Hacking Challenges

Defcon 17!

August 1st, 2009 by Patchy
Nox and I are in Las Vegas for Defcon 17! It our first time at Defcon, and from want we’ve seen so far it going to be an amazing weekend. We’ve already heard some great speeches, and seen some pretty cool stuff. As many of you know, the attendees of Defcon get a badge with some electronics to hack and modify.

This years badge has a Freescale MC56F8006 DSP/microprocessor chip, microphone, and RGB LED. The RGB LED cycles through different colors until the microphone picks up some noise then the LED with respond to the volume and frequency of the sound. We decide to try playing different frequencies and see if the badge would reveal some easter eggs for a specific frequency. After a few minutes we figured out that the LED would blink what look to be Morse code whenever it pick up a frequency that was a power of 2 (such as 64hz,256hz,1024hz, etc.).

The Morse code message turned out to be the url Tomorrow, I’m going to try to get a level shifter, so I can modify the firmware!

Infinity Exists Updates!!

June 2nd, 2009 by Patchy
Nox and I haven’t made any new Full Disclosure episodes in a while because we have been busy with school. However, we have made a few updates to the website. Infinity Exists now has a new forum! We finally got rid of the old shitty WP-Forum, and we are now using Simple:Press Forum. Also, I was able to transfer all the old threads and posts to the new forum. The new forum has several new features such as PMs, topic watching, RSS, Who’s online, and etc., so go check it out! Nox and I have decided that we could use a few moderators to help use manage the forums, and help us develop projects for Infinity Exists. Projects like creating an IRC server, and setting up hacking boxes. If you would like to become a moderator send an email to Another website update is the new Photo section. I have a lot of random pictures that I thought you guys might like, so I decided to put them on the website. Nox and I are now on summer break, so we will be releasing some new episodes soon!

Bypass Cisco Clean Access & Cisco NAC Appliance

September 10th, 2008 by Patchy
Cisco NAC Appliance (formerly Cisco Clean Access) is a Network Admission Control (NAC) product that is uses to enforce security policy on computers seeking to access network resources. Therefore, an administrator can force users to comply to a policy that requires the user to install or remove programs. For example, a university I previously attended required students to install McAfee Antivirus Software and remove Peer-to-Peer programs before they were allowed to access the internet.

To bypass Cisco Clean Access a user can simply change their browser’s User Agent to an Operating System that does not require this program [ex. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511]. An easy way to change your User Agent in Firefox is to download User Agent Switcher.

With Cisco NAC Appliance, Cisco added additional detection mechanisms such as TCP fingerprinting and JavaScript OS detection, so the User Agent trick will not work. However, by changing the default parameters of the Windows TCP/IP stack the user can still connect to the network without running any host-based checks. You can do this with Kevin.

Recovering an Acer Computer

July 29th, 2008 by Patchy
Last Thursday, my Acer Travelmate laptop crapped out on me and stopped booting Windows XP. I tried everything to fix it: booting into safe mode, using Windows recovery console to fix the boot.ini, fixing the corrupted partition boot sector with Fixboot, and fixing the Master boot record with Fixmdr. I even tried to reinstall windows, but it still wouldn’t boot! So I decided I would just backup all my stuff with a liveCD, format the drive, and use the recovery cd to start all over. Guess what? Acer doesn’t ship their laptops with a Recovery CD; they require you have to burn it yourself when you first get the computer, and of course I was way too lazy to do that. Well after some research I found out there is a hidden recovery partition that the Acer repair people use to fix your computer. If you are having the same problem as me, heres how I accessed the hidden partition and recovered my computer.

1. Boot your computer with the Backtrack liveCD (I used BT2 because it was the only thing I had off hand)
2. Backtrack will automatically mount the hidden drive (sda1). Navigate to it in the /mnt/sda1 folder.
3. Copy mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin from the /mnt/sda1 folder to the /mnt/sda2 folder (your C drive).
4. Next, you need to run the mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin command. You can do this a couple different ways: You can use the Windows Recovery Console to run the command, or use a Windows LiveCD like BartPE ( I used BartPE because I already tried to re-install windows and I couldn’t access the recovery console because I wasn’t able to set an Administrator password.
5. Restart your computer, and press Alt-F10 at the Acer splash screen. This will bring you to the Acer eRecovery on the hidden partition, and all you have to do is follow the directions to restore the factory settings. (If you can’t access the eRecovery make sure d2d recovery is enabled in BIOS. You can access the BIOS by pressing F2 at the Acer splash screen).
6. After your computer is restored, burn the damn recovery cd so you don’t have to do this next time!!!

This last month we didn’t produce many videos; however, we did make quite a few updates to the website. First off, we created the new video page with the thumbnail preview of each video. We also have the donations up and running, as well as, the new video series, Infinity Exists Underground. Also, I made several fixes to the forums: Threads are now sorted by the last post (which was not easy to do, since WP-Forum was not designed to do that =O), I changed the way posts and threads are created to prevent multiple posts, and I also did various small fixes. Tomorrow we will be releasing Full Disclosure Episode 19 – a short video on Lock Picking Basics. Hopefully in the upcoming weeks we will have a couple more videos released.
