How to be a Guaranteed Hacker Legally

Okay..You have heard of them,everybody have heard of them..Hackers are thereceh_logo. With so much coverage media gives to them,you probably have the idea what they can do. Lemme clear it up for you first, Hackers are not bad. Crackers are bad. Hackers are information seekers not malicious destroyers,Crackers are the evil cyber wizards and Hackers are often misunderstood under this whole dilemma. To be a Hacker is a matter of pride,of being skillful enough to counter attack and foil the attacks of network attackers.
Ever wanted to have the knowledge they possess ? Yep,You can be a Hacker,that too LEGALLY.The basic methodology goes as if you want to stop crackers or cyber bandits from invading your network, first you've got to invade their minds.Organizations like ECCOUNCIL and various other universities provide courses and training in ethical hacking. Once you complete the course and pass the exam,you will be an Ethical Hacker. An ethical hacker is a computer and network expert who attacks a security system legally on behalf of its owners, seeking vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit.Ethical hackers are in great demand nowadays,According to the EC-Council, there is a high demand for certified hackers in the corporate sector, particularly in the banking, telecommunications, petrochemical, fast moving consumer goods and manufacturing industries, and also in government agencies like utilities and transportation.
Here is how you can be an Ethical Hacker -
You must have basic knowledge of computers and networks and must have exposure to common programming languages like C/C++/Visual Basic etc.
Then you can seek certifications like CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) by ECCOUNCIL, CISE (Certified Information Security Expert) or CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) offered at prestigious institutes at your country. Also, these certifications are legalized by government and the individual are expected to provide identity proofs.
You can begin your training in these course (usually last from 2 months to 6 months) and then you have to pass an online exam conducted by respective certification authorities. If you get passed,you will be awarded your certification and You will be a certified Ethical Hacker.
You can start and shape up your career as a Computer Security Expert or just go on securing your own networks and gain knowledge.

I m currently pursuing Btech in Computer Science and Engineering and I will be doing CISE from Delhi and the CEH to be on my way of being a Computer Security Expert. Its my calling,Go for yours..

Using 3D Analyzer to play games without graphic Card

Graphics card must have pixel shader ability of 1.1 or greater for program to run.”I ran Devil May Cry 3 using 3D analyzer

or

The brand new game you just bought launches,but gives you a black screen and nothing else ? Or maybe you can hear some sounds but no video ?

have this ever happened to You ? Ah Well If Yes,then you are stuck like me (period) ,just like you I too don't have a proper graphics solution (read:onboard graphics) or if you do have,you are having a primitive card. Well,here comes our savior from Tommti systems - The 3D Analyzer Tool. 3D analyzer was created and refined to overcome limitations posed by modern 3D Games and other Applications on several current mainstream 3D Cards.

Using 3D Analyzer Run Next gen games without graphic Card

3D Analyzer sort of "Tricks" your system into thinking it has a Nvidia, or even ATI graphics card! Of course, your games and applications will run in the mode they usually will (with the default graphics and such). If you have an Intel like me, you can now play games like "Devil May Cry 3", “The Witcher”, “Resident Evil 4” and  or any new gen games which earlier demanded of graphics card.I played my Favorites using it and I m thoroughly satisfied with this tool. You can fiddle with various options to mess with it,and get different games to work with.

Re4 running on 3D analyser on my PC

I played “Prince Of Persia-Sands of Time” which earlier never ran on my PC,and thrashed some demons in “Devil may Cry 3”,killed ganados in RE4 and even ran Hitman Blood and money with it. In all forms, I m thoroughly satisfied with it and recommended it to you,If you are low on money like me (sarcasm again..).

So..you can download it from here – 3DANALYZER

Make Free Phone Calls

Okay guys..I m back. My exams are over and I hope I will be getting good grades this time as usual. Last month I talked to  Make Free Phone Callsmy brother who is in Florida,America. And it took good 50 bucks to have a short talk with him. Being a technogeek,I stumbled across various softwares/systems and sites to make free calls to America,and have found pretty good alternative to paid calls.Okay,softwares like Skype do exists,but they drain system resources. I found two browser enabled solutions which will allow you to call your near and dear ones.I hope you too would like to make free calls..

