"upstream" versus "downstream"
These words get thrown around a bit, and I think mostly incorrectly, but maybe I am the one who is wrong :)
- manufacturer A builds something with parts from supplier B
- software A depends on library B
What would you say is "upstream" here?
This was the inspiration for the poll:
> By hitting a vendor downstream in the supply chain, attackers give themselves more options about the companies they can extort.
The way people use downstream/upstream can be very confusing to me
