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.
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

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
How to crack wifi password using kali linux or ubuntu?

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... I think I have to connect my virtual box to my wifi adapter but I don't know how & I have tried to connect my external wifi adapter to my virtual box but I have received only failure...

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

to create a directory named sysadmin1/my_peeps/$DATE ,, am i to: echo sysadmin1/my_peeps/$DATE >> .bash_login ?? or do i: vi .bash_login and manually type the commands in there??,, i have the DATE variable already set. im looking for another way besides using mkdir.. thats my first question..
my real problem and second question is, how do i redirect the output of the w command to a file in my_peeps.. so, after that dir is created, do i do w > sysadmin1/my_peeps ??
Crack linux executable

I have a linux executable and its disassembly (in particular, the program checks if I'm superuser, and if so, output some message by executing function "start_reactor" and exit; if I'm not a superuser the program call another function "check_password"), what I need is to find a way to crack it (execute function "start_reactor") by entering some specific string as an input for function "check_password".
Below is dissasembly of an executable..

How to crack intermittent bug in C Linux?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 29, 2012
I'm running out of good ideas on how to crack this bug. I have 1000 lines of code that crashes every 2 or 3 runs. It is currently a prototype command line application written in C. An issue is that it's proprietary and I cannot give you the source, but I'd be happy to send a debug compiled executable to any brave soul on a Debian Squeeze x86_64 machine.
Here is what I got so far:
When I run it in GDB, it always complete successfully.
When I run it in Valgrind, it always complete successfully.
The issue seems to emanate from a recursive function call that is very basic. In an effort to pin point the error in this recursive function I wrote the same function in a separate application. It always completes successfully.
I built my own gcc 4.7.1 compiler, compiled my code with it and I'm still getting the same behavior.
FTped my application to another machine to eliminate the risk of HW issues and I still get the same behavior.
FTped my source code to another machine to eliminate the ris
