Introducing the Official Release of TX Power Blast v2.0

I have rewritten and tweaked out TX Power Blast into a version 2.0. TX Power Blast is a handy little proof of concept utility I wrote that increases the power of your WiFi card and opens up additional channels normally not accessible in the US. I am creating a quick little tutorial to post on my YouTube channel later today and when it is done I will add the video and the link here. Nothing difficult, the tutorial just Continue reading

New Project – R.E.S.S.

So, I started a new project recently and I am pretty excited about it. This is not any new hacking tool or anything but I think a ton of people will find it very handy. This is a utility I am creating out of my own needs but I intend to offer this up as an open source bash script for the community. How many times have you grabbed that cool new application, then you go to install it and discover you have 500 directories with 3000 different files you need to set to executable? Well nobody wants to do each one individually. Doing them with a grab all per script type can take... Continue reading

What are Rainbow Tables and why would I need them?

So you may have heard about these things called rainbow tables. Maybe you thought, "What the hell is a rainbow table? Some kind of new Skittles?" and that would be ok. Well, what if I told you they are magic tables to figure out hidden hash passwords? Ok, maybe they aren't truly magic but they sure will seem that way.  Rainbow tables are a very organized, precision way to crack password hashes. It may take quite awhile, as cracking hashes Continue reading

LibreOffice Won’t Open

So this post is a little off track but I really wanted to share this because it is such an issue and has been for a long time now and LibreOffice doesn't seem to be in any hurry to fix it. Listen, I love LibreOffice but only if it works. From what I have seen while looking around the web this issue has been a problem since about 2015. Continue reading

Getting ready for the Big Hack

So you are ready for your big hack. You did your research and social engineering, picked out your method of attack, and you think you are ready to go. One thing a lot of people just starting out forget all about it how to cloak themselves. Sure, you can use a Proxy, setup a VPN, and perform your work from a remote location, NOT YOUR HOME. However, there is one other identifiable item you can affect for that little extra bit of cloaking. What might that Continue reading

Yet another way to change your Boot Screen

Welcome back, if you have been following along with my tutorials. I recently went through how to manually change your boot screen (also referred to as the grub screen), your login screen, and what I call the animation screen. The animation screen is basically a transition screen shown while your system is either loading or shutting down in Parrot Security OS. So if you Continue reading

What is Babysploit?

So there is a neat little toolkit, originally written for Kali, call Babysploit. Babysploit was designed as a smaller, learning toolset similar to MetaSploit. So, if MetaSploit seems a bit heavy for you at first you can always install and… Continue reading

Make life easier with automation

As a LINUX user you should always be looking for ways to automate things on your system. Automation makes things much easier and more efficient. Learning to use Bash script is certainly a step in the right direction there. I find myself with quite a collection of various Bash scripts I have written over the years to make my life easier. For example, if you always boost your wifi card before an audit or attack why not write a script for those steps as opposed to typing all that out each time? Continue reading

Where did the Users & Groups GUI go?

For those of you that have used LINUX previously you may have noticed in the Control Panel, or wherever it may be in your distro, that there is no longer a GUI for Users & Groups. Well sure, you can still add users and such from terminal but even I like having the GUI option. For some odd reason, and I am still not clear why, it has been removed in recent versions of Parrot Security. The good news is, it is still lurking in the background. Continue reading

Tutorial 12 – Creating and using a wordlist

In this tutorial I will go over how to create your own wordlists used for cracking passwords in hash files, including how to create a targeted wordlist for a specific target. I will also introduce you to a handy little tool to help you choose just the right wordlist to use for an attack. Enjoy! Continue reading
