Many services rely on user data to provide relevant content and enhance your online experience. But tracking can happen without the user’s knowledge. That’s not okay for some. Ghostery. Panopticlick. Cracking Siri. March 12, 2014 It is getting hard to publish an app where forms are not mandatory. Users are exposed to input data through forms in order to access the service (login, registering), achieve a task (searching, checking out) or complete secondary actions (for instance getting in touch with the editor). Constraints due to the mobile environment (screen sizes and the digital keyboard among many others) make forms a major traffic leak. To the question “What makes you uninstall an app?”

Password Haystacks: How Well Hidden is Your Needle? ... and how well hidden is YOUR needle?
Every password you use can be thought of as a needle hiding in a haystack. After all searches of common passwords and dictionaries have failed, an attacker must resort to a “brute force” search – ultimately trying every possible combination of letters, numbers and then symbols until the combination you chose, is discovered. If every possible password is tried, sooner or later yours will be found. The question is: Will that be too soon . . . or enough later? This interactive brute force search space calculator allows you to experiment with password length and composition to develop an accurate and quantified sense for the safety of using passwords that can only be found through exhaustive search.

We’ve written a series of how-to guides explaining how we collected the data. Most of the techniques are within the ability of the moderately experienced programmer. The most difficult-to-scrape site was actually a previous Adobe Flash incarnation of Eli Lilly’s disclosure site. Lilly has since released their data in PDF format. These recipes may be most helpful to journalists who are trying to learn programming and already know the basics.
If you are a complete novice and have no short-term plan to learn how to code, it may still be worth your time to find out about what it takes to gather data by scraping web sites -- so you know what you’re asking for if you end up hiring someone to do the technical work for you. The tools With the exception of Adobe Acrobat Pro, all of the tools we discuss in these guides are free and open-source. Exploits Database by Offensive Security. The Metasploit Project. CUPP – Common User Passwords Profiler – Automated Password Profiling Tool. A while back we had Wyd – Automated Password Profiling Tool but the guys at remote-exploit seem to have superseded this with CUPP.
There are other similar options too – The Associative Word List Generator (AWLG) and also RSMangler – Keyword Based Wordlist Generator For Bruteforcing. People spend a lot of time preparing for effective dictionary attack. Common User Passwords Profiler (CUPP) is made to simplify this attack method that is often used as last resort in penetration testing and forensic crime investigations. A weak password might be very short or only use alphanumeric characters, making decryption simple.
A weak password can also be one that is easily guessed by someone profiling the user, such as a birthday, nickname, address, name of a pet or relative, or a common word such as God, love, money or password. Going through different combinations and algorithms, CUPP can predict specific target passwords by exploiting human vulnerabilities. You can download CUPP v3.1 here: Hacking.
