the way David Byrne says "some peanut butter" in "Life During Wartime" makes me extremely curious to see his candid interactions with a fresh jar of peanut butter.

Apparently, #DEFCON is free to attend this year (online, of course). This is kinda a Big Deal ™ for students like myself and I’m surprised to only just be hearing about it #infosec #defcon28

(The conference starts this Friday fyi)

has had two security issues which are now fixed in the packages and will be in the soon to be released v5.9 upstream release.

CVE-2020-15862 is a realisation that EXTEND-MIB is bad because you can run arbitrary commands if you have a write community/user.

CVE-2020-15863 is unsafe symlink handling where you can get the snmpd daemon to write files as root. I'm also updating snmp-mibs-downloader to fix the vector used.

If I'm being honest I've never been to DEFCON and I'm not really the type. I've never liked big crowds and 30,000 people is a little much. But this year it's virtual and the price is right!

On Thursday I'll be in an all-day class learning about analysis tools like Graylog, Moloch, osquery, Velociraptor, Zeek, Suricata, etc. Those talks will be free to the public on twitch. cfc.blueteamvillage.org/call-f

@smallsees @nowplaying it definitely felt that way for a stretch, much like the apparent rule to include Level 42 songs in John Cusack film soundtracks

'I am not a robot.' A simple looking little button on an otherwise plain web page. She shrugged and clicked it.

Alert! She frowned as an error message message popped up on screen. Some glitch? She clicked the button again.

Alert!

Click.

Alert!

She sighed deeply.

"Everything ok?" her wife asked, noticing her irritation.

"Nothing major. Just some glitch with this web form."

"Darling," a serious look, "there's something I need to talk to you about..."

25 Years of Free Software

25 years ago on 24th July 1995 I released my first Free Software program called axdigi.

Time has gone quickly! A lot what was written has fallen away (I completely forgot I wrote ttylinkd for example).

I'm still writing Free Software or Open Source and still enjoy it.

In many years as an adventurer, she’d always heeded her mentor’s words. ‘Always use equipment which will help on your quest,’ Isolde had told her. ‘Especially any which may give you and others protection. Those are most valuable.’

She looked at the item the monster had dropped. It held an enchantment. 30% Resist Disease. A lucky find in a land afflicted by Ash Lung Fever!

She equipped the mask to her face, lifted her sword, and continued her journey.

"She hadn't made a milkshake in years for fear that they would return.

She starts the blender reluctantly.

In the distance, screams.

The boys had returned. They were coming to her yard."
