Did a demo of an exploitation to the crew who has to patch the issue (its a large systemic issue. Not an easy patch.)

First demo was showy. And some of the crew thought it looked cool but would be easy to detect.

Brought out the second demo and displayed a real world “quick” attack. Happened in less than a second. Just a blip before the crash. No way to detect or stop.

There was a long silence afterwards.

Everyone was on board. We set about planning on how to fix it.
