Hispagatos

Hacking the Future

Our new adventure and projects

Hello everyone! I'm super happy to announce an array off changes to hispagatos, new members, new projects, new site! now based on Hugo a static web site builder under golang!(that I been falling in love more and more) and after some other minor stuff I myself started a security company, is been a long way

new members:

  • m11es
  • Thibaud
  • Trizz(was a member before back in the day but we recently got connected again)

Another very cool interesting project we have.. I always been interested and involved with malware analysis and like any curious person I like to know what OS's and devices are infected and by what.. so honeypots are the solution for that, I do not believe honeypots are a solution for all solutions but I do like the flexibelity it gives you... I can monitor in the wild what script kiddies, bots, malware and other types of attacks, I can find out for example that there are still windows XP computers out there.. and I can peek into stats and see what areas they are located at.. and much more ... ;) for a curious person this is great.. here is our LIVE ATTACK MAP based on the honeymap project and more directly involved with The Moderm Honey Network that we use, and we have added some other features to it.

I personally are moderating HackBloc" on reddit and some other interesting groups, come join us!

And for the last part, I been doing freelancing here and there, mostly during 2012-2014 it was fun! very scary, no healthcare, and lots of taxes.. but I really enjoyed it, so I recently decided to go LLC so started Stealthy-CyberSecurity LLC the site is not yet even 15% done, is mostly fillings as of April 4th.

Another project we trying to init, is the DefCon415 group, and you can chat with us at chat.binaryfreedom.info ask for an invite, this is still a long shot, mostly because it does not depends only on us but other people to help and contribute... but I will be updating the blog more from now on.

and for the very last point, I want to salute my good friends Pedro, from Alicante. Josh, from Boston, Luis from Boston I miss you guys and all the real underground hacking scene out there and the real anarcho-hackers and cyberpunks

BlackArch full install on a usb 3.0

what you need:

  • one usb 3.0 stick with at least 100G to be able to install all your tools and personal scripts
  • another usb any type or DVD/CD, this is for the install
  • laptop or desktop computer
  • latest blackarch live cd iso file HERE

Why? I do pentesting and linux forensics, I need always a couple USB drives with clean and secure usb sticks with me. why USB 3? well, the speed of course, you wont even notice you are working from a usb. you could tecnically do this on a usb 2.x but be ready to have a slow system.


Step 1 burn the downloaded blackarch GNU/Linux live ISO into the generic USB stick or CD/DVD, this will create a live cd/usb for you to boot into.

sudo dd bs=512M if=file.iso of=/dev/sdX

change X for the target drive, usb or cd/dvd letter, example /dev/sdd Step 2 Go to your laptop or desktop and boot into the BlackArch GNU/Linux live cd.
Step 3 When booted log in with username root and password blackarch right click on the desktop for a menu, find "terminals" and open one.
Step 4 Connect your USB 3.x stick into your desktop or laptop, make sure it detects it and write down the device name. dmsg

make sure you do write down the device name, if not you could delete the local HD instead of writing to the USB!!!

for the lastest version of blackarch-install, you can configure the network, that is out of scope but most likely a simple dhcp command will do. then: sudo pacman -S blackarch-install-scripts

now lets start the instalation: sudo blackarch-install

from here on you can just follow the instructions on the blackarch website, when it ask for what device to do the instalation to, enter the USB 3.x stick device, for example /dev/sdb


Just follow the instalation instructions HEREthey are very easy, just make sure you install to the right device!!

note: if you running this on virtualbox later on, you prob have to run “VBoxClient-all && xrandr –output VGA-0 –auto” so the resolution auto changes when incrementing the window size. note: more to be added, contact me for suggestions. handle = [rek2,rek2wilds,rek2gnulinux]; channel(“#blackarch”) on @freenode

The Day we Fight Back

We are proud to be taking part in the Day we Fight Back action across cyberspace.

DEAR USERS OF THE INTERNET,

In January 2012 we defeated the SOPA and PIPA censorship legislation with the largest Internet protest in history. Today we face another critical threat, one that again undermines the Internet and the notion that any of us live in a genuinely free society: mass surveillance.

In celebration of the win against SOPA and PIPA two years ago, and in memory of one of its leaders, Aaron Swartz, we are planning a day of protest against mass surveillance, to take place this February 11th.

Together we will push back against powers that seek to observe, collect, and analyze our every digital action. Together, we will make it clear that such behavior is not compatible with democratic governance. Together, if we persist, we will win this fight.

Looking for collaborators with Hispagatos for CTP games

Capture the Flag Games!

yes you hear well… have this in mind for some time, and looking for collaboratos in Boston and Barcelona to start brainstorming CTP competitions at first locally then between city’s.

.

For this to be a reality we will need some help on both cities, it really does not take much, to make it short, we will meetup online(IRC) discuss ideas, places(hacker/makers spaces) were we could create such events, rules and other related topics.

For more info and to voluntier please email cfernandezlinux AATT gmail DDOOTT com

Introduction to Ethical Hacking

Event: Iniciación al Ethical Hacking

Start: 06/11/2013 6:00 pm

End: 06/11/2013 7:30 pm

Makers of Barcelona.

http://www.mob-barcelona.com/event/iniciacion-al-ethical-hacking/

Una introducción al Hacking Ético, el cual consiste en un ataque controlado a los sistemas informáticos y/o de comunicaciones de una empresa u organización empleando los mismos medios que un usuario malicioso. Se llama “Hacking Ético” debido a que las técnicas, pensamientos y metodologías usadas son similares a las empleadas por los hackers, pero el único objetivo es comprobar el estado real y actual de la seguridad. No confundir con auditorias donde se usan herramientas preparadas para “testear” la vulnerabilidad de los servicios del cliente y reportar el error. Como Hacker Ético, lo primero que debes aprender es a pensar como un hacker malicioso, con mucha creatividad y a no dar nada por supuesto. Durante el workshop abordaremos ciertas teorías y herramientas y si es posible, también vulnerabilidades ya conocidas, para que la gente se inicie.

A bit of our History

We go all the way back to 2001, when Christian Fernandez and Jeff Grant both very active in Free Software activism formed the “Boston MetroWest GNU/Linux user group” we had a very good success in organizing not so serious meetups in bars and restaurants.. some people like Karl hiramoto join us, we tried to be the less formal of the Worcester and Boston LUG’s and we were good at it :)

A couple of years laters our mailing list was flooded by political talk about software freedom, digital rights, decentralization of the internet and the world arround us.. so at the moment we switched from been a LUG to be a full force activist group, caled the “Independent Free Software Activists”IFSA.

We had actual real social justice activist to join us, so after a couple years we had no doub.. we were a strong and committed group, We meet more people like Angela Pineros Christopher Parker Danny DeborahRingo and many more.. and this is when BinaryFreedom was born!

We had a lot of press, and we started to join with the FSF John Sullivan and work closely, while they were doing for most part at the time the office and tech work, we were in the streets, protesting and giving out CD’s and stickers, here a small interview from the time and an example of one of our actions

After a couple years, the FSF started to do more street actions and we kind of just joined them in full force, we also started to do social justice activism and anti-war actions but later on, most of us left to other places in the planet.. others got married and had kids..like Jeff Grant or moved to San Francisco like Christian Fernandez That period of activism was great! later on Christian Fernandez started to get deep into hacking and hacktivism, moving what he learn from the last period to online activism, and now he is moving around the world, at the moment in Barcelona, yet starting another groub paralell to BinaryFreedom to bring together great people and great ideas… Hispagatos LABS. there is no clear road yet other than getting a bunch of people together, the road they take is still to be seen.
