Free Java Update (Required)

This is just another ploy from DomaIQ to get you to download their software. You see this pop-up in a new browser window when you access a torrent download using IsoHunt:

If search for DomaIQ and read the small print at the bottom of the page that you see the above you will see that "is distributing modified installers which differ from the originals." i.e. fakes. are the same company that try and make you believe that you need to update your Flash Player - all they are trying to do is get you to do is to download their marketing toolbar:

Above is a screenshot taken from the DomaIQ website that is encouraging webmasters to include their marketing tool on their sites.

Aircrack on a Galaxy S4

Details of the complete installation and instructions for running Black Ubuntu and a full penetration suite on the new S4 are on my website,

  • Gedit
  •  airmon-ng - with list of wireless adapters that are required.
  •  mtpfs
  •  libusb
  •  yum
  •  tcpdump
  •  Backtrack
  •  curl
  •  git
  •  Metasploit (fully working)

Those claiming that they have this running on an S3 I suggest you look at the release notes and see that most of the things that have been tested (i.e. working) are NOT the penetration elements.

The RTL8187 based wireless adapter

There seems to be a view that an RTL8187 based wireless adapter is needed to allow the operation of aircrack-ng. In fact there are many adapters that will allow this in addition to the RTL8187. You need to check the specifications of the adapter that you are thinking of using.

If you are running a Linux implementation of aircrack-ng you will also need to obtain the Linux drivers for your particular NIC. This will often determine the suitability of such a device. In addition the drivers to allow an adapter to operate in an "injection" mode on an Android device is even more restrictive.

Android APKs that supposedly compatible with the Samsung tablet GT-P3113 are supposed to need this type of adapter. You need to check this before you make a purchase. Just because there are statements made on the Google Play Store that an application will work is not a guarantee that it will!
