The users only call IT when they can't get in, even if it's their own dumb fault for forgetting their mother's birthday and locking themselves out after three incorrect password attempts (then, given the chance, blaming IT when their mother didn't get a card).The thing is, though, the same applies to security. And I'm not just talking about IT security – I mean security and corporate governance in general. And as with IT, the tangible benefit of security is generally pretty negligible … so let's look at some examples of how the downsides of security can completely nobble the best efforts of even the most efficient, effective parts of your company and your systems.Politeness is your enemy. There's only one sin greater than swiping yourself into the building with your electronic pass and then holding the door open for a colleague, and that's doing the same but holding the door open for a stranger. I saw someone do that when I worked in the defence industry and the stranger was a security auditor, and it wasn't pretty. Even if you've known your colleague for years, how do you know he or she wasn't fired an hour ago? Helpfulness is also your enemy. How many times has your Service Desk reset someone's password when the latter has phoned in to say they're locked out?

And how many times have the Service Desk guys thought to themselves: “I wonder if that really was John Smith”? The good guys suffer for the bad guys. If you have a staffer under investigation for misusing IT equipment and they end up using someone else's login to carry out their sins (and the audit trail is full of the innocent party's login ID), you can't discipline the bad guy without also disciplining the “innocent” party for disclosing their credentials. Sales people are cowboys. Okay, that's probably an unfair generalisation … most sales people are cowboys. It doesn't matter if you bend the rules a little bit when (say) you borrow a colleague's password when you can't get in on the remote access service to download and print the contract you're trying to get signed. That's fine on the surface as it gets the job done, but these days it's highly likely that the customer who's watching you do it is thinking: “Hey, when they filled in that due diligence questionnaire, they said they didn't cut corners like this ...” Does it affect users? Yes, if you fire them for gross misconduct if they illicitly send confidential information to a third party. But it certainly affects them if there's a big breach of security on the website, the press finds out, the share price hits the floor and an asset-stripper picks up the remains in a fire-sale and points 90 per cent of the staff to the dole queue. And customers? Well, ask companies like TalkTalk what happens to the customer base and the bottom line when you have a nice, juicy security breach or two (and if you're not able to ask them, check out The Reg's story about it). Security, then, has to be an absolutely core consideration for your organisation. After all, it's even worse than IT. At least with IT you get the occasional nice comment from a user when you give them a cool new laptop or you announce that the standard corporate mobile device for next year is the next-edition iPhone. The same can't be said of security: I can't recall any of my users ever saying: “Yay, what a neat RSA token!” or “Hey, I just thought of a fab password with at least one upper case character and some funky punctuation!”

But security/governance is as bad as IT in general when things go wrong: to paraphrase Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: when they are bad, they are horrid. Users ought to upgrade following the discovery of a flaw in Samsung’s software update tool that opens the door to man-in-the-middle attacks.Security shortcomings in Samsung SW Update Tool, which analyses the system drivers of a computer, were discovered by Core Security. Following the discovery of this vulnerability, Core Security recommended Samsung encrypt and validate the information users download in updates.Version 2.2.5.16 of the tool was vulnerable, said Joaquín Rodríguez Varela, a senior security researcher from Core Security CoreLabs Team, who discovered the vulnerability. Flaws in this version of the software meant both cleartext transmission of sensitive information and, worse yet, insufficient verification of data authenticity. The issue created the potential for hackers to impersonate Samsung before serving up dodgy software updates.Samsung has issued a patched version of the affected software.Rodríguez commented: These vulnerabilities in Samsung SW Update Tool could allow a malicious user to read and modify the requests made both by the user and by the Samsung servers and potentially allow such user to infect the victim with a malware or a remote access tool and gain control over its machine.

