Introducing the Scriptery category, despite my web browser telling me that it is misspelt. This category is for scripts and commands that I have used as part of my work, blog posts, or just for fun.
I decided to stop including large slabs of commands/scripts and associated explanations in my blog posts, and to create a dedicated category for them. That way they can be referenced as independent entities, and will hopefully help me reduce the size of some of my posts.
I have included scripts/commands that I have found useful for malware analysis and/or system administration, that have impressed the socks off me, or that I just found nice to look at.
Disclaimer (aka careful now)
While they are generally scripts/commands that I have written and used myself, I don’t guarantee that they won’t harm your system/love life/pet goldfish, or anything else for that matter. Use them at your own risk. Especially when some of them may need modifying to suit your situation/environment/data/operating system.
Before running them, I generally ask myself ‘can the data I’m about to run this on be regenerated if it gets trashed?’, and then take action accordingly. For instance, copy the data to a subdirectory, change directory, or drop any elevated privileges if I happen to have any. Especially if the script/commands include the rm command.
If you have any of your own that you would like to share (with due credit of course), please feel free to comment.
