No rules about speeding on the LSE boards Freya.

Of course speeding is not dangerous - not like the other things that we read on this board we should all be terrified of.

Only 24,000 were killed across Europe in road traffic accidents in 2015 - and around 4 times that number maimed or disabled. Wonder how many were children. Speeding is seen as a cause of about a third of traffic accidents and a contributory factor in most. Measures introduced across the EU have reduced fatalities from around 50,000 in 2001. Of course there will always be people who think speeding and reckless driving is a laugh. Usually its the young immature drivers who are the bigger risk - but clearly not always. Is it a new big thing ? no of course not. Its just the b.s, hypocrisy and double standards that stands out a little bit.

Thanks Frank......
EXTRACT
However he warned online followers that his fix was not a permanent solution, tweeting: “So long as the domain isn't revoked, this particular strain will no longer cause harm, but patch your systems ASAP as they will try again.”
Darien Huss, 28, who works for US cybersecurity firm Proofpoint, called the British researcher a “hero.”
Mr Huss, who collaborated with the Brit behind MalWareBlog, told The Telegraph that a repeat or copycat attack should be expected “very soon” because of the simplicity of the attack and the ease of replicating it.

Wids
So it seems that sometimes you don't mind people behaving badly, breaking the law and driving dangerously in other people's countries. Not when its you anyway. Yet you're the first to complain about others who you think might possibly do those kinds of things.. whether they do or not. Nice Guy.

Very clever tech dude spotted an unregistered domain name in the demon code and bought it. Virus checks it and if it's unregistered carries on. If registered it's stopped in its tracks. The new server acts as a kind of sinkhole for all the versions of the virus out there. He has probably saved the planet.

At the moment it is pointless investors speculating and fretting over possible future litigation issues and impairments that may never materialise. For the time being leave it to the media to speculate over, and for the BOD and the Banks legal team to sought out. Whatever the final outcome will be Lloyds, will simply have to take it in its stride.

The posts below are from the NCC board. NCC is a leading Brit cyber security Co. that I've invested in.
The bottom post on TUESDAY clearly explained the security threat faced by old Microsoft computers running outdated
Windows XP.
The post below shows the frustration of this known problem (clearly in the public domain) ..not being addressed when the NHS was hacked.
If confused go to the NCC board and view these posts.
NCC is a successful and profitable Co but recently suffered when announced that contracts in the pipeline were either delayed or lost.
I have to conclude that industry is failing to address this modern day crime.
Many NHS trusts seem to address software upgrades and protection in house.
A sad state of affairs.
I heard that R4 interview...whenever I'm on-line it always on....apart from 'women's hour" lo!

NHS Hacked!Fri 16:23Certain NHS computers hacked and held to ransom. Some authorities have not spent a penny on computer protection for two years. A variety of hospitals have shut down phone systems and their screens are awash with computer code. They are still using Windows XP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Linux friend will be telling me "I told you so."

Look to the futureTue 12:16I recently left the Linux operating system returning to the Microsoft platform much to the chagrin of my Linux programming mate who sent me this link: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/05/09/microsoft_windows_defender_security_hole/
Having jumped computer ships, I will be holding NCC for the long term.
