    Create hidden service in TOR like Silk Road or DarkNet

    Create TOR hidden service like Silk Road or DarkNet - blackMORE Ops

    How many of you have heard of a hidden service in TOR like the Silk Road? It’s really not some mystical location on the dark side of the Internet, or Darknet. While it does sound a bit fantastic, a hidden service in TOR is just a server that is connected to TOR network and is only accessible by a uniquely generated domain name (.onion). The idea is that there aren’t supposed to be any IP’s associated with the server once it’s set up on TOR – making it untraceable. Of course there are ways of exploiting a vulnerability that will reveal that address, but I won’t go into that. Essentially a hidden service is just a web service on TOR. In this post, I will show how to create hidden service in TOR like Silk Road or DarkNet. However, one might think why its necessary to create hidden service in TOR like Silk Road? After all, Silk Road was an illegal service that was taken down. But in many cases It might be necessary not because you want to create something illegal like Silk Road, but it's necessary for the people in oppressed states where you don't have a right to express yourself and you still want information passed onto the outside world. Use it well and for legit purposes.

    How to disable IPv6 in Linux?

    How to disable IPv6 in Linux - blackMORE Ops - 1 300px

    The entire world is moving towards IPv6, although it’s happening too slowly. IPv6 is necessary to replace IPv4 — we’re running out of IPv4 addresses and IPv6 is the solution. In that context, the last method of setting preferences (Without disabling IPv6 - setting IPv4 as preferred over IPv6) is better. There’s a good chance you don’t actually need IPv6 on your network — unless you rely on Windows Homegroup or similar features — so it may not be particularly harmful to remove if if you know what you’re doing. However, you won’t see a speed improvement from clinging to IPv4 unless there are serious problems with your Internet service provider’s network or your home network. The moral is, if you notice that IPv6 needs fixing, fix it today rather than postponing until tomorrow. We live in the early days of mass deployment of IPv6, and we need to work together to untangle the implementation quirks that arise. The list of fixes above represents only a small sampling of potential issues. You can always seek help Online at any number of reputable IPv6 discussion forums. Use network misbehavior as an opportunity to learn about and improve the state of IPv6 internetworking and resist any temptations to disable the protocol.

    Complete solution for online privacy with own private OpenSSH, OpenVPN and VNC server

    Complete solution for online privacy with own private OpenSSH, OpenVPN and VNC server - blackMORE Ops

    While there are publicly available VPN and SSH servers available – some free and some not – on the Internet, anyone who has tried to use them has discovered that they are not as reliable as they had hoped them to be: Difficulty in connecting, and very poor performance are common. Many people feel that the servers should not maintain logs; something that is difficult to find without paying a monthly or annual fee -- which, if you think about it, takes away your anonymity because now they have a record of their sales transaction. The best possible solution for this situation is to set up a private SSH and VPN server on your home network and use them when you are out on the road or overseas: You won't have logs to worry about, it is always available and totally exclusive to you; which means that your performance should be outstanding! And, all of your traffic transverses an encrypted channel which makes it virtually immune to hacking and prying eyes.

    Download Hacking Team Database from torrent using magnet link

    Download Hacking Team Database from torrent using magnet link - blackMORE Ops 400px

    On July 5, 2015, the Twitter account of the Italian security company Hacking Team was compromised by an unknown individual who published an announcement of a data breach against Hacking Team's computer systems. The initial message read, "Since we have nothing to hide, we're publishing all our e-mails, files, and source code …" and provided links to over 400 gigabytes of data, including alleged internal e-mails, invoices, and source code; which were leaked via BitTorrent and Mega. An announcement of the data breach, including a link to the bittorrent seed, was retweeted by WikiLeaks and by many others through social media. The leaked data revealed a zero-day cross-platform Flash exploit (CVE number CVE-2015-5119). The dump included a demo of this exploit by opening Calculator from a test webpage. Adobe patched the hole on July 8, 2015. Another vulnerability involving Adobe was revealed in the dumps, which took advantage of a buffer overflow attack on an Adobe Open Type Manager DLL included with Microsoft Windows. The DLL is run in kernel mode, so the attack could perform privilege escalation to bypass the sandbox. This post contains a torrent/magnet link to download Hacking Team database. It also contains another link to download selective files in case you don't want to download whole of 400gb Hacking Team Database from torrent.
