Hackers.mu organised another great hackathon


Operation PB


Why PB?
After Operation S.A.D and W.T.F, here comes operation P.B!

Sandboxing profile for xzdec
I personally worked on a project name the xzdec which is a decompressing tool. It was cool to learn a little bit more on topics concerning security of people.

Usage:
xzdec 'filename'.xz
Purpose
Instead of finding flaws, unlike previous hackathons, this time we're looking at ways to reduce the impact of vulnerabilities in popular linux softwares.
