Another incident which made a Security Researcher cry 😭😭😭
[ NOTE : Check my profile for older incident ]
I was invited by a fellow friend to a newly built Cyber Security firm , I didn't asked for any work issues as it was my friend who asked me to go there . Let's call it X for now . It was a good day , overcast weather , cloudy sky , everything was nice before I entered the company . And the conversation is as follows :

Fella - Hey! Nice to see you with us .
Me - Thanks! Where to? *Asking for my work​ area*
Fella - Right behind me .
Me - Good thing :)
Fella - So , the set-up is good to go I suppose .
Me - Yeah :)
*I'm in my cabin and what I can see is a Windows VM inside Ubuntu 12.4*

*Fast forward to 1 hour and now I'm at the cafeteria with the Fella*

Fella - Hey! Sup? How was the day?
Me - Fine *in a bit confused voice*
Fella - What happened mate , you good with the work?
Me - Yeah but why you've got Windows inside Ubuntu , I mean what's the use of Ubuntu when I have to work on Windows?
Fella - Do you know Linux is safe from Malwares?
Me - Yeah
Fella - That's why we are using Windows on VM inside Linux .
Me - For what?
Fella - To keep Windows safe from Malwares as in our company , we can't afford any data loss!
Me - 😡 *A big face palm which went through my head and hit another guy , made me a bit unconscious*

I ran for my life as soon as possible , in future I'm never gonna work for anyone before asking their preferences .

    Forgive me for asking, but is this a true story? They believe in what they are doing? Someone has to validate, give an ok, to something like that, no? Or its an isokated incident, specifuc of that "Fella"?

    Why on earth did you put so many unnecessary spaces here? You don't need one before a full stop or a comma. xD

    I carry a Linux USB with me all the time so I don't catch human malware when I connect to the world πŸ˜’
