...maybe not very serious, nothing a program restart wouldn't fix, but still - damage.
I'm sorry, what?
Most browsers don't run in a particularly well secured sandbox. Sure there are additional security features, but the majority of people today still seem to be running (1) outdated browsers (2) as administrators (3) without any clue whatsoever regarding security.
A security flaw exposed from this fuzzer could easily end up being a major trojan outbreak. Not exactly something you fix by restarting Firefox...

Although I must admit this is a bit of a new approach... Ask the rest of the world for a shell on their boxes and mass upload. The point of having a lot of nodes copy the main one is redundancy, if someone *cough* The US *cough* get into Wikileaks stuff, what's to keep them from just logging onto all these servers and erasing the copies too?
Taking a redundant system and making it dependant on a single node... Not too clever.
Had a similar experience on the bus a few weeks ago, five people sitting in a row talking to themselves. I probably wouldn't even have noticed the crazy one if he hadn't been wearing a cape, a trash bag and flip flops (Swedish winter) - and the lack of a phone upon closer observation.
At my previous job we differentiated different tickets through a coloring scheme. These colors were pretty much unique (luckily there weren't that many tickets), but still helped a lot. It's quite effective just using basic pattern matching against the title of the ticket and the background color.
Every now and then, a monitor would go dead and be replaced - Suddenly all the colors had shifted, ranging from miniscule amounts to red going dark brown. Color might be a good idea when you don't actually need to reference anything by it. Documenting colors would be impossible.
And you won't see tactical nuclear weapons being used in the field likely ever, as that is the invisible line in the sand that would justify the enemy using nukes, perhaps on civilian targets. And there is no justification for using them against an enemy without nuclear capability.
Remind me again how WWII ended for Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
To share this kind of information as soon as someone accuses me of doing something wrong is really bad. Especially considering all the frivolous DMCA-crap flying all over the place.
This is the second time this facility has been raided, and I'm sure you all remember the first time."
Of course the Goverment would realize this and I get the impression they don't really approve of when people talk without them listening in...
