Recommended Posts

I am new switching from Windows to Ubuntu, I installed Wine and then Cain and it does not work :blink: so what would be an equal program to crack say a SHA1 encryption in Ubuntu? I just got John the ripper but its all command line stuff, any good tutorials that you can suggest?

How do I view all my ports? like In windows I could do a netstat -a or use a program called cports to view all traffic on my ports and terminate open ports when i wanted.. Also I am going to school and my next course will be a Visual basic course, can I make VB programs in Ubuntu? (without running windows in a Virtual machine, or useing wine?, they both seem to slow the system down)

and finally.. is Ubuntu easy to hack? say I am a noob linux user but advanced MS user with XP SP2.. which do you honestly think would be safer to run?

thanks

Cain requires WinPcap, amongst other windows libraries, using it for a local dumper, is pointless.

Check into other ARP poisoning tools like ettercap: http://openmaniak.com/ettercap_arp.php

Wireshark will view packets across the network: http://www.wireshark.org/

Youtube Ubuntu MITM, for info on that, or Ubuntu WEP cracking.

You can still use the netstat -a command, or run nmap.

VB in ubuntu: http://vb.wikia.com/wiki/Running_Visual_Ba...er_Ubuntu_Linux

Ubuntu has default settings that make it easy to hack.

Unsafe GRUB, sudo is not necessarily a great idea for some, just google around for info on that.

I appriciate your help. What can be done to secure Ubuntu besides installing chkrootkit?.. I just installed Wireshark, I used it on windows previously but never fully understood how to use the filters and such..thanks

Wireshark is not for securing anything. It's a packet sniffer for collecting data, that's it. That's probably why you had problems.

Start by checking out what services are set up to run. SSH, DHCP, Samba Server, disable everything you don't need.

Encrypt your swap, /home, whatever else you want, if you're serious about it.
