Had a guy call in from the hurricane zone, seeing as we were swamped with calls i had to triage him so an agent would call him back,
This is the convo, mind you the man has a heavy brooklyn accent
“So your telling me theres nothing you can do? Your holding a gun to my head”
“I’m sorry sir but…wait what?”
“Like i said it not like i have a choice youve got a gun to my head”
” thats an interesting way to put it”
“Well im not from one of those farm countries im from newyork”
“And im outside detroit sir”
“See were both from hard areas!”
So after guessing over 1 million passwords in 15 hours I decided to install backtrack on the desktop and let it whack at it instead.. it has a higher grade CPU 3.2 dual core compared to 2.0 dual, more memory 6 gb compared to 4 gb but the weirdest thing is its actually doing a lot worse!
Where the laptop was running anywhere from 500 hashes on power saver to 1000+ on performance the desktop it only doing roughly 333-345 at full boat
I’ll look into it more tommorow but hopefully this isn’t a trend..
Today I played with Backtrack 5 and “penatration tested” ,a buisness friendly way of saying hacked, my own Wireless Access Points I set one up as WEP and the other as WPA2 personal, the wep was done within about 15 minutes and it only took that long because I let it grab 30,000+ packets first, once I set down for the password it was done in seconds, the WPA I set up and deauthed my android cellphones wifi connection making it handshake a few times, the dictionary hack is still running, should this not work ill fall back to straight brute force
EDIT: As of 4 am the next morning the computer had cycled the entire dictionary with no luck, I set it up to use “John the Ripper” to bruteforce the password out, this started at 4:38 am, should it finish or not I’ll post back
Forum is now up and working at the above Forum Link, not sure at this point if i plan to keep phpBB or not, May switch to vBulletin but ill play with both side by side over the next few days and see which i like better and remove the latter
Went back to Look and see if Voices of the Life stream did any more music, and found an entire site of AWESOMENESS! this is all remixed Video game music, from Donkey Kong to Final Fantasy
