  • Hackers generally like to think of themselves as an elite group of information seekers who are adept at exploring computer systems and networks. Although hacking into network computer systems is illegal, hackers believe it is ethically acceptable as long as a hacker does not commit theft, vandalism or breach any confidentiality -- the so-called hacker code of ethics. In fact, many hackers believe it is their responsibility to seek out security holes in computer networks so that systems administrators may fix them.

    But not all hackers follow a code of ethics. Those who break into computer systems with malicious intent are known in the hacking world as crackers. Hackers who wanted to differentiate themselves from crackers devised the word itself. Whereas hackers possess a great deal of knowledge of computers and generally write their own hacking programs, crackers tend to be young and unskilled. But it is not necessarily true.

  • A hacker is a person intensely interested in the arcane and recondite workings of any computer
    operating system. Most often, hackers are programmers. As such, hackers obtain advanced
    knowledge of operating systems and programming languages. They may know of holes within
    systems and the reasons for such holes. Hackers constantly seek further knowledge, freely share
    what they have discovered, and never, ever intentionally damage data.

    ----------------------
    WHO IS A CRACKER

    A cracker is a person who breaks into or otherwise violates the system integrity of remote
    machines, with malicious intent. Crackers, having gained unauthorized access, destroy vital data,
    deny legitimate users service, or basically cause problems for their targets. Crackers can easily be
    identified because their actions are malicious.

  • Originally the term “hacker” was used to describe someone who possessed an expert level of know-how in building, programming, or using computers.  The term dates back to the 1950's, when students at MIT were encouraged to become more familiar with computers.  The word continued to be used in a positive light through the 1960’s and 70’s when many computer clubs were formed on the west coast, including those attended by Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

     

     

    While many members’ primary interest was still academic, as the Internet grew some hackers wanted to use their know-how to do damage to networks and other computers, or “crack” their system. The media sensationalized these “crackers” but still used their original title “hackers.”  Many computer enthusiasts still insist that the correct name for what we commonly refer to as “hackers” is actually “crackers.”

     

     

     

     

    2.8. Installing Wireshark under Windows

    In this section we explore installing Wireshark under Windows from the binary packages.

    2.8.1. Install Wireshark

    You may acquire a binary installer of Wireshark named something like: wiresharksetup-

    x.y.z.exe. The Wireshark installer includes WinPcap, so you don't need to download and

    install two separate packages.

    Simply download the Wireshark installer from: http://www.wireshark.org/download.html#releases and

    execute it. Beside the usual installer options like where to install the program, there are several optional

    components.

    Tip: Just keep the defaults!

    If you are unsure which settings to select, just keep the defaults.

    2.8.1.1. "Choose Components" page

    Wireshark (both Wireshark GTK1 and 2 user interfaces cannot be installed at the same time):

    Wireshark GTK1 - Wireshark is a GUI network protocol analyzer.

    Wireshark GTK2 - Wireshark is a GUI network protocol analyzer (using the modern GTK2 GUI

    toolkit, recommended).

    GTK-Wimp - GTKWimp is the GTK2 windows impersonator (native Win32 look and feel, recommended).

    TShark - TShark is a command-line based network protocol analyzer.

    You may try the GTK1 selection if you experience any GUI problems with GTK2, e.g. Windows with

    only 256 (8bit) color displays won't work well with GTK2. However, the older GTK1 user interface

    doesn't provide some advanced analyze and statistics features.

    Plugins / Extensions (for the Wireshark and TShark dissection engines):

    Dissector Plugins - Plugins with some extended dissections.

    Tree Statistics Plugins - Plugins with some extended statistics.

    Mate - Meta Analysis and Tracing Engine (experimental) - user configurable extension(s) of the

    display filter engine, see http://wiki.wireshark.org/Mate for details.

    SNMP MIBs - SNMP MIBs for a more detailed SNMP dissection.

    Tools (additional commnand line tools to work with capture files):

    Editcap - Editcap is a program that reads a capture file and writes some or all of the packets into another

    capture file.

    Building and Installing Wireshark

    23

    Text2Pcap - Text2pcap is a program that reads in an ASCII hex dump and writes the data into a

    libpcap-style capture file.

