ARP spoofing A successful ARP spoofing (poisoning) attack allows an attacker to alter routing on a network, effectively allowing for a man-in-the-middle attack. ARP spoofing may allow an attacker to intercept data frames on a network, modify the traffic, or stop all traffic. Often the attack is used as an opening for other attacks, such as denial of service, man in the middle, or session hijacking attacks.[1] The attack can only be used on networks that use the Address Resolution Protocol, and is limited to local network segments.[2] ARP vulnerabilities[edit] The Address Resolution Protocol is a widely used communications protocol for resolving Internet layer addresses into link layer addresses.

Digital Encryption and Digital Signatures with GPG For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of digital signature and encryption, I hope this tutorial will provide some insight. It is designed to convey the concepts and plays a bit fast and loose with the specifics. (Follow the links for more details than you probably want.) This doesn't cover the specific commands needed to use GPG or PGP . The resources listed at the end of this document will get you into that.

Crack Windows Passwords Have you ever tried to log into a Windows computer for a few minutes and you finally realize that you forgot the password? There’s a way to crack the password and it doesn’t involve reformatting and reinstalling Windows. The solution is called @stake LC4 (formerly L0phtCrack), however since Symantec stopped development of L0phtcrack, I’m going to let you in on a program called LC5. Just like L0phtCrack, LC5 attacks your Windows machine with a combination of dictionary and brute force attacks. LC5 can crack almost all common passwords in seconds.

Anonymous: From the Lulz to Collective Action Taken as a whole, Anonymous resists straightforward definition as it is a name currently called into being to coordinate a range of disconnected actions, from trolling to political protests. Originally a name used to coordinate Internet pranks, in the winter of 2008 some wings of Anonymous also became political, focusing on protesting the abuses of the Church of Scientology. By September 2010 another distinct political arm emerged as Operation Payback and did so to protest the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and a few months later this arm shifted its energies to Wikileaks, as did much of the world's attention.

Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.)
