I’m currently a systems admin / consultant at a IT firm who looks after the computer systems of small businesses in the UK. IT security is only a part of that job. However I’ve always enjoyed breaking into, getting around, subverting and otherwise hacking things, systems and ideas. In tackling some low-level IT security tasks I reignited my interest in the field and this blog charts my progress in the world of Computer Security, legal Hacking, Penetration Testing, Infosec – whatever you want to call it. As a Windows guy I’m learning about Linux, shell-scripting, python and all the other skills needed in this field.
