Cracking Secured (WEP/WPA) Wireless Networks with Backtrack!

I’ve always been asked, “is my Wireless Network secure?” and usually reply with “As long as you’re using WPA with a strong password”. However I wanted to test that out and do some penetration testing.

I looked on the supported devices section of a popular distribution called “BackTrack” that seems to have everything you require to penetrate 802.11 wireless access points.

I’ve picked up a NetGear WG111 and a Linksys WUSB54GC, I’ve yet to test either to see if they’re going to work. And in work I mean actually be able to inject packets, as that’s the main reasoning behind it.

I will be using this guide I stumbled upon online via Google search.

MySQL and OpenSSL Replication what a mess!

Just a heads up, if you do decide to enable OpenSSL so you can do encrypted MySQL replication. There are two bugs that will affect replication and the mysqldump command. They're as follows: Bug #24148 regression tests hang with SSL enabled http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=24148 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/17286 Bug #27669 mysqldump: Got error: 2026: SSL connection error when trying to connect http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=27669 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/24329 This may cause lots of problems with MySQL and SSL Replication using OpenSSL. Cheers!
