Tutorial Contest Ending Soon - 01-01-2010

Last month was our best month in terms of visitors, but we are still lacking on entries for the 2009 Tutorial Contest. The prizes are much better with all 3 places getting shirts and first place getting a choice between a $120 modified modem (with memory upgrade) or a ticket to Defcon 18. Help spread the word about this contest and get your submissions in before 01-01-2010. Please submit all entries to rat@soldierx.com

Agent Steal Public Release - A Gift From SX To The Geek Squad

After weeks of testing by crew members and VIP site members, Agent Steal is ready for public release. This tool was written as an apology to Geek Squad for our community cracking their MRI. If it confuses you why Geek Squad would want a tool to steal files off of a customer's PC, maybe you should read Consumerist Catches Geek Squad Stealing Porn. This tool was written in February of 2009, so it took a long time for me to get around to releasing it. Future Labs projects will hopefully have a much faster turnaround time. We already have plans for password stealing add-on tools, so hopefully those will be released before the holidays.

New PSP tutorial up

Today, a second PSP tutorial has been made available which continues where the first left off by explaining how to enable functions usually available in Custom Firmware on models like the the 2000 series with TA-088v3 motherboards and PSP 3000 series which cannot have custom firmware flashed onto them. With the completion of this tutorial, I wish to receive input on if I should do another PSP related tutorial or make a tutorial for another console.

Reverse Engineering Section Added To Neophyte's Guide

With the releases of various software modifications being released (ie MRI 5.1.0.0) by various members, more and more people keep asking us how to reverse engineer software. While none of us have had time to write a definitive guide, pirrup has offered a neophyte's guide to reverse engineering at http://www.soldierx.com/Neophytes-Guide-I-Want-Reverse-Engineer-Software. Please take some time to check it out if you are interested in the subject. If you know a decent amount about reverse engineering and would like to contribute to the group, please contact RaT. Agent Steal has been released to VIP and above members of the site, so expect a public release soon. Not a VIP yet? Support us by buying a shirt and become a VIP today!

sn4ggl3 Replaces Amp As Presidential Adviser In The High Council

sn4ggl3, a mysterious hacker from SX's past, has decided to return to the group as the Adviser to RaT. This position was previously held by Amp who helped SX break away from the previous path that was set by Durandal and Origin. This decision has been made to take SX back to its roots, with a stronger focus on software development (SX Labs). After sn4ggl3 conquered the security world, he got into more complex topics such as advanced data mining and artificial intelligence. He has decided to bless us by leading our labs and advising group decisions. Normally there is a long process for somebody to work their way up from Inductee to High Council, but sn4ggl3 is simply resuming his old position in the group. Any member can come out of retirement at any time, although previous positions are not guaranteed. Amp's new position will be that of enforcer - meaning that he will enforce high council decisions to SX members, SX inductees, and regular site members.
