Hackers.mu organised another great hackathon


Operation PB


Why PB?
After Operation S.A.D and W.T.F, here comes operation P.B!
You might be wondering why we chose the name PB for the operation. It was decided by Nitin, who was wondering what name would fit this operation. He then, to conclude, decided to name it Prison Break.

Playing with fire in jail

Operation Prison Break was a third hackathon organised by members of hackers.mu. It was a hackathon held in Lescalier, in a hall.

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.

Basically what it does, it decompresses files with .xz extension.
Monitored by Logan, I created a profile for xzdec, which you can see above. It was built using a whitelist approach.
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.

Technology keeps on evolving everyday and developers constantly look for more and more things to get their hands-on. In this article, I will be introducing a new full stack framework, called FReMP . The abbreviation used is not the best one, but it just gets the work done in justifiable ways. What on earth is FReMP stack? The FReMP stack is a highly scalable full stack framework, which can be used to build awesome web apps. The acronym stands for F lask, Re actJS, M ongodb and P ython. Unlike other famous stacks such as MEAN and MERN, the FReMP stack uses Python to handle back-end operations. Examples of such operations can be machine learning and artificial intelligence operations, web scraping tools or digital image processing.
