Sprites is someone that I feel truly epitomises the original hacking spirit. His ability to understand the inner-workings of a large variety of things, strip them down to their bare elements and combine them in different ways to make something new is nothing short of impressive.
What is interesting to me and why I posted it is that his intuition about how things might work tends to correlate highly with how they actually work even if at that point in time during the narrative I'd have absolutely no clue about what he comes up with. That's a very deep level of insight.
>"BadBios, BadUSB, Stuxnet, Flame, Duqu, Shamoon, are all different names given to the observations by experts of the same suite of malware that has evolved over the years."
That is the hypothesis my research into this subject also supports, although it is purely an intuitive hypothesis, not an empirical one, that is, at this point in time, I do not have concrete proof to back this intuition...
But tr1ck5t3r's comment is a very interesting comment, nonetheless...
Laser projector made by hacksawing 2 hard disks in half, sticking chopped up bits of platter (as mirrors) to the head assembly and bolting in a laser pointer. Works well enough to draw a digital clock display on the wall.
I saw your talk at OHM, we were the guys that showed up with a crate of beer there. It was one of the best talks on the whole party, and i mentioned it to a ton of people in retrospect of the party. Keep up your amazing work, this deserves to be upvoted. Are you Dutch? Let me know if you are ever around amsterdam.
