How to Hack Into a School Computer

Hack any paid WiFi hotspot in about 30 seconds (The above video was banned from YouTube on 9/12/2014 and hence has been re-uploaded to Vimeo. No explanation for the ban was given. The original YouTube video identifier was: Agodg3dmwaQ ). Or rather, DON'T hack any paid WiFi hotspots, as that would be bad... Also, don't turn your WiFi card off and then back on again after the hack to rectify any MAC address conflicts that might arise. The commands are: ifconfig en1 | grep ether arp -a sudo ifconfig en1 ether [mac address to spoof] Note that the term "MAC address" has nothing to do with Macintosh computers.

I hacked my secure wireless network: here’s how it’s done Wireless networks are everywhere; they are widely available, cheap, and easy to setup. To avoid the hassle of setting up a wired network in my own home, I chose to go wireless. After a day of enjoying this wireless freedom, I began thinking about security. How secure is my wireless network? I searched the Internet for many days, reading articles, gathering information, and participating on message boards and forums. I soon came to the realization that the best way for me to understand the security of my wireless network would be to test it myself. How a wireless network works A wireless local area network (WLAN) is the linking of 2 or more computers with Network Interface Cards (NICs) through a technology based on radio waves. Access points are base stations for the wireless network. The set of all stations that communicate with each other is referred to as the Basic Service Set (BSS). Data streams, known as packets, are sent between the Access Point, and it’s clients. Packets and IVs

Hacking CCTV Security Video Surveil... From our guest blogger and Metasploit community contributor Justin Cacak at Gotham Digital Science. A new module for the Metasploit Framework, cctv_dvr_login, discovers and tests the security of standalone CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) video surveillance systems. Such systems are frequently deployed in retail stores, living communities, personal residences, and business environments as part of their physical security program. However, many of these systems are vulnerable to exploitation that can allow attackers remote access. Such remote access, enabled by default, can allow not only the ability to view real-time video, but control of the cameras (if supported), and provide access to archived footage. Most owners of CCTV video surveillance systems may not even be fully aware of the device's remote access capabilities as monitoring may be conducted exclusively via the local video console. The new CCTV module is already available in the Metasploit Framework.

Real-life exploitation of XSS vulnerabilities Successful exploitation of a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability does not end at <script>alert('xss')</script>. Showing the real risk of a vulnerability is very important during a penetration testing engagement. It helps the client to better understand the real impact of the problem and makes him fix the problem as soon as possible. In this post we show you a method to prove your clients the real risk of an XSS vulnerability that you find in the target applications. We will use the XSS Server tool to perform the following actions on a victim user: steal cookies (if they are not httpOnly)retrieve the current page that the victim sees (as the victim user)retrieve a custom page of the vulnerable site (as the victim user)get the current URL of the victimget the current referrer of the victim We demonstrate this attack on a deliberately vulnerable banking application: Step 1 – Find a vulnerability in your target application Step 2 – Prepare a unique xss script Conclusions
