Embarrassment for MoD as anti-leak guide gets leaked on to the internet

Last updated at 8:18 AM on 06th October 2009

The Ministry of Defence was left embarrassed tonight after its internal
guide to preventing leaks appeared on the internet.

The Defence Manual of Security sets out tactics for preventing
Chinese and Russian intelligence services from using blackmail
or hi-tech gadgets to obtain sensitive information.

It also describes methods of countering the threat from 'subversive
or terrorist organisations' and investigative journalists.

If the ant-leak guide was secret how was anyone supposed to know the 
contents?
Would that then be any excuse for not being able to follow the correct 
Security Procedures & as a result leave those Laptops on our Public 
Transport? :(

Well that's the point..it was afaict restricted to their Department
of Defense and maybe related ministries...not for public use.

Ah...I suspect it might be a good time to make good use of
a bad situation and release that guide with some updated
info and perhaps easy to read terms for public at large?

Although I suspect any of their .gov or Defense laptops
or related should be tied to English Mastiff's or Corgi's,
where you'd not forget the items..nor would the dogs. ;)

For example the USA Department of Defense iirc has
claimed close to 100 Billion USD worth of research
has either been lost or captured over the last decade..
it should be cheaper? to have a guard on each unit
and they'd still have most of the data/research.

It wasn't 'secret', it was 'restricted'. 'Secret' used to be the fourth
highest level of classification, while 'restricted' was so low as to be
effectively meaningless. Anyone with the requisite clearance would have
access to it. Very few civil serpents would not have a clearance level
permitting access to 'restricted' documents.

Memory Leak, Leak, Leak, Leak.....
All, I have spent a lot of time watching the life being sucked out of my computer as I develop using PB during the day. I can document PB 7.0 8030 leaking memory every time I open and close the library, save an userobject, open a datawindow, etc. Some times the memory comes back when when I close PB, but mostly not. On one occasion I watched a nearly full restoration of available memory after closing Powerbuilder and then MSOutlook. How could MSOutlook release memory? Anyhows, I just had to vent. Is anyone else suffering the slow loss of memory? I don't see a lot of thr...

Leaks leaks leaks (and lotsa grumbles)
Folks, You may recall that I have been plagued by Windows 2000 memory leaks of various sorts ever since this new server was built and first brought on line about three and a half months ago. One leak, which I quickly located and fixed, was my fault from failing to close a Service Ports Scan thread handle. Another was a problem with a new feature of the NDIS 5.0 API which my NanoProbe kernel driver was using. While fixing both of those reduced the leakage trouble, it turned out that something was still leaking somewhere. I have been pulling my hair out, going 'round...

there are more leaks ...
Check out www.firewallleaktester.com. The real issue with firewalls is controlling outbound data traffic. With Windows XP service pack 2 the built-in firewall can protect your system very well against incoming unwanted traffic. So why would you want a third-party firewall ? For controlling whatever (in the broadest sense) tries to establish an outbound connection, what tries to leave your computer or system. Like spyware trying to phone home. Check the above-mentioned URL to test the firewall that you currently have. See how well it holds up against spyware that has bee...

Am I leaking.
I do xs so infrequently that I forget. I don't think I understand the mortal issue -- when to sv_2moral or not. I have code in the perl interface to swish-e: I have some code that does things like: XPUSHs(sv_2mortal(newSVpv(StopWords[i],0))); XPUSHs(sv_2mortal(newSViv(pv->value.v_int))); but other code that does: hv_store(indexheader,"IndexFile",9, newSVpv(indexf->line,0),0); hv_store(indexheader,"TotalFiles",10,newSViv(indexf->header.totalfiles),0); is the second leaking?

How emails get leaked here
We all know this forum is buggy as hell. Well, at least I know, look at my registration date! Look at my email! But if you use your email to log on to the EDN, your email will be leaked in the "popular threads" window of the web forum. And if not your email, then your EDN user name i.e. login, which is also bad. It's been like this for years and I am surprised you didn't notice that. Screen shot here (my email shown in full): http://postimg.org/image/ym6no9unz/ I guess I should change my EDN user name to stop being my social security number plus my bank account num...
