I know I’ve written before about companies that provide their customers with a masked middle finger. In some cases, more masked than in others. This is a case of a heavily masked middle finger. D-Link has released a patch to fix some security flaws in their system, this patch not only didn’t fix the issues but managed to introduce a new security flaw. As paraphrased by the writer:
“patch to prevent an unauthenticated sprintf stack overflow includes a new unauthenticated sprintf stack overflow.”
I always find it amusing when a company does this kind of crap because, most of the time, they get away with it and more. It just makes me wonder how much crap we’re missing as a tech community.
