  1. Here is a little discussion of using EDPR for cracking passwords, hopefully WPA would be similar: http://news.electricalchemy.net/2009/10/cr...s-in-cloud.html
  2. It would be a nice thing to do, be aware that monitoring usage and traffic can be difficult. For example, files can be encrypted before storage, making their contents completely unknown. Generally, free shell hosts focus on limiting the resources consumed, so that no one account can take up too much disk space, network bandwidth, cpu usage, or memory.
  3. Streaming to multiple website visitors should be done through software installed on the web server. Icecast for example can be installed on Linux or Windows. Use a local audio player such as VLC that supports the Icecast protocol. The audio is then streamed from your local system to the server, before going out to all the listeners. Another option is to use a hosted streaming service, such as Ustream.
  4. Has anyone tried releasing Hak5 as DVD or BluRay? Many people still watch video on optical formats :) Going to try making a disk with QDVDAuthor http://www.getdeb.net/software/QDVDAuthor or DeVeDe http://www.getdeb.net/software/DeVeDe and post if the results are decent.
  5. there are some working torrents for seasons 1, 2, and 5 on mininova http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=hak5
  6. a number of free & open source games do work out of the box and install with a few clicks, such as https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Games#Nat...0Ubuntu%20Games wine has gotten pretty good, the interface might be improved to run automatically for many of the supported windows games as the number of linux users grow, more developers may consider native ports, similar to how games are currently released for both pc and console
  7. Runescape is one of few examples where a Java applet works well to provide cross platform browser based support.
  8. from black hat presentation http://hackaday.com/2009/07/29/black-hat-2...ull-characters/ probably browsers will be patched soon, still kind of shocking to know such flaws exist
  9. this is a rootkit for the MBR (bootkit) that intercepts the key when entered by the user. the truecrypt encryption has not been broken. it seems they could take more measures against this type of software keylogger though
  10. hey great idea! how about posting the XPM as well? would be cool to see hak5 related splash screens, made a topic including some here: http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13855
  11. From S05E24: After all that work to make a USB multipass, why not spruce it up with a Hak5 boot splash image? Follow the directions above to make an image in the proper XPM format, and Gzip it to use in Grub. Share it with fellow fans and say goodbye to the monochrome boot selector :D Here are a few popular wallpapers converted for Grub: (source) (source) (source) (source) (source) Also available for download here.
  12. might want to link directly to the post: http://noobs-to-expert.blogspot.com/2009/0...ddvd-drive.html and mention what's included: 1.Windows 98 Boot Disk 2.Knoppix Loader 3. Xp Installation 5.Live XP HD! 6.Acronics Disk Director Suite! 7.Kaspersky Rescue Disk 2010 nice suite and interesting alternative method, thanks for sharing!
  13. nicely done! seems to be working pretty well :)
  14. did you boot from the cd, or put it in while vista was running? for Loony's method (classic dual boot) you must first resize windows partition with the management console, then boot using the cd here is one good guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDu...after%20Windows for the alternative wubi install mentioned by h3%5kr3w, windows should be running and no partition resizing is needed, because the installer will create a virtual filesystem inside a large file in the windows drive
  15. how challenging is installation of mediatomb and other media servers under freenas or openfiler?? yeah just noticed that, not sure what happened though since i dont remember going off the first page still hear UPnP questions pretty frequently so hope someone finds it useful, install and setup of the server has gotten much more straightforward
  16. sounds like a firewall issue, check your system & router configuration
  17. command & conquer for storyline and level of immersion, total annihilation for pure gameplay, starcraft for multi-player, and rome: total war for tactics
  18. think it depends on the situation, in your case the iscsi would be sort of redundant since the drives are already part of a zpool
  19. here is a demo of HTML5 for video: http://www.dailymotion.com/openvideodemo make sure you have b4 at least, it worked okay for me using FF 3.5b4pre (shiretoko package in ubuntu jaunty)
  20. Uploaded seasons 1-3 of Hak5 to the Wuala P2P filesharing service: http://www.wuala.com/Creative%20Commons/videos/Hak5/ They use a modified version of the BitTorrent protocol, which works through a web-based or standalone Java client. Videos can be streamed over the P2P network into any player: File system integration lets the directories and files be accessed through regular file managers in any OS: Now in the process of uploading season 4, they give you 1gb free and you get more by sharing space on your hard drive, so if anyone wants to help upload recent eps it would be appreciated :)
  21. do want!! at 2mpbs it should be possible to do 30fps with some video encoding hardware, although 5-10fps is still respectable
  22. hacdc hosted an afterparty for shmoocon, it seemed like a cool place and id like to check it out again sometime
  23. like the custom theme and logo, nice job guys :)
  24. ubuntu linux is great for media streaming because it is pretty easy to set up mediatomb UPnP server http://mediatomb.cc through the package manager http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/mediatomb
