My name is Salvatore Fresta, aka Drosophila, I'm 23 years old and currently I live in Catania (Italy).
My interests are in information tecnology. At present I'm studying IT security to the University of Milan.
During the high school, I compared my interests and my knowledges with others guys and teachers. Although I studied Computer Science at school I built my own knowledge as an autodidact. I learned by reading books and writing softwares.
Using almost only GPL operating systems and softwares, such as GNU/Linux and *BSD, I learned very much by reading source codes, C code in particular. This hobby captures yet my free time.
As everyone can understand watching the information in this personal website, I have particular interests in security flaws. I am specialized in the auditing and exploiting of web and standalone applications, but I extend my security interests in many other fields such as networking.
During my security experience I tested many applications, also governmental, discovering some security flaws. Usually I report the discovered security flaw(s) to the vendor.
Although my real interests are in information tecnology, I have others hobbies such as playing Kung Fu Wushu (since 2001), listening music, watching films and reading books.
If you want to contact me, you can use the email address that you can find in this website or on some of my softwares. I like to receive e-mails and talk about security and information tecnology in general.
