  1. There are tons of CTF resources listed here https://laptophackingcoffee.org/doku.php?id=wiki:resources I've used a bunch of them, they are very helpful
  2. I would spend some time learning about grep, piping, and regular expressions. These are ridiculously important things to know, especially when trying to locate files, identify rogue processes on your system, and just generally staying in control of your system in a hostile environment, whether as an invading red team or a besieged blue team. For some reason very few "hacking" tutorials mention these, I guess they just assume you already know about them. There are many interactive tutorials for things like regex though.
  3. I heard about the Hak5 products from... Hak5 themselves. I watched a few of their tutorials on Linux stuff and here we are.
  4. Got it, script updated. I don't have my Alfa card on me atm, I'll test whether it works later. EDIT: Just tested it, updated script. It should work fine now.
  5. You right, you right. I changed the script to reflect this change, the old line is commented out just in case
  6. Hi guys, its been a while! I'm currently playing with some... legacy... hardware, and my old machine doesn't want to boot from a CD and is too old to USB boot. Luckily, I have a bunch of old floppies lying around, plenty large enough to fit Damn Small Linux or TinyCore onto! What is the best way to write/burn/enscribe a boot ISO onto a floppy disk from Linux? I tried to google it but all I found were windows utilities...
  7. I'm a bit late to the party but I've always viewed the term "hacker" as a sort of title, something bestowed upon you by others. A person can't really decide that they are a hacker, that isn't for them to say. It isn't about what you think of yourself, since that shit is all in your head anyway. It's all mostly about how other people view you. (just my opinion obviously)
  8. Just a heads up, you can get CPEH (Certified Professional Ethical Hacker) and CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker, up to v9) from places like LimeTorrents and The Pirate Bay, their lab exercises are very hands-on and are a great way to expand your knowledge.
  9. Only elite hackers can access the sticker set page ?
  10. Since the Hak5 stickers are no longer available for standalone purchase in the shop, I just had a great idea for a new product. Well actually not great at all but you know... Everyone knows that hackers love their stickers, and we often stick them to our laptops and other devices. So why not leverage stickers as a potential attack vector? A few of you may remember that concept iPhone case from a while back that claimed to absorb leftover RF signals to charge your phone (this concept is the basis for some wireless charging) but it charged the phone so slowly that it wasn't really the infinite power source it claimed to be back then. However... an entire smartphone is a very power-hungry device. What you could incorporate that same technology into a tiny IOT sticker that could, say, broadcast its GPS location or send deauth packets everywhere? It could use the extra static electricity from a laptop or 801.11 waves or whatever to slowly charge itself up, and once it reaches a certain threshold it will use that power to broadcast something or other, could be anything really, using a thin copper lining as an antenna. You could give these stickers out at conventions and other places, and all of the poor nerds who slap your sticker onto their stuff will be officially h4k3d! **rubs hands together connivingly**
  11. Check that your module is actually saved in a directory called /lib/modules/4.15.0-kali2-amd64 (i.e. try to cd into it). The directory may have a different name due to kali updates, in which case you simply must change the directory to the current one.
  12. You can find lots of cameras that are publicly on the internet through shodan.io
  13. May sound like a dumb question, but is your pineapple connected to the internet? Either through WiFi client mode or an Ethernet cable? (you can check by trying to load the news on the dashboard or checking for updates)
  14. Just got in, looks like a fun site!
  15. Why hello there, I was wondering what sort of software I should use for visual analysis of the XML files that nmap or masscan can generate. I want to be able to visualize the connections between several large networks in a fashion similar to zenmap's topology map, but zenmap has a limit to how many points can be plotted. Are there any good alternatives?
  16. Hey guys, I've recently been trying out some hacker wargames, and I am working on the Blowfish game from Smash the Stack (http://smashthestack.org/wargames.html). Getting into level2 was super easy, but as I am such an amateur, I cannot get to level3... Has anyone been through this one? I'm not asking for the solution, just some hints at what to look for. EDIT: I got into level3! Muahahah! Only ten more to go...
  17. Like these folks have been saying, the most important part is knowledge. If you approach the computer field with the mindset of learning your stuff and increasing your tech savvy rather than the mindset of becoming a hacker, you will be far more successful. And one day you will wake up and realize you already are the hacker you dreamed of becoming at the beginning.
  18. looks like a fun time! I once stuck my raspberry pi into a tissue box with antennas poking through but this looks a lot better
  19. Yeah I bought an elite kit a few months back, can confirm it has not changed (except for it being currently sold out)
  20. I use Google Play music, and even though my entire library is easily too large for my phone's 64gig storage, I can still have all my favorite songs downloaded. There aren't many cases where I lose WiFi access for a long time, but even then I still have about 72 hours worth of songs I can listen too without access.
  21. Really? I thought that hackers were supposed to be as noisy as possible when infiltrating a network!
  22. Perhaps botnet isn't the correct terminology, but I have a few old laptops sitting around unused. I was thinking that if you were running a program that handles some multi-threaded task and carries out processing methods on a large dataset, you could have a centralized system to keep track of overall progress, assigning the next item in the dataset to be processed as soon as one of the PCs finishes its current task.
  23. Hey guys, I was wondering what the best/most efficient way to get multiple devices to act in unison, as a botnet would, but without malicious intentions, as a botnet wouldn't. Would the best choice be to use some cloud platform like Apache Mesos or Docker sort of application? Amazon Web Services maybe? Would designing an actual botnet make any sense? Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
  24. Is it possible to run Piratebox without OpenWrt? I know the Nano already supports OpenWrt, and I'm pretty sure that the Tetra also does, but it isn't in OpenWrt's Table of Hardware yet... EDIT: I wish I could say that I mean the stock version of OpenWrt, but honestly it was so late what I posted this that I completely forgot that both pineapples already run OpenWrt. I mean its not like it says "with OpenWrt" in the ascii art that appear when you ssh into one... oh wait...
