You guessed it; another note on ‘cyber’security, rounding up a couple of ideas that floated by recently.
Which was triggered by this Comment. No, no, not a comment on this blog, don’t be stupid to assume that there has ever been one [rounded up].
Which made me think of actual developments in ‘cyber’ altogether [dammit, readstudy the original and see how much more profound the idea was, and how kindergarten the latter-day application to IT is]. And made me want to coin the term Cut The Crap. There’s the TL;DR for you.
And an intermission pic, since regularity is dulling you too much already [see below] and you read that as cDc which is beyond me:

Oh, and on a sideways note: This G thing (also, here) isn’t the only situation where all the onus is put on – mostly – clueless end users; unsure however that the other one, F, breaches GDPR as deeply as this where indefinite, into-infinity storage of your personal data is default.
That’s all for your afternoon studies. Now, spend the rest of the day applying the above, for a better tomorrow.
Hey, you had your pic of the day now off you go…
