November 26th, 2010 I know it's been a while, but I'm reinstating my weekly blog post policy. This week will be about something I've wanted to write about for a while: School computers! They're just too easy to hack and do fun stuff with, especially because teachers are just so incompetent with technology sometimes.
You might be surprised to learn just how many people want to learn how to hack. The stereotype is that of the young college guy – a computer science major for sure – who spends his evenings and weekends writing up intricate hacking scripts to break into whatever computer system he can get his hands on.

BAD call suggesting opening up the VNC port on the router. VNC's traffic is by default NOT SECURE, meaning all usernames, passwords and other key-presses are sent clear-text. This isn't an issue if you're just using VNC on your own lan, (behind the security firewall of your router), but unless you don't care about your system, files, data or privacy... raw VNC should not be used by itself over the internet. If you want to properly secure the VNC traffic, a SSH server should be setup on the same system as the VNC server. Then you create a SSH connection to the server and tunnel your VNC connection through the encrypted SSH connection.
