Test your network by hacking it

Nowadays, almost each one of us owns a wireless router.But the wireless encryptions give us a false sense of security. In this article I`m going to show you a way for you to test your own network for vulnerabilities. The only way to make sure your personal information remains personal is secure your home network. The best way to do that of course is try to hack it yourself. This way when you find its vulnerabilities you might be able to fix them. If you think that your WEP or WPA-PSK network encryptions is unbrakeable, you are wrong.

The software I`m talking about is infact a whole operating system based on linux. As the developers wrote “BackTrack is intended for all audiences from the most savvy security professionals to early newcomers to the information security field. BackTrack promotes a quick and easy way to find and update the largest database of security tool collection to-date.”

There is a LiveCD and Thumbdrive version of the software, so you don`t have to install it on your HDD to try it. It is pretty straight forward software if you don`t understand something you can find most of the features explained in Google and even YouTube.

This are just a few of the things you can do with backtrack. It is an amazing OS, showing us how vulnerable our networks are.

Of course you can ask your questions in the comment section.
