🔥 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.

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

If you see an open-source project that has support for Twitter (in one way or another, could even be just linking to Twitter profiles in a website theme) but not Mastodon, go file an issue and ask kindly for it to support Mastodon, too.

For those following the Treo90 update saga, I have been victorious thanks to a reddit user on /r/Palm. If you need this update for your Handspring Treo90, I have posted the link here: reddit.com/r/Palm/comments/d7l

It will also be in the RPoD Palm Software section soon.

Progress on setting up a Plan 9 laptop to take to XDC in two weeks:

✓ Act as term or cpu server
✓ secstore/factotum
✓ SSH into stuff
✓ Reading email
✓ Vim (don't tell anyone)
✓ git9

TODO:

✗ WiFi
✗ Outgoing email
✗ Golang

Then, projects:

✗ Mastodon via plan9 (Go?)
✗ Wayland compositor
✗ More POSIX support in ape

Average User: "we can't have physical buttons or keyboards on phones anymore because screen-only devices are prettier"

Me: *throws a bucket of Palm Prēs at them*

I've resolved myself to stop saying "I can't do that" and start reframing that as "I can't do that, yet".

I might never do the thing, but I'll be damned if I'm going to keep shooting myself down just because I wasn't born like Goddess Athena: fully formed, armored, and ready to kick some ass.

@jonw
I think it's kind of sad that most people will only ever interact with places in their eternal September. To have Twitter and Facebook as the best that is. :sadness:

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.
