>Not sure what private trackers are all about?
The mission of /ptg/ is to promote the highest possible standards of tracker disservice by providing members with opportunities for shitposting development, by recognizing tracker drama competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.

Today I was arguing with my friend about the MacBook. I told him it was shit and a waste of money because it only had one port.

He said that the target audience doesn't need more than one port, and if I need more than one port it's not for me and thus I wouldn't be buying it, and that I had no argument.

I was so fucking angry but I couldn't counter him. Can someone help?

So, any of you guys use a RAID of some short?

I am thinking about setting one up, but I seem to find a lot of people complaining about RAID not being reliable enough for the cost, making most people be better off with manual mirroring in different drives.

/dcsvt/ - Daily C security vulnerability thread

No.60058392 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Previously >>60025712

Welcome to /dcsvg/ where we discuss security vulnerabilities caused by stagnant C/C++ which is preventable by default by modern languages and their compilers.

Use-after-free vulnerability in fs/crypto/ in the Linux kernel before 4.10.7 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) or possibly gain privileges by revoking keyring keys being used for ext4, f2fs, or ubifs encryption, causing cryptographic transform objects to be freed prematurely.

>Exploit summary
This exploit would let an attacker invoke denial of service in Linux. Authentication is NOT required to exploit this vulnerability.

>Caused by
Use after free.
Here’s a simple example of user after free in C, it's a valid C code:
uint8_t* pointer = (uint8_t*) malloc(SIZE);
if (err) {
abort = 1;
if (abort) {
logError("operation aborted before commit", pointer);

>How modern languages tackle this issue:
Like C++, Rust uses the RAII approach everywhere (Resources Acquisition Is Initialization). That means that every variable is deterministically freed when it goes out of scope (= a pair of curly braces). So with “safe” Rust, you NEVER need to worry about freeing memory.
But Rust doesn’t stop there. It goes a crucial step further. It won’t let you access memory that was freed! That’s enforced via the Ownership rules.

In Rust, variables have a property that’s called Ownership.
An owner has the rights to use its data freely. Also, it can lend its data for a limited lifetime (= Borrowing).
Moreover, data can only have a single owner. Thus, the scope of the owner dictates where the data will be freed (via RAII).

Written in C++, it has RAII

Windows 10 Classic Theme

No.60058674 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Even with all the retarded spying and shit, the biggest thing holding me back from 'upgrading' is the fact I can't get anything that looks close to the theme I've been using the past fucking 20 years. Is there any viable way to make Windows 10 look like this? I can't bear the default theme at all; at least with Windows 8 I could use Classic Shell to easily get close to what I want.

Alright, so I couldn't get anything to show up on my monitor, so I powered my PC down and disconnected the GPU so I could plug the monitor into the mobo. After I did that and tried to power on. The fan came on for a second and it wouldn't power on. I plugged the GPU back in and tried it. Same thing.

What the fuck did I do?
