Brace for mass VMware hacking. This won’t stop. We are going to watch CVEs fall like snow. Hundreds of thousands of boxes that were online just became the soup du jour of the ransomware community.
Utilizing @horizon3attack's early PoC, we were able to create two tags (Vuln Check & Vuln Attempt) to help track CVE-2022-22972, an Auth Bypass for #VMware products such as Workspace ONE. VMware Workspace ONE Authentication Bypass Check: viz.greynoise.io/tag/vmware-…

That’s great, thank you. I’m really just tinkering with FreeBSD though I’ve finally put it on real hardware instead of a VM. It seems like an exciting time for Budgie at the moment so I’m keen to try it out again. I’ll see where I get to with the build.

I coded half of the plugins in @opnsense , I added the community repo especially for home users and in addition I maintain a couple of #FreeBSD ports. Most of the time I help out community questions in forum, reddit or twitter (which takes the most amount of time)
Would love to hear what folks are working on in Open Source, the more diverse and different the better. What wins have you had? What’s been tough? What would help lift you up? RT for reach thanks!

I've been working with Open Source for decades, but did not contribute code apart from opening a bug ticket here and there and helping with diagnostics. Recently I started working on OPNsense in selected areas. We migrated from a commercial firewall to OPNsense ... cont.

Kat sounds awesome, and like they’re doing impactful work. If you’re Elixir curious and/or front-end development savvy, get in there! #tailwind
Replying to @zkat__
anyway who wants to work on an open-source thing for helping artists make money without getting exploited. it's in Phoenix/Elixir/Tailwindcss and it's not too hard to learn. There's just a lot of work left to do. heh.

today's nerdery: this log-scaled plot shows the popularity of different integer widths in the LLVM IR resulting from an optimized build of LLVM itself. every width from 1..64 is represented! I cut off the graph at 64 bits, but the widest integer seen is an i320
