Malcom – Malware Communication Analyzer

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


Malcom is a Malware Communication Analyzer designed to analyze a system’s network communication using graphical representations of network traffic, and cross-reference them with known malware sources.

Malcom - Malware Communication Analyzer


This comes handy when analyzing how certain malware species try to communicate with the outside world.

Malcom Malware Communication Analyzer Features

Malcom can help you:

  • Detect central command and control (C&C) servers
  • Understand peer-to-peer networks
  • Observe DNS fast-flux infrastructures
  • Quickly determine if a network artifact is ‘known-bad’

The aim of Malcom is to make malware analysis and intel gathering faster by providing a human-readable version of network traffic originating from a given host or network. Convert network traffic information to actionable intelligence faster.

Installing Malcom Malware Communication Analyzer

Malcom is written in Python. Provided you have the necessary libraries, you should be able to run it on any platform. It’s recommended to use Python virtual environments (virtualenv) so as not to mess up your system libraries.

Install git, python and libevent libs, mongodb, redis, and other dependencies:

Environment for Malware Communication Analyzer

If you’re used to doing malware analysis, you probably already have tons of virtual machines running on a host OS. Just install Malcom on a new VM, and route your other VM’s connections through Malcom. Use enable_routing.sh to activate routing / NATing on the VM Malcom is running on. You’ll need to add an extra network card to the guest OS.

As long as it’s getting layer-3 network data, Malcom can be deployed anywhere. Although it’s not recommended to use it on high-availability networks (it wasn’t designed to be fast), you can have it running at the end of your switch’s mirror port or on your gateway.

WepAttack – WLAN 802.11 WEP Key Hacking Tool

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


WepAttack is a WLAN open source Linux WEP key hacking tool for breaking 802.11 WEP keys using a wordlist based dictionary attack.

WepAttack - WLAN 802.11 WEP Key Hacking Tool


This tool is based on an active dictionary attack that tests millions of words to find the right key. Only one packet is required to start an attack.

What is a WEP Key?

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Introduced as part of the original 802.11 standard ratified in 1997, its intention was to provide data confidentiality comparable to that of a traditional wired network.[1] WEP, recognizable by its key of 10 or 26 hexadecimal digits (40 or 104 bits), was at one time widely in use and was often the first security choice presented to users by router configuration tools.

It’s kinda old now, but you still find it used in situations where the equipment isn’t updated very often (old control systems, CCTV, old point of sale systems etc).

Using WepAttack WEP Key Hacking Tool

WepAttack needs a dumpfile for attacking networks. If the network data is captured by Kismet a dumpfile is generated automatically. This file is in format “Kismet-[date]-[no].dump“ and can be passed to WepAttack.

Usage:

Eraser – Windows Secure Erase Hard Drive Wiper

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


Eraser is a hard drive wiper for Windows which allows you to run a secure erase and completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns.

Eraser - Windows Secure Erase Hard Drive Wiper


Eraser is a Windows focused hard drive wiper and is currently supported under Windows XP (with Service Pack 3), Windows Server 2003 (with Service Pack 2), Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7,8 ,10 and Windows Server 2012.

Secure drive erasure methods are supported out of the box. Erases files, folders and their previously deleted counterparts. Works with an extremely customizable scheduler.

Why a Secure Erase Hard Drive Wiper is important?

A lot of people underestimate the importance of this, especially if you are throwing out an old hard disk or selling something on that contains a hard disk (an old laptop or desktop).

Your first thought may be that when you ‘delete’ the file, the data is gone. But that is not true, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table.

The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.

Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.

That is why it’s critical to erase your disks properly before finding them a new home (be that a bin, recycling plant or selling them on).

Depending on the value of the date, select one of the below secure wipe algorithms.

Secure Erase Hard Drive Wiper Methods


Pseudorandom data, 1 Pass, The fastest wiping scheme. Your data is overwritten with random data (if you use a CSPRNG the data is indistinguishable from random noise.)

British HMG IS5 (Baseline), 1 Pass, Your data is overwritten with zeroes.

Russian GOST P50739-95, 2 Passes, GOST P50739-95 wiping scheme calls for a single pass of zeroes followed by a single pass of random data

British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), 3 Passes, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced) is a three pass overwriting algorithm: first pass – with zeroes, second pass – with ones and the last pass with random data.

US Army AR380-19, 3 Passes, AR380-19 is data wiping scheme specified and published by the U.S. Army. AR380-19 is three pass overwriting algorithm: first pass – with random data, second with a random byte and the third pass with the complement of the 2nd pass

US Department of Defense DoD 5220.22-M (E), 3 Passes, DoD 5220.22-M (E) is a three pass overwriting algorithm: first pass – with zeroes, second pass – with ones and the last pass – with random data

US Air Force 5020, 3 Passes, US Air Force 5020 is a three pass overwriting algorithm with the first pass being that of a random byte, followed by two passes of complement data (shifted 8 and 16 bits right respectively)

US Department of Defense DoD 5220.22-M(ECE), 7 Passes, DoD 5220.22-M(ECE) is seven pass overwriting algorithm: first, fourth and fifth pass with a random byte, its 8 right-bit shift complement and 16 right-bit shift complement; second and sixth passes with zeroes, and third and seventh pass with random data

Canadian RCMP TSSIT OPS-II, 7 Passes, RCMP TSSIT OPS-II is a seven pass overwriting algorithm with three alternating patterns of zeroes and ones and the last pass – with a random byte

German VSITR, 7 Passes, The German standard calls for data to be overwritten with three alternating patterns of zeroes and ones and in the last pass with random data

Schneier’s Algorithm, 7 Passes, The Bruce Schneier algorithm has seven passes: first pass – with ones, the second pass – with zeroes and then five times with random data
