    One thing does not circumvent the other necessarily, it's a choice or ignorance, and near-do-wells taking advantage of the unwary.

    You don't get off that easily, you are in control, giving up is not an option. :)
    Those are not "pay-off's" for allowing yourself to be taken advantage of. Those things are all a matter of fact completely unaligned with giving up on your privacy when designed to protect it.

    It's all configurable, demand your privacy, demand the designs to provide it.

    It's a simple equation, do the math, and don't give in so easily. :)

    Someone testing their weapons ?

    "A number of major US newspapers -- including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal and New York Times -- have been hit by a cyberattack that is said to originate from another country"

    Yossi Appleboum on How Bloomberg is Positioning His Research Against Supermicro
    https://www.servethehome.com/yossi-...-positioning-his-research-against-supermicro/
    [​IMG]
    Today, Bloomberg upped the stakes in its contentious story around Chinese tampering of Supermicro hardware, citing Yossi Appleboum CEO of Sepio Systems. Here is that story. I reached out to Mr. Appleboum for comment via telephone. Whereas the Bloomberg story singles out Supermicro servers, Mr. Appleboum’s sentiment is that this is an industrywide issue. Other very large server and networking manufacturers are certainly impacted, perhaps more so. He also stated that as an industry, or a society, we have two options: we go with the narrative that a US company, Supermicro, is the only one impacted as the Bloomberg reporting suggests, or we recognize that this is a persistent threat that impacts the entire hardware supply chain that underpins the lynchpin communications infrastructure of our global economy.
