First time hashing with Nusantara Hash

Category: Fun — kamaruddin @ 3:03 pm

It was 24th February 2008 round 12:00. Called by my brother-in-law asking whether we could join the run. It’s a special run since the House was celebrating its 700th run since founded in 1994.

Started leaving from Medan at 2.00 and arrive on site round 2.40. There were lots of people (~200) preparing and eating snacks (since it’s FREE food anyone!). Anyway, it was my first run and I’m amused with all the stuff offered. Free flow cold beer (YESSS!) and lemonade, variety chinese snacks, fries, miesop and barbecues. Is it a party or hash event? Who cares? Are we not entertained? (huahuaaa)

Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

Category: Indonesian,Security,Web — kamaruddin @ 1:35 pm

Contoh kelemahan CSRF di Google Screenshot: “PoC (Proof of Concept) kelemahan CSRF di Gmail awal 2007. Dengan multi-tab browsing Gmail dan situs “berbahaya” (yang mendemonstasikan PoC ini) daftar kontak e-mail saya terlihat semuanya di situs tersebut.”

Jangan remehkan serangan CSRF! Serangan ini lebih berbahaya dari XSS dan sulit untuk membuktikan siapa yang bermasalah, pengguna atau situs web.

CSRF (baca: sea surf) adalah serangan/exploitasi terhadap situs web dengan memanfaatkan pengguna yang sudah terautentikasi. CSRF mengexploitasi tingkat kepercayaan situs web terhadap pengguna dan menganggap setiap perintah adalah sah untuk dijalankan. Karena sifat inilah sangat sulit untuk menentukan sebuah aksi adalah murni dari pengguna atau karena kelemahan CSRF di situs.

Best Movie Quotes

Category: Fun — kamaruddin @ 12:15 pm

These are my best movie quotes as far as I could remember. If you’re asking me how am I supposed to remember these, well, they simply popped-up. Just pay attention on that catchy dialog/phrase that you still can remember till the end of the show. And that my friend is your best quote.

#1: “Moma says life is like a box of chocolate. You don’t know what you’re gonna get”
– Forrest Gump, Forest Gump

Petunjuk Pemula Membasmi Malware

Category: Indonesian,Security — kamaruddin @ 1:14 pm

Autoruns from Sysinternals (later acquired by Microsoft)Komputer anda melambat dan saat menjalankan aplikasi tertentu tiba-tiba komputer reboot sendiri, muncul pesan di bawah layar bahwa komputer “sudah tertular” dan disarankan ke internet untuk download. Anda tahu ada yang aneh terjadi! Ketika dibawa ke tempat reparasi komputer atau teman, anda disarankan membackup file penting dan format ulang karena komputer terinfeksi berat. Tidak adakah jalan keluar selain “menuklir” informasi di harddisk hingga kosong?

Malware adalah software berbahaya yang merugikan di mana yang termasuk di dalamnya adalah kategori virus/trojan/worm/dialer/hijackers dan sejenisnya. Tujuan mereka jelas untuk merusak, mangganggu atau memperlambat kinerja dan produktivitas dalam berkomputer.
