  1. I am looking to find a way to ensure that I do not directly know the IP addresses of any customers. My initial thought for this is to assign addresses through DHCP (as is currently done) taking the IP addresses, salting and hashing them then applying that hash to to the records. Obviously this would not work for statically assigned addresses. I am fully aware that this is no way making my customers anonymous. My main goal is to simply ensure that no customer IP addresses are directly known, thus we cannot be compelled to release a customer's address. Also, we would not have any kind of historical record as to which customer had which address in the past (aside from the salted and hashed address within the records). Is this a feasible option? Are there any programs/protocols currently available to do this?
  2. WOW This is rediculous. So it turns out in C:/xampp/htdocs/dvwa there is a .htaccess file. In this .htaccess file you will find: # Limit access to localhost <Limit GET POST PUT> order deny,allow deny from all allow from </Limit> I think I just found the problem... Thanks for your help digip! It turns out the issue was so simple it went under the radar. Boy do I feel stupid for not checking for that sooner. Thanksa gain digip! I really appreciate all the effort you put in to help me out! I owe ya :)
  3. Well Saving the file as .htaccess was the easy part. I changed the save type to "All Types" and it let me save as .htaccess with no issues. I can see exactly what you are saying I should see within the apache conf file. <Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI Options All Indexes IndexOptions FancyIndexing AllowOverride All Require all granted (having the lines in .htaccess didn't seem to change anyhting (server root is C:/xampp/apache (default)), the override line was present by default) I still cannot see the DVWA folder within my apache web server. I have verified the file is in the correct location of the folder and i know it works because i can view the file from the apache web server but only from the XP machine. There is a line in the conf file that I am wondeirng about, I will tinker with it and see if it helps. <Files ".ht*"> Require all denied (does this need to be granted?) </Files> Still abffled by this... I just can't figure it out :/ Edit: tried changing the Require all denied line to Require all granted. This changed nothing. I should also add that I can verify that the Fancy indexing is working within apache as when I add the lines the .conf file layout of my apache web server changes slightly. As stated earlier tho, a .htaccess file in the root directory for the server does not yeild any effect. Also, I found this in the .conf file. # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All" # doesn't give it to you. Does this mean I need to specificaly name the dvwa folder in order for it to show?
  4. Ya I opened a ticket with the site admins and they pretty much ignored what I was trying to tell them. I've done all I can, the rest is up them...
  5. Great thank you! I'll give this a try once I have some time. Thanks again for the help!
  6. So tried to access the Apache server via the XP machine and I can see the DVWA folder present when I do this. Going to shows the dvwa folder. I am stumped as to why it is not showing up in my BT5 R3 VM. I have windows firewall disabled on the Xp machine, this doesn't see to be helping.
  7. http://store.apple.com/ca/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamers-G75VW-AS71-17-3-Inch-Gaming/dp/B007MW73C2/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1360558740&sr=1-3 5 minutees of google and I found this comparison. If you still want to buy a Mac for image reasons, that is your choice, but you would be spending over $1200 extra for this image. It is costing you $300 plus tax just to upgrade the CPU to 2.7Ghz ($250) and the HDD to a 750GB 7200rpm ($50). The ram is still half that of the ROG, screen is smalled and discrete GPU is worse. I'm not trying to tell you what to buy, but please do some research before you purchase your mac. I do not want you to over-spend on a mac for "image", when in reality you could have a fully functional PC (with better specs) for half the price. If you do decide to buy yourself a mac I just ask that you look at your alternatives. No matter what it comes down to, the skills of the individual doing the pen test, editing the video, music or photo will always show over their choice of hardware. Well, best of luck to you Skorpinok; I hope you can find yourself your perfect laptop.
