Presto now on github

A recent discussion on our IRC channel reminded me of my old tool presto which can modify the UID of any running process on FreeBSD via write access to /dev/kmem.

Yes, of course this not a security problem, but sometimes this comes in handy - E.g. if you need to promote a running editor to really write that file now.

I dusted it off, converted the old RCS to git, updated it for current FreeBSD versions and put it on github here: https://github.com/Sec42/presto - so if you want to play around with it - go ahead :-)

– Sec
