Kinectasploit: Hack Tools Meet Kinect

Unknown Lamer posted about a year ago | from the this-is-unix dept.

Security 33

mask.of.sanity writes "While Hollywood often fails to portray hacking, one researcher has made the art of exploitation look more like the big screen. Kinectasploit is hacking in the form of a first-person shooter that melds Microsoft's Kinect controls with 20 hacking tools including Metasploit, Snort, Nessus, John the Ripper and Ettercap. The work in progress can be downloaded from github."

Real Hackers(tm) don't hack from a device that records your face, voice, and surroundings... Just sayin'.

Real hackers have a small piece of TP covering the lens of their integrated webcam ! Bonus if not only while fapping.

Real "hackers" with experience in network probing, intrusion and forensics also don't need a video game to use tools like nmap and ettercap. This is just a neat toy that provides a layer of visual abstraction to help people better understand the tools that are employed during a (legal) pentest, not a suite of security tools for 00b3r-31337 bl4khA7 PwNl0rDz to expedite their trips to prison.

God...Not More Of This Crap (-1)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#43717039)

We've had enough Microsoft paying people to hype their crap motion controls already.

No one gives a shit.

Microsoft's Eye Toy ripoff (aka Kinect) are sitting in junk closets alongside HD-DVD players and piles of old dead Xbox 360s gathering dust.

Re:God...Not More Of This Crap (2, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#43717321)

Uh, the Eye Toy was just a basic Web cam.

Re:God...Not More Of This Crap (1)

GTRacer (234395) | about a year ago | (#43718629)

It was just a cam, but it was paired with software that did the motion recognition (usually poorly unless you had floodlights in the room). EyeToy compatible games touted motion control with just the EyeToy and your living room. Pity it was so bad at actually detecting accurate motion. I tried mine with DDR and with the EyeToy sampler disc and I failed to get any real accuracy out of it. Then again, I paid a whopping $10 for the EyeToy yoga bundle on clearance.

I wound up using it as my Skype cam as I didn't have any other webcams and I didn't really want to sink more money into hardware I used rarely.

The problem was EyeToy worked by using background differencing. It took two images - and then differenced them to find the motion. (It used a few more frames than that to determine what was background and what wasn't, but the idea holds).

As you can imagine, this works to a limited extent, but if you move too slowly, the differencing algorithm fails because you get low pass filtered as background. In addition, you can't differentiate between things at different depths, so if something falls behind you, it's treated as your motion.

Kinect adds depth sensing (via IR dots) to add depth, making it easier to determine background from not background, as well as do skeletal tracking and such. This gives the ability to differentiate between background movement and foreground, separate multiple people out, etc,

Neuromancer the game (1)

Watching the video I'm reminded of the hacking sequences from the Neuromancer game.

Re:Neuromancer the game (0)

Or just plain Neuromancer. Mix this with the Rift, and watch out for Black ICE.

Though it'll probably turn out more like Snow Crash. Neil Stephenson is already writing the swordfighting algorithm [subutai.mn] .

What's the point. (1)

evensteven6 (2922781) | about a year ago | (#43717541)

Positive: different expression (than strictly technical) of a tool. Negative: waste of a bunch of peoples time. Conclusion: product made exploiting hacking hype in mainstream America ----> Fail

Re:What's the point. (1)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#43717627)

It's the very definition of 'hacking' away at something; whatever floats your boat. I can assure you that there's much, much more software out there under the guise of something 'useful' that is definitely a waste of people's time. Who cares.

Someone needs to put this together with Daedalus (1)

or maybe someone has, the releases are only months apart after all. Daedalus is that Japanese cyber attack visualization thing http://www.diginfo.tv/v/12-0116-r-en.php [diginfo.tv]
