[UPDATED MAY 5 2021: Major Changes, Update of Tesla 0day. lol]

The brief story of why I was forced off of Twitter’s platform on March 4th 2021, more than 10 years after I opened my account, and why Twitter is a slowly dying platform that bullies anyone who doesn’t produce advertiser friendly content.


Twitter locked my account because of two remarkably, un-fuckin-beliably dumb Tweets. One was written a while ago, and the other fairly recent. No, the tweets aren’t NICE. In fact, some of…

I’m making this guide for one reason, and one reason alone: I want to help people, mainly younger hackers, figure out how to get legitimate day jobs. If this post ends up only helping one person get their career started, it’ll be worth it.

I’m not trying to convert blackhats to whitehats. I barely even subscribe to the classification of “blackhat…

The Only Thing You Cant Fix Is Killing Yourself.

It’s been almost two years since I laid in my bed, pointed a loaded gun at my head, and lightly pulled at the trigger. It obviously didn’t go off. I didn’t pull hard enough on the trigger to cause it to fire, and I’m lucky that night didn’t end me. I didn’t leave a note, post anything online, or call anyone. My brain had…

See, if you pay them, you’re not a spammer anymore! It’s like magic! Except It’s Crime!

HEY! Is the paywall blocking you? Click here my dude! Enjoy for free! We dont play that bullshit here! ;)

It’s been a minute since we’ve all re-visited the (very) unfinished business of When “Good” Blacklists Break Bad. The last time we covered SPAMHAUS, and it went juuuuuuuuuuust fine! Just kidding! YeahhhhNO, That was the time Bran Krepbsh tried to get me fired and came after @gexcolo from OvO Networks (or maybe you know it as cock.li). Anyhoo… today we’re covering UCEPROTECT. And nope, I’m not gonna link to the site. …



I entered this social experiment with absolutely no planning, expectations, or clearly defined goal. I randomly got the idea in my head to try and “be a Trump supporter for a day” to understand their point of view and how we are… well, where we are. I am a notoriously careless person, have extreme ADD, and I’m shocked I’ve made it this far in my project, let alone life.

What I’m doing right now is staging a bunch of reasons for me to point at when you all hate this Medium blargh post.

Hi Everyone,

I’ve always taken the approach of being fully transparent, at least as much as possible, on almost everything. One thing I want to mention is that my account is now technically listed as “monetized” — though I’ve chosen which stories are and are not monetized carefully. I’ve also made a decision to list a “Paywall-Free” link at the top of ALMOST EVERY article, so that you are in full control of whether or not to read these articles for free.

Example of the text added to all stories. Link bypasses all Medium.com restrictions.

Why? I’m honestly just curious about Medium’s…

localhoax: A review of a realistic looking PoC and piping things to bash. UPDATED 20:20 PST // JUNE 9 2019

TL;DR — Never Pipe Files From Curl/Wget/Etc To Shells, Especially Exploits.

Here’s a quick story about a goofy joke“PoC exploit” that I created on May 31 2019. The “PoC” was quickly thrown together in response to the news that Alisa Esage Шевченко, a ZDI member (Zero Day Initiative) was about to disclose regarding an NGINX RCE condition. Since NGINX runs a lot of the world’s web servers, this was…

Hi, I’m @notdan. This may come as a shock to you, but don’t let the “not” completely fool you, because recently I was outed as actually being a guy named Dan. This is a brief story of research, spoofy packets, blacklists and repercussions. If I don’t cover a specific topic or area, it’s because I cannot do so. Those of you that know me well, know I tend to overshare when I can. …
