Last day of 5 sem

A warm Hi to all geeks from your one of the member ( Fre@k aka china-may :) )

This tym i knw all of you might be busy in preparing for ur last exam that is scheduled to be conducted tommorow at 2 pm. but this side i dont feel lyk studing n while having a break frm studies i thought why don't write a brief blog. I don't know abt rest of u but i personally thinks that in this only sem in JIIT , we spent our lyf as a collegiate of a technical institute. we have done each n every thing which we feels to do in the last 2.5 yr and never succeded as an eg. we had nt studied for our t-3 man ... its a gr8 achievment( barring ECE ppl frm geeks ;) xcept ambar n soni ), one of brave frnd runs to save his lyf frm 20 bikers chasing him with klaxon.

keeping our enjoyment n happiness aside, i think all of us had choose tht wht they gone b in their future. few of us joined MBA coaching, few joined for MS (barring me who knws wht to do but taking it casually again, god knws when i gonna tk my lyf seriously).

newayzz wht all round development that occur in geeks will continue to occur as i can proudly say "That each of us have dreams to change the WORLD n we all have started chasing our dreams" 

BEST OF LUCK for each n every little competition we face in our future.. :)

Certified Ethical Hacker Program

The CEH Program certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The Certified Ethical Hacker certification will fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure. A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker.
To achieve the Certified Ethical Hacker Certification, you must pass the CEH exam 312-50
The examination consists of 150 questions. The duration of the test varies according to location and channel. The exam 312-50 offered through Prometric Prime is of four hour duration. 
For more information go to CEH

Ethical Hacker

The definition of an Ethical Hacker is very similar to a Penetration Tester. The Ethical Hacker is an individual who is usually employed with the organization and who can be trusted to undertake an attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems using the same methods as a Hacker. Hacking is a felony in the United States and most other countries. When it is done by request and under a contract between an Ethical Hacker and an organization, it is legal. The most important point is that an Ethical Hacker has authorization to probe the target.

The goal of the ethical hacker is to help the organization take preemptive measures against malicious attacks by attacking the system himself; all the while staying within legal limits. This philosophy stems from the proven practice of trying to catch a thief, by thinking like a thief. As technology advances and organization depend on technology increasingly, information assets have evolved into critical components of survival.

If hacking involves creativity and thinking 'out-of-the-box', then vulnerability testing and security audits will not ensure the security proofing of an organization. To ensure that organizations have adequately protected their information assets, they must adopt the approach of 'defense in depth'. In other words, they must penetrate their networks and assess the security posture for vulnerabilities and exposure.

Cool cellphone stuff

Cool things you can do with a cell phone in time of an emergency -

(1)The Emergency Number
If you find yourself out of coverage area, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

(2)Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does you car have remote keys?
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the
mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Distance is no object.You can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

(3)Hidden Battery power
Imagine your cell battery is very low, you are expecting an important call and you don’t have a charger.Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery.To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

(4) How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone’s serial number,key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.
You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either.If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.


Get XP Product Key from the CD itself

Just explore the CD then open the folder I386 then open the file UNATTEND.TXT and scroll down to the last line, there you have a Product Key.

Some Linux Distributions

  • Ubuntu Linux is now perhaps the best-known and most popular distribution of Linux. It is well designed, easy-to-use and has advanced the use of Linux as a desktop operating system more any other distribution.
  • Red Hat Linux has been around for a while and has acquired a reputation for consistency and reliability. It may not be the easiest to use or the most cutting-edge distribution, but it provides the type of high-quality support that is valued by companies, which made it the de-facto standard in corporate America.
  • Fedora Core is a Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat. The objectives of Fedora Linux differ from those of Red Hat in that Fedora engages the Open Source community and is more experimental in nature.
  • Mandriva Linux has been very popular among new and home users. Installation is particularly user-friendly, and it runs by default the KDE Windows-like graphical desktop environment.
  • SuSE Linux is a serious alternative for Windows users, with solid, user-friendly installation and configuration tools. Its popularity is held back a little only by somewhat “un-Linux like” business practices, such as not providing ISO installation images for free download. They do, however, offer free FTP installation.
  • Lycoris is designed to be a user-friendly Linux distribution with particular emphasis on transitioning from Windows operating systems. Good choice for beginners.
  • Xandros Linux is a great choice for beginners who don’t mind to fork over a few dollars to get a worry free product. It is refined and reliable but with proprietary components that prevent re-distribution. No free download.
  • Linspire’s one-click web based software installation is quick and easy. An annual fee is charged for accessing Lindows software pool.
  • Knoppix provides an excellent run-from-CD solution, with its powerful hardware detection features and pain-free set-up. If desired, the system can be optionally installed on the hard disk to improve performance. It also comes with plenty of software.
  • Slackware Linux is a good opportunity to learn about the Linux operating system. It gives you back a long-lost sense of control and empowerment. No longer will you be at the mercy of graphical set-up wizards and mysterious background demons.

Incredible response

A young unwed girl discovers that she is pregnant. Scared, she confides this
'news' to her mother. Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, "Who was 
the pig that did this to you?

I want to know!" The girl picks up the phone and makes a call. Half an hour
later a Ferrari stops in front of their house; a mature and distinguished
man with gray hair and impeccably dressed in a very expensive suit steps out 
of it and enters the house.

He sits in the living room with the father, the mother and the girl, and
tells them: "Good Morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem.
However, I can't marry her because of my personal family situation, but I'll 
take responsibility.

If a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a townhouse, a beach
villa and a $1,000,000 bank account. If a boy is born, my legacy will be a
couple of factories and a $2,000,000 bank account. If it is twins, a factory 
and $1,000,000 each. However, if there is a miscarriage, what do you suggest
I do?"

At this point, the father, who had remained silent, places a hand firmly on
the man's shoulder and tells him, "You can try again!"
