Um, 1) How did no one notice a drug we've been using since the 1970s is very explosive
2) How did anyone NOT think THAT drug was explosive? LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT ALL THAT NITROGEN.
I knew most #electronics probe holders are outrageously expensive and there must be some "makeshift" versions that cost less. What I didn't expect is that all of those cheap ones are all marketed for hacking ECUs on cars. Apparently car modding is a big enough thing to give vendors an incentive to sell cheap probe holders for that. I guess they can be pretty useful for signals below 10 MHz.

Supply chain, Microsoft, rootkit
Microsoft signed a driver containing a rootkit. This isn't just a "driver with bugs that can be exploited" situation. It's a "driver is calling out to a command and control server" thing.

The whole "All lives matter" thing has got to be one of the dumbest arguments out there. "All lives matter" logically implies "Black lives matter". Missing the point here would seem to require both a grammatical understanding and a lack of even a "Police did bad thing to black guy" level of news awareness. Are these people missing the point this hard, or just that willing to look dumb?

Learning apps compromise security of Nuclear Weapons in Europe: "The flashcards studied by soldiers tasked with guarding these devices reveal not just the bases, but even identify the exact shelters with “hot” vaults that likely contain nuclear weapons."
@fitheach I rented a bicycle using a QR code. The legit QR had been replaced with one that sent info to a crook. The crook rented the bike for me. Then the crook emptied my bank account with endless automated small withdrawals. I rode the bike, ended the rental, the next day saw I had no money. Took months to resolve. So... yes, an interim step would have been preferred.
