  • Dianne 'Maths is Hard' Abbott phooled by phishers

    While fraudsters traditionally prey on the gullible and feeble-minded, their wicked ways have ensnared genius British Labour MP Diane Abbott.

    The UK Shadow Home Secretary admitted to handing over control of her computer to a stranger after a random caller asked her to install Remote PC. It's a common scam. Once the miscreant has control of the PC, they often attempt to steal sensitive information like passwords and bank details.

    If she became Home Secretary in the event of a Labour victory Ms Abbott would be responsible for cybersecurity, as well as crime and policing. Frankly I wouldn't make her responsible for string, let alone anything important.

    Well - full disclosure, my mother got the same sketchy call and she was apparently smarter than Dianne and called me to ask me how legit it was. As a good son, I told her it’s obvious scam and I did my job as her customer service.

    Explain the internet to old people nevermind the high ranked politicians.

      It's a sign of just how little talent UK Labour has to call on that she still has a job.

          Phone rings: Voice in thick Russian accent: This is MI5. Our country is being hacked. Please gib access to all police files

          Abbott: Oh gosh, that's terrible. Of course I will, right away.

                  Funnily they mostly are politicians, blessed with a lot of self-esteem. And they nearly never get removed despite being outrageously incapable. To the contrary.

                  Not a good role model for the populace which is expected to perform alraedy as kids in school. And we wonder why the ambitions get lower and lower it nowadays suffices to be an influencer for making a decent living

                  Someone smart once said that at one point the artificial intelligence around us will increase so much that we, in contrast, will become ever more stupid.

                  When (grown up) people in the Metro sit besides me and let their telephone read stuff out aloud for them, I think its true

                    Do you mean "Boolean Strings"?
