    JPMorgan Drops Terms 'Master,' 'Slave' From Internal Tech Code and Materials


    The terms had appeared in some of the bank's technology policies, standards and control procedures, as well in the programming code that runs some of its processes, one of the sources said. The phrases "master" and "slave" code or drive are used in some programming languages and computer hardware to describe one part of a device or process that controls another. "Blacklist" is used to describe items that are automatically denied, like a list of websites forbidden by a company's cybersecurity division. "Whitelist" means the opposite - a list of items automatically approved.

    You can't just up and change universal terminology. It doesn't work like that in coding where one period in the wrong place would crash the whole system. The person who made this decision has no idea what hell they have unleashed on their internal it and network teams.
