How to Crack a Wi-Fi Network's WEP Password with BackTrack

How to Crack a Wi-Fi Network's WEP Password with BackTrack
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. I did check the publication date on this piece, because - no sarcasm intended - I thought something bubbled up from 2005. WEP cracking can be done much more easily than this, even. Kismet and Kismac both crack WEP with less effort. The point is that WEP, since about 2003, has been useful only as a no-trespassing sign. Now WPA, despite some reports of cracks, is still considered uncracked - there's one exploit that requires some careful timing, doesn't reveal the key, and only works on very short packets. Flagged @Glenn Fleishman: Yep re: this bubbling up from 2005—like I said, this is not news. I like the description of WEP as a "no trespassing" sign more than anything else.

Storing Hierarchical Data in a Database, Part 2 Now, let’s have a look at another method for storing trees. Recursion can be slow, so we would rather not use a recursive function. We’d also like to minimize the number of database queries. Wireless Tips – Does Your Wireless Router Keep Disconnecting or Dropping the Connection? I’ve had a Netgear wireless router for about a year now and it’s been pretty good until a couple of weeks back all of sudden my wireless connection kept dropping or I could not connect to the router unless I restarted the router! It was a royal pain in the butt, but because I’m lazy I didn’t get around to fixing it earlier! If you’re in the same situation, here’s what you can do to fix the problem! The issue is usually caused by one of two things: the driver for your wireless card or the firmware version on your router (basically the driver for the router). I have found that unless you’re using a really old wireless router, it’s more than likely an old driver for your wireless card that is the culprit. So you have to update the wireless card.

Researchers crack the world’s toughest encryption by listening to the tiny sounds made by your computer’s CPU Security researchers have successfully broken one of the most secure encryption algorithms, 4096-bit RSA, by listening — yes, with a microphone — to a computer as it decrypts some encrypted data. The attack is fairly simple and can be carried out with rudimentary hardware. The repercussions for the average computer user are minimal, but if you’re a secret agent, power user, or some other kind of encryption-using miscreant, you may want to reach for the Rammstein when decrypting your data. This acoustic cryptanalysis, carried out by Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir (who co-invented RSA), and Eran Tromer, uses what’s known as a side channel attack. A side channel is an attack vector that is non-direct and unconventional, and thus hasn’t been properly secured.

6 Ways to Keep Your Search Secrets Safe It’s sad to say but many recent events (Google Search Subpoena, AOL’s BIG Mistake, etc) make it very clear that online your privates are not private anymore.
