Oops They Did It Again Edition

Top Story

  • Microsoft has effectively destroyed computer security altogether.  (Ars Technica)

    Not directly the subject of the article (which is about Microsoft Recall, again), but of the pinned comment.

    The point being that Recall is such a huge security risk, that even if you disable it (or never install Windows 11 in the first place), you have to assume that anyone you share a document with has been or will soon be hacked.

    Which is bad.

FTFT.
