Well, actually...


quote:

Freeski big air opened its Olympic competition Monday at the world’s first permanent, city-based big air facility, a repurposed steel mill on the west side of Beijing that’s made a stunning backdrop for one of the Games’ newest sports. Freeskiing is taking on big air for the first time as a Winter Games discipline, while the snowboarders will be here next week after debuting the event in Pyeongchang four years ago.

The 200-foot big air structure was built on the site of the former Shougang Group steel mill, China’s first state-owned plant that helped the country become a world leader in steel production. Its billowing smokestacks provided work for thousands but also darkened the sky over Beijing’s Shijingshan District, contributing to the city’s air pollution problem.

The sprawling campus has been converted into a bizarre, yet beautiful, city oasis.

Rusting factories and machinery remain, but the space between has been filled by grassy lawns, glassy ponds and a good deal of greenery. One of the blast furnaces was given a face-lift and turned into a steampunk-style event space with shops, commercial offices and a museum. The yards host dance showcases in the summer, and architects plan to transform one of the massive cooling towers hovering over the big air jump into a wedding venue.

a little concerned about skiing in a place called Freeski in the country that Yetis are from, but the rest of it sounds cool as heck

Could they conceivably broadcast a patch for this?

no, it gets trapped in a boot loop before the patch detector gets a chance to run

So their infotainment systems just execute whatever code it receives? That's awesome.

I'm guessing this is some feature that was built in for the factory or dealerships to OTAP firmware updates?

Toilet Rascal

as far as anyone can tell it goes like this:

1. radio tunes into station
2. station broadcasts bad image in metadata
3. image saved to local cache
4. attempt to load cached image, fail
5. media unit locks up and gets rebooted by watchdog
6. first thing after reboot, immediately try to return to last known state
8. goto 4

resume playback apparently takes precedence over apply patch, or possibly happens so fast the patch process can't complete

Tider skal komme,
tider skal henrulle,
slægt skal følge slægters gang




an image with a mime header but no extension in the filename was sent out by a radio station as part of its stream, which afaik is fine according to spec, but 2016 mazdas crash on that because of bad error handling (maybe they split on period or some dumb poo poo). whether that could potentially lead to RCE is unknown but possible depending on the exact nature of the crash

the theory is the file is now sitting in the mazdas' file system cache and every time one boots up, it tries to read the file and crashes & they cant get reflashed firmware or factory reset because that requires the os to be running & theres no safe boot lol

no, and also no.

it's an image file for ostensibly album art, being broadcast OTA by the station. the infotainment unit caches the broadcast image data and tries to read and display it, and fails due to bad error handling, and then reboots. immediately post-boot it finds the file in cache and attempts to display it, etc.

Oh yeah, I forgot HD Radio was able to transmit album art along with the other metadata. I haven't listened to the actual radio in a car new enough to have that feature.
