If you have ever installed a program using "curl XYZ | sh" don't worry about what's in the vaccine.

@nihar The vaccine's out of your system within a few days. `curl XYZ | sh` can follow you between computers.

@ghost_letters @nihar No, I've seen that, and I'm aware of it. Heck, I've installed stuff like that myself.

In general, though, it bypasses the security model that lets people say, so it's fun to joke about.

echo [my public SSH key] >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
install the software
