Seems like a good system. Buy some software, the vendor has access to your computer. Just a fair trade.

It’s days like this that I’m glad I use Debian.

*Queue news story about Debian being breached here*


Wait, wasn’t CrowdStrike…

Yep. Goddamn, this just never ends.


I was really confused by this story and found it really unclear as to what the actual attack vector was or what “used Microsoft vendors” really meant. This short Twitter thread cleared up a lot for me:

So I read that right ? Microsoft had to tell Crowdstrike about the breach ? Crowdstrike, being the sort of company it is, didn’t know on its own ?
