Search - "infiltrated"
My boss just revised my report and sent it back with new file names. Memes have officially infiltrated the workplace.8
This morning I was looking in our database in order to solve a problem with a user registration and I accidentally noticed some users registered with unusual email addresses (temporary mail services, Russian providers and so on...).
I immediately thought about malicious users so I dug into the logs and I found that the registration requests started from an IP address belonging to our company (we have static IP addresses). My first reaction was: «OMG! Russian hackers infiltrated into our systems and started registering new users!»
So, I found the coworker owning the laptop from which the requests were sent and I went to him in order to warn him that someone violated his computer.
And he said: «Ah! Those 7 users? Yeah, I was doing some tests, I registered them. My email address was already registered so I created some new ones».
Really, man? Really? WTF6
A guy I work with put some sort of network scanning software on his phone. It reported 2 machines on our network with the word "China" in them.
So I changed the name of my machine to "Russian-Hacker".6
China used a tiny chip in a huge hack that infiltrated Apple and Amazon. The attack—denied by the companies—compromised the U.S. tech supply chain, sources say: https://www.wbca.st/PPrOcew1
I really find it quite annoying when my colleague refactors my code. I personally don't see the point because I find my code more readable, easy to main and intuitive. That of course is a subjective view. Problem is, there aren't any competent colleagues who can weigh in their opinion on disagreements in the team. In fact, I'm pretty sure they aren't even developers, and have some how infiltrated their way in claiming to be a software developer.
Oh yeah, the manager doesn't review our performance or keep up to date with the work people are doing.
I'm not even exaggerating.2
