A fix is already available, and the system administrators of the world are rushing to deploy it. But it will be a few days before it is prudent to assume that most secure sites are safe to use. Even if you use an unsafe site, the odds of mischief are small, so don't panic if (for example) you really need to access your online banking account today. Still, it would be safest to refrain from using sites reliant on login credentials, credit card numbers, and the like for the next several days.
So, please take advantage of this opportunity, and help spread the word about it. It's a shame to be passing up free money for the Order.
Thanks to the usual sloppy reporting of the tabloids -- a post-mortem example is linked -- I could never tell what she was really interested in, much less whether she thought of herself as a Thelemite or was actually considering OTO involvement. I wish I could have had a conversation with her; I'm sure it would have been fascinating.
But now that chance is gone. Unto Peaches Geldof, as to all those from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen, may there be granted the accomplishment of her Will.
Incidentally, some years ago I had contact with a widowed brother whose late wife's family was threatening to sue him if he revealed or even intimated at her affiliation with the Order. He had endowed an academic scholarship in her memory, for OTO members, but her family were trying to prevent him from naming it after her. I am not sure how that case eventually worked out.
Note that I know nothing about this site...does anyone have experience with them, positive or negative? If so, please let us know in a comment.
