  1. Quite. Good end point device security should thwart this but is suspect home personal computers may not be as well protected and Friday the 13th turns into a real nightmare
  2. The payload is most often delivered by email with a link to a website or a video file. Video files are popular because you have to click to see. Human nature is more likely to want to click a video file than a link to elsewhere. Of course, payloads can be other routes. I have seen a mass produced SD card carry malware from production, that was worrying. The current ransomware is a variant which is protected by previous Microsoft updates and amended av dat files but a mcafee updated dat file was made available yesterday afternoon, not sure about other av vendors but I suspect they will have offered something similar.
  3. We use a watering can when not near water
  4. If you have lost all trust and respect for the forum, perhaps you should look to contribute on a different forum, happy to help cancel your account if that is what you want.
  5. Just been to the glassboat, poor. The Ox is same price and way, way better. To add, I am in Bristol every week, almost, even though I live in the Midlands and my daughter is at Bristol Uni
  6. Remember, you are not moving the whole grease from one end to the other, just forcing out what is already there.
  7. Democratic
  8. The best bar in Bristol is the Volunteer behind the Future Inn Hotel just off Cabot Circus. Don't go to the other pub, the royal naval.
  9. Shocking!
  10. BA

    Believe me, it's not uncommon. For one of our services we run AAA (active, active, active) that's three mirrored sites operating as live with capability to run on one site if needed, that's the cloud for ya. If BA had done that they would not be making the news. Hacking is possible but they would have had to notify potential personal data loss and that would have made public news. No, simple money saving and the lead for IT at BA should be wetting their pants if BA own the hardware and architecture design and the lead for IT had not mitigated the risk by having the board own it. edited to add I bet they did not test the back up solution either by failing over to it.
  11. BA

    Most likely main system went down through powere outage, UPS failed and then they will have multiple VM and server failures. No real time load balanced mirroring from two or more sites and hey presto, you get a BA.
  12. Welcome Boaty
  13. Welcome. Search on the forum first, a vast array of answers. This is a common question and many have differing views. If you just want simple on device data and not much tethering, then I would use the three all you can eat data sim only contract. It also gives 12 gb tethering and costs about £22 per month on a 12 month contract or about £28 on a month by month contract.
  14. Torture
  15. Only on river sections
