Any way to properly introduce myself I am in NAIT currently taking the Computer network administrator course. doing good but during the course of this I got intrigued by a tool I downloaded. I never new what a IP scanner was and found a free one not nmap. it was a simple Gui one loaded with neat features. found all the systems on our 10.1.1.x lan in the class and looked at my neighbours machine. noticed a little option when I left clicked on it titled shutdown on lan. to my amazment when I clicked it the machine started to shutdown.
any way things escalated to there till I found Cain & abel installed it and proceeded to arp poison the class network. when I realized what it was doing I stopped. 4 minutes in I had someones msn and bank account info. I stopped deleted all traces of what I did and forgot what I seen.
that was last week. I am still in the school. (All schools would expell you for what I had done if detected) Anyway I have now since started to look for guidance. My course does not teach hacking in a sense and most of my classmates frown that I want to do this kinda stuff for a proffesion But I decide If one day I am going to be the senior admin of a Network I better understand what is flowing and to where it is flowing to and who is watching it.
I beleive these skills I am learning to be benificial to my IT career and anyone to say I am stupid for wanting to learn this is waiting to become a victim in the headlines of the papers and soon after jobless.
Anyway. thats my view. I would also like to know of some tools that can crack wep in windows. We learned very basic stuff of linux and I do net yet feel comfortable enough in it to do anything. so any tools that will work with my DWL g122 B1 adapter will be great. ( I am cracking my neighbours wep key for him. bet me 25 dollars I could not do it.)
