  1. What happens in real life when you need space to work and desk top is piled up? You clean it off. As far as I'm concerned, the desktop of your computer is no different. And 51 icons as an option in the poll and 22 percent for it being the majority? Is that a joke? Man hackers are messy. I can't stand no more than 10 or so on mine. Usually stick to only putting the most basic applications I use there.
  2. Most friendly distros such as Ubuntu will detect Windows during the installation. Regardless of whether or not you tell it to import account settings, if it offers to, you can almost be completely sure it'll put in a Windows entry for you in grub. If you're running Vista and don't want grub as the primarly bootloader, look into using EasyBCD to set up the dual-boot.
  3. You should be able to upgrade the firmware on it than so it has support. If your router doesn't provide the feature get DDWRT/OpenWRT.
  4. Nice video, though you may want to mention where you get everything, like pdump. I know you mentioned the little test program being on the same page, but unless everything else is there too it doesn't do anyone any good.
  5. Couldn't you blacklist the clients you don't want connecting?
  6. You'd probably haft to be admin... If not in XP most defintely in Vista/W7.
  7. And which ISP is this? Sounds like they're setting themselves up for trouble.
  8. I bet Matts just itching for payback for the unicorns ;)
  9. Real decent tables are usually not offered over the internet pre-computed due to thier size. If you want to really get into this, look on Ophcrack's project page where Ophcrack ships portable drives with the better tables on them for a fee. You could create your own, but it takes a lot of time and resources to do so. By a lot of time, I mean not just hours, but days, weeks, or years.
  10. Ask him if you could borrow it for a sec to check on something and than add an account. Ideally it would be nice to change the password so you know it. Wish there was a program out there could take a hash and put it in the sam rather than calulating a new one from the clear-text password you provide. If i'm wrong though (wouldn't be surprised), than get his hash, copy it to a safe place, and put it back the way it was after.
  11. Yes the tables are loaded in memory, but you cant select a specific table. You just select the directory and it uses any tables located there.
  12. Some routers have the option to expose one computer on the network to the DMZ, but I still don't think it would isolate it from the rest of the network.
  13. I think it determines speed to and from the test server. Though it may be from the same company, thier servers may be spanned over different locations hence the difference in results. Benchmarks are always rough estimates, and various other factors can contribute to the real upload/download speed you get at any given time.
  14. Password to lanuch the teacher console on the other more expensive version? Still a security risk if you got a copy and are running it on your own machine... Sounds like the developers need to come up with some more secure means, such as a dedicated server to serve the clients and teachers so you couldn't just get a copy of the teacher console and do as you please.
  15. Some models with the idea of this integrated chip with an OS on it thing sounds a lot like what you're implying, which no doubt sounds like a great idea to improve performance, though the advantage of the integrated chip rather than RAM would be that it would remain after power off. What I don't get is how you can expect faster boot times from RAM when any memory that stores the OS is flushed on power-down. The OS would need to be reloaded to this special allocation of RAM from a hard drive before it could boot. Really it boils down to developing motherboard sized ICs with enough storage capacity for a modern day OS. I can see SSDs one day getting small enough to integrate on a motherboard. Until that time it just isnt feasible.
  16. Yeah, the recovery partition is a problem now. The way they have it set up now, it is readily available for read/write in Windows by default on new machines. One of the first things I do for friends it to remove the drive letter for it in disk management.
  17. Acronis TI makes it dead simple and provides password protection for your backups.
  18. I think packet tracer requires you to be a Cisco networking student in order to obtain... Or at least legally anyway :)
  19. Ophcrack's tables cant be "loaded" as thier GUI foolishy conveys to the user. You put them in a tables directory and select that directory in order to use those tables. Hope that helps clear things up.
  20. Check out the man pages... that's what i'm doing :P man ettercap Use your left/right arrow keys to go through each page.
  21. If you can figure out a way to tunnel it through ssh to the ssh server at the end that can forward it to the correct application from there used to decode your data at the end it should be able to be done. No you can't change the lettering of characters in ssh... we're dealing with encryption here.
  22. You need ntlm tables for starters. The basic tables available can't crack anything beyond basic alphanumeric 5-6 character passwords. You will need to build your own if you want a better table. Unless you're doing pen-testing, really what you need to do is reset it with a password tool. This won't give you the password, just blank it or set it to the one you specify.
  23. You could tunnel the ssh traffic like you said to the other computer that can decode it I suppose. Then again, like anything on the internet, I don't think SSH would know what to with the data if it wasn't standarized.
  24. Whats the point of any mods? The data going out would be in ASCII regardless. Best answer here: develop your own encryption algorithm and communicate that way.
