If you thought the security holes in Internet Explorer were large enough to push a G-class star through, then you haven't seen anything yet. A new report released by the prestigious firm of Internet Security ® Us, Inc., warns that "organic-based holistic HTML parsing systems" (i.e. the human brain) pose the greatest threat to Internet security.

Many geeks have tried to avoid the growing insecurity of mainstream Web browsers by rendering HTML pages directly in their heads. However, it appears this solution is actually worse than the disease.

"Whether you access the Web through wget, telnet, avian carriers, or by whistling directly into an acoustic modem, you cannot escape from this vulnerability," said Wolf Kryir, spokesperson at Internet Security ® Us. "We have escalated the criticality of this problem from MODERATE to WE'RE ALL SCREWED."

The exploit is made possibly by the fact that the entire brain runs under a 'root' account that has full privileges. "As a result of this design flaw, once an attacker gains a foothold inside the brain's wetware, the entire body is then ready for their evil bidding."

Potential examples of this vulnerability include:

Daniel Robbins agreeing to work for Microsoft

Eric S. Raymond choosing the BSD license over the GPL

Microsoft engineers embracing security (the jury is still out on this one)

Top executives at Novell dropping KDE support

Mac OS X developers embracing Intel hardware

Scott McNealy's erratic business decisions

@yura87:matrix.orgyura87Make a bootable Tiny Core Linux pen drive with any boot-making tool you prefer, just use the smallest version of the distro.18:09:45
@yura87:matrix.orgyura87 Once booted, do this:
tce-load -wis Xvesa jwm aterm lynx mc
18:10:22
@yura87:matrix.orgyura87 can also add irssi (not sure if gomuks is supported there yet) 18:11:12
@yura87:matrix.orgyura87 * Once booted, do this:
tce-load -wis Xvesa jwm aterm lynx mc
18:12:08
@yura87:matrix.orgyura87since I think tmux doesn't work on Tiny Core, you need Xvesa, JWM and Aterm18:12:42
@yura87:matrix.orgyura87FLWM is a dump18:13:23
