A very interesting computer security video by Josh Stone at Nolacon 2019.

Care to give us a clue as to why it is interesting?

As it stands it isn't interesting enough for me to spend 50mins of my little remaining life on it.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
Glider pilot's aphorism: "there is no substitute for span". Retort: "There is a substitute: skill+imagination. But you can buy span".

Its not, unless you already have an interest in Forth or a serious interest in PC security.

TLDR: its a minimalist RAM resident Forth kernal, running on a possibly remote Windows target, which does its normal I/O on the host controlling it, similar to an embedded Forth, + the rest of the Forth, as usual written in Forth, + a bunch of Forth utility programs for stealth 'black hat' hacking.

So it seems Forth has just been rediscovered :)

I was a member of the Forth Interest Group back in the 90's.

The Church of Forth is calling and it’s only slightly more painful to deal with than Scientology.
