WinMx World News / Uk ISP "Talk Talk" Hackers End Up In Jail
« Last post by GhostShip on November 19, 2018, 06:11:24 pm »
More UK ISP news ... :)

Two friends who took part in a £77 million hack on the TalkTalk website have been jailed.

Matthew Hanley, 23, and Connor Allsopp, 21, both from Tamworth in Staffordshire, admitted their roles in the massive 2015 data breach which affected 1.6 million accounts.

Judge Dhir said the pair were "both involved in a significant, sophisticated systematic hack attack in a computer system used by TalkTalk".
"The total loss to TalkTalk as a result of this overall attack is estimated to be £77 million but the loss does not end there," she added.


I dont see any "hackers" in this story simply two chumps exploiting a weakness and trying to extort money, poorly it seems  :/

Customers whom decided to end their contracts early became victims of corporate greed it seems.

EE and Virgin Media have been fined £13.3m by Ofcom for leaving customers who quit broadband and phone contracts early "out of pocket".
The regulator said about 400,000 EE customers who ended their contracts early were over-billed and paid up to £4.3m too much as a result.

Ofcom said about 82,000 Virgin customers were overcharged by almost £2.8m. Virgin said it would appeal.
Margot James, Digital Minister, said companies need "to play by the rules".

Ofcom said the behaviour of both companies made customers less likely to switch provider, which was against its rules.

Always read the small print folks, it seems many companies will bluster and play hard ball right to the end unless they are confronted with their own literature and contractual material, keep paperwork safe and make sure you create a "paper-trail" where possible when dealing with big companies, something thats becoming increasingly harder in these days of call center usage.

Vista and Windows 7 Compatibility / Re: Using WinMX on Windows Virtual PC

i have a hunch where this tutorial is going to go so dont forget this; https://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Signatures-Updates/Windows-XP-SP4-Unofficial.shtml

it weighs in at around 900mb and can update any service pack version of XP Pro to the latest version... note that it needs to be the pro version of xp since windows POSReady is built on xp pro... it'll break things to install it on the home variant... the posready security updates will also keep xp patched till around april of 2019..  ....not sure im going to trust that grocery store ATM after that date...

you'll also need to install .net 4.0 separately even tho it says it includes it (needed for joshes channel rejoiner)

I wont ever be using win10, I can comfortably say I will expire before that happens  :lol:

I will look at win 7 and maybe check out win 8 but after that its really going to head into non MS territory, I am not interested in running anything they have produced of late,

I just ordered a NAS that should be able to run a vm - planning to run windows for winmx on that :D
Once it's arrived I'll let you all know and maybe I'll make a guide for that if I feel that might be needed. :walk:

I have looked into virtualbox recently for an old game and its a decent alternative to the off the shelf MS stuff , I was going to reply earlier but my PC decided to have an "episode" and the spares only just got here today, I'll look into creating a newer guide to using MX with Virtualbox and get it posted up, cheers for the feedback  :-D

A newer alternative to this software (since Microsoft discontinued it a long time ago) is VirtualBox which is free and runs on Windows, macOS and Linux. An easy and fast way to get WinMX on a Mac!

There's also some paid software like VMWare Workstation. I think VMWare Player is free though, or it may be called View now I don't know.
