It illustrates the temptations that I must endure in order to fulfill my obligations to you, dear reader; to withstand offers of every imaginable wordly pleasure, of gold by the barrelful, and of invitations to parties at the most exclusive clubs, vacation spots, and hidden islands accessible only by private submarine. (Pauses to adjust halo) With all humility, and mindful of being admired from a distance, Bill Horne, the dutiful Moderator P.S. The original email has been modified in obvious ways. +--------------------------------------------------------------+ Hello, Do you have any interest in receiving a guest post? I am a freelancer working with several big agencies together and came during my research onto your website. It would be a pleasure to publish an article on your site that perfectly matches the subject of your site. My customer is engaged in the gambling industry/society. In this article I would like to integrate a dofollow link to my customers site and a small picture. The correct article however can be discussed at a later stage. The first option is for you to write the article and to add a link provided by us. The second option is for us to write the article and add the link and then to send it to you (this is the preferred option). May I please point strongly out that it is NOT meant the article to be marked as an advertisement, promotion, advertorial etc. Do you offer such partnership? What would an article cost per year? In case you have more sites, please do not hesitate to send me an offer for these also. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Carnival Barker ------------------------------ Message-ID: <20200703161915.GA25891@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Fri, 3 Jul 2020 16:19:15 +0000 From: Moderator <telecomdigestsubmissions@remove-this.telecom-digest.org> Subject: AT&T Tracks 2,000% Spike in COVID-19 Cyber Threats By Jessica Lyons Hardcastle Three Telco Security Alliance members and their threat intelligence units - AT&T (AT&T Cybersecurity and AT&T Alien Labs), Singtel (Trustwave), and Telef=C3=83=C2=B3nica (ElevenPaths) - reported a 2,000% spike in COVID-19 related threats in March compared to February. https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/att-tracks-2000-spike-in-covid-19-cyber-threats/2020/07/ -- Bill Horne Telecom Digest Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <408F75FF-C7875a-4A5D-98D9-BFC84E6FDD74@roscom.com> Date: 1 Jul 2020 22:35:09 -0400 From: "Monty Solomon" <monty@roscom.com> Subject: Microsoft releases emergency security update to fix two bugs in Windows codecs Microsoft releases emergency security update to fix two bugs in Windows codecs Security updates have been silently deployed to customers on Tuesday through the Windows Store app. https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-releases-emergency-security-update-to-fix-two-bugs-in-windows-codecs/ ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Sat, 04 Jul 2020
