      And once again! Word files with Macro! But this time, I was the first one to report it to VirusTotal and Hybrid-Analysis! :)

      Virus Macro!

      Here you have the e-mail. The sender is this time the "BOSS Last Name" (A nice improvement! :P) without address, or something like that!

      #MicroPython & #WiPy 2.0/3.0: Geolocation using WLAN

      I was surfing the services that Google offers, I found the Geolocation API. As Google describes the API: it returns a location and accuracy radius based on information about cell towers and WiFi nodes that the mobile client can detect. As I was writing the last post using MicroPython, I thought the WiPy 2.0/3.0 could be a nice "mobile client".

      To use the API you need to get an API key from Google. As a standard user of the API, you get:

      #MicroPython: WeMos (ESP32) and Amazon Echo (Alexa) - Switching LED Colors!

      I don’t have any Belkin WeMo system or Philips Hue light bulbs. However, I have two ESP32 running MicroPython (see my last article), and a W2812b LED strip, and I thought I should be able to say, "Echo/Alexa, turn on the kitchen light" or "Echo/Alexa, turn on the blue light" and It should work with this setup.

      And... it works as you can see in this video!

      Another quick tutorial, this time for MicroPython on ESP32/ESP8266. You can find all the information that I'm writing in this post in different articles on the Internet but I've not found anything that summarizes all the topics. That is why I am writting this article. I included some links at the end of each topic to extend the info. Feel free to visit them, if you want more information, or write a comment I will try to reply it ASAP!

      I was surfing the web for new hacking software and hardware tools and I found the Hacker Arsenal website. This website offers "ARTILLERY FOR CYBER WARRIORS" as they said; it is basically hardware and firmware for pentester. In summary, they have actually three products especially for Wi-Fi Sniffing.

      #ProjectDIVA: nRF24Things working on Android Things DP5.1

      Android Things | 1 min | 560


      I've updated the code of the nRF24Things application. The application is now working on Android Things DP5.1. There is a Bug on DP5.1 related to the SPI units. You can read more on my last post here.

      I've tried to update the SensorTag-Things application but I didn't work. DP5.1 has still problems with Bluetooth. Due to the crash by debugging, I found and reported another bug to Google. Read here.

      As the title says, this is a getting started with Android Things. It should be my first post, but, it's better now than never. I'm posting this to summarize the steps to install Android Things on your Raspberry Pi.

      Google announced Android Things on December of 2016. It's a modified version of the Android that we all know, but for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The architecture of the SDK is described in the following figure:

      Yesterday I received an email from an address that should look like my boss email address. It was something like this: "Boss.Name@our-institute.uni-hannover.de nancy@hillstar.brcoxmail.com" with the subject: Rech QK - 163-DA7666 Riva, Mauro and a text saying:

      Guten Tag, Riva, Mauro

      Android Things DP5.1 is out! and the bugs were fixed!!! You can check the release notes here!.

      You don't need to change the config.txt for the display settings and the debugger issues were solved and it is working again (tested! - it stops at the breakpoints)!

      You can download the zipped image using the Android Things Console! Check this post for more information!

      There are some problems with my two Android Things repositories and the applications are not working as expected :( but I will be updating the GitHub repositories this weekend!

      Stay tuned! and have a nice friday!
