How To: Reading Files From Windows Partition(NTFS) in Ubuntu Linux

How To: Reading Files From Windows Partition(NTFS) in Ubuntu Linux
The steps were as follows:

First open the root terminal. Then in Gnome you go to Applications->System Tools->Root Terminal

Once in the root account, you should run this command

# fdisk -l

If you’re not on the root account, precede each command with “sudo”, like this:

# sudo fdisk -l

The next step is to mount the hard drive (assuming that it is /dev/hda1) and put it in a directory:

# mkdir /media/windows
# mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222

# cd /media/windows
# ls

If you need to unmount the partition, do this:

# umount /media/windows/

If you have trouble with any of this, or a step was unclear, please comment.

How To: Increase your u/l and d/l ratio in torrent trackers

How to Increase your upload and download ratio in torrent trackers

The vulnerability has been tested on the torrent trackers that use the torrentbits source code (don’t know if it works on other trackers).
The idea of this vulnerability is that you will sniff your torrent info using the HTTP Analyzer and with Firefox you will update your stats to the tracker being identified as a client. This is a simple and short tutorial that shows you how to do it, if you are “more” advanced you can use other tools to do it.

Programs that you need:

HTTP Analyzer
Mozilla Firefox
User Agent Switcher Extension
And an bittorrent client.

Steps:

1. Install the User Agent Switcher Extension (the extension will be used to identify as a bittorrent client to the tracker) to Mozilla Firefox (if you don’t have Firefox, get it!).
