A short travel from broken metal chunks to "undocumented user accounts" and other security holes. There will be a recap of security problems from well known and also lesser known products presented. IT resp. computer security is an interesting area. Not only for criminals but also for scientists, programmers and users. We all should know that 100% security does not exist. Therefore I would like to underpin this statement with this lecture. 2018 & 2019 was a blast in case of security disasters. B0rken processors, authentication bypasses all around, behind every corner a Remote Code Execution waiting for you and sometimes even some 0days jumps out of nowhere. I want to review together with the audience the best security disasters from 2018 and 2019. Maybe we can reveal some trends that are happening in the disaster industry. Besides having an entertaining lecture I want also reflect on consequences of such security failures and what we can hopefully learn about it. If the demo gods are not on holiday, I will present a live demo. You will probably see your software and hardware differently after this lecture.
