Remember when writing profiles about yourself was a cool thing to do? I did one a decade ago for graduating class in school and answered the field "What are you going to do next?" with "Web design or IT security I guess", but didn't expect both wishes to be granted...

In other words, I'm a Cyber Security Consultant now. This may or may not mean more content on here. Stay tuned!

Goodbye niu.moe, hello lonely.town. Follow me over at @wasamasa. I'll flip the account migration switch a bit later.

Fediverse meetup at in workshop room 11. I want to meet all of you in exactly three hours, 12:00!

Another one of my CTF challenges went online, this time it's a file format reverse engineering task. 27 solves and a single support question so far. Fun fact: As awful as it is, the file format is not completely made up and based on something actually featured in a game.

in related news, I can’t stop staring at this 1900 illustration of Baba Yaga by Ivan Bilibin. It’s so, so good

I'd really like a photoshopped version of Phoenix Wright doing his trademark pose, except it says "Injection!"

The web is full of surprising hacks, the "Cneonction" header is one of the more subtle ones: blog.eitanadler.com/2012/10/

Ratet wer sich unverhofft einen Vortrag im örtlichen Hackerspace eingeheimst hat...

Ganz genau, ich habe mich etwas zu voreilig gemeldet und werde am kommenden Donnerstag, den 28. November im @c4 zum Thema "State of Retro Gaming in Emacs" Dinge über Emulation von dem CHIP-8 erzählen: koeln.ccc.de/updates/2019-11-2

Ah, a bluescreen, haven't had one of those in a long time. They've evolved since I've turned one into a 404 page on emacsninja.com/404 and now have a QR code. Perhaps an update to the design is needed...

Mozilla is trying to stay relevant by putting up print ads in public space pointing out how much less invasive these are compared to their digital versions. It would come off more believable a few years earlier, before they gambled their user's trust away.

All new and fresh revamped context-dependent snippets in code-d

I eventually scripted the "port:70 70" query using Shodan's API, wrote lots of jq to select only the results looking like Gopher entries and wrote some more code to extract the URLs and banners from roughly 500 servers. Here's my favorite finds so far:

- gopher://b.bewo.pw <- "This site runs on a Beaglebone Black using a server written in assembly."
- gopher://taz.de <- bloat-free version of a certain German newspaper
- gopher://acm.umn.edu <- "If you came from the Sysadmin Wanted ad, look here"
- gopher://sandokan.tk <- A hacker fraternity hosting a single CVE exploit so far, hopefully more in the future
- gopher://gopher.su:70/1/weebsh <- Someone explaining how and why he put up manga, using sixel of all the things...

There's more of course, feel free to DM me for the full list. Discovering these makes me feel like in the early 2000's, when I've first encountered web portals and manually curated lists of websites.

Why is it even possible to DM yourself. I was already wondering why I wasn't getting any reply, then discovered no user is mentioned in my DM.
