Will it double-fetch? Browser behavior with `module` / `nomodule` scripts

WannaCry|WannaDecrypt0r NSA-Cyberweapon-Powered Ransomware Worm

  • Virus Name: WannaCrypt, WannaCry, WanaCrypt0r, WCrypt, WCRY
  • Vector: All Windows versions before Windows 10 are vulnerable if not patched for MS-17-010. It uses EternalBlue MS17-010 to propagate.
  • Ransom: between $300 to $600. There is code to 'rm' (delete) files in the virus. Seems to reset if the virus crashes.
  • Backdooring: The worm loops through every RDP session on a system to run the ransomware as that user. It also installs the DOUBLEPULSAR backdoor. It corrupts shadow volumes to make recovery harder. (source: malwarebytes)
  • Kill switch: If the website is up the virus exits instead of infecting the host. (source: malwarebytes). This domain has been sinkholed, stopping the spread of the worm. Will not work if proxied (source).

update: A minor variant of the viru

Cheng Lou - "On the Spectrum of Abstraction" summarized transcript (React Europe 2016)

Cheng Lou - On the Spectrum of Abstraction

Cheng Lou, a former member of the React team, gave an incredible talk at React Europe 2016 entitled "On the Spectrum of Abstraction". That talk is available for viewing here:

It's only a half-hour, but it is mind-blowing. It's worth re-watching two or three times, to let the ideas sink in.

I just rewatched the talk for some research, and wrote down a summary that's semi-transcript-ish. I didn't see any other transcripts for this talk, other than the auto-generated closed captions, so I wanted to share for reference.

"Everything is an expression"... since ES1?

Many languages support "expression-only" semantics, allowing to use any construct in an expression position.

NOTE: the difference between expressions and statements is that the former produce a value, while the later don't.

For example, Ruby's if-expression:

x = 10

What forces layout/reflow. The comprehensive list.

What forces layout / reflow

All of the below properties or methods, when requested/called in JavaScript, will trigger the browser to synchronously calculate the style and layout*. This is also called reflow or layout thrashing, and is common performance bottleneck.

Generally, all APIs that synchronously provide layout metrics will trigger forced reflow / layout. Read on for additional cases and details.

Element APIs

Getting box metrics
  • elem.offsetLeft, elem.offsetTop, elem.offsetWidth, elem.offsetHeight, elem.offsetParent
