Play it again Susan Mauldin

Equifax famous for data breaches hired a music major to be head of computer security – apparently she knows sod al about computers. Another computer in equiifax could have been accessed with default Microsoft credentials admin/password.

For a credit agency equifax she knows the tunes shame about the security. The drop in share value it appears was the only reason this non technical computer security person was fired rather than knowing there job or getting somebody to patch them.

Oracle (my bllog) might also be due some blame but then again if a security note from March [it is september now seven months later writing this] was never acted upon by either means these credit experts and computer experts [oracle] with data on you are nothing of the sort.

a woman

I am not sure how composing music makes you a top technical management talent but that’s me a monkey in the zoo thinking on stuff.  Somebody got fired for buying Oracle a result in my humble opinion.

Lets hope that message gets passed around.   I hope equifax demand a refund from Oracle as what the fuck would a music grad know about computer security.

Leaky american security sources

clapper knows

I note that once again the security services in the us (america) are once again sharing stuff that they did not discover. but there ‘friends’ did.  I was party to this when Robert Soloway who was something of a retard helped set precedent the can-spam law some billions of internet years ago.. I wont bother you with the details and i was happy overall i guess some law enforcement person got a benefit from leaking the information although the mainstream media copy and pasted rather than reported..

Whether the information was intercepted or shared directly by the manchester police is an interesting question to ponder.

However since it was a ‘religion of peace’ (my blog) activity, the mental health issue that our lords and masters try and use to say it was not islam is the greatest at killing children is now a moot point. I bet there is a huge celebration in Saudi Arabia that they helped kill twenty plus unbelievers

Overall it appears to have /dev/nulled the election and there are no scheduled childrens parties (my blog) happening.

It also adds questions to both mainstream parties look weak as questions they dont want to answer and have a past with come once again to light.

This was a useful leak as it put certain multicultural failings as fact rather than spin a lie.


The car key

keyBananas has been watching a youtube channel in which the ‘secure’ individual key has been diminished by as this authorised agent tries various keys to find he has one that opens doors and switches on the car.  Most of these cars are american made but it does raise a question.

European cars seem more secure provided you cannot sniff the wireless protocol.

In England the Metropolitan police here London once ‘lost’ a set of universal car keys in the past and these where known to have entered criminal society.

I guess with enough patience and a vin a spare set of keys could be easily made.

Think about it.

conspiracy schemes and tin foil

Bananas reads that the cia can hack televisions* (my blog), phones,routers,microsoft (including there rubbish cloud) and most probably amazon echo or the google home thing.  Now while it probably resulted in a lot of tv’s being switched off yesterday at the plug as many humans bought these things with recording devices – saving power too!.

Quite what is the sane reason why you want Jeff Bezo’s in your house listening in to start with and who sells you stuff on top of the cost of the thing via it is another matter, although i am sure Mr Bezo’s is an interesting in person as a dinner guest**

Your average new tv is more computer than tv nowadays however i think us apes are fairly cia proof with our phones that you cannot buy any more and other things i have done which your have to read the blog to discover.  You too can be cia proof (bulk internet interception would be needed rather than device compromised) but the tinfoil hats are optional.

Can you blame the application markets – maybe, does a tv need a microphone no, and why did lg televisons still send data back to lg even when people did not agree to that feature illustrates that privacy is not something even the device makers respect so why would a spy.

bomb russia i say

What perhaps is the best is the fact the americans can blame others here instead of themselves – we all hear fake news about it was the North Koreans, or it was Russia when it appears the “good” guys are instigating some of this stuff.

It appears our friends at Booz Allen Hamilton are once again key to this release but when your both a serving officer and a boss of an outsourcer yet another leak (my blog) is proof positive your doing a great job and that small government really works.

While water remains wet quite where this leaves mass media is another point, the mass media did not look for this scoop and probably would have rejected it if they ever had been offered it and they would love you misinform you to push its narrative be it right or left.  Thank you wikileaks

To begin you can find tin foil in the kitchen.

Orwellian dystopia in the bestselling list – or prole problems

Eric Blair

Eric Blair

Nineteen eighty four (1984) is a fine book that can apply to both left and right wing politics a point lost on many.  I am a fan of Orwell (my blog) and own the complete volumes of his writing which is well worth reading.

I pity the left wing in the US if only now they are they finally reading 1984 by George Orwell or fail to grasp it’s point other than there candidate* should have won. ‘Beware of the wrong boogeyman’ brand politics have been a mainstay of politicians since 1919.

But that’s there problem not mine if the proles who can only vote for only two parties cannot see things.  I could bore you further but i will not for a Democrat (my blog) could also be big brother too.

But that’s the proles for you.

*The Clintons (my blog) are very rich

What is the fuss about this clinton’s email server about

Bananas runs the zoo’s email servers which could be described as ‘private’ and since the zoo does not use a free webmail service like many and i have heard these ‘private things’ described in withering terms by media types which is curious considering many of those professionals have an @<msm> address.

