There hasn't been an update in a while, I know... been really busy with school but [finally] the semester is over just in time to kick into summer and a new series of videos! =)
First I would like to thank you guys for the love! All these months I was busy a lot of you sent emails, helped share files on facebook, etc. Big thanks for the motivation!
Second, although I have been busy with school, at the same time having a lot of fun programming this [new] blog in PHP, setting up a new server and the like. I would appreciate if you guys kept an eye for vulns and emailed 'em to me at admin @ technicdynamic.com ; but please no automated tools - obviously always a bad idea to run on a live server.
Let's go on with the updates:
Blog Update #1
- Comments are enabled for users logged in!
- New users will be able to register starting next week.
- Old users are now able to retrieve their passwords again.
Last but not least, I would like to ask you guys for suggestions, topics and fresh ideas of videos to make. You can also email it to me on the address mentioned above.
So that's it for now guys, more updates coming this week along with a new video tutorial.
Stay tuned! (...)
It's amazing how quickly technology evolves nowadays... something you wouldn't even think could be possible, simply happens right before your eyes. Ten years ago, I first acquired my first computer and began making websites in HTML for fun, learning about web servers, programming etc.; back then, even to setup a simple local server was complicated for me. Fast forward ten years and we can carry a web server in our pockets and make changes to our website while taking a subway to central park. ;)
If you have been using Linux for a while, then you most likely know the feeling of using a system built upon a concept that is "simply right". The open source model along with world-wide collaboration gives the user a feeling of being a part of something special. The evolution from the earlier Linux distributions up to today is huge... it is no surprise that most supercomputers run Linux. Not a surprise that most smartphones run Linux either. You could probably run Linux on a toaster, but that is beyond the scope of this article.
With Android it is no different. Although being a late competitor in the smartphone race, it clearly took over the game quickly -- which reminds me, happy fifth birthday Android! In my opinion, being Linux-based and open source made a difference in comparison with other brands of smartphones out there that never really took off. The freedom Android provides is also critical to it's success when it comes to giving the user full control of their device... which brings us to this article. (...)
Today we're going to be checking out Reaver on the Nokia N900! A few months ago this new attack was released against WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) which brute forces the PIN that controls the router. This completely compromises the target router and reveals the pass phrase to the attacker. Let's check it out.
To install anything on the Nokia N900 is quite simple because of the support provided by the Advanced Packaging Tool and of course, being backed up with a legit Debian-based Linux distribution.
Before being able to install any applications, however, a few requirements must be met. The first is to have root access to the device. This can be easily done installing rootsh from the application manager. Furthermore, I have already made a video showing how to do this previously -- click here to check it out!
Besides that, as I also mentioned in a previous article ("Hacking WEP on Nokia N900") you will need the awesome bleeding-edge drivers, courtesy of David's IT Blog. The drivers are really easy to install: you simply download version 0.1 from this page then follow the instructions provided in the README instructional file. This is what makes the Nokia N900 capable of monitor mode and packet injection. (...)
