One piece of good news 👍:

(sorry, failed on this one this time ☹️)

One final note:

(an update on last week's note about the AT&T hack/not hack)

In a classic PR ploy of dumping bad information on a Friday afternoon, although AT&T chose the Easter weekend, it turns out the mysterious data that AT&T had repeatedly denied  had originated from them and or that their systems had been breached was indeed AT&T's data

AT&T is still saying there is no indication their systems were breached (absence of evidence is not evidence of absence) but it has now confirmed that the leaked data belongs to 73 million current and former customers

(and a second update on an item from last week)

The NHS Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, UK, incident where Data compromised was Not known...

The data appears to include patients’ health records such as letters and emails exchanges involving doctors and GPs from clinics and hospitals across the country
