tsk tsk tsk, the silliest security breach at Apple.com

ArsTechnica - Marko Karppinen, CEO of the MK&C development house out of Helsinki, Finland, had his account password and login changed at the request of someone that wasn't him. What did it take to get around Apple's strenuous security protocols for this type of thing? This well-crafted letter:

"am forget my password of mac,did you give me password on new email marko.[redacted]@yahoo.com"

Of course, after that kind of sweet talk, the account info was handed right over, much to the chagrin of the actual Marko. With just this one slip-up, Apple compromised his e-mail, iDisk, .Mac syncs, credit card details, iTunes Store account, ADC Premier membership, and his iPhone Developer Program details. The Premier membership alone is worth around $3,000.


Would you get a Mac account now?

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
