deborah: the Library of Congress cataloging numbers for children's literature, technology, and library science (Default)
Rather than completely retelling the story of how I, two years ago, became a pseudo-lawyer defending an SQL injection attack, I will point you to my housemate's blog post on the Safari Books Online blog about how that became a successful (friendly) PostScript injection last month: "Play New Tricks on an Old Dog: a PostScript Injection Attack".

Things we learn from this includes:

  • You need to protect your code from possible hostile injection.
  • PostScript is a real language.
  • Denis and Marc are awesome.

This year, for what it's worth, I defended "Stacking all of the Gorg in the galaxy on top of each other." Not nearly as funny as the successful injection attack, but a shout out to one of my favorite funny books, The True Meaning of Smekday.