    Mergecap - Mergecap is a program that combines multiple saved capture files into a single output

    file.

    Capinfos - Capinfos is a program that provides information on capture files.

    User's Guide - Local installation of the User's Guide. The Help buttons on most dialogs will require an

    internet connection to show help pages if the User's Guide is not installed locally.

    2.8.1.2. "Additional Tasks" page

    Start Menu Shortcuts - add some start menu shortcuts.

    Desktop Icon - add a Wireshark icon to the desktop.

    Quick Launch Icon - add a Wireshark icon to the Explorer quick launch toolbar.

    Associate file extensions to Wireshark - Associate standard network trace files to Wireshark.

    2.8.1.3. "Install WinPcap?" page

    The Wireshark installer contains the latest released WinPcap installer.

    If you don't have WinPcap installed, you won't be able to capture live network traffic, but you will still

    be able to open saved capture files.

    Currently installed WinPcap version - the Wireshark installer detects the currently installed Win-

    Pcap version.

    Install WinPcap x.x - if the currently installed version is older than the one coming with the Wireshark

    installer (or WinPcap is not installed at all), this will be selected by default.

    Start WinPcap service "NPF" at startup - so users without administrative privileges can capture.

    More WinPcap info:

    • Wireshark related: http://wiki.wireshark.org/WinPcap

    • General WinPcap info: http://www.winpcap.org

    2.8.1.4. Command line options

    You can simply start the Wireshark installer without any command line parameters, it will show you the

    usual interactive installer.

    For special cases, there are some command line parameters available:

    Building and Installing Wireshark

    24

    /NCRC disables the CRC check

    /S runs the installer or uninstaller silently with default values. Please note: The silent installer won't

    install WinPCap!

    /desktopicon installation of the desktop icon, =yes - force installation, =no - don't install, otherwise

    use defaults / user settings. This option can be useful for a silent installer.

    /quicklaunchicon installation of the quick launch icon, =yes - force installation, =no - don't install,

    otherwise use defaults / user settings.

    /D sets the default installation directory ($INSTDIR), overriding InstallDir and InstallDirRegKey. It

    must be the last parameter used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the

    path contains spaces.

    Example:

    wireshark-setup-0.99.5.exe /NCRC /S /desktopicon=yes

    /quicklaunchicon=no /D=C:\Program Files\Foo

    2.8.2. Manual WinPcap Installation

    Note!

    As mentioned above, the Wireshark installer takes care of the installation of Win-

    Pcap, so usually you don't have to worry about WinPcap at all!

    The following is only necessary if you want to try a different version than the one included in the Wireshark

    installer, e.g. because a new WinPcap (beta) version was released.

    Additional WinPcap versions (including newer alpha or beta releases) can be downloaded from the following

    locations:

    • The main WinPcap site: http://www.winpcap.org

    • The Wiretapped.net mirror: http://www.mirrors.wiretapped.net/security/packet-capture/winpcap

    At the download page you will find a single installer exe called something like "auto-installer", which

    can be installed under various Windows systems, including NT4.0/2000/XP/Vista.

    2.8.3. Update Wireshark

    From time to time you may want to update your installed Wireshark to a more recent version. If you join

    Wireshark's announce mailing list, you will be informed about new Wireshark versions, see Section

    1.6.4, “Mailing Lists” for details how to subscribe to this list.

    New versions of Wireshark usually become available every 8-12 weeks. Updating Wireshark is done the

    same way as installing it, you simply download and start the installer exe. A reboot is usually not required

    and all your personal settings remain unchanged.

    2.8.4. Update WinPcap

    Building and Installing Wireshark

    25

    New versions of WinPcap are less frequently available, maybe only once in a year. You will find Win-

    Pcap update instructions where you can download new WinPcap versions. Usually you have to reboot

    the machine after installing a new WinPcap version.

    Warning!

    If you have an older version of WinPcap installed, you must un-install it before installing

    the current version. Recent versions of the WinPcap installer will take care of this.

    You can use any known APIs / Softwares to gather data of LAN.

    It can be used as hack tool preparatory as it can be used to analyze and seperate packets.But thats a tedious work.so try other tools like cain and abel they got nice capabilities to crack ur windows network.
