Untitled. Regularly checking your macOS systems for properly configured systems, apps, and services with Lynis helps administrators harden devices by minimizing their attack surface.


The process of hardening your system takes on many forms as the whole is made up of several individual components that, when combined, formulate a profile for minimizing the attack surface of your devices. Like a defense in depth strategy, which forms the crux of cybersecurity best practices, hardening of computer systems is but one cog in the wheel of client security, where that in turn is a portion of the overall security posture for the environment.

Dump Windows password hashes efficiently - Part 1. Windows Security Account Manager Slightly modified definition from Wikipedia: The Security Accounts Manager (SAM) is a registry file in Windows NT and later versions until the most recent Windows 7.

Dump Windows password hashes efficiently - Part 1

It stores users' passwords in a hashed format (in LM hash and NTLM hash). Since a hash function is one-way, this provides some measure of security for the storage of the passwords. Generally, dumping operating system users' password hashes is a common action following a compromise of a machine: getting access to the password hashes might open the doors to a variety of attacks including, but not limited to, authenticate with the hash over SMB to other systems where passwords are reused, password policy analysis and pattern recognition, password cracking, etc. Depending on the type of access that you have got to the target, you can retrieve the password hashes from SAM in different ways. Physical access These tools are generally included in many GNU/Linux live distributions.

Encyclopaedia Of Windows Privilege Escalation - Brett Moore. Windows Privilege Escalation Fundamentals. Forgot administrator password? The Sticky Keys trick. Windows-privesc-check. Unix-privesc-check. Unix-privesc-checker is a script that runs on Unix systems (tested on Solaris 9, HPUX 11, Various Linuxes, FreeBSD 6.2).


It tries to find misconfigurations that could allow local unprivilged users to escalate privileges to other users or to access local apps (e.g. databases). Securityweekly. Metasploit has A LOT of exploits, but from time to time you will very likely need to use exploits that are not part of the framework.


Whether it is an exploit from that spawns a shell or a netcat listener you can still use the framework to control the host. As long as you have a shell bound to a TCP port you can use metasploit to interact with that victim. What’s more, you can upgrade that shell to a meterpreter session so you can benefit from the full power of the framework. First, to connect to a shell bound to TCP port you will need to use the payload SHELL_BIND_TCP. Exploiting Format String Vulnerabilities for Fun and Profit. Exploit code development.

(see The vulnerability report included a proof of concept exploit (which, by the way, failed to work on my MS Virtual PC based XP SP3 En). Another exploit was released just a little bit later. Nice work. You can copy the PoC exploit code, run it, see that it doesn’t work (or if you are lucky, conclude that it works), or… you can try to understand the process of building the exploit so you can correct broken exploits, or just build your own exploits from scratch.

I've tried to explain things in a little more depth than many tutorials out there, so hopefully you will understand what is actually happening rather than just firing off tools at targets and hoping for results.

Legal Issues in Penetration Testing. By Mark Rasch When I was a kid growing up in the Bronx, a high school buddy got a job as a “security tester” at the Alexander’s department store on Fordham Road.

Legal Issues in Penetration Testing

His job was to shoplift. This was to see whether the security personnel were doing their job, or were asleep at the switch. On his first day at work, he successfully shoplifted for several hours, until at the end of the day, he was caught. When detained, he showed the security guards his (temporary paper) ID card, and he was promptly beaten up. The story illustrates some of the dangers associated with penetration testing. Legal Authority. Legal Issues. When used properly, Nmap helps protect your network from invaders.

Legal Issues

But when used improperly, Nmap can (in rare cases) get you sued, fired, expelled, jailed, or banned by your ISP. Reduce your risk by reading this legal guide before launching Nmap. Is Unauthorized Port Scanning a Crime? The legal ramifications of scanning networks with Nmap are complex and so controversial that third-party organizations have even printed T-shirts and bumper stickers promulgating opinions on the matter, as shown in Figure 1.3.

The topic also draws many passionate but often unproductive debates and flame wars. Figure 1.3. Frequently Asked Questions ~ VulnHub.

My iptables based firewall allows only port TCP 80 and 443. I also need tcp port # 22, but I do not have static IP at my home. How do I open and close TCP port #22 on demand under Debian or Ubuntu Linux based server systems? How do I install a port-knock server called knockd and configure it with iptables to open tcp port #22 or any other ports? Debian or Ubuntu Linux comes with knockd. It is a port-knock server. When the server detects a specific sequence of port-hits, it runs a command defined in its configuration file. Knockd installation Open a terminal or login to the remote server using the ssh client.

Hardware hacking

Hacking Embedded Devices: UART Consoles - MWR Labs. The ‘Hardware Hacking’ scene has exploded recently, thanks largely to the widespread adoption of devices such as the Arduino and Raspberry PI by the hacking community. Applying hardware hacking techniques during product assessments can often give unrivaled levels of access to hidden or undocumented functionality particularly when reviewing embedded devices such as routers, switches and access points.
