aircrack-ng Description Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA/WPA2-PSK key cracking program. Aircrack-ng can recover the WEP key once enough encrypted packets have been captured with airodump-ng. This part of the aircrack-ng suite determines the WEP key using two fundamental methods. The first method is via the PTW approach (Pyshkin, Tews, Weinmann). The default cracking method is PTW. Additionally, the program offers a dictionary method for determining the WEP key. For cracking WPA/WPA2 pre-shared keys, only a dictionary method is used. Screenshot LEGEND 1 = Keybyte 2 = Depth of current key search 3 = Byte the IVs leaked 4 = Votes indicating this is correct How does it work? The first method is the PTW method (Pychkine, Tews, Weinmann). The second method is the FMS/Korek method which incorporates multiple techniques.

This code can hack nearly 90 percent of credit card readers in circulation This is a facepalm moment for the credit card issues and retailers. Nearly all credit card readers in United States are still using the default password which can be easily hacked into by cyber criminals. The passcode, set by default on credit card machines since 1990, has been exposed for so long there’s no sense in trying to hide it. It’s either 166816 or Z66816, depending on the machine. Using either of the two passwords, an attacker can gain complete control of a store’s credit card readers, potentially allowing them to hack into the machines and steal customers’ payment data. No wonder big retailers like Target and Home Depot keep on losing our credit card data to hackers. Researchers at Trustwave, a cybersecurity firm were quite flummoxed to find that retailers still use decades old passwords for credit card readers. Device makers sell machines to special distributors. A spokesman for Verifone said that a password alone isn’t enough to infect machines with malware.

Tracing a hacker Table of Contents Introduction Have you ever been connected to your computer when something strange happens? A CD drive opens on its own, your mouse moves by itself, programs close without any errors, or your printer starts printing out of nowhere? When this happens, one of the first thoughts that may pop into your head is that someone has hacked your computer and is playing around with you. When your computer is hacked, a hacker will typically install a Remote Access Trojan, or RAT, that will allow them to gain access to it again in the future. While the hacker is connected, though, they are vulnerable because we can use programs that allow us to see the IP address that the user is connected from. Using TCPView in Windows to see who is connected to your computer TCPView is a powerful tool for Windows that allows you to see all of the current TCP/IP network connections on your computer.
