    A 48mb pdf. Wow.

    Of course, being PoC || GTFO …… It’s never “just a pdf”


    Technical Note: This file, pocorgtfo16.pdf, is a polyglot that is valid as a PDF document, a ZIP archive, and a Bash script that runs a Python webserver which hosts Kaitai Struct’s WebIDE which, allowing you to view the file’s own annotated bytes. Ain’t that nifty?

      I need to go back and fire up one of the NES ROM’s

      I really enjoy reading PoC || GTFO. It takes me back to Fravia’s Fortress, BBS text files, old 2600 and Phrack – telling technical stories with some flair and style.

      I have the PoC || GTFO “bible”, the leather-bound tome with some of their best work so far and it’s really fun to see all the old advertisements and diagrams in print. Highly recommended if you’re at a security conference and can score one in person.

        I hope they continue to publish the “bible” versions every year or two. I love having it around and discovered some articles I missed on the first pass through.

        1. 2

          Have you found any of the easter eggs in the ‘bible’ ? Some of those periods aren’t.

        2. 3

          Really enjoyed the bit about trying to bodge a Cavalier’s PCM into ignoring the anti-theft logic. It told a good story, and covered every level of experience. I learned some stuff, which is what PoC || GTFO is all about (often, what you learn is cosmic horror).

          1. 1

            Cosmic horror is edifying.

            *slow clap*

            At this rate, their polyglot PDFs will also be multi-arch bootable disk images in no time.

              All systems evolve until they can send email…

            2. 1

              Page 58 FTW. That just blew my mind.

              1. 1

                How have I never seen these before…
