Default insecure.org

has anyone been to this site before, what do you think about it? They offer a program called Nmap which is used for administrators,auditors and hackers. I think it free and its open source so you cant beat that. check out the site if you haven't already. www.insecure.org

Nmap is a port scanner... it's used for checking ranges of IP addresses for open ports and hence vulnerable machines...

Insecure.org is a good resource that I'f used before... however for checking at home I still think you can't really beat grc.com

"Hack the gibson" is all that comes to my head when you say that :P and we will break into the system and fly around in this nifty, conveniently made OpenGL Directory system where we have to FLY space shuttles around this computer. Oh ***spoiler*** the password is "God".

If by hacker you mean programmer, then yes, I own my own Free Lance company (buisness is bad, but what can you expect out of an 18 year old who is an entering freshman in Nano-Technology). Have I been sent to Norway to work with a team on a security system? Yes. Was paid $10k plus expenses. Do I know how to work my way around a system, and other peoples, yes. Am I a hacker with bad intentions, no.

Ok, answer your question?

Oh wait, I don't use Windows so I don't know, I haven't worked in Windows for <b> years </b>. I use FreeBSD.

hence the avatar?

why don't you use a decent UNIX system like solaris?

/me giggles

There is no real way to skin the CMD, you can change the foreground and back ground colours, but thats pretty boring really... there is no way to get anything near as richer colours as there is in a linux shell.

If at all possible try to stay away from red hat, RPM based distros really aren't that great.
