Insecure.Org - Nmap Free Security Scanner, Tools & Hacking resources Noticias de Seguridad Informática - Segu-Info La gente está en vilo debido a Heartbleed, un error de programación que inadvertidamente arrasó con la seguridad de muchos servicios de Internet. La revelación de esta semana sorprendió al mundo. Y los nuevos informes que llegan sobre Heartbleed solo parecen inspirar más preocupaciones, no menos. ¿Quiere unirse conmigo en una pequeña sesión de descrédito? Mito 1: Heartbleed es un virus Esta falla de OpenSSLno es un virus. Cuando funciona como debería, OpenSSL ayuda a asegurar que las comunicaciones por red estén protegidas de ser espiadas. Mito 2: La falla solo afecta a sitios web Las potenciales brechas de seguridad para servidores y ruteadores son cuestiones masivas, ya que permiten la fuga de grandes volúmenes de información. "Por lo general en el cliente, la memoria se asigna sólo al proceso que se está ejecutando . La idea de acceso a cuentas no autorizadas y ajustes de sistema puede ser especialmente desconcertante para los usuarios domésticos inteligentes. Totalmente falso.

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. In this post i’m going to mention 50 different tools under 9 categories that your ‘Hack Lab’ must have. Most of the tools mentioned in this post are pre-included in Kali Linux which you can install to have them at once. Intrusion Detection Systems :- These are the tools you must have if you’re building a hack lab for penetration testing or for any security arrangement. SnortNetCop Encryption Tools :- While the above tools do identify any suspicious activity but they can’t protect your data, you need encryption tools for that.

Mozilla Firefox Freedom of speech should not be sacrificed in the recording industry's war to restrict the public from making copies of digital music. EFF has asked a federal court to declare that scientists from Princeton and Rice University can publish their research on digital music security weaknesses at the USENIX Conference in August 2001. When a team led by Princeton Professor Edward Felten accepted a public challenge by the Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI) to break new security systems, they did not give up their First Amendment right to teach others what they learned. Yet they have been threatened by SDMI and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to keep silent or face litigation under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Professor Felten has a career teaching people about security, yet the recording industry has censored him for finding weaknesses in their security. Frequently Asked Questions About Felten v. Supplemental Declaration of Ed Felten - Plaintiff Prof.

Forensic Science 2.0 – 100 Top Websites to Bookmark » Forensic Science Degree Forensic science tends to be overdramatized in movies and television, most notably on CSI. While the process of gathering and analyzing evidence is rarely as quick and clear-cut as it seems on TV, forensic science careers can easily be just as thrilling and intellectually stimulating. Forensic scientists may pursue a wide variety of specialties, from forensic anthropology to fingerprint analysis to questioned-document examination and even digital investigation of evidence. Experience with the hard sciences such as chemistry and molecular biology can prove vital to forensic scientists, especially those who prefer to work in a lab rather than as a crime scene technician. Forensic Science Organizations There are professional organizations and associations for forensic scientists of nearly every specialty. Forensic Specialties Accreditation Board, Inc. works to be a tool that the forensic community can use to monitor and assess the organizations that certify forensic scientists.

Security War Games Information security keeps evolving, but our educational methods are not evolving rapidly enough to win the cold cyberwar Let's face it: Protecting your technical environment from internal and external attacks isn't much different than the age-old wars fought since mankind picked up a rock. The goal is to keep people in and/or keep people out. Just much less blood. How are you preparing your Blue Team from getting decimated on the virtual battlefield? When it comes to information security, I've always found the "traditional" classroom-based training difficult to retain and recall at a moment's notice unless it was a hands-on exercise. Update: A reader caught my bad math. Oh, I forgot to mention that we did this without the instructor's knowledge. I barely recall other lessons the instructor presented, but I will never forget how we educated each other through unsanctioned war games. Our brains haven't evolved enough during the past 16 years to change how it stores data, but our wisdom has.

(In)Security of the WEP algorithm This is some information about our analysis of the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm, which is part of the 802.11 standard. This work was performed jointly by Nikita Borisov, Ian Goldberg, and David Wagner. If you have any questions, please contact us at wep@isaac.cs.berkeley.edu. Executive Summary We have discovered a number of flaws in the WEP algorithm, which seriously undermine the security claims of the system. Passive attacks to decrypt traffic based on statistical analysis. Our analysis suggests that all of these attacks are practical to mount using only inexpensive off-the-shelf equipment. Note that our attacks apply to both 40-bit and the so-called 128-bit versions of WEP equally well. WEP setup The 802.11 standard describes the communication that occurs in wireless local area networks (LANs). WEP relies on a secret key that is shared between a mobile station (eg. a laptop with a wireless ethernet card) and an access point (ie. a base station). Problems Attacks Monitoring

Eleven Paths Blog Equation Group: Meet the NSA 'gods of cyber espionage' Over the last couple of years we have been hearing about ever more sophisticated pieces of malware. From Stuxnet and Flame to Gauss and most recently Regin, all have shown increasing levels of technical prowess and all have been linked in some way with the US government. These were thought to be the pinnacle of a huge investment in offensive cyber capabilities by the world's wealthiest country. That was, until we learned about Equation. Described by Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based security company which uncovered it, as "an almost omnipotent cyberespionage organisation", the group has been called the "God of cyberespionage" and may have been operating undetected for almost two decades. While Kaspersky's report reveals much about the group, it barely touches the surface of the capabilities of what is likely the most highly-prized jewel in the NSA's cyberespionage crown. What is the Equation group? Finally, an advanced keylogger known as Grok is referenced in the Equation team's source code.
