Just setup a non-networked PC with simple dialup access to a service provider. Install a simple personal firewall like BlackICE. Unplug the modem when the PC is not in use.

The first part of the key is a combination of the second and third part of the MAC, which is either 1801 or 1F90.

The second part of the key is this forumula.. hold on to your butts: The 5-character SSID name is a base-36 number of the lower 48 bits (6 hex digits) of the WEP key.

Back in October, Roelof Temmingh presented his new discovery method data mining tool Maltego. Maltego is available in two versions fee based (Maltego) and non fee based (community edition). I was in the United States Navy for almost 10 years. It is the dawning of a new era in network recon and that era is data correlation, but for now it is time for me to push play on "Johnny Dangerously"
