  1. Awesome, thanks the first one really helped. I didn't realize the service starts after you install it. The steps I needed were Edit /etc/dnsmasq.conf Specify interface=eth1 Enable DHCP dhcp-range=,,12h I also enabled an address for the host as well as set that address using ifconfig on the host, not sure if that is needed Restarted the service /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart
  2. Thanks for the responses. I am having some trouble with dnsmasq. I feel like the configuration I want is pretty simple, any ideas on how it should be set up? A basic tutorial would be great. I am looking online and I am seeing either the man descriptions or advanced configurations. The PC is running backtrack 4 by the way.
  3. Thanks for the response. Yes the wireless router is acting as a DHCP server. Even without a DHCP server on the PC, shouldn't the wireless clients be able to ping IP addresses?
  4. Here is my setup [WIRELESS ROUTER] ----- [ eth1 <PC> eth0] ----- [INTERNET] I have a PC which connects to the internet (via eht0). I want to share that connection with eth1 for the wireless router. Basically I am trying to set up my own little router here. The PC does not need to server DHCP, the wireless router can do that on its own. The PC just needs to forward all the traffic from eth1 to eth0. I thought this would be as easy as setting the wireless router up with a static ip of and executing the following on the PC echo 1 | sudo tee /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE sudo ifconfig eth1 netmask But something is getting lost along the lines. From the PC I can ping, but from the wireless clients I can't ping anything beyond the router, most ping attempts from the wireless get destination host unreachable. Am I going about this the completely wrong way? If this is the correct path am I just missing settings? I have also tried configuring the router to use the PC's IP as the gateway.
  5. You can build one http://www.digininja.org/projects/fon_serial_cable.php
  6. Yeah if it works, don't fix it. OpenWRT and DD-WRT are both great firmwares. You can't go wrong with either as long as the build is stable on your router.
  7. I learned a new word http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supplicant_%28computer%29 Thanks for the response (and the great work putting together jasager and interceptor). I understand the target audience for this device now, that clears things up.
  8. www.x-wrt.org is a web interface for OpenWRT. It doesn't come with OpenWRT so you will need to go to that site to get it. Releases are a few weeks behind OpenWRT. I prefer UI's simply because it is easier and for me, I am less likely to make a mistake.
  9. I got my Pineapple setup. It took a bit of work because I was having DHCP and DNS issues, but I can issue a wget on the pineapple and that succeeds (ping isn't good enough because previously I could ping but not wget). I also have a test virtual wireless lan through openwrt that I am able to connect to from a different machine too ensure routing is really working properly. The first thing I notice is Jasager responds "Ja, hier bin ich!" when my victim machine is looking for a wireless lan. But more specifically it responds, Ja, hier bin ich! But I am also unsecured so you don't need any key to get in. 1) It seems that the a way to defeat jasager would be to code the wireless manager so it only auto connects to a wireless lan where all the settings match, basically don't rely on SSID alone. Is this correct? I am testing all of this at home with my normal router right there. In my wireless manager on my victim machine, I actually see my home router listed twice, the secured network, and the unsecured jasager network. I couldn't get my victim machine to connect to the unsecured network. It ended up reconnecting to the secured network. 2) Is that the correct behavior? Basically you can't run an attack by spoofing a router when it is in reach? Or in other words, you will only be able to trick vicitims into connecting to their home router away from home (or work router away from work...) I really wanted my victim to connect to the unsecured network so I went into my home router, appended a 2 on the SSID and told it not to broadcast the SSID. I then refreshed the networks and I see the unsecured jasager network spoofing my home SSID but I couldn't connect because Windows Vista stated something along the lines of "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network" 3) So it seems #1 is already being done. Am I missing something? 4) Does the pineapple II (bought from the hak5 store) support power over ethernet? 5) Is the pineapple really needed? Can't you just run the same setup right from your machine with backtrack? I have the pineapple connected via ethernet to my laptop which bridges the laptops wireless connection with the ethernet connection. It seems like if I left the pineapple in a remote location and connected to a virtual wireless network on it it would probably drop packets like crazy, too much traffic, but is that suppose to be the idea that you can just set the pineapple up in a remote location and monitor it remotely?
  10. Thanks for specing this out. I checked the USA site, it doesn't seem like the Precision line has the Core i7 yet but the Lattitude does. I was able to price one for $1433 that meeted my requirements. Do you use a dell machine, what are your thoughts on their build quality? I have stayed away from them.
  11. That is an impressive machine and was also featured on anandtech http://www.anandtech.com/show/3662/asus-g7...-xlsized-gaming but a 17.3" screen is way too big for my needs.
