    Wow,

    Hows this for Friday Arvo Fuckery....

    Get a call from beancounting central, document that they printed to PDF with a watermark from excel, doesn't show the watermark when viewed on foxit PDF reader, me being cynical go over and sure enough it doesn't show up... open it in foxit phantom (As you can see i fucking HATE ADOBE products with a passion), and sure as shit you can see it. so after fucking about for a bit, i try chrome and edge, and yup, watermark shows up.

    So i try one more time in foxit reader, and i am dragging the app across both screens, and sure as shit, the fucking watermark turns up.... turns out one of the bloody monitors (Twin monitor setup) had the brightness settings up enough to actually make the watermark disappear, whereas chrome and edge were opening up by chance on the screen with the lower brightness.... FMD time to go home after that, it is friday arvo.

    I feel like exploit rule 34 exists:
    "If an exploit exists, there will be a cryptominer designed to leverage it"

    Indeed, Adobe didn't actually factor into the story at all, bcann just hates them so he took the chance to get in a dig...

    Yeah it was just a super bizzare coincidence with monitors, and a watermark, that obviously when you up the brightness, literally turns transparent. i might have to make a video of it, it really was a WTF kinda moment, when i dragged the app across screens ... and like magic, the watermark appeared.

    We don't even have adobe products on this network....

    And attached...

    Probably was a windows OS, so MS is the issue, fits my cognitive bias. ;)

    Slightly harder to decrypt, but better compression.
