CVE-2016-1458 got assigned 226 days before public release. I wonder if it took really that long to fix. https://vuldb.com/?id.90858

Hey friends, heads up – I provide links in this post. They provide context. I stumbled across a really interesting article by Charlie Warzel over on Buzzfeed this morning. It was titled “A Honeypot For Assholes”: Inside Twitters 10-Year Failure to Stop Harassment. One of the key things noted in the article – for me anyway – was the following “If Twitter had people in the room who’d been abused on the internet when they were creating the company, ...

On August 15th, 2016, Cisco was alerted to information posted online by the “Shadow Brokers”, which claimed to possess disclosures from the Equation Group. The files included exploit code that can be used against multi-vendor devices, including the Cisco ASA and legacy Cisco PIX firewalls.

This Coop is quite big and well stocked. But the staff is often confused and sometimes even rude. This might be because a lot of the customers are rude too, which can be observed if you take a look how they behave on the parking lot. Therefore not my favorite Coop around.

It was DELICIOUS! The staff was very friendly, the meal was very well served. If you want to eat something extraordinary in Croatia, this is the place to go. I will be there again, that is sure!

The old Isle, formerly owned by Tito, is a very nice place. You are going to see a beautiful piece of nature. I was there 3 times and saw: Peacocks, deers, a wide variety of birds, zebras and elephants. Renting a golf cart is recommended because you won't see a lot by walking. Otherwise you might use one of the guided tours which is using a wheeled train. or you may use a bicycle to get around. During summertime it is quite hot and not a lot of shadowed places. This is why you should drink a lot. The restaurants at the entrance, especially the one by the hotel, is recommended.

One of the rare Mexican restaurants in Croatia. The food is good, the portions are enormous. But you may have to wait quite long until it gets served and having a table without reservation during dinner time is nearly impossible.
