  1. Oh, and thanks for the osmocom tip. Checking the site out now. Thanks m8.
  2. Well, this idea came about two days ago now, when i used the apn I added. I put the fast.apn.com address my phone uses and didn't add any of the special settings, leaving everything to default. I switch to it when the highspeed hotspot runs out and it will run at, roughly, 4-10mbps up/down. Well, after so long, either the phone needs a reboot due to the bogging of all the mms's not able to come in because i don't have the mms settings on this particular apn that I added. But, for some reason, it didn't bog down. Instead it said the network connection was unavailable and continued use of the da
  3. So, I discovered I could switch my apn on a metropcs phone without having root. This option completely negates the need for any wiFiRouter apps from the older system to insure the use of hotspot to bypass the speed/throttle built in by most cellular carriers. Then today I discovered my phone has a bug, that I cannot repeat purposefully yet, that cuts off all phone/text/mms capabilities when I switch the apn to the added apn I put in the list. This allows the phone to essentially become a dedicated hotspot. It in turn sparked an idea, that if I could cut off ALL mobile network traffic from w
  4. I was thinking back to the hacked drone episode where Darren forced snubs drone to the ground by using a dDos on the signal. So, last night that had me thinking about the other episodes that display the carrying of cellphones to record video and take aerial pictures.. Is there an Android-Ap or Cellular-Ap for controlling the droid through tethering the phone directly into the drone so that you can actually view the cellphone's camera while flying from inside your house while using the data plan and internal gps of the phone and camera? I figured since they have blu-tooth controls for these
  5. So, I was looking at the Ducky part of the site. I realized that when they talked about HID being the human interface that this product is similar to an old "parental" spy device I found back in the 80's & 90's. Before the USB Keyboard. There used to ba an extender that would open a program on your desktop,usually notepad.exe, whenever you used the predetermined key-combination from the vendor. It would then display all keypresses that it could hold in it's memory, of which, at that time, about 5 megs or so. The device was a ps2 device that plugged into the end of the keyboard and looked
  6. I am looking for material that might better explain the basic functionality of Anti-Virus programs such as the old mcafee and other programs such as security suites that are specifically produced by that system's managers? Maybe even to give a low-level user the introductory things such as how or what security suites look for when they scan a file, how the files are scanned etc? I mean, I have allot of questions on the subject, but they are all arbitrary and motivated for other reasons. I was wanting to find out the right direction in learning about this without it being through il-motivati
  7. Yeah, I could, but then it wouldn't be fun to try and reverse the engineering for other than intended purposes; would it? lol
  8. Darn. This really seemed like it would be interesting to try and alter the droid system and maybe reverse the use of the hardware.
  9. Just a small idea, but is it possible to get a kindle-2 (the inkreader with wifi only) to tether into a linux machine or windows machine and use IT(The kindle-2) as the actual plug-n-play wi-fi device? By this I mean I want to use it and it's hardware to pick-up wifi signal and connect to wifi points after I plug it into my desktop. Basically turning it into a plug-n-play usb wifi dongle..
  10. I want to thank you all for your input. I used the exfelon website and found that Apple might be able to employ me. And, considering it is probably the only store job where I can share my "legal enthusiastic knowledge" of products and their abilities with new and old customers, I would be happy to work there. At least then I could get my foot in the door of a company that isn't microsoft based. Anyhow, once again, I want to thank those who gave input. And as for Cooper, your evaluation and response is spot on from what I've been told in-person by other IT Specialists in my area at college as
  11. I am looking forward to joining my chosen profession in this electronic age. Unfortunately I am not sure where I should stop with my math education and which certs would be a good choice to obtain. I want to work in Information Security: Linux Systems are my preferred side of the digital divide. I also wanted to know where if any place in the U.S. would hire someone, regardless of their past? As, unfortunately mine isn't as clean as most, but my skillset grows as I prepare for a future in IT. Any suggestions on college courses from the KCTCS? That is, if anyone is familiar with that college.
  12. Ok, I've got an issue where a distro of ubuntu version 9.x something was upgraded and the system became broken to the point of not being able to login. I wanted to know, if there is a way to use a windows program to decrypt the home folder so that it's contents can be exported to another drive(external backup) in order for the system to be reinstalled without loss of data. Or is there a way to live boot the system and then decrypt and export the drive's data ( the home folder) or a way to permanantly decrypt the home folder so that I can use paragon extfs to access the drive and then export th
  13. Yes... The guy goes to school with me and he is part of a company will be providing security guard detail for fortune 500 clients or better once we get the building up and running.
  14. Yes, they are going to let me work for them and go to school. This was my stipulation when talking to the gentleman to begin with.
  15. I am trying to set a 3gb partition and a 20gb partition both in ntfs format. Everytime I put two partitions on the drive, windows will only show one partition. The reason for doing this is my multi-pass boot-disc will not work on a drive over 8 gigabytes when I use an iso imager such as Ultra Iso or Pendrive unless the iso is larger than 4gb and I am working with an iso that is less than 700mb. Is there any way I can make windows recognize both partitions on this usb drive ? If not, is there a way for me to take my Hiren Boot CD and use Pendrive Linux or Ultra ISO and force the image write t
