THC-ePassports – THC Clones Biometric ePassport – Elvis Presley Passport


I guess most people have been led to believe this new generation of ePassports or biometric passports are more secure, will help us keep our privacy intact and help us mitigate against identity theft.

Well how wrong the propaganda is! THC (famous for their tools and research in security) has just released some technical information, tools and a video which shows their cloned passport being read and verified by a passport reader.

The government plans to use ePassports at Immigration and Border Control. The information is electronically read from the Passport and displayed to a Border Control Officer or used by an automated setup. THC has discovered weaknesses in the system to (by)pass the security checks. The detection of fake passport chips does not work. Test setups do not raise alerts when a modified chip is used. This enables an attacker to create a Passport with an altered Picture, Name, DoB, Nationality and other credentials.

The manipulated information is displayed without any alarms going off. The exploitation of this loophole is trivial and can be verified using thc-epassport. Regardless how good the intention of the government might have been, the facts are that tested implementations of the ePassports Inspection System are not secure.

The passport reader appears to be in the Netherlands from my guise, but all the passports in use are the same just the templates slightly different.

Nice to see you again Mr Presley…imagine what could be done with this flaw in the sytem? I wonder if anything will be done about this or it’ll just be brushed under the carpet and remain knowledge of the security community.

Superscan v4.0 – Fast TCP & UDP Port Scanner for Windows


This is another tool that has been around for a long time and I’ve been using it for years since it’s earliest versions, oddly however I’ve never posted about it.

So here it for the few of you that haven’t heard of it, probably the best port scanner on the Windows platform, very fast and compact and has good banner grabbing functionality.

SuperScan 4 is an update of the highly popular Windows port scanning tool, SuperScan.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 has removed raw sockets support which now limits SuperScan and many other network scanning tools. Some functionality can be restored by running the following at the Windows command prompt before starting SuperScan:

Same goes if you’re using nmap for Windows.

Features

Here are some of the new features in this version.

  • Superior scanning speed
  • Support for unlimited IP ranges
  • Improved host detection using multiple ICMP methods
  • TCP SYN scanning
  • UDP scanning (two methods)
  • IP address import supporting ranges and CIDR formats
  • Simple HTML report generation
  • Source port scanning
  • Fast hostname resolving
  • Extensive banner grabbing
  • Massive built-in port list description database
  • IP and port scan order randomization
  • A selection of useful tools (ping, traceroute, Whois etc)
  • Extensive Windows host enumeration capability

You can download Superscan v4.0 here:

Or read more here.

Note that SuperScan 4 is intended for Windows 2000 and XP only. Administrator privileges are required to run the program. It will not run on Windows 95/98/ME. You may need to try SuperScan v3 if this will not work with your system.
