Re: Talk Talk hack: Are you affected?

From what Talk Talk are revealing (like pulling teeth) passwords weren't at all encrypted, which is an oversight of the most ludicrous credibility. I always suspected they were a budget, stack em high, operation, but never imagined they could be so easily compromised. I suppose that's exactly the ta...

Re: Talk Talk hack: Are you affected?

+1 to all of the above. Unfortunately people still use their wives maiden name and their d.o.b. As passwords, which makes things infinitely easier for even the most amateur of hackers.

Re: Talk Talk hack: Are you affected?

You need only two pieces of ID to open an account: a domestic utility bill (very easily knocked up) and a photographic ID, (I believe even an original (fake) birth certificate will do). With the cornucopia of data stolen (in alleged unencrypted form) producing both of these documents would be childs...

Re: Talk Talk hack: Are you affected?

I'm still suffering from a PayPal hack from last year. This caused the account to be permanently locked, the associated bank account blocked for three months and a loss (to me) of £1270. It took ten months to get the money back from PayPal and my bank STILL monitors incoming and outgoing transaction...

The company has not specified exactly what data was stolen from its servers, but says that the systems accessed contained information including: • Credit card and bank account details • Full Name • Postal addresses • Dates of birth • Email addresses • Telephone numbers • TalkTalk account information...

Germany to Push for Compulsory EU immigration quotas

Merkel is going ahead with plan to make every EU country take minimum quotas of Middle East refugees, the Germans don't seem to think it fair they must share disproportionate burden:

Re: English votes for English laws

Edit as Y@H got in before me, my post was referring to Bob That would be the fairest way. Get rid of the Lords, have three devolved governments and Westminster as the upper house. As it is all I see is a supposedly unionist party pushing us, in Scotland, further and further into independence. I saw...

Re: English votes for English laws

Re: English votes for English laws

The problem with English votes for English Laws is that it's the Parliament of Great Britain. With 59 Scottish MPs (almost 10% of the total number of MPs) who wouldn't feel rigthly aggrieved at such a cynical proposal. The last time I looked we were still a United kingdom. Which means I can travel a...

Re: English votes for English laws

The Scots MPs have had a self imposed moratorium on voting English only issues and have exercised this abstention for many years now. Just some more tragic flag waving before they try and force EU/Out referendum down the gullet of the British public. A referendum almost no one wants and even less ar...

Re: Tyres leaving rims

I've seen this on 32mm tyres trying to get on with a 25mm specific rim. The tyres were forever popping off, once in quite a dangerous downhill situation. I'd try 25's. Continental are usually a good tight fit in most rims, might ease your anxiety a bit :roll:

Re: Tax Credits, the new war on the poor?

I'd means test the living daylights out if the wealthy. Up post, someone is boasting about spending their winter heating allowance on a posh dinner at an equally posh restaurant. That's got to stop immediately. It's fraud by any other name. If you don't need the money, have the decency to give it ba...
