Last week I had the pleasure of being asked to speak at Northumbria University, presenting to students of the Computer Forensics and Ethical Hacking for Computer Security programmes. As I graduated from Northumbria a few years ago it was interesting to come back to see some familiar faces and have a look at how the […]
The team from Offensive Security have just announced the opening of explo.it (re-directs to exploits.offensive-security.com, just more memorable). The site is designed as a successor to milw0rm. If you’ve ever browsed the milw0rm site the layout will be instantly familiar. I think this is great news for the infosec community, not only does the OffSec […]
I’ve recently had the pleasure of talking with Leon van der Eijk which resulted in me getting the opportunity to review an article he had been working on. The focus of the article is to identify and collect malware samples from running processes within volatile memory. Given my predilection for malware collection and analysis Leon […]
As I discussed in my last post about Dionaea I am really impressed with the improvements to logging capabilities over Nepenthes. I’ve now had a Dionaea system online for ~24hours, which while it isn’t enough data to draw any meaningful statistics, it has provided enough data to work on some new tools. I had been […]
As my previous post states, my Nepenthes system has been retired. In it’s place I’m building up a Dionaea system. The new features proposed by Dionaea should go a long way to improving on a couple of Nepenthes’ shortcomings, a good comparison of the two systems can be found on the Nepenthes blog (post October 27th). But what really caught my attention was the recent post on November 6th detailing the improved logging capabilites that are going to be built into Dionaea.
Following on from the move from Nepenthes to Dionaea, I’m decomissioning my Nepenthes server to start afresh with Dionaea. As such I thought I’d share the final statistics using InfoSanity’s statistic script for Nepenthes.
Sad news for the information security community today; it seems that Str0ke, the creator and maintainer of Milw0rm, has passed on.
The first episode of EuroTrash Security has been released this week. The stated goal is to create an infomation security podcast focused on happenings within Europe. Which provides one of the best taglines for a podcast I’ve heard: Security with funny accents.
The latest post (dated October 27th 2009) on the Nepenthes site indicates that development on Nepenthes is coming to a close, stating 7 reasons preventing newer features being implemented with Nepenthes. As a result I’m stopping development on my statistics scripts for parsing the Nepenthes’ log files. The good news is that work on Nepenthes’ spiritual successor is well underway, in the form of Dionaea.
