    Did you bother to read your post? It says
    invalidated all user passwords
    Secondly,
    These users returning to Myspace will be prompted to authenticate their account and to reset their password
    That says "reset password" not "retrieve old password"
    You're not listening.

    I asked: "Why do you want your old password?"

    If it wasn't for you, I'd be totally fooked. I am one of those idiots who use the same password on many different accounts, leaving unique ones only for my banking and business accounts.

    That would be great for a first time computer user with no existing web accounts. Unfortunately, i don't fit that Bill. I have been letting Google Chrome save my passwords so I have access to those accounts but I was using I.E. for a very long time before chrome. How can I retrieve all of my accounts from I.E.? I've bought 3 computers since 2007 and have tried to back up I.E.'s favorites so I can look there first. Do you have any other suggestions? Should I just say "screw-it", put the passwords I can find in the password manager and fook the rest? (The most important sites I use all the time, anyway.)

    Well I don't know about IE, but in Chrome you can view your saved passwords anyway.

    Settings, Advanced, Manage Passwords.

    Cheeky.... if you have an Android Smart TV.



    It seems like you can’t go more than a few days lately without hearing about another ransomware attack. Sometimes it’s just regular folks getting hit by the scammers, but it can also be hospitals, universities, and businesses. Now, a new version of the Frantic Locker (or FLocker) Android ransomware has started popping up that goes after more than your phone or tablet. The new FLocker can lock down your TV until you pay up. And no, it doesn’t care that Game of Thrones is on.

    FLocker has existed for a while now — it’s actually very well-maintained by ransomware standards. The developer is constantly updating the package and adding support for new Android system changes. In a new version of the malware, the owners added support for Android-powered smart TVs.

    Weirdly, FLocker won’t work on Android devices that are in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Hungary, Ukraine, Russia, Armenia, or Belarus. The first thing it does when reaching a new system (you have to install it somehow) is check its location. If it’s not in one of those countries, it attempts to install a command and control system on the smartphone or TV. Android has more security measures than your average Windows PC, believe it or not. In order to take control of your system, it needs administrator access. This is where the Android ransomware diverges from PC ransomware.

    FLocker-paymentYou can’t just encrypt important system data on an Android device without root access, which most devices don’t have. Thus, FLocker tries to get the user to grant administrator access, which allows it to control the screen and prevents it from being uninstalled. It starts by asking nicely, then gets serious with a fake system update warning. When it has admin, FLocker locks the screen to a fake law enforcement notice. As a fine for some unclear criminal activity, the owner of the TV or phone is asked to pay $200. Is the strangest twist yet, this fine must be paid via iTunes gift cards.

    Because we’re not dealing with an encrypted volume, it is possible to fix the FLocker ransomware yourself. You’ll need a computer with the Android developer tools running. Using an ADB command, you can kill the malware process that’s locking the screen, then go into the settings and revoke its administrator access. That’s not an overly technical process, but you need to already have ADB debugging enabled on your device. If that’s not possible, you’ll have to factory reset. That may or may not even be an option on your TV, so Trend Micro suggest contacting the manufacturer.

    Just dropped Chrome today. Am much happier with Firefox which can do everything that Chrome can and much more. The straw that broke the camel's back came in the last 2 days when Chrome started logging me out of all active web sites on the browser, including Google which I really need for my email. Every since I've been searching and implementing solutions I found surfing. Then I went over to Firefox and it was still logging me into gmail on opening the browser, which is my home page. And it remembered every login/password for all my sensitive, and most commonly used accounts, even though I don't remember logging on to Firefox except to copy and paste my repo to repos and comments. So it must have some kind of sync-up with Chrome or Google about password changes , if not, new accounts. But I'll soon find out about that as I imported all my favorites from Chrome, for the second time, apparently, as Firefox neatly put today's import folder next to the older one. So I'll check out the date stamps and size of both of them, if I have to delete one or the other due to duplicates.

    The most important things are that Firefox is basically the platforms for the Tails OS and Tor browser.

    Have you been taking computer lessons from Buttplug?

    Firefox is a Browser.

    Tor Browser is another Browser based on FireFox ESR.

    Tails is an OS based on Debian (Linux).

    Qubes is better, ask Ed Snowden.

    Accept my apology. I should of thought of that as Tails runs off a USB drive. It does come embedded with Tor and it will accept other browsers except Chrome.

    Harry, see if you can check that out.

    that's rich from someone claiming to run an IT department in a Fortune 500 company and then proceed to put the whole enterprise infrastructure at risk by letting users save all their passwords with a password manager,

    I mean, are you real ?

    do you know what a password manager is ?

    I guess you either use the same password on each site or let your browser save them

    actually , I think I should test and try and log into TD with your username and a password of 12345

    what I find extraordinary is how you think you can get away with it, lecturing others on IT shit when you don't even know basic good practice of password security. And you dare lecture me about security ? learn how to use your fucking password you fucking illiterate aussie, and if you can't, get a fucking iTab

    fucking priceless

    let me guess, this is your master password, I prefer 123456

    does your Fortune 500 company let you get away with such poor practice ? no wonder cyberattacks are happening everything in those firms, when they have IT retards like you running their department

    you wouldn't know you got hacked, that's the beauty of it. All Chinese hackers will "stealth" listen your IT infrastructure and you don't even know it. You could have been listened to for the last 10 years, and you still wouldn't know or find out about it.

    Harry, you are a fucking joke, always been, but that takes the prize !!!

    Come on Buttplug, the challenge is there. Stop trying to deflect.

    You reckon you're some kind of shit hot hacker, although you've already had well worn arse handed to you on a plate.

    Hack my Teakdoor password, go on you fucking loser.

    I don't know if this has been brought up before but firefox has dropped Google's search engine as its default in favor of Yahoo. I was worried until I found out the reason: a better contract. Also, you can still choose Google as your search engine.

    None of them are allowed to freeze out the competition, or else they'd be in trouble with regulators.
