First it's Not click bait its just general information dealing with things related to Apple Second No I'm not a employee with the Verge or any companies that I post links to their sites. Most of the sites are just sites that are reporting news about the specific issue whatever it may be which just provides sources on dealing with the issue this way its just not hear say. As far as ads go I'm never a fan of them no matter the site so its not up to me who chooses to put them on their site rather it be here or any other place. So from now on I will make sure not to post links anymore..No, a Zoom Security Flaw has been found. The Mac just happens to be the platform this malware (er, excuse me, finely-crafted AV Conferencing software) runs on. The Mac Camera has nothing to do with it, other than being a part of the MacBook or iMac that might have Zoom installed.
Thanks for the link, but now I have revalidated the The Verge technique of finely-crafted headlines that encourage clicks which feeds their ad revenue. Zoom is not the name of the exploit, merely the name of the plug-in or software package that has the exploitable code. Mentioning "Mac Camera" in the headline guarantees traffic. The responsible headline would be "Security Flaw found with Zoom AV Conferencing Software", but only 10% of the people would click on the link.
Actually, Poke, you provided the Click-bait, so full disclosure: Are you employed by The Verge or any of its associated companies?
MacOS changes enough from one to the next that a degree in one version may not be worth much two or three years out -- especially as Apple tapers off the Mac part of the business.Maybe I need to go back to grad school at YTU and get my MS in MacOS.
File sharing under Windows has always been one of the most dangerous things you can subject yourself to. Microsoft knows this better than anyone after having to patch three of the most pernicious trojans ever that traveled between machines that had sharing enabled. The whole idea of network storage is so that the storage device isn't running an OS that has its pants down by design.So while the computers now can work through the WD network drive, none of the win 10 computers can be seen yet in the File Explorer under the network.
And here I thought fast roping into a jungle of enemy machine gun fire was the most dangerous thing I ever did.File sharing under Windows has always been one of the most dangerous things you can subject yourself to.

Remember that network engineers are more about network hardware (routers, switches and firewalls) than computers. That said, one can't help picking up on some of the problems with the various operating systems along the way.I'm sure he could figure it out but the trick is getting him to the house to look at it. His employer is in California and he travels all over the country debugging and fixing network problems for small businesses.
It's just me needing to break old habits of saving out to a local hard drive. I told you each win 10 computer has 16TB of data storage. These are video projects that require a lot of large files. My NAS western Digital drive is just 2 TB Raid 1. But being a network drive the speed is quite slow compared to a local drive. However, I told you this WD 2TB NAS is an experiment to see how I like the new way of dealing with win 10 file sharing limits. If it works out I may research a much larger NAS and pull the 8 4TB drives from the machines and use them. For speed, I still have the local M.2 sticks (2TB) capacity I can render to and then store to the NAS when the project is complete.I'm vexed by why you think using the NAS is onerous.
Isn't the hard drive one of the few easily replaceable parts?
I think I'd rather run across a bad drive than a system with a demonstrated capacity to soil itself.
