L0pht in Transition

By Space Rogue 1 comment

The April 2007 print issue of CSO Magazine has a nice article on page 30 by Michael Fitzgerald entitled “L0pht In Transition.” Unfortunately they don’t have a version online or I would link to it. The article pretty much sums up what all of us are up to these days and asks the question if […]

More Cell Phone Security Myths

By Space Rogue No comments

I have been trying to beat people over the head about cell phone security issues for years. It amazing how much people trust those things. They look at it like a microwave or a refridgerator and not a small computer. They think it is a small inpenatrable box that only they have access to. But, […]

Stupid Surveys

By Space Rogue No comments

Ok, this is just to funny not to write about. As a previous Blackhat attendee (and speaker) my name is on the mailing list of whoever owns the conferance these days. Anyway, I get an email that was appropriately routed to my spam folder, asking me to complete a survey for some magazine called ‘Dark […]

WordPress is Installed

By Space Rogue No comments

I figured if I’m going to do this blogging thing I should get some real software instead of editing an HTML file by hand. Not that I mind writing raw HTML but this is so much easier and has all these cool nifty features like comments and stuff. So I’ve just installed this today, I’ve […]

Lopht.com Lives!

Lopht.com Lives! Unfortunately with an Oh and not a zero, but we will take what we can get. Amazing what a spammer will pay for a half decent domain, looks like I am back to Mac&Cheese again for a while. Or I suppose you could say it is amazing (or stupid) what someone will pay […]

Merry Christmas!

By Space Rogue No comments

Dildog threw his annual Christmas bash with all of the usual suspects and a few unusual ones. Tame by L0pht party standards but hey, we’re all gettin’ old. The Vegtable of Death actually stopped looking for dead people long enough to grace us with his presence. The Fish of Tweet was still 5K miles away […]

Amazing what you can find in your own website log files. Very surprising to see who is reading this site. Hi out there, I see you!

“I’d run over the phone…”

By Space Rogue No comments

So one of the few tech reporters who ‘gets it’, Ted Bridis, over at the AP decides he needs a quote for a story about how old cell phones may still have data on them from their original owners. So he finds Mudge, and what does he say? “I’d run over the phone…” Bwhahahaha!!!!. Well, […]

L0pht Buildings

By Space Rogue No comments

Not a lot of people know where the L0pht was physically. It started out in an old artists co-op building near South Boston and then moved to an old warehouse in Watertown. If you were lucky enough to attend one of the orginal legendary L0pht parties you would not recognise either building now. The South […]
