Weekly Update 187

Spiders! Ok, not your normal start to a weekly update but yeah, we had a bit of an infestation this week which did take the mind of other current events for a while. Much of what's happened beyond that this week has resulted in various tweet storms; the Zoom credential stuffing situation, the Coronavirus tracking app (holy cow that has some "robust" debate around it) and the (seemingly endless) thread of progress as I build up my Ubiquiti network. All that and more in the vid below ?

  2. No, there isn't a "Zoom data breach" and yes, people keep using shitty passwords (c'mon media, it's not hard to report on this accurately!)
  3. The Coronavirus tracking app tweet storm (less than a day on and apparently, it's had 125k impressions so it's clearly getting some traction, but it's divisive)
  4. Speaking of tweet storms, check out my Ubiquiti build! (this project has brought me so much joy ?)
