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.
I guess, if you have vanity plates, this should be doable… But, if anything, it will create huge roars of laughter in the parking area of any security firm.
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.
Well, not actually a box, but an expresscard. The Gatekeeper Card Pro seems to be a hardened PC on an expresscard with its own processor, memory and OS. And it automagically updates itself from the internet. Hmm, I’ve seen the concept before and it’s been notoriously hard to get right. Maybe I’ll order one.
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.
