This could have happened. Posting it here because it is definitely silly.
Imagine that you have been having problems with some old server in the last months. And that you have a new technician, and that the problems happen when he goes to the data-center (you haven't moved to the cloud, yet). When the problem happens again, you rush to the data center and find out that he is playing his favorite song while working on some nearby servers. You put two and two together, and figure out finally the root cause of the problems that you've been having.
So, what would it take for Davis to discover this one? It has been assigned an official CVE, CVE-2022-38392, so when we have infrastructure security, we might get that one. And then we would have to know the disk's manufacturers, that I believe we don't at the moment. But how would Davis know what music is playing, or who is shouting at the servers?
