Graphical Network Simulator – GNS3

GNS3 – Graphical Network Simulator

“GNS3 is a graphical network simulator which provides you a real lab environment for learning and testing complex networks. With this tool you do not need to have dedicated network hardware devices. You can design and configure virtual networks on a traditional PC or a Raspberry Pi, and simulate in the closest possible way to how the real networks perform.

If you want to design and test your automation system network, GNS3 can just work fine for you. It allows you to run many virtual hosts with operating systems such as Linux, Windows, MacOS X or FreeBSD.”

It’s designed to detect an implant called Doublepulsar, which is delivered by many of the Windows-based exploits found in the leak and can be used to load other malware.”

Hack the Air Force!

“SAN FRANCISCO (AFNS) — The Air Force is inviting vetted computer security specialists from across the U.S. and select partner nations to do their best to hack some of its key public websites.

“Neofetch is a CLI system information tool written in BASH. Neofetch displays information about your system next to an image, your OS logo, or any ASCII file of your choice. The main purpose of Neofetch is to be used in screenshots to show other users what OS/Distro you’re running, what Theme/Icons you’re using etc.

Neofetch is highly customizable through the use of command line flags or the user config file. There are over 50 config options to mess around with and there’s the print_info() function and friends which let you add your own custom info.
