This week Darren is joined by Rob Fuller.
Put together by a band of IT ninjas, security professionals and hardcore gamers, Hak5 isn't your typical tech show. We take on hacking in the old-school sense, covering everything from network security, open source and forensics, to DIY modding and the homebrew scene. Then we wrap it all up with a healthy dose of cocktails and geek comedy. Damn the warranties, it's time to Trust your Technolust.

Mahmoud, as well as many others, wrote in to ask about the cross-platform compatibility of the encryption set setup on Hak5 episode 620 using cryptsetup.
The short answer is, no, it's just for Linux. If you're looking for something both open source and cross platform look no further than Truecrypt
Following up on last week's question about IP spoofing so users in the US can try out Spotify, we've got just the trick without a proxy. Ok, well sorta. If you happen to have a beta invite and a friend, perhapse on IRC, in an allowed country it's just a matter of having them sign up for you. The only limitation is that you'll need to have your account signed into from your "home country" every 14 days. On the other hand if you decide to spring for the $9.99/mo premium account you, supposedly, don't have such limitations. Thanks to Jouni in Finland for hooking me up. I'll be sad when its game over in two weeks. Or will it?
Hacking isn't just about remote code execution. Well, I mean, that's fun and all but rather than exploiting the server, how about exploiting the Human OS. In this segment Mubix demonstrates David Kennedy (aka Rel1k)'s tool, The Social Engineering Toolkit. Despite some challenges with clients that weren't setup with Java, Mubix successfully demonstrates meterpreter in conjunction with a cloned site.
@Bluesmanchukk writes in to ask about Mac Address Spoofing. Darren and Rob discuss their favorite tools for the job: ifconfig (Linux), GNU MAC Changer (Linux), MadMACs (Windows), Mac Randomizer (Linux).
Stoned33 wrote in to ask for our picks for simple online collaboration. Aside from the obvious Google Wave, Rob recommends the recently Google-Acquired yet still operating Etherpad. This real-time document editor is like multi-player notepad on crack. Give it a shot.
