@cgiffard No Internet access, no CPAN. The core problem is that the FTP server can’t return full directory listings, so I need to use perl to find files that match a certain glob/regex, then use ncftp to retrieve them (or Net::FTP, I guess).
@cgiffard I’m having to deal with a highly locked down system, no compilers, and only old Perl libraries. It has Net::FTP, which is what I needed, I just need to use Date::Calc properly to get output in the right format and execute some system calls.
@cgiffard I think that’s the transparency in their response they are missing - how it specifically happened, the timeline, and how specifically they responded. They’re asking a lot of companies to trust their comms in the Slack sw/hw, after all.
@cgiffard Meh, it’s not about that. Plenty of secure libraries, and coders who can do the right thing. Not everything is about audits/testing/compliance. They definitely could have done better though. I did hear somewhere they use bcrypt though.
@cgiffard Like a lot of immature startups, they run before they can crawl; IT security is tough to convince people to start off with due to perceived barriers and costs. Their response has been mostly okay.
