  • Domains That Are Typos of Other Domains – cert.org
    I’ve been investigating the usage of domains that are typos of other domains. For example, foogle.com is a typo of google.com, and it’s a common one since ‘f’ is next to ‘g’ on the standard keyboard. The existing hypothesis has been that typo domains would be used for malicious purposes.

  • HackRF
    • Sniffing GSM with HackRF – binaryrf.com
      I recently had a play with sniffing some gsm using the HackRF, The clock was a little unstable and drifted quite a bit but in the end I was able to view lots of different system messages etc. I will assume you have a working linux system with gnuradio and hackrf running for this turotial, If not you can use the live cd which I referenced in the software section of the forum its a great tool and the hackrf works right out of the box.

Today I am going to be talking about decoding pocsag pager messages, for this I will assume you are using the great ubuntu live cd for the hackrf.
