Pinned toot

Ever since I was 7 years old, I've been interested in computers, the Internet, and more recently, cybersecurity and social engineering.

I strive to become an excellent cybersecurity engineer. I'm always eager to learn and love meeting new people with similar interests. Feel free to drop me a DM!

Friendly reminder: is a great project to contribute your otherwise idle computing power.

You can set complex scheduling options, either by time of day, battery level, non-BOINC CPU usage, mouse and keyboard activity and so on. This way, it won't take up all your resources when you're compiling or playing videogames.

You can also configure it to only take a percentage of the CPU, a specific core count, or only allow it to run in bursts.

Dia duit Baile 脕tha Cliath!
Hello Dublin!

Did you know the official name for Dublin in irish means "Town of the hurdled ford"?

Does your city have such a beautiful official name? I don't think so! 鉂わ笍馃嚠馃嚜

Important - cPanel is having issues with MariaDB 10.3.26. Do NOT upgrade MariaDB or your sites will go down. We are currently looking into this.

I tried Rust, but in my opinion, Rust makes it too difficult to write software as it enforces safety above everything else, and it adds cognitive overhead to the task of software engineering.

Writing Go I found myself to enjoy the process of software development. I thought I didn't like software engineering because I was so used to C, Java, Python and Ruby, but Go is just fantastic.

After a while trying Go out, I must say I'm very impressed with the language overall.

It retains many things from C syntax, while supercharging it to make it ridiculously easy to write high-level code that's also efficient. But you can dig deep if you want and go a little lower-level. Docs are well written and maintained. Unlike Ruby or Python, the syntax is never ambiguous.

What I dislike the most is how strict the Go linter is. I really dislike K&R braces.

What are your thoughts on Go?

I am thrilled to announce I have accepted the employment offer from cPanel, and I will be joining their talented team next Tuesday!

After more than 2 months looking for different openings in multiple companies, I have finally decided to settle on cPanel as I am convinced I will be a valuable part of the team, and I'll be able to learn and grow with my team.

I just got a much needed haircut. Turns out I wasn't going blind!

If you know something would make someone's day, and you know it's true, why not say it?

If you like the country someone comes from, or if you like what someone cooked, just say it.

We always like hearing sincere compliments, so why not take the first step? 馃憤

Does anyone know of an European IT company hiring English speakers? I am willing to learn the local language, but I will probably not have full proficiency on day one.

I'm thinking Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Finland, although I can also consider Canada, New Zealand, Australia and other countries outside of Europe.

Please, contact me or let me know where I can apply!

I'm now on FreeNode with the nick L1Cafe. Recommend me techy channels to join! :D

fediadmin, security, long 

Did not clear my access log for some time, amassing over 300MBs.

What I looked at

Common attack patterns (SQLi, BOF, path traversal etc.)
Common attack URLs (e.g.
Bad and unusual HTTP status codes
POST requests against unusual places (no inbox, push)


One IP tries to actively enumerate Fedi accounts: 75.64.236[.]168
241 IPs tried to blindly exploit non-fedi-specific services, e.g. SQL injects, posting shells
53 IPs did enumeration only, looking exploitable services and shells
Most popular was checking for Wordpress, phpMyAdmin and looking for existing shells
The crawler from fediverse[.]space seems okay, but if you want to block: 64.227.114[.]249
