never seen a full episode...
Hmm. I guess watching bad TV can be educational.. if you're willing to sit through it. UGH. but I just can't watch shows like Maury.. or Dr Oz.

And occasionally Dr Oz does have good advice -- and he's a real doctor. But.. I just can't stand the way the advice is delivered.

Re: get to work
@Michelle: To clarify: Chris Richter told me that the vast majority of companies are thankful for the call, but that a substantial portion of them react the way described. Being alerted to that kind of thing by an outsider may present a variety of practical legal and/or political concerns.

Legal/compliance issues aside, this is part of the reason why a lot of companies often pooh-pooh and brush off independent security-researcher findings when published. But a company like CenturyLink (or, for that matter, Level 3 Communications before it was purchased by CenturyLink) cannot be so easily dismissed -- because they actually see the network traffic and see these things happening.

There's a lot to unpack from this one...mostly Maury-related and for another time.

You offer up great advice. I can't believe companies have actually been upset when they're told something's up in the network. I can see why they would be displeased to get the call, but the problem existed before the call.
