When attempting to gain access to a server, there may come a point when you need to get around file upload restrictions to upload something.

Chances are that you're living in a city and/or state that's banned using your phone while driving, and because of that, many manufactures have added a "car mode" to their devices.

For example, a Disney Land Geofilter will only appear if you're actually there. Rather, your phone needs to think that you're at Disney Land. By spoofing your GPS location, you can effectively travel all across the globe — at least in the eyes of Snapchat.

Considering that the average movie ticket these days is $8.38, it's not much of a surprise that Netflix is kicking ass.

While no one's arguing that it isn't a great deal, the biggest issue most users have with the service is the limited amount of available content. Anything?
Local port forwarding is good when you want to use SSH to pivot into a non-routable network. But if you want to access services on a network when you can't configure port-forwarding on a router and don't have VPN access to the network, remote port forwarding is the way to go.

XSS Shell works by setting up an XSS Channel, an AJAX application embedded into the victim's browser, that can ob...

Even more perplexing, AirDrop was just working flawlessly before the update.
