Real life got in the way sorry folks, but the good news is we're due to get back on track by next week. Which left us with sort of dilemma. All though we hadn't managed to get some of the shows out, we had recorded some segments. We had two interviews and a a new segment with Tom Mackenzie in the can. So we decided to bundle them together, and ship as is.

So we start with a interview taken about 2 weeks ago with Javvad Malik one of the organisers of BSidesLondon;

Then we'll have UpSploits Vuln of the Week segment

Followed by an interview with the boys from the seccubus development team.

Ending with me and Ryan discussing some news from a few weeks ago.

Grabbing some of this weeks news headlines with FTW news man for the week Tom Mackenzie, as regular news man Ryan Ward was AWOL

"Finux's Leak of the Week" Is a story related to the missing child Madeleine McCann

UK police 'developed' evidence against McCanns

In a article published by The Guardian on Monday the 12th of December it was reported that;

British ambassador's reported comments to their US counterpart offer some interesting and truly shocking if true, insight into role of UK police service in 2007 investigation

British police helped to "develop evidence" against Madeleine McCann's parents as they were investigated by Portuguese police as formal suspects in the disappearance of their daughter, the US ambassador to Portugal was told by his British counterpart in September 2007.

The meeting between US ambassador Al Hoffman and the British ambassador, Alexander Ellis, took place a fortnight after Kate and Gerry McCann were formally declared suspects, by Portuguese police.

The McCanns have said that there was "absolutely no evidence to implicate them in Madeleine's disappearance whatsoever."

In a diplomatic cable marked confidential, the US ambassador reported: "Without delving into the details of the case, Ellis admitted that the British police had developed the current evidence against the McCann parents, and he stressed that authorities from both countries were working co-operatively."

The comments attributed to the ambassador appear to contradict the widespread perception at the time that Portuguese investigators were the driving force behind the treatment of the McCanns as suspects in the case.

In one of two cables referring to the McCann case, the US ambassador notes: "Madeleine McCann's disappearance in the south of Portugal in May 2007 has generated international media attention with controversy surrounding the Portuguese-led police investigation and the actions of Madeleine's parents."

He reported that his British counterpart thought "that the media frenzy was to be expected and was acceptable as long as government officials keep their comments behind closed doors".

Don't give up on Maddy

It was not until 21 July 2008 that the Portuguese authorities shelved their investigation and lifted the suspect status of the McCanns.

Responding to the contents of the cable, a spokesman for the McCanns told the Guardian:

"This is an entirely historic note that is more than three years old. Subsequently, Kate and Gerry had their arguido status lifted, with the Portuguese authorities making it perfectly clear that there was absolutely no evidence to implicate them in Madeleine's disappearance whatsoever.

"To this day, they continue to work tirelessly on the search for their daughter, co-operating when appropriate with both the Portuguese and British authorities."

In 2008, when a dossier detailing investigations by Portuguese police was made public, it emerged British scientists had warned that DNA tests on a sample from the McCanns' holiday hire car were inconclusive days before they were made suspects. It is known that the Forensic Science Service analysed material sent to Britain by Portuguese police. A spokesman for Leicestershire police said their involvement in the investigation was limited to co-ordinating UK-based inquiries on behalf of the Portuguese authorities.

Finux's "For the Win Linux Tip of the Week"

If you are running Ubuntu or another Debian like distribution and want to take a copy of what packages you have installed then this simple command can be a life saver. Its also handy if you want to build a particular machine for a certain job and recreate it somewhere else;

dpkg --get-selections > packagelist.txt

This will put the entire list in packagelist.txt. You could then install the same packages on a different computer with:

dpkg --set-selections < debianlist.txt

You should bear in mind that you would also need to copy over configuration files from /etc when copying your system to a new computer.

To actually install the selections, use:

apt-get -u dselect-upgrade.

"Finux's Leak of the Week" Ireland, and US extraordinary renditions. In US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks its gradually drawing a picture that the Irish government has ignored public opposition about suspected US rendition flights through its territory, and in fact looked for ways to co-operate with alleged US practise whilst trying to avoiding liability and political fallout.

Finux's "For the Win Linux Tip of the Week" The GNU wget package is a non-interactive utility for downloading files from the Web. It supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies.:

You may want to retrieve a number of files from a web site, such as all the ogg files, or maybe all the isos

wget -r -np -nd --accept=ogg http://example.com/ftw/shows/

the -r is for recursively through that directory

the --np represents no parent directories, making sure you stay within your desired down load section,

Adding the --accept argument with a file extensions (or extensions separated by a comma) will grab only those files ending in the specified extension.

You can also use an input file with wget, so you may have a list of resources you want to automatically download then you can add them to a file.

wget -i filename.txt

Or if you have a poor Internet connection then?

$wget -c http://example.com/really-big-file.iso

The -c option tells wget to continue and retry until it has completed downloading.

You may want to mirror a site as well, this too can be done through wget

wget -m -k http://www.example.com/

Mirror a site, converting its links to work locally, so that you can move the site to another server. Use the ‘-H’ option if images are loaded from another site.

You can find more information by typing man wget in the terminal.

man wget
