Subject description: Backtrack Linux advice
 

After doing some Puppy hopping (Fatdog, Dpup revisited and a multi-media based Puppy) decided to do some distro hopping and somehow ended up with Backtrack http://www.backtrack-linux.org/ which I think is for security professionals.

It is based on Ubuntu and runs very well as a lived CD on my system.
I thought I might install it on a USB drive and see if I can hack my wireless password. Twisted Evil

Confused Backtrack seems to have a diversity of tools
but not sure where to start?

I need something like rainbow tables? Ideally I want a program called 'scan for wireless network, find password and connect'.

As far as I know it should be OK to hack/crack my own system?
Shocked

Any advice welcome Smile

aircrack-ng suite is what you want for wireless cracking, but you need a wireless adapter that supports monitor mode and injection

WEP is so easy to crack it's a joke, WPA is more difficult is easy to capture the encrypted password but then you need some sort of dictionary attack to get the readable password can take a huge dictionary and a lot of processing power

and yes it is fine to try and crack your own just don't be tempted to try next doors.

There are a few scripts that can automate this to a certain extent for noobs I will try and remember and post back

Smile many thanks
tried that and it is asking for a password
- that password bit intrigues me - can it be circumvented?
At the moment all I have is a way of connecting to wifi . . .

I am not even up to script kiddy status [Lobster hangs head in shame] Crying or Very sad

I will give aircrack on backtrack a go Smile

Many thanks Mark Smile
After I have a go at wpa-ing myself and anyone else I can get permission to wep, what should be my next act of ethical hacking? Cool

is it big? How big? Smile

I did download it but how does one get it booted using frugal install?
Is it not Grub2? How did you do it Lobster? I guess CD or DVD or USB?

2000 MB guys Embarassed
I downloaded the r2 (proper release 2 - not a release candidate) torrent here:
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/downloads/
I then ran as a live DVD (I use RW-DVD)
using the first option to boot with (live DVD I think it was)

Getting online was easy with (I think it was pwire) which you can turn off and works OK with my ethernet.
I rather like their zen/shinobi quote
"The quieter you are
the more you hear"

The user and password is root and toor
They suggest you change this right away.
I could not be bothered. Embarassed

On the top left is an install icon but I do not think I would install
but will continue live booting.

Technically because it is Ubuntu based we could take all the best stuff add to a standard Puppy 5.2 and have the mythical BOP
Black Ops Puppy
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=262854#262854

I may provide a link on the wiki http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BlackOps but nothing more than this

Hi fellow armchair security ninja wannabes, Cool

I have now also managed to boot from an 8 gig USB keydrive on my Asus Netbook.
Does the Atheros adaptor have 'monitor mode' and 'injection'?(whatever they are)

To make Backtrack bootable from USB
you will need shuriken (optional)
you will also need the ISO from here
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/downloads/
and the Unetbootin mentioned here:
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/tutorials/usb-live-install/

Use gparted to format your USB keydrive to fat32
(the whole thing - no unallocated bits)

I tried to download Unetbootin from PPM and use that
- it had dependencies - so I used Mint Linux which I have on my hard disk
that worked

Depends which Atheros
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Drivers

Is not recommended to use your inbuilt adapter either

Q5sys knocked up AttackPup, which has some of the Backtrack tools:

Thanks guys.
I got the python script running
but its display was unreadable even when rotating the screen 270 degrees (a bit of lateral thinking) probably solvable . . .
(I think this is due to python/small screen resolution)

I may have to check out the atheros driver . . .
Anyway that was sufficient progress for my first day as a cyber-ninja

My humble apologies to Q5sys for forgetting his attackpup.
I will download and give that a go . . . Cool

Confused
Well after many years ...
Back Track is now Kali Linux and I am even less interested in cracking/hacking ...

More interested in securing rather than paranoiding or nefarious activity. Cool

- I tried Tor browser and found only buying guns, child porn and drug buying. No thanks Rolling Eyes
- Quite happy with PaleMoon and Vivaldi browsers. Very Happy
- Websites do not need flash, cookies or javascript (can compromise systems including Linux). So mostly avoid such sites ... Idea

Gaggle, Farcebark, Twatter and Fake Presidents Twisted Evil seem to be our main problem.

When I was in my early 20's I got to witness firsthand the disregard mainstream journalism has for truth and accuracy. Their gig is selling drama, sensationalism, and scandal. They literally stage things and make stuff up.

I was there. Witnessed it firsthand. Instantly became a skeptic and a cynic.

One can never be a passive consumer of information and current events. If you are, then realize your head has been filled with nonsense. The only worthwhile information is information you have pursued, validated, and analyzed for accuracy on your own

As for "hacking", .. My involvement centers around OpSec and pen testing. I'm a white hat.

As for online anonymity, it is overly optimistic to think you can mask yourself from the likes of the NSA. You CAN mask yourself from everyone else, though. It's the "everyone else" you really need to paranoid about ..
