Project Monitor – Listening Internet Whispers

Monitor is a BOT programmed to spider web pages and collect desired content. It was originally developed to find logins, email addresses,  password hashes, shadow files, SQL dumps and generally, data leaked by users and developers, or disclosed by Hacktivist in the Internet. Monitor implements a serie of filters and a mechanisms to classify and categorise the parsed content, which is subsequently stored into a database for later access. This tool has been used to parse Pastebin, Anonpaste and Pastie web sites and the following is a demonstration of this utility.


Cross-Compile for Android – Installing Tcpdump

After “rooting” an Android phone, I was attracted by the idea of installing supplementary binaries on the device. Usually after rooting the Android device, you will be finding Busybox installed. This application allows your Android phone to execute a list of common unix like commands such as ls, grep, ifconfig, awk etc… To retrieve the list of available command and the version of your Busybox just run Busybox without parameters from the command line:

$ busybox

At that time I was interested in monitoring the connection made by an application installed on the phone, so my target was to take Tcpdump onto the Android phone.
