    June 6, 2008

    Screen in an amazing tool. The latest version from CVS adds an amazing feature to allow you to split screens vertically (previously you could only split horizontally), which is extremely nice if you have a widescreen monitor. The only problem is that the patch isn’t yet included in MacPorts or Fink for this feature. Here’s how […]

  • Get disass-cli working properly on OSX and Freebsd

    April 11, 2008

    I’ve been digging into the world of exploit writing lately, working on Defcon‘s previous year’s CTF qualification programs, I ran into Atlas’ presentation on “Kiddie to Hacker in 5 sleepless nights”, which talks about some of his mindset when he first got into binary exploitation. Atlas has written a tool call disass to aid in […]

  • How to enable 1280×800 resolution in Parallels for X11

    January 31, 2008

    This topic really sucks to search for, way too many different results without any actual clarity, so here’s how I was able to get it working: Firstly, power down the image and edit the configuration options for your image, click on the “Video options”.

  • Compile Ettercap-NG-0.7.3 natively on Leopard Fix

    November 15, 2007

    UPDATE 2: njstaticuser mentioned he would like to know where to get this file below: I believe the file should be in /opt/local/var/macports/build/ – there should be a folder called _opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_<ettercap-ng> where <ettercap-ng> will be something like “net_ettercap-ng” (I don’t know the exact name because it has been cleaned from that directory). Under this directory […]
