Do I use Medium?

Hendrik Jeremy Mentz:  “I like how @davewiner uses @medium: short, pithy bursts. See his posts on war and terrorism in particular.”

Reading this was weird because I don’t think of myself as posting to Medium, or that I am using Medium. More accurately, my posts fllow from scripting.com to Medium through RSS.

Then I thought about it a bit, let it sink in, and realized it appears to others as if I am posting there, so it’s legit. I do use it. They read it there and that’s how they experience my writing.

This is going to take some getting used to.

The History of SQL Injection, the Hack That Will Never Go Away

An anonymous reader writes with this history of SQL injection attacks. From the Motherboard article: “SQL injection (SQLi) is where hackers typically enter malicious commands into forms on a website to make it churn out juicy bits of data. It’s been used to steal the personal details of World Health Organization employees, grab data from the Wall Street Journal, and hit the sites of US federal agencies. ‘It’s the most easy way to hack,’ the pseudonymous hacker w0rm, who was responsible for the Wall Street Journal hack, told Motherboard. The attack took only a ‘few hours.’ But, for all its simplicity, as well as its effectiveness at siphoning the digital innards of corporations and governments alike, SQLi is relatively easy to defend against. So why, in 2015, is SQLi still leading to some of the biggest breaches around?”

Microsoft yanks Windows 10 November upgrade from download site

Microsoft last week stopped offering Windows 10’s November upgrade as a disk image, shutting down the route many had used to skip the wait as the company slowly rolls out the refresh via Windows Update.

The .iso files are still available, but when downloaded using Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool, they now install the original July 29 edition of Windows 10, not the November upgrade as they did earlier.

“These downloads cannot be used to update Windows 10 PCs to the November update (Version 1511),” Microsoft confirmed in the revised page dedicated to downloading Windows 10 when viewed from a Windows PC.
