To start there are some prerequisites you need to download in order to do this effectively. Download Stackless Python 2.5.2
Download win32 by Mark hammond
Should then work by running python NetworkOSwatching.py from command line. In order to run this from Binary
please make sure you have Windows Vista with SP1 Some problems have been reported running on XP SP2.
If you would like to compile a binary for XP that would be appreciated to
This is a server written in Python
 Connect via Putty on target computer using Raw connection port 8888. Example “127.0.0.1″ 8888 Raw
 After successful connection enter command “START” With out the quotes
 Watch for recursive file system changes
This app uses stackless for threads
Here is a binary and source download…
To change top level directory modify
path_to_watch = “C:\\”
to anything you choose
path_to_watch = os.getcwd()
I recently lot my Windows Vista after installing Service Pack 1. I had a Ubuntu Install, so I didn’t totally lose my computer, but I decided that I since I was dual booting, I would need to reinstall something. While Ubuntu Heron took a day for me to download on a DSL modem with Windstream in Georgia, it only took me exactly one hour to install download Linux Mint on a CD with Cox Cable Internet.
I’ve been without Windows for five days. I have further internet functionality. I’m able to use Flash v.9 without the problems that Ubuntu gave me during the installs of it. The package manager is brilliant. It came with a steampunk style background (one of my favorite themes). I was able to listen to Limewire downloaded CDs without the errors given with Ubuntu.
I love living without Microsoft. And the increased satisfaction of a fully open sourced OS PC is great. (My other lappy is a Eee with Linux).
Now, if I could only live my life never going into a Wal-Mart or a McDonald’s. lol
Actually, despite my catchy title, the pirates were fairly civil and forward about their responses.
The story: Cliff Harris of Positech Games asked the app cracker community why they crack games and put them in the wild.
The update: One articulated version of the most popular answer can be summed up this way: Save money on those stupid DRM addons, thereby lowering the price of your game and un-crippling it in the same stroke. The developer who asked, decided to take that advice.
It’s a heart warming story – no, seriously – of changing the conversation between business and the rest of us. So, here’s that link juice for Ars Technica, as if they needed it.
You can install Ventrilo under Wine very easily in Ubuntu Linux 8.04. I did it and got it working in well under an hour. Here is how you can accomplish such a feat. so you can join your friends on a Vent server whilst gaming or whatever else you may use Ventrilo for.
First : Make sure you have the newest version of Wine setup and installed.
Second : Download Ventrilo for Windows (Here) and install it under Wine.
Third : Now Vent at default requires the use of an audio codec called GSM 6.10, and from my own experience this codec/driver is not included in WINE right of the bat, so youll have to get the file msgsm32.acm (here) and place this file in your system directory under Windows in WINE (you may also try putting it in system32 which is fine, i actually put in both spots to be sure).
Forth : goto the Windows directory (should be /home/.wine/drive_c/windows) and open the file named system.ini and place this line in it under the drivers32 section (for organization sake)
ok now you may not have to, but I restarted my computer
Voila! You should now have Vent working, now you may get some errors, but they shouldnt hinder your use to voice chat, as well I have found out and it may only be on my computer and not others but Overlays wouldnt work, but i think it was hardware issue, youll just have to try it out yourself! I hope this helps any of you having trouble with getting this working, also make sure to keep an eye out, the guys who develop Vent are working on a Linux client! Enjoy.
Hello I don’t know how many of you are familiar with scapy (see http://www.secdev.org/projects/scapy/) There is a windows port which Zack Payton Dirk Loss and others had done
Today I am bringing WifiZoo to Windows using the Scapy Windows Port.
What is Wifizoo you ask? Taken from their website here is a description.
WifiZoo is a tool to gather wifi information passively. I wanted to do something wifi-related somewhat helpful in wifi pentesting and I did this to have fun after I discovered ‘Ferret’ from Errata Security. I know neither Ferret or WifiZoo do anything spectacular, but I thought that the idea was fun/useful anyways.
I basically wanted something that I could run, by itself, to get info from open wifi networks (and possibly encrypted ones in the future, at least with WEP ) without joining any network, and covering all wifi channels, and this is what I came up with so far. Its written in python, I can modify it easily, and it fulfills a not-very-ambitious purpose. Kudos to scapy for doing pretty much all the packet parsing for me (scapy is great).
