Some explanations for title text:

  • a list of millions of prime factors: trivial to produce and useless without knowing the problem they're from
  • a 0-day Tamagotchi exploit: sounds not very useful, unless modern Tamagotchis have internet connection
  • and a technique for getting gcc and bash to execute arbitrary code: unlike other applications, these two programs (especially when used together) are specifically created to let user execute arbitrary code

-- Internet connected tamagotchis you say? -- 06:42, 8 March 2017 (UTC) -- Expanded the details; I know Tamagotchi hacking is a thing, but I'll leave it to someone who actually knows about it to decide whether it's worth mentioning in the page. Also, "a list of millions of prime numbers" could just as well be called "a list of millions of prime numbers", which sounds much less important, but I couldn't think of a brief way to mention that. 09:53, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