After our report, Samsung implemented a ciphered communication between the tool and its servers and also a verification mechanism of the downloaded drivers, he added.An advisory by Core Security explained the vulnerability in greater depth can be found here. El Reg invited Samsung’s PR representatives to comment on the discovery on Thursday but we’ve yet to hear back from the South Korean electronics giant.Core Security notified the electronics giant on 22 January. Samsung, after what would appear to be some foot-dragging, promised to release patches in early March. clearing the way for the researchers to go public with their findings. The Precision line of Dell’s one-time skunkworks Ubuntu developer PCs, Project Sputnik, has hit worldwide availability.Project mastermind Barton George, senior technologist at the office of Dell's CTO, announced availability of the Precision line of Ubuntu workstations with the US launch of the fifth generation of XPS 13 developer edition.The fifth-generation XPS 13 comes preloaded with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 6th Gen Intel Core processor and updated divers, tools and utilities.The XPS comes in three i7 configurations – 8GB, QH+T Intel 8260, and two i7 16GB configurations with 512GB and 1TB.

Their availability comes just ahead of Canonical's anticipated release of Ubuntu 16.04LTS release, due next month. Dell plans to support this latest Linux initially as an upgrade but there’s no date, yet, for support as a factory installation.The Precision family, meanwhile, consists of three workstations – the 5510, 3510 and 7510. This being Dell, you pick Ubuntu at the customize and buy stage of ordering via its website.Global availability comes four years after Dell began work on the Ubuntu machines under the Project Sputnik name, as a project exploring the ideal developer laptop.Work on Project Sputnik began in 2012 after it was pitched to a Dell internal innovation fund by George, who gained just $40,000 of funding. George has a background of engagement with open source communities and developers on behalf of big tech firms. The project went public in May 2012, with a public beta and first XPS being released in autumn that year. However, Lenovo posted the strongest shipment growth, up 8.2% from the fourth quarter in 2011, while HP was flat and Dell slid 21%.Across Europe, HP had a much stronger lead over Lenovo, with a 19% market share over its Chinese rival's 11%. However, HP's shipments were down 8.3%, and Lenovo was the only PC firm to post growth in Europe, with a whopping 29% leap.

The end of the year is a key sales period for PC makers, but the fourth quarter of 2012 saw overall shipments slide even further, down 4.6% globally and 9.6% in Europe.Shortly after the American College of Education (ACE) in Indiana fired IT administrator Triano Williams in April, 2016, it found that it no longer had any employees with admin access to the Google email service used by the school.In a lawsuit [PDF] filed against Williams in July, 2016, the school alleges that it asked Williams to return his work laptop, which was supposed to have the password saved. But when Williams did so in May that year, the complaint says, the computer was returned wiped, with a new operating system, and damaged to the point it could no longer be used.ACE claimed that its students could not access their Google-hosted ACE email accounts or their online coursework.The school appealed to Google, but Google at the time refused to help because the ACE administrator account had been linked to William's personal email address.

By setting up the administrator account under a non-ACE work email address, Mr Williams violated ACE's standard protocol with respect to administrator accounts, the school's complaint states. ACE was unaware that Mr Williams' administrator account was not linked to his work address until after his employment ended.According to the school's court filing, Williams, through his attorney, said he would help the school reinstate its Google administrator account, provided the school paid $200,000 to settle his dispute over the termination of his employment.That amount is less than half the estimated $500,000 in harm the school says it has suffered due to its inability to access its Google account, according to a letter from William's attorney in Illinois, Calvita J Frederick.Frederick's letter claims that another employee set up the Google account and made Williams an administrator, but not the controlling administrator. It says the school locked itself out of the admin account through too many failed password attempts.Williams, in a counter-suit [PDF] filed last month, claims his termination followed from a pattern of unlawful discrimination by the school in the wake of a change in management.In a phone interview with The Register, Frederick said she filed a federal lawsuit in Illinois against the school, which has yet to respond. We would hope that the [school's] action in Indianapolis would be viewed as retaliation, which we believe it was, and that judgement would be vacated and we would prevail in the discrimination claim.

