"I accidentally took down GitHub Actions" by Teddy Katz.

I had considered that this might happen, so I […] deleted my fork, [but the URL] still returned a 404, meaning that I’d accidentally broken everyone’s builds with no way to fix them.

Don't build your systems atop Git shorthashes, kids — They're for display purposes only!

Katz's blog is a great one to follow, with posts on other interesting exploits as well.
