Un archivio di tutte le nostre conoscenze che sopravviva ad una nostra possibile (probabile, inevitabile) estinzione. Questo è il progetto “arch mission”.

This morning I woke up with a Twitter storm about 10 vulnerabilities in wpa2: it is bad but the sky is not falling yet.

First of all, both the client and the access point must be vulnerable, if one of them is patched then they are not attackable. If you patch your client you are ok no matter what access point you use.

Debian, Ubuntu and other distributions already released fixes, others will follow. Google will certainly update it's devices very soon (that's why I buy them).

What's bad is that lots of old Android devices and most of the access points will never be updated and will remain vulnerable forever. Most IoT stuff too.

It will hurt, devices will have to be replaced, but it will give us a chance to learn that software updates for security fixes are really important even on IoT and portable devices. When they are not available anymore, the device isn't safe anymore.

If we learn this lesson and change our approach to security updates on devices, we may have turned something bad into something good.

Like most of the protocols designed in the 80s, security wasn't built in from the start. Adding it later is harder.

“The key thing in our industry is to scare the crap out of someone and then come in with a shiny box and say ‘Here you go, this will save you.’ And when that doesn’t work, what do you do? You scare them again, and another shiny box comes in."

Recently discovered medium... Nice place to hang out reading quality stuff.
Might think about writing too...

I've published my vim configuration on GitHub.
#vim can be a full featured IDE with all the bells and whistles of any other IDE but faster, lighter and can be used from a remote shell.
The downside is the learning curve. But it pays back.
