    “Dad, do you need to go to 7-11?” “Dad, do you need to go to the post office?” “Dad, do you need to go to the store?” Guess who turned fifteen-and-a-half last week and got his learner’s permit? (This is a staged photo. Mason will never drive the STI.) When Mason turned fourteen he...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 20 Jun 2017 | 5:54pm CDT

    I needed to verify a SNMP and NTP amplification vulnerability was actually working.

  8. Old Skool NES Raspberry Pi Case

    RobOHara.com | 14 Jun 2017 | 7:00am CDT

    Last year, Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition. It was a game console that looked like a tiny version of the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) from the 80s. It had 30 built-in games and cost $59.95. Nintendo woefully underestimated demand for the console. Stores couldn’t keep them in stock, and when they did hit...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 7 Jun 2017 | 9:01am CDT

    Mentoring: On meeting your **Heroes**I put heroes in asterisks because none of us have paparazzi following us around. I regularly use Val Smith's quote about even the most popular infosec person is like being a famous bowler. Except for rare exceptions, no one outside of our community knows who we are. I've broken into at least one company from every vertical and my neighbor just asks me to help configure his wifi.This topic came up because the person I'm mentoring met "a famous infosec person...

  12. DevOoops: Hadoop

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 5 Jun 2017 | 9:00am CDT

    What is Hadoop?"The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on to...

    Quick notesI wanted to be able to boot the Kano OS in a virtual machine so i could play hack minecraft with the kids and play along with the Kano OS desktop/games.

However QEMU does.This repo (https://github.com/dhruvvyas90/qemu-rpi-kernel/wiki/Emulating-Jessie-image-with-4.x.xx-kernel) had the recent raspberry pi kernels to use with...

Falls es jemanden interessiert, ich bin ja Fan des Uferwegs (beispielhaft rudimentär am Verdi-Gebäude umgesetzt), erinnert mich an das Pariser Seine-Ufer.
