    SAFARICOM DFHKMBL HUAWEI

    On the software side last year safaricom dropped Huawei SDP replacing it with one from 6d technologies. Skiza tunes platform is still Huawei based. I think the only reason they haven't replaced it is due to lack of a good alternative.

    Its Official: Africans have a gene that protects against severe Covid-19

    They lost the gene when they moved out of Africa as the article seems to suggest. Leave Africa, lose the genes. Tell them to back here and mate with Neanderthals to regain it. This world is full of stupid logic.

    How easy is it to get into Banking systems networks?

    Ollydbg, Numega softice, IDA, x86_64 DBG etc, they are debuggers not decompilers.

You cannot write code in language like C...

    Decompiling as of now is still a pipe dream due to loss of info in the code generation and optimization stages. Binary analysis is done by debuggers and disassemblers.

    How easy is it to get into Banking systems networks?

    I have implemented an OAuth 2 server using spring MVC I know what I am talking about. OAuth is a specification just like POSIX, developers are supposed to read the spec and create their own conforming implementations. Some of the implementations don't always do what the spec exactly says and...

    You claim decompiling applications is useless then remind me how the sony playstation network was hacked then. Wasn't it through debugging of the gaming console firmware that gave hackers info that led to the compromise of their entire servers?

    How easy is it to get into Banking systems networks?

    Some OAUTH 2 implementations are not as secure as you would want me to believe. It has been hacked many times, facebook, hotmail and many others have a story to tell. I wouldn't concern myself so much with the access token, it is the refresh token that is important.

    Kenyan banks lose billions each year due to IT related fraud mostly by bank insiders. For an outsider it is difficult but not impossible. With the advent of mobile banking android apps, a good starting point would be to disassemble one using tools like dex2jar, androguard e.t.c and collect info...

    AMD cpus are not vulnerable to meltdown and only variant 1 of spectre will affect them if and only if your kernel is compiled with the extended Berkeley packet filter Just-In-Time compilation enabled which is not a default.

    Raila Odinga calls for probe into mass failure of KCSE exam

    RAO does not want an educated and well informed society. Such a populace would never vote for him. It is important that a majority of Kenyans remain quasi-literate.

    Java Vs C#

    C# is a language that is going nowhere. It has been silently rejected by developers the way they rejected Intel itanium processors. Other than a few ASP.NET websites here and there, most windows software is still being written in C and C++. Microsoft itself tried to develop office using C# and...
