🔥 CVE-2019-14287

A flaw in Sudo—that comes installed on almost every OS—could let users run commands as "root" even when they're restricted.

Details ➤ thehackernews.com/2019/10/linu

How? Just by specifying user ID "-1" or "4294967295" in the command instead of the root.

A year 10 student came in Monday morning not knowing what complex numbers were.

Monday: complex numbers, vectors, matrices, tensor products
Tuesday: entanglement, circuits, Deutsch–Jozsa
Wednesday: implementing Deutsch–Jozsa and using LaTeX

On Friday he hands me 4 pages!

Done! I managed to take a NT 3.51 VM image all the way up to Windows 10 20H1 via Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1!

You have to push the tape into the drive a bit for the capstan to engage. On the plus side, though: it works!

The MIT Press sure does publish a lot of stuff that I'm interested in.

The beta builds of the Android 10 builds of are already hitting my test device and despite the usual warning about 'bugs' it's working well so far!

I always like to do a little bit of analysis on the malware I receive to my inbox.

One thing that makes this one funny is that, although it was sent to my email address, it's addressed to a different address.

I think the attacker might have an off-by-one error in their spamming script.

Who knew there was a sort of hanky code for hexadecimal. Thanks Datamation magazine from 1968

New konbini down the street. Some seriously good chip options are available.
