  • The expression $(( $RANDOM * 6 / 32767 + 1 )) generates a random number between 1 and 6, which is then inserted into the escape sequence \e[3_m to switch the foreground color of the terminal to either red, green, yellow, blue, purple or cyan. The color can be reset using the escape sequence \e[0m. The full list of colors can be found here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Color_Bash_Prompt#List_of_colors_for_prompt_and_Bash

    echo -e "\e[3$(( $RANDOM * 6 / 32767 + 1 ))mHello World!"

  • Replace (as opposed to insert) hex opcodes, data, breakpoints, etc. without opening a hex editor. HEXBYTES contains the hex you want to inject in ascii form (e.g. 31c0) OFFSET is the hex offset (e.g. 49cf) into the binary FILE


    2
    echo -n $HEXBYTES | xxd -r -p | dd of=$FILE seek=$((0x$OFFSET)) bs=1 conv=notrunc
