>zero day discovered in FFmpeg
>implying freetards and open sores developers can do anything right
HAHAHAHAHAHA! PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE MASTER RACE WINS AGAIN! LINUX BTFO AS USUAL!
zero day is found in prorietary software all the time. Only difference is that proprietary software takes weeks and months to fix it and might not even know about it, while free software is fixed and patched the same day.
> zero day discovered in *insert any FOSS here*
> haha rekt freetards on suicide watch
> zero day discovered in *insert any proprietary soft here*
> software owners refuse to even admit it, let alone make a fix
Any program that isn't patched because it's bundled with ffmpeg is fucked. It'll take a long time to fix this mess
I rather trust proprietary flash over freetard crap that doesn't work
Stay assblasted freetard
I swear there's something bigger going on. Not just /g/ has been affected in the last few weeks. There are /b/-tier "humor" threads popping up on several boards. Uninformed, unfunny and vulgar shitposting has visibly gone up.
Does some large English speaking country have school holidays? What is going on?
A zero-day vulnerability in the FFmpeg open-source multimedia framework, which is currently used in numerous Linux kernel-based operating systems and software applications, also for the Mac OS X and WINDOWS platforms, has been discovered recently by Russian programmer Maxim Andreev in the current stable builds of the software. It appears to let anyone with the necessary skills hack a computer to read local files on a remote machine and send them over the network using a specially crafted video file. Arch Linux devs already rebuilt their FFmpeg packages without the AppleHTTP and HLS demuxers.
Non-Arch users BTFO!
Great post, you seem like you've been here for many years.
>Removes the vulnerable and otherwise useless components with a single additional compiler instruction
Right... Then again we are talking about microshills here and they tend to know fuck all about software as they're only here from /v/ because of gayman hardware.
That was my first post in here. Damn you sure are butt blasted over this whole open source ffmpeg fiasco!
>Vulnerabilities in closed source software found all the time
>Threads never get made because of how common they are
>Somehow every single vulnerability in open source software is worthy of it's own thread
Right... Well I guess microshills are naturally going to feel threatened with all the spying found in windows 10 as they reacted about the same way to vista being so shit back in the day. God it was funny seeing them rage at apple's PC vs Mac ads that mocked how bad vista was.
You little piece of shit, do you even know what is ffmpeg and where it is used? Being a winbabby is fine, being an annoying faggot is on a completely different level
>God it was funny seeing them rage at apple's PC vs Mac ads that mocked how bad vista was.
You mean like how Linux users have raged on obscure forums for the past 20 years over windows and continue to do so?
Pretty funny, somtimes I take my kids to these forums and we laugh like looking at monkeys doing stupids at the zoo!
>Windows will not provide changelogs for their updates
>Wincucks will not even know if it is fixed for them
MY FUCKING SIDES
You know what they say, ignorance is bliss.
Picture related pretty much says it all about microshills and their view on security.
This is getting ridiculous.
Have you ever looked at the change logs of the average Microsoft or Oracle patch day?
>By the way here is a bulk of 63 fixed CVEs with remote code executions, use after free and privilege escalations that were open for months. You are on your own till the next patch day in N weeks btw.
Whenever there is a single issue in an OSS project everyone makes a huge fuzz about it even gives it a name and a fucking logo. You guys really need to calm down about this, OSS projects usually handle issues like that very responsibly, make every aspect of it public and fix the issue with a fast response time.
