I figured I'd do a little blog posting about finding and exploiting XSS vulnerabilities in BBCode implementations. Not many sources exist for this type of information, and certainly none exist that I am aware of that are as comprehensive.

Minihawk... Just For Fun

Me Sporting a Minihawk

Since I've kind of broken out on my own as far as working, and I'm no longer required to go into an office, I figured I'd have some fun with my hair before it finally all falls out. I figured, what the hell - a miniature mohawk. Why not?

How Many Characters?

Search term must be a minimum of characters and a maximum of characters.

So, how many characters should I use?

Life Changing, Site Moving

As some of you may already know, I quit my job this week seeking greener pastures. My site is now on a brand new host, powered by HostGator.

So what does this mean? Well, my clients will be happy to know I will have all the time in the world for them now. I don't have to get up every morning and drag myself into an office. I don't have to answer phone calls from people that don't know the difference between a hard drive and a hacksaw. I'm my own boss, and can pretty well do as I wish.

Of course, not having a steady paycheck to rely on is going to be a tough change, but then again if you know me well enough you'll know my paychecks weren't that steady to begin with.

Recently, I was asked a couple of questions about Joomla security by a member of the Joomla Chicago CMS Group concerning XSS vulnerabilities. The Q&A hasn't been posted yet, but there's a bit of a preview on the Joomla Chicago CMS Group website.

Violating the Law as Company Policy

This is one of those cases of a sign saying something different than intended.

STOP! It is a VIOLATION of the LAW and COMPANY POLICY to enter a Pharmacy without a licensed Pharmacist present.

Thanks, Fairmont Wal-Mart Pharmacy!

Paris Hilton, Dennis Rodman in Fairmont

I hate to blog about this, but seeing as how it's so close to home I figured I may as well. My Grandmother owns a piece of land here in Fairmont that hosts a go-kart track. Apparently, Paris Hilton and Dennis Rodman are taking part in a new reality show, and they must make stops at checkpoints across the country. My Grandmother's go-kart track is one of those checkpoints, and Paris Hilton and Dennis Rodman will be in Fairmont West Virginia tomorrow, Sunday 12 July 2009 across the street from my parents' house.

UPDATE: Seems the promoters either fibbed a bit, or these two 'skipped' this checkpoint...

This Doesn't Sound Fun

Something tells me I don't want to go to this party.

Activities: Corn Hole

UPDATE: A couple friends of mine have actually heard of this - it's a game where you throw bean bags into a hole. But as Joey puts it: "does sound kinda suggestive actually". For everything you would ever want to know about Corn Hole, check out the Wikipedia entry.

Milw0rm, You Will Be Missed

Today it was announced quietly that milw0rm is closing its doors to submissions. The header of the site was changed from the Milw0rm logo to a brief message from str0ke:

Well, this is my goodbye header for milw0rm. I wish I had the time I did in the past to post exploits, I just don't :(. For the past 3 months I have actually done a pretty crappy job of getting peoples work out fast enough to be proud of, 0 to 72 hours (taking off weekends) isn't fair to the authors on this site. I appreciate and thank everyone for their support in the past.
Be safe, /str0ke
