Runs Linux

The Sequestered TV Show, Runs Linux

I don’t know if this one has been mentioned before but in Episode 11 of Sequestered in minute 3 there is a second of root nmap of a windoze 2003 device from a shell.

However it seems to be on a doze laptop and the 3 monitor display a couple seconds later also seems like doze.

Supposedly the scene is showing a remote shell being opened for the attacker by the wife.


Hi all, I’ve been following the show since last year, kudos to Chris and Matt. I just saw the TV series The Strain, and one of them is using Opensuse. I thought I just share it here :).

Desktop App Pick

Telegram Desktop

“Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s superfast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any of your phones, tablets or computers.”

“With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc) to people who are in your phone contacts and have Telegram. You can also create groups for up to 200 people or send broadcasts to up to 100 contacts. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs,”
