  1. It pretty much has all you need. However, if you are interested in a longer stronger WiFi connection along with what comes with it ... get another of the Wifi dongles matching the one you get with the Boost and - Amplifiers for both from the HakShop. A word of caution on the Boost. The Wifi Dongle and its antenna uses RP-SMA connectors while the Tetra uses SMA. These look the same at first. The difference is whether the center pin of the connector is male or female. The Wifi antenna for the dongle looks exactly the same except for the very similar antenna. If you force connecting, yo

    Don't be a pirate if you don't know how to sail a stormy sea with people out to get you! You can listen to this while you ponder that. Or start with Raspbian - and a Raspberry PI 3. The beauty of this is that if you screw up, just re-image the SD card and start again. You can then step up to Kali which is available on the Raspberry Pi and has the same Debian base. Everything you learn on Raspbian will be a head start for Kali. The Raspberry Pi is a good learning platform. If you are asking this question, as stated, you are not ready to mess with it. You will spend y
  3. Could shift that domain around periodically and provide the info here -only for logged in users or provide it through apps/modules on Hak5 products.
  4. I've thought of using these for this sort of thing. Essentially it's the Nvidia graphic computing ability without the video producing parts. More compact. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/autonomous-machines/embedded-systems-dev-kits-modules/ Thoughts?
  5. I just discovered this book. For the next 3 days it's .99. I wish I had it sooner, it's answered some questions that I prior got answered painfully. His sample code is quite worthwhile ... One example is enumerating network interfaces and changing their properties. http://mikefrobbins.com/2017/12/27/my-new-powershell-book-is-on-sale-for-99-cents-until-the-end-of-the-year/ http://mikefrobbins.com/2017/10/19/configure-internet-connection-sharing-with-powershell/ https://github.com/mikefrobbins/PowerShell PS: Never heard of the guy before today. I'm not spamming for him.
  6. This one is quite nice. https://hakshop.com/collections/wireless-gear/products/ralink-rt3070-usb-wifi-adapter Check this out with it. https://hakshop.com/collections/wireless-gear/products/long-range-wifi-kit Or those and more. https://hakshop.com/products/hak5-long-range-wifi-field-kit
  7. Let's put this on topic. Hack his internet, steal all his money. Put bugs on his phone line, find out who his mistress is. Force the house into a distress sale and buy it with his money. Sheesh - curtains? Good lord.
  8. Good to know. In case it happens again, how long would you recommend waiting for a shutdown until it's surely safe? I feel for you. Race conditions can be hard to nail.
  9. Interesting - because the problem I described definitely went away with this release. :-) It was there 2.01. I was just kidding with 2.03. I'm sure it will happen some day. Thank you for all your work.
  10. I just upgraded to 2.02 - uneventfully this time. I can confirm that recon now gives the clients. Also fixed, a reboot or shutdown runs clean even if the red led is blinking. The red led starts blinking for recon, as expected but it does not stop when recon is complete. Is there a reason for this? Anyway, it does stop for reboot or shutdown which is great. Before it kept blinking. I would have to wait for many minutes to assure hopefully it was not writing to SD - then pull the plug. This is cleaner. Thanks. I also backed up /etc/config/firewall in it's edited, permit Web UI and
  11. Actually I did a firmware recovery and the "special factory bin file" gave me 2.01. It sure looked like a reflash anyway. Seb - is this just my imagination?
