Behind basic auth

Basic authentication is one of the simples methods of providing credentials to access resources. Today I’m going to take a look on it and provide you with an example of a web page utilizing this mechanism written with PHP and Apache. How does basic authentication work? On request to a protected resource, the server sends […]

It has some features that seem to be rarely used but could help you with process management or at least make your terminal look cooler.

How is blacksheephacks.pl attacked?

AH-64 attack helicopter

Since the very beginning of the existence of this service I was sure that people visiting me would sooner or later start attacking me. Maybe not with helicopters like in image but in a more intangible way. I’ve also said that I’m OK with it as long as responsible disclosure is used and I’m even […]

Issues with JWT

I hoped this would never happen, but here we go. I have problems with managing to deliver an article for Wednesday not because I have so little time, but because I have no idea for an article. I’ve fooled around a little bit with network recon labs on Pentester Academy, I’ve fooled around python imports, […]

A Very Different Hello World

How to write a shellcode in assembly to display “Hello, world?” After last week when I barely had time to scratch my head and I had to transfer my fiancee’s website to a different hosting (and finally learn something about how does the dns system work) I am back to coding for myself. I decided […]

CSRF Protection – Part 2

Fun of bypassing CSRF protection - Putting giving a request a session cookie

Before I begin, I owe you an apology. In previous part I told that I would like to describe the CSRF protection mechanism, but when I got down to coding, I thought that this would be rather tedious and uninteresting. If you want to see how it works, just go to Flask’s WTF forms extension […]

CSRF protection – part 1.

Fun of bypassing CSRF protection - Putting giving a request a session cookie

CSRF – Cross Site Request Forgery is an attack in which the user performs unauthorized actions on a web page they are signed in to. In this article I will describe the theory behind it and in next part (available here), I’ll give you some code to fool around with. What is the problem? Imagine […]

First steps with radare2

OK I might not be going to make math at all, not because my last experience with chemistry was about 6-7 years ago in my high school. After all I like command-line tools after having Linux as my primary driver for some time (and maybe again in near future ;)), however, my relationship with VIM […]

Simple assembly program on MacOS

While going through shellcoding course on Pantester Academy I though I would like to check how the code in the course would look like on MacOS. On Linux this was pretty straightforward: Set one syscall (mov rax, 1), to write to standard output (mov rdi, 1), enter hello_world string, enter its length, call, set another […]
