HakShop — USB Rubber Ducky Since 2010 the USB Rubber Ducky has been a favorite amongst hackers, penetration testers and IT professionals. With origins as a humble IT automation proof-of-concept using an embedded dev-board, it has grown into a full fledged commercial Keystroke Injection Attack Platform. The USB Rubber Ducky captured the imagination of hackers with its simple scripting language, formidable hardware, and covert design. Quack like a Keyboard! Nearly every computer including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones take input from Humans via Keyboards. Top 50 Hacking Tools That You Must Have Whether you are a Penetration tester, a hacker or an aspiring newbie trying to learn Cyber Security, you must have a nice catalogue of tools to make your life easier. While these tools do make working simpler but cannot compensate for the vast amount of knowledge required in this field.

How To Crack A Wi-Fi Network’s WPA Password With Reaver Your Wi-Fi network is your convenient wireless gateway to the internet, and since you’re not keen on sharing your connection with any old hooligan who happens to be walking past your home, you secure your network with a password, right? Knowing, as you might, how easy it is to crack a WEP password, you probably secure your network using the more bulletproof WPA security protocol. Here’s the bad news: A new, free, open-source tool called Reaver exploits a security hole in wireless routers and can crack most routers’ current passwords with relative ease.

Whitepixel breaks 28.6 billion password/sec - Zorinaq I am glad to announce, firstly, the release of whitepixel, an open source GPU-accelerated password hash auditing software for AMD/ATI graphics cards that qualifies as the world's fastest single-hash MD5 brute forcer; and secondly, that a Linux computer built with four dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 5970 graphics cards for the purpose of running whitepixel is the first demonstration of eight AMD GPUs concurrently running this type of cryptographic workload on a single system. This software and hardware combination achieves a rate of 28.6 billion MD5 password hashes tested per second, consumes 1230 Watt at full load, and costs 2700 USD as of December 2010. The capital and operating costs of such a system are only a small fraction of running the same workload on Amazon EC2 GPU instances, as I will detail in this post. [Update 2010-12-14: whitepixel v2 achieves a higher rate of 33.1 billion password/sec on 4xHD 5970.] Software: whitepixel Overview of whitepixel

Cloud Evolution: From Internal Efficiencies to Better Customer Experiences It's been fascinating to observe the evolution of cloud computing. Although I've only been focused on it for about three years, in those three years I've seen drastic changes in the way cloud is perceived -- and employed. Already we've moved from more narrow, opportunistic usages to broad platform-level thinking that benefits companies seeking to innovate their business models. In some cases it's entire industries that are impacted. In fact, a recent IBM study of business and IT leaders found that the number of organizations which will be using cloud for business model innovation will double within the next three years. In addition, even though cloud is often perceived as being an IT concern, respondents perceive cloud's value in its ability to help them with business capabilities such as increased collaboration (62%), new delivery channels/markets (56%), new/enhanced revenue streams (54%), competitive differentiation through specialization (51%), and so on.

Norse - Live Attack Intelligence Traditional signature- and policy-based network security systems are reactive and often rely on incomplete data that is not up to date. As the effectiveness of these solutions continues to decline, organizations are being exposed to increased risk of security breaches, data exfiltration, loss of reputation and revenue from today's advanced cyber threats. Norse DarkViking™ is a patented SaaS service that gathers "dark intelligence" from the parts of the Internet where bad actors operate and delivers an actionable risk score that enables organizations to drastically increase their overall security posture.
