About



My name is Felipe ‘4fx’ and here you will find a little bit about me…

At the age of 12 I got interested in becoming a “hacker” with the same mentality of most kids that age – breaking into friends’ computer and doing “takeover” on IRC channels – a few months later, however, I learned how to program and immediately realized that with code you could literally build anything. From that point of view, the idea of breaking into friends’ computers seemed quite lame… Why waste time with pranks and such when you can build anything?

Fast forward ten years and I am still obsessed with computers and programming in particular…

I am currently working as an Application Developer and on my time off I enjoy keeping my network & security skills sharp, since this is an area that complements my work very well. Hence you will find most of my network & security adventures here. 🙂
