The <69 words you're no longer allowed to use in Infosec

Per Dan Kaminsky’s suggestion in a twitter thread about GM, as well as the famous George Carlin “Seven Dirty Words” skit, I humbly present for your consideration (and collaboration):

The <69 words you’re no longer allowed to use in Infosec

risk, SDLC, ROI, metrics, data, heartbleed, poodle, goto, 0day, faulty, cracked, cruftsmanship, deathcode, rooted, rootkit, pwn, bot, backdoor, fireworksmode, DIAF, borked, FUBAR, imminent, kludge, overflow, overrun, deadwhale, telnet, vapor, jelly, dirty, reality, segfault, spaghetti, stale, worm, zombie, trojan…

One thought on “The <69 words you're no longer allowed to use in Infosec”