GizmoCallCall free using GizmoCall

The first service is GizmoCall,which lets you make free phone calls right from your Web browser.Tt works right inside your browser-any browser, on any system (Windows, Mac, or Linux).You supply the headset, Gizmo supplies the VoIP. The only catch was that the freebie calls were limited to other GizmoCall users and a smattering of toll-free numbers, other VoIP services, and college campuses. 

As with Skype, if you want to call landlines and cell phones, you'll need to purchase blocks of call-out credit (which start at $10 for 500 minutes). You can also send SMS messages for about 7 cents apiece, great if you're traveling abroad and don't want to pay exorbitant roaming rates.

Hold on a sec,I said that was free…Keep reading folks..

Calling America

Enter CallingAmerica, an ad-heavy but a free alternative to GizmoCall. Like GizmoCall, CallingAmerica requires no software; all you need is your Web browser.

In fact, you don't even need to sign up; Just enter the phone number for anywhere in the U.S. or Canada and click FreeCall Now.Enter the security captcha code and you are good to go. You can make an unlimited number of calls this way, but each one is limited to two minutes. Also,By registering (also free), YOU can call for 15 minutes.Free calls anywhere in America using CallingAmerica

However, here's the rub: In order to register, you have to agree to receive e-mails from CallingAmerica "and its sponsors." Spam alert! . I recommended using your fake Ids..

Also,whether you register or not, you'll have to spend 10 seconds looking at an ad before your call goes through. But see the bright side,there's no advertising on the call itself.

The call quality is excellent and I found that I didn’t mind the 10-second "ad delay" one bit.

Okay..this is a pretty basic calling service,but if you just need to make a quick call, there's no cheaper solution.

I hope it comes soon to India..

