"Smart contract bug exploit and draining of funds"?

I prefer to call it it "unintended bug bounty payment"!

My coworker just showed me a screenshot tool that automatically uploads your screenshots... but it uses a predictable link format. He's been scrolling it for 20 minutes trying random permutations. He's found more than one crypto wallet address.

I completely derailed a scrum meeting today by adding mood music on my synth whenever anyone gave a status update.

"I wrapped up blah."

me: fanfare

"I’m running into some unanticipated complexity."

me: ominous music swells

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

Okay after reading up a bit more on how ActivityPub (thing that powers Mastodon), I’m super motivated to build a compatible client and server in Rust from scratch. Just to learn.

I may need to upscale the server after all :thinktink:

But that would mean an increase of over €110 extra per month.. :amaze:

Currently the bills are over €500 per month already for all services I host.. :blobcatscared:

So.. uh.. I wanna ask, if you can and want to help me out paying the bills and upscale for mstdn.social please do! ❤️ :cat_hug_triangle:

patreon.com/mstdn
ko-fi.com/mstdn
liberapay.com/mstdn
opencollective.com/mstdn
bunq.me/mstdn

Every bit is so much appreciated!

Okay, I wanna engage with Mastodon more, gimme your recommended follows (even if it's your own account!) :D

Apparently next week’s patch Tuesday is going to be a big one, fixing multiple RCEs. Get some sleep this weekend.

Also, while trying to get root, I kept getting spammed by someone via wall, LOL, telling me I was "hacked"

Climbing the HackTheBox ladder along with League of Legends ranked ;D

Kind of forgot to open a Mastodon tab after I decided to make this more of a high-quality, less shoot-the-shit platform. I realize now that I need to sprinkle a bit of social along with content for me to come back to a platform.

So hello again, world! :)

Hey peeps! Looking to put together a collection of resources for security engineers of all levels to start up/level up their skills in programming. If you know of anything that was useful to you (prog. language doesn't matter), send me a link! <3

To follow up with my Medium post from yesterday about containerizing my NSM stack, I've updated my Github documentation wiki with the steps in the article, as well as a bit more technical information. Feedback is appreciated! Enjoy!

The mastodon stages:

1: getting used to the interface

2: discovering that most people are just people, engaged in everyday adventures, big & small

3: the allure of the notification sound

4: a gradual getting used to the fact that not everything is about US politics, and that it's okay to filter it out on a macro level

5: a quiet moment when you think "there can still be poetry in this world"

6: some sort of reconciliation with the quantum magic that is the federated timeline

7: pineapples
