  1. @barry99705 Kali is too bloated. I found an old script on the Ubutnu forums that I think we can upgrade to make common Debian distros similar to Kali. Its from like 2011. I AM NOT THE AUTHOR! #!/bin/bash # System Configuration & Utilities apt-get -y install build-essential apt-get -y install linux-headers-`uname -r` apt-get -y install sysvconfig apt-get -y install bum ## Boot-Up Manager apt-get -y install tofrodos ## DOS utils apt-get -y install xinetd ## why not. apt-get -y install unrar ## RAR support apt-get -y install p7zip-full ## 7-Zip support apt-get -y
  2. After doing a bit of goggling, I found a site that explains how to slipstream Win7's SP1, painstakingly w/out relying on the freeware app - RT Seven Lite. I can't find an open source equivalent for Win7 or Linux, except for Unetbootin. I have no experience setting up a bootable USB for Windows7 using either Unetbootin or RT-7. But, I think it's possible to dump my student copy of the Win7 installation CD onto my HD and apply the service pack by mounting it on Win7 VM. Can anyone find an alternative to RT Seven? Whats the best( hak5) method?
  3. Ubuntu! You're right....it works on the first HDD...go figure.
  4. The following error appears when I try to install Windows7 on my 360GB HD: Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information. I used the diskpart utility to clean the HD, create a partion and format it as ntfs. detail disk shows the following: Vol## ltr labl fs type size Status info 2 C NTFS Partition 335GB Healthy I got Ubuntu12 on the first HD, set to load w/out Grub. I'm trying to set up a dual boot (Ubuntu/Win7) for a f
  5. @digininja So, technically Bill Gates can read the e-mail of anyone using M$ Exchange according to your analogy, even though it's closed source...
  6. While we're on the topic, KVM switches like proskater123's seem pretty antiquated now. I remember selling these type of devices like 11 yrs ago when Linksys WRT's and 1GB USB thumb drives were hot. Whats the next generation of these kind of devices? I personally use a router and good ol' remote admin to deal with multiple computers; switches are pretty inexpensive on eBay. I wonder if there's are like a wireless KVM switches for servers. I read that one advantage of a KVM is that it can use virtual disks of many kinds, for example images of USB drives, which can be mounted as SATA drives.
  7. I honestly didn't notice any similarity....youre right....it was random....you may delete if its bothering u. Next time i'll write about digestible bacon-RFIDs, sorry! :D
  8. yes they hack fooods together so we don't all wobble around wearing sunglasses and your people are security conscious, good mix. is there a point of u asking mr. penguin? Did I somehow make you wakeup?
  9. Dragon naturally speaking works fine!
  10. Is uNetbootin the only way to make a bootdisk? Can any of the L33tHax0rZ here explain how to prepare a bootable ISO drive using Linux system tools?
  11. @TN.Frank Well, a public WiFi hotspot is public, and usually monitored and might even be compromised by a hacker. Security experts recommend setting up a VPN on your home network so you can tunnel from the pub WiFi to your own dedicated ISP using encryption to CYA - (cover your ass). There're a lot of free VPN services available that you can sign up for, some of them are actually located outside the U.S. so, your IP will look like it originated from some place else. Either way, the VPN admins on the other end can monitor your traffic, unless your connecting to private sites that implement SS
  12. @TN.Frank Thats only possible if you're running network services on your wireless network such as SSH/CUPS. SSH is a secure protocol designed to allow remote access to your network. I doubt your ISP set you up with such third party services, most don't even enable WiFi. You're best bet would be to encrypt all your traffic with using AES/WPA2, use mac filtering to allow just your PCs, hide your SSID and change your 63char hex pswd frequently. You don't have to go ape shit worrying. Check your routers manual for a list of features. RTFM as we used to say in the ol' days.
  13. Actually, the proper way to format a drive is by using fdisk to erase and delete the partition, just incase it appears invalid or won’t load, and then either mkfs.vfat or mkdosfs to create the (vfat) file system. Mount, df, dmesg | tail, and fdisk –l can be invoked to locate the USB once it’s inserted to confirm that it’s on the bus. I had to use fdisk –l since the system didn’t detect the my corrupted old USB. Here’s how to format the USB for uNetbootin: 1. Place the USB in the drive, switch to root and execute fdisk –l . It should display something similar to /dev/sdb1 on /media/986
  14. Thats true, BuckoA51....good point. Encryption is better than nothing! I use 23-factor authentication to secure my stuff...
