Our assignment was to pick a tool that we had not yet gone over in class and demonstrate intrusion detection tools configuration and hacking exploits, and no two students were to pick the same tool. The project was designed to provide us an opportunity to research and study security related technology.
I chose Metasploit framework because i had never worked with it, and it was available on both Mac and PC. I told him I wanted to attempt cross-platform hacking. I got permission from my boyfriend to hack into his PC from my Mac, and to use his computer to hack into mine, and then I was permitted to use this tool. This is my midterm for my final semester as a Computer Forensics student, and this is 30% of my final grade, so I very much need to get it to work. I had emailed my professor about the PC issues on Saturday, and the Mac issues on Sunday, and I have not gotten a response from either email.
My biggest issue is I am researching a lot of stuff about MSF, but so many of the tutorials and examples are using sql injections, viruses, and trojans. My goal is to be a whitehat hacker, so I really don't want to mess with this. And if we do anything illegal, I will also be in hot water at school.
My biggest concern when researching all of this is not to infect either computer.
So the gist of the assignment is researching different tools, but a equipment is we MUST get the tool to work.
I am not sure what sites I can go on for a simple tutorial that will get the icamera to work, or pop up a message or something. I was researching Pic the Vic, because it seemed harmless enough, but I have only found articles talking about it's existance, nothing that tells you HOW to do it! Even on MS's site, they have the camera bit, and I have gotten the commands to work (i think. there were no errors), but I can't get the actual image to appear. I even tried pinging, so I know it can reach the computer, and I turned off the firewalls on both computers just to be sure that wasn't going to be an issue.
