How To: Use UFONet

With the release of the Mirai source code, botnets are back in a big way. In the early days of botnets, zombies (infected hosts) would report to IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channels for CNC (command and control) instructions. Modern botnets have evolved, but they continue to use the same concepts as their predecessors.

News: Why Is Linux & Other Open-Source Software Free?

Welcome back, my greenhorn hackers! As hackers, we often take for granted that nearly all of our hacking tools and operating system are free and open source. I think it's important to examine a bit of background on how we arrived at this intriguing juncture in the history of computer software. After all, we pay for nearly all of our other software (Microsoft, Adobe, etc.) and nearly everything else we use in life, so how is it that Linux and all our hacking tools are free?

How To: Log into Your Raspberry Pi Using a USB-to-TTL Serial Cable

Connecting to your headless Raspberry Pi on the go typically requires a network connection or carrying around bulky peripheral hardware like a screen and keyboard. With the help of an old-school connecting standard, though, you can log into your Pi from any computer using a simple cable. If you don't have a power source, you can also power your Linux distro over the cable at the same time.

How to Hack Wi-Fi: Capturing WPA Passwords by Targeting Users with a Fluxion Attack

With tools such as Reaver becoming less viable options for pen-testers as ISPs replace vulnerable routers, there become fewer certainties about which tools will work against a particular target. If you don't have time to crack the WPA password or it's unusually strong, it can be hard to figure out your next step. Luckily, nearly all systems have one common vulnerability you can count on — users!

How To: Exploring Kali Linux Alternatives: How to Get Started with Parrot Security OS, a Modern Pentesting Distro

Kali Linux is the obvious first choice of an operating system for most new hackers, coming bundled with a curated collection of tools organized into easy-to-navigate menus and a live boot option that is very newbie-friendly. But Kali isn't the only distribution targeted at pentesters, and many exciting alternatives may better fit your use-case. We've already covered BlackArch Linux, now it's time to talk about Parrot Security OS.

How To: Use SpiderFoot for OSINT Gathering

During a penetration test, one of the most important aspects of engaging a target is information gathering. The more information you have coming into an attack, the more likely the attack is to succeed. In this article, I'll be looking at SpiderFoot, a modular cross-platform OSINT (open-source intelligence) gathering tool.

News: Always-Updated List of Apps That Let You Change Their Home Screen Icons on Your iPhone

App developers have had the tools to offer user-selectable app icons since March 2017 when the feature was introduced as part of iOS 10.3. At the time, only two apps officially supported the feature. Over three years later, the list isn't much larger, even though many of us would like to see widespread implementation of user-selectable app icons for the home screen.

How To: Create a Custom Arch Linux Distro

Having a custom Linux distro can be the coolest thing ever. Most of you will probably be satisfied with any particular Linux distribution, but I know I'm not the only one out there who wants it to have custom configurations and programs preloaded while leaving the bloatware behind.

News: Don Williamson's Real-Time Web-Based DCPU-16 Emulator & ASM Code Editor

Don Williamson shared his real-time web-based code editor & interpreter for the DCPU-16 Virtual Machine. It makes nice use of the canvas tag for a beautiful blue console, features a real-time recompile as you type, and thanks to some custom DCPU-16 support for Marijn Haverbeke's wonderful CodeMirror syntax highlighting textarea library, it'll give you real-time error feedback as you type.

How To: Code Your Own Twitter Client in Python Using OAuth

This is my attempt to show people some cool things we can do with programming, and to give a small incentive for people to join the weekly Community Bytes. I wanted to make a tutorial on how to use Twitter from the command line with Python. This would have been an easy project to do not too far back, and a good bit of practice for a beginner to programming. It teaches that you can do useful stuff with programming. However, a while ago Twitter started using something called OAuth to access the...

News: New Pyxiewps Version Is Out.

Helo my dear friends! A few days ago, I shared with this community my wrapper-script (a wrapper is a program that joins other programs that do the real job) to automatize the attacks on Pixie-Dust vulnerable routers. I was recieving complains from non-Kali users that had problems trying to launch the program, so I decided to make a good installer so anybody can use it in any DEB based distro.
