Quote of The Day

“What was the second language, after English, that everyone spoke in “Firefly”?

Science fiction or science pre-history.”

From comments here.

About This from The Washington Times:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has listed two Chinese government-related telecommunications companies as approved suppliers for companies taking part in the Obama administration’s multibillion-dollar program to expand broadband Internet service around the country.

Huawei Technologies and ZTE, both state-owned Chinese firms, were included in a USDA list of safe and approved telecommunications equipment providers for the broadband expansion program. Both companies were the target of a letter from six members of Congress that was sent to President Obama on Monday warning that there are significant risks to U.S. computer network security from security gaps in the broadband initiative. China is viewed as one of the most aggressive nation-states engaged in international hacking. Last year, Google pulled its operations out of mainland China after a sophisticated cyber-attack against it and other U.S. companies.

    99% of the attacks against my facility come from two locations. Take a wild guess what country those two locations are in. All of our network security is focused on just them. Yes, I work for Epsilon, the ones with the massive data breach on March 30th.

    Thanks, Joe. Now I know who, in particular, to blame for that hacking notice I got. As for the original post, we see a bug, obambi sees a feature.

  3. Joe Says:

    I wouldn’t go blaming the Chinese just yet. We are pretty good at blocking their asses. Not at liberty to discuss what happened but will soon.

  4. stevec Says:

    LOL, no Joe, I meant blaming you personally for the Epsilon breach!

  5. Joe Says:

    LMAO. My wife blames me for everything too. To include snow and rain, so no biggie if you want to blame me.

    Joe, I’m really interested in this topic. We gotta sit down some time so I can listen to what you have to say.
