Re: Roommate stole christmas present!

If all roommates are connecting using equipment you own via wifi, you're probably in the clear to do this. Still, it's stupid. If one of your roommates stole it, that sucks, but it's not worth punishing your other roommates over. If it was truly stolen, you've now learned that you can't trust your p...

Re: How to notify someone of a vulnerability.

If you find a security vulnerability in a system without having been asked to, you're generally opening yourself up to liability. You never know when you're going to hurt someone's fragile ego by finding an issue in their code. If you want to be a white hat, get hired to a security consultancy or th...

Re: Modifying or Replacing an incoming packet?

Your post is not very clear. You give a description of what you *think* you want to be done; not what you hope the end result will be. What exactly is it you intend to accomplish?

Re: C++ Sockets Tutorial?

Also, Beej's Guide to Network Programming is very informative and thorough. ^this is what I used to learn sockets back when and I have to say it's one of the most approachable, well written, and technically adequate tutorials I've ever read on the topic, at least for the subject matter it covers.

Re: Seriously not good, put whatever we want on the homepage...

No, that's some arbitrary thing you think did it, which goes to prove that you don't need to know what you're doing to find security holes. Kudos to whoever wrote this feature and didn't think to check what kind of data was being returned :/