Happy-Calling..Happy Calling

Windows 7 will be offered in 6 flavors – An Overview

Despite great user feedback to Microsoft to craft one version of Windows 7, Microsoft is continuing down the path it followed with XP and Vista by releasing multiple versions of Windows 7. As Windows General Manager Mike Ybarra has said "We have over 1 billion customers. It's hard to satisfy all of them [with a single version] " He added "There are vocal customers who want every feature, and more regular consumers who say 'I want a version that can grow with me.' "
windows 7
Windows 7 will be released in 6 flavors,to be precise.But as most users only need to decide between two versions,Microsoft commented that 80 percent of users will be deploying Windows 7 Home Premium (consumers) or Windows 7 Professional (small businesses, remote workers) which is where Microsoft will put most of its marketing power.
Here is an overview of Windows 7 versions -
Windows 7 Starter
This is the bare-bones, 32-bit only version of Windows 7 intended for users in developing countries.It is designed for  lightweight, portable netbooks,to serve the most basic computing needs.It will be devoid of the Aero Glass GUI that is included in all other versions of Windows 7 (except Windows 7 Home Basic) and can only run three applications at a time. It will include a revamped taskbar,jump lists, Windows Media Player, the file-sharing feature Home Group and other basic features such as Action Center and Backup and Restore.Windows 7 starter and Home Basic are aimed at Netbooks due to their low system requirements
Starter will not be available in retail stores, and will only be offered pre-installed on new PCs by Microsoft OEMs.
Windows 7 Home Basic
Home Basic lies somewhere between Starter and Home Premium. It has all the features of Windows 7 Starter and will also only be available through OEM partners in developing countries. Also like Starter, it will not include the Aero Glass GUI.
However it has some new features over Starter : more than 3 applications can be run at once; a 64-bit version; thumbnail previews from the taskbar; and Mobility Center, which allows you to manage the various networks that you connect to with your laptop. This version shares the same features as Windows 7 Home Premium except there are no Aero Glass GUI features and other UI tweaks such as Aero Snap, Aero Peek and multi-touch.Also, This version will not will not legally be available for sale in the United States.
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Home Premium has all the features of Starter and Home Basic and then some. This is the mainstream retail version that nearly all consumers will be using. Windows 7 Home Premium will be available worldwide to Microsoft OEMs and sold in retail stores loaded on new PCs.
Windows 7 Home Premium
A step up from Windows Home Basic, Home Premium includes the Aero Glass GUI and new Windows navigation features such as Aero Glass, Aero Background, Windows Touch, Home Group creation, Media Center, DVD playback and creation, premium games and Mobility Center.
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Professional combines features of Home Premium with added networking and data protection features for small businesses and those who frequently work at home. Microsoft will be marketing Professional features such as Domain Join to connect to business networks, Encrypting File System for data protection and Location Aware Printing to better connect to printers at work and home.
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Professional will not include the more buzzed-about business features such as DirectAccess and BranchCache. They show up in the next version up the food chain, Windows 7 Enterprise.
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Enterprise is only available to businesses through volume licensing and will include all the features of Windows 7 Professional plus more security and networking features.
Windows 7 Enterprise
Businesses covered by Microsoft's Software Assurance will get Windows 7 Enterprise at no additional charge. Added features include : BitLocker (encrypts data on internal and external drives); DirectAccess (connectivity to a corporate network without VPN); AppLocker (prevents unauthorized software from running); and BranchCache (speeds up the accessing of large remote files at branch offices).
Windows 7 Enterprise is designed for the corporate world and will only be used by large businesses. It will not be available at retail or by OEMs for pre-installation on a new PC.
Windows 7 Ultimate
Ultimate is the supersize version of Windows, includes all the features of all the other versions. Think of it as Windows 7 Enterprise for consumers. its the most expensive and expansive version of Windows 7 and will be targeted at Superusers who want every possible feature.
Windows 7 Ultimate
Microsoft has said that OEMs will be able to pre-install Windows 7 Ultimate on new machines and that there will be limited availability in retail. Most probably Alienware and gaming PC’s will be preloaded with Windows 7  .
Lets hope that Microsoft’s latest offering will be more appealing than the disastrous Vista.

Create a simple folder lock without using any software

Want to hide your ‘really’ private data ? but reluctant to use professional softwares ? I can understand you situation..likeCreate a simple folder lock without using any software  me,you dont have a penny in your pocket (and just in case you have,you don't want to spend a dime) or you are bitten by the knowledge bug and wanna learn on how to do it the raw way. You have 2 viable options,either go for warez,or continue reading this tutorial on how to hide your data by creating a near inaccessible folder.

Here is how to do that -

Create a new folder,rename it to a simple name like xero.
Now go to its properties,and choose a sprite less icon,which is next to a Yellow lock icon in third row.choose a sprite less iconChoose it,click OK and now folder will have no icon,literally invisible.Now to make it almost inaccessible,we must use some Batch renaming technique.

Create a new text file in the same drive next to the folder and type this command statement into it-

ren xero xero.{b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5}

type this command statement exactly

Now save this text file as lock.bat. Similarly create another text file and type this command statement into it-

ren xero.{b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5} xero

type this command statement exactly

Save this text file as lock.bat . Lock.bat will be used to make the folder inaccessible and Key.bat will be used to revert it into its original form.

What we have done here,is that we have renamed the folder with a random CLSID,which will change its identity into something else sing DOS. ‘CLSID’ is a unique registry-identifying component that is used to identify an ActiveX control or in simple language,it identifies which file/control will be opened by which program in Windows. I have determined the CLSID by opening registry editor and searching for “CLSID” and choosing any random value like {b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5} which I m using here.

