Top 10 Web hacking techniques of 2010 revealed Network World - A Web hack that can endanger online banking transactions is ranked the No. 1 new Web hacking technique for 2010 in a top 10 list selected by a panel of experts and open voting. Called the Padding Oracle Crypto Attack, the hack takes advantage of how Microsoft's Web framework ASP.NET protects AES encryption cookies. FROM THE SECURITY WORLD: Quirky moments at Black Hat DC 2011 If encryption data in the cookie has been changed, the way ASP.NET handles it results in the application leaking some information about how to decrypt the traffic. With enough repeated changes and leaked information, the hacker can deduce which possible bytes can be eliminated from the encryption key. That reduces the number of unknown bytes to a small enough number to be guessed.

How the NSA's Firmware Hacking Works and Why It's So Unsettling One of the most shocking parts of the recently discovered spying network Equation Group is its mysterious module designed to reprogram or reflash a computer hard drive’s firmware with malicious code. The Kaspersky researchers who uncovered this said its ability to subvert hard drive firmware—the guts of any computer—“surpasses anything else” they had ever seen. The hacking tool, believed to be a product of the NSA, is significant because subverting the firmware gives the attackers God-like control of the system in a way that is stealthy and persistent even through software updates. The module, named “nls_933w.dll”, is the first of its kind found in the wild and is used with both the EquationDrug and GrayFish spy platforms Kaspersky uncovered. It also has another capability: to create invisible storage space on the hard drive to hide data stolen from the system so the attackers can retrieve it later. Here’s what we know about the firmware-flashing module.
Essential Wireless Hacking Tools By Daniel V. Hoffman, CISSP, CWNA, CEH Anyone interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of wireless security and exploiting vulnerabilities will need a good set of base tools with which to work. Fortunately, there are an abundance of free tools available on the Internet. This list is not meant to be comprehensive in nature but rather to provide some general guidance on recommended tools to build your toolkit.
Exploiting Unexploitable XSS XSS that are protected by CSRF protection or where other mitigating factors are present are usually considered to be unexploitable or of limited exploitability. This post details real world examples of exploiting “unexploitable” XSS in Google and Twitter. While the XSS detailed in this post are site specific the methods that were used to exploit them could be applied to other websites with similar implementations. Alex’s (kuza55) Exploiting CSRF Protected XSS served as inspiration for this post. Google Google has services deployed across many different domains and subdomains and as a result requires a way to seamlessly authenticate members who are logged in to their Google Account.
s Complete Guide to Windows 7 @cjmazur: How short-sighted and prejudice can an Apple fanboi get!? "Looking at Microsoft's history with operating system launches, let's look at the possible outcome." I mean I know it's not uncommon for you guys to crotch-nurse from 'ol Stevie, but is it possible for you to come up with an original thought of your own without regurgitating the BS that Apple commercials feed you? Ok, ok assuming you're not just spewing Apple's new propaganda commercial to the threads, do you honestly not realize how prejudice & bigoted you sound?
Phone hacking Phone hacking is the practice of intercepting telephone calls or voicemail messages, often by accessing the voicemail messages of a mobile phone without the consent of the phone's owner. The term came to prominence during the News International phone hacking scandal, in which it was alleged (and in some cases proved in court) that the British tabloid newspaper the News of the World had been involved in the interception of voicemail messages of the British Royal Family, other public figures, and the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. Risks Although any mobile phone user may be targeted, "for those who are famous, rich or powerful or whose prize is important enough (for whatever reason) to devote time and resources to make a concerted attack, there are real risks to face.
MD5 considered harmful today The bytes 0 - 473 in the real certificate (the fields up to the modulus, and the first 5 bytes of the modulus field which are a predictable header) are pretty much fixed by CA requirements. Those 474 bytes form the "chosen prefix" on the real certificate's side. For this certificate we chose to have a 2048 bit RSA key. The main reason for this size is the fact that we have to hide the collision block in there. Our collision construction method enables us to make collision blocks of 1632 bits, so 2048 seems a reasonable choice. Moreover 2048 bit RSA moduli are quite common, so no suspicion is raised.

The Interconnected World of Growth Hackers When startups are ready to scale, one challenge that often crops up is finding the right person to lead the growth charge. Stage right: the growth hacker. A good growth hacker has a burning desire to connect a target market with a must-have solution, and everything they do is measured by their potential impact on scalable growth. Below is a chart of modern-day growth hackers and the companies they’ve helped to build. We show how many of these growth hackers are interconnected, and how there are natural groupings of growth hackers around certain company genres (Microsoft and Linkedin, for instance).
