  2. If you have locked yourself out of a PC by forgetting the administrator details, you can sort it out by buying a Razer mouse! https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/razer-bug-lets-you-become-a-windows-10-admin-by-plugging-in-a-mouse/
  3. It will be interesting to see the results of the shake up in a year or two.
  4. Interesting (and frank) interview from the great Thoughtworks when they spoke to Simon Badley, CEO at Open GI If you have or looking to buy into an Open GI system and want to know what on earth is going on at OGI Towers, give this one a watch.

  5. I don't know who was hit. It was on premises hosts. Basically, everything Windows on their network was destroyed. Could possibly have something to do with this.
  6. I was discussing measures to guard against ransomware with an OGI support member. Hosts of virtual machines are not safe. They had a client a few weeks ago, where the ransomware managed to get into the hosts (plural) and it destroyed the vhdx files (what a virtual machine is stored in). In a lot of instances, with limited access, more ports closed on the host and so forth, you would be inclined to believe that they are safe and only the virtual, more "public access" machines would be affected to different degrees. I am now looking into making a Linux host, so that backup snapshots of a virtual machine will be safe and can easily be fired up for emergency cases.
  7. I don't use Linked In. Good post. My colleague had that all the time, would ask OGI support, "How do I do this?" and would receive the answer, "It can't be done." A week later they would go back to OGI with, "This is how you do it." Now they don't even bother to log tickets with OGI. If OGI cared and had enough staff to put more time into working these things out with my colleague, then they would have an over all better product and better service.
  8. Not 24 hrs before your post! A despairing mini-rant criticising the very response you received. Feel free to add a real life instance on there - Typical Standard Response Warning
  9. Latest response from OGI: My response: I don't know why development did half a job of it in the first place and that getting this on their enhancement wishlist is such an uphill battle. Anyone else want to log a similar request and join the chorus?
  10. Oh, they are. They only want the yellow liquid someone else is giving them because they were convinced, somehow, that it is lemonade. 😼
  11. Now how do I convince colour blind horses that the water is clean and safe to drink? 😛
  12. Sorry - the above was a more generic prompt for ALL brokers - particularly those who need to review their risk appetite - not aimed at you guys per-se Ditto for this - and to make sure everyone is aware they can't blame or claim from, their supplier for their own inadequate security analysis and prevention I feel your pain with the horses - but at least you found the water - that's half the battle
  13. Not mine and I have lead so many horses to the water but I can't get them to drink. Putting it out here in public view is a last straw / venting action.
  14. Tbf - I’d be interested in comparing how the competition / alternative OGI solution aka Virtual Cabinet, manages the same situation. That’s the real benchmark / leverage. If cyber is a concern - or a requirement of your BI - I’d suggest taking a serious look at those security functions in both. Then make your choice. #whosheadisontheblock
  15. Sounds like the usual "Let's wait until it happens and then we will do something about it" kind of approach That approach went well with the NHS too ...
  16. Had a fun chat with OGI about Open Attach and Ransomware ... Currently, OA uses SYSTEM to modify and create folders and files. However, it uses the User's permissions to read and open files. This means that I can help prevent ransomware from encrypting the data but not prevent it from exfiltrating the client documents. They decided that getting someone to finish the other half of the job was a bespoke contract. Told them we can wait, far more likely another broker is affected and kicks up a storm that affects OGI rather than us.
  17. It was initially fired across our bow as a full replacement, something that would address all the shortcomings of Tripos + Java and Open-I would be phased out in a few years. Those few years have already come and gone of course.
  18. LOL 😆 - I've heard their software called somethings, but never this! Anybody who is an entrenched OGI User would find Mobius falling short in lots of areas methinks and tbf - it's not meant as a replacement. I was told once, the answer to the question "what are the differences / what are the gaps?" was met with "It's irrelevant - they are different". Not sure that approach would ever win over any existing Core user
  19. We have a full OGI buffet, including ICP, ODP, binders and so forth. Mobius simply doesn't offer enough to be remotely enticing right now.
  20. Ooo - was this Mobius Rating Engine or just the cloud version of Core Admin Platform?
  21. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/jun/14/ransomware-is-biggest-online-threat-to-people-in-uk-spy-agency-chief-to-warn I recommending reading the full article but what might be on the horizon:
  22. We recently revisted migrating to Mobius. There is no local server hosting. It is limited to consumer only. We frequently get news flashes that there are problems with the current Open-I Cloud solutions. Performance is worse with Exchange 365 than locally hosted Exchange 2013 (that we previously had). Integrated products, Open Attach working with Outlook and thefore MS mainframes has been frustrating and cost us a lot in productivity. We might revisit this in two years time. I doubt I will be recommending it as the way forward at that time.
  23. There will be issues whichever way - so you need to pick the right way for you at get it right first time. In short - and from experience on both sides - I'd say transfer now to your server, as separate branches. This may involve some logistics for connectivity (I don't know your set-up) but on the face of it - is better than running multiple servers and multiple business processes. You'll thank yourself in the long run Moving / migrating / transferring / consolidating to one branch - on the same server - is far, far easier to manage once the data is on one platform. Trust me on this.