Some common CLSID’s are -

  • Recycle bin - 645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E
  • Control panel - 21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D
  • Run - 2559A1F3-21D7-11D4-BDAF-00C04F60B9F0
  • Search - 2559A1F0-21D7-11D4-BDAF-00C04F60B9F0
  • Connect To - 7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E
  • Briefcase - 85BBD920-42A0-1069-A2E4-08002B30309D
  • Help - 2559A1F1-21D7-11D4-BDAF-00C04F60B9F0
  • Fonts - D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524152
  • Cameras and Scanners - E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD
  • My Network places - 208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D

Sorry for a little diversion,but I thought that was necessary. Now you have created the files,just double click the lock.bat file to make the folder inaccessible. Now the folder is invisible and also it cant be accessed by anyone.

But still,it has a name. So,in order to completely hide it, Rename it and enter an ASCII code by pressing ALT+0160  which will enter a null character in place of name and it will have No Name.

Now we have a completely hidden and inaccessible folder.

Congrats..Now you have created an inaccessible folder. To access it,just rename the folder into its original name and then click on key.bat . Now make sure to place the folder in a secure location and place lock.bat and key.bat in different locations . This simple folder lock is very effective as no one has idea that You can create it (sarcasm..again :P) .

Use some creativity and you can make that folder 100% inaccessible by encrypting it. I gave you a hint,find your own way :)

Create a Zip Bomb - Zip of Death

A zip bomb, also known as a Zip of Death, is a malicious archive file designed to crash or render useless the program or Create a Zip Bomb - Zip of Deathsystem reading it. It is often used by virus writers to disable antivirus software, so that a more traditional virus sent afterwards could get into system undetected. A zip bomb is usually a small file (up to a few hundred kilobytes) for ease of transport and to avoid suspicion. However, when the file is unpacked its contents are more than the system can handle.You can make your own zip bomb to annoy your friends or just out of curiosity (or wilderness) to experiment with it. Make sure you don't detonate it on yourself.

Here is how to make your own Zip of Death -

Create a new text file,name it a.txt

Create a new text file

Open and type the null character (alt + 255) in it.

Now press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + V a couple times to make some null bytes.If u have a hex editor,then make the hex 00 for about 50 kilobytes.

Now make several copies of a.txt in the same directory and name them accordingly.

make several copies of a.txt

Open Command prompt and navigate to the folder containing a.txt . Type -

copy /b *.txt b.txt

Open Command prompt and make a super copy

This will write all the contents of a.text and its copies into a new text file called b.txt,hence making every copy is a super copy. Repeat the above steps from the beginning again and again to make a really big text file.

Once u have a nice empty big text file like 1gb or more,then compress it using Winrar or Winzip into a zip file.

You will find that it will be compressed to very small size (about 1MB ). It is because of the simple construction of the file as the text file contains 1gb of null bytes.

Compress the text file and it will be compressed to a very high degree.

For added fun,open the compressed zip file file into a hex editor. You will see a bunch of hex 5555.Just add some more and the file will expand amazingly.

Open zip in hex editor

Make sure that YOU DONT OPEN THIS afterwards.

You can make the same file in Linux by typing -

dd if=/dev/zero bs=1000 count=1000000 | gzip > test.gz

Send it to your friends (or foes) and it will definitely annoy them . Use some creativity and rename the text file into some thing like Angelina Jolie.jpg and compress it and email to your friends. Once they download it,they will never be able to download again (sarcasm..sarcasm).More disastrous combinations can be made by experimenting with it.I mean..you get the idea :)

Also,you can check out the one of the most famous zip bombs alive today – 42.zip (only 42 KB) which will uncompress to about 4 Petabytes (1 Peta byte = 1024 TB and 1 TB = 1024 GB ) of file size. Dangerous huh..?

Resident Evil 5 – An Honest Review

Resident Evil 5 is one of the most hyped games of this generation and was prominently featured in various Top 10 Lists. The incredible amount of hype it generated was contributed to the long development period,the over the top gorgeous looking trailers,gory in game footage and just the plain curiosity,whether it will be able to surpass its legendary predecessor or not.

Yes..today is 13 March 2009 and the wait is Over…Resident Evil 5 debuted worldwide today and I m providing you an honest review here to share if it lives upto its hype or not..

