  1. phreaking is just really about learning and exploring... the "black hat" equivalent of phreaking for the sole purpose of stealing calls is pretty much a dead issue since calls cost practically nothing now... most of the text files that you are going find on line are going to be outdated... beige boxing is still relevant for POTS lines, but is basically theft of services if you are not connected to your own line... not many people have 900 Mhz cordless phones, especially not ones that do not have DSS... there are a few still out there, but you are not going to hear much conversations with a radio scanner... it really depends on what you are interested in learning.. do you want to learn how different PBX systems work? do you want to find interesting stuff connected to different phone lines, modems, test lines, recordings? i would recommend starting by doing some hand scans... pick an NPA-NXX and scan a bunch of numbers... most of the time interesting telephone company related stuff can be found in the 99xx range... when scanning block your CID to prevent call backs from people, but anything interesting might use ANI, so learning how to get around ANI would be something to learn up on... 800-444-4444 will read back your ANI 804-222-1111 has got some interesting stuff you can do - it reads back the name on the caller ID, as well as doing DMTF decoding and an echo test... I was kind of curious about the scanner thing...I first got into ham radio and scanning because of the PLA's pranks with the modified Yaesu radios at drive-thrus. I came for the havoc, but stayed because...well radio is really freaking sweet (listening to someone's cordless convo was always fun too). Anyways, as the 900 MHz phone users die/upgrade to the higher frequency phones, is listening to them still possible on radios equipped for the higher frequencies (IIRC the newer phone bands are close to the more experimental ham bands) or are they all encrypted now?
  2. I found backtrack (I think it's on a different domain now), and it looks more polished and more supportive of different chipsets than the last time I tried it (which was around version 2, I think, just for shits and giggles). I'm going to burn it in the next few minutes and give it a whirl. Thanks for all the resources, I'll see if I can do anything with Airopeek and I'll definitely be watching those videos. Thanks again guys!
  3. Do you have anymore info on the actual wireless chipset? And have a look at this compatibility list here It's an intel pro/wireless 3945ABG, I've installed the latest drivers and Wireshark works! So now I can capture, but it's been a while since I've read about MITM, ARP Poisoning/spoofing, etc. and I didn't understand much of it at the time, so do you know of any good resources to get me started with this and learn more about wireless security in general? Thanks
  4. Hi guys. A few years ago I tried (unsuccessfully) to learn a bit more about the various methods of wireless network sniffing. I currently have an Asus G1 laptop with an intel i945PM chipset (integrated centrino wifi), and because of this I was unable to use the different exploits available at the time. I was wondering if any of the programs (windows or linux) had found a workaround for support with this chipset (I believe it was an inability to enter promiscuous mode but I could be wrong) so I can start learning about it, as well as some good papers on the theory behind ARP poisoning and all that. Thanks!
  5. Through the PLA many many years ago. I came back today through a PLA link and am trying to become an active member here again.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm new here, somewhat, but had an account years ago. I'm finally getting back into programming, network security/admin, and overall hacking when I have time to do extra reading and all that. I'm finishing up my university studies in psychology and will be starting grad school in behavioral neuroscience in the fall. Growing up in various h/p communities, the hacking mindset has always been mine, and that has extended to the brain for me.
