Gaining full access to a server

I have to stop doing this before I get caught and get sent to jail and get kicked out of MAS and get my future all screwed up. But it’s entertaining to be able to break into someone else’s server and get away with it.

Actually I didn’t get away with it. I sent an email to the webmaster to let him know that there’s something that needed to be fixed. And it feels great knowing that you got to it first and not the other “133t” hackers.

Nah, I didn’t steal the passwd or shadow files.

A bit of technical information for those who are interested. The website accidentally allowed normal users to upload malicious files (in this case a php script) on to the server. Since my brother’s site was hacked using the same method, I decided to try it on this server. And it worked. I gained FULL access to the server and I could have deleted everything from there.

But I didn’t. I just sent the email and that was probably the best thing that I have ever done that day. I bet defacing it won’t make me feel half as good =)

Moral of the story: Help others, and you’ll find happiness within. Download this amazing script that I used: (rename to php). Continue reading


Okay, not exactly very fun since the “induction” sessions are very boring. Going through the company rules, what to expect on the course (75% pratical!!), what we should not do, and basically how to survive in MAS.

As you know, the MAS motto now is “going beyond expectations”. Ever heard of the porn movie entitled “kehidupan seorang pramugari yang terlampau”? That’s what we mean by going beyond expectations haha this is just a joke. Don’t kick me out ok?

Do you know how much a foreign traffic controller earn? RM200K. Every month.

So we got a car! And he’s my housemate again. And he’s probably reading this now because I just told him my blog address. Well, you won’t believe what car it is even if I tell you. It’s a KE-70. Still don’t get it? It’s a drift car!

Driving with one hand during a heavy downpour. haha just kidding la, the other hand busy doing something else.

We went and got the keys to our new apartment. The guy will go and get a few things fixed tomorrow and we’ll head over and do some cleaning up once we finish our classes at around 5. The new apartment looks great. Can’t wait to move in.

Okay, we’re not going to be burning a lot of tyres with this engine. At least we have a car.

One thing I hate about KL is the jam. Me and 2 other friends took the free bus service from the Kelana Jaya LRT to 1 Utama and the 15 minutes trip took 1 HOUR AND 45 FREAKING MINUTES!

This is nothing compared to what you really see when you’re there in person.

Well, it’s in focus right? Continue reading
