I must not fear.— Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear from Frank Herbert’s Dune
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Exploit Exercises is magnificent: nice pre-packed virtual machines with a set of known vulnerabilities to learn various classes of security problem from. Fuzzing you own machines is never any fun, because the likelyhood of finding anything good is infinitesimal, and … Continue reading
This came out of a discussion on plus about an article I shared, but Plus isn’t really a suitable venue for the long-form response. The basic premise of the article, like so many similar articles, is that we need to … Continue reading
The previous post ended with “I have no idea why the nodes won’t boot.” Now we know. The problem is that, in terms of the mkchroot-rh script that Warewulf3 comes with, Fedora 16 is not a Redhat derivative. This makes … Continue reading
