Making it only hidden is not the best way to hide an important file since it can be accessed by using powerful 3rd party search tools. Why not hide the file inside a calculator? Safe Calculator does exactly that. It is a portable tool that is both a calculator and a secret safe. You can save only one file inside it, if you have multiple files, you can zip them and then save it inside the calculator. Update: This post is just for fun, it won’t really hide large files. Note: The default PIN is 123, but you can change it later by entering a new PIN. You do not need to install the tool, just extract the content in the zip file and run it. Running Snort Under Windows.

Product Watch: New Tool Automatically Examines Suspicious Code In Memory. Website Security Check - Unmask Parasites. Security Research by Dan Rosenberg. Since the beginning of the media frenzy over CarrierIQ, I have repeatedly stated that based on my knowledge of the software, claims that keystrokes, SMS bodies, email bodies, and other data of this nature are being collected are erroneous.
I have also stated that to satisfy users, it’s important that there be increased visibility into what data is actually being collected on these devices. This post represents my findings on how CarrierIQ works, and what data it is capable of collecting. There has been a lot of misinformation about which parties are responsible for which aspects of data collection. At a high level, CarrierIQ is a piece of software installed on phones that accepts pieces of information known as metrics. On receiving a submitted metric, CIQ evaluates whether that metric is “interesting” based on the current profile installed on the device.
To get a complete picture of this, suppose a carrier decides it wants to know about dropped calls.

Psad - Intrusion Detection with iptables, iptables Log Analysis, iptables Policy Analysis. Psad: Intrusion Detection and Log Analysis with iptables psad is a collection of three lightweight system daemons (two main daemons and one helper daemon) that run on Linux machines and analyze iptables log messages to detect port scans and other suspicious traffic.
A typical deployment is to run psad on the iptables firewall where it has the fastest access to log data. psad incorporates many signatures from the Snort intrusion detection system to detect probes for various backdoor programs (e.g. EvilFTP, GirlFriend, SubSeven), DDoS tools (mstream, shaft), and advanced port scans (FIN, NULL, XMAS) which are easily leveraged against a machine via nmap. When combined with fwsnort and the Netfilter string match extension, psad is capable of detecting many attacks described in the Snort rule set that involve application layer data.
