@jamesiry 🤔 nonplussed == 0 0 + 1 == 1 (bool)1 == true We're all good here.
Retweeted by James IryIf you write a PR comment that you are “nonplussed” and somebody adds a “+1” is the comment now a lie? @marius That’s some 4 dimensional c̶h̶e̶s̶s̶ stack @Myriachan scratch that. I know that’s not likely. Restores almost never work in production.What if we already have and the System Administrator has had to restore us from a backup? https://t.co/08Fd0AGK4Uhttps://t.co/VRbPZh51IV

If you dismiss enough ads, Twitter gets so desperate it starts showing ads for PHP development tools.

@bartschuller @samth https://t.co/6FGA55czpiUsing many $100,000’s of compute, Google collided a known weak hash. Meanwhile one botched memcpy leaked the Internet’s passwords.Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah… https://t.co/KKg9CDI43A @peterseibel Most probably think the Russian flag is a red field with a gold hammer and sickle on it. #oneoldfarttoanother @jamesiry It seems like the security community uses "memory leak" to mean this thing, instead of what God intended it to mean. :)
Retweeted by James Iry @biboudis @samth open to brute force attacks. So, yeah, don’t make it too easy for an attacker but also don’t lay awake worrying about it @biboudis @samth DDOS on the other hand…I just lump DDOS in a totally different category. DDOS, unlike most security vulns, is always… @biboudis @samth Yeah, bad handling of out-of-memory condition is the rare case I was thinking of that create security probs… @samth No wonder infosec says software devs don’t understand them. We aren’t even speaking the same language.Memory leaks rarely create security problems. Cloudbleed is a read past end of buffer.Cloudbleed is being called a “memory leak.” That phrase means something totally different. @matthew_d_green @tqbf Which is to say, both are solid pieces of advice. @matthew_d_green @tqbf Even if TLS terminates on a trusted machine, a C buffer overrun in an NGINX component could still leak secrets.
