  CoronaVirus Works its Way into Computers...
Posted by: TheGalaxyNinja - 03-13-2020, 11:47 PM - Forum: General Information & News - No Replies

While hundreds of thousands of people hoard toilet paper, bread, peanut butter and jelly, some smart hackers found a way to turn mass hysteria into a hacker's tool.

Prompting users to download and run a program that displays a legitimate map from a normal site, the AZORult malware runs in the background to glean web browser information that includes user IDs, passwords, etc.

  Pour a Redbull on the Ground...MindRape (Donald Moore) is Finally at Rest
Posted by: TheGalaxyNinja - 01-25-2020, 02:55 PM - Forum: Special Posts from the Old THS Forum - No Replies

This post was originally from Gingerbread Man and can be found in the archives at: https://web.archive.org/web/201707100211...pic=5634.0
in its original format.

« on: May 25, 2016, 07:29:14 PM »

I regret to inform you that one of the Scenes dear friends and Most ardent supporters has passed away this week.

On Monday, our good friend and fellow conspirator, MindRape (Donald Moore) of the infamous Damaged Cybernetics,  finally hit the power button...and let the discs spin down.

He is survived by a wife and son, whose names are none of your f#@king business [Image: wink.gif]

MindRape had a story for everything...and I mean everything.

John McAfee..."Yeah I know him...that freakshow still owes me 20 bucks..."

Early console emulation efforts: "We hacked anything we could get a hold of. We designed new console copying rigs and coached people on how they could take control over the music and games they already payed for" .

The Warez scene... "We were not a hacking group, or a warez group...we didn't host anything copyrighted...what we had were the MEANS to liberate yourself...our stock-in-trade were the 'weapons' of the intellectually liberated...the tools to make information freely available to everyone.

NESticle... "Yeah, I formed the group that spread that one. I even hacked the source code out of the creators box and released it for free...He was a dick."

Hack the Planet... "Yep...back in '99"

And all of the stories are that much better once you find out that they are all (mostly ;P ) true.

In this world you hear some whoppers, and you get  used to just 'going with the flow' once people get to talking...It is quite the shock when someone gets done telling you that they used to be best friends with the keynote speaker, and tells you some rather embarrassing and highly unlikely story, just to turn and go go "Oh, there he is now...Let me introduce you..." just to have you hear the story he just told, but this time from John McAfees perspective of the same night....Good times.

If you played NES or SNES games in the 90s on your 386...*HE* is the reason. If you walked around in one of those ugly-ass 'illegal t-shirts' printed with the deCSS code...*HE* was a big part of that.

If you spent three hours trying to get your friends to send you a PGP email in 2000...You have MindRape to (at least partially) thank for the right to do that.

Mindrape believed more than anything, that *Information WANTS to be Free* and he spent the vast majority of his adult life making that endlessly repeated mantra more than just a clarion call for the disenfranchised...more than just a justification for a disrespect for boundaries and personal property...He treated it as a lifestyle.

It takes a great deal of effort to suppress the education of the public...and old Donnie saw the Internet (and BBs's before that) as the great equalizer...a force multiplier on par with that most egalitarian of inventions...The Colt Peacemaker.

The world is a little less interesting and a little less exciting (and probably a little bit safer [Image: wink.gif] )
without him around.

From all the boys at #emu...and this little cookie...You will be missed brother. 1337

Original reply from TAPE:
Just reading up on him, its sad to see the 0ld sk00l guys slowly disappear..

Hope he went peacefully and wishing his family well.

Original reply from r3k0hu:
Nice post - RIP MindRape

He gave us a lot, whether we knew it or not. Salute to the old skool free thinkers

  YouTube's New Terms of Service
Posted by: TheGalaxyNinja - 11-10-2019, 02:51 AM - Forum: Welcome! - Replies (3)

So YouTube is updating their Terms of Service on Dec 10th with a little bit of a twist>

Under "Accounts Suspension and Termination" there is now a clause that says: 

"Terminations by YouTube for Service Changes

YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable."

In other words... if YouTube decides they can't make money off of you, they can delete your account because of it.

Maybe it's time for a new video sharing service to step up to the plate...

Shocked BlueKeep II (also calledDejaBlue)
Posted by: TheGalaxyNinja - 10-13-2019, 10:15 PM - Forum: Welcome! - No Replies

Although this is slightly old news (from August), if you aren't paying attention to the cyber-world news, you might have missed this memo.
CVE-2019-1181 and CVE-2019-1182 target the RDS (Remote Desktop Services) of all versions of Windows 10.
Because this flaw can be used to create a worm that can then infect other computers with these security flaws.
Microsoft recommends updating to get rid of the security flaw.
Or... you could just get rid of the Microsoft RDS... or better yet, switch to Linux!
Of course, it does not affect Windows XP, so go ahead and feel safe if you are still using Windows XP!
Well feel as safe as a person in a glass house would feel living next to a rock quarry! XD

Star Pretty Quiet Right Now

Hello everyone!

It's been one crazy hectic year for me... well 2 years really!
I can't believe it's been two years since my life changed forever.
But you know, it's pushed me beyond what I thought I could do, it changed me for the better, and I learned some programming along the way!
I know it will take a while to get stuff posted up here and get the forum and site truly functional, but it will happen!
Don't just sit back and watch... take part! That's what made THS so unique before. Cool 
Hmm... might be changing those emojis soon.

Take care,

  FAQ about the THS-OS Apollo Distro
Posted by: Threadmaker - 08-20-2019, 08:48 PM - Forum: Old Distros - No Replies

Q: What is “THS-OS”?
A: THS-OS is the Top-Hat-Sec Edition of Backbox.

