Got a new eee pc for security testing. I have tested the last BT4 on it and here are some random hints about the setup. It’s a draft, more or less a dump of my screen buffer.
You must press F2 to go in the EEEPC BIOS. Dont forget to uncheck the « fast boot » else it will boot on the windows partition and not on the CD.
Install backtrack as usual (with the install.sh script). After the first reboot, the wired Lan don’t work, but you can use the wifi to download the drivers.
# /etc/init.d/wicd start
and go to Go to “WICD Network Manager” In the Internet menu
Install the lan driver
# cd drivers-ath
# wget http://www.jfwhome.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/atheros-wired-driver-1005ha-linux.zip
# unzip atheros-wired-driver-1005ha-linux.zip
# cd src
# sudo make install
# modprobe atl1e.ko
dont forget to add atl1e in /etc/modules
Launch a system update with
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
If you have a problem with posgresql about server.crt certificates, you can use
# make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil –force-overwrite
If you have a issue with samdump
# dpkg -r samdump2 samdump2-menu
# dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/samdump2_2.0.1-bt0_i386.deb
Sometime you want to launch X at boot time. You can use kdm for this purpose
apt-get install kdm
And play with (/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc) to allow root login (or allow autologin to root… yeh, it’s very unsecure, but since we use backtrack to do security testing ,it’s not a big deal). Dont forget to change the default runlevel to 3 in /etc/event.d/rc-default
To update all the offensive stuff (like MSgo in /pentest/exploits/fasttrack, and use
# ./fast-track.py -c 1 2
For kismet, update the /usr/etc/kismet.conf file with ncsource=wlan0, the wifi card will work right out the box (and packet injection too)
I don’t take the time to test ACPI issue with the eeepc, so maybe in a next post.
Happy Backtrack 🙂
