ADV200006 | Type 1 Font Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

#Windows #RCE #zeroday is under active #exploit

There's no patch available now! Microsoft is aware of this vulnerability and working on a fix. Updates that address security vulnerabilities in Microsoft software are typically released on Update Tuesday, the second Tuesday of each month.

The security flaw exists in the Adobe Type Manager Library, a Windows DLL file that a wide variety of apps use to manage and render fonts available from Adobe Systems.

Workaround:

- Open Windows Explorer, click the View tab.
- Clear both the Details pane and Preview pane menu options.
- Click Options, and then click Change folder and search options.
- Click the View tab.
- Under Advanced settings, check the Always show icons, never thumbnails box.
- Close all open instances of Windows Explorer for the change to take effect.

I thought what the hell, I'll give a chance to Altered Carbon. The first episode is way slower than it's comfortable... But the strangest thing in there is the surname of the protagonist, Kovacs. It's a very very common surname in Hungary and its pronunciation is perfect[1] as we say it. It's freaking strange to hear it back from a TV Show.

[1]: The only difference, it's Kovács where the 'a' is 'äː' more like in f[a]ther (Australian English) the leftmost "a" on the Open row in this chart:

sadness, #rant about #hatred 

So much hatred these days on this big federated space. It's painful to see, how haters hates something and protectors of that something hates haters as much as haters do and they act the same way, no better, no worse. Both side think their point of view is valid and they do it for a greater good. But what I see? Groups of ppl hates each other like in an old-fashioned soap opera and sometimes even with very strange triangles. It's not just 2 groups it's like hundred and each of them hates more than one and A group hates B and B hates C, but C supports D, and D hates A but D hates B too. It's nonsense. I can't say I can agree with A, B, C or D, nor disagree... I just don't care at all. Even if some of the topic has effect on me, I just want to curl up in the corner with a big blanket and wait for a warmer weather, but I know it does not matter what I do, it will be the same always. It was and it is the same, there no logical reason for even a little hope of changes.

I always like references is #ffxiv to other games... 

...and if it's another Final Fantasy, I'm even more happier. And hits patch (5.2), I think they did something that most of the players don't see/recognize. So there we have a new Trial with Ruby Weapon. Yeah everyone can see it, but did you see the subtitle for that trial? It's "Mark III Anti-Eikon Warmachina"

And from FFX we have:
He called it the "Sublimely Magnificent Jecht Shot Mark III."
Stupid name, huh? You know what? There is no Mark I or Mark II, you know?
My old man said the name Mark III was just something to hook the crowd.
He said they'd come back every night expecting to see Mark I and Mark II. And, they really did come back. I used to... get so mad.
I mean Mark I and Mark II would be crappier versions, right? It didn't even make sense! Tch...

I thought it's interesting and not obvious ;)

[federated] #Dev #idea 

A comment system like Commento or (a not foss) Disuss, but federated. Concept can be something like, every side has it's own handler and every post has an id. If someone makes a comment, it automatically mentions that user therefore the server will be notified about the note. Something like:
efertone.me -> efertone-me@awesome-commenting.system. When I create a new post a new user is automatically created: efertone-me-1@awesome-commenting.system. If someone mentions that user it will be visible under the post.

If you start one like this, ping me, and "I'm in!"

Privacy is not free. Here's why paying for online services is still better than paying with your personal data. The future of the Internet depends on it. protonmail.com/blog/ad-free-bu

@protonmail@mastodon.social I usually try to visualize that cost to others like: If you pay for it with your personal information, you can't "unsubscribe", your data is already there and shared. You can't just say "I don't want to pay anymore" and block transactions from your bank account.

#Spotify and #tmux with a little bit of #Python

For a long time, I had a small osascript to fetch into about the song I’m currently listening. It was fine, most of the time. Sometimes it just stuck and started to eat my memory. The other big problem with this solution was, I’m using not only MacOS, but I have windows and Linux too and all of them has tmux.

Any #misskey users out there? How can I manage queues on an instance? I tried to find answers, but all my attempts lead to failure. I have a lot of Delayed "In" items.

Other question: How can I blacklist an instance?
