  • 10/01 15:56:21 Andera: (of them)
  • 10/01 15:58:41 Muriel: 90 million of 1.5 billion active users is only 6% of users
  • 10/01 15:58:47 Muriel: Its really not a huge breach if you think about it
  • 10/01 15:58:57 Andera: I guess if they have 2.5 bill , that’s 2%. Which is _still_ significant.
  • 10/01 15:59:05 Andera: Matter of opinion, I guess.
  • 10/01 15:59:07 Muriel: Oh sorry
  • 10/01 15:59:28 Muriel: I dont see 2.5 billion being significant because it wont cause a significant drop on usage
  • 10/01 15:59:38 Muriel: But I guess it could be since people have so much tied to their account
  • 10/01 16:00:51 Andera: sort of depends. If 2% of your FBriends are hacked, and they can see your complete profile….
  • 10/01 16:00:53 Andera: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • 10/01 16:04:14 Andera: “incredibly seriously”

  • 10/07 19:28:55 Andera: > A notable exception was AWS’s data centers inside China, which were filled with Supermicro-built servers, according to two people with knowledge of AWS’s operations there. Mindful of the Elemental findings, Amazon’s security team conducted its own investigation into AWS’s Beijing facilities and found altered motherboards there as well, including more sophisticated designs than they’d previously encountered. In one case, the malicious chips were thin enough that they’d been embedded between the layers of fiberglass onto which the other components were attached, according to one person who saw pictures of the chips. That generation of chips was smaller than a sharpened pencil tip, the person says. (Amazon denies that AWS knew of servers found in China containing malicious chips.) https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-10...
