Aircrack for Android?

These guys have managed to patch the firmwares of a Nexus One & Galaxy S II devices such that they will be able to set the Monitor-Mode for the Wi-Fi cheapset.

The monitor-mode is required in-order for aircrack to work, because the monitor-mode allows application to receive the entire 802.11 packets instead of the encapsulated ethernet packets. Therefore, contains some information about the encryption which aircrack exploits.

Right now, They don’t have a method for injection of 802.11 packets (which makes aircrack work much faster), but I’m sure they will solve it soon.

My first Thunderbird add-on: Fixing RTL on chat

Lately I’ve upgraded my Thunderbird to version 15.0.1, this new version supports chat which is kinda nice.

One of the problems I had with this feature is that it doesn’t support RTL. So when I’ve written a message to a friend with both Hebrew and English the entire message was scrambled and was unreadable.

So, I’ve decided to write this add-on. This add-on checks if the message is RTL or LTR and adds RTE character when needed.

The extension can be found on Mozilla’s Gallery.
