@MechMK1 Power went out and only just came back on. Generator is broken.
I lost my PGP key. :(
@MechMK1 Well, FLAC is objectively better than MP3, but that's because MP3 sucks even as a lossy codec, not because lossy is inherently inferior to lossless. A better comparison would be Vorbus, Opus, or AAC vs FLAC (in which case they'd be virtually identical). MP3 is especially bad at compressing higher notes. I just had to say this because I hate MP3.

@CarlKevinson "An attacker would have to know" is not in accordance with Kerkhoff's Principle. A system must be secure even under the assumption that the attacker knows everything about it. — MechMK1 Dec 4 at 17:10
@MechMK1 Strictly speaking, it's Shannon's Maxim, not Kerkhoff's Principle, which applies here. The latter is specifically about the algorithms used in cryptosystems, not security systems in general.

Q: What to do after getting a reverse shell?

BatSo imagine that I have acquired a reverse shell and have a terminal with full root access. I know I can do anything, but what should I do? What's the next step? EDIT: My current goal is to persist my current connection and then add more backdoors if this one was found. At last, it would be nice ...

groans
> At last, it would be nice if I could plant some exploits that would eventually drive the user crazy.
Real professionalism here amirite

@J.J I know that feeling. :/
@VipulNair Yeah he doesn't seem to have the mindset of either white or blackhats.
 
J.J
10:16 PM
@forest Yeah... It's so gross.
I spent way too much.
 
On what?
 
J.J
Gifts.
Alcohol.
Some other things I can't type without getting banned LUL
 
Why?
lel
 
J.J

TAKE ME TO YOUR HEARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRT
Sorry, I love this song.
Uhm

J.J
10:18 PM
If you can figure it out then you can have a cookie :p
 
You're a Brit you don't have 5th Amendment rights! :p
 
J.J
We do have the "no comment" though.
:D
I'll just say... Overpriced underwear LUL
 
Thought so. :P
 
J.J
HAhahahhahahahahahaha
 
@J.J Yeah but you can also be forced to give up your passwords.
 
J.J
10:19 PM
Yeah, it's so expensive man.
I felt sick in that store, well, let me rephrase.
It was really nice.
But it was very expensive.
 
Sounds like you bought a lot.
 
J.J
Quite a lot yeah.
I bought myself some shit as well.
Nothing too crazy, SSD, headphones, that's it really.
 
Blackhat money can come in handy when you want to go on a spending spree. ;)
 
J.J
A new pair of trainers since mine are falling in half and I was literally told like a child to buy new ones.
Or she was gonna burn them.
I imagine it does @forest
Back to the song.
I am convinced that anyone who doesn't like this song isn't human.
 
I don't even know that song.
But then again I'm a forest, not a human.
 
J.J
10:25 PM
You don't know Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue?
 
no
 
J.J
Man, I LOVE this song. I've loved it for as long as I can remember.
Wow.
It's so... Wholesome.
 
I live under a rock remember.
 
J.J
Hahahahhaha.
I mean, I don't know exactly how old you are but I would imagine this song was popular when you were a teenager.
'81 it was released.
 
>implying I'm not a homeless 10 year old girl with a laptop
 
J.J
10:27 PM
Hahahahahahhaha
 
yay I have 10k rep on Crypto.SE now.
I'll get to see deleted posts by crazy people! :D
 
J.J
Nice, lol.
I literally do not use this site anymore.
Got so bored of it. Got better shit to do than help people who need actual mental help.
 
heh
Still use chat though I see.
I still like this site. I'm learning a lot on Crypto.SE and still help people here from time to time.
 
J.J
Yeah, chat is good.
The main site is just... Pointless. (for me)
 
Main site like Security.SE or you mean Stack Overflow?
 
J.J
10:36 PM
Yeah I mean Security.SE.
I don't have the motivation or desire to answer questions anymore.
 
And it's not like you can ask complex questions here and get answers most of the time.
I find that it's only useful for asking rather basic questions, although every once in a while a domain expert comes along and is really helpful out of the blue.
 
J.J
Yeah, true really.
 
I find IRC is better for difficult questions.
At least if you find the right channel.
 
J.J
I don't use IRC.
I don't even know how I get answers to most my questions.
I probably don't check answers well enough when I find one.
But /shrug right.
Life goes on.
I'm watching a Jordan Peterson video on alcohol & partying lol
He makes a good point... Totally futile.
 
11:08 PM
Speaking of sometimes finding a domain expert to randomly answer your question...

A: Is this paper's technique for factoring RSA 2048 with noisy qubits realistic?

Craig GidneyI'm one of the authors of the paper. In order to make the paper more approachable, we factored each major optimizations out into its own paper. There are three of these sub-papers, and they each stand on their own mostly independent of the others. "Approximate encoded permutations and piecewis...

I got this a few months ago. Asked a question about a paper. The paper's author answered.
