My Random Problems with Kali
I'm a newbie in this Null Byte, so I do have some few questions that you would think kind of boring to answer and I might not get the answer just by Google it randomly. But, as there is a really relevant place to ask such as NullByte, I'll ask what problems that I have encountered and why.
For your information, I run Kali on a virtual machine and I use ALFA external wifi adapter for packet injection.
1.When trying to crack a wifi password, I need to use an external wifi adapter such as AWUS036H , but such problems occurred;
-when I run into a monitor mode for my interface which is wlan0,
there are some processes that we need to kill and one of them are the Internet connection(NetworkManager). When I successfully kill all of the processes, and I try to open Iceweasel, there is no internet connection. So my question for this problem is,
"Do we need to disconnect to the internet to crack a wifi password, why?'
2.When trying to create a Fake Access Point (suddenly, in the middle of the way) (aircrack -c 11 -e freewifi mon0)
I get this error saying,
==>Error: Got channel -1, expected a value > 0
So, my question for this problem is,
"Why did this happen and how to fix this thing up and never get the error again?"
3.If I am not mistaken, I have read an article regarding how to retrieve back deleted files, even if we delete it permanently in the recycle bin. My question is,
"Can we delete it permanently from our computer system and never be found by anyone even if we trace it carefully? "
- I'm on my way learning C++ but I found that Python is more user-friendly, and my question is,
"Is it better to learn C++ and Python at the same time because they have some similarities between them or I should finish my C++ learning first?"
- Windows 8 problem.
At first, I want to install Kali as dual boot, but suddenly I have problem during the boot process. Even if I disable the SecureBoot(in the UEFI firmware settings), but still, Windows booted first and Kali would never be found, even if I already installed Kali and Grub boot loader, in the UEFI settings, there is only one boot in the boot order which is Windows.
If I bought a second hand laptop which has an i5 processor and a normal wifi card and graphic card and a small RAM, and I want to give it a little change, I want to change it manually to i7 and change the wifi card that could be associated for wifi cracking and packet injection and change the graphic card for a good and better life :) and change the RAM to 8GB or 16.My question is,
"Is it worth or I should buy a nice new one?"
My question is , "If I downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7, does Secure Boot also will be removed (as I know, Windows 7 doesn't have a SecureBoot), and then I will successfully have a Grub Boot Menu(for example) on my pc during the start up?
For now, these are the problems that I have encountered and still trying to find an absolute solution. I will not be in rush waiting for the answer from this community, but I hope there would be someone willing to help me as I really have interest in the art of cryptography. I'm sorry if you couldn't understand my English but I hope you could try to understand. :)
