Did a web app pentest.

Was debriefing a client when the developer responded, “After your attack the server came back online automatically. It was only down for 1 hour..”

“Only” and “One Hour”... Do. Not. Belong.... in the same sentence as each other when we’re discussing downtime after a Denial of Service attack resulting from a Form Flood produced by a malnourished Virtual Machine on a single laptop!!!!!!

Parrot Project - Parrot Security OS
Most security folks know about Kali Linux, but there are quite a few alternative security-focused Linux distributions out there.

Parrot is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian and focused on Penetration Testing, Digital Forensics, Programming and Privacy protection.

You can download different spins (including an ARM version that can run on the RPi) and try it out for yourself.

This startup designed, developed and built a 35kw/h electric car covered in shatter-proof solar panels that can extend the car's range up to 30km*. The best part? The car costs only 16.000€ + battery rental (20.000€ if you want to buy the battery as well).
