Im at the hospital cafe (Long story, visiting a relative) and i had to do a quick fix on our project and i cant use my laptop atm to do it so this is my current setup
At least managed to do the fix34
So they want me to remove the system that prevents users from registering with passwords that have been leaked online, because “its too much effort for new user to come up with a new password instead of using a same one everywhere and they might give up registering”
Giving up security for convince doesn’t usually end well, does it,7
I hate motion activated lights in toilets, i sometimes "might"get stuck on toilet for a longer periods of time and suddenly the light turn off and i have to open the stall door and wave my hand for light to come back on
Why can't there be sensors in stalls as well or something
Or good old light switch
I do all of my best debugging on toilet4
Aaand once again i have procrastinated so that i have deadline this week and im less than 50% thru with functionality for this deliverable!
Why do i do this to myself4
Something weird, my old contactless visa came apart and i took the contactless antenna and noticed that it doesnt connect to the chip on card in any way but has three stripes that perfecttly overlay the three sectors of magnetic stripe of the card.
Does this model work by actually reading the magnetic stripe when paying contactless?????12
A weird question popped in my mind:
Can you have a website that has functionality without any html, as in the server does not return HTML( api's dont count, neither does a text only stuff, also not wix etc)
But still also has some layout etc...4
I just realized that havent been getting rant notifications from @AlexDeLarge lately and just found out that he has left devrant
Did i miss something?9
From Friday 6 am to Tuesday 6am (108h i think)
I had to get a website up and running so i worked until 2 am and realized that no trains or.busses are going anymore until 6 am so i kept working, then suddenly, thanks to my adhd i went into hyperfocus and didn’t nt leave from the seat (other than to get coffee) until Tuesday morning
I had had so much coffee that my heart felt like it would be home half an hour earlier than rest of my body
After that i stayed home for 3 weeks not wanting to see a line of code or talk to any rubber ducks
Thankfully i was able to recover and apologize to my rubber ducks7
Me Vs a PHP teacher
And to do login, we just do SELECT username WHERE password = (userinput)
Really? Checking raw userinput against plaintext password?
There is no point in doing it securely here because if they want, the students can go take a seperate course on security
So no point in teaching students that they should write their code secure by default and just leave it as a afterthought?
Yes, because this is how i have always done it
Okay, time for a break
*Uses the break to teach all students about sql injection, password hash and salt, rainbow tables and user input sanitizing*
Students to teacher:
He's right, if you dont teach us to code securely by default, we are likely to end up causing a data leak or be hacked, if you dont teach us properly we have no point coming here
*Smiles at the teacher with a face that says: Pwnd*
Alright then, tell me whats wrong in my code
I was so proud that i helped the class understand secure by default principles61
FUCK YOU CSS!
FUCK YOU FOOTERS!
You two deserve to be fucked by a big, rusty, aids infused jackhammers from every single hole, then thrown into a middle of a Mexican jail with mouths gagged open and assholes full of nails!
Why the FUCK is there no simple way to make footers stay WHERE THEY SHOULD STAY13
So you know how people like to sign up with passwords they use everywhere and then ask you how is it possible that someone logged in their account and ruined stuff?
Well on the site in working on i just added a nice feature: when registering the backend checks from the hibp api if the part of the sha1 hash matches a one found in a database of leaked passwords
If it does:Sorry, it seems like this password was found in a database of passwords that have been leaked online, for your protection you cannot use this password here, if you use this password elsewhere, we recommend you change it on those services as well10
I noticed that everyone has some sort of portfolio site and i keep getting asked for a link to mine
So i decided to make one quickly
i hope its not too badly made
What do you guys and gals think?4
Oh crap O_o;
I have a deadline in 4 weeks
Things that need to be done:
Responsive website frontend,
User Dashboard on website
Things that I have skills and time for:
Backend with python and flask - Half Done!
Skills I do not have:
Making anything look good,
Also, I'm willingly doing this for no money.
Why do I keep putting myself in situations like this??????
And in some sick and twisted way, I'm also enjoying it in a way11
OOOKAAY,There is cortana guiding me thru new windows 10 install
With speech control and spoken feedback1
Well crap, i need to make a website for this one startup, but im only a backend developer and even more a pentester
I have less graphic skills than a exploding can of paint
No way can i make the site by just writing code, i NEED graphical tools that help generate the frontend side of things/ drag and drop
Why did i offer to do this...
And for no money may i add12
Does it count as desperate to go in a startup/co-working space for programmers etc (microsoft flux) and taping a big paper to my laptop cover that reads
Please hire me!1
How badly i need a job: I have been considering turning to the worst people ever: recruiters / Headhunters
Yes, i am getting desperate...4
Please add confirmation dialog for reporting profiles
I accidentally reported alice when trying to subscribe
So what if Microsoft acquired GitHub
As long as they dont actively try to make it user hostile i have no problem with it
Microsoft is a big contributor to open source as of lately so there is a chance that this acquisition is a sign that they might be open sourcing more of their stuff
Microsoft also is a huge contributor to linux foundation
Avoiding github because “Microsoft is eeeeeviiiiiiillllll big company with closed source stuff” etc just seems a little bit like overreacting
If they do actively do something to make github worse in the future, ofc i will jump ships
However i dont think that they can afford to alienate the userbase of a expensive acquisition by making something stupid14
I thought that o reily books were a some sort of meme, but then i found this in my house while cleaning4
Well fuck you too spammers
Also, this was in my spam folder, did they use css to make that picture show, individual pixels??10
Gg yesterday, devRant wouldnt open (most likely the stupid bug with those weird symbols)
Just had to update ios but still4
When i was a around the age of 4 or 5 my dad used to torrent kids movies for us, and had to leave the pc on for nights, then one night i snuck up to it and pressed the keyboard for the first time and was thrilled by the realization that i had a lots of buttons in front of me that had some sort of effect on the screen in front of me.
When i was around 6 i was allowed to use the computer few hours per day before the parental controls shut it down, it didnt take all that long to realize that i could change the system timezone and get few more hours of playtime
One time i accidentally opened command line and wondered what it was, after i googled a bit, i found the command “shutdown /a” , which aborts shutdowns and i made my first commandline script that would loop every 4 seconds and abort shutdown if there was one about to happen ( the parental control had a 5 second warning before the shutdown)
Then one time i asked mom to come and extend the time a little bit because i was sick, but she was also sick (we both had a cold) so she didnt want to get up, so she just told me her password which i promptly wrote to the underside of the table
Thats how got hooked on computers, hacking and social engineering
I had that old pc with me until last year when i had to get rid of it when i moved to my own as i had no room for it2
Wait, if i have a open hotspot, legally speaking others are not allowed to connect to it without getting permission from me, right ( as long as the hotspot is not named in a way that leads people to think its a "free" wifi)?
So if i run a mitm on that network and someone were to connect to it and login to a webpage and in process get their login details intercepted by the mitm, it would not be my fault and i could argue that them connecting to my network is in fact a unauthorized access to a computer network and therefore they would be breaking a law, right?7
