Hacking wifi

It became a lot easier for scripkiddies to exploit a known vulnerability in the Intel Centrino 2200BG wifi adapter driver. It was added to the metasploit hacking tool.


P2P Investigation

I was hoping p2pmarshal could help with investigating ongoing p2p exchanges. Alas, that was not to be, it only creates an analysis of content found on a seized medium.

I have not tested it (yet), but it will come in handy in a lot of child-abuse cases, that’s for sure.

To be sure everyone understands: I have NOT tested the application. If I have, I will post my review.

Ruby documentation

I’ve been using Ruby for some small projects for a couple of weeks now. So far, there are worse languages in the world (Perl JUMPS to mind). I’ve used Python for a long time (10+ years, at least). It’s a language to love, but, people are all raving about Ruby (on Rails) therefore I gave it a go.

Verdict so far

  • Language OK
  • Documentation SUCK

However, I’m not the only one. Fundamentally, Ruby can be used to create applications quite easily. However, if the documentation is hard to find or non-existant that purpose fails. I find myself looking at the implementation of ruby classes far more often than I’d expected, because the documentation is so thin. It surely cooled my appetite.
