Re: So what’s the risk here?
All data is tracked these days – I’m not going to post anonymously because it means nothing to No Such Agency – if I think it’s anonymous then they are all laughing. … Version 1.0
A safe and sensible assumption, Version 1.0. I imagine there’s not much laughing in the NSA whenever they realise the secrets they are not privy to, the results of which are being ACTively developed and smartly deployed to benefit the East and their customers/clients/consumers in leading technological and socioeconomic fields of postmodern endeavour …. and which the El Reg admirably keeps you wonderfully well informed about, with the following link just being a most recent one doing such honours …. https://www.theregister.com/2021/01/20/the_next_generation_data_centre/
And the West/Five Eyes cohorts in their collective wisdom choose to cut themselves off from an obviously very successfully stealthily engineered and presented supply chain of enterprises and products, and all too apparently simply because the inscrutable industrious East are merely doing exactly what the West would like to be doing so much better and
light years decades ahead of them in fields in which a week is a heck of a long time. Now that certainly is not smart no matter how long you deny it being stupid and citing it necessary.

How tedious. Blame the PM for this is like, well, it’s so stupid I can’t even think of an appropriate metaphor ….. Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells
Where does the buck then rightly stop, Disgusted Of Tunbridge Wells? And then what will be done to the unfortunate soul[s]?
Hung, drawn and quartered? An immediate sacking? Or nothing really of any significant consequence?
What will be tedious is to hear a Priti Patel like drone trot out that old faithful ……. Lessons will be learned ….. whenever it is bleeding obvious that they never ever are ….. for there is always a constant new stream of inexperienced hopefuls doing tasks they are never fully prepared for, and in all too many cases, totally unsuited and booted for.
‘Tis just the crazy way things always are and/or have been with humans who think they be in charge with the pulling and pushing of levers/pimping and pumping and dumping of information with commands and controls to follow with media presentations.
* I suppose that is still too alien a notion for mainstreaming just yet, but there’s nothing stopping it anywhere/everywhere else though.

Re: Johnsons fault or click bait?
There is no individual to blame, but Fujitsu has to bear much of the responsibility as they are the ones instructed by NPIA (or whatever they are called now)to run it and do the work on it. ….. Anonymous Coward
Oh please, you cannot be serious? Is corporate machinery now to be highlighted in the frame and to be held responsible for all human fcuk ups? How very convenient.
I’m absolutely certain that won’t be horrendously abused and misused.
I can just hear the bleatings from the dock now ….. “It was the machine which did it, m’lud.”
