Blake and cisc0ninja to Present at Defcon 22

Blake and cisc0ninja have been selected to present a talk, "Don't DDoS Me Bro: Practical DDoS Defense", at Defcon 22. This will be Blake's fourth time presenting at Defcon and cisc0ninja's first. This talk will cover various strategies for defending your network against layer 7 (mostly web) DDoS attacks. If you're going to Defcon and like SX, make sure to make it. The two of them have agreed to use a number of humorous attack logs (such as the DESU attack) from This will actually be the first defensive talk to come out of SX. Source code for SX's RoboAmp will also be publicly released. The announcement hasn't made it's way to the Defcon 22 Speaker page yet, but should soon.

Funny enough, we saw our largest DDoS in months today - which lead to us temporarily blocking TOR (as well as some other networks). Not sure if the two are related, but it's interesting to think about.

Administering FreeBSD ASLR Through Firewall Rules

Late last night, I finished up a nifty new feature for our ASLR implementation on FreeBSD. This feature allows you to administer on a per-user, per-group, per-jail, and per-binary basis how ASLR is applied. I don't know of any other ASLR implementation that provides this sort of flexibility. This post will show you how to use FreeBSD's filesystem firewall in conjunction with ASLR.

Happy April Fools Day!

Hey. Just wishing everybody a happy April Fools day and to say that RaT is obviously not in any trouble.

RaT Arrested, held without bail!

Today we are a house divided. Less than a few hours ago, RaT was arrested by federal agents in a surprise raid and is currently being held indefinitely. I don't have all of the information on what has taken place as the feds have kept as quiet as possible. However, what I can confirm is a reflection of this.

What is apparent is that the charges are nothing short of ghastly. The most egregious of them include numerous acts of human trafficking, and several acts of pimping. Furthermore, it is apparent that evidence had been collected over the course of the past six months. The most troubling development is that there is considerable evidence that points to Cisc0ninja's sister being an informant as she was one of the few people outside of a very small group who met RaT in person. I will keep everybody informed on this horrible situation as it develops.

Should We Change Our Slogan?

We've opened up a poll to see if our community thinks that we should change our slogan. We've been using "Nobody Can Stop Information Insemination" since the 90s and it's possible that it's time to change. We'd appreciate if all users of our site would take some time to vote over at
