I introduced a friend of mine to war-driving and stumbling tonight, and we went for a quick spin with the Asus so he could see what it was all about. Sold!
After getting Kismet set up on the EEE it was time to go for a walk. With the GPS stuck to the lid of the closed EEE, I shoved it in the push-chair and set off. Totalled around 650 networks on a stroll through the centre of Gijón and along El Muro.
I know I’m late in mentioning this, but I’ve been very busy in both professional and personal life, so things like spewing bile on a blog have to wait.
Anyway, Kismac has been moved away from it’s German roots, due to draconian and rather pathetic laws that have been passed there, from the Kismac team;
“As you may well be aware, we have moved this part of the site offshore to Switzerland. The German politicians have shown their lack of understanding of security matters by deciding to ban anything that can be used to breach security.”
The new site is located at http://kismac.macpirate.ch/ so drop by there, and if you can program, get involved!
More traveling around, looking at suitable office space, with the laptop scanning away.
Two scans here, one around Blackburn and Preston, and one over to Burnley.
So we’re moving offices soon, and are looking at business parks around the area, so the stumblin’ gear was set up in the car and off we went

I got a Linksys WUSB54G v4 off Ebay last week, with the intention of modding it for an external antenna, but took it for a drive earlier today.I was picking up a lot more SSIDs during a drive around town, routes I’ve travelled before and I’m pretty sure I was picking up SSIDs from both sides of the street, as opposed to the houses on the side I’m driving. It’s done my wigle.net stats the world of good ;)
Looks like the WUSB54G is a good, receptive bit of kit. Can’t wait for the modding!

We went over to Manchester for a D&AD lecture evening at the PrintWorks, guest speaker in question was Hillman Curtis, and damn fine it was too… but what would a trip to Manchester be without a scan?

My wife and son arrived home late Friday night, so I had a chance to do a scan on the way to the airport.

Slightly off topic, but I can still link to it tenuously… new advert for the VW Golf, dark, broody night time setting, guy drives through the streets alone in his Golf, nobody else around… hell, that could be me! You just don’t get to see the laptop on the passenger side seat!
Just for a drive? He’s defo stumblin’ for wireless and loggin’ SSIDs!

An article on The Register proclaiming WEP is dead. A group of 3 German students have refined the methods and developed a faster method for cracking using ARP packet injections…
“So to make it a little bit easier for the reader we can say that 60 seconds are enough to collect 40,000 packets and crack the key with a 50 per cent success rate.”
Basically, this kicks down the already shoddy house that is WEP encryption, and really, if you have no need to hook up your PSP and Nintendo DS,you should be using WPA authentication on your networks at least.
The obvious question, (when packet reinjection is done) when can we see this in KisMAC?
