  1. Haha! I can agree Scratchy. But when talking simplicity, elegant, and easy: binary and assembly were not the best jargon to throw out. My subnet routers are 5.0.10.1 and 192.168.157.1. No tricks to remembering that. Localhost in IPV6 is easy: ::1 EDIT: as far as easier to remember, I was talking about just looking at logs and NOT needing writing stuff down for meetings etc... Boss: what was that I.P. address that kept showing up in the loge three days ago? I.T. Guy: 192.145.66.84 I mean, I can remember IPV4 pretty well. I can still remember some of my home IP addresses from years ago after just looking at them once or twice.
  2. Shit! Should I change my banking / Facebook password now? :-( I once put some fake forums on my signature for myspace forums, . So many people would try to register into the forums with the same email address and password they used for myspace. I just copied a screenshot of another forum (not BinRev) and put in a link tag. Then when they'd click anywhere on the image - it would bring up the registration page and ask them to sign up. Then write the password and email address in a text file after they "registered". Never did anything evil -- just a learning security experiment. :-)
  3. Yep. Length with a number(s) upper and lower cases, and an uncommon special character(s). **$M@king_P@$$w0rds_is_s0_much_fuN$** EDIT: always change the letters so no clever haxor can use them in a random generator mixing words with specail chars in a defined pattern. Like using advanced rules with JTR. I'ive broken a lot of otherwise secure passwords like that.. I'm gonna try looking for my old john.pot file and posting it. :-)
  4. I get IP6 connectivity -- or so I think. When using Bittorrent to find IP ranges to have "fun" with, I need to filter out the IPv6. The only thing that scares me about IPv6 is memorizing them. I have conditioned my brain to memorize IPv4 and MAC addresses. But remembering FE80:80E0:01EE:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 is pushing shit at my age. :-(
  5. IPV4 exhaustion. and the Internet of "thingy ma-bobbers". We can put a shit-ton of crap on the Interwebz for people to hack and put malware on now -- even U.S. military airplanes. :-/ I keep saying I'm gonna put my home network on IPV6. Been saying that for about three four years now and its lost its leetness by now. But no, not Comcast where I live.
  6. ceh

    The forums are great for asking those types questions. I'd also advise searching the forums. I've been on since 2007 and know a lot of that stuff has already been asked in here too. Good luck with certs, and ask away. Really the only rules you can break is to post warez or something blatantly illegal here. Reading this might help: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php/topic/37282-intent-is-important/
  7. Email Facebook. They will ask for a picture ID, and ask a few questions about some stuff that is not public on your facebook.
  8. If the NSA, FBI, CIA; or any three letter agency wanted to track you, they'd probably resort installing something on your system like "magic lantern" or whatever they called it back in the 90's. More than likely intercepting traffic at your ISP and putting it in a "special" Windows Update so you'd never suspect anything. Just use a VPN service. EDIT: VPN service and ghostery or an HTTP proxy to obfuscate HTTP requests.
  9. Spent the last hour and counting trying to download Cain & Abel. When I turn Windwos Defender off, that means I don't want it blocking crap!

  10. Who the crap ships notebooks with a synaptics touch pad, using generic Microsoft drivers! Oh... Dell does. WTF?

      Nope. The XPS 13 is really nice. However, not trackpad driver is like buying a car with a flawed wheel. No matter how bad-ass it is, one cannot drive it to work if the wheel is square. LoL

  11. Facebook did show logs for unregistered logins. I'm not seeing that any longer. However, you can tune security settings to alert you. 1) Check login notifications. 2) Login approvals 3) De-register EVERY "trusted" or known device/browser. After that, it will alert you via text and email the next time anyone logs into your facebook. Be sure to delete EVERY known and trusted device or the intruder can just detective your security settings if they put themselves as trusted.
  12. I love it when my computer calls me Batman! Go, go Cortana and Windows 10!

  13. Really liking Brackets code editor (www.brackets.io). I'm sure in a less than a year it will put in "the cloud" and do everything under the sun except be a nice clean, efficient code editor - losing its focus. But for right now, it's pretty damn nice, IMO.

  14. Wouldn't know. Not too interested in the phone networks in every town I visit. LoL
  15. 20 May 2015: Posts split from http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php/topic/47251-minidisc-is-awesome/ follow.-scratchy I love the Dalles. One of my favorite cities in the world. Not that I've spent much time there. But my cross-coutry trips to Seattle were getting pretty routine for a while: get pulled over for speeding in Pendleton, stop and the night in The Dalles and eat dinner and a drink beers at the tavern with the local folk and wind-surfers. Nice little town, IMO.
  16. Driving 50 miles to see Blackhat the day after tomorrow. Expecting to be disappointed, but we'll see. :-)

  17. When you wake up in the middle of the night, and she's 6 inches from your face staring at you. #creepyChicks

      no channel. Even though there are no tags, I tagged to give it topic. I'm rebelling against all this unstandardized stuff.

      Awesome! :-)

  18. High. If in question, turn it all the up. Process? the process where where the gate is switched and power went through the FSB. IT was just a milli-second flame. Wish I had a camera rolling though. way*
  19. I accidentally set the voltage WAY to high while overlocking once. I saw smoke and about a six in flame, followed by that expensive smell. It just fried the FSB. Luckily my CPU, RAM, and video cards were unscathed. *six inch
  20. Since the Supreme Court ruled police are not obligated to protect citizens, can I sue the local police for false advertising? The cars say, "to protect and serve".

      Police are funny: they go Rodney King and shoot people. Then say, "if they aren't guilty of something, wouldn't run from us".

      I'll also add, the Mafia is simpler. You just pay them for "protection". No racial bias, etc... At least with the Mafia one knows what's expected of them. LoL

      I grew up in Seattle. I had a cop pul their knight-stick on me for jay-walking once. I crossed the street, then she pointed at me, then pointed to go back. I winked at her, and she grabbed her battan. I was hoping for handcuffs. but hey....

  21. From the 2, beastmode on at RB..... WTF? Seattle? Sorry... Billy B won the chess match. :-(

  22. Argh! Visual Studio 2012 in a V.M. on a laptop w/ on y4GB of memory is not fun. :-(

  23. Kind of like WEP -vs- WPA / WPA2? The same "shared secret" is used to produce a different key for each client. Perhaps I used the incorrect terminology? I thought "pre-shared key" and "shared secret" were used interchangeably? My bad. Maybe I'm out in left field.
  24. I don't know a lot about encryption. I always thought public / private key (asymmetric) encryption was just used in instances where it was impossible or not practical to coordinate a pre-shared key? Like exchanging SSL session keys. Or sending a "message.txt" where the receiver is known, but might not be expecting it or chances are great coordinating the pre-shared key could be a liability. A good case (but poor example, based on what msparks pointed out) might be Snowden sending texts to a reporter? Where he was using a secure operating system, but anything on the Interwebz might be unknown. EDIT: or to digitally sign something.
