  • Hm…re-reading that part of my post you quoted, I realize I wasn’t being 100% clear…..

    But yeah, Linksys/Cisco WiFi routers that are running DD-WRT/Tomato don’t run WPS code at all.

    Yeah, my next router (when I get the monies) is going to be the Asus RT-N66U 🙂 I am not sure if I want to run the stock firmware (which I believe is DD-WRT or…[Read more]

  • ajohnson, you are definitely right, but there was only one WiFi network around that might have been vulnerable, and that was the neighbors’ network. Like I explained, I did nothing when I got in, just looked to see if it was one of the ones that doesn’t turn WPS off, and then logged off.

  • I am really surprised this hasn’t caught more attention for such a huge vulnerability across the world.

    I mean, I have used Reaver when no one was home (got into a neighbors’ WiFi with it). Just looked around their router, saw it was an ISP-provided NetGear router.

    If I remember correctly, once I got the commands down, it took a matter a minutes…[Read more]

    Should I install all three apps you have suggested? Can I use your channel without Channel Caster?

    Cyber.spirit I was looking for good infosec news apps on Android, rather than tools to pentest or exploit things.

    Please don’t take offense to my comment earlier, I was just kinda surprised that you posted a bunch of stuff I didn’t ask for, but found interesting nonetheless! 🙂

    Cyber.spirit, I wasn’t really looking for security/pentest tools on Android, but those are good to know! And putting BackTrack on my phone?  😮

    So any suggestions for Twitter feeds to follow? I mean, since I have to create an account anyway, right?  ::) Any suggestions for an Android Twitter app, too? Is the official Twitter app any good?

    Oh snapples! I thought the ‘Lessons’ section was going to be an overview of the stuff they teach you, rather than the actual lessons.

    Guess I still have a bit to learn on the info-gathering! 😉

    No offense, but am older than high school age (nearly 26), so I don’t believe the HHS will work out for me, plus, there is almost no information on how/when/where theses ISECOM ‘events’ take place, their price, etc.

    It seemed interesting until I tried to find out if it was an online thing, or you had to go to an on-site training, or if it was…[Read more]

  • Putting the ‘suit required’ in the job description sounds a tad….childish? Not the word I’m thinking of, but you know.

    And I think the job requirements shouldn’t really include dress code, since every environment is different, and they might just copy/paste from another posting, or whatever.

    I think, if you know it’s a professional type place…[Read more]

  • Unfortunately (or fortunately in a few rare cases) having general knowledge of concepts in say, SQL, or the searching through Linux logs, is not usually enough for interviews.

    I’ve been to a number of them, through an IT contractor company, where the requirements they gave me didn’t quite match up with what the interviewer actually expected.

    I…[Read more]

    Cyber.spirit and chrisj thanks for the advice! I’ll look into many of these things soon!

    And I bought the basics of pentesting book because I don’t know how to do it, hence, I need the basics. I understand basic security concepts and abstracts, but have had little “in-the-field” experience with them.

    But PenTesting sounds like something I might…[Read more]

    SO THIS.

    Also, awesome piece of kit you’re giving away! 🙂

  • I agree that Hackers, while not a ‘good’ movie, was my gateway movie to hacking.

    Not that I’ve done a lot, to anything other than my own systems, but it got me interested, and I still am very interested. Mostly in something super-challenging and rewarding like PenTesting. I owe it all to Hackers.

    But, watching it now, in 2012, a lot of things in…[Read more]

    HM…Good point. I am currently A+ Certified, and I’ve taken the Net+ classes, but have not taken the test. Currently in Chapter 6 of the 2009 edition of the study guide, but at this point, it seems a tad much, just really boring (but necessary, I know!) stuff at the point I am in the book. Plus I know, in general, how TCP/IP works as it relates…[Read more]
