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.

Microsofts very bad telephone lines

Kkaran Bahree indian thief

An Indian called ‘dave’ rang the monkey house and told us our non existent*** Microsoft pc is telling him it has errors.  I was naturally overjoyed to hear this this great news about this problem.

So being a nice monkey who values retards who give us good news i decided to waste six minutes of his time after all Microsoft employees and partners clearly should be thanked for this kind of work i mean we did not know we even had a microsoft os running on computer

There was more hiss* (my blog) than dave who cannot comprehend that a phone might be a computer – big brown beige computers are suppose still a thing somewhere i guess..

Crook

Since i was unwilling to find this non existing pc in the monkey house, and knowing that the phone (my blog) was fine as I asked if the phone had a problem and as it was not a computer and so not sending errors the Indian called dave blocked the non existent windows computer from sending errors for free.

A solution that suited us perfectly, but they dont have to waste our time by phoning us next time.

Thank you Microsoft** you and your crooked partners.(my blog) you did good today – keep up this stellar work

*a pun ** aka Microshit *** Schroedingers cat might mean it could exist i suppose – anybody have a box ?

Cancer charity scams

Meet Wendy Watson MBE (not here) of National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline

Since 2012, the charity’s accounts also show that as little as 2.8% of annual donations has been spent on “charitable activities”, such as running the helpline

No wonder there is no cure for any cancer, its a nice little owner for Wendy Watson and ilk for the pink trademark as well, after all if you cure something you dont need scam artists like Watson MBE.

Think about it.

phone [pots] call blockers are ugly

If you get me on the phone here in the monkey house then it is the last resort, and i am once again getting complaints about scammy calls from india from people like Kharan Bahree (my blog) down the bush telegraph eg can i fix it by concerned zoo employees..

Fortunately our non existent microsoft windows infrastructure has been totally disabled by indians who work for embrace extend and extinguish Microsoft (my blog) and we have yet to notice it with there magic computer things detecting stuff* which cost the zoo nothing in them helping us.  There is a value judgement on indian businesses there if your not paying attention.

launch missiles and block telephone scammers

So i got called in to the zoo to discuss call blockers which look damm fucking ugly and look good in the oval office for missile launching.  Our dect phone system is a varied mix of versions some can do some things and others not mean questions that your average call blocker seems not to have.

I decide to find out and discover caller id is needed and it does work across dect handsets which is nice as it means no changing handsets.  I am dubious to the claim that one blocker is needed for two base stations but hey that’s me and a look through ‘technical’ documentation was the one fib i caught from the online chat.

Anyhow that’s the lowdown and its now up to zoo to decide now.  I would rather not have to install a new dect system but i think it is the only option.

I hate phone systems.- mind you since microsoft make shit products it is not surprising that there sewage goes everywhere even to copper phone networks

*eg lets rip off the zoo

Nasty shit on an andriod phone

I was ‘attempting’ to browse web pages not via google on a lollipop (andriod) phone and not having much luck and got an pop up offer for two free phones for an iphone and a samsung* – although it picked up the make and our zoo’s isp i thought this advertising pretending to be our isp was very extremely scam-my.

One offer with a countdown had expired , and they assumed that our location was also wrong. My view of the iphone is on record (my blog) so not I do not wish to join the retards who own a iphone.  I had to terminate the browser as the advert was not designed for mobile phones

So i decided to ring our isp and ask them if these offers where real and got a definite no as i expected.Our user equipment was not to blame but the settings (or lack of them) as a new phone.

Randall Rothenburg bat shit insane

There are people who think ad-blockers are bad (my blog) but perhaps scamming people via popups is good for them.  I suppose thats a judgement call

Anyhow i failed to browse web pages on a android phone or even bookmark a page, however it appears lollipop definety needs an adblocker..

The more i observe i conclude that Randall Rothernburg should be assessed for his mental health since he appears to be missing a lot of screws.

Anyhow it was an interesting look at the ethics of the internet advertising board of which seem lacking.

When Copyright does not create (AEPI )

pirate

greek and proud of it

Copyright is supposed to make creative stuff pay, patents too have there issues (using a hyperlink) so i was amused to hear about AEPI  which is an organisation that collects fees and issues them to artists in Greece (my blog).

AEPI (not here)  made some greek’s rich, but as to paying copyright owners there in debt to €42 million euro’s

So copyright it seems does not promote creativity, you shall be glad to hear that the organisers collected the money but then gave it to themselves because who gives a stuff about to artists.

So next time somebody says copyright works (and they will be a politician) please remember our Greek friends to aiding culture.

opendmarc reporting and extended thoughts

thxI decided to install some very crappy software to get dmarc reporting (my blog) working and adapted a script to suit from a blog,  it works you import, report and expire the db.

This is week long plus blog post so i may contradict myself the longer i document stuff.

