Personalausweis die 3. AusweisApp mit potentiell ordentlicher Lücke...das ging schnell

Das ging ja mal zügig.

Dass die AusweisApp etwas schrottig schräg daher kommt war recht offensichtlich. Aber das es so leicht werden kann hatte ich dann nicht vermutet. Wer genau hat die doch gleich vorab unter die Lupe genommen? Das BSI...Oh man.

Der neue Personalausweis, das BMI und Inkompetenz epischen Ausmaßes

Vor ein paar Tagen - am 01.11. - konnte man in der FAZ ein wunderbares Schauspiel genießen: Ein Interview mit Cornelia Rogall-Grothe. Wer diesen Namen bisher noch nicht kannte.

The virus scanner: Apparently a *must have* for Adobe products.

Who would have guessed that. Adobe apparently realized that Flash is so crappy that they better ship a virus scanner with every update. I wonder how over-the-top-crappy they think it is if you can't even abort the download. Thinking about's probably not the worst thing on earth to have a dedicated scanner for flash alone. I just wouldn't have guessed Adobe would admit it :-)

Kaspersky dishing out scareware...sorta. And not quite voluntarily


Some experts are just a bit over-the-top. Like the genius who robs a rent-a-cop-donut-shop. Now here's another species. Someone apparently broke into KasperskyUSA and redirected visitors to a not so benevolent offer to check their computer for viruses. Thinking about it. That's not a bad stunt. I guess the problem will be to get away with it...kinda like with the donut guy. It's not really hard to get the 10 bucks. It's probably a bit tricky to get past the 20 cops between you and the exit though.
