So I Deleted My Antivirus…

Having switched to Linux from Windows, I was accustomed to the idea of “needing” an antivirus program. Early on when I made the transition to Linux, the idea of not getting viruses seemed foreign. Therefore, up until recently, I was using ClamAV for one of those “just in case” scenarios. Thus far, every time I […]

Featured Site: hacking.allowed

In addition to the requisite Christmas post, there’s a site I came across recently that I’ve been wanting to feature, particularly since I keep finding articles that categorize the “dark web” as this evil place full of horrible people.

I had clicked on the Atlayo Search Engine, and to my surprise, it had been hacked: If you go by what the picture says, the person (or people) responsible were 7ulzSec – well, I guess that’s pretty obvious, huh? I […]
