Calculating hash(md5, sha1...) of a hex string in Python

To calculate hash of hex string in python:

In [1]: import hashlib

In [2]: import binascii

In [3]: hex_string = '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'

In [4]: hashlib.md5(binascii.unhexlify(hex_string)).hexdigest()
Out[4]: '0c6f3dd3d5d896e0f3f49dfae0437ba1'

In [6]: hashlib.sha1(binascii.unhexlify(hex_string)).hexdigest()
Out[6]: 'fc6d7e7925e18c5bed6314ea112a230948cfde75'

In [7]: hashlib.sha256(binascii.unhexlify(hex_string)).hexdigest()
Out[7]: '73a1b42ca158112e233cd42b0352355ca1ab8cafc2475c2e888285275dbf4ab1'

Out[8]: '500228880eb22d53cd4cc1c7b42930fef37a4034299b49198bb52cb3ab4bdca3643d952aba662b1b60df723a273af6903bf2bebe9327b0cd53548e3d9a4348f5'

We might wonder how to disable the USB ports on Mac to prevent data copy to external USB mass storage devices. The USB kext on os x is loaded at the time of start of the system, this can be loaded / unloaded using kextload or kextunload command. To disable USB port on Mac , follow below steps:
On Macs running Mountain Lion, Mavericks  and Yosemite:
Unmount any connected USB devices to the system by running below command                  $diskutil unmount /Volumes/USBDISK.Now unload the USB related kernel extensions in the following order using kextunload command.sudo kextunload -b
sudo kextunload -b
sudo kextunload -b

       This will unload the USB kext and disable the USB ports for storage devices on Mountain Lion, Mavericks  and Yosemite.
On Mac running El Capitan:
Unmount any connected USB devices to the system by running below command                  $diskutil unmount /Volumes/USBDI…

How to find firmware or boot ROM version in Mac OS X
