers, and that no credit card information was taken.

No, they just went for the insecure code in the British Airways site instead .. much easier to hack.
Re: "Are you affected by the outage? Leave us a comment and let us know."
C'mon El Reg, can't we have innuendo, such as "Has Alexa has gone down on you today?"
Wait a second
Do you really mean that the United Nations (?), that byword for incompetence, waste, lack of management or leadership and corruption, actually uses project management tools such as Jira?
I am sure it is simply that someone suggested that the UN could waste $1m on a JIra subscription and finance signed it off.

Not sure how much of that you could fit on the back of a condom packet ...
A small but vital message ...

"The influential Treasury Committee"
Surely an oxymoron there?
"It simply isn't good enough to expose customers to IT failures, including delays in paying bills and an inability to access their own money."
Quite. It makes it so hard for HMRC to lift customers' money directly out of their bank accounts when the bank is offline.

Does anyone else find the whole 'must get latest iPhone' rush more than a little bit disturbing?
These are the diehard fanbois you are talking about, so of course they must get the latest iPhone. I should think that many of them have been saving up their benefits and selling their food stamps for a whole year to get to this moment.
And the joy is that it all starts again once they have the latest glass phone in their hands.

Actually around 3 hours 25 minutes for Speedbird London to JFK, although they could do it (in 1996) in under 3 hours JFK to LHR, using the jetstream.

I still use the tried and tested mantra for all Capita scumbags who come knocking at the door:

Unless they really did buy the colour Magenta, it should perhaps be Magento?
Re: Ahhhh ... flashbacks to a holiday in France,
Me too. Dealing with SNCF/TER ‘apps’ = ‘give up. Go to automatic ticket machine. Select English option. Get tickets. Forget to validate tickets. Listen to lecture from supercilious conductor explaining how stupid English must remember to validate their tickets’

Re: re. Reporting a breach shows awareness
Read https://www.riskiq.com/blog/labs/magecart-british-airways-breach, especially the bit about how they detected it was in the modernizr.js library.
Now visit www.ba.com and follow these steps:
In your web browser right click and choose Inspect Element (IE and Safari you have to enable this)
Click Network and then JS and refresh the page.
Scroll down until you can see modernizr.js and click on it.

Implies that BA were aware of this on 23rd August and are now not telling the truth.
Re: re. Reporting a breach shows awareness
To me it is far more likely that they got hacked on 21st August and decided to cover up and say it was between 21st August and 5th September in order to avoid GDPR penalties for late disclosure.
