Uninformed: Informative Information for the Uninformed

Vol 8» 2007.Sep


The author would like to thank a few different people for the massive amount of help. Jon Ellch taught me how to do wireless injection and driver auditing. His wife explained public key cryptography to me (``You see, its really just a complex math problem with REALLY big numbers''). Josh Wright and Mike Kershaw wrote and released LORCON, which is the basis for everything I have done. Rob Graham is awesome. HD Moore, Matt Miller, and the Metasploit project provide a simple to use, extensible exploit framework that can bring things like driver vulnerabilities to the masses. Porting this exploit to Metasploit was pretty much a snap. Almost all of the Metasploit examples for the Atheros overflow were derived from HD Moore's fuzz_beacon.rb script. Rich Mogull provided edits and advice.
