Blocking

Posted in Other by Ziggy Monday August 23, 2004 at 11:56

Ok…this probably isn’t very interesting but I had to tell someone.

In the Navy’s own words:
“Effective immediately…a block has been placed to prevent users from downloading executable (.exe) files from any Internet sources other than .mil sites. This block has been implemented to enhance the security of the NMCI network.”

Yeah…good old Big Brother looking out for us again. You couldn’t, maybe, fire the people who are running malicious executable files? You couldn’t enforce personal responsibility? Clearly I’m in the wrong place.

  1. Wow… that’s just sad… really sad… we already can’t download .zip files. Pretty soon that’ll read:

    “Effective immediately…a block has been placed to prevent users from downloading files from any Internet sources other than .mil sites. This block has been implemented to enhance the security of the NMCI network.”

  3. I’ll bet one too many ignorant people clicked a “Click here to download this .exe that will give you free photos and is not a virus nor a dialer. Nope!”

    Dah, stupid people.
