  1. I suggest you take a look at the difference between compiled and interpreted languages. C++ is a compiled language, so what you write is converted into a machine understandable form. If you are looking to exploit any kind of programmed computing device you need to know much more than just C++. For a computer, it would probably be x86 assembly language. For a portable device it will be another variant of asm dependant on the device. The fact you are asking if you can run windows on a DS suggests you do not understand much about computer architectures. I would recommend a book called structured computer organisation as a good starting point (assuming you have some basic computer knowledge). The rest of your questions kinda lead on from there, so I will leave it here. Hope this helps.
  2. Kismet on Ubuntu keeps it's config files in "/etc/kismet". Hope this helps.
  3. Maker Faire is in Austin tx on October 18-19.
  4. The main thing of any interest on open wifi networks is shared folders. Some machines have things like My Documents open to the world. If this is the case, you can browse them as if they belonged to you. If you happen to have some kind of customer list saved in there then it is open to anyone. This is normally how people get that kind of information. There are other, more involved, ways that may be available, but in 90% of cases it is probably a shared My Documents and an excel spreadsheet of customers. Edit: Shared printers can be...interesting as well
  5. It is definitely possible to copy the magstrip on the card, and getting the pin is quite trivial in comparison. Once you have them, you would need a cash point that won't check the chip on the card. Copying the chip would be more problematic. As I understand it chip and pin uses a challenge along with a link to the bank to check if the card is genuine. Check the below links for details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chip_and_PIN http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMV http://www.lightbluetouchpaper.org/2008/02...simple-attacks/ The other thing to consider is that all you need to use the card online or over the phone can be gotten in the space of about 10 seconds using a mobile with a camera by taking photos of both sides. If your friend has ever given the card to a waiter in a restaurant who has taken it out back to get the pin pad then brought it back then that may be where it has been done from.
  6. I'm sure you have thought about it, but you might want to avoid keeping images. I would guess that as tor is almost untraceable people would use it to access illegal content (i.e. child porn). Possibly not the best stuff to have ono your server. Especially if that machine was used to access it.
  7. The current release is supposedly the developer one. There is meant to be a later release around October that will have some more features including wifi. I think they are calling it the GTA02 (the one just out is GTA01).
  8. Is that a static IP? I just tried to get to your site via the IP and had no luck. If it is a static IP then surely you could pay all of about $10 a year or whatever it is to get a proper DNS entry aimed at it. If it is a dynamic one, then what you are trying will not work as the IP will change. If it is dynamic (which I suspect it is) then you will need a service like dyndns to have any kind of accessability to it. This is all assuming that your ISP doesn't block port 80 on your connection.
  9. The easiest way I found to start off with was cluster knoppix. Though as others have said, it is not as simple as just linking them to have a single big machine. For things like computing rainbow tables or ray tracing they can be quite usefull, just purely becuase the calculations can be done independantly and do not rely on the results of anything else.
  10. In about:config, change the value of general.autoscroll to true. This was bugging me for a while so I looked it up a couple of weeks back.
  11. They probably replaced it with a shh client They don't seem to have. The few times I have tried vista I have found the lack of Telnet or SSH a major irritation.
  12. It is quite likely that bit torrent will be blocked completely (It is here, sucks for getting a Linux distro). The best way around that would probably be a ssh tunnel to your home computer or a paid shell account. One thing you might want to keep an eye/ear out for is a campus dc++ network. Our network admins stop it at the firewall, but don't do anything about an internal private network. If your network admins see you constantly ssh tunneling out though, expect an email asking about why you need to do it. If they watch that tightly then you stand very little chance of file sharing.
  13. E-Bay has some, you might need to look a bit, but they are there for about £10. Make sure they will fit your radio though. Most motorolas seem to have a standard size plug, but I don't know if others will fit.
  14. Maybe take a look at digital multiplexers, they might do what you are after.
  15. To add to that, I am quite cynical about the value of any book containing the word hacking in the title. 90% of the ones I have seen are mostly vendor specific junk, with very little general content and a high price tag. If you learn from other sources to do things like program and disassemble and learn to recognise bugs and bad behaviour in apps, then you will have very little use for them. Just my £0.02
  16. Have you checked the obvious? Have the passwords been saved on any of the pcs? And have you tried the default? I believe that on that model it is user:admin, pass:password
  17. Only by accessing the router yourself, which means that you need the password in the first place. I'm guessing that you don't have the password and want to try and sniff it when the admin logs on.
  18. I don't know any perl, but I do know that it is possible. If perl's network abilities are anything like ruby's then it shouldn't be too hard for you to hack something together. Here is a good place to look first, or you could look at the RFC for SMTP.
  19. A quick google finds this I'm sure at least one of those would cover your needs.
  20. jabzor's link is good, I would also advise learning a little about the OSI model. It does make things make a lot more sense when you can slot them into it. The CCNA stuff is very good if you can afford it, just be aware that the later stuff does tend to focus in more on their hardware. As for the reccomendation to try linux, I would suggest you keep a copy of whatever you are most comfortable with for networking at first. That way, you only need to worry about one thing at a time.
  21. <div style="display:none"> Should make a chunk vanish. Dunno how much tho.
  22. Check out 'Programming from the ground up' I found it to be quite a good starter book for asm. A word of warning though, asm is hard to get into, don't expect instant results. I would recommend you get the hang of something easier like ruby or even C before you even attempt it. If you can't find it, PM me and I can send you a copy (no, it isn't illegal, it's available under the GNU Free Documentation License).
  23. If you want good books for programming, but don't want to spend too much, I would recommend these: Programming from the Ground up. Good for the basics of computer architecture and if you want to start programming assembler. Possibly a bit beyond you, but nothing wrong with aiming high. Just gets you to improve. How to think like a Computer Scientist. Good fo learning how to program. It has 3 editions, Java, Python and C++. A good book if you are starting out. If you are willing to spend out a little then Structured Computer Organisation is a good one for computer architecture, very clear and easy to read. Hope this helps you out.
  24. I remember the article you are talking about. Didn't just about everybody who found a stick plug it in? It was an insane percentage of the sticks phoned home because they had been plugged in. I think the sticks had a backdoor on them didn't they?
  25. If you want to try your hand at microcontroller programming, most of the companies do free samples. Look around and you should be able to get one or two freebies, You will still need to make a programming board to plug into your computer, but you can probably scrounge parts for that if you want to do it one the cheap. And systems_glitch, nice tip on the desoldering there, I'm gonna have to try that one out for components.
