If they just gave you a stock computer without any modifications, probably not. Usually computers do not automatically make a copy of data from USB drives. However it is not uncommon to store metadata about the files somewhere, for example thumbnails and things like what sort order you picked for that drive. Usually the natural place to store this is ...

In principal, the school (or school employee) could have installed any kind of spying software on your chromebook, but this requires from them skills, effort and motivation. Yes, potentially they could have read all the files from the tablet, though that would require some determination. I'd like to say it's unlikely for a typical school to do it, but I can'...

so all the member in the same network(in the same network means using the same PMK)can calculate the PTK, even PTK is not transmitted in the air. Yes they can. Anyone who knows the Pre-Shared Key/PMK/password can calculate the PTK. But this isn't the threat model WPA is designed to defend against. WPA is meant to prevent an unauthorized person from ...

Security for WPA PSK effectively revolves around the secrecy of the key. Anybody who has the key is allowed to connect to the network, and can also decrypt the traffic in the correct circumstances. As long as the key is strong and not shared with the entire world, it is considered reasonably secure for many use cases. Even if you couldn't decrypt the ...

Roughly speaking, when you do anything on the Internet, you do so through a network interface. That is the thing that "has an IP address". You can have several interfaces on your system (for example Ethernet, WiFi, and the "loopback" interface that allows two programs to talk to each other through the "internet" even if you are ...

In the case described above... Instead of changing the security group everytime you go somewhere I would strongly advise using the AWS VPN. The VPN allows you to connect to a static IP directly. You use a VPN to connect to the AWS enviorment securely and can allow the security group to access the ip from the VPN.

A wireless network card can act as an access point if the card supports "master mode". If you run iw list, check to make sure "AP" is in the list for that interface. This should be the case for most cards. This also has nothing to do with monitor mode, since monitor mode is a passive mode and advertising a network requires transmission.

With only one card, you can spawn an evil twin access point. So the victim will try to connect to you and see that there is no Internet connection available with your AP.. But some advanced attacks consist of use the first card to emit the fake AP and connect the second card to the real AP. In this configuration, you can forward the victim traffic to the ...

Refer to the manual that came with you Panasonic Lumix camera, where's probably a chapter Using the Wi-Fi function. It seems the camera doesn't by default advertise any WiFi direct network or try and connect to open WiFi networks, but both have to be configured through the camera menus. A random Panasonic Lumix manual I picked even advices to configure ...

To know whether each individual app is secure in that scenario cannot be answered without thoroughly auditing each app. But assuming they are securely using TLS for all communications, any type of local biometric authentication probably doesn't have anything to do with what traffic is sent to the server. The application is probably already logged in to the ...

If you connect to the company VPN through your routers VPN the source IP seen by the companies VPN is the exit of your routers VPN. This way your company will not see the real IP address, assuming no other leaks exists. But, the company will see the properties of the IP address from the VPN exit. It can find out that it is not an IP address given by your ISP....

A malconfigured VPN can leak your real IP address. If it doesn't, however, it'll probably be fine and they won't know your real location.
