OK.. something technical first.
for execv redirection in kernel backdoors.. sometimes they perform a checksum
on the original image so that when a hacker does mv/rm, and runs the binary,
it doesnt execute anyway :)
well.. obviously patching a binary in trivial ways that have zero effect on
behaviour is possible (you can use /bin/vi).
of course.. run it in gdb also. better yet, attach to it once its up and
running (so a backdoor cant just look at the trace flag, and then run
the original binary).
some more silly questions..
did the .us see much media coverage on the military coup a few years ago
it was a little nutty i'll say.. but there really wasn't involvement by other
countries for this, though it was headline news in .au for a while.
and last i heard, the .us was one of those anti military coup nations (well..
maybe as some sort of ideological statement).
this is going to be the most dumbest question i'll almost ever ask I guess
why isnt china on the list of terrorist harboring nations, or part of the axz of evil?
i tried to do a websearch for it, but i couldnt get past the chinese routers blocking traffic.
erm.. also.. like south africa. were they a terrorist nation 15 years ago?
no civilian has ever died in china afaik, and the government is very much pro capitalism and democracy... that which the vietnam war apparently had its premise based on (i think that nipped it in the bud, before communism spread).
its ok though.. those afghani women have been liberated triumphantly!
disclaimer.. i am very meek in my political knowledge, but obviously am interested in such discussion.
