    Starting a job with 'I don't know the first thing about this' is always fun (dorf fun). It also never gives you enough leeway to learn as you go.

    Do you have a manager? Ask how they realistically expect you to juggle it with your existing workload etc. Basically make it a pain in the ass for as many people above you in the food chain as possible.

    Pretty big news today, apparently server hardware that was manufactured in China and used in sensitive operations in the US was compromised by Chinese intelligence using a hardware backdoor.

    Yeh, just finished reading that. Scary stuff. Well, except this:
    Two of Elementalís biggest early clients were the Mormon church, which used the technology to beam sermons to congregations around the world, and the adult film industry, which did not.

    Let's not forget that time they probably compromised every sim and smartcard on the planet. That was fun.

    Since it came up in a different thread: this is nothing new and intelligence agencies love that.

    When the USA built a new embassy in Moscow in the 70s (iirc, during the Cold War for sure) using local labor, the building was unusable. The whole construction was basically one huge microphone and antenna. Everything was bugged, some stuff used advanced microphone and antenna tech the US didn't even have.
    When China ordered a 747 as their presidential machine, they took one look at the plane upon delivery and noted it was bugged. Not just a bit bugged. But US-embassy-in-Moscow bugged. They put the plane into regular airline use and ordered an Airbus. Apparently that one wasn't bugged, but I wouldn't bet on it.
    Stuxnet is a well known story, a simple virus released en masse to target a single computer (or a small number of machines.)
    In the 80s the Soviets used a Western computer chip to control valves on a pipeline. The chips came with a flaw that would cause one main valve to close. That caused one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions ever.

    Those are just some examples of the top of my head.

    I totally expect this to have happened as described in the article.
    nevar forget

    Dear advertisers of this world,

    why do you even bother to use a mass mailing software which generates unique bounce reply-to email addresses so that the software could automatically weed out no longer valid email addresses from your database, WHEN YOU DON'T EVEN ACCEPT THESE BOUNCED EMAILS?

    I'm laughing because I've pointed that out to our marketing team more than once

    Hell they don't even use our domain name for bounces which trips up probably 90% of anti-spam software (reply-to and from are not on the same domain, probably spam right?). Apparently they know best and wont listen to me. Even OUR anti-spam catches our own marketing material most of the time.

    Same here.

    If our markting material gets caught in our spam filters, we in IT need to "make it so it works". Just like you, I tried to explain that if it happens here, it might also happen at a customer's site, and that we can't fix that. You know how well that went ...

    Being a technically minded marketing person is my USP. Please don't educate the other idiots in my profession.

    We get the same thing. Guess the only advantage of them not tracking bounces is they don't find out how badly they are doing. We literally have a guy whos job it is to make these types of campaign work and he has no idea what hes doing, so they never do and weeks after the fact we have to investigate. Every time its the same conversation.

    Your marketing automation suite should be doing all that for you.
