    Short version - if you are using a *nix based device with a 3.8 kernel (the about section of your Droid settings menu or other device usually has this info) upgrade it IMMEDIATELY!

    If you cannot for some reason (update is unavaiable or no longer provided) discontinue use of the device on the NET (which includes data for cell phones)

    If your phone is unable to be updated GET a NEW phone. Even if it uses SELinux as it doesn't protect you it only makes the exploit more difficult

    Isn't it awesome when an entire generation of misguided twits is allowed to partake in such an eye opening social experiment.

    Seriously, what else did they expect? Manners are gone, morals are questionable, and the educational system is a total disaster.

    Good Times

    ok, i have been using it for like 2 years now

    its time to OFFICIALLY ENDORSE a product/service

    https://lastpass.com/

    pay $12 a year. just fucking pay it. bitch at me in 12 months if it isnt worth it

    very secure encryption (recovering lost passwords can be "problematic" if you dont secure your shit, as in pen and paper)

    password manager

    the tech is solid. been audited repeatedly. thats why it is hard to recover with a lost password. they dont have a key to get in

    particularly during signing up new accounts, this shined

    every password you have can easily have a 16 character (more) randomly generated, saved, secure, and portable password assigned to it that you never have to even think about and is secure and safe

    lastpass is the sweet spot, in terms of price, security, and convenience all rolled into one. in fact, its even better than a "sweet spot"

    it is near perfection

    ive used lastpass for years, before they were even known as lastpass.
    they are fucking awesome! its worth pointing out that its 'freemium', meaning its free to use on your home pc/lappy, but the mobile phone app costs 12/yr

    the mobile is where it shines, tho. i wouldnt consider using the free one unless you are using a flip phone or something

    A great lesson in why production level software should not depend on a codebase outside of the developers control.

    Lazy.

    IF you have no choice but to rely on shared libraries the code should be maintained locally and developers should have the capability to patch code that is rendered useless for ANY reason.

    Lazy people who want to save time be reusing code from other projects should be prepared to get fucked in the back end when they aren't watching their six.

    I'm surprised this is the first time we've heard about something like this, personally.

    Even if this is true, not because you posted it but because this is so incredulous that someone who has the wherewithal to build and run a web hosting company that is Linux based would make a 'mistake' of this magnitude.

    Insurance scam perhaps? I guess it's possible someone is that stupid.

    Where are the offsite redundant backups? Where are the on-site redundant backups? Where are the cloud based backups?

    How was this jackass able to get bonded and certified as a web host without due diligence?

    If he's not bonded and certified, then it's on the client.
