This time on the show, access your cloud via explorer, Mubix joins us to talk keylogging with AutoIt, and a few of your tips and questions. All that and more, this time on Hak5!

There are plenty of Cloud Services available now but not many of them actually hook all of your services up so you have access to many of them through the same window. Gladinet Cloud Desktop is an emerging software application that does something kind of like that. It’s available in 32 / 64 bit versions, and only works on Windows machines. It seems to be built for a target audience of companies and business professionals, with a starter edition being free but all the others come with a 30 day free trial, then you pay somewhere near $50 a year. By the way, click buy it now and there’s a referral program where they give you $10 for each friend that signs up. They also have a cloud server starting at $5 per month, but I’m just going to stick with checking out the Cloud Desktop application.

Download the version of your choice, and go through the on screen setup. With their Cloud Storage Desktop you can access your cloud storage on a number of different sites (i.e. Box.net, amazon S3, Rackspace, even your own FTP server, etc.). This seems to be really handy for anyone that has Amazon S3 because they have several options for all of the applications. Although, I did notice that a lot of services are not available, like Dropbox and Spideroak, and Google Docs won’t work if you use two factor authentication. When you mount your online storage from another company, you have to enter your username and password which are stored locally. They say on their site the security is in-memory only, SSL Secured and AES 256 bit encrypted. You can also have your cloud folder synced to all of your computers if you want to.

After this super simple setup, you now have access to all of your online storage through Windows Explorer, no need to log into your internet browser or open another program. All you need is some cloud storage somewheres, and Gladinet mounts it as a virtual drive for all your syncing needs. Looks cool! Just wish the more advanced versions didn’t cost so much… I’m such a penny pincher. So all in all, Gladinet looks really cool and it’s SUPER easy. I like it but they have some limits to my needs. They need to join forces with some other companies like my fav- SpiderOak- and add the two factor authentication abilities for Google Docs. What do you think? You can always email us or comment and we’ll be sure to check those out.

    Regarding Mubix’s Clipboard Keylogger, it still shows the AutoIT script running in the bottom right corner. Use the #NoTrayIcon directive at the top of the script.

    Important if you’re going to be doing something that may make people wonder… like a logger of any sort.

    it’s been bugging me for the past couple of shows and I want to ask. wtf is up with Coleen’s voice. It sounds like a man ? is he/she a man ? seriously ? transvestite perhaps ? idk… confused here ?

    • Linac

      Argh, definitely not a man…

      Her sound levels were definitely off though. She has a unique low yet soft voice timbre, which is a challenge for whoever is editing the soundtrack.

    Another option to backup to the cloud is CloudBerry Online Backup with friendly user interface, strong data encryption and scheduling capabilities that automates backup and restore processes to Amazon S3 and a few other leading cloud storages. It is onetime fee and the rest what you pay for Amazon S3. Besides, there is no proprietary data format and you can access your data using other Amazon s3 tools. You can download a free trial at

    For changing escape and caps lock this method is more reliable

    ‘setxkbmap -option caps:swapescape’
    directly on terminal, need to do every time


    ‘Option “XkbOptions” “caps:swapescape” ‘
    in your ‘/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf’ file


    Section “InputClass”
    Identifier “Keyboard Defaults”
    MatchIsKeyboard “yes”
    Option “XkbLayout” “us”
    Option “XkbVariant” “altgr-intl”
    Option “XkbOptions” “caps:swapescape”

    I have one of those old Toshiba Satellite laptops in a milk crate. It was working but I can not figure out what is wrong with it. Haven’t really devoted time to it because I have plenty of working machines.Lastly, VINTAGE ROCKS!!

  • TS

    Just saw that strange post about Colleen, Her voice is beautiful, try looking into your loved one’s eyes while they are talking to you like that and then switch off the computer,
    (-Stephane and Linnac you have to get out more !)
