Black Hat: Top 20 hack-attack tools Network World - Turn someone else’s phone into an audio/video bug. Check. Use Dropbox as a backdoor into corporate networks. Check. Suck information out of pacemakers. Check. The Black Hat conference convening in Las Vegas next week offers hacker tools for all of those plus more. [LOOKING BACK: 10 scariest hacks from Black Hat and Defcon QUIZ: Black Hat's most notorious incidents MUST SEE: 10 more of the world’s coolest data centers] Intended to provide good-guy researchers with tools to test the security of networks and devices, the free tools distributed at the conference can also be used by the bad guys to break into networks, steal data and thwart defenses designed to expose malware halt attacks. Over the course of two days white-hat hackers from consultancies, universities and vendors will present more than 100 briefings on vulnerabilities and exploits they have discovered, and in many cases releasing tools that would be useful to hackers.

Hardware-based security more effective against new threats With software security tools and network vulnerabilities constantly being targeted by hackers, securing hardware components will grow in importance given it is more secure and cybercriminals will find it difficult to alter the physical layer for their purposes. Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst of Moor Insight and Strategy, said hardware-based security is more secure than software tools such as antivirus since it cannot be altered. Hardware-based security refers to safeguarding the computer using components such as processors. An RSA spokesperson added the physical layer eliminates the possibility of malware, such as virtual rootkits, from infiltrating the operating system and penetrating the virtualization layer. In 2010, RSA, together with VMWare and Intel, introduced a proof-of-concept framework to integrate security into the entire hardware stack. One example is ARM's joint venture with Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient to set up Trustonic in December 2012.

Herramientas Seguridad Via @dragonjar Colombia #TICs Repositorio Exploit-DB En una auditoría de seguridad, uno de los objetivos puede ser vulnerar cuantas máquinas sean posibles. Para ello, nos valdremos de distintas herramientas escaneadores de red y puertos como nmap, visualizador y capturador de tráfico como Wireshark, alguna tool para hacer ataques MITM, como Cain y Abel y Evil FOCA etc.. Y para la parte de explotación, lo mas probable es que acabemos escogiendo Metasploit como Framework, pero no nos...

The Web's #1 Hacking Tools Directory - with tutorial videos! Hacking Tools Directory with Video Tutorials By Henry Dalziel | Information Security Blogger | Concise Courses We are big fans of blogging about Hacker Tools – for one major reason: if you are serious about working in cyber security you need to be able to use these tools like a boss. So! We have broken down our directory into the following hacking tools categories: (We feel that the below categories should encompass all the different fields within cyber security but as ever, if you feel that we have missed one out please let us know by dropping a comment below.) Let us know what you think about our Directory – we would love to hear your feedback. What we have tried to do to differentiate ourselves from the other Hacking Tools Sites out there, some of which are doing a great job, is that we have placed tutorial videos where possible to accompany the details about the tools. Drop a comment below to suggest a tool that we might be missing but you can also do that on the directory itself.

Top 15 Open Source. Free Security. Tools. 1. Nmap Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is a free and open source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. 2. Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer. 3. Metasploit Community Edition simplifies network discovery and vulnerability verification for specific exploits, increasing the effectiveness of vulnerability scanners. 4. Nikto is an Open Source (GPL) web server scanner which performs comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 6400 potentially dangerous files/CGIs, checks for outdated versions of over 1200 servers, and version specific problems on over 270 servers. 5. 6. ettercap 7. 8. 9. 10. w3af 11. hping 12. burpsuite 13. 14. sqlmap

Digital Intelligence and Investigation Tools | The CERT Division By providing operational support to high-profile intrusion, identity theft, and general computer crime investigations, DIID is able to see the current limitations of computer forensics and incident response in the field first hand. Combining applied research with the unique talents, operational experience, research capabilities, and the vast knowledge base of Carnegie Mellon University, we have developed resources, training, and tools to facilitate forensic examinations and assist authorized members of the law enforcement community. Restricted Access Tools Users can access the following tools after they register and are vetted. Live View LE allows forensic investigators to take a physical device or an image file of a disk or partition and automatically transform it into a virtual machine. CCFinder is a suite of utilities designed to facilitate the discovery, organization, and query of financial data and related personally identifiable information in large-scale investigations.

Top Network Security Tools Free Computer Tools for Disk Forensics. In the first article in this series we looked at free tools for data mirroring, and in the second installment we looked at tools available for registry forensics. Now we will move on to tools for disk forensics, which is the process of acquiring and analyzing the data stored on physical storage media. Disk forensics includes the recovery of hidden and deleted data and also file identification, the process of identifying who created a file or message. Tool: ADS Locator The ADS Locator can be used to find files that have alternate ADS streams attached. Tool: Disk Investigator Disk Investigator helps you to discover all that is hidden on your computer hard disk. It helps to view and search raw directories, files, clusters, and system sectors. Tool: Recuva Recuva is a free file recovery program that is capable of recovering lost or deleted files from local drives and external drives.

DOS Attacks and Free DOS Attacking Tools The denial of service (DOS) attack is one of the most powerful attacks used by hackers to harm a company or organization. Don’t confuse a DOS attack with DOS, the disc operating system developed by Microsoft. This attack is one of most dangerous cyber attacks. It causes service outages and the loss of millions, depending on the duration of attack. In past few years, the use of the attack has increased due to the availability of free tools. What Is a Denial of Service Attack? A DOS attack is an attempt to make a system or server unavailable for legitimate users and, finally, to take the service down. In general, there are two forms of the DOS attack. DDOS or Distributed Denial of Service Attack This is the complicated but powerful version of DOS attack in which many attacking systems are involved. To perform a DDOS attack, attackers use a zombie network, which is a group of infected computers on which the attacker has silently installed the DOS attacking tool. Free DOS Attacking Tools 1.
