DocScrutinizer05we had a cistomer who punched holes into the floppies to store them in Leitz $idontknowtheenglishterm https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.brevo-service.de%2Fbilder%2Fprodukte%2Fgross%2FLeitz-Ordner-Solid-11120001-A4-breit-weiss.jpg&sp=c3127e02681f882d6ddef6f5f9c0820615:40

DocScrutinizer05a hoax17:41
DocScrutinizer05quote: it is no different if they discover LD_PRELOAD and call it 0-day hole17:42
kyakit is a bit different. Usually antiviruses and other critical software try to counter-measure dll injections. It is not supposed to be as simple as creating a registry key17:51
DocScrutinizer05well, whatever, it for sure is not zeroday vulnerability, not to argue about the https://www.buerger-cert.de/archive?type=widtechnicalwarning&nr=TW-T17-0032 classification "risk: HIGH"18:15
DocScrutinizer05LOL18:15
mthDocScrutinizer05: "ring binder"21:40
mthwe used to punch holes in floppies to make DD floppies into HD21:40
mthalthough the result wasn't very reliable21:40
mthapparently the magnetic layer was different between the two21:41
mthand the converted floppies developed I/O errors more quickly21:41
mthor maybe that's a hoax too and I just had bad luck with the few I used21:42
wpwraka floppy that doesn't develop I/O errors is like an eagle that never learns to fly ;-)22:43
mthyes, but usually it's not within a few weeks of light use23:34