Pointing to the complaint she filed with the court in Illinois, Frederick said Williams wrote a letter [PDF] to a supervisor complaining about the poor race relations at the school and, as a result of that letter, he was told he had to relocate to Indianapolis. That's how the whole thing started, she said. His working remotely has always been a condition of his employment.The school, she said, knew he could not do that because of parental obligations requiring him to remain in Illinois.Frederick said the school has been subject to several discrimination claims over the past two years. It's a sad situation, she said.The complaint filed by Williams alleges he, as an African American, was paid less than workers of other racial or ethnic backgrounds.Rather than support Williams in his position of IT Systems Administrator, Defendants intentionally discriminated against Williams by refusing to allow Williams to participate in work-related training; paying Williams less than his co-workers, subjecting Williams to unwarranted scrutiny, refusing to promote Williams to management – all the while requiring him to perform the job of manager – holding secret meetings so as to hide the promotion of others from Williams, making it uncomfortable, humiliating and almost impossible for Williams to do the job he was assigned to do, Williams' complaint says.

It further alleges that Williams' objections to unfair treatment brought retaliation, like the requirement that he track all his duties and time in 15 minute increments, something only one other employee, another African American, was required to do.Williams, according to court documents, resides in Illinois due to a joint parenting agreement and had for years been allowed to work remotely under his contract with ACE. The school's actions against him, his complaint suggests, are retaliatory.In September, the Marion County Superior Court judge hearing the school's case in Indiana issued a default judgement of almost $250,000 after Williams did not appear in court, according to the Indianapolis Star.Frederick said she could not immediately confirm the details of the judgement in Indiana. ACE's attorneys were not immediately available to address the issue.Williams' complaint claims he cannot afford to represent himself in Indiana and has been unable to obtain legal representation there.In an emailed statement, Melissa Markovsky, senior director of communications and marketing for ACE, said the school has a policy of not commenting on pending legal issues.

As this case is moving through the court system, we are not able to discuss the lawsuit at this time, she said. What we can affirm is that we have taken steps to ensure that our information technology policies are more effectively implemented moving forward in order to mitigate a future circumstance similar to this incident.Belgian data governance business Collibra has today announced the closure of its Series C round, almost tripling its venture capital funding.Collibra was founded in 2008, but as a European company did not follow the typical Valley model of growth and was, according to CEO and co-founder Felix Van de Maele, already cash-flow positive/profitable before its Series B funding round led by Index Ventures.Van de Maele told The Register that, at the time of its Series B, the company jumped at the opportunity to go into growth mode. Van de Maele added that the business didn't expect to raise [this Series C round], but got a lot of inbound interest from investors and decided to pursue the opportunity to build a category defining company.Leading the unexpected $50m round of funding — which has taken total venture investment in the company to over $75m — was the exclusive billionaires' investment advisory group, Iconiq Capital, which Collibra has provided with a board seat to be occupied by general partner Matt Jacobson.

Iconiq Capital, which counts Mark Zuckerberg, Lakshmi Mittal and Jack Dorsey among its muchos-moneyed members, describes itself as a global multi-family office and merchant bank for a group of influential families.Also joining the board, as an observer, is general partner at Battery, Dharmesh Thakker. Battery had participated in the round alongside return backers Dawn Capital, Index Ventures and Newion Investments.Van de Maele told The Register that Collibra would be spending the $50m accelerating the business's investment in growth, which he added has seen it grow from about 70 to 200 people in the last year and triple its revenue in the same time to between 10 and 100 million.Collibra is seeing a lot of use-cases for data governance, according to Van de Maele, across a lot of verticals and not just its bread-and-butter territory of compliance within the financial industries.Growth will remain on the cards for now, the CEO said, stating that while there was a plan to profitability based on this round, there always is.So that's what we're executing against, he continued, and while there may be more funding rounds in the future, there's no plans for such rounds at the moment.
