Run Kali in a VM and get a supported USB 802.11 dongle and a USB ethernet adapter and forward both to the Kali VM. While stuff like aircrack-ng and Kismet might work on OS X, having a proper full Linux system makes pentesting a lot easier. Try it with stuff like VirtualBox!

While I am generally less-than satisfied with security testing on OS X, many Kali-inherited utilities run fine under OS X via HomeBrew, e.g., afl-fuzz, aircrack-ng, amap, argus, arp-scan, arping, binutils, binwalk, bro, capstone, cowpatty, crunch, ettercap, hachoir, hping, ideviceinstaller, ike-scan, ipv6toolkit, john, lft, libdnet, libimobiledevice, libnet, ...

An that's what a thief would do reinstall it it's easy to get the firmware password. Were u insured? If so talk to Apple about them giving u another one. But straight up truth its long ...

I have this question and tried the other answers. The JohnnyNash and Transparent screen savers both work .. almost. They show the main screen, but external displays go black. The difference between these savers is that JohnnyNash is configured to update in seconds, and Transparent is configured to update in frames-per-second. The Black Light screensaver ...

There is some literature out there for you (e.g.here or here). Basically there is different means of protection. Locating the device (Find my Mac) Surveillance apps (also have a look at the OS X Back to my mac, which reportedly freed some Macs from their thieves) Data security / encryption (e.g. Filevault2 encryption, Firmware password) Physical ...

I suggest you take a look at using Fire-vault 2 on your next Mac. This will keep your data safe. In addition, set a firmware password by following instructions here: http://www.imore.com/how-set-your-macs-firmware-password-and-why-you-shouldnt. This will prevent anyone from booting the Macbook without a password as mentioned below by n1000. If you want to ...

You can't be 100% sure unless you do it yourself (with an Apple provided DVD or DMG).

I've had this question as well and finally went digging. This information is stored in the OS X Privacy database. This db can be accessed with the command-line tool tccutil, but the only ("supported") option is reset. That is of course not very useful here. I found someone at this page who wrote a short python utility to edit this database. Examining the ...

The Digital Signature "selection" is now located in the subject box to the far right ... uncheck to not have the request come up for your user name and password

The firmware password on newer machines isn't stored in nvram anymore (which is why anything newer than around 2010/2011 cannot have the firmware password removed by reseating RAM). Source: https://github.com/munkireport/munkireport-php/issues/43#issuecomment-29738033

The "admin" account you set a password for was "System Administrator (root)". You'll either need to type "System Administrator", or "root" as the user name. This "super user" account is part of the operating system, and can do whatever it wants - including things that have extremely negative consequences. I recommend disabling it. See OS X Mountain Lion: ...

Use Radio Silence. Very simple application, but does the job nicely.

I hate to reference unreleased software, but quite frankly the solution may be for you to enroll now in the iOS 9 public beta or simply wait for it's official Fall release. iOS 9 (at least in its current state) gives the option to set a custom alphanumeric password in place of the familiar 4-digit pin. So, if you have hardware with touch ID capability you ...

There is no security risk. That is only audio and no data access is possible. But there maybe some health concerns if using previously used earphone that are not sterilized. Whipping them with a germs killer wet-tissue or alcohol should do it.

See my answer here: Since the release of 10.10.4, Apple now provides a new tool called trimforce, allowing users to activate TRIM also on unsupported disks. So now you can do: sudo trimforce enable

I've always wondered the same thing: how to keep OS X from storing the WPA passphrase (or PSK) in NVRAM. Using 'nvram' I could never find the variable that I thought held these credentials. Today, I tried booting to a USB live image of Linux and running Chipsec. Its command to list EFI variables has many more results than I was getting by running nvram ...

Using online tools it appears that as of this date/time that is a hard coded IP address from the app called Telegram or Telegram Messenger. Why it's hard coded into the app as IP address doesn't make sense, but it seems to be where it is coming from.

There are a number of ways to do this, depending on your network setup. You could as @tron_jones suggested use isolated networks or VLANs. Another way would be to setup the router so that each class room is on a different subnet i.e. 10.0.1.0/24 for class room 1 10.0.2.0/24 for class room 2 10.0.3.0/24 for class room 3 mDNS / Bonjour does not broadcast ...

If moving to Android is an option, then you clearly don't need anything that's in the account. So just create a new one and link your device to that account instead. And when you do create a new account, be sure to link a mobile phone number and another email address to it, so that the same thing can't happen again.
