I almost missed it: NixOS 21.05 is out! Again, a lot of work seems to have been placed in this release. For more information: nixos.org/manual/nixos/stable/

My lock picking kit.

All it took was two bobby pins to open a dead bolt with a lost key.

Took 2 minutes with no experience. Makes you wonder about security.

Some freecad assembly4 love. I hope this helps some people to get to grips with this tool.

#CVE-2021-3156 sure looks nasty: seclists.org/fulldisclosure/20

Privilege escalation through 'sudo' using a 10yo vuln, this is going to impact about every linux machine there is. #cybersecurity

So, I wanted to open a Zed encrypt (secure) archive, but Zed encrypt was not packaged in Nixpkgs (and thus available on NixOS). I could have used a virtual machine to install the provided Debian package, but it would have been over in 30 minutes. Instead, I decided to write a derivation: library path overwrite, library preload, C code for overloading syscalls and change hardcoded path, wrapper scripts: in short, it just works! It took about ~9 hours of work. Totally worth it.
