I've always seen being in IT now was like being in mechanics 80 years ago.
But now, I think being in IT is like being a plumber except your pipe vendor only sell rusty pipes with holes pouring everywhere or non standard pipes that won't work with your old pipes
People from both side of your pipes (users and the world) will try to push more shit in your pipes
I think Opensource software is there to help plumbers to make their own pipes, so the content doesn't get poured on them.
hoffe da hat jemand die Gunst der Stunde genutzt und nen Implant gedropped.
@rick_777 How CVE-2020-0601 works.
You pass in a bunch of parameters, all of which together make up a cryptosystem and key.
The API doesn't bother to check all of the parameters you passed in, only the first few, goes 'ennh, sure, that looks close enough to be a match - certificate 100% validated! In a completely different cryptosystem than the one the key was generated for!'
I don't understand how this happens by accident.
everything i touch breaks.
