@RealNickHodge Have you ever read the “dress code” for @VirginAustralia? “Thongs are acceptable”, it says. NO THEY ARE FUCKING WELL NOT.

As far as I understand it, @jonoabroad, eHealth records are what let anyone look up the STD results of politicians from their home PC.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

via Janetter for Mac

So from 1 July we’ve all been ready to rock’n’roll with eHealth records, right @nibhealthfunds? I. Want. To. Cry. Now.

@nibhealthfunds HAHAHAHA! “Our system deliberately prevents strong passwords because we don’t need strong passwords.” @chrisbrownie @mukimu

Possibly my concept of “helping” needs refinement.

via Janetter for Mac

So is “abraxas” the Greek word for “forced sodomy” or what? (There, Anonymous, don’t say I don’t ever help.)

@NewtonMark I presume the ACCC assumes “investment” means “profit”, in some narrow meaning. Like the government investing in our children.

NewtonMark I think this means that innovation in funding models is not welcome in Australia. Run crowdfunding offshore instead. arseh.at/1vds

MM: Scanned Fortune 500 plus 178 popular websites, 40% had client-side JavaScript vulnerabilities. Usually 3rd-party code.

Vulnerability counts are down from last year? So are we counting Android in its entirety as “1”?

via Janetter for Mac

So many muffins, so little time.

via Janetter for Mac

Did I mention second breakfast?

via Janetter for Mac

March/April 2011, SQLSlammer attacks suddenly dropped. Did a good guy hacker clean up the systems doing the attacks?

via Janetter for Mac

MM: “Commercial malware kits are a huge problem that most organisations are not equipped to deal with.”

@commuter_dirge @intrepidfear @techAU @corduroy Thanks, guys. And of course it’s now just finished reindexing after the drive anyway. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

@DDrazic But I certainly agree that what I learn about security itself happens elsewhere. You’re not the audience for this. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DDrazic

@DDrazic Part of what I do is decode and comment upon corporate messaging about security. It’s what most people see, not technical facts.

Now he cruises the fruit buffet like it’s a pickup bar, swaggering as he passes the freshly sliced kiwifruit. A belch ruins the effect.

He chews his breakfast as if it’s the bones of a mortal enemy and he has but five seconds to live. Milk dribbles from one side of his mouth.
