Good times and awesome company. Rock climbing with my 9yo at Brooyar.

I wish this thing would take off. Twitter makes me angry.

After 4 years it was time to retire my old avatar for something more recent and up with the times. This is me at a bouldering comp!

Full details at if you need more information.

Please note that this doesn't in any way change my existing public streaming schedule. That will continue as always.

So I thought I'd update my live stream Patron tiers to include a couple of other things. Some tiers will get access to prerecorded streams that aren't going to be available to the general public, and other tiers will have access to live streams specific to those Patrons.
The intent here is not to hide content from people, but instead provide a more personalised streaming service to people who are supporting me. I think this is a nice way to say "thank you" for the support. Thoughts are welcome!

This is an epic live-action shot of me in 2003 working on my game engine in VC++ 6.0!

Check out that hardware, yo!

And as a result of this "meh" response I seem to have, I feel like I am coming across as a jerk. This makes me sad. But I can't honestly get excited by it.

I find myself constantly underwhelmed by certain advances in offensive security approaches when other people find them exciting. But I've realised that it's due to the fact that offsec tools are taking advantage of things that developers have been doing for decades. So what's old is new again.

The most recent case of this is runtime resolution of missing dependencies via exception handling and loading from internal resources in .NET.

Nothing special at all. Old news. But new to security.

Live streaming tonight! Following through on a recent promise to go through a crackme/reverseme (or two). This is going back to my roots a bit, should be fun.

I'll be streaming to all three services as usual. 20:00 AEST (1hr from now).

If you want to play along, get yourselves a Windows VM with some debugging tools.

Bring your brain, your dad, and your entire company!

See you in an hour!

The worst part about accidentally biting your lip is that it becomes almost impossible to stop biting your lip in the exact same spot.

After nearly 20 years of working in IT-related roles, across development and security, one thing sticks out like the proverbial "dogs balls" yet so few companies see it.

If you treat your people well, your business will do well. It's so simple. Companies that look after their people retain those people, and those people work hard to make the business succeed.

So, stop treating your people like resources and treat them like humans, for fuck sake! <~ did this at the end of my 3 hour session. didn't quite latch the last move, but still managed to do oK :) should have recorded one of the first three attempts instead of the fourth!

I think I'm going to rebrand to "Thumb-in-Butt Security". It actually reflects how productive offensive security people are when on site with a client that needs assessments done ASAP but are never actually ready to do anything.
