  1. Well then...Lets just hope no one gets framed.
  2. Interesting concept, but would it work in safe mode/on the login screen? Cool stuff either way.
  3. I also..want to develop for the ducky. I like C.
  4. Sounds like a great idea. The challenge can be rooting the box or something. I doubt any destruction would take place to anything other than possibly the box in question. If it does there would be nothing stopping it from happening right now. If HAK5 got hacked it would probably be due to a faulty setup or a zero day exploit. This could give some hackers something ethical to do for fun (rather than something unethical...like hacking HAK5). Perhaps even a prize could be awarded to the first person to leave contact info or something on the box (stickers, or whathaveyou). I remember The Screen Savers doing this once. I don't think anyone successfully hacked the box. It was Windows XP with all of the patches at the time installed. I remember the computer mysteriously restarted, and I'm pretty sure that was the only thing interesting that came of it.
  5. I suppose if you really wanted to you could take ubuntu and change the look a little bit. Slap a few Hak5 backgrounds in there, change the icons, change the login screen to the default debian, and presto, hak5 linux. I'd use Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as a base. Pretty pointless though.
  6. What ever happened to it? Is it coming back?
  7. I'd be surprised if there was much out there that worked well. I've heard of such things, but I've never used one. Just curious, what do you plan on using it for?
  8. So the internet went down the other day and I got really bored. I made a program to beep at me when the internet connection came back on. Thought I would post it here in case someone could use it. I'm aware that the string doesn't need to be that big, I just never bothered to change it(it works all the same though). /*coded by xeemo 2009 because the internet connection went out and it was boring.*/ #include <stdio.h> //standard input and output #include <string.h> //needed for handling strings #include <unistd.h> //needed to read pipes from files int length; // variable for string length int main(){ FILE * ping; //activates the ping file char pingo[80]; //string for ping reply int lastchar; //variable to send the characters to the string from the pipe ping = popen("ping google.com", "r"); //command inserted for file in read mode through pipe lastchar = fread(pingo, 1, 80, ping); //characters 1 through 80 are read from the pipe pingo[lastchar] = '\0'; //pingo is a null terminated string through lastchar length = strlen(pingo); //length of string piped in if(length == 0){ //if no string was piped go to this select screen int select; //option variable printf("\ainternet is down. enter 1 to have system alert you when you have internet. enter 2 to exit.\n"); //beep and display message scanf("%i",&select); //get input from user switch(select){ case 1: loop: //loop this until you get a reply if(length == 0){ FILE * ping; ping = popen("ping google.com", "r"); lastchar = fread(pingo, 1, 80, ping); pingo[lastchar] = '\0'; pclose(ping); //close the ping file length = strlen(pingo); usleep(9000000); //spaces connections out so it doesn't crash if(length == 0){ //checks for connection again goto loop; //loops above if you're still offline } } if(length != 0){ printf("\ayour internet connection has returned\n");//beeps and alerts user when connected } break; case 2: //alternative exit option return 0; //ends default: printf("\aerror"); //what are you stupid? enter 1 or 2 like the menu says. } } if(length != 0){ //internet connection is up printf("\ayour internet is working\n"); } pclose(ping); //close ping file return 0; }
