On-call, F/OSS in schools, debugging Linux kernel backdoors, and we revisit a previous Baddie “winner”.


Starts at 2m13s.


Starts at 9m36s.

I was drinking the same rum as I have been the previous few episodes. Jthan was drinking a Duchesse de Bourgogne (and he totally butchered the pronunciation) from Verhaeghe Brewery Brouwerij. Paden was drinking a Best Damn Root Beer (as well as the same vodka he’s been drinking in previous episodes).

  • Fanbase name! (11m01s)
    • How do you feel about being referred to as “Syssies”? Let us know!
  • Analysis of a backdoor in the Linux kernel (43m32s)
  • I have a crazy conspiracy theory surrounding the Baddies winner in S1E5 and the data deletion snafu at 1-2-3 Reg. (44m43s)

Sysbadministration Award

In this segment, we highlight system administration mistakes. Think of them as the IT equivalent of the Darwin Awards. (47m22s)

An unknown sysadmin caused medical equipment to fail because it isn’t compatible with anti-virus, and a scan was scheduled during a procedure. Thankfully the patient is okay, but it could have gone a lot, lot worse.


  • I mention that there are Phrack packages in Arch; I was mistaken.
  • Additional SFX used in this episode were from “Hallelujah Chorus” by George Friderich Handel (of Messiah) (Standard YouTube License)
