The zoo bought some pc’s without microsft windows and when i got to install linux on it I spent a good ten minutes attempting to defeat tpm,secure boot and the windows boot manager for it had a virus on it called windows 10 *.
Quite why the fuck windows 10 has to talk to you and offers no shutdown during setup made me think of ransomware may be i think in original ways that this has never occurred to you before..
The bios really REALLY did not want me to remove the windows boot manager it kept going further and further down the list until it did get disabled – this reminding me of ransomware which happened to vista pc many years ago.
My linux on usb iso image although it worked on my usual device i wrote it to did not on the new pc. so i baked a cd image and that did, Once i installed the cdrom all was well with the universe and the ransomeware was gone from the disk..
In fact to remove the ransomware on that old pc i had to use a cd as well. Great to see microsoft learning from the crooks.
I repurposed the usb thing for the non gpl hardware drivers.
mafia run the british red cross
It is strange that harddisks come with mafia approved virusware on them automatically , however i did find out the screen was ok, and the sound card worked. Thanks to the mafia at Microsoft. Really wanted to not know that.
Here is a top tip: So if a new pc does not have sound you should return it to your retailer immediately after all microsoft have decided its defective.
I wonder what other spyware courtesy of crooks and governments (my blog) was on the disk until i repartitioned it.
*no key sticker from microsoft
In a boring moment here in the zoo i had a look at our virus config, i noticed that things had changed not too much but extra features could now be enabled. The source was updated but nothing necessary seemed needing a download.
I enabled a few things disabled in our version of the configuration file and tested – it mostly worked although some feature has extended rules but i will wait and see when a virus is detected to find if i need those extra commands.
As a non microsoft site its not really necessary to have a scanner but it is a good criteria for blocking bad hosts and stopping inbound crap.
You microsoft windows users do like living dangerously and i am all for it so continue your bravery with crap software..
also in beige
The zoo needed pc’s as some of them are well over ten years old and showing signs of hardware issues like forgetting the time** and being a bit slow with other regular seek human movements that persuaded the zoo to flash some cash on stuff..
Naturally i go to a site that i can buy to order rather than buy hp (my blog) or another brand get what we need without the crap copy of windows which is a lot cheaper than in stock and off the shelf from online retailers.
Deselecting windows 10 (my blog) resulted in the zoo shaving £100 off the bill (converted tp usd 130.00 at time i wrote this. So next time you wonder what you could do with an spare $130 makes using open source software a lot of sense.
mafia run microsoft
Apparently I also read that Microsoft are putting adverts everywhere in windows 10 so in addition to buying mafia insurance* from microsoft they also plaster adverts over it.
I am fascinated that people pay microsoft for this software via hardware vendors who i assume do it for laziness and some very shady microsoft sales staff.
Sure we have to install something on the hardware, but even windows needs setting up.
*nice shop window there, we will use it to sell your competitors products and spy on you. ** can break ssl.as websites will refuse to load if your bios believes its 1/1/1980
vbs email attachments is something the zoo has always blocked and there back with a vengeance.
Is there anything microsoft made that is not used by criminals? I mean it is like the mafia is in charge of development at microshit.
The zoo had a visiting professor with a presentation file on a usb thing which was ‘lost’. Strangely windows 10 did not deluge the user with messages or where the thing was mounted to.
Perhaps Microsofts (microshit) attempt at idiot proofing is still too difficult for manyof its users.
The zoo is a linux shop. We soon found the lost thing that visiting professor could not find.
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..
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 ?
Kkaran Bahree noted crook
I have in the past lamented the sad state of microsoft clients who it appears to be Nigerians wishing to donate billions of dollars to you and me are at home in the zoo.
One day i noticed that one set a spammers where using the newish microsoft ‘cloud’ which i believe is paid for rather than hotmail ‘free’.
At least they are paying microsoft after all free spam is not on is it 188.8.131.52/13. Lets hope they got paid rather than indicate a security hole in shit software.
I am happy to associate both scammer and microsoft as both shady and this evidence i once saw made me very happy and it proved it the collusion which i am sure somebody at microsoft sales will regret selling
I was very happy that day.
the stuffed monkey might have more sentience
For several months now it seems a baby who cannot live without a breathing machine and with doubts as to everything else too has been going the rounds in the courts.
Lawyers are expensive so i wonder who is paying these fees – everybody via the nhs ? There are charities involved here (my blog) and a rich one associated with the hospital who have screwed up of which there could be a long term conflict of interest..
I also wonder if the charity business is influencing the nhs aspect of this hospital for the bad publicity the case has brought them after all it does send the wrong message. If your thinking then the paradox of childrens hospital charity also funded by the nhs is another issue which is the more important. .
Residents of the uk are constantly being told there are issues with the nhs – however in this case with opposing charities fighting it out for a rare condition only one suffers from i just wonder what it is doing to the nhs who is paying – you indirectly ?.
Somehow it sounds very expensive and not an wise use of limited resources you keep getting told about.
While it would be nice to fix all issues perhaps the fighting between all parties on the outcome means you humans cant have nice things but the lawyers and rich charity bosses can and sod the cabbage needing the help..
Friends of the nhs
The nhs (my blog) is seen as a nice gravy train by firms like Oracle and Microsoft where there ‘products’ are not up to the job
Microsoft email is thoroughly shit there is the classic story of the large email list in the nhs that if anybody replies to all costs about £300,000.00 per email due to some ‘bug’ in exchange.
Ransomware is the latest find that exploits Microsoft failure to not defend against but since the exploit was known by both gchq and the nsa (my blog and not passed on you could argue that the government is ransoming itself by keeping mum.
I am not saying there is a perfect solution even assuming that this was not an inside job but it points the failure in any reasoning that Microsoft is enterprise software.
Since it is so insecure perhaps the people who buy Microsoft products should be given medals and awards by governments for allowing mass interception of data.
I am sure the management of the nhs would like that
The bbc does not like the internet even in programmes that do it for there subject while there motives might be pure it comes across as something else – hero worship of apple producrs or something like that.
The thing to ‘fud’ is a non apple secure email server ‘box’ made with a raspberry pi (my blog) and using ancient wheezy (my blog) and rightly so deserves to be called a scam as apple did not make it.
Take technical issues like …
End to end encryption is not possible nixed by nsa and gchq hundreds of interment years ago- you need a domain for ssl, not an ip address.
Port 25 blocking is another problem*, and the device had issues with cross site scripting.
This ‘secure email’ was presented as an impossible thing by the bbc – or lets not discuss the limitations or the hard aspects of internet security – however when you can achieve some of it with a proper email server and gnugpg which was not mentioned by the journalists of fud.at the bbc
As i am the ape who runs mail servers here in the zoo and probably does not know what i am doing the bbc forgets that while indeed the device is shit – proper mail servers can be achieved on certain terms..
However if the ‘nah no la laa laa atttitude’ continues the bbc could be argued is doing the bidding of both the nsa and gchq looking for those sensationalised headlines rather than the meat and potatoes of the issue.
The panacea in a box did need to be outed as shit but the bbc ‘s conclusion is one of which government propaganda is also in alignment with.
Gee fancy that
Whether facts are too hard (or boring) for the bbc to do is something for you to think on.
*you want spam?