  8. Yes I have and I recieve an error. Whe nI eneter this as a URL I recieve the error: Access forbidden! You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 403
  9. I see you have your flame suit on, I am not trying to flame but I do wish to parlay with you over this statement of "They have the best hardware." My question for you is what are you comparing it to? I know my brother has a very similar mentality to your statement in that he feels macs hardware is the best because he hasn’t replaced his MacBook in over 3 years where as he replaced his other laptops every year or two. Truth be told, he is comparing a $1900 MacBook pro to his previous laptops, those being cheap Toshiba, HP and ACER laptops. Before his MacBook purchase he had never owned a laptop worth more than $400. When comparing hardware of a MacBook to other laptop manufacturers you must compare on a level playing field. For example, it is NOT a level field to compare say, the Microsoft surface to an IPad; the Surface is more comparable to a MacBook AIR. When comparing something like the hardware of a $1K+ MacBook, it would be then reasonable to compare it with the hardware of a $700+ non-apple product. I don't know how apple gets away with charging the prices that they do. For ages people have complained that Microsoft charges "too much" for Windows, when apple is basically charging an extra 30% or more on all of their products. This is a rather extreme example, but it is very true. After I made my desktop I looked into what it would have cost me to get it in a mac. At the time, the cost for all the components of my computer was just over $3000. When I looked into what it would cost me to have gotten it in a custom Mac... It was absurd. Apple wanted $9500... For the same equipment that cost me 3x LESS. I full hearted feel that there needs to be an "Apple", there has to be a company to oppose Microsoft. I however cannot tell people to go buy a product that I know is overpriced. If you truly want a MacBook I would suggest finding yourself a good non-apple laptop priced lower than what you would have bought the mac for, then just go and buy OSX and install it on your laptop, if you so wish. You will save a pile of money and in the end you will end up with the same hardware for a whole lot less.
  10. If you want a desktop I highly recommend building your own. You will save money and be much happier with the hardware you chose. Laptops can be a tricky place because there are tons of factors. You need to decide exactly what you want out of your machine and work from there. Integrated graphics or a dedicated chip? How new do you want the processor? Do you want SSD or HDD storage? Go through a system piece by piece and develop what you feel would be your ideal system and from there begin looking for what types of laptops are available. Generally speaking steer clear of your generic brands like HP, ACER and Toshiba. While at times they can make good products, more often than not they only produce junk. I highly recommend ASUS laptops, I thoroughly enjoy mine, but I will warn you. Their tech support is pretty awful. I called them once to ask if I could purchase a driver install CD/DVD for my laptop as I wiped it and needed to reinstall the LAN drivers to get online. The woman on the line kept trying to get me to spend $100+ dollars to have some tech do it for me over the net... I don't think she understood why I wanted the disk, lol. Furthermore she proceeded to tell me that it isn't a good idea to download the drivers from their website because there could be "very bad viruses that could destroy my hard drive". So the jist of my story is this, good hardware, terrible service, never call them.
  11. The default port is 80, I just double checked the conf file for apache. I have The apache server and mysql server running (i included screenshots in the link), I also went to, which is the ip of the XP machine. You can see in the SS the information listed form the apache web server w/ php version, ip adress and port number. From what I can tell everything is set up correctly and according to the DVWA setup guide I should eb up and running. Theissue i seem to be ahving is that I cannot see DVWA in the web server, even tho i have it in the corect directory. Thank you for the advise, I'll continue to look into this and see if I cna egt it working. I will also look into getting a VM that already contains XAMPP and DVWA. Perhaps I am missing soemthing, but I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Thanks again for the info.
  12. So I have been looking to start getting into hacking and rfecently I decided that now is the time and I decided to try and start with DVWA. I installed Windows XP into a VM as well as BT5 (this is R2, I have recently updated). I installed XAMPP on my XP machine, extracted DVQA into the htdocs directory, started the apache an SQL servers, discovered my ip and entered it into my backtrack web browser. I cna see the apache web server but I am unable to see DVWA as i shoud. Instead, I am only able to see thumbs.db. Is anyone familiar with DVWA that can help me out? I greatly appreciate all help :) Here is a link to a post I made on the DVWA code.google page. I included screenshots in the post. http://code.google.com/p/dvwa/issues/detail?id=22
  13. It truly does scare me that the U.S. is resorting to these types of tactics and I genuinely am afraidn of them spreading to Canada. I would say "move to Canada, problem solved!" but trhthfully, who knows how long it will be untill these types of policies are adopted here in Canada? I honestly hope never, but it is impossible to know for sure.
  14. Hahaha great Digip! My inner Star Wars nerd was just came out. Greatest thing I've read all day. Bravo!