The difference between personal server and a ‘normal’ email server is nothing they both speak the same commands via a protocol.  Here configuration matters and they can do limited ssl encryption, the nsa decided that ip to ip encryption was a no way a long time ago, as to key sizes well you can also blame them too.

Government email is clunky and not very modern but secure if limited – try and read email on a mobile phone and your probably be told there’s no web/app interface for your phone.  Which is why the Clintons and Powell had there own.  An example i think is required

anti gay toilet in Sochi Russia

anti gay toilet in Sochi Russia

Plumpergeddon (my blog) had images time stamped of this laptop thief but the polices system could not handle it hence why the Clintons had a private server unsecured in a toilet area.

Email is basic its mostly to from subject and body text, The body bit is where clinton’s screwed up. Body is either text or documents stored and accessed via a login, and it cannot differentiate between secret stuff and pizza orders.

Its not the email servers fault it just delivers the stuff and the storage is handled by something else say some sort of pop3 or imap speaking thing.

Your average email server (including gmail) can’t distinguish between a joke like why did the chicken cross the road, and a document with the nuclear launch codes that is not a mode of operation most email things need to handle.

Personal, government and normal email servers rely on login credentials , rules and plumbing (not water based but its still plumbing)  so that things like dmarc, dkim and spf work to fix email and without those anybody could spoof email as Hillary Clinton.

The problem here is not the email server, but the laziness of content going into it and that’s a human problem not the email servers. If government won’t use user friendly software that’s not the email servers fault that the Clintons opened themselves into these hacking allegations..

Since both republicans and democrats have used personal servers one could argue that both abused the law, however Clinton did not get away with it.

Email is leaky by design and there’s enough muck to smear on Clinton without the email ‘problems’  I guess that Podestra’s email all went through a nsa filter and its up to you to guess how that got made public but that’s the internet for you.

Phones and internet are leaky – how do you know that you have never been connected to a fake cell phone tower, or been intercepted that is not emails problem but the problem of Clinton and her politician friends who give intelligence agencies the cart blanc freedom to hack all including her.

Don’t blame the computer, blame the human for shit information security. Email and phones are as good as the spies want it to be,

The freedom fighter vs the tyrant.

cheFidel Castro died recently and the mainstream media are playing catchup as usual as to was he a friend or a foe?

Since Cuba (my blog) before his rule could be described as criminal (as in the mafia dont exist (my blog) say the fbi) he must be a friend to law and order? But then the msm point out his human rights problem. However If you look at Milton Freidman’s legacy (my blog) as a ‘solution’ for cuba from the american’s then many south american countries have had there dictators and human rights problems – Argentina being famed for throwing people out of airplanes without parachutes for free*. It is interesting that one sins are ignored if your in the us sphere of influence.  So does that mean it is ok for Argentina to give away free skydiving trips?

ejhooverSuch ground was covered in star treks deep space nine (my blog) and the change from terrorism to being in power a sub story.

Politics has killed many both on the left and on the right wings, Castro was a reaction to the negative aspects of american foreign policy.

Cuba today is now a trading partner of China so neither Russia or the US can claim it as a new trade region.

Evicted,Matthew Desmond

innercityisbn: 9790241260852 sounded interesting one january and seven months later it turned up for reasons i will not bore you with but entail a library.

The book set in Milwaukee deals with housing but has a social worker  aspect to it.  This is unfortunate although single parent families and ethnic groups losers feature although there are winners which come from the same ethnic groups too.

Bankers are mentioned although ‘small government’ and both complicity by the left and right wing means it does not really stick as a criticism after all blaming bankers for housing supply a job abrogated to them by politicians and voters who can only vote that way so since 2008 is perhaps easy finger pointing like this (my blog).

I prefer David Simon (my blog) for what it is worth.  All races get a look in although i think its treading on eggshells as the author is more honest with some than others as to situation.  All are in the same situation.

That said – the cities relationship with ‘cheap’ housing is odd, not liking the drain on services but since they are not supporting these people either it seems that slum landlords and tenants are not liked but barely tolerated by the politcal class.

Apart from folk tales there is little of interest here economics wise and  i never got past page 100 for the rehash of the same old story told with a variant.

The publishers ‘helpful’ review* (my blog) comment on the front (i use a library so not seen) seemed slightly racist but i will throw that in with the territory.

So local government won’t build, private renters dont get paid rent, then evict tennants, the local government dislikes non building code structures is a race to the bottom in the making.   Red and Blue politics is so fucked up.

1/5 bananas.

* best book evar yay!!!!!!!



Unknown ‘classics’

emptylibraryI had never heard of Carson McCullers, whom is some sort of american writer until a singer (my blog) mentioned it/her/him no i have not investigated that aspect. Oddly the library system had a couple of ‘modern classics’ local-ish but not horridly expensive to read in austerity britian.

Thought public libraries where free ? No there not.

So i discovered that i am still poorly read despite this probably the first time you may even have heard of the name.

I guess those publishers get to call you retarded too.

chavIf like me you too have not read this author then i hope to see you at chavs anonymous as well.
