If you cured your Sage SmartProbe of its congenital disease as per the last article on the subject, you may now be wondering what to do with it.
The vendor supplied a massive Java shitware with the thing, which does not merit any discussion whatsoever. Instead, we will use the probe’s very spiffy GDB-compatible interface. Configure [...]
The thought began, as many good things begin, in #trilema.
Users of the WOT, of V, and other systems where your cryptographic identity is wholly in your own hands1 live with a certain risk of “cryptographic death” – i.e. the compromise of one’s signing key. A conscientious user of public key crypto might keep the thought [...]
Phuctored SSH Public Keys to date.
Keys were obtained from a scan of the complete IPv4 space. We have gone approximately 20% of the way through the data set at the time of this writing.

The WWW of Brian Krebs, perhaps the second-most-worshiped1 patron saint to all English-speaking “computer security” charlatans — is sitting sadly offline today on account of a ~TB/sec DDOS flood.2
His titanic bandwidth, it turns out, was provided gratis by Akamai – spamatronicists par excellence and industrial-scale enablers of everything that makes the modern-day WWW a rancid [...]
Phuctor – rewritten and revved up on new hardware in April – is presently eating SSH RSA keys from a scan of the complete IPv4 space.
And, on occasion, breaking some.
And generating other laughs as well. In today’s server logs:

What you see here is a very classic version of the GNU MPI (bignum) library.
It has been surgically removed from GnuPG 1.4.10, specifically as found at:
CHANGES FROM ORIGINAL:
1) Everything pertaining to Automake was nuked, and the earth where it stood -
Instead, we [...]
(8/16 Update: 113 moduli.)
Phuctor has been under lightweight but rather reliable DDOS in recent times, so here is a mirror of the list of 106 moduli broken up through the time of this writing.
Certain professional idiots have been bashing their heads against the wall in a futile effort to magic away the past. To them, [...]
(5/20 Update: This.)
(5/18 Update: Tired of the contemptible media disinformation and faux-reporting on this subject? For some fresh air, see Mircea’s article, ‘On how the factored 4096 RSA keys story was handled, and what it means to you.’)
Phuctor, “The RSA Supercollider,” is a long-term collaborative project of yours truly and Mircea Popescu.
I am pleased to announce [...]
After the sale of my Urbit ‘dukedom’, several readers have written to me, asking ‘why.’ The following was my reply to one such letter, from a fellow who suggested implementing a proper hardware foundation for Nock (Urbit’s computational base.)
Here was my own Nock.
But notice that I made no attempt to implement a Nock [...]
