Protip: whenever updating your linux kernel, don't 'autoremove' the old ones until you're sure you've done reboot.

Wow, that's a graph that's a real sucker punch to the gut. For reference this is payroll job change numbers for the last 15 years or so. The dip on the left is the 2008 housing crash. The crater on the right is this April...

It is amazing that this sort of thing can still happen: ...the list was compiled by scanning the entire internet for devices that were exposing their Telnet port. The hacker then tried using (1) factory-set default usernames and passwords, or (2) custom, but easy-to-guess password combinations. Telnet? Default passwords? In 2020?
