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.

Hard times for hard drives: US may ban popular imports

This could be a damaging blow to quite a few companies within the United States. For instance, take a dedicated server hosting company that relies on one of many hardware vendors like Dell or HP (Hewlett-Packard). Its possible that said vendor will have stock pile of hard drives. Put lets put this into perspective. If you read the entire article you will see a similar situation that ended with Broadcom filing a complaint against Qualcomm. The International Trade Commission banned Qualcomm from shipping any new chips and hardware into the United Sates, and any chips that were already being shipped to the United States could continue. The ban lasted for 45 days, until an appeal by Qualcomm was successful and then the ban was lifted.
