Reinventing the weel
Tag Archives: IP address
The current internet climate is all about internet activism more commonly known as hacktivism, with the current antics of groups such as lulzsec and Anomymous in the start of this year we have decided to start covering the events.
Although it is long, it gives some fascinating insistent in to Pen-Testing.
Set up a Backtrack system that is accessible over the internet from the phone in my pocket. What can I say? I like to practice my metasploit syntax while waiting in the doctor’s office. Oh, and I’d also like to do it as cheaply as possible and in some relatively secure fashion.
How to bypass a router password
Quite often in normal home networks a small router or a home Hub is used, they aren’t really routers and are usually a hybrid of a ADSL modem and a switch, they usually come pre-packaged with a default password if it has not changed then you can normally find the password here.
But if the password has been changed then you have two options, the first being using the reset button if you have one, this will reset all the settings and you should only do this in extreme situations.
Bypassing the routers password , this can be usually accomplished with 3rd party tools, most routers use a CGI (conman gateway interface) script to protect the system , they are commonly seen on adult web sites members areas , this attack can be also used to bypass there passwords.
Step one: The Tools
This was the first tool I ever used, it introduced me to this world o so long ago. It’s old but not redundant and it works.
A word list, you will not need a user name list, just make a text file and type a list of common user names main, administrator, user, and so on.
Proxy list, you don’t need this if you are on the home network but you will need it if you are connected over the internet then you will need some lists.
Step two: Locating The Router
Eyes step open up a command prompt and type ipconfig
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
You will see commuting like this the Default Gateway is the routers IP address, told you it was simples.
If you are trying to access web site, then right click the login link and copy the link
If you are connected through the internet see this guide>
Step Three: Prepare the attack
Load the word list
Enter the proxies ( if needed)
Pass the IP address or URL in the Server box at the top.
Step Fore: Fire Everything
Click go and after some time you should get a password