Q: What makes the THS-OS different from other pentesting Distros, like Backbox or Backtrack?
A: The THS-OS is a “tricked out” version of Backbox. It contains additional tools that R4V3N has put into the THS-OS that other operating systems don’t have.

Q: What version of Ubuntu does the THS-OS use?
A: It runs the same version as Backbox – Ubuntu 11. This makes it more compatible than Backtrack as Backtrack is running Ubuntu 10. Backtrack has a custom Kernel which causes further compatibility issues. 

Q: Where can I download the THS-OS?
A: See the Apollo Distro Post for the link

Q: How do I login?
A: select "other" and login as: root   The password is: teamths

Q: When I try to install, I get an "Username not valid" error
A: Run the live system. Login as root, open the terminal and type: ubiquity --no-migration-assitant <hit enter>. Then install it like you normally would.
If this does not work, you could have a corrupt version of the THS-OS. The solution to that is to re-download the THS-OS and try to make sure you are not timing out or that your internet is not going down during the download.

Q: I can’t find the Top-Hat-Sec folder on the desktop… help!?
A: You need to log in as “other” root    and put the password as teamths

Q: What is the us3r account?
A: The us3r account is a generic account created because Backbox would not allow us to create a Distro with Just a root account.  People that don’t want to log in as root can log in as us3r. The us3r account does not have the special programs that the root account does, and is more of a “blank slate” you can modify to your purposes.                       

Q: How can I delete the us3r account?
A: Ubuntu: How to Remove a User Account:  From time to time, it becomes necessary to remove a user account from your computer. Removing a user account from your Ubuntu system is a simple task that requires two separate terminal commands.
1. Open a terminal window.
2. First, you’ll need to delete the user account. Input the following command and hit Enter (change to the name of the user account that is to be removed):
sudo userdel (username)
3. Now you’ll want to delete the Home directory for the deleted user account. Input the following command and hit Enter (change to the name of the user account that is to be removed):
sudo rm -r /home// (usermame)

Q: Is the root account fully updated?
A: No. When you first install the THS-OS, you will need to run the updateme.sh script on the desktop (located under the Top-Hat-Sec folder). To do this, you will open the terminal and type in the following: cd Desktop <hit enter>    chmod 755 updateme.sh <hit enter>     ./updateme.sh <hit enter>     The update process can take quite a few minutes, so please be patience. When prompted, type in the letter y <hit enter> and wait for the update process to finish.

Q: Do I need to run the Patch as well?
A: If you would like Cowpatty installed onto the THS-OS, or if you have WepWap1.6, then YES. Otherwise No.  The update should be run 1st before running the Patch!

Q: Where can I download the THS-OS Patch?
A: The directions and site are located here: http://top-hat-sec.com/forum/index.php?topic=680.0   

Q:  Are we allowed to do apt-get dist-upgrade command on the THS-OS?
A: Yes as we did not change the Kernel of Backbox. However, we do not recommend updating Firefox as that will prevent some of the custom programs from running correctly.

Q: Do you have full personal support for your THS-OS?
A: No. We can help out if you have an issue with a specific THS-OS feature, but if it is a problem related to Backbox or Ubuntu we ask that you use the THS forum and the Backbox/Ubuntu forums. Using the search bar on the THS forum can lead to many solved issues with the THS-OS.

Q: How come I can’t change my volume when I click on the speaker?
A: The speaker icon is a part of the Backbox operating system that doesn’t function properly.  You can run a script to make it work in root, but at this time, I do not know what script this would be.
To adjust your sound, go to the terminal and type: alsamixer         
This will bring you to the screen where you can adjust the volume using the arrow keys (over to move to the next bar, up and down to adjust the sound)
UPDATE: Alsamixer Desktop Icon - http://top-hat-sec.com/forum/index.php?t...;topicseen

Q: I have a Broadcom b43 wireless card. How come I can’t connect to the internet?
A:  Backbox/Ubuntu 11 has a driver issue with Broadcom. To fix this, you will need to be connected to the internet either with a cable or an external wireless card.
After you are connected to the internet, open up the terminal and type in the following command:
 apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
Type y and hit enter when prompted.

Q: How come WePpy and WapPy do not work in the THS-OS?
A: It can take 4 days to make our programs compatible with the THS-OS. Because the WepWap program was made compatible, WePpy and WapPy are on the backburner at least until after the SQL injection course is released.

Q: Why won’t my WepWap Program work in the THS-OS?
A: There are a few reasons your WepWap Program may not work.
     1)   You have WepWap1.5 which only works in Backtrack.    Solution: You will need WepWap1.6
     2)   You have not downloaded  and installed the Patch 2.0.  Solution: Download Patch 2.0
     3)   If neither of these work, see FAQ about WepWap (in process and not posted at this time).

Q: How do I run Metasploit on the THS-OS?
A: Go into the menu, services, postgresql and start postgresql. It opens up the console, wait a few seconds, and then it will have postgresql started. From there, create a new user and database. Then open msfconsole and connect.

Q: Why won't my Alfa AWUS036NH work in Linux?
A: Because it is not compatible. However the Alfa AWUS036H  (no "N") should work just fine.

  Apollo Distro
Posted by: Threadmaker - 08-20-2019, 08:47 PM - Forum: Old Distros - No Replies

This contains the link to the Apollo Distro. This distro is based off of Backbox from back in the day.
To the best of my knowledge, Apollo doesn't work properly anymore.
I am not including the majority of the old troubleshooting problems at this time (apart from the faq).
Mostly I'm just posting this link because it was the first distro THS ever made.
