A #langsec take on…:

Okay, so basically the reason mRNA vaccines work is 1) a parser differential between how the immune system interprets an unfamiliar token (the 🔱 nucleoside) and how ribosomes interpret it,

and a subtle semantic bug arising from disparate handling of different representations of an ambiguously representable parse result. The language of mRNA is nondeterministic, and that’s exploitable.

@PowerDNS_Bert’s explanation is really good and you should go read it.

I’m just endlessly fascinated by the way that language, and the mechanisms by which it’s interpreted, constitute an attack surface of whatever end those mechanisms exist to further.
