  • Throwhammer: VU Amsterdam researchers published a report looking at how an attacker can trigger and exploit Rowhammer bit flips directly from a remote machine by only sending network packets.


  • It’s my last day at work.
    11 years across two states. Dropped out of high school, got a GED, lied to a temp agency, and started plugging in computers at 17.
    I start my new Counter-Threat role on Monday.

    It’s been a long journey. I wouldn’t recommend it, but it made me who I am. - @SwiftOnSecurity
