(the third "partner" in this mess, Paul Duffy, passed away)
Pictures or it didn't happen!
He probably saw the writing on the wall before the other 2, decided it was time to get out while there was still money in the kitty that hadn't been seized/frozen/drained from judgements against them. So he probably faked his death and fled the country with some of the money.
Tho I don't know if there is any good solution to this problem. Have regular patching, thus introducing an attack (and privacy) vector, or don't patch, thus avoiding that vector, but leaving yourself open to pre-existing flaws in the code...

Placing the "decision" making process in another's hands is a decision.
By that reasoning then the decision was actually made by the American voters who elected the representatives who appointed the officials. That means Hillary wasn't prosecuted because the American public decide she shouldn't be. In fact, no one in government ever has any responsibility for anything because it all falls back to the voters. Yeah, I see how that works.
I stand by the fact that Law Enforcement is one of the noblest of professions and those who risk their lives for others continue to be extremely under appreciated.I stand by the fact that Law Enforcement is one of the noblest of professions and those who risk their lives for others continue to be extremely under appreciated.
And convenience store clerks. Their jobs are even more dangerous.
Re: Re: Twain: "A lie can travel halfway around the world..."
Then you need to learn how to use the net. Far and away above all other sources of the news you have the ability to check and countercheck all statements. That is of course not a guarantee that truth will be exposed at all , but it is far superior to reading one paper, or worse watching one one TV channel.
With responses like @9:19 it makes me wonder how many ringers are on Techdirt.

Re: Re: Re: Re: "Wikileaks is not explicitly anti-American."
"If he's preventing a corrupt politician from getting the presidency, he's doing the US and most likely the whole world a favour."
Clinton's 'corruption' is going to be far less damaging to the US and the rest of the world than Trump would be. It baffles me that you're so appalled by her fairly standard politician's behaviour that you'd accept a man so grossly incapable of doing the job. If he manages to do half the things he wants the damage will be shocking to behold. More likely he won't have enough support to do much and the USG will be completely impotent and become a world laughing stock.
"Heck, it's BETTER for him to influence the election than it would be to release outside of election time."
Absolutely not. As AC said above, releasing as early as possible give more people more time to properly process the info and avoid stupid over-reactions or missing stuff that's actually important. Advocating for less analysis goes completely against your claim that this info is important. The late release benefits Wikileaks only, not the public.
"I'd suggest that anyone upset about corruption being exposed might just be backing the wrong horse, and not liking it very much."
Nice strawman, but nobody has claimed they're upset about corruption being exposed. The criticism here is about when Wikileaks is choosing to release, and who actually benefits from there timetable.
These problems first START when greedy software producers like Microsoft sell law enforcement on their "product" and it's supposed capabilities. They're quick to buy it because they want to appear "state of the art" in a world in which they're not physically willing to enforce the laws. They've been convinced that money will get them easy-peasy-lemon-squeasy and they fall for it again and again... Why? because in addition to the software hucksters themseves, there are myriad tech "qurus" who continue to write about it, even today, like it's still "the shit", when it "just shit". It's a tool no more capabale of pulling off miricles than a common rock.
To hack any website, email, mobile phone (calls; text message; whatsapp; bbm), social network (facebook; twitter; instagram), change your grade, examination hack, recovery of passwords of mails, websites and social networks, find your target's password (friend; wife; husband; boss; girlfriend or boyfriend) to know if they are cheating or not...
