Dell forgot to renew the domain it uses for PC backups
« on: October 30, 2017, 11:28:16 AM »
... if you have a problem on your system – say, all of your files have been wiped or encrypted by malware – you can use Backup and Recovery to restore it to a pristine state.

As you can see, this all means that whoever controls that mouthful of a domain name could exercise an awful lot of power over the data on Dell customers’ systems.

Fine, if that somebody is Dell, but what if it’s not?