Ok now onto the source Imagery and links
The source was pretty straight forward to change I won’t explain my secrets
but here it is running on eth0
import thing here is to “cd” to the directory where wifizoo.py is located this is important for viewing the wifizoo web interface as I found out ( at least on my system it would not dipslay unless running from the same directory )
Like I said this is still beta and working out the bugs so I won’t post the source today
here is the web interface
Ok I will explain what I have changed in the source so far to make this work
- import curses.ascii
+ #import curses.ascii
- import curses.ascii
+ #import curses.ascii
- if curses.ascii.isctrl(c):
+ #if curses.ascii.isctrl(c):
+ if ord(c) >= 0 and ord(c) <=31:
- import curses.ascii
+ #import curses.ascii
also changing conf.eth = “auth0s” # or whatever to your intreface
anyway thats not to exciting and its not 100 % yet we will see if it succeeds
If you have a PDA phone that runs Windows Mobile 5 or better and looking for something different, this program is for you. It’s a total conversion interface that mimics the iPhone just enough to look really cool but not so much to make you feel like you’re holding the K-Mart of cellphones.
This video pretty much sums it up, I think this dude doesn’t really know what he’s doing though, because you can change the scrolling settings that he’s complaining about, plus you can get rid of the dumbassed looking analog clock and make it into a sweet looking digital one. Oh, on a side note, who the hell would want to buy a book called “How to do Everything with your iPhone“? Sounds great, I’m totally gonna buy a book written by just some guy about how to use my cell phone better….
Anyways, I use it on my phone and I think it’s really neat. I have a PPC-6700 from Sprint, it’s an old phone but it runs this interface flawlessly.
One major bug I noticed was on February 29th the clock didn’t function…. but I doubt that I’ll even have this phone in another 4 years so it’s no biggie.
Another complaint I have is you don’t get to use a wallpaper or change the color schemes (other than when you first download it, you can pick between blue and black, needless to say, the black looks way more sleek and streamlined..it’s what I use).
I’m pretty sure they’ll fix all that in the next release…hopefully…
The internet is home to a staggering amount of information, a colossal number both in terms of diversity and physical number of different categories covered. Think of a giant, virtual library, with websites from each different section of the library, and search engines as the ever faithful librarian. When you use a search engine, whichever it may be, the process on our part is rather simple, and this simplicity belies the complex algorithms involved.
Whatever you enter into the search engine bar, the search engine makes use of a series of web crawling programs called spiders that will search through the databases looking for any and all relevant matches for your “question”, that is, the value you have entered. These results are then displayed, and you will notice that they are returned in order, with (for some curious reason) a few lines of text, with certain words, or phrases emboldened (in solid black). The returned values from the search engine, that contain these words/phrases embolden will match either fully or partially the value you entered into the search engine. What this means therefore, is that the user can see at a glance the websites that are most relevant (or most likely to be) and choose them accordingly.
All of this fine…but one crucial question remains. How does the search engine determine this list, and what is deemed to be the “most relevant site”? SEO: search engine optimization is the means used to optimize the efficiency of a site, so that the ranking it has on a search engine is higher, thereby meaning that more people will be likely to visit it. Typically, the more popular a site, then the greater number of sales, and or increased advertising revenue.
Traffic in the context of the internet means very simply the number of visitors to any given website. Even if your site is not sales based, or you don’t make use of advertising, your webpage is still valued (should you ever choose to sell it) based on several factors key of which is the amount of traffic you get be it daily/weekly/monthly.
So….how to actually lure people to your site? Well, given the astronomical numbers of websites on the internet, you are facing some pretty stiff competition, if you want to get an increased level traffic. As with most if not all of the internet sub-culture, there are two very broad categories in relation to SEO:
Protech One is a new security and pen testing linux distribution based off Ubuntu/Debian. Recently I have downloaded the Protech One .iso from their home site http://techm4sters.org/ to take a peek into the distribution. Well I don’t dislike it, booting from the live CD was easy and seems like it is pretty lightweight. The desktop GUI is Fluxbox, which to be completely honest I don’t really like using, I prefer KDE or GNOME. Looking over some of the pre-installed applications, it seems to have a decent included set.
I think this distro has a very good chance at being more than what it is. If your a Linux user you know that customizing an installation of Linux to your liking is the best way to go, however using lightweight pre-made versions are awesome when it comes to mobility, security, and lightweight usage. When I try out a security suite like this I always have the urge to compare it with Backtrack. I try not to, but I’ve grown so used to using it and being very happy with it. Run Protech One with GNOME though, and you just might win my heart…that is if I’m not in the mood for terminal.
So far so good though techm4sters, keep up the good work!
