Today I just want to rant about some lessons I've learned recently. For starters, on a philosophy level there will always be a sense of each student teaches the next generation. This has remained for a fair amount of time and today I see few people recognize this. Therefor I find it is my duty to inform anyone who bothers to listen. It's becoming more and more noticeable that people will get praised for doing truly minimal work, if they simply keep at it until they do it. While others get no praise trying to go and do more than whats needed. To me, hard work isn't busting your ass on a computer for 13 hours, it's redoing a metal root in the middle of summer for 13 hours. So I find that praise for minor accomplishments mean very very little to me, but apparently means something to others. I've witnessed other people with a real work ethic get into these situations too as of late. In the end, duty becomes more meaningful than work if work is just business. The lesson…
I would like to express a few minor words in the only format I know how. Plain text. If you're here for infosec stuff, I'll get to that towards the bottom. Philosophy before technology.
When talking with people recently, a feat I rarely perform anymore, I found myself questioning why they would consider me smart. I have no college degree, I am not a master in some form or fashion. I'm just another kid who studied the world around him. In retrospect, when you know more than the people around you, one topic or many, you appear wiser than you are. As for me, I see that the only way to live life is without the mindset to mimic or clone. People say the smarter many can use less words and in this I am vastly closer towards idiotic. But I have a problem with leaving things unexplained. In one example, I was asked to explain an issue. To most this seems like no problem, they just explain what they know. For me, I explain what I know and how I know it, ways…
When i saw this say cyber security ptsd, i though: wow did someone just recognize that cyber security is wartime activity? or wow, did someone acknowledge that people are often damaged by previous battles so they find it hard to overcome new battles? nope. Instead this is a high level overview of how people become burnouts if over or under worked. Lets play a game here, lets pretend you and i are on a 6 man criminal hacking group together. Neither of us are the leader, but we are both considered appropriate for our ideas. My idea is to make conversation in reference sets only and pgp(rsa4096) encrypt files or data shared. To protect our operarions.Your ideas relate to targets, objectives, etc.. We find someone poking in one of our servers. Fuck, is there anything that can dox us? we dont want them knowing we're in and monitoring so lets step back and find a backdoor. Shit. we had to break in almost the same way as him and escalate up. He's probably setup everything he could by n…
