Become a sponsor to Dhiru Kholia

Hello - This is Dhiru Kholia here. I am an open-source developer interested in security, reverse-engineering, hardware design + hacking, solid documentation, and amateur radio stuff.

You might know me from my work on JtR (John the Ripper) and OSX-KVM projects.

Currently, I am working on a bunch of fun projects:

The sponsorship funds (will) allow me to be bolder, and more creative in my projects. Example: Safely dumping the firmware from the Quick 857DW+ hot air station requires buying, and learning about STM8 microcontrollers.

Even the smallest of sponsorship funds have a great impact on motivation - all contributions are welcome - thank you! :-)

Refund Policy: We are UNABLE to issue refunds for any reason whatsoever.
