    Anyway no offence intended Stephen and my apologies for any that was caused.

    GROUP HUG! Seriously, I was stewing a bit doing the vacuuming just now and I appreciate this.

    I've never been employed by Fairfax. I have run the team that does the tech side of Stuff for Fairfax, working for Catalyst. Hasn't been my gig for about three years though. Of course I am a bit sensitive to the implication that my colleagues have fallen down on the job. And I hope it was useful to lay out what actually happened -- maybe your grandma isn't reading this, but clearly you are and could pass it on.

    I do love the irony of being accused of "insinuations" in a comment dripping with speculation about my motives.

    For the record: Stuff, per se, was not hacked.

    Stuff, like many other sites, uses a service called Gigya to do so-called social login and provide commenting services. Gigya’s DNS records were compromised last night – not sure how that happened – and that enabled someone to make gigya.com point to the wrong servers. Therefore when sites that used Gigya loaded, they served up some Javascript from the SEA.

    The (tech security) moral of the story is that securing your site is not enough: if you include code from 3rd parties, you are vulnerable to their problems, whatever they are.

  • Hard News: Team Little: pretty good,

    Amy Adams mentioned at NetHui South last week that she too sees broadcasting and comms as strongly linked, and is concerned to have policy and legislation that in both that takes a unified view and reflects new technology. So both Labour and National see broadcasting and comms going together.

    As far as I'm concerned his place in public discussion is mouthing soundlessly and unheeded in a Hooton sized terrarium - nothing too inhumane, the Koru lounge would do.

    Hooton. Really? Why does this man continue to get a platform as though he were a legit commentator? Was the Mouth of Sauron unavailable?
