Shipment 1 of 2 - The new WTMD journey.

Hey - here's part of my new metal detector. 

The two top panels and the base for the side arms

 
The back of the control unit and the front of the control panel


This post is going to be fairly short, as I only have half of the machine. When I receive the uprights and re-assemble the machine, you'll get a much better idea of the WTMD's function. While were are here, notice the gap in the main unit? There's something else I'm going to put there, so stay tuned. Additionally, I'm going to open up the main unit next to check to make sure there isn't anything extra inside. 

Notice the lock on the control panel? The purpose is to have a physical lock to prevent tampering with the controls, and originally when [hacker-dad] received the WTMD it was locked in the disabled position. I remarked how I was hoping he'd find the key, and he picked it open with ease instead. 

He played around with the device for a few days before sending it my way, so it was in working order before it was shipped halfway across the country. I'm really excited for this journey. I still have a few more parts to make or get, so I'll let you know when I can find those as well. 

Hack the Planet.

Your First #WWWD Wardriving Rig - Rig 1: Android Phone

 Hello! If you've found this post it's likely you're looking to participate in 2023's World Wide WarDrive hosted by WiGLE.net Getting started in wardriving is easy. You don't need a fancy rig or a bunch of antennas to get going.  In the next article we'll be building a rig using a Raspberry Pi or other mini-computer that can run Kali Linux. It's the second easiest rig to make. The first is using a phone! Rig 1: The Android Phone   This one is pretty simple. You need to find an Android phone, change a couple of settings, and download the WiGLE.net app.  Find an old Android phone you have laying around. If you don't have one, I recommend going to a used video game store and looking there for one. Or, if you're willing to use Amazon, this phone isn't a bad place to start. Almost any BLU phone or unlocked Android will work.  Change a couple of settings Go to Settings, scroll down and select 'About This Device' Enable Developer Mode - this is

Remove data from Data Brokers

 If you have a little change from your tax return, I have a suggestion on where you should spend it this year. This is not sponsored, not an advertisement, and I do not benefit from these companies. I paid for these services out of pocket on my own. Okay. We all know how scary OSINT can be, being able to look up public information such as age and home address. We hand over this information readily when we use certain products and services. Some of this information is also kept at a criminal level, such as criminal record lookups.  That's not the only information we hand over, we are tracked and have our data collected every day through data brokers. They profit off of our identities selling it back to one another constantly.  There are services now that will automate the removal of your data from data brokers. I found Aura and Incogni when promoted online. Both of them had a referral code, but also a standard discount for an annual subscription instead of monthly. At the time of wr

2023 Resolutions

Welcome to my New Year's Resolutions! I feel a little vulnerable sharing my goals publicly and auditing if I failed or succeeded over the year.  My 2023 Resolutions 1) HACK THE PLANET! 2) Upload to WiGLE every month 3) Post to the blog at least once a month 4) Continue to follow and maintain my vision board. Don't judge me! I thought they were cheesy and weird, but it's been so effective. I made a blog post about it already, but just as a refresher my current board is below. A vision board is almost a resolution list in of itself. These are all the things I want to achieve in the near future.  5) Pass the HAM radio exam 6) Continue in content creation and make articles or a podcast Let's go over what my resolutions where last year: My 2022 Resolutions 1) Make it to 500,000 unique wifi networks I made it in November! I achieved this goal and obtained the gold WiGLE badge.  2) Upload to WiGLE every month I made this most months, but not every month. I will try again! 3) W
