My USB-to-serial cable arrived at work today, it works a treat with Fedora 5/6 using the built-in kernel drivers, it identifies itself as /dev/ttyUSB0. I tried it with some Cisco and Sun equipment earlier.

I’ve been playing with THC-Hydra today, and some password lists borrowed from John The Ripper.

Just watched The Sarah Jane Adventures pilot episode that I missed on New Years Day, it wasn’t great.
