So every once in a while, you come across something in IT Security that just makes you want to cry.

Usually, these are chained exploits that when executed properly have devastating effects.

Take the latest Pwn2Own competition. One of the successful hacks there was epic. And scary.

In a nutshell, an ‘Edge’ browser exploit to get into the Windows 10 VMWare guest, then a bug in the VMWare guest to own the VMWare host. Yes, hacking the VMWare host – from a web page.

That’s scary.

So it’s now been 16 years since the end of TITR (This Is True, Really) News. I still occasionally listen to the old recordings of what we now know as ‘podcasts’ and have a giggle.

Scott, Tony, wherever you guys are, hope all is going well.

If you want to share in on the laughs, I’ve put up the small archive I have on soundcloud.
