@MylesPeterson Thank you. I’m trying to build a library (a bit grand?) of useful metaphors for explaining infosec stuff. @JLLLOW

@peterhau Gosh, there’s a lot out there about Flame, even a Wikipedia page, but in short a module espionage worm. Like many others.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to peterhau

There’s something slightly fraudulent about this entire thing.

Me at @crikey_news: “America opens new front against Iran … online”, about Stuxnet. Also mentions Flame wormcrikey.com.au/2012/06/04/ame…dz

Christ! It’s not even just “leverage”, but “works with the power of [REDACTED] to leverage”. HANG YOUR FUCKING HEADS IN SHAME, PEOPLE!

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, @infoholic, and every single occurrence could be replaced with the word “use”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to infoholic

RT @infoholic: Leverage (v): To utilize a resource. A list of the worst business jargon would be incomplete without it. bit.ly/LoBKPd

via Janetter for Mac in reply to infoholic

FFS, people who draw salaries as (allegedly) professional communicators and then produce a stream of endless fucking clichés? Fraudsters.

via Janetter for Mac

DEAR TECHNOLOGY PR PEOPLE, EVERY TIME YOU USE THE WORD “LEVERAGE” I THINK EVEN LESS OF YOUR WORTH AS A MEMBER OF HUMAN SOCIETY.

“An ideology is a set of ideas that constitute one’s goals, expectations, and actions.” But Anarchists probably see dictionaries as fascism.

Story filed for @crikey_news. Yay. Main pressure gone. Now there’s just some research for this evening’s discussion. stilgherrian.com/internet/on-mo…

As deadline approaches, I’m geting the story written using that age-old technique of making cups of coffee and wandering around the house.

benpobjie The first rule of mummy blogging is that you do not talk about mummy blogging. The second rule is something gross about perineums.

@mukimu @dobes Kaspersk Lab tells me they’ve got another round of spin, sorry, “special announcement of new Flame research results” today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

Did you see, @dobes @mukimu? Symantec reckon the Flame worm is “like using an atomic weapon to crack a nut”. telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews…

@mukimu I see the cyberweapon / cyberwar bullshit is causing you a little angst as well? Maybe we should start a twibbon campaign.

Uhoh. This episode of “Patch Monday” that I’m finalising right now seems ot be morphing into “The 9pm Edict”. Must. Calm. Down.

One way or another, you will suffer for the way I feel right now.

@GLComputing So, you know what the word “hyperbnole” means? That.

@johnthelutheran Turn to those people and, in a loud, clear and reassuring voice, ask “What the fuck is wrong with you?”

@ForsakenDAemon Well, the brain worms do have a certain appeal. But then what does that say about either of us?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ForsakenDAemon

Dear Sydney, turning your city’s heart into a colouring book isn’t “art”, it’s crass and cheapens life for everyone. Make it stop.

via Janetter for Mac

So it’s 0615 and I’m watching video of people having worms removed from their brains. Some people have “careers”. This is what I have.

@AbrasiveTeapot @ViliLe “Lawsuits designed to stop the public asserting their rights with no legal basis” has an acronym? Alas, dunno.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AbrasiveTeapot

Disgruntled. Confused. And yet at another level, rather relieved. This will be a distinctly strange Monday.

via Janetter for Mac

Hello, Monday. You will be beginning with a burst of urgent-ish work, and ending with a Full Moon. Please behave yourself.
