Hacking / Sploit video

Heres a collection of hacks / exploit videos ive collected from around the web. These are real hacks that work. Some are exciting and have cool music, others are boring, slow but very detailed.

This one is a basic mysql injection attack on a php, then they eventually get all info and root access.

Here they use a IIS frontpage exploit,upload ssh client to ssh into at any later time
shell, nmap, metaspoit, iis exploit, ssh exploits, alot more

Here they use kismac to crack wireless encryption.

Here is a basic bluetooth hack

Here is sql injection of helpdesk software, done in url of browser then uses tools bsqlbf, very detailed, very slow

Web 2.0

Nobody has been able to clearly define web 2.0. It sounds more like a markeiting buzzword, but its meaning hasnt quite been established. To me it sounds like the usage of various resources on the web as a platform.

I think this sums it up.

Web 2.0 is the era when people have come to realize that it's not the software that enables the web that matters so much as the services that are delivered over the web. Web 1.0 was the era when people could think that Netscape (a software company) was the contender for the computer industry crown; Web 2.0 is the era when people are recognizing that leadership in the computer industry has passed from traditional software companies to a new kind of internet service company. The net has replaced the PC as the platform that matters, just as the PC replaced the mainframe and minicomputer.

Here is an example.

This article is an attempt to clarify just what we mean by Web 2.0.In our initial brainstorming, we formulated our sense of Web 2.0 by example:
Web 1.0 Web 2.0
DoubleClick --> Google AdSense
Ofoto --> Flickr
Akamai --> BitTorrent
mp3.com --> Napster
Britannica Online --> Wikipedia
personal websites --> blogging
evite --> upcoming.org and EVDB
domain name speculation --> search engine optimization
page views --> cost per click
screen scraping --> web services
publishing --> participation
content management systems --> wikis
directories (taxonomy) --> tagging ("folksonomy")
stickiness --> syndication
An finally a picture.

if your having problem connecting to a remote msde 2000 with enterprise manager, you need to do this.

Execute this program

If you want mixed mode authentication, do this
