Python Operators from Scratch!!! — A Beginner’s Guide

  • An operator is a character or set of characters that can be used to perform the desired operation on the operands and produce the final result.
  • Now both 5 and 3 are called operands, + is the operator that performs addition and the final result is 8.
  • The different types of bitwise operators are Bitwise AND, OR, NOT, XOR, Right Shift, and Left Shift.
  • As the name suggests assignments operators are used to assigning the values to the variables.
  • Because the way the assignment operator works is that it assigns the value from the right to the variable on to the left.
  • As the name suggests the identity operators compare the id (identity) of two or more python objects such as variables, values, and many more.
  • In other words, others say that the identity operator can also be used to compare the memory locations of two objects.

Stranger Things, JavaScript Edition

  • We will look at some code snippets with surprising results, and we will do an explanation of what is going on, so that we can better understand our beloved programming language.
  • So that now explains the values we saw initially, the parseInt function result is being altered by the redix parameter which determines the base for the conversion.
  • For that the original expression changed a bit, let’s look at it ([![]] + [][[]]) which evaluates to the string falseundefined.
  • So basically we force an undefined value and concatenate it to the false string we know how to get, and the rest is history.
  • JavaScript is an amazing language, full of tricks and weirdness, and I hope this article brings you some clarity into some of these interesting topics and that next time you encounter something like this, you know what exactly what is happening.

  • If you don’t see them, you can turn on Pocket articles in your new tab, follow these steps.
  • A number of features have been fixed to improve Firefox accessibility.
  • Significant improvements to JavaScript debugging make loading and stepping through sources faster and with less memory being used over time.
  • Added support for the JavaScript API String.prototype.replaceAll() which allows developers to return a new string with all matches to the provided pattern while preserving the original string.

WordPress passwords, explained and cracked

  • The remaining part fo the hash JUMSAM1WlLTHPdH6EDj4e1 is the real randomness, generated by the salt+password passed in an undocumented encode64 function, which performs some bitwise operations on the input string and returns a 22 chars output.
  • So, we can re-write the logic - salt+password hashed X times and passed in encode64 - to perform a dictionary or bruteforce attack, and obtain the same 'last part' of the hash and that would be a successful hash crack!
  • Just like in the WordPress encryption procedure, the script takes the hash and isolates the salt, then it composes the password (salt+pass) attempting every password in the dictionary and md5-hashing X number of times, and we have seen how X is determined.
  • At this point, I think it is clear enough that if an attacker gets access to the database on a WordPress site, he/she can basically crack every weak password.
