if you did the "twitter family tree" thing that's going around, you should probably revoke access to the app and report it
They use their API access to follow an account from your account and mute it so you don't notice
I have such a burning hatred for people on Twitter who try to play the age card to win debates. Most of my childhood was wanting to talk to "adults" about my interests in Computer Science or Physics and getting "awwww, it thinks it can do science 🥰".
Other direct issues women have openly expressed to me or I’ve experienced myself: pay inequality, sexual harassment in the workplace or at trade events, active physical threats of violence, I can continue.
Hi @ECCOUNCIL, you know how this reads?
- ‘women can’t, so why bother?’
- ‘women can’t so why bother?’
- ‘women aren’t interested unless you pat them on the head’
It’s patronizing and sexist.
But here are some actual issues women face in Cybersecurity:
Um @ECCOUNCIL were all of these answers intentionally wrong? The issue is ACTIVE discrimination, toxic behaviors in the tech industry, and systemic forces that push or keep women out. Simply "encouraging" women isn't going to fix it. A bad look for EC-Council right here.
This is lame. In Pwn2Own, if you hack a fully patched system, you win. I don't care if the vendor knew about the vuln. If they knew about it, they should have patched it. This is a win, plain and simple.
It's a partial win. Despite the great demonstration (with ASCII art), the bug used by @alisaesage had been reported prior to the contest. It's still great work, & we're thrilled she broke ground as the 1st woman to participate as an independent researcher in #Pwn2Own history.