  12. In my day to day life I see plenty of people not taking security seriously enough. I guess ignorance is bliss for these guys. They either think "WEP, it is equivalent so it is good enough" or "Nothing will ever happen to us" or the worst of all "We can't invest any money into hiring a network guy to secure and maintain our network, it just costs too much." Have you ever scared someone into beefing up security on your network? If so what sort of techniques seem to work best to get people serious about security?
  13. I have been looking into alternative hardware for the interceptor, if you don't check that forum please see this thread http://www.hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13182 The hardware I listed should also work for Jasager purposes. The most interesting looks like this guy http://www.alfa.com.tw/in/front/bin/ptdeta...Category=107225 I sent an email to alfa about purchasing information, awaiting a response.
  14. I am partial to OpenWRT if it runs well with X-WRT on the router or DD-WRT if OpenWRT/X-WRT isn't completly supported. When using DD-WRT make sure to get the latest stable development build. I usually look in the forums to see what Eko has released. OpenWRT is great, but generally DD-WRT seems to be faster at getting more devices/features supported. Both are great firmwares and I don't think you will go wrong with either so long as it is stable on the particular router you have. OpenWRT is really free and open source where as DD-WRT source has some controversy around it if that matters to you. I have tried Tomato but I wasn't impressed. I probably didn't give it enough of a fair chance because I am already familiar with OpenWRT/DD-WRT. But basically tomato just seemed to be geared towards being easy to use, rather then being feature rich. I'd start off by checking your routers compatability. For OpenWRT you need to check in two places Older List: http://wiki.openwrt.org/oldwiki/tableofhardware Newer List: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start For DD-WRT: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database and I usually read on the forums for the most up to date information.
  15. This looks really interesting, but I have no idea where to buy it from. http://www.alfa.com.tw/in/front/bin/ptdeta...Category=107225
  16. Awesome, thanks for this, I can't wait to give it a try.
  17. Ahh interesting, when I first came across this I thought it was so the Teeny could ready from a microsd card. For getting both devices to show up at the same time I was thinking they would be two completely independent devices which would appear to be connected throgugh a hub.
  18. There is no avoiding it, the little ducky is cute. I would bet nine times out of ten if I left a USB ducky sitting around an office or even a street someone would pick it up and plug it into a machine. But a command window opening up and disappearing with nothing else happening would be very suspicious. What are some ideas to make the situation less suspicious? Launch a webpage of a duck doing something silly? Maybe integrate an LED/speaker into the duck and have it physically light up and quack? Would it be possible to have the ducky be both an HID an a flash drive? This way it gives the user the appearance that the ducky is simply a flash drive. You can drop some stock images on it to make it look like someone lost it. No need to try and run malware from the flash portion, but the HID portion will still execute normally. Actually, having a combo HID and Flashdrive would help get around the autorun issues...
  19. Thanks, the price is awesome, but the CPU and resolution aren't up to snuff for what I am looking for.
  20. I just got an email back from abocom, they said this model is using Ralink chipset model #RT3050.
  21. I'd love an SSD. In fact I'd love an SSD for my desktop but the price hasn't been sweet enough for me just yet. I don't need a ton of storage space so the capacity factor isn't a big deal for me. I'll take a look at the aliendell, I haven't touched one of those machines since the dude your getting a dell days. Thanks for the input.
  22. I am looking for something no bigger than 16" so sizes 15", 15.4" 15.5", 15.6" and 16" all match that. I am not looking for 15" or 16" only. Anything above 16" is going to be too big. There are a variety of Asus, Toshiba and MSI's that are 16". I haven't seen many 1920x1200 laptops. I am just looking for the highest resolution I can get and 1920x1080 seems pretty common. If there is something that meets all other criteria with 1920x1200 that would be even better. Visual Studio gets cramped very quickly, the more pixels the better. I am looking for nVidia or Intel, no AMD/ATI.
  23. Here is what I want out of my next laptop Screen Size: no larger than 16" preferably larger than 15" but not a huge deal Resolution: 1920x1080 Video Chipset: nVidia or Intel CPU: Core i5 or Core i7 or better if there is something in the pipleline Brand: Preference towards ASUS or Lenovo, Toshiba, HP. No Sony. Memory: min of 4gb expandable to 8gb And obviously it should work well with backtrack. So far it looks like just the ASUS G51JX meets my needs. It seems like this model had some drivers issues so I am not sold just yet. Is there anything upcoming which would be worth waiting for?
  24. That would probably work for pineapple, but not for monkey/interceptop because it only has one ethernet port.
  25. Do you have any idea if this non descript WR5204 thing will work? It looks like it is made by abocom. Here is the user manual and specification download page http://www.abocom.com.tw/download_show.asp...45210DCABDF2EAD It looks like it supports some nice specifications, but I can't find out what hardware it is really using.
