  • Would I be right in saying you do not have access to the server AND the client?

  • If you are managing an ISP, you should inform your management that you have security issues and suggest they employ a security professional to secure the network. This is the first time I have heard of ANY ISP that does not have a dedicated security team although I have not dealt with small ISPs.

    I am not a lawyer.

    If there are no passwords on the systems, I seriously doubt you have any chance of proving who was responsible. There is a world of difference between suspecting and proving in a court of law.

    If the material was of an illegal nature you should call in the police. Failure to do so makes you and your company complicit. The more…[Read more]

    Hi Rance,

    What’s the availability of pentest/ VA tools under OSX like?

  • Like I said, post the algorithm.

  • Bogwitch replied to the topic Data Recovery…. in the forum Forensics 13 years, 10 months ago

    Since you have already overwritten the FAT (or equivalent) this will not be an easy recover. There will be very few tools that will help you here – if any.

    It will almost certainly require you to manually recover files from blocks. If your drive was heavily fragmented this will be incredibly time-consuming and very, very difficult.

    I would…[Read more]

    Aahh – serial troffer! At least it would all be re-downloadable.

    48gig would be about a dozen DVDs, half that if you use Dual Layer. Or one small portion of a new HDD. 🙂

    My CRITICAL data totals less than 10 gig. Customer info, reports, etc. Everything else is re-downloadable. The critical data is copied to three network locations and is backed…[Read more]

    Oh dear.
    A few questions. How much of an installation did you do? How much data do you have that is not recoverable from other sources, eg via installation, download etc.?
    How big is the HDD fitted? Did you install over an existing partition? Have you got a larger HDD you can image your corrupted HDD to? How much time have you got? 🙂 No backups?

  • Bogwitch replied to the topic Dual-boot madness in the forum Other 13 years, 10 months ago

    Oops! Misread the last few words.

    Happier to laugh at you knowing no data was lost.

    Will you be making backups?

    48gig of data? You’re a busy soul!

  • Bogwitch replied to the topic Dual-boot madness in the forum Other 13 years, 10 months ago

    You /did/ have backups, didn’t you? 😉

    Can I point at your .sig and laugh?

  • Bogwitch replied to the topic Windows vs Linux in the forum Other 13 years, 10 months ago

    Although it is a small sample group, the results seem pretty clear thus far.
    I would be interested to hear what flavours people are using.
    Personally, I use, in this order of percentage use, Win2000 workstation, Fedora (FC8), Slackware (11+12) and Windows 2000 server.
    My pentest platform is primarily FC8 with Win2k VM.
    Anyone else care to share?

  • Wow, you got a gentle reception in here. You have not come up with the latest and greatest crypto ever. You have not come up with crypto: it is, at best, obsfucation.
    If you want anyone to take your crypto seriously, post the algorithm. Post it to sci.crypt on Usenet. I would suggest reading sci.crypt achives before you do if you’ve never been…[Read more]

  • If you have specific questions, ask them but be warned: you’ll likely get specific answers – it is unlikely you will get a hand-hold without doing some background research first.
    Your example concerning hardware. That’s a pretty big subject right there. Do you have an example of a piece of hardware and exactly what you want to know about it? Do…[Read more]

    Dean,

    I agree with you that social engineering is a valid attack vector (and often the most effective).

    However, I think the initial comments (at the very least my own, but I thought others felt the same way) was that SE was something that wasn’t enjoyed. For myself this is largely a confidence issue, I’m not a ‘people…

    ??? If you had to have you ultimate computer, what brand and type would it be? (price is not a factor )
    Mine would be an Alienware laptop, with a core 2 duo and WinXP

    If price is not a factor, neither would be quantity. Not one computer would tick all the boxes.

  • I took my CISSP with Firebrand, my C|EH and also my C|HFI (although it was TrainingCamp at the time)
    The fact that I went back there twice already and plan to return for my ECSA/LPT (Just awaiting funding approval) should speak volumes.
    As long as you are comfortable with the bootcamp style, it will probably suit you. Don’t expect a party, expect a pass.

  • A bit convoluted, but here goes.
    You’ll have to cast your mind back several years.
    I created a file called ‘ver’, just like the old MS-DOS command, it printed the version string for MS-DOS 6.22 when ‘type ver’ was issued, so ‘type ver’ was placed into the autoexec.
    The file ALSO used ANSI commands to remap the ‘S’ and the ‘D’ keys, to swap them…[Read more]

  • Bogwitch replied to the topic my pc in the forum Other 13 years, 10 months ago

    shawal, you are correct, of course. The latest kernel source will probably compile for the older hardware. You must be aware that some functionality is removed from newer kernels that may be useful for older hardware.
    I suggested an older distro as the HDD and memory requirements tend to be smaller with the older distros, esp. when it comes to…[Read more]
