Now I'm able to see that my ISP actually...

PHP - misleading thoughts

Posted 03-07-2010 at 10:29 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I've recently used to hear from many guys that PHP is bad and useless language. Well, generally the source of that point of thinking is a bad code written by newbies(or mature noobs).
Yes, I admit PHP has some basic functions missing, some features need to be improved, etc. It's far from ideal language. But it is very easy to learn. The problem here is many beginners starting from PHP without reading documentation properly, without looking for security in their apps, and, as a result we have...

A short story about Infernet Exploiter usage in popular P2P app "Shareaza".

Help prevent kernel and software cracking: reminder

Posted 01-13-2010 at 07:01 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Probably, if you were linked here, you had troubles when someone gained root at your system.

The problem I'm writing this post about is kernel/software cracking.
