Kali Linux really needs no introduction today. It is the de-facto open source, Debian-based operating system for penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, digital forensics and wireless assessments. It is one of those operating systems that I see being actively developed and has a huge and helpful community. This post talks about the improvements and new tool additions in the latest open source Kali Linux 2017.1 Rolling release.
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>
Back to Ostinato:
