Easy way to get root privileges, part 1.

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Some hours ago i was asking for some help at the IRC channel of a really large hosting company. The IRC channel is not an official support channel for this company, but some admins and company staff are kind enough to be there in order to help people, etc.
And well, the following took place. Keep in mind that i have replaced both real nicknames and also any occurence of the company name for the sake of privacy.
Enjoy :)

[RandomKid] By the way, the cookies **Hosting Company** use are no good :(
[RandomKid] anther time why, I think they can be poisioned.
[RandomKid] Will try safari now.
[HostingCompanyGuy] why not just bookmark your control panel?
[HostingCompanyGuy] RamdonKid: weren't you the same person that thought you could get root access to a server just because of an "insecure" upload form?
[RandomKid] hmmm good idea
[DiegoMax] ...
* RandomKid doesn't think, me knows.
[HostingCompanyGuy] lol
[HostingCompanyGuy] still waiting for you to show me how
[DiegoMax] kids....

Switching servers…

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Hi there all, just a quick note to inform you that i am switching servers in the following days.
I’m going to move this blog to a dedicated server provided by the guys at SolarVPS, why ?
Simply because i have several servers with them already so i know their service quality, also because they have an unbeatable price / features relation, and because their support is just from other world, one of the few big companies where you still can talk (chat) with the CEO eventually.
So, expect some DNS downtime in the following days. :)