  12. Further thoughts... I notice that it's possible to sftp into the pineapple out of the box. To Seb's suggestion for an improved Networking module, include this too? I also think it could be handy to have a "Lab mode" in which things are relatively open and protected behind a firewall and an "Engagement mode" in which things are more locked down, according to particular needs. Lab mode could be tied to a particular router mac address etc. So if that was not available, it would go into "Engagement mode". By the way, another use for the RJ45 would be point to point, where the pineappl
  13. Thanks just_a_user - that was just the right thing. I don't think I had done that before. The strict firewall is a nice feature but I think that this should be be made clearer in the documentation. I definitely will modify the /etc/config/firewall depending on where I am and what I'm doing. It's odd because I think that the Wifi is a better idea to secure. If I don't want someone accessing my Pineapple through the eth0 connector - I should think I simply would not plug it in. Which of these to enable is potato potatoe to me. Right now, I am experimenting and everything is behind ano
  14. Thank you Sebkinne - The Tetra seems to be up in every respect, except the RJ45 Wan Port. This includes using the Wifi Dongle provided by Hak5 in the "boost" kit. I was not concerned for hardware with 100% CPU utilization but it seemed symptomatic since i never asked it do anything. So why was it working so hard when I didn't ask it to do anything? Why in particular in connection with the RJ45? OK, so I have been connecting to the Pineapple through the RJ45. Maybe I forgot how I enabled that? However, with only that connection - and no wifi dongle, I am not able to connect to the web
  15. It has not gone so well for me. I used the Web app on the pineapple to upgrade. After awhile, I connected with the Android connector. I went through the setup stuff, providing my password and so forth. I got into the web app through the Android connector. After a couple of tries, I noticed the dashboard indicated 100% CPU utilization. That did not sound healthy. I also notice that the web app is not responsive to menu selections. After some reboots, I did put it in Deny mode. Still, nothing has gotten better. During none of this was I able to reach the web app through the RJ45 Et
  16. A couple of questions - how long does it take to finish flashing and get to reboot? If we wish to flash the device in the "Factory Reset" process, is it best to use the original binary given in that process or is it best to use 2.01 which was recently released? If I am able to get to the app using the Android connector and/or the usb ethernet device, and it says 2.01 - but seems not quite right, should I do a factory reset or what? Yes my question was about the Tetra, not the Nano. My mistake to be in the wrong forum.
  17. UPDATE - the 100% cpu utilization did not happen when I booted again with the RJ45 not connected.

  19. The latest version is a tad twisted. Once booted, you will not be able to SSH to it. If you have a monitor, mouse and keyboard, you only need to gparted to extend the image into the full range of your SD Card (at the end of this post) First, you will have to establish serial hardware capability to the Pi. I used this product from Adafruit. make sure that what you use is 3.3v - NOT TTL or 5v signals. A gadget such as this is very handy if you are doing anything with the Pi. https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-5-using-a-console-cable/connect-the-lead The connectio
  20. How have you enjoyed/used HACK RF One? Check out the Bus Pirate. It can manipulate I2C devices. BIOS passwords are usually stored in clear text because who would use the i2c to get at the flash memory? Of course you have to open up the computer, find the chip, solder on some little wires but the rest is pretty easy. http://dangerousprototypes.com/docs/Bus_Pirate
  21. Yes, my dear we all know about Orange Pi, Pi Zero, Banana Pi, Raspberry pi and the all new cluster you never heard of fruit salad pi with jetson tx2. Absolutely no new information in your post RazerBlade. I think you missed my point and you still don't have any software. So back to the jetson tx2 with bayesian analysis and auto-hak exploit generation. No, I didn't write that and it's not available either. Let us know when you do something.
  22. One can get or create most of the things found in Squirrel and Rabbit but for a Raspberry Pi. Certainly the Pi has an ample programming environment and none of this stuff is that hard to conceive. The problem with the Raspberry Pi or anything more powerful is that it looks like that thing, it's bigger, harder to hide and would attract immediate attention. No? As for "$5.00" - that's probably about 20x the cost of the processor in the Hak5 products. Add more stuff for a second Ethernet port or whatever, and it's more still. If you think the Pi is a better path for your needs, use it
  23. This is interesting because I still can't find a menu that leads to that page. However, thanks because that's exactly what I was looking for.
  24. I was an original subscriber. Back in the day, there was useful information there. Of course that was a day without an internet and so getting a hack out to general readers in a month or so was a great thing. There was also a magazine called '73' which was mainly for Radio Hams but went beyond the boy scout follow the rules articles in other sources. Radar Trap hacking was a topic I remember from then. One especially interesting one used passive modulation to trick a radar trap into indicating a false speed.
  25. I realize the maximum Ampere Hour (AH) consumption for the Tetra but in an actual engagement, it will be lower. There may be bursts of high consumption and then periods that are reasonably idle. I am looking then for particular engagements, what you ran, how often you ran it, and what the AH usage was over many usage cycles and hours. Sharing this will help people plan how long a Tetra can run on a particular battery (such as the one included in the Tactical) before it needs to be recovered from the site. You don't have to be too specific about the design of the engagement, just gener
