How easy is it to crack into Ubuntu/Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 18, 2009
I'm wondering about this because a Windows PC can be put at the mercy of a cracker with only a few lines of code in an executable.
Today when I was downloading a program for my Ubuntu I wondered, just how easy/difficult is it to crack this system. What if I download from an untrustable site? As I don't have time attempt anything myself at this moment, maybe someone with experience in programming for Linux can answer this.
When I download a tar.gz/deb/whatever and attempt to install this software through the normal procedures, is it at all possible that the software can attempt to do anything that I would not like it to do, without me approving/knowing? For example, can it open ports, add exceptions, use other programs that are already on the system? For example to send information to another PC, to collect info on the PC itself?

Flying Drone Can Crack Wi-Fi Networks, Snoop On Cell Phones
How do one ex-Air Force official and one former airplane hobby shop owner, both of whom happen to have decades of experience as network security contractors for the military, spend their weekends? Building a flying, unmanned, automated password-cracking, Wi-Fi-sniffing, cell-phone eavesdropping spy drone, of course.
Shadow File Crack
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 22, 2005
I have a simply question.
Shadow file is only accessible from root. Well.
There's a way to override this control and read the contents of this file?
Nothing is impossible .. right?
a crack on LINUX CD distro
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 22, 2006
I got this SUSE 10.o CD1 broken (a physical crack in the middle)-(maybe 1st 'cluster' of CD).
Somehow I managed to have it copied and it works, in other words it's completed (finished) on 1st install.
Seems illogical that a crack CD can be installed and works out fine.
What I want to know is how do I CRC check the distro CD?
Many thanks in advanced

I have to find a way to crack a users "simple" password after I have gained access to the /etc/shadow file.
Now, i have tried using John the Ripper and it is taking years to figure the password out, maybe i am using it wrong but i copied the line in /etc/passwd to a file called passwd.txt and the hashed line in /etc/shadow to a file called shadow.txt.
I then run John the Ripper with: "unshadow passwd.txt shadow.txt", then i copy the output from that command to another file called temp.txt.
I then run John the Ripper again with the command: "john temp.txt"
It seems to be trying to crack it, but it is taking hours.
Does anyone know of a better hash cracker or what am doing wrong, I have to figure this out for a school project so any help would be greatly appreciated.
itouch and linux (after the crack)

hi again, as some of you have already read i was tryin to find a way to crack my ipod touch 2nd gen. well thanks to woosyrmomma, introducing me to the cywood tethered hack, i got my itouch out of jail, wworked extremely well and i really apreciated that woosyrmomma. but i tried to follow this tutorial https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Po...Devices/iPhone, sure that it was going to work but when i added the repository that it told me to add which was deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ipod-touch/ubuntu gutsy main, but i substituted gutsy for intrepid because for one i tried gutsy main at first, just to see, and when it started downloading all the new packages, all of the ones from the repository failed, just to make sure ads well i searched for ipod-convenience after the download was complete, and couldnt find it. for two it made more sense that i substituted intrepid because im using kubuntu 8.10. when i used intrepid instead, the same thing, the packages from the new third party repository
Linux command for creating a shadow tree
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
The source files for a project i'm working on have become quite numerous, so I was thinking of placing them in separate directories. I have been using make to compile the code, but I hear things can get a little interesting when using make with source files that are split across multiple directories. To get around this, I was thinking of creating a build directory and copying over sym links to the source files before compiling (effectively creating a shadow tree). I've been told there might be a unix command out there that will save me writing a script to do this. Has anybody heard of anything like this?
How to crack wifi password using kali linux or ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 3, 2015
I am trying to hack a wifi router using ubuntu but unfortunately I am unable to do the same because whenever I write this code airmon-ng start wlan 0 or airmon-ng I am not able to see my wifi adapter listed under interface chipset driver and I am doing the whole thing using virtual box.. And also please mention the process in step wise...

Do it like this is your situation, your server, and the dir that are mentioned below, act like they are yours! im just looking for an accurate answer!

whenever you log in, your shell executes commands that it finds in your dotfiles, specifically .bash_login. In your .bash_login, add a series of commands that will first create a directory named ~/sysadmin1/my_peeps/$DATE, where $DATE is today's date in the format mmddyy. This command should succeed whether or not the directory ~/sysadmin1/my_peeps already exists. Then, it will redirect the output of the w command (which lists the currently logged in users on the system) to a file inside this newly created directory called users.$TIME, where $TIME is the current time in the format hhmmss (use 24 hour time).
In order to do this, you must use a new concept: assignment of a variable from the output of a command. For example, in order to set the variable EXAMPLEDATE using the unformatted output o
