We all wanna help our colleagues, right?

 

So when you get an email from someone who is having trouble determining whether his newly discovered vulnerability is exploitable, or wanting to know some details of internals, you'll lend a hand, right?

That part vaguely reminded me of an event during the Michelangelo virus, when a
colleague was called by someone and wanted a consult as a "professional" favour.
His question was, "What's a 'boot sector'?"
