Go Back   Community > Technology > Network (in)Security

Network (in)Security Interesting hacks and cracks. Info on firewalls, TCP/IP, encryption, networks, and security. The ins and outs of the phone system, caller services, how things work, what's illegal and what's not, cellular phones, beepers, telephony legislation, the PUC, ISDN, taps, who's listening, and switches. Talking about phones, hacking systems, technical advice, and such is completely LEGAL in the United States -- it's covered by the First Amendment. What's illegal is conspiracy to commit a crime. So if you say something like "Meet me at 2am so we can crack a can" or "I changed my cell phone's number myself" you are criminally liable. Stating "You can crack a can by doing thus-and-so" or "If you wanted to change a cell phone's number, you could do it like so" is perfectly OK. Posting passwords, calling card numbers, or credit card numbers is forbidden on this network. Posting such info will get you booted off the net.

Be easier to make a batch file with the command

del C:\...\Cookies\*.txt
del C:\...\Temporary internet files\*.*


Syntax and shit:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d....mspx?mfr=true

WIth vb, you will have to have to say something like

Shell ("cmd.exe", del C:\...\Cookies\*.txt)

I would go with a batch file if I were you.

VB looks nice with its fancy buttons and all, but batches work.

as for internet history, temp and cookies are all i can think of....

I'm going to go with 23 on this one, it's like writing a hello world program in C++

Code:
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
        cout << "Hello, world!";
        return 0;
}
when you can just use batch:
Code:
@echo off
echo Hello, world!

Keep in mind that you need to overwrite the data to be secure.

So, I think something like this would work out well

@echo off
:deletes
del C:\...\Cookies\*.txt
del C:\...\Temporary internet files\*.*
:write
start %0
goto write

Does that overwrite the data before being deleted?

No, it clears stuff like usernames. Cookies are still in the cookie folder.
