For security reasons



  • A certain professional association that we deal with want us to put their logo on our website. There is, however, an unavoidable delay of a few days. You see, we'll have to wait for a CD with the logo, because they won't email it to us [i]for security reasons[/i].

     

    You read about stuff like this on The Daily WTF, but you never quite believe it until it happens to [i]you[/i]!

    Nah, it's real.  I heard about these hackers who man-in-the-middled a company's affiliate logo when they were sending it by email, the cunning devils switch all the pantone-962 for pantone-964!  Well, obviously, that was a disaster, and by the time the lawsuits had stopped flying they just wished they had paid the hackers the blackmail money.  Final tally was four bankruptcies, three unwanted pregnancies, two hundred homes demolished and over forty-thousand internally displaced.

    So you see, it is worth worrying about.

    Yep, straight up.  You gotta watch out for them haxxors, they get everywhere. 



  • Am I the only person believing that maybe they want to send it in a format that isn't supposed to be released to the internet, such as a layered vector format instead of a fixed-size raster image?

    I don't know, it's possible...

     Yes, I think you are :p  The rest of us read the OP where it said

    Your point being that they would send the logo exactly like they want it to be on the website, then. No modifications to be done by the OP's company.

    Don't get me wrong, this is WTFish, just not... indisputably.

    And they've apparently never heard of photobucket.  or imageshack.  or putting it up on their own website.

    Damn! I wish there was a way to mark a thread as "Do Not Visit". These types of threads get really heavy.



  • Clearly their concept of "security" is that you'll always have a pristine copy of the original in case you lose/screw up your working copy.  They haven't quite gone to the full SS extent, however, or they'd have e-mailed AND snail-mailed a copy.

     Though there's no real purpose in posting in this thread, now that it has been thoroughly hijacked by "me-too" quoters...

    I fail to see the fun in that...

    Shouldn't there also be a

    quotes[i].style.position='absolute';

    so that the quotes don't visually take up space? (not tested)
