Guide to wifi hacking using Wifite

Disclaimer: What you do with this information is up to you. You are fully responsible for what you do with this info, and how you use it. HackMethod is not responsible for your actions. Please do not hack Wifi points that you are not allowed to. NOTE: I do advise having a USB WiFi adapter, and an extra point would be to get a great one like the ALFA AWUS036NHR or AWUS051NH. Although any card would do as long as it supports monitor mode and packet injection.

Introduction

When it comes to the world of WiFi hacking, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Skilled hackers can combine attacks together for increased efficiency, and can also judge on which attack is best to use given a particular situation. By the end of this guide you should have an overall idea on the types of attacks that you can use against any WiFi-enabled AP or router. (more…)

Hardware – Random Access Memory (RAM)

Basics

RAM stands for Random-Access Memory and is commonly referred to as RAM or Memory for short. It serves as temporary storage and working space for the operating system and its applications. This allows data to be accessed (read or written) in almost real-time regardless of the physical location inside the memory as opposed to HDDs, Disc Drives, or any other mechanical media.  In the majority of computers, RAM is an easily upgradeable option that will increase the performance of your operating system and application usage. RAM is a volatile type of storage medium. Which means if you reboot, shutdown, or have a power loss of any sort, every bit of data residing in memory no longer exists. (more…)

Passive Recon – Hacking with Google Dorking

Google Dorking can technically be defined as a type of hacking by itself. The basic idea of Google Dorking is to used Google's advanced search features/operators to obtain information about someone, or something. In general we know that Google Search is a big database of all the webpages that are considered publicly searchable (I'm not going into deep web in this article). Public webpages are websites that googles spider has access to. It is possible to make your website not searchable by telling Google's search spider that you do not wish for it to crawl and index your website. That being said I think you'll find that most websites on the internet are intended to be found and as such can be searched using dorks. (more…)

Homelab: Intro to building a pfSense router/firewall & VMWare ESXi server

A few months back A1ph4byte, hellor00t, and I had a discussion about a project that would be both educational and useful.  Despite being employed in the Network Security world, none of us had tinkered with pfSense in-depth prior to this venture. We mostly relied on the "strict" firewall rules of our SOHO routers.  As enthusiasts not only would this serve as a fun and interesting project for us, but it would also serve as a guide/walk-through to others with our same interests.  In addition, we thought it would be entertaining to VPN our networks together to build a somewhat larger "homelab" to test theories and attempt to mess with each others VMs, but that's another write-up for a different time. The overall goal of this is to setup a more secure home network. (more…)

Personal Computer Security Basics

Overview

This topic may be a bit basic for many regular visitors but I feel that it is important enough to be discussed. Many people often forget the simple things, this discussion is by no means all inclusive nor guarantees that you will be protected. What I hope to accomplish is to highlight a few security mistakes that I see average users make and provide ways to mitigate. For the sake of brevity I won't get too deep into how or why. These practices are applicable REGARDLESS of operating system. (more…)
