Hackers/Crackers at work?

Hackers/Crackers at work
Sorry for the crappy image quality shot from my el cheapo phone from inside my car with my tinted window up.

I couldn’t help but to notice this particular car when I was walking to the Select Store to buy myself a pack of ciggys. Mounted on the roof of the car is a wireless antenna and a GPS receiver. The driver was on his seat and I saw a notebook on the passenger side seat. There were also 2 clamtype cellphone mounted on the dashboard of the car.

WRTSL54GS Media Storage Link Router

For those of you wishing for a USB connection for your wireless router, look no more than the WRTSL54GS.

The WRTSL54GS enables you to connect any USB device to it to expand the functionality of the wireless router.


If you plan to use a hacked firmware on it, you would need some storage space for your files. Just stick a USB drive on it and you’ll have almost unlimited storage for the WRTSL54GS.

I’ll just have to wait till I get my hands on this one :)

WRT54G v5 not compatible with 3rd party firmwares

It’s been reported at LinksysInfo that WRT54G v5 is not compatible with 3rd party firmwares. The problem lies on the amount of RAM and the OS is VxWorks instead of Linux.

If you want to use 3rd Party Firmwares, DO NOT BUY A WRT54G v5.

Known serial numbers (first 4 characters) vs versions / Chipsets:

CDF0 = WRT54G v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset
CDF1 = WRT54G v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset
CDF2 = WRT54G v1.1 / ADM6996L Chipset
CDF3 = WRT54G v1.1 / ADM6996L Chipset
CDF5 = WRT54G v2.0 / ADM6996L Chipset
CDF7 = WRT54G v2.2 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset
CDF8 = WRT54G v3.0 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset
CDF9 = WRT53G v3.1 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset
CDFA = WRT54G v4.0 / BCM5352E Chipset

CDFB = WRT54G v5.0 / BCM5352EKPB Chipset <- Stay away from this one.

WiFi in KL

WiFi in KL
Ok … for those of you who attended Anthony & Jim’s “War Driving Kuala Lumpur” training during HITBSecConf2005, these little points might be of interest to you.

I wished we had drove and collected more points but we “got stuck” somewhere for quite some time ;)

You will need Google Earth to view this file. Have fun :)

Encrypt all your packets with SSH tunneling

I presented this last night on myDEFCON #17 at 1st Floor, Northam Beach Cafe, Penang. During the past meetings, we’ve discussed and explored the art of wireless sniffing and man in the middle attacks. This is my FREE solution to guard against those attacks.

Packets shouldn’t be travelling unencrypted over the network, especially over WiFi. You can secure yourself from sniffing by using this solution or VPN.

New Age Instant Messengers

The dawn of the new age instant messengers are here. Location based social networking softwares like mates and Meetro are hitting the streets.

mates is a location based social networking system in the form of a robust web service. You are able to automatically create and populate buddy lists based on the people in your classroom, your office building, or even your neighborhood.

mates is will be available for download soon. But before you do that, take a look at the technology behind it.

I’ve got some rumors that Google might have a hand on this one.

“It’s called triangulation. We can figure out where you are based on the Wi-Fi signals around you. You can find out within a couple-hundred-foot radius where the person is located.”

Freaky don’t you think? Go grab your usernames before they disappear!

DEF CON 13 over

For those of you who can’t attend DEF CON 13 (like me), sulk no more. MakeZine covered the annual hacker conference Def Con in Las Vegas from July 29th to the 31st.

From lockpicking to WiFi Pistol to Cisco flaw presentation, this year’s conference sure ain’t dull.
