Improbable, but not impossible

As my company’s graphic designer, I took the time to standardize our email signatures. I included our logo as a base64 encoded gif. This method automatically generated a random 8-character name viewable by non-HTML email clients as a downloadable attachment. It was brought to my attention that, in a company-wide email blast and out of 209-billionĀ possibleĀ file names, the file was called: 'fagbadge.gif'.

I quickly followed up with another company-wide email stating it was not of my or anyone else’s doing.

Luckily the email didn’t go to any clients. That would have been hell…
