Received a Customer Reference
It is not that I actually got a reference, but I sent an email to all my customers regarding the zero day exploit from Microsoft:

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-mshtml-zero-day-defenses-bypassed-as-new-info-emerges/

I told them all to be aware and gave them handy advice without much text.

One of them, let's call him Mr. R. responded immediately, obviously in German so I will translate it:

"Thank you very much, that is important to us, please keep the good work!"


Hamza helped me actually since he pointed to this vulnerability

Used Django
Programmed in Python
A couple of days ago I started to use Django for a private project. I wanted to learn more about the structure of that framework and how to quickly setup webapps, since I often feel the need for a quick webapp to solve particular problems.

I thought I might share with you the following:
  • Part of the Entity Relationship diagram
  • Part of the "Models" in Django

Nothing new, nothing special, but new fun for me.
Anyway I started to make a data processing addendum (DPA) generator based on modules, products, datatypes etc. It can be very complicated to create the correct DPA for a company that has different modules, handling different data within their products.

Interestingly I found it really helpful to create the database according to python classes. Do you remember the CakePHP Bakery? That was great in 2009 but I am happy with Django's approach here.

Reading a book
AI is an interesting and terrifying technology. We - europeans - fail miserably in getting ahead, as it seems. I am sure there are some nice exceptions out there.

I have not finished the book but I recommend it to everyone who is interested in learning about how the chinese approach is different from the us, regarding startups, investing and working on technology.

Here is the book: https://amzn.to/3DpueV5

Wrote a Blog Post
How do you recognize an email as malicious?

Disclaimer: There is already much written in English, so my my blog is in German.

To be honest, it is quite simple sometimes: Don't click on links! Navigate to the service contacting you and check manually whether the email is fake or not.
