Now that we love the geeky stuffs, lets see some examples of Christmas trees drawn using TeX. FYI, TikZ is build on top of PGF and allows you to create sophisticated graphics in a rather intuitive and easy manner. And, Tikz and PGF are TeX packages used to create graphics programmatically.

Evince Rocks! Foxit Sucks

Been using foxit PDF reader for a while in Windows 7 while I was working on some windows-based project and I was totally pissed off with foxit.

Not being a fan of Adobe's PDF reader, I decided to try foxit PDF reader since some of the online reviews were stating Foxit to be a great PDF reader. Basically, I was looking for a very simple, fast, and lightweight PDF reader that suits me. Foxit has everything a good PDF reader should have. It works pretty well with any PDF documents I need to read. It is supposedly lightweight, fast, secure, and it has millions of users. But, it was neither fast nor lightweight in its default configuration, in my experience.

But its still lacking some feature, that I do not know. I just can not feel the software. I am not satisfied with the level of user experience this software imparts. What do you guys have to say about this??

Then I decided to use the famous PDF reader from linux world, the Evince. And, what can I say?

Evince ROCKS!!!

If you have not tried evince for windows, download it from Gnome's Evince page and try right away on Windows. It should work on Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

GitHub Snippet Sharing Gist Gets Revamped

GitHub team has today announced the new Gist, their online snippet sharing tool. Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others offering syntax support for several languages, configuration file formats and document formats.

The great thing about Gist is that all gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository. Whether it's a simple snippet or a full app, Gist is a great way to get your point across.

The new Gist is re-written completely from scratch using better libraries and following appropriate style guide.

DNS Rebinding Attack Using Rebind

Rebind is a tool that implements the multiple A record DNS rebinding attack. Although this tool was originally written to target home routers, it can be used to target any public (non RFC1918) IP address.

Rebind provides an external attacker access to a target router's internal Web interface. This tool works on routers that implement the weak end system model in their IP stack, have specifically configured firewall rules, and who bind their Web service to the router's WAN interface. Note that remote administration does not need to be enabled for this attack to work. All that is required is that a user inside the target network surf to a Web site that is controlled, or has been compromised, by the attacker.

Kind of interesting vector and I guess many are vulnerable out there.
