[REQUEST] Send sms on incoming call and deactivating silent

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 16:41

I'm looking for a tasty recipe, I'd like to send an automated sms if someone (only from a cellphone) calls when I'm at work, it should read some thing in the lines of "oi its important call twice in under 3 minutes) and when/if the caller calls a second time it deactivates my silent profile based on my schedule in Google calendar. And then returns to my work task.

Wondering how these work

Cryptography - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 16:27

Hey, i was wondering if anyone can explain to me how this could work:
I have an IMEI which can be used to generate an unlock code

Unlock code IMEI 15314611291861883 <- 869451017935433 10816128196111313 <- 867108020451350

context: these unlock codes can be used to unlock the bootloader on huawei smartphones. Huawei stopped the free service to generate them and so i was wondering how these could be generated/calculated(?) or how i could find out how these were generated (if that makes sense).

Metasplotable 2 ipv4 issue

Your hacking tutorial - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 16:14

I've just set up VirtualBox with Kali and M2 running. I tried to grab my IP address by looking in ifconfig but all I'm getting is a inet6 address.

I've had a look around and can't find a fix. I tried looking at the network settings under global preferences to set an IP, but the only option available is for NAT networks.

Anybody have any advice?

Foam Airboat is Cheap RC Fun

Hack a Day - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 16:00

Archer fans and residents of Louisiana will already be familiar with the concept of the airboat. Put a powerful engine running an aircraft prop on a flat-bottomed hull, and you’ve got an excellent way to traverse the marshes of the American South. While a fully-fledged airboat might run you the best part of $100,000, this no-frills radio-controlled version is great fun at a much lower price.

The hull is built on a sheet of foam, which is cheap, readily available, and suitably buoyant for the task. It’s then kitted out with a brushless motor to run the prop and a servo to control the rudder. Lace it up with a radio receiver and speed controller and you’re good to go.

The build could readily be completed in well under a couple of hours, and is a great one to tackle with kids due to its mechanical simplicity. There’s room for extra creativity too – you can always substitute a watermelon if you’re feeling peckish. Video after the break.

Need help with unreadable pdfs

Your hacking tutorial - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 15:51


I have some PDFs and PNGs that are completely unreadable by Preview (I'm on a macbook), and when I open them with text editor, I get window full of unreadable characters (ex: Ã∑l‡IG™úåcR±¢:Úã~†∫≈∑ÇQj“ùœˇ÷=ÿ). Theses PDFs and PNGs also come with .json files that I don't know how to read. Does anyone know how to open either the PDF/PNG or the .json files? If it is of any help, these files come from a program and you need a password to use them in the program.

Edited for clarity

Thank you for reading!

Can I get some help with this hashcat command?

Your hacking tutorial - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 15:16

I am trying to use hashcat, but it is returning the status 'Exhausted'.

I created a file called 'hashes.txt' and I put some MD5 hashes I created into that file. I made sure that the hashes used were common passwords like '123456' and 'letmein'. The file contains only the hashes with 1 hash per line.

I then downloaded a txt file containing the top 10,000 common passwords. Specifically, this one: and I saved it in the same directory.

After installing hashcat and verifying that it works with

hashcat -h

After it showed the help successfully, I used the following command:

hashcat -m 0 -a 0 -o output.txt hashes.txt darkweb2017-top10000.txt

The output states that my hashes.txt folder contains the correct number of hashes, they are all the correct length for md5, I don't get any out of the ordinary error warnings, but it finishes and states that my wordlist was exhausted and there is no output.txt file.

I googled around and found some help sites that showed examples, but everything I found states that this should work.

Am I missing something here? Is there an option that I got wrong or a command that I'm missing? Thanks in advance

Heads Up Notifications Not Working

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 15:11

Hi everyone!

I'm relatively new to using Tasker. I am using it to build automated separation between my work and personal life, and so far I've set up two different launchers that swap using AutoTools' launcher option. However, as it stands right now, I'm running into one tiny issue that's becoming progressively more annoying.

I use heads up notifications for a ton of my day-to-day tasks so I can quickly respond to messages as they come in, etc. When I started using AutoTools, I started to see some of these stop working. For example, MS Flow, FaceBook Messenger, and Nine Email have all stopped giving heads up notifications, but the stock Pixel Messenger app still shows them (albeit only sometimes).

Can anyone think of why this may be happening?
