Re: Sauce, goose gander.
Crikey, X5-332960073452, I didn’t realise that could be ambiguous. Sorry for that.
Stephen Ward was found guilty of living off immoral earnings (money obtained from Rice-Davies and Keeler among others) – the trial having been instigated after the embarrassment caused to the government.
Whilst being cross-examined at Ward’s trial, Rice-Davies made a riposte which has since become famous. When James Burge, the defence counsel, pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or even having met her, she dismissed this, giggling “Well he would, wouldn’t he?” (often misquoted “Well he would say that, wouldn’t he?”). By 1979, this phrase had entered the third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, and is occasionally referred to with the abbreviation MRDA (“Mandy Rice-Davies applies”) ……. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandy_Rice-Davies#MRDA

Re: How much can VPS hosters see in your memory?
Are 0day exploits even real or a conspiracy?…… Anonymous Coward
Yes, …. they are both ….. and that makes them extra tricky and sticky ….. and some would tell you that makes them almost impossible to deal with, although as is the case in so many things, one can make a seriously generous payment akin to a ransom or danegeld contribution to that which and/or those who can assure one that their possible participation in the program can be either permanently halted and/or temporarily transferred elsewhere.
AC, you have stepped into the world of quantum with that question. A space/place where a this can be also a that, and together entangled, able to display something else altogether quite different and novel.
And given the epic havoc it can easily deliver, the most lucrative of developments which would quite happily richly reward one for doing next to nothing. And there is always available too, the exorbitant bonus due should one be able to ensure no abuse or misuse of the development by others who may be au fait with the catastrophic vulnerability to exploit and experiment with, for such will always lead in directions never before imagined as so easily possible. And that is what makes it so extremely valuable and frighteningly dangerous.
However, …… c’est la vie, mes amis, n’est-ce pas?

Re the comment title, AC, and the question …… What could possibly go wrong if the host can read the guest memory without the guest’s knowledge?
Probably, and therefore definitely, everything …… and then next up is writing to it. Just for protection you understand, 🙂 ….. but which is really a novel projection for colossal exploitation.

Re: The Nation State seeks to maintain its Monopoly on Hacking

But of course, AC, that is a major leading vital part of the Greater IntelAIgent Game being played.
“Tis a Stealthy Phantom of a Real Enemy …. or Almighty Friend …. you have Zero Current Future Knowledge of, and therefore No Means or Memes of Remote Virtual Command with and for an EMPowering Overall Control.
Certainly not the wisest of dumb moves, to open up a live attack vector on such subjects and/or objects so relatively unknown and practically invisible and intangible ……… ie Presently Untouchable, but then Einstein had that false move of an operation covered and identified as to source whenever he shared ……. Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.
However, whenever every cloud has a silver lining, it is as a gift which just keeps on constantly giving …. and in a world/worlds of much smarter incredibly intelligent beings, the supplier of awesome limitless bounty.
