Introducing ENCOSH

dc414 is happy to bring you ENCOSH, a online encoding and hashing app. You just feed ENCOSH a string and it will hash it using MD4, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, LM, NTLM and encodes it using Base64, ROT13, HEX, URL, RawURL then spits them all out for you. I had used it as a personal tool for a long time and got lots of use out of it for sql injections and what not so im sure someone else will as well, so enjoy 🙂

Thanks ngharo

Mr. ngharo just finished up a big long over due server upgrade for dc414! The online tools are down yet but i should be able to get them back online within the next few days, and now that we are on debian expect many more to come 🙂 So if anyone sees ngharo be sure to thank him for his hard work!

phpMyAdmin upgrade script.

I got sick of upgrading phpMyAdmin at work every time a new version came out so i made this little script to do it for me. All you have to do is pass the .gz download url to it.

Here is the code:

upgrade() {
    wget $1 -O phpmyadminupgrade.tar.gz
    tar zxvf $FILE
    FOLDER=`echo $FILE | awk -F".tar" '{print $1}'`
    cp /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ ~/phpMyAdmin*
    rm -rf /usr/share/phpmyadmin/*
    cp -R ~/phpMyAdmin*/* /usr/share/phpmyadmin/
    chmod -R 777 /usr/share/phpmyadmin/
    chmod 644 /usr/share/phpmyadmin/
    rm -rf ~/phpMyAdmin*
    rm ~/$FILE
    echo "Done!!"
    exit 1

usage() {
    echo "Use this script to update phpmyadmin"
    echo "to run:"
    echo "./ url"
    exit 1

if [ -z "$1" ]; then
    upgrade $1

Past that into “”
chmod a+x it and run it as root like so:

user@user:~$ sudo ./ url

NOTE: This bash script assumes phpMyAdmin’s html files, including live in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ and that you are running this script in your home directory.

Sweet DEFCON19 stuff and pwnage.

Got some cool shit at DEFCON, here are some pics of the stuff i got. Here is the DEFCON19 cd iso, and here is your mom 😛

While at DEFCON we ran a little hack contest, back at the riv amongst our selves “me, ngharo, black rat, and alex”, to see who could bypass the hotels internet billing system 🙂 I would like to say that i came out on top as leet hacker supreme by getting online first. Yeah im the best hacker ever 😛 dont freak out, we are good people and didn’t actually use the hotels internet in this manner, i personally opted for a slightly more secure method and tethered my phone. ok thats it peace.

From DEFCON to the clink.

Well DEFCON19 was awesome and we got some cool stuff that i would love to show you, but the cops have it all! I can talk more about that shit later. We had a great time at DEFCON as always, our talk went good and we met lots of cool people. ngh and i will not be at the next dc414 meeting because we have to go to Iowa to get our stuff back, but the meeting should still be poppin so stop in and say hi! 🙂

Thats right bitches, dc414 swag!

So I been hard at work getting ready to make some shirts, learning how to do it “That was a trip”, getting all the shit i need to do so, and trying to find the room to make them in my little house. Finally it is all paying off, I give you dc414 swag 🙂

They come black or white, $15 each, you can order them by emailing me or at the meetings. Five dollars of every purchase goes to your choice of 4 charities or dc414. The choices are EFF, WikiLeaks, Phone cards for deployed troops, or Wounded Warriors and their families, or dc414. So get a few shirts now! 😛
