A few months ago I made one of the largest decisions in my life - to leave my
PhD position at the University of Canterbury and go out into the world and get
I am wonderfully excited to announce that I am now a Sustaining Engineer at
Canonical, the company which sponsors
I started on the 11th of March 2019, and the last four months I have settled
into my role nicely.
One of the major advancements in recent technology is the rise of cloud computing,
and to be perfectly honest with you, I really don’t understand how the whole
cloud thing works.
So, I’m going to start a series of blog posts where I will deploy some cloud
services, and learn how they work.
Today we will learn how to deploy a Ceph cluster on Ubuntu
19.04 Disco Dingo, so get ready, fire up some VMs with me and follow along.
We will cover what Ceph is, how to deploy it, and what it’s primary use cases
Let’s get started.
Here we are, back for more TimeLock excitement. Let’s see what’s in store for this article, where we pull apart and attempt to find vulnerabilities in TimeLock 1.7.
A little while ago u/cryptocomicon posted a new announcement of TimeLock 1.7 to Reddit:
Looks like I’m getting some advertising of my blog =) Thanks u/cryptocomicon! Maybe it will introduce some people to reverse engineering.
Challenges are fun, so let’s jump into it.
All right, I hope you liked the previous articles on TimeLock, because here is another one! This will be my fourth bug bounty now. As always, interesting reverse engineering followed by an awesome Bitcoin reward awaits!
A little while ago u/cryptocomicon posted a new announcement of TimeLock 1.5 to Reddit:
I can’t turn down a good challenge, so lets get started!
If you have been reading this blog, you have probably noticed how all the debugging and analysis of applications have been on Windows executables, and although I did create my own Linux distribution, Dapper Linux, I haven’t written much about debugging on Linux.
Time to change that. Today, we are going to look into how debugging Linux kernel crash dumps works on Ubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish. Fire up a virtual machine, and follow along.
We will cover how to install and configure
kdump, a little on how each tool works, and finding the root cause of a basic panic.
Let’s get started.
