(Washington Post)   Federal agencies including DHS have so utterly failed at network security that their networks get compromised because of uninstalled firewalls and default passwords that never get changed. That Obamacare website is safe, though, you can trust them   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 16

Molavian: a particular individual: Anyone who really believes liberals revere Obama as the Messiah is incapable of handling the reality of liberals' love of nuance and our ability to see the worlds in shades of gray instead of black and white as conservatives do.

So all liberals see the world in shades of gray and all conservatives see it in black and white?


Maybe.

lennavan: duffblue: Where do all the fark liberals hide when the countless articles criticising the administration are posted? The same people that tell everyone that our government has our best interests in mind seem to vanish when anything that casts their messiah or his administration in a negative light.

We don't hide, we also criticize the administration.  In those threads, we get incorrectly called "Republican" and/or "Conservative."

You're shiatting on the wrong people.  Biatch about the Democrats, not the liberals.  Liberals have plenty of beefs with this Administration.


I also eschew all the trappings and failings of identifying along party lines.
In my opinion if you choose to vote or agree to line up based on party affiliation you have already subjugated yourself and adopted a submissive and subservient posture. And that is just plain lame.

I would like to see all elections allow picking and choosing whomever you wish from whatever party and make it so that if they get elected and we end up with representatives from all over the party-line chart they have to serve together and learn to work together.

That said, I.T. wise, security is never a goal nor is it a task to be completed. It is a methodology and discipline.
And that requires a constant relearning and redoing of things. Exactly the type of work government does not like because of the ongoing costs and not having a neat and tidy end date.

Maybe those same liberals are agreeing with the article, but you can't believe that's possible, so you assume we're keeping silent. Anyone who really believes liberals revere Obama as the Messiah is incapable of handling the reality of liberals' love of nuance and our ability to see the worlds in shades of gray instead of black and white as conservatives do.

You need to highlight people who you think are Fark Libs in a certain color, this way, you'd see that they are indeed here, and you would have avoided making a stupid comment.

my password was a randomly created password given to with my first college email account.  i just never changed it from the random jibberish.

now, it was taken on special characters and caps and a few variables (characters I switch out).  i use code words to identify which iteration of the password to use.

but, i still can't ever remember my farking user name.

We are in our secret bunker underneath Soros World Domination HQ reading your posts, rolling our eyes and making rude noises.

csb: I have an account on a site designed and run by one of the largest gov't contractors, for the purpose of doing government work.  It has a pw policy that it enforces, which is pretty good.

HOWEVER, click the "forgot password" link and you get your choice of 1 of 3 questions.  For example: What's the name of your pet? What color is your car? etc.  Stuff that you can easily find out on someone's social media pages.

A system installed at my job recently had the default PW as Joshua

The admin of the campus when I was in college claimed "Joshua" was always in the top ten of passwords. This was the mid-late 90's so this was the generation that grew up with Wargames.
