Actually they have a very good understanding of what happened in this case.
It's nothing spectacular.
In the past some serious leaks and attacks happened with pretty much nobody paying attention.
This here is a publicity stunt of an old hack by the ANSI (Agence Nationale de la Sécurité Informatique - National Agency for IT Security) saying :
- Since we now have more important prerogatives (very recent change) this kind of attack won't happen again
- Also, we need more money
- And, that will teach you about not following our recommendation. Next time you WILL use an open source alternative to Adobe Reader.
Smart move but the tech part of the story is irrelevant.

Screw the middle step.
If you're confident in your "learning skills", just find a 3 months internship.
That's what I am currently doing and it's amazingly rewarding.
Put your studies on hold for a semester and work.

I can't say I had no experience with the middle step. I did code some little projects. But nothing impressive, really.

Where I am, I have to learn things very fast, all the time if I don't want to drown.
And what is great is that I get help from co-workers whenever I need it ( = tried for hours, didn't manage).
Not everyone can learn vi commands by themselves. The senior cobol dev knows it, just ask.

Seriously, I am just so happy I found this job.
Going back to school soon, but then I can say I know some coding.

Thank you.

With both your explanations, I can finally understand TFA.
It lacked maths. Badly.

Could you just explain your sentence "Of course, the one running the code would be able to figure out exactly what algorithm you're using."
I don't think it means what I (currently) think it means.

(I don't thank you for the Time Cube reference though)