However with stuff inbound to the database i got no email reports out which i can assume is due to either an error on my part, the policy not to bother them with strict compliance or the software is broken.

A brainwave I had on exploring this was that as a low traffic host (the zoo is not gmail) that email we do get is strictly controlled by rules where gmail i guess might be lax on say spam where as we are not.

So most of the email dealt with needs no dmarc action.

I will run the import , report and expire once a day and see if dmarc reporting via opendmarc is worthwhile.

Later on with reports being sent i observed some issues…

Dmarc can be abused by marketing people, and it depends on who runs the report address they specified take pure360.com.

It is amusing to note that they also use gmail.

So dmarc might mismanaged by some who might know better.  Does this mean pure360.com dmarc should be ignored? what do you think.

Another retard with dmarc did the below humorous issue – Please note this was collected by dmarc, and sent by dmarc it is not a typo error by a human.

rua@rac.co.uk

These appear to go hours and hours later that is getting the dmarc report back (rac do send spam) and piss off hosts when it reports back – Oh to be a mind reader.

Yet another brainwave i had was that there is no way to block ‘pfishing’ emails via opendkmarc unless there is a strict policy setup.  Unless you search headers for dmarc rules but thats down to the mta or spambotter not opendmarc.  There is an example below.

Routing loops could be a problem – ala i send mail, they send mail, we mail back etc.  Have to see on that one.  I guess you could turn off reporting which kind of makes dmarc reporting an odd idea to start with.

In the real world i found out:

If you do not import messages into sql and then close down opendmarc (say for an kernel upgrade) then opendmarc deletes the text file is one bug i noticed – not an end of the world issue but occasional one.

Another bug i noticed in 1.3.0 release (1.3.2 is debian experimental) is that opendmarc-reports will still send email out even if you had a typo in the address or email set in script (the zoo has four domains)

I noticed as our dkim signing did not initiate when it should have (my typo).

The sql data is stored although its not designed for humans to read, the xml reports which it makes and we also get from others as the zoo has dmarc are more human readable.

Microsoft (microshit) are pretty crap at dmarc -there reports leave a lot to be desired due to \n issues.

They also bounce failure – this is pure microshit in action. I perceive this as bit spammy.  It took a little time to sanitize here.

Typical crap from microsoft, it was spamcop proof too

Criminals also have odd dmarc setups an good example is quantumaccountingservices . net which is scammy* returned at time of wtiting

Host not found, try again

So i guess your going to get a lot of domains to ignore.

A problem i have is with multiple domain reporting (say mail.zoo mail.zoo1 etc). In the debian 1.3.0 version the first report run for mail.zoo has all the fun the other opendmarc report scripts run but have nothing to report on.  That might be a level of complexity most with one domain and one host never get to see or care about and might be down to the shit sql server it uses.

My adsp and atps lines in dns needed some tweaking since reporting uses port 25 and i use the other port for outbound mail which for over a week i failed to comprehend so this might be a postfix / amavis or some other issue i cannot resolve currently.

The zoo will not be sending reports until we figure out adsp (my blog) even though the sql import and expire work

opendmarc-spam looks interesting although a thought experiment needing a look at source code to guess how it works

That’s about it for opendmarc reporting. Tomorrow I will be delving into the science of mind reading** after all it appears to be a required skill with dmarc.

Karen Matthews versus the McCann’s

Karen Matthews a victim of Harry potters sucess

Karen Matthews a victim of Harry potters sucess

I read that this news item (my blog) from 2008 has now made it to television as a drama.  If you have not being paying attention ‘our Karen’ decided to do a McCann of whom is still missing (probably here) and lost there child in Portugal in an evening.

Apparently the good people of Dewsbury are featured for trying to find the ‘lost’ who would naturally be returned when magic money from Hogwarts was offered.as an reward but not the class divide, or the famous author with the magic money at Gringots*.  Both the McCann’s and the Portuguese authorities have made great use of the libel courts to suppress there story, or let it be known since the truth here means somebody is guilty after all that kind of thing does not happen every day.

Eventually the police found Shannon Matthews and friends confessed to the scam.

Karen Matthews is guilty but i wonder when the McCann story will get a drama made.  Somehow i think not.  Shall we call it selective censorship?

*not a harry potter fan but i think that’s how you spell it

Gay footballers and Crewe Alexandra

Vinny Jones the balls grabber

Vinny Jones the balls grabber

Barry Bennell liked children and as a football scout at Crewe Alexandra had the means to do as he pleased.

There are not a lot of gay footballers in the professional leagues even today – they usually quit and then said something via a great niece i doubt there where any in 1998.

It is 2016 and only now is this case getting msm attention.  I do not give a stuff about football but it would appear there be more gay footballers back then than there are today.

It feels like a cover up and collusion to ignore bad news after all professional footballers must conform to some rules as prescribed by football society.

I am not saying it is ok.  But you might think something is fishy both in media and football circles.
