After BH and Defcon links

I haven't gone and verified the accuracy of these, but it came off the internet so they must be true. :) #19 is my favorite.

Ok, I never used 10,000 of them, but they stole my high school gag!

Someone actually wrote down the unwritten rules!

People actually going out of they're way to buy a magazine BECAUSE of the advertising. Only one thing can manage that.

So cool.


Not than I mind the male fantasy characters in todays video games, however women deserve they're own genre. Must be a huge market for type of game, but there again is the mystery, what women do want? For men, its easy. :)

new record: 3 posts in one day

I'm officially a blogger! I feel so honored.

But the reason for this post was to draw attention to the spectacular picture now being hosted by Lex. Enjoy.

Every once in a while I get quoted in the press. So I figured I'd start posting them up here. Maybe I'll go and back-post some of the older ones when I get some time.

Cops and strange event links

I guess being a Cop means you get called out on some really strange incidents. Some of these makes you wonder how you explain "how your day went" to someone else. I wonder if this level of cruelty has always been here or is increasing. Hard to tell since brings access to everything world wide.

I think I know of good punishment for this woman.

ABC News (Australia) TV Interview

Wow, an actual honest to goodness blog post.

Today I was interviewed for an ABC News (Australia) show called Four Corners. Its a 45 minutes show similar to the PBS Frontline we have in the states. The subject matter was phishing and identidy theft. The whole process took about 3 hours to film. This was really an interesting and entertaining experience. I believe this was my second TV appearance and I think I'm getting more comfortable with the idea. We'll see if the final results show me in a relaxed state or a jabbering tech0-ninny.

As part of the filming, they allowed me to do a phishing demonstration using a XSS vulnerability I found in ABC's website. I call it Phishing with Superbait. I created a FAKE news story appear on the REAL website stating the reporter won a Pulitzer and also linked to Al Qaeda. This hack is different than normal fake website scams because it originated from the legit website instead of a rouge server. So the URL looks perfect in every way. Both the reporter and producer were amazed that such a thing was possible.

I'm not sure when this will air, but they'll be supplying me with a DVD.

Real World Web Hacking URL's

Myself and Ofer from Breach created a Real World Web Hacking URL's web page that many have found incredibly useful.

"A compiled list of news sources, specific to real-world websites, describing an actual web application security hack. Most media accounts of website hacking incidents contain precious few details about how the compromise was carried out. Only occasionally we'll see descriptions of parameter tampering to uncover someone else's order details or the infamous SQL Injection . These are the links we can directly attribute to web application security failures."

1up gaming links

This is a great article describing the "secondary" gaming market. Details exploits and what they are now used for in combination with sweat off-shore "farming" shops. Things are getting organized and sophisticated nowadays in the MMORPG space. Now a part of me says, perhaps I missed out on something when I quit UO. But it seems to me the game makers are looking at all of this the wrong way and leaving money on the table for what can only be described ready market.

From sweatshops to stateside corporations, some people are profiting off of MMO gold.

Yep, basically why I don't watch TV much.
