Welcome to the Tenable Network Security Podcast - Episode 63
Hosts: Paul Asadoorian, Product Evangelist & Carlos Perez, Lead Vulnerability Research Engineer
- Several new blog posts have been published this week, including:
- Check out our video channel on YouTube that contains the latest Nessus and SecurityCenter 4 tutorials, including the new 3D Tool Beta.
- We're hiring! - Visit the Tenable web site for more information about open positions.
- You can subscribe to the Tenable Network Security Podcast on iTunes!
- Tenable Tweets - You can find us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tenablesecurity where we make various announcements, provide Nessus plugin statistics and more!
- Cisco IOS Hacking Information - Everything from protocol attacks, remote exploitation and forensics is covered in this handy little page from the folks over at "Recurity" (home of "FX", famed printer and router hacker). I believe people have lost sight of Cisco IOS security. Cisco devices need to be locked down and secured even more than most of your computers and workstations, yet security is almost an afterthought after availability, scalability, and cost.
- Little Black Box - Kind of a little black book, but for SSL! Several applications and devices come with privately generated SSL keys. This tool stores all the ones they could find and allows you to use them for MiTM and decrypting traffic. Brilliant!
- Using Powershell To Bypass Windows Protections - Each month Microsoft says that users with less privileges are less susceptible to attacks because they are not running as Administrator. Each week I read about a new privilege escalation attack, such as this one that uses Windows Powershell to overcome restrictions placed on the "sa" account associated with MSSQL.
- Watch Out For Exim - Nice write up from Ron Bowes on the Exim vulnerability. We've released a Nessus plugin to check for it.
- HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA hardcoded user - This is just so fitting to be my last story of the year for the podcast. It shows just how bad the fail is when it comes to embedded devices.
