NYU Accidentally Exposed Military Code-breaking Computer Project to Entire Internet. In early December 2016, Adam was doing what he’s always doing, somewhere between hobby and profession: looking for things that are on the internet that shouldn’t be.
That week, he came across a server inside New York University’s famed Institute for Mathematics and Advanced Supercomputing, headed by the brilliant Chudnovsky brothers, David and Gregory. The server appeared to be an internet-connected backup drive. Code.tutsplus. 9 Tips for Writing Secure Applications in ASP.NET - User Experience Guidance - Infragistics.com Blog. Security is one of the most important aspects of any application – and when we talk about security, particularly in ASP.NET applications, it is not limited to development.
The software could give nearly anyone with sufficient technical knowledge the ability to wreak havoc on millions of Microsoft users. The leak includes a litany of typically codenamed software “implants” with names like ODDJOB, ZIPPYBEER, and ESTEEMAUDIT, capable of breaking into — and in some cases seizing control of — computers running version of the Windows operating system earlier than the most recent Windows 10. The vulnerable Windows versions ran more than 65 percent of desktop computers surfing the web last month, according to estimates from the tracking firm Net Market Share. via Matthew Hickey. Say Cheese: a snapshot of the massive DDoS attacks coming from IoT cameras. Over the last few weeks we've seen DDoS attacks hitting our systems that show that attackers have switched to new, large methods of bringing down web applications.
AES Encryption Flaw Exposes ASP.NET Sites. News UPDATED: Security Hack Exposes Forms Authentication in ASP.NET For more on this story, please see: Microsoft To Release Out-of-Band Patch for ASP.NET Security Flaw Two security researchers, Thai Duong and Juliano Rizzo, have discovered a bug in the default encryption mechanism used to protect the cookies normally used to implement Forms Authentication in ASP.NET.
Using their tool (the Padding Oracle Exploit Tool or POET), they can repeatedly modify an ASP.NET Forms Authentication cookie (normally encrypted using AES) and, by examining the errors returned, determine the Machine Key used to encrypt the cookie. The process is claimed to be 100 percent reliable and takes between 30 and 50 minutes for any site. Once the Machine Key is determined, attackers can create bogus forms authentication cookies.

Cryptology. BUG With FormsAuthentication - ASP.NET Security. Hernan de Lahitte's blog - Forms authentication and role-based security (II) In this second part about Forms authentication and role based security I will show you how you can overcome the “limitations” (more than 50 roles per user) showed on my first post about this topic.
The strategy presented on that first post was related to the roles state persistence inside the FormsAuthentication cookie. If you don’t want to save the roles info inside a cookie because you might have users with cookies disabled usage or perhaps some of your users have a huge amount of roles or whatever reason you may have, you may store this info on the server side using for example the System.Web.Caching.Cache object. This cache has an excellent performance and scalability management and is thread safe as well. Mobile Ad Networks as DDoS Vectors: A Case Study. CloudFlare servers are constantly being targeted by DDoS'es.
