only reason i did not delete my yahoo account was that they still have tons of my original phones on flickr. i have downloaded them using third party tools but i still wait for the day flickr would provide a reliable official tool so that i can get back a perfect copy.

You know it's bad when the story contains the phrase: "a troubling new chapter in the short history of the Internet." ;_;

+Benjamen Meyer Most of us would love to end this scourge. But the problems are baked into the protocols, it's too late to change it all, and it's not something easily remedied on our end. Just writing some kind of firewall-level program that can distinguish packets you're intentionally sending to the Internet from your home network from the ones you don't want sent is actually quite difficult, and easy to get wrong. Look at the known security flaws in the uPNP protocol for a small example.
