Weird problems when using macchanger on Kali linux. (Question) (help)

Reddit - Wed, 2017-05-10 08:54

To be honest I'm a linux noob. I was just introduced to it a month ago I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing. I use Kali to practice hacking basics. ( I'm white hat). So far I'm still preparing. Got a VPN, DNS, and now I need to spoof my MAC address. I know what I'm supposed to do to spoof it but it doesn't work for some reason. Here's whats goin on. I check ifconfig eth0 to see my status and i see my default mac. I also use macchanger -s eth0 to double check. Everything is the way it is as default. I take down eth0 using ifconfig eth0 down. Then i use macchanger -r eth0 to spoof. I check ifconfig eth0 (ifconfig eth0 is still down) and i see a different address like it should be. Of course it's random. Obviously i need to take it back up so i bless it with the magic command ifconfig eth0 up. It connects to the internet fine but here's the kicker. The mac reverted back to its original MAC address. Not the virtually spoofed one. I need it to stay. And I can't keep swapping real internet cards on my computer because im not the monopoly man. If you can help that will be greatly appreciated. I know you hate teaching a noob but I need helps and this is that last possible source.

Clevo should officially become the face of Linux laptops

Reddit - Wed, 2017-05-10 08:04

When I see over and over some guys claiming that they have the new U1 or Slim or whatever Linux laptop I am just really pissed. Why?

1) They are not being honest

2) They didn't even bother to put the linux win key stickers on the machine

I think we should all ask Clevo to become an official Linux manufacturer with a classic product distribution model (even with resellers, but under a Clevo brand) and stop this nonsense of hiding the real identity of the laptop.

This trend is really unfortunate in the Linux laptop reseller world. It's cringy, childish and I would even say... tragic.

Again, it's a Clevo laptop and not a U1 or whatever put a brand here laptop - because you just put your logo on a back of the Clevo laptop and add 200 dollars or more to the original price.

Much ado about communication

LXer - Wed, 2017-05-10 07:48
One of the first challenges an open source project faces is how to communicate among contributors. There are a plethora of options: forums, chat channels, issues, mailing lists, pull requests, and more. How do we choose which is the right medium to use and how do we do it right?Sadly and all too often, projects shy away from making a disciplined decision and instead opt for "all of the above." This results in a fragmented community: Some people sit in Slack/Mattermost/IRC, some use the forum, some use mailing lists, some live in issues, and few read all of them.read more

Ssh Authentication by rsa key -- how to create proper configuration?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-05-10 06:44

I'm confused: how can I actually disable password authentication properly in ssh? I've seen different solutions. I myself am using this:

# /etc/ssh/sshd_config: ChallengeResponseAuthentication no UsePAM no PermitRootLogin no PasswordAuthentication no PermitEmptyPasswords no RSAAuthentication yes PubkeyAuthentication yes

Is this correct? Should I add or remove anything?

What is the relationship between Mastodon and the rest of Gnu Social?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-05-10 00:01

I've been taking a look at Mastodon and can't quite work out its relation to Gnu Social and the rest of the fediverse. This article hints that Mastodon's implementation of OStatus breaks some of the federation. Also, Mastodon isn't listed on Gnu.io so for some reason (don't know why) it isn't FSF approved.

So is Mastodon just the (currently largest) implementation of Gnu Social, or is there more to it? I'm a little worried about joining and being cut off from the rest of the Fediverse down the line.
