@vwdewaal Only if you’re determined to be obtuse. Neither @SwiftOnSecurity nor I have made any suggestion about “trust”. (Trust in what?)

Just as an aside, the fact that “Corrupted Nerds” is now on @spreaker should give you a clue as to what might be happening on Tuesday night.

@bengrubb @darrenpauli Yeah, that’s pretty much the best bit of the whole episode.

@khaxan @TableTopGeneral NP. I’m guessing it’ll be a day or two before Kaspersky’s people get back to me, what with weekends and timezones.

via TweetDeck in reply to khaxan

@khaxan @TableTopGeneral Dunno, but it’d be a huge competitive advantage to hold onto it, vs the usual industry knowledge-sharing. I’ll ask.

via TweetDeck in reply to khaxan

I have some meetings with Kaspersky Lab people coming up, so I hope I can find out more about that operation with the Dutch police.

via TweetDeck

@khaxan @TableTopGeneral Well, the page linked to is clear. The malware authors have been arrested, data obtained during that investigation.

via TweetDeck in reply to khaxan

The reason is what you might expect. “The ransomware authors are arrested and all existing keys have been added to our database.”

via TweetDeck

Interesting timeline too. 14 April: 711 keys. 29 April: 13 more keys. 28 October: All the rest of the keys, more than 14,000 of them.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @ResignInShame, “obtained” is such an excellent verb. HT @JGamblin @thegrugq for that last tweet too.

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, draft: Post-production of “Corrupted Nerds” podcast; plan out the next week; Weekly Wrap; bookkeeping; wine. That sounds OK, yes.

via TweetDeck

So, @BackgroundBrief was a fine overview of the NBN state of play. Some great money-shot quotes. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via TweetDeck

@Kviii NBN wouldn’t have owned the aircraft, but having an account and being able to get a flight on short notice is normal-ish.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kviii

@Kviii Indeed. And “access to” doesn’t mean that a particular trip would be authorised. Still, NBN did work where there’s no airline routes.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kviii

@Kviii Hmmm. “Syadmin” can be anything from a junior configuring routers to a network engineer at the executive level, which covers a lot.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kviii

@Kviii What sort of job, at what salary? “Lucrative” is relative, so I tend to skip contextless judgemental words like that.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kviii

Also good to be moving beyond the infantile “fibre good, copper bad” idiocy of cud-munching political tribalists. @BackgroundBrief

via TweetDeck

Great to hear real-world stories about the shit copper and seemingly arbitrary selection of who gets what NBN tech. @BackgroundBrief

via TweetDeck

That’s a tiny criticism of allowing non-technical people to make claims about causes, in an overall good episode. @BackgroundBrief

via TweetDeck

Most likely cause in high-density areas like Newtown is too many wi-fi networks on default channels. @BackgroundBrief

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Hmm. If wi-fi is bad but physical ethernet OK, the issue is wi-fi configuration, not the internet it’s connected to. @BackgroundBrief

via TweetDeck

If you’ve missed the start of @BackgroundBrief on the NBN, it’s now on the website too, for the streaming. abc.net.au/radionational/…
