Passive Vulnerability Scanning Segment with Ron Gula

Ron joins us to discuss some new features added to the Passive Vulnerability Scanner, including:

  • VxWorks and QNX passive vulnerability detection
  • New passive patent
  • New PVS licensing options for network address spaces


Stories

  • SQL Injection Cheat Sheet - A great guide to different SQL injection attacks, including a nice write-up of how the SQL syntax should work, followed by attack examples. It also includes information on which databases support the various attacks. I thought this was going to be "just another cheat sheet", boy was I wrong!
  • rsmangler - Password Dictionary Customization - This is a great tool for making your password dictionaries more effective. I've learned over the years that the more time you spend customizing password lists, the greater you increase your chances for success. Combine this with CeWL and the pw-inspector utility that comes with Hydra, and you can go to great "lengths" in customizing your password lists.
  • Wi-Fi Aerial Surveillance Platform, WASP drone - Taking Wifi detection and attacks to a new level is the WASP, or Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform, complete with Wifi, multi-user interfaces, and complete with Backtrack Live CD for all your hacking needs. This just in: new wireless intrusion prevention systems now come with anti-aircraft weapons.
  • Study Finds That Anti-Virus Software Doesn't Prevent Exploits - This is an interesting article to debate. One could question "should exploits be stopping the exploit, the payload, or both?".
  • Apple Files Patent For Human Authentication - Really neat patent filed by Apple that will attempt to authenticate a user by their face, voice, and even heartbeat. While this is unique, like anything else it will most likely be hacked. I don't think Apple is going for security, but in true Apple fashion, usability.
  • Speaking of directory traversals - An entire tool dedicated to them! It's important to point out not only to look for them, but consider both HTTP and FTP protocols.
