I'm a Hardcore Computer Addict
Hello everyone! This is the first time I've been on this site. I must say i'm pretty impressed. You will probably see me in here more often. The subject line kind of raps it up in a nutshell about me. I spend way to much time on the computer... well thats what my wife says. I say its not enuff. Here is a little about me. I'll start with my certifications.
And coming soon:
I have a double associates degree in Computer Science and Networking
My interests are security, computer, networking, and figuring out how to build someone elses product that cost $$$ for basically penny's (reverse engineering). I have been in the computer field for 10+ years. I started off repairing and building computers. Then moved to Networking and then on to security.
My job is really still my hobby even though it makes me money. I have turned half of my basement into a security testing lab. I like to catch 0-day viruses and hackers and - analyze what they are doing. Here's a few of the tools I use.
several IDS's - Snort and Cisco
Hardware Probes and various software sniffers
several decompiling tools
blah blah blah
really there's to much to mention. Many of you will get to know what i use, the more i chat with ya. Anyways, I'm sure i've bored ya to death. See ya in the chat rooms.
