Your question is devoid of about all useful information what would allow me to answer it, so I will resort to stochastically non-causal inference, also known as "guessing". I suppose that you are connecting to a WiFi access point, provided by your employer for tasks that do not include massive downloading of entertainment datasets of questionable legality. ...

I think you are worrying about the wrong thing. You should have no reason to trust the local network any more than you would for any data you'd send over the public internet. If you want to send a password, it's your responsibility to ensure you're using a connection protected by TLS. Trusting the local WiFi to protect your data is essentially excluding ...

It's looking at channel -1, try running aircrack with the following option: --ignore-negative-one or --ig as it said in the error you posted: 13:50:47 Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: ACCESS_POINT_MAC) on channel -1 13:50:47 Couldn't determine current channel for mon0, you should either force the operation with --ignore-negative-one or apply a ...

First, a comment; sometimes (read "almost always") I get a cool new toy, app, technology and I try to fit it in in every possible place. Even in places that don't work, I enjoy figuring out why. It's a learning experience. The term "Threat Model" may sound either overly theoretical, or dismissive of your case. The purpose is for the security consultant ...

Having once worked at an edu, it was our goal to make things as seamless and painless for the clients (students) of the University. As a professional, there were many things that we championed for especially when it came to security. For example, we opposed P2P network, because traffic patterns at the time pointed to students downloading music (back then ...

Short answer The main point to answer your question is that we need to know the original chopped off bit to be able to reconstruct the ICV. Only if we know that original bit, we can correct the altered packet so that it is accepted again. Longer answer AFAIK I think your assumption that Next, he/she "chops-off" the last byte of the message, right ...

At a bare minimum, you expose the account the service runs as. If the service is subject to attack, then that becomes a vulnerability. This is no different from exposing any other service, except that it is exposing a communications channel. The important question is, "what else on the box is using that communication channel?" You need to chase down the ...

Yes. The people who operate business networks log nearly everything for a variety of regulatory, security, and performance-monitoring reasons. "They" will know from their logs what IP address was assigned to you at given times. So, if anyone (like the RIAA) complains, they'll find out it was you, or at least your password. (See Tom Leek's answer about MAC ...

In order to act as a proper access point, your card needs to support "master"/"AP" mode. You can fake it if the card supports "monitor" mode with packet injection (in this case, your AP software will be performing many of the tasks that the driver/card would be performing in "master" mode), and you can get some of the functionality of an AP if your card ...

From the kali forum: run it with --ignore-negative-one or --ig
