filedriller - BETA 5

filedriller v1.0-BETA-5 was released. filedriller walks a directory tree and identifies all regular files by type with siegfried. Furthermore it creates UUIDv4s, calculates hash sums and entropies. filedriller can also check if the file is in the NSRL. The NSRL check expects a Redis server that serves NSRL SHA-1 hashes. You can use my docker image, i.e. docker pull ampoffcom/nslredis As I use more and more Codeberg instead of Github, you can find the source code on Codeberg.

The NSRL For Hackers

A short article I wrote for 2600 - The Hacker Quarterly. It is about the National Software Reference Library and what they and you can do with it. 2600 is going through tough times right now and I would appreciate it very much if you would buy the magazine, https://store.2600.com/collections/pdf-downloads The NSRL For Hackers First published in 2600, 37:3 The National Software Reference Library (NSRL) is something you probably never heard of, although it is one of the largest software collections in the world.

pacaudit discontinued

Pacaudit had a bug that could cause wrong results to be displayed. Since the tool was intended to serve security and I have no time to fix it, I discontinued it and deleted the AUR. The Github repo is archived. Please use arch-audit from the comunity repo.

Sao Tome - Cemetery Of Lost Images

Roaming around the web and Google maps in the Covid-19-lockdown I noticed there is a special place west of Sao Tome. There are a lot of pictures in the Gulf of Guniea, in the triangle of Sao Tome, St. Helena and Ascension. These pictures don’t belong there. I found no other place in Google maps where are images wrongly placed by geo tags in this quantity. Use street view on the following location link:

pacaudit - v.1.1.2

pacaudit v1.1.2 was released, install it via trizen or any other AUR pkg manager and read the man page. trizen -S pacaudit man pacaudit pacaudit has a alpm-hook (since v1.1.1), so you will get a warning if you try to install a vulnerable package. v1.1.2 checks if security.archlinux.org is up and running. If not a message is shown and pacaudit returns without checking local packages. Comments on AUR, github or via email are highly appreciated!
