I'm an old open-source independent hacker,

concerned about concepts of ethical hacking, teaching and sharing.

I like to play with shell, perl, lisp (sometime), sed and lot of other languages/environments.

Co-system administrator in several configurations, after various SMEs, I like to sometimes take time to focus on methods that I can improve or re-create (for example to change the level of abstraction).

In this, surfing on differents StackExchange's sites is a good way to boost my inspiration!

comment Correct way to get a number from 0-9 from a random byte?
@AndreasKrey Hmm, no: By using split you have 2x63% = 125% chances of having a correct number, while instead you only obtain 98% chance by each byte read from random generator.

comment Can “cat-ing” a file be a potential security risk?
Hmmm I agree, @mr.spuratic's answer is rich. But I bring useable tools to make tests easier, (hope you've tried it)... Anyway I got my 1st gold medal \@SO with this answer! So it's good! ;-). ( P.S: If some problems with function, maybe playing with timeout (-t .01) parameter could help )

comment “No hack no fee” pen-testing agreements
... Or maybe about an amount... For that kind of challenge, the amount of money have to be very attractive! Anyway, this has nothing to do with IT security... I agree with @RoryAlsop!
