Here is a list of e-books – direct link to IP-subnetting Tutorial…long enough to be a small e-book, rather than a tutorial.
Astalavista – You’ll find links for news, affiliates, a place to submit your programs and/or tutorials. Go way down
to see the tuts. An impressive selection of topics: access control (firewalls, social engineering), miscellaneous, crypto, software
cracking, ICQ, IRC, online security, intrusion detection, chat systems, hacking/security groups, protocols, denial of service, OS‘s, network auditing, securing papers, and the basics. – over 500 e-books, listed by category…programming languages, database, internet, application, OS’s, networks, sci&tech.
Freeskills – features e-books and tutorials, with the intention of teaching people IT skills. It also has job listings and courses. Despite the name, it’s not free. The books links eventually lead you to the order form on, and to take the courses, you must be a member, which is 99$.

The Pirates guide to DoSing the MPAA

The pirates guide to DoSing the MPAA

If you haven’t heard about the attack then you can read more about it here, I’m going to discuss what it is and how it is done.

What is a Dos, a Dos is a Denial of Services attack it basically stops web servers from running buy telling the web servers that lots of users want to access the web site, they are a common method of attacking a web site and are use buy the “hacker” to extort money or just to get some Lultz.

When does a DoS become a DDoS? The extra D is for distributed so you now have a distributed denial of sevices attack, they can be distributed by many means such as spy bots or throw forums when groups of people want to take down a site such as the recent anti piracy attacks.

This is the most simple and will be what I will demonstrate in this tutorial.

There are lots of tools to perform this task such as the SkyNet Dos tool or the LOIC low orbit ion canon.

  1. Get the LOIC.
  2. Type in the web addresses URL or the IP address of the target.


There are more options such as UDP or TCP attacks, it also allows you to target specific port such as an IRC room or a particular web service.

Science that’s not hacking right? Wrong!! Buy its very definition Science is hacking, that and the fact that when the zombie apocalypse arrives the difference between knowing and not knowing will affect your chances of survival.

To aid in the Science Learning’s for Make Benefit of the world I will give you some spectacular practical nerd loving Science hack YouTube channels.

And in no particular order at all:

How to bypass a router password

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.

The attack we will be using is a brute force dictionary attack ,this isn’t hacking in it’s normal sense mearly an attack using a overwhelming number of user names and 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.

Access Diver

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. . . . . . . . . . . :

Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

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

Fire Every ting

Fire Every ting

Click go and after some time you should get a password

Auto Clickable URL’s in PHP

Php logo with lower text

Image via Wikipedia

Here’s something that as a PHP programmer I have found useful when writing code for a website which often refers to sources using links… It automatically parses URL‘s into clickable anchors without needing to use any actual tags – you just write the URL as it looks and it will convert it for you. It’s great for people who don’t really know about such things as HTML or BBCode and I have found it useful so if your a programmer feel free to use it if you wish.

function makeClickableLinks($text) {
$text = eregi_replace('(((f|ht){1}tp://)[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&amp;//=]+)', '<a href="\\1">\\1</a>', $text);
$text = eregi_replace('([[:space:]()[{}])(www.[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&amp;//=]+)', '\\1<a href="http://\\2">\\2</a>', $text);
$text = eregi_replace('([_\.0-9a-z-]+@([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,3})', '<a href="mailto:\\1">\\1</a>', $text);
return $text;

Then when you wish to refer to it use this:

$string = "Go to this URL -";
