Years ago it happened to me that I wanted to open an e-mail directly from the small popup window that appears on top of the windows clock in the taskbar... when I clicked there the popup changed exactly at that moment to the next e-mail message which was spam so I ended clicking on a spam message...
A colleague was in front of the computer at that moment seeing what I was doing and both of us were like...
Those things happen... Of course since that day I never click on messages directly there.
The problem gets bigger when there are people that need to use computers for their daily work that are not computer experts at all. Then everything can happen... you could have a perfect worker in a workshop that needs to see mechanical drawings and need an e-mail address to talk to some providers or even company customers... If what I explained at the beginning happened to me... imagine what can happen to those people...
The problem here is not the people that use computers.
The problem here is that there are plenty of bad guys/girls out there trying to steal and/or make damage...
It is a lost battle, if you need to be 100% of the time alert, then it is wrong by design...
It's like saying that you should not give directions to tourists during holidays because they can steal, kill or whatever-you-want...
I was reading about the latest virus infection in Europe, and the photo showed an ATM terminal having this message. Every once in a while I get it (although it seems that this has stopped since going to Window 10). What's really going on with this message?
No. They said that someone reported that their network is down and a screenshot of chkdsk at work. This could just as well been the result of switching the computer on and off without shutting down properly. Nobody really claimed this to be the malware in disguise. To a normal user or journalist this must be all the same anyway.
Article soon on acquiring an SSL cert using acme.net (forked) to negotiate (along with a micro-HTTP server) an ACME handshake with LetsEncrypt and registering the cert directly with netsh for a single HTTPS domain instance or registering the cert in IIS with SNI to serve multiple HTTPS domains from a single public IP each with their own server instance.
On Windows 10.
Interestingly, you can have a single netsh binding running with multiple IIS SNI bindings.
Even more interesting, LetsEncrypt has issued certs to over 10,000 PayPal phishing sites and security experts say it is ruining HTTPS as it removes the trustworthiness of https leaving people more vulnerable to attacks.
Perfect timing! A client just brought to my attention the fact that our main website is failing through https. (works fine thru http) I just checked and my SSL cert for that site is not expired...ftp'd in and the cert is still there as it should be. hmmm
An hour later...my colleague just called and asked if I had received the flurry of emails from our webhost support??? Nope, but that may explain things...they have migrated our domain to another server. The last email states that post migration, everything is working.
Looks like it's time to open a support ticket! Like I didn't already have enough going on...and it's just started to rain!
Well the mass of a DE is enough that a proper grip on the weapon will make doubling the shot very difficult but not breaking anyone arms. We're talking about a 2.5 kg weapon with part of the gasses diverted to cycle it and a recoil spring and a low axis bore.

She definitely won't break her arms, but if she's not using both hands and a proper grip, she may have caught the thing in the forehead during recoil.
I played with a Desert Eagle 50 and a Smith & Wesson 50 last year. The DE was vicious to shoot while the S&W was quite pleasant, even though the max chamber pressure of the 50S&W is 60,000psi, nearly twice that of a 50AE. (A 50BMG proof round is 65,000psi)
A 3 inch thick hard cover book, properly held tightly closed, could stop a Desert Eagle in 50AE. If he used a different type of book from his test shot, or held it loosely or in a way that allowed air between the pages, ... well, good bye.
On the other hand, the S&W 50 would just break the same book in half and keep going, no matter how tightly you held it closed. The book might stop the bullet but won't stand up to the torque applied by it.
(The idea of holding the book tightly closed is to prevent the pages from moving upon impact. Basically, making the book appear to the bullet as though it was still a tree.)
