    @Snubs, for xmas i got myself a shiny and new bladeRFx40.  YAY!   Knowing your love for all things SDR, I wanted to share  with you a synopsis of my adventures with the bladeRF.  I have set up a raspberryPi with YateBTS and gps-sdr-sim: https://github.com/osqzss/gps-sdr-sim

    I am now able to run my own GSM BTS or spoof a GPS satellite that tells nearby devices they are actually at the Kremlin.. fun. 

    YateBTS obviously really caught my interest as i quickly discovered after buying a pack of $1 sim cards a best buy and putting them in a couple of unlocked devices, I was able to get the ATT cards to automatically connect to my BTS using MCC:310 and MNC:410 in combination to make my BTS appear to be an ATT tower.  (no worries, as i did this in a  lead box to prevent my signal from leaking to the real world, wouldn't want to go to interfere with the outside world)  I was also able to get T-mobile cards to connect by manually forcing them, but i suppose i could find the MCC and MNC for them as well and get an auto connect. 

    Anyway, YATES is set up to automatically send a greeting SMS to phones that connect, of which i of course  altered to say "Emergency Alert: Someone has farted"  But it got me thinking, if someone like me with little to no real knowledge around RF was able to do this for under $500 and a 12 hour investiment, why is GSM still being used.  seems like anyone could build an IMSI catcher or stingray.   One could potentially go into a public venue with bad cell reception and start sending "greeting messages" to all the GSM phones with roaming enabled, creating a localized histeria of "wait, who farted?!?"   Now of course my curious mind is wondering how secure the Emergency Broadcast system is as well?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_Broadcast

    I would love to see you do a segment on this..


  3. Here's Viss's Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RavenholmSpices I'm a fan. I put mine on tacos, in spaghetti sauce, basically anything that needs a kick. I keep a container of spices on my keychain - it's a necessity.
  4. The current state is unknown, however with the correct sixth sense, you have the ability to know the full truths.
  5. All of our episodes are posted on the Youtube channel: youtube.com/hak5, immediately when available for release. The RSS is currently up and down, so I'd suggest subscribing on Youtube to get them as soon as they release.
  6. Hmmm... I know several folks who have been working on similar things such as checking out keyfob frequencies, however I think they change everytime so it'd be hard to decrypt. Dragorn did this which looks pretty cool: http://blog.kismetwireless.net/2013/08/playing-with-hackrf-keyfobs.html
  7. Sorry to say but I agree with most of you lot :P When you're using company equipment / on the clock I just assume you're being watched. Hell, back in the day when I was full-time at a bank as a CSR, I know I was being watched because they eventually blocked my access to the H5 website.
  8. Hello to all of our new forum members! Thanks for joining :)
  9. I feel sorry for this guy. I haven't seen his YT videos but it sounds like his vids are pretty similar to what we do. I hope he's able to resolve the issue with Youtube!
  10. I found tweezers to be best as well. I hope you enjoy the ducky!!
  11. Yup, I was curious about it too, so I interviewed Steve Gibson on Tekzilla. It's a pretty cool tool, but it's pricey.
  12. Cooper, sorry, but I HAVE actually had some hands on experience with that one and reviewed that one. I personally enjoyed it use, and it's matches robertrust's criteria, other than the price. It run games well enough for amateur use (not for a serious gamer), and works for general schoolwork. Yes it's missing a couple of ports, but those can be implemented with a USB hub. The hinge is tight and isn't an issue, and the battery lasts over 5 hours, which I consider low compared to a MBA or S7. Not to mention Dell also has excellent customer service from my personal experience. Honestly, I'm not sure I could provide a worthy recommendation unless I've actually used the product in question, which is why I recommended that XPS 13. I would recommend something like my Acer S7, but that's way too expensive, unless you purchase an older model. Robertrust, I hope you find a good laptop that meets your needs. LMK what you choose. :)
  13. Other than the fact that the story is incredibly sexist (like... I know a few marketing chicks who actually do know a thing or two about programming, so you never know...) I've been doing something similar for consumer freebies. :) There's a site called PinchMe that gives you free consumer goods for your reviews. Just put in a work address and your fake email and you're good. They don't pay you but you do get freebies in the mail, with little effort.
