An older post describing Wifiphisher can be found here. Recently an update was made to the open source tool that helps you execute speedy and automated phishing attacks against wireless networks. Most notably, this new release includes the Lure10 attack – a novel way for associating automatically with any device that is within range running the latest Windows.
There are a lot of WordPress security tools out there such as the WPScan, vulnerability scanner. Now, there is an addition – WPForce, which I consider is a more offensive tool that performs brute force attempts against a targeted WordPress installation.
All of us know that a typical penetration testing engagement begins with reconnaissance (run nmap, etc.), testing for services & their default passwords then moving onto launching common exploits (Metasploit, etc.), getting access and then lateral movement. This is okay on small networks, but tends to be slow on large networks. Fortunately, we have APT2 to help us!
While there are multiple platform dependent libraries such as pefile, pyelftools, pwntools in Python and objdump and similar tools. Now, there is LIEF, an open source cross platform library to parse, modify and abstract ELF, PE and MachO file formats.
This year at RSA, I remember meeting with a vendor who dealt with database security by encrypting the database. I forget the name, but found a open source project – Acra, which I think is a promising product if designed & developed right.
Since I blogged a bit about docker security tools, I thought of continuing the trend and introduce Pwnbox, is an open source docker container that has tools to aid you in reverse engineering and exploitation. It allows you to package up an container with all of the tools of trade you need in a capture-the-flag situation, or elsewhere too!
I had covered Ostinato in our earlier blog, before it got blown away and was reminded of it when I was working on the Apache Struts S2-046 vulnerability. I had a .pcap file which I had to replay and this is where Ostinato came into picture. A bit off track, if you want to protect yourself from S2-045 & S2-046, and your application is on Apache, simply add the following to your .htaccess file:
<IfModule mod_headers.c> RequestHeader unset Content-Type RequestHeader unset Content-Disposition RequestHeader unset Content-length </IfModule>
