When Random Isn't (orlp.net)

So there were two environments: an insecure one where you can get all information but can’t act on it, and a secure one where you can act but can’t get the information needed for automation.

An evil idea came in my head: random number generators (RNGs) used in computers are almost always pseudorandom number generators with (hidden) internal state. If I can manipulate this state, perhaps I can use that to pass information into the secure environment.
