My name is Oliver Morton.

I am a Security Research and Development programmer with over 6 years of Penetration Testing experience and a graduate from the University of Northumbria in Newcastle (UK) with a degree in Ethical Hacking for Computer Security BSc (Hons).

This is my personal blog and I aim for it to be fairly factual rather than opinionated, but with that said, any views or opinions expressed here are my own and not necessarily those of my employer.

I plan for posts to be almost exclusively regarding programming and Penetration Testing, in particular the tools and techniques that I use or develop.

**NOTE: Using the tools and techniques discussed on this blog on systems that you either do not own, or do not have explicit permission to test is most likely ILLEGAL and will land you in PRISON for a very long time. I share this information for educational purposes only and will not be held responsible for you doing anything illegal.**

If you have any comments (including any constructive criticism) on any of my posts please feel free to either leave a comment on the post itself, email me (grimhacker at grimhacker dot com), or find me on Twitter @grimhacker.

I also have (mostly empty) accounts at Github and BitBucket.