Graphics (9.5/10)

This is one of the most stunning games I have played till date. I played it on XBOX 360 and PS3 (courtesy of a game parlor) and it was an awe inspiring experience for me. Capcom has left no stone unturned to make it a visual landmark in the history of Resident Evil series.Ultra high resolution graphics are painstakingly detailed, and successfully paint a vivid image of a real world setting. The cut-scenes give you a thoroughly cinematic experience as they play like movies, beefing up the already laudable visual fidelity of the game. The only gripe is sometime,you do feel that there are similar kind of zombies but thats passable.

Resident Evil 5 is a damn gorgeous looking game 

Audio (9.5/10)

The audio beautifully complements the tense atmosphere of the game and blends seamlessly with the cutscenes and situations faced by the protagonists. The game features orchestral music recorded at Hollywood and the usual electronic stuff. The in game voice acting is impeccable though you seem to feel Sheva’s English accent beats those of Lara croft.I especially liked the voice of Albert Wesker ,his smooth style and charisma.

Story (6.8/10)

Whereas Resident Evil 4 stylishly shifted the series storyline with a defining new chapter, Resident Evil 5 distinctly fails to have the same impact. You are put in the shoes of Chris Redfield who now is working with BSAA and is on a mission to investigate the origins of Virus outbreak in an African country.He is aided by Sheva Alomar who is the African operative of BSAA.The plot is slow in a classic RE manner,and is devoid of twists upon which the series relies on but it still carries on the story which will lead to the making of a 6th RE.The promise of Chris Redfield's return largely surrounds the seemingly endless battle with Wesker, and his flashbacks provide the main source of interest but they fail to cause any amnesiac revelations.

Gameplay (8/10)

While I got my hands dirty on RE5,I was seriously thinking when it would scare the hell out of me. Okay,the atmosphere is tense,but not in terms of Horror,but like you have been playing an Action-Horror game in which you have to blast zombies minus the scare.Puzzles are very less and it makes RE5 more of a shooter rather than vanilla RE.The controls are tweaked and sometimes you really want that you can move and shoot at the same time,but then,It would not be a resident evil game then…You are aided by Sheva,your partner in crime (or survival for the time being) who never seems to be a burden on you. She can help herself on blasting the way through zombies,gets you items and even saved my ass off in some tight situations. Her AI is good but the fact is that you cant strategize with her well to take your new foes down.

Sheva can take care of herself,seriously..Enemy AI is varying,some areas have easy grunts who dont mind you shooting bullets and making noises and some areas have near impossible inevitable foes with whom you are gonna have a duel with.Specific enemies can flank you and even take cover.You will be on the edge of your seats due to interactive cut scenes and QuickTime events which will create some of the game's most memorable moments.

Enemies react in varying degree The weapon set constitutes of usual knives,shotguns,handguns,pistols,snipers,automatics and rocket launchers and some times embedded turrets. You will be blasting enemies by shooting drums,transformers and various other aiding baits. The environments are interactive but not to the mark of new games with destructible scenarios like FEAR2 Project Origin and games powered with HAVOC physics and other engines. I hope RE6 on MT framework 3.98765 will be a blast :) The game has a surprisingly short playtime of 6-7 hours. I do feel,RE5 is RE4 with co-op enabled and beefed up graphics..

Last WordsResident Evil 5

Resident Evil 4 was a legend,which set the parameters for its successor to unfairly high levels.Resident Evil 5 on the other hand is an action packed spectacular game with terrific production values and painstaking amount of detail and is an excellent co-op game.Resident Evil 5 is worthwhile if you're a fan of the series, enjoy shooters or just like pretty graphics The sheer emphasis on action, coupled with the dated gameplay mechanics and inability to show any advance beyond the Resident Evil 4 blueprint is possible to overlook if you're happy with state-of-the-art visuals and zombie laying. I repeat myself again, Resident Evil 5 is more of a shooter and the tagline “Fear you cant forget” seems shallow..

Final Score – 34/40

Systems Reviewed – XBOX 360,PS3
