Question from a reader: computer and tools

LK asked: what computer do you use and what tools do you have in it?


Well, this varies constantly, but my base is the following:

  • Macbook Pro 13"
  • Browsers open all the time with either info about the target, open source searches, scans, etc.
  • Slack for team comms.
  • Terminal for code, attack tools, etc.
  • GCC, Python and Ruby for tools / exploits writing.
  • Notational Velocity for notes.
  • Temporary folder on ~ for findings. Will get wiped once the project is finished.

I can add or remove things like VMWare with some different operating systems / tools, Pages for report writing at the end, Keynote for presentations, Sublime Text to write code (sometimes, mostly I use Vim on the terminal), and 1Password for password management.

Simple tools, simple setup. Mobile.
