Zidonuke, also known as Zidonuke Ghost, Zidonuke Marshdevil, previously known as Sidonuke and Zephyr Nayl on Second Life, is a computer programmer and furry fan from the United States. His fursona is a rabbit.
He currently contributes programming and security consulting to Starbound, also contributed large financial donations to their project. However since the Summer of 2011, Zidonuke's activity on the internet has waned.
In the past[when?] he has jointly contributed to the upkeep of Huggle (an anti-vandalism tool used widely on Wikipedia), as well as contributing to Second Life by reporting various bugs in the service. However, he was later[when?] banned from Second Life by Linden Labs after reporting and exploiting various security issues with Vivox, A voice service in use by Second Life. In response, Zidonuke made an alternate SL account ("Zidonuke Ghost"), and has been using it ever since. He is also known for his contributions to improving server side security in the game Terraria on the TShock project.
Zidonuke was a coder and administrator on F-List, but was banned in February 2011 after spying on users through the use of a TCP dumper. Once discovered, he gave all users administrator access, removed bans, and published the site's code online. F-List Administration spent 5 days restoring the site entirely from backups.
Zidonuke released versions of the Minecraft Server Daemon called Bukkit, which permitted old clients to connect to the new server.  However it was speculated the build was malicious when he begun to crash servers with an exploit in movement packets that allowed a floating point NaN (Not a number) to be used in the Y axis, putting the server into a infinite loop calculating physics. The exploit existed in vanilla minecraft since version 1.0 and was reported by Zidonuke to Mojang multiple times before his demonstration. This build was proven legitimate by Dinnerbone, one of the project's developers and administrators, though it was later removed after an exploit was added to the source code post-release.
