Just saw @dildog on birdsite bring up a negative leap second(which we have this year) being used for a replay attack on crypto currencies... and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

@thegibson @dildog I'll laugh if someone has a 0day collision attack waiting in the wings.

@thegibson @dildog phk has been begging for years to end leapseconds. Even the timelords we trust NTP with aren't taken seriously

@TheGibson @dildog last I checked there won't be a leap second this winter or next summer, beyond that hard to predict . It could keep slowing down in which case we'd get a negative in a year or two...
