I've always been anxious about putting my stuff on GitHub.
However, I did upload a project of mine there.
Thoughs few minutes after uploading it:
"Omg, is anyone judging how bad my code is?"
"I'm sure they will criticize it."
"O shit, I forgot a // TODO in there."
"O shit did I upload my credentials by mistake?"
"Does this commit message sound right?"
"Should I commit more often?"
"Do I commit too often?"8
I’ve found a variant of a variant of Mirai in a client’s server, tried to remove it, failed, shut off the server and disconnected it.
The server was our ownership but was situated at the client’s building in their network.
We asked for this server to be in a DMZ segregated from the actual production network just because in the production network there’s the core business as well as credit card data.
They failed to implement our requests and they got hacked.
I hope I discovered the threat in time, but I’m quite sure some head will fall off.
Hell, I’m sorry for those guys but I love my job ❤️
I traced back the malware maker/s and dumped their VPS just because.2
Who needs Mr. Robot or all that hacker shows, if reality is just as crazy:
I was getting bored with programing cause a majority of it is boilerplate code then i heard of the Mirai virus. It infected alot of iot devices so I decided to look at it and it was written in golang. It is a beautifully written botnet even though they're parts where it could have been better. So i looked more into golang and saw that it could cross compile pretty easily and could build self contained binaries really easily. On top of all this i saw the smallest docker containers with golang programs so i looked into it more and kept finding more and more that i liked. Easy library packaging, concurancy without boilerplate, quick servers, and the libraries from other devs that did all kind of great things4
