    Quick post to link our information from Source Barcelona 2011. @kernelsmith & i discussed alternative use cases for the Metasploit Framework. The presentation was shotgun / AHA! style, meaning we had a number of 5 minute mini-presentations within the larger 50 minute preso.
  • DeepSec Diary – blog.c22.cc/2011/11/22/deepsec-2011-quick-roundup/
    The first day started off with the usual 6am start to get to Vienna in time for registration. I arrived a few minutes late for the keynote, but quickly got into the swing of things. The keynote (How Terrorists Encrypt) was a discussion of how terrorist organisations (mostly Al Qaeda and connected cells) use encryption to communicate.


  • A Duqu Briefing – blog.opensecurityresearch.com
    The landscape of malware has drastically changed in the last few years. It has hardly been a year since the security community identified Stuxnet, which some believe was the most menacing malware in history… And now we have Duqu making the news. The Laboratory of Cryptography and System Security at Budapest University of Technology and Economics identified a worm on October 14th 2011 and named the threat Duqu
    [dyü-kyü] because it creates files with the name prefix “~DQ”.
  • Ask Hacker And Security Gadfly Moxie Marlinspike – interviews.slashdot.org
    I’ve worked as a software engineer, hacker, sailor, captain, and shipwright. I’m currently a fellow at the Institute For Disruptive Studies, run a cloud-based password cracking service, and am a co-founder of Whisper Systems. I like computer security, particularly areas around secure protocols, cryptography, privacy, and anonymity. I have to admit that I’m more inspired by software engineers who become interested in computer security, rather than the other way around.

  • PowerSyringe – PowerShell-based Code/DLL Injection Utility – exploit-monday.com
    So I decided to expand upon my previous post and create a slightly more full-featured Powershell-based code/DLL injection utility. Behold, PowerSyringe. As the name implies, I based some of the code on the original Syringe toolkit.
  • PMCMA tool resources and links – pmcma.org
    Pmcma is a tool aimed at determining if a given software bug is an exploitable vulnerability by automatically writting an exploit for it. Like every powerful tool made by human beings, it is double edged : it can be used for good or evil.

  • Hacking PLC From The Internet Part1.1 (Edited) – dsecrg.blogspot.com
    So many of you guys probably know that SCADA systems can be found in the internet. It is not so hard. You just need to know google or shodanhq search strings. But what is more important is that PLC devices that must be much more secured from the outside than SCADA are also available from the internet!
  • Oracle Web Hacking Part II – ethicalhacker.net
    In Part 2 of 3 of this ongoing series of columns, I’ll dive into attacking the Oracle Application Server Portal (OracleAS Portal).  I’ll focus on Oracle 9i and 10g up to Release 2.  With 11g (10.3.x) Oracle moved to Weblogic, and it’s completely different and therefore out of the scope of this series.  But there are plenty of shops out there still using 9i and 10g, which gives us plenty of opportunity for breaking stuff.  So, let’s get to it.
  • SCADA Hacks Published On Pastebin – isc.sans.edu
    pastebin.com has become a simple platform to publish evidence of various attacks. Lenny a few months back already noted that it may be useful for organizations to occasionally search pastebin for data leakage. Recently, an individual using the alias of pr0f published evidence of attacking the South Houston water system.
  • Quick Tip: Pastebin Monitoring & Recon – isc.sans.edu
    One reader wrote in to say that you could use Google Alerts to monitor Pastebin for names and keywords of interest to you, but you may prefer a Google Custom Search instead. Configure it to monitor Pastebin and other similar sites; set names and keywords that are relevant for your needs.
