  1. i was doing a search and saw this site, it's got loads of useful links.
  2. who's eva? it would probably be better if you use their handle so we know who you're talking to, betty.
  3. here's a whole programme about Mentalism. he has lots of other stuff too in his videos.
  4. don't know if you want these or not? - this is the Bruce Schneier's Monthly Crypto-Gram Security Newsletter read out by some bloke
  5. that's two the debian one is good they love flame wars. i asked a question about ubuntu once on #debian lol.
  6. i get my linux magazines from the railway station near my house. the guy who owns the shop told me he made an administrator password for his XP box and now he can't get it to work! he's locked out! lol. a lot of the fixes involve booting from a CD/floppy, after making it, and i'm not sure he can do that, burning an iso and getting in to the BIOS and changing the boot process is fairly difficult i think. but, i did remember a way to reset the admin password using the windows cd. he told me he has his windows cd, with the hologram, and i just found the menthod i was thinking of, here - but, for some reason i think MS my have pushed out a fix to stop this repair, does anyone know if it will work? or, can anyone think of the easiest way for a noob to fix a forgotten admin pass? would you tell him to use the above method? thanks
  7. in the uk we have about 3 or 4 stories a week about lost data on discs and laptops atm, it's quite a good combination - the government stores as much data as possible then they go and sell/lose/give it away lol. 1000s of innocent people have their dna and fingerprints stored too, more than anywhere else i think. my pr0n is safer than the average uk government database, i can sleep better at least knowing that
  8. am i having deja-vu, or has he been missing before? i looked it up i was thinking of when he had a stroke and it was mentioned on the show. i hope he gets back ok.
  9. i was sure when i clicked on a link called "How to Become a Hacker" i'd end up reading something by Eric Raymond, but it looks like someone else has written about it too lol -
  10. here's the user guide - there are two books i know of about wireshark too - i'm not sure how good they are. /OT i just saw the book called Network Warrior, i might get that.
  11. lugradio did a segment on phorm etc. anyway, i heard the latest news on companies like phorm, NebuAd etc was all their shares fell and they were doing really, really badly. one of the CEOs left too. it looks like all the bad publicity they got did the job and their spyware won't be used.
  12. i think what you want to find out is how LANs work, you can lookup stuff like MAC addresses, ethernet ARP, packet collisions etc and then maybe look at the TCP/IP, learn how traceroute works, lookup the protocols, udp, icmp, tcp. if you keep reading about it all it will stick in the end, i'm not really in to hacking, i'd love to be a great white-hat hacker but it's not going to happen for a good few years because i watch too many films when i'm using the computer lol, i don't think i've learned anything for a few years now
  13. that's pretty cool, i didn't know you could extract the thumbs on linux. burberry
  14. results at jotti's A-Squared - Found nothing AntiVir - Found nothing ArcaVir - Found nothing Avast - Found nothing AVG Antivirus - Found nothing BitDefender - Found nothing ClamAV - Found nothing CPsecure - Found nothing Dr.Web - Found nothing F-Prot Antivirus - Found nothing F-Secure Anti-Virus - Found nothing Ikarus - Found nothing Kaspersky Anti-Virus - Found nothing NOD32 - Found nothing Norman Virus Control - Found nothing Panda Antivirus - Found nothing Sophos Antivirus - Found nothing VirusBuster - Found nothing VBA32 - Found nothing Found nothing with all the scanners! i looked at it in hexdump and strings and i think it's a Thumbs.db
  15. That was pure bullshit. The Thumbs.db.file had similar contents to a thumbs.db I just unzipped from my My Music folder. Its a dud. 7zip can unzip .db files. CONTENTS of DOWNLOADED FILE: 01, 1, 2, 3, 02. Etc. just little 2kb files just like the stock one in my My Music folder. i don't know why you're quoting my post saying "That was pure bullshit." :cry: lol smilies are so funny i haven't seen the file. are Thumbs.db all the same? you can just compare it to a normal one then i suppose, it might even have the same checksum. i'm totally clueless with a hex editor, but wouldn't it be obvious if it had some kind of packed executable in it??? i'll download it now and look blankly at it in a hex editor
  16. you can try scanning it at jotti's to see what comes up. and run it in a vm, you could try using something like processmon to see what happens, just lookup 'analysis malware' and you'll find a load of software you can use to monitor what happens. as long as you use a vm you'll be fine, you can just delete the vm afterward.
  17. i wouldn't use that browser it really sounds awful, there's no site by site config options, no way to turn off JS and a whole load of other things from what i've heard. but, someone might want to try this out?
  18. free for the next 11 hours only for a long time now friends of mine on another site have been running software from this site, i haven't been able to try anything they've given away because it's all windows stuff! i wish i could use the software they give away. i think normally you have to download and install the software during the give away day. MultiSet 6.1 Want to create a WindowsXP installation disk that will automatically install the OS Windows without asking questions about username, product key, time and locale settings? At the same time your favorite applications are automatically installed, the necessary keys are entered into the registry, drivers are updated, new patches (service packs) from Microsoft are installed. It’s possible and you can do it easily with Almeza MultiSet! Almeza MultiSet will automatically install all the applications you require, either onto your original computer or onto a new one. It’s an ideal solution for rebuilding your systems quickly! Besides, Almeza MultiSet can create bootable CDs/DVDs. Such disks can be used as a rescue means after a system crash. To completely restore the system, you will only have to insert such a disk into the CD/DVD drive.
  19. i was trying to see if i could find a comparison between MultiSet and nlite, i didn't see anything near the top of the search results but i saw these two links, someone may find them useful.
  20. i was wondering how it compared to nlite, nlite is so well known i just thought MultiSet must have something extra for them to charge for it?? anyway, if you haven't heard of giveawayoftheday before it's well worth subscribing to the rss feed
  21. wow, that's great, i'm sure all round the internet people have been blogging, twittering and whatever else people use nowadays, but i've completely missed it! lol. thanks for the post
  22. i just saw this on youtube, i haven't seen it yet. it's probably on google video too if you prefer that.
  23. have hackermedia stopped doing rss feeds? i get 404s for all of these ones on this page -
  24. thanks. i'd never use a rss client that automatically downloads everything, i subscribe to 100s of feeds, but download what i want to hear manually. i can see what droops means though. i was listening to a leo laporte podcast the other day, i think security now, and he said he only gives out something like the last 20 shows in his feeds rather then every show made, because if every subscribed rss client downloaded the information of every show his bandwidth costs (without even downloading the shows) would be far greater!!
  25. you can find out more if you search for 'web of trust' and 'key signing parties' lol
