I was super confused about how why this dude was working in an office with no A/C, but it turns out that his office is in his home, because he plays video games for a living. His office is where he plays video games, for money. It all makes sense now.

Twitch is like charity.

To follow it up, consider the fact that his thermostat, which measures the ambient temperature to control the climate for the whole residence, is directly behind the TV, which likely puts out a non negligible amount of waste heat.

Is there a term for people tuning out (deliberately or subconsciously) common disclaimers or security warnings?

equifax is doing way better than they were pre breach. Zero impact to the business from losing literally the most sensitive data of all foo all Americans. even the one dude who took the hit for blatantly insider trading and texting his buddies about how they were breached got a plea deal and is probably just gonna get probation

why should anyone care about security warnings? any incident of any size has zero impact on your business anymore, you're better off burning stacks of cash to keep warm than spending it on infosec

"rational willful security ignorance" should be the term

tweet says he just moved into this house and the TV mounting bracket was already there. guess the previous owner was the one who decided that would be a good idea. then this guy just started using it without thinking it all the way through, which while dumb is not *as* dumb

I'm amazed that notepad even does enough stuff with the document data to have a vulnerability (there's no syntax highlighting so I wouldn't think there would be any parsing at all?), but maybe it's one of the new features they recently added?

Edit: I'm going to assume the vulnerability is in the "search with Bing" feature they apparently added because lol why would they add that to notepad?

i mean, notepad does do text layout (break into lines, tab spacing, etc.), and unicode

so i wouldn't be too surprised if it turned out some obscure combination of those things blew a stack buffer
