Def Con Update

Hon1nbo here reporting from Def Con 24. I am taking a break from exploding at “The Box,” and sending this to post via raven carriers.

I got a Caezar’s Challenge badge, and whilst I don’t care to spend all of my time cracking the challegnes for the party, I want to give the person who dropped it a piece of my mind since he broke $150 worth of locks on the table in the process.

If you see someone handing out caezars badges say something. Tweet at me.

Cheers,

Def Con 24

As I write this post, sitting on a plane with my bits flowing through the ether that is tunnels and routers of the networking abyss, I ponder my previous years attending Def Con. My first year, DC 19, was fun with the tamper evident competition yet I could have done more had I a full tool set. So I brought one this year. Pelican makes neat tool chests, so I may be wandering around with it at points.

Anyone who wants to say high feel free to call if you see me. Twitter may be the fastest way to get my attention if you can’t find me.

I have to run fo the moment. The flight attendents are complaining that a purple tail is wagging into the person next to me. I have tried explaining that it must be an optical illusion, as there is no tail, but to no avail.

Homemade Photo Emulsion

(from the Project Archives)

Back when I was in high school, I did a lot of darkroom photography. At one point, I decided to make my own photographic emulsion. I wanted to coat canvas with it and expose my prints to it. With a little bit of chemical preparation, it ended up being a very simple procedure.

Peach EXE Template

I uploaded the first of my old Peach fuzzer templates to my Github account. This template is for the Microsoft PE/COFF 32bit EXE executable standard. I originally made this at my super-secret-alter-ego job almost 4 years ago. However, we did not have the resources to devote to running it at the time. Should not be too hard to update for 64bit and other newer attributes. May run it on some windows 10 VMs, or through some AVs such as Symantec.

Serving malware via physical legal documents

I have decided to post about a personal trick I created and have used for quite a while. Given that most process servers are private entities, rather than actual members of the court, they are ready for hire without filing an actual legal process. Thus, it is possible for an official looking person to arrive at a target and present the payload in person without ever leaving a trace of your identity. This physical legal document has successfully gained my administrator credentials from targets that normally have a high level of security awareness, and usually catch phishing attempts.

Site Changes

The site is getting worked on again.

However, since i like to move fast and break things I am bypassing QA right now and, as long as my content is there, letting things happen. So formatting may look weird here and there but unless a link is actually broken, or content missing, please do not bother telling me as I likely know (and am in the middle of fiddling with it).

Mobile Ham Radio Microphone Hack

(from the project archive)

I wanted to install the option of an alternate Microphone for a Yaesu mobile radio which uses a modular (RJ11) type hand mic, whilst keeping the original microphone DTMF Functions.

I made this modification because I want to use the Headset from my Hand Held Transceiver, a Pryme SPM-1500 Throat Microphone, with my mobile unit for a hands free operation. This would also block out noice form my car stereo, or noise from other influences like a rolled down window.

Hard Drive Window

(from the project archives)

This project was a simple Hard Drive Window. Originally was going to be used for another project involving lasers, mirrors, and the moving platter/drive head. However, I could never find enough drives with similar head mechanics for that project to see the light of day.

Capacitor Pulse Bank (v2)

(another project from the archive)

I built a capacitor pulse bank a while back. It was installed into a large suitcase, and was using Electrolytic capacitors (so no super-fast rise times, but a fairly decent amount of energy density for the cost).

Caps: 6x caps rated 5600uF @ 500V ==> E =(1/2)*C*(V^2) = 4.2 kiloJoules of energy.

The Pulse Bank was designed to fit into a Pelican 1600 case for durability and ease of transit.  The case included a wired remote control, the capacitors, and a triggered spark gap. It was fairly simplistic in design, but useful for a time. While most of my project videos and files were lost in a set of failures long ago (who would have expected an entire RAID 6 and backup system to go within the same week), these photos are here at least as what was recoverable.
