Raspberry Pi Offers Soulless Work Oversight

Hack a Day - 15 hours 16 min ago

If you’re like us, you spend more time than you care to admit staring at a computer screen. Whether it’s trying to find the right words for a blog post or troubleshooting some code, the end result is the same: an otherwise normally functioning human being is reduced to a slack-jawed zombie. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to quantify just how much of your life is being wasted basking in the flickering glow of your monitor? Surely that wouldn’t be a crushingly depressing piece of information to have at the end of the week.

With the magic of modern technology, you need wonder no longer. Prolific hacker [dekuNukem] has created the aptly named “facepunch”, which allows you to “punch in” with nothing more than your face. Just sit down in front of your Raspberry Pi’s camera, and the numbers start ticking away. It’s like the little clock in the front of a taxi: except at the end you don’t have to pay anyone, you just have to come to terms with what your life has become. So that’s cool.

It doesn’t take much hardware to play along at home. All you need is a Raspberry Pi and the official camera accessory. Though for the full effect you should add one of the displays supported by the Luma.OLED driver so you can see the minutes and hours ticking away in real-time.

To get the facial recognition going, all you need to do is take a well-lit picture of your face and save it as a 400×400 JPEG. The Python 3 script will take care of the rest: checking the frames from the camera every few seconds to see if your beautiful mug is in the frame, and incrementing the counters accordingly.

Even if you’re not in the market for an Orwellian electronic supervisor, this project is a great example to get you started in the world of facial recognition. With a little luck, you’ll be weaponizing it in no time.

Cookie exploit methods?

Your hacking tutorial - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 22:04

Hey everyone!

I'm working on this one particular web challenge and I've been stuck for a while now. I know the page is vulnerable to JS injection, but since JS is executed on the client, I don't think it's a possible attack vector (opinions are very welcome). So, I started fiddling with the cookies, but I don't know much about cookie exploitation or how to leverage them.

The point of the challenge is to somehow log in as a regular user, but then trick the server into loading the admin page instead. Now I wish it was as easy as setting cookie user to admin (actually I don't, that'd be too easy, and no such cookie exists), and voila, but it's nothing like that. I've tried decoding the cookies to see if there was info encoded (I assume base64), but there is nothing legible. I know the backend is using php so I tried encoding php & mySQL code, inserting them into the cookie, and resending it to see if it yielded anything, but no such luck. I started reading into things like header injections and so forth but at this point I feel I'm overthinking it. I'm pretty set on it being a cookie exploitation since I received a "hint" in the form of an Oreo. What do you guys think? What other things can I try? Thanks for reading!
