Twenty Years Of Stage Two Edition

Top Story

  • TipTop's "The One" gluten-free bread is bread.  Sure it's made of tapioca starch and rice flour and - yes - soy, but it tastes like bread, has the texture of bread, doesn't fall apart the moment you butter it, and only costs twice as much as bread.

    It's the breadiest bread I've had since I was diagnosed with celiac back in 2010. 

  • Microsoft has fixed a bug that potentially let anyone hack your Azure Linux servers. (Wiz)

    They silently install a management agent on your servers if you use certain Azure services. The management agent has a hole in it - not so deep as a well, not so wide as a church-door... Actually, it pretty much is. If you don't firewall your server properly, anyone can access that agent to run any code they want without needing anything fiddly like a password.

    It's a double whammy: A remote code execution vulnerability coupled with complete failure to actually check the password. You can just waltz straight in.

  • Microsoft is now offering the option to go passwordless on your Microsoft accounts.  (Bleeping Computer)

    Just like your servers.

    What could possibly go wrong?

1 I suppose ExpressVPN is putting the 'You need a thief to catch a thief' into practice for IT.  It is still not any more reassuring.

BTW Pixy, did something happen to the Australia government lately?  There is only one reason I can think of Australian trying to procure SSNs...And I was pretty sure not even the Liberals would have the spine to stand up to the PRC.
