snmpcheck – Backtrack 5 – Information Gathering – Network Analysis – SNMP Analysis – snmpcheck

SNMP can be a hidden gem that seems to be overlooked sometimes during penetration testing. It is really cool the information you can obtain just using snmpwalk from the command line however the information can be lengthy and unless you are an SNMP OID library or feel like googling a bunch of different stuff it really helps to have tools such as snmpcheck available. Below we describe what snmpcheck, which is written in Perl, will accomplish for you and we also provide a couple of examples against Ubuntu and a Cisco router.

Restore Trillian Activity History On Windows 7, Import Trillian Chat History

As noted in previous articles my laptops Windows 7 Ultimate x64 operating system install became corrupted after I attempted to install the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 update. I believe the issue was related to some sort of software conflict so not necessarily all SP1’s fault though you would think there would be some form of error checking involved in the install. I waited out the upgrade for over 8 hours but in the end it still failed out. Anyhow during the process of reinstalling Windows 7 x64 on my laptop and installing all of the applications that were installed previously I wanted to restore my Trillian chat history for all of the various Trillian Connections. Below I describe what connections were configured and what Trillian Connections chat logs were restored.

YouTube Video Playback Error: This Is A Private Video

I configured a WordPress plugin on my personal blog site to allow me to embed YouTube videos of my kids to share with the family. The plugin is called Youtube With Fancy Zoom and provides a great way to setup a gallery of YouTube thumbnails that when clicked on will open a YouTube movie in a overlay window. Anyway during configuring the plugin, videos, etc. I was logged in to YouTube and assumed everything was working properly. I emailed the new page to my wife to check out and she let me know that she was not able to view the videos because they were all labeled private. The message stating the YouTube videos were private along with how to share the videos with everyone are both detailed below.
