    That'd be quite fine. But more importantly, they should block gore sites first.

    - Last Call: Flickr Starts Deleting Your Old Photos on March 12 [Updated] - Gizmodo


    Note: All free Flickr accounts are now limited to 1,000 photos.

    Also, "[...] all photos shared to the service under a Creative Commons license will remain active, even if the accounts that they came from had more than 1,000 photos. Thankfully, that means large institutional library and government accounts that offer images in the public domain will remain unaffected. [...]"

    One of my friends has panic attacks about this very topic. They are worried that the internet will be permanently taken away from the public. I wonder if I should show him this forum as a joke, or would it result in him going off the rails and murdering the government?

    Hmm

    The work of Chaos is never done

    Open source malware is actually a possibility - micheal65536's blog

    "[...] Open source software is gaining mainstream popularity, and the very philosophies that built the open source community – trust and sharing – are making it look very attractive to malware developers. When the users trust the developers, and the developers trust each other, it becomes very easy to slip something malicious under everyone’s radar. And since open source software has a wider userbase now, and is even overtaking freeware in popularity, the payout now makes the effort required to use open source software as a malware distribution medium look worthwhile.

    The Extortion Economy: How Insurance Companies Are Fueling a Rise in Ransomware Attacks — ProPublica

    "[...] Ransomware is proliferating across America, disabling computer systems of corporations, city governments, schools and police departments. This month, attackers seeking millions of dollars encrypted the files of 22 Texas municipalities. Overlooked in the ransomware spree is the role of an industry that is both fueling and benefiting from it: insurance. [...] The FBI and security researchers say paying ransoms contributes to the profitability and spread of cybercrime and in some cases may ultimately be funding terrorist regimes. But for insurers, it makes financial sense, industry insiders said. It holds down claim costs by avoiding expenses such as covering lost revenue from snarled services and ongoing fees for consultants aiding in data recovery. And, by rewarding hackers, it encourages more ransomware attacks, which in turn frighten more businesses and government agencies into buying policies. [...]"

    "[...] In recent years, cyber insurance sold by domestic and foreign companies has grown into an estimated $7 billion to $8 billion-a-year market in the U.S. alone, according to Fred Eslami, an associate director at AM Best, a credit rating agency that focuses on the insurance industry.

    Amazon AWS Outage Shows Data in the Cloud is Not Always Safe - Bleepingcomputer

    "On August 31st, 2019, an Amazon AWS US-EAST-1 datacenter in North Virginia experienced a power failure at 4:33 AM, which led to the datacenter's backup generators to kick on. Unfortunately, these generators started failing at approximately 6:00 AM , which led to 7.5% of the EC2 instances and EBS volumes becoming unavailable. [...] After the power was restored, Amazon determined that some EC2 instances and EBS volumes incurred hardware damage and the data stored on them were no longer recoverable. [...]"

    "[...] Amazon EBS advertises itself as being "designed to protect against failures by replicating within the Availability Zone (AZ), offering 99.999% availability and an annual failure rate (AFR) of between 0.1%-0.2%." [...] Amazon protects themselves by specifically stating that they will only issue credits for loss of service availability and that they are not responsible for data loss. [...] [Likewise,] DropBox states that they too are not responsible for loss of data. [...]"
