Hacking

I've had a guy who to his credit has been getting away with using my wifi.

I had it password(ed) but it was my fault and I only had it on default passwords.

I'm still letting him connect and letting him think he's getting away with it.

Is there anything I could do to disuade him from using my service.

Malicious or fun any suggestions.

BTW I use ubuntu linux

Change your password?
#2
Why arn't you using a random password on WPA mode?

Use this:

I will change my password after I've a little bit of fun

Yes that does seem a given, but you see he's downloaded over 3gb on my connection. I want to kind of teach him a lesson.

Even though it is me infact who has been taught in this occasion I want to do something to assert a little revenge

I want some fun ideas maybe to spook

switch the router off randomnly when he's on it

I don't really know much about wireless connections and this is probably a daft question but how do you someone else is using your connection and how do you know when he is using it?
#6
Does he have a wife? Could you get his computer to start dowloading some p0rn videos? :giggle:
#7
There is software about to let u host fake websites internally, routing them through to hotmail etc.

The idea of that was from scammers sending u e-mails with links that load spyware that effect hosts file to redirect you to public fake sites online.

Doing this is as good as fraud, but could get you access to all their passwords though ifthey use it comprehensively enough.

You should change the key now. Before he uses your ip on god knows what sites or traffic.

Is what not illegal?

Unauthorised access to another persons/companies computer system without permission is illegaly.
Full Stop.

You could install a keylogger, find his passwords, then send raunchy emails to his wifes friends (humina, humina) :giggle: :giggle:
#14
keylogger needs to be local, on the machine he is using

As for http logging, most passwords are over encrypted pages so not possible.

Hence the need for fake sites on encryption you can decrypt to find the passwords if he enters them.

Allowing someone else to use your connection without seeing the sites they use or without knowing them is extremely stupid though and asking yourself to get in trouble really.
#15
looks like your only option is to knock his door and confront him....threaten him with a date with a knuckle sandwich unless he makes a donation to a charity of your choice..your wallet preferably...of course if he's a BIG guy ignore this advice!!
#16
ok, I've a wireless router, running 4 laptops, psp, wii and a ds, how do I set up password or encryption or whatever it is to them all?

Emma is kinda right, it would be as illegal to hack into his PC as it is for him to hack into your network.

But surely if it's hosting it internally, as mentioned with the Hotmail scam, etc, then you aren't accessing his PC. He's accessing the fake sites on yours.

If you put stuff on his PC then that would be illegal, but if there were some way to make him download something via some kind of re-direct then I don't think it is... he's the one accessing your PC and doing the illegal act.

change your ssid and your password NOW and stop broadcasting your ssid if i was you. if the guy downloads some pedophile type porn or other illegal stuff then you will be the one that gets done for it as it will be traced back to your connection and you will be held accountable.

Read my post further up.

All routers have wireless security tab.
Create a very random key using http://www.kurtm.net/wpa-pskgen/
Enter it as WPA key on your wireless settings.
Save the random key to a text file on a usb pendrive.
Use the pendrive on all wireless machines to use that router, result = secure wireless that would take months to crack (and nothing stopping you changing your key every month)
(e-mailing the key while unlikely to leak wouldn't be very wise and it won't kill you to take the key to each machine on your pendrive)

Couldn't agree more, leaving it open will be as good as illegal soon too really as it leaves your connection to be used by all sorts of criminals and possibly without a trace.
#22
"There have been incidences where paedophiles deliberately leave their wireless networks open so that, if caught, they can say that is wasn't them that used the network for illegal purposes.
Such a defence would hold little water as the person installing the network, be they a home user or a business, has ultimate responsibility for any criminal activity that takes place on that network, whether it be launching a hack attack or downloading illegal pornography.

i have a netgear router to run my sons pc and laptop, i have no passwords on it!, you have me worried now :-(

#29
you should have the option to set an ssid and then wep key protect your logon and you can go into router security to stop broadcasting your ssid (doing this will prevent other people knowing your ssid making it harder to hack your network, unless they know your ssid and your password they wont be able to logon to it.)
#30
:oops: think i'll just unplug it
#31
IMHO wireless access to the router settings should be turned off, every wireless home should have at least 1 cat5/6 ethernet network cable to keep the settings access physically closed to within the house...

Can you transfer a txt file to them and copy/paste it?

Not sure all of those do WPA either.

unsecure is dangerous/stupid
WEP can be cracked in minutes.

WPA or no wireless imo :)
#34
I have no security on mine... :?

I am aware of it all, but when I had security it was a mess about to get the PCs to stay configured, although that did seem to be down to a dodgy network card/utility.

On the other hand, the people living near me are all elderly and don't have computers. The only exception being my neighbour but he's so lazy I doubt he'd be bothered to bother connecting to my network anyway.

duck that doesn;t stop someone wardriving with netstumbler and a gps device, just driving around logging everything the wireless see's including your wireless

Uploading that information to google map and sharing that map information on a website with your unsecured wireless location on the internet for millions to see :)

Nah, we don't get "people" here.

Seen the League of Gentlemen? It's not as quiet as that at all, but you get the idea.

For those of you who don't like the idea of directly altering your security settings on your wireless router or don't know how. I strongly suggest you get the following piece of software. It is free forever unless you need additional features or need to connect more than one PC/Laptop to the network. All features are free for the first month so at least you can try it.

[url]www.networkmagic.com[/url]

It is one of only three pieces of software I have bought in twenty years of computing !

Very user friendly, sets up printer sharing, file sharing, remote file access and the latest version will even produce reports about what your network users are looking at, useful if you have kids online.

It will easily lead you through network security setup, if you haven't got an ultra secure network after using it you might as well go back to pen and paper.
