Based on your response I don’t think it’s a big deal. The point is you knew wanacry was SMB. In my early years of security they asked port, protocol questions. I would be surprised if the interviewer heard.

You could always follow-up with an email clarifying. As a hiring manager I would appreciate this. It shows you pay attention to what you relay to the client and care about your quality

Smh. But what does knowing that do for the interviewee? Yes it's well known but I just Google port numbers when I don't know them. Seems like a useless question imo

I think you'll be fine, sure the number was wrong but the thought process was the more important part of the response.

At least you know what a port is

Well.. There goes my interview.. 😩

I just received a job offer at a company I'm very interested in working for (yay!). Their salary offer, however, is at the bottom end of the range specified in the job ad. In my initial interview, I said that my salary expectations align with the range specified by the ad. So, my question is do I ask for more? Or do I just accept the offer? The company benefits are decent and I would get stock options, and it's fully remote - if that influences your answer.

What do y'all think?

I am thinking about quitting my job next month and traveling for a couple months and then would apply for school in the fall. Would that be something that is looked down upon from the admission officers point of view since I would technically be unemployed when I’m applying or is it fine if I talk about traveling and the international experience etc?
