First used an Atari when I was 4 years old. At age 7 I learned to program in turtle Logo on a Commodore 64. When I was 11 I learned BASIC on the Apple II family. At 12 I carried that over to the IBM PC. At 18 I was trained to do Radio Repair in the Army, and at 20 I worked for AOL.

17 years later I have taught A+, Network+, held a JNCIA in routing, a JNCIS in Security, and currently hold Security+, CEH, CISSP, CCNA, CCNA Sec, and CCNP Sec certifications.

I'm also an avid amateur radio operator (WN7ANT). 73

comment Is it possible to Identify a VPN user by finding relations in traffic?
Pay cash for a reloadable credit card. Set the address to a legitimate one anywhere in your country. Don't use the credit card to order goods shipped to your house. Don't give your real name. Just a thought?

comment How can this xss challenge be solved?
I don't see where the solutions were asked for. I see where it is stated there are 5 solutions, and I see a request for assistance. Maybe someone pointing or "nudging" in the right direction would be possible?

That's if they have a PCI certification to begin with ;)

@AviD - Not trying to be a pain, but is there any chance you could connect me with the proof of captcha being broken? I heard of theoretical possibilities, but didn't know there was a proof yet. Not calling you out, just the people I work with expect references.

comment Teaching a loved one about secure coding practices
You can always start with awareness. I think it would look something like this: Okay, we've finished "Hello World." Can anyone think of a way to make this program do something it wasn't designed to do?" The likely answer will be no, and that's okay at this level. But at least ask the question. Bring forward that it is a consideration. Start the dialogue. Waiting until year three to say, "okay, you've learned all these coding techniques, now we're going to show you how vulnerable your crutches are," is bad form... isn't it?
