Automate the Boring Stuff with Python Checking and replying to email is a huge time sink. Of course, you can’t just write a program to handle all your email for you, since each message requires its own response. But you can still automate plenty of email-related tasks once you know how to write programs that can send and receive email. For example, maybe you have a spreadsheet full of customer records and want to send each customer a different form letter depending on their age and location details.

airodump-ng [Aircrack-ng] Description Airodump-ng is used for packet capturing of raw 802.11 frames and is particularly suitable for collecting WEP IVs (Initialization Vector) for the intent of using them with aircrack-ng. If you have a GPS receiver connected to the computer, airodump-ng is capable of logging the coordinates of the found access points. Additionally, airodump-ng writes out several files containing the details of all access points and clients seen. Usage Before running airodump-ng, you may start the airmon-ng script to list the detected wireless interfaces.

Python for Fun This collection is a presentation of several small Python programs. They are aimed at intermediate programmers; people who have studied Python and are fairly comfortable with basic recursion and object oriented techniques. Each program is very short, never more than a couple of pages and accompanied with a write-up. I have found Python to be an excellent language to express algorithms clearly. Some of the ideas here originated in other programs in other languages.

NSA Said to Exploit Heartbleed Bug for Intelligence for Years The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said. The NSA’s decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts. Heartbleed appears to be one of the biggest glitches in the Internet’s history, a flaw in the basic security of as many as two-thirds of the world’s websites. Its discovery and the creation of a fix by researchers five days ago prompted consumers to change their passwords, the Canadian government to suspend electronic tax filing and computer companies including Cisco Systems Inc. to Juniper Networks Inc. to provide patches for their systems.

Unknown Vulnerability Management Introduction | Whitepapers | Webcasts In all forms of cyber attacks, the access into the system or device is enabled by a vulnerability in the code. Thus, the number one security priority should be finding and fixing vulnerabilities in both in-house and third-party developed code. Vulnerability management is often understood as scanning for known vulnerabilities, but finding the unknown vulnerabilities is equally important.
