Who am I?
My name is Teodor Mircea Ionita and I am a Romanian guy. I go around the intertubes using the alias Shinnok. I chose this alias way back when I was a kid and one of my favorite games during that time was Mortal Kombat. Shinnok was the best character of the game in my vision thus I started using that alias and I stuck with it till this day.
What do I do?
I am an open source advocate and programmer, Unix junkie and sysadmin and occasional web developer. I am also wasting time as an independent security researcher focusing on areas like network/computer security, reverse engineering, application vulnerability research and exploit development, fuzzing, malware analysis, forensics and network vulnerabilities and exploitation. To sum up, I am interested and involved in a lot of cool stuff regarding information technology and security, computing and the internet and it tends to get really hard when I try to explain to someone in a limited number of words wtf I am doing or interested in. :-)
As a matter of fact, I think I have a passion for gathering knowledge on literally everything cool in this universe, studying and reading resources on a wide variety of topics and exploring new fields and ideas does not scare me. For e.g. I enjoy reading about time travel or survival tactics while doing a mass scan of internet hosts or fixing a segmentation fault, while chewing on a gigantic bag of popcorn and getting drunk in the backround&, just for fun.
If you want to know me more poke at the Rants section of the website, it's my personal blog. Take me there!
What about this website?
I use this website as a repository to publish and keep track of my public projects and work and to keep some of my useful stuff(like cheatsheets or code snippets) aggregated into a single place. It's nice to have what I think is useful somewhere handy and easily accessible and hopefully, some other people will find it that way too. I occasionally write or post interesting or funny things on my blog, Shinnok's Rants, which is available under /rants/.
My old website, #The Code, can be found here.
