Wow. Just wow. I have no idea how the folks who implemented Phoenix could fail so miserably. Like... 'unit tests failing' bad.

I'm going to guess that the database query to do that specific part of the T4 form is:

SELECT sum(rawIncome) FROM payouts WHERE date >= '1 Jan 2017' AND date <= '31 Dec 2017' & empId = '...'

At this point, 'gross negligence' is a pretty reasonable charge to raise against the devs and managers.

I was in Italy lately, in Campobasso. I was inspired to see how the six towers of the town's arms were a theme in the region.

First, the arms

Worth having a look. Some a pretty!
It’s finished! (at least for now…) After doing the badges, I caught up on the five or so new devices that had been registered since early October 2017 when I’d done my data pull of devices and badges for this crazy project, as well as a couple of errors…

"It is well past the time for Canada to comply with the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal decisions and end its discriminatory provision of services to First Nations children as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called on it to do."

Another data leak :(. Looks like a proper response by HBC.

This is exactly why I do what I do... Security is hard and people will keep doing it wrong for that reason alone. Good tools can go a long way to avoid this.

One more reason to hate Facebook.

As to 'why' the Android permissions were that way, I'm going to guess that it felt right to the devs at the time.

Why do I say that?

I've studied access control evolution for a while now, and there's cases of privileges merged and split in open source systems. AFAICT, the rationale between a split is pretty much "Yeah, that looks about right... (n versions later)...DOH! This is too coarse grained."

That being said, I haven't done a formal case study on developer intent, so take my observations with the requisite grain of salt.
