Should you root your smartphone?

You may, or may not have heard of the term Jailbreaking for iOS. Rooting is much the same, except for the fact that Apple expressly forbids you from tinkering with your iPhone software. The Android robot, being the kind, open-source soul that it is, suffers from no such inconveniences.

You see, when you buy an Android phone, you are the FULL owner of the phone, and you should be able to do whatever you please with it. Yes, that includes feeding it to the crocodiles. (Don’t sue me if you lose an arm in the process!)

Media outlets were talking about how much faster they are than hard disk drives (HDDs) due to the lack of moving parts. In a way, they are not wrong.

What is the safest way of rooting an Android phone?

The steps necessary to root an Android phone vary widely, from “one-click” methods to “impossible”. It depends on the exact model of your phone and version of Android you are currently on (or desire).

Further complicating matters are the carriers. For example, the methods for rooting phone X on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile (or any “foreign” carriers for that matter) are often NOT the same. The same can be said of your current baseband/radio versions.

So at a bare minimum rooting an Android phone requires extreme attention to detail to make sure you meet ALL the requirements and not brick your […]

The penetration tester will be expected to emulate the actions that an attacker would attempt and will be challenged with proving that they were able to compromise the critical systems targeted. The most successful penetration tests result in the penetration tester being able to prove without a doubt that the vulnerabilities that are found will lead to a significant loss of revenue unless properly addressed. Think of the impact that you would have if […]

Difference between JavaScript and Java

Although JavaScript’s name appears to connote a close relationship with Java, JavaScript and Java are actually very different. One important difference is support for object-oriented programming. Although JavaScript is sometimes said to be an object-oriented language, its object model is quite different from that of Java and C++.

In fact, JavaScript does not support the object-oriented software development paradigm. Java is a strongly typed language. Types are all known at compile time, and operand types are checked for compatibility. Variables in JavaScript need not be declared and are dynamically typed, making compile-time type checking impossible. One more important difference between Java […]
