Kali Linux Virtual Machine Usb Wifi Adapter Help! [migrated]

First of all thank you for reading this.

  • I have Kali Linux VirtualBox 64-Bit (version: 2019.4) as a virtual computer.
  • I’m running it on Oracle Box(version: 6.0.14).
  • My usb adapter is : TL-WN8200ND.

I am trying to connect my virtual computer to internet with my usb wifi adapter.

  1. Is it possible to connect my virtual computer with this usb wifi adapter?
  2. If i can connect my usb wifi adapter to my virtual computer, will i be able to do attacks such as wifi cracking or MITMF attacks?
  3. Can this wifi adapter limit my hacking conditions?

If there is a solution to setup this usb wifi adapter to my virtual computer I would be very pleased if you can tell me how to do it. I am new to Kali linux.

With a USB Type-C port, can you switch DisplayPort or HDMI Alternate Mode back to USB after using an adapter? [on hold]

USB Type-C itself is just a connector, and it supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode, as well as HDMI Alternate Mode, depending on the manufacturer.

Does this at all mean that if you’re using a DisplayPort or HDMI adapter in your USB Type-C, e.g., on a MacBook Air, then the monitor’s side itself could switch back from the Alternate Mode of DisplayPort or HDMI back to the plain-old USB?

Is it normal that the service WMI Performance Adapter always starts when launching Chrome browser? Whats the reason

Is it normal that the service WMI Performance Adapter (WmiApSrv.exe) always starts when launching Chrome browser? Whats the reason?

I have heared this service can be maliciously used to “communicate” through the internet via open ports?

When I forcefull end this process in the taskmanager, Chrome keeps running perfectly, without issues.

Could it be that this WMI process is needed because one of Chrome’s features called “Conceal local IP addresses with mDNS hostnames”?

Thanks!

How do I know a USB Bluetooth Adapter is safe to use?

I’ve found several extremely cheap USB Bluetooth options and, while the reviews say they work, I am skeptical of them because they are so cheap/have no name brand recognition.

Here is the main one I am looking at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071WKP37Q/

My real question: How do I know this isn’t a sort of trojan horse that functions as described but also adds malicious software to my computer without me knowing/at the same time?

The device would have to have some kind of flash memory on board, and who knows what will load when plugged in. I doubt Amazon is doing any kind of testing, so I need to put faith in the third-party company (Lovin Product) selling it, which is, according to their website, ‘an importer and distributor of wireless products…’ (not the manufacturer)

Not trying to call out this company/product in particular, just curious if anyone has thoughts on this. Am I overthinking this, or are these legitimate concerns?

Any thoughts?

No Bluetooth Adapter found Ubuntu 19.04

My Bluetooth adapter suddenly disappeared, and I have been trying to fix it but no luck.

I have tried to enable or start it again but its status is still inactive.

~$   sudo systemctl enable bluetooth Synchronizing state of bluetooth.service with SysV service script with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install. Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable bluetooth  ~$   sudo systemctl status bluetooth ‚óŹ bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)   Active: inactive (dead)     Docs: man:bluetoothd(8)  Oct 14 00:33:19 lau-desktop systemd[1]: Condition check resulted in Bluetooth service being skipped.

What else can I do?

Network manager goes bad after hot unplugging an external usb wifi adapter

While my Lubuntu 18.04 is connected to a wifi network via an external wifi adapter, I hot unplug the external wifi adapter.

Symptoms of the problem:

  1. When I plug the external wifi adapter back to my computer, no wifi network is detected, even though both networking and wifi are enbaled.
  2. The top process shown in the output of top is:

     PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND  1068 root      20   0 1029552   8060   4864 R  85.7  0.1  29:25.70 NetworkManager 

    Trying to kill it by sudo kill 1068 or sudo service NetworkManager restart/stop or sudo systemctl restart/stop NetworkManager will result in hanging forever

    Trying to run any sudo command e.g. sudo pm-suspend will result in the same forever hanging

  3. The usb port on my laptop where the external wifi adapter was originally plugged in has also stop working for other external devices, unless I reboot my Lubuntu.

How can I solve the problem? Preferably not rebooting my Lubuntu.

How can I avoid the problem in the future? Is NetworkManager the culprit? Will some alternative be better and which ones?

Thanks.


Log:

This is part of /var/log/syslog around the time when the problem happened. (I unplugged a keyword to free up a usb port for a flash drive, and then unplugged the external wifi adapter, to free up a usb port for a printer, and then plugged it back. )

USB Type-C to HDMI adapter does not work on Ubuntu – no driver found

I bought a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter from ELECOM (the brand name written in the adapter)

The monitor does not detect/work with this adapter.

I have tested the monitor (HDMI cable only) with a different laptop and it is working.

I conclude that the problem is the USB t-C to HDMI adapter is the one to blame.

By checking the dmesg, I get this when I plug in the device:

[ 296.081961] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 5 [ 311.731196] usb 1-1: new low-speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd [ 311.885375] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1f29, idProduct=0000, bcdDevice= 0.00 [ 311.885377] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 311.885378] usb 1-1: Product: ANALOGIXSEMI COM [ 311.885380] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: BILLBOARD CLASS [ 311.885381] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 201501ANX001 

I also tried in Windows 10 system, and it does not work as well, my laptop is dual-boot.

My OS info is this:

UBUNTU 10.04 LTS Linux 5.0.0-31-generic #33~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 10:20:39 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 

By checking on Windows 10, the USB in the device manager shows a warning with the Invalid Device Descriptor as the warning message.

By checking in Linux, with the lsusb I see this for this adapter:

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc.

Where this line is the one that is related to the USB adapter (the before last):

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1f29:0000 

By checking it using lsusb -t I get this:

/:  Bus 04.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 5000M /:  Bus 03.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 480M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 1, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 2, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M /:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/6p, 5000M /:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/12p, 480M     |__ Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 3, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 1, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 2, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 0, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 7: Dev 4, If 0, Class=Wireless, Driver=btusb, 12M     |__ Port 7: Dev 4, If 1, Class=Wireless, Driver=btusb, 12M     |__ Port 10: Dev 5, If 0, Class=Communications, Driver=cdc_acm, 12M     |__ Port 10: Dev 5, If 1, Class=CDC Data, Driver=cdc_acm, 12M 

Above, the line that is regarding to the adatar is this one:

    |__ Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M 

So, as we can see, the speed is only 1.5M, and there is no driver for this as shown.

Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M I guess there is no driver for this device, as indicated above.

Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS Update breaks Wireless Adapter : Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377
