Some more free & fed-y training

In my last post, I talked about one of the many websites that provides training in exchange for CEUs. Continuing Education (Units?) are used to renew licenses or certifications, or are just good resume boosters. Oh yeah - and it's free!

There are some similar options that I'd like to share with you today as a follow-up! I'm not certain if these are redeemable for CEUs for your program, but certificates are also available. If the FEMA courses weren't really your vibe, here are some similar counterparts: 

  • Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Virtual Learning Portal has beginner and intermediate classes which take about few hours a piece. some of the topics may be familiar to seasoned practitioners, but introduce concepts a little further than noob level. Great training for those who need to understand larger security concerns, such as those in management positions.

  • CISA also has a second free training portal called FEDeral Virtual Training Environment with a slew of free courses. 101 Coding for the Public, 101 Reverse Engineering, and Cloud Computing Security are a few of the choices they have available which students may find useful.
  • The Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) Naval Postgradude School Self-Study Courses have many courses in homeland security, security, and terrorism. It's real DHS-y if you get what I mean, but the courses are interesting are deserved to be listed.
Next time, I'll share less fed-y sources ;) but maybe you should know what they know, hmm?

Wardriving OSINT & SE

 Disclaimer: do NOT use this information to be a jerk. Don’t try to get the location of my examples, or you’re a big meanie. There's already a post out there about tracking people with wifi. It's helpful for those who use a hotspot or maybe a vehicle hotspot. I believe a personal device that broadcasts Bluetooth is more likely than a hotspot.  Tracking What wardriving can’t do = track people via Bluetooth devices Or shouldn’t be able to work. Most modern Bluetooth devices use MAC randomization, which changes the MAC address of the Bluetooth device at random. Even if you can track a device it may only be short-term, as it’ll change again.  But sometimes they don't turn over to a randomized MAC. Do what you will with that. If you want to see how easy it is to make a random MAC go here . But what if you only need a short-term answer? Better start stumblin’. Let’s forget the purpose of needing that MAC address long-term. With all MAC addresses, OUI can tell you what the

The big list of remote job openings

From a conversation in my Discord ; one member brought up a lot of the best remote jobs and job boards come from Twitter. This is a decentralized way of distributing information, which is better than not sharing the information but can be hard to find.  This list is not a replacement for that, but it's pretty close. Here's the master remote vacancy list for remote jobs in the United States. This job board is in no way just for IT jobs, there are all sorts of jobs from sales, teaching, upper management, data entry, design, customer service, and more. Take a look if you're looking for a new job.  Some Tips: Try searching the full row for the job in Google. There are better job boards where the job posting is more up to date; instead of using the link provided. Don't spam one company, make sure if you're using the shotgun approach, you aren't letting the companies you're applying for know that There's a lot of advice on how to get a job online. Some of you

Overwriting Deleted Files in Windows

 Once a file is deleted, most operating systems will still hold on to the file. The link between the operating system and the file is removed, but the data is still on the disk waiting to be overwritten or used for something else. A common utility seen in the wild is Eraser  but it's a bloated utility that takes a long time. It's a good utility if you really need to overwrite a Windows machine more than 3 times - but the use case for this is minimal.  pause: this article surrounds mostly HDD, as files are recoverable on these drives if not overwritten. For SSDs, this is just going to cause more wear to your drive! An underutilized tool is cipher . In Windows, it displays or alters the encryption of directories and files on NTFS volumes. But, with the option w  it overwrites deleted files and empty space of a drive. You can use it on the same drive the OS is located, external drives, and removable media. It's easy to use! If your OS is installed on C: and you want to remove
