Internet scan finds thousands of device flaws, system weaknesses

The Internet has gone from this nebulous scary thing that's hard to map to … something that you can gain lot of interesting insight by analyzing information like this. HD Moore, Metasploit creator, CSO, Rapid7 It's a project that HD Moore calls his hobby. The Internet-wide survey looked for open TCP ports, SNMP system descriptions, MDNS responders, UPNP endpoints and NetBIOS name queries.

At the DerbyCon security conference here, Moore told a packed room of hundreds of attendees that the project has resulted in a treasure-trove of data that is continually being analyzed. "The Internet has gone from this nebulous scary thing that's hard to map to … something that you can gain lot of interesting insight by analyzing information like this," Moore said.

Drug Interactions

The Drug Interaction Checker explains the mechanism of each drug interaction, the level of significance of the interaction (major, moderate or minor), and in certain cases, can provide the recommended course of action to manage the interaction. The Drug Interaction Checker will also display any interactions between your chosen drug(s) and food. The Rise of Nimble Medicine.

Downfall: Photos Of MegaUpload Founder’s Valuable Cars Getting Seized

Yesterday, the United States Department of Justice seized and shut down the site and commenced criminal cases against its owners and others, sparking retaliatory actions from hacker collective Anonymous. Yesterday, following the DoJ indictment, the Organised and Financial Crime Agency of New Zealand arrested MegaUpload founder Kim Schmitz (aka Kim Dotcom), CMO Finn Batato, co-founder and CTO Mathias Ortmann and others. Their subsequent bail request was denied in New Zealand court as it was opposed by US authorities on the case. GigaOm has an excellent run-down of the indictment details if you’d like to learn more. In the meantime, we got pinged by Elliott Kember, who was in New Zealand when the crackdown was in full effect. For a list of items seized, check out CNET’s article on the matter.

Is it really Zeus vs. Anonymous?

The word from the alleged victim, Anonymous, is a ferocious denial that it ever happened. So, were Anonymous supporters really duped into installing the Zeus botnet that steals their confidential information, including email login information, banking user names and passwords? Yes, according to Symantec, which reported late last month that an unknown hacker modified a link to "Slowloris," a popular Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack tool, which then directed users to a Zeus bot Trojan instead. The company said the hack against Anonymous took place Jan. 20, the day Megaupload co-founder Kim Dotcom and three others were arrested, and the day after Anonymous attacked websites operated by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

Let's assume you finished the analysis of Blacole's obfuscated Javascript (see my earlier diary today), and you are still left with a code block like this and you wonder what it does.

Blacole's shell code

The first step in Shell Code analysis is to "clean it up", in the case at hand here, we have to remove those spurious "script" tags because they would trip us up in any of the following steps. Once we're left with only the actual unicode (%uxxyy...) , we can turn this into printable characters: .movo.
