How the Internet is supposed to work. How to break it.
Goddamn world is melting and it could get worse. Some dude in Seattle broke the Internet with a pretty convincing hack. It basically gave any hacker a one in 65,536 chance of taking over basically any website. Not the site per se, but DNS connects any website (indi.ca) to an IP address (18.104.22.168). Hack that and you can redirect hsbc.lk to whatever you want. And hacked it has been. They installed a patch which makes the odds one in 4 billion, but security-wise that’s actually frosted shite. I feel like a Zombie Botnet Army could easily break everything. Then I was reading that if three more major companies go down some CDO deal will be triggered and investors will lose a flood of real cash.
The future is kinda sucking so far. No flying cars, just a bunch of acronyms that ruin your life in slow motion. The DNS is down? CDOs are in default? WTF?
