Barnyard2 – Dedicated Spooler for Snort Output

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


Barnyard2 is an open source dedicated spooler for Snort output as unified2 binary output files. Its primary use is allowing Snort to write to disk in an efficient manner and leaving the task of parsing binary data into various formats to a separate process that will not cause Snort to miss network traffic.

Barnyard2 - Dedicated Spooler for Snort Output

How it Works

Barnyard2 has 3 modes of operation:

  1. batch (or one-shot),
  2. continual, and
  3. continual w/ bookmark.

In batch (or one-shot) mode, barnyard2 will process the explicitly specified file(s) and exit.

In continual mode, barnyard2 will start with a location to look and a specified file pattern and continue to process new data (and new spool files) as they appear.

Continual mode w/ bookmarking will also use a checkpoint file (or waldo file in the snort world) to track where it is. In the event, the barnyard2 process ends while a waldo file is in use, barnyard2 will resume processing at the last entry as listed in the waldo file.

Barnyard2 processing is controlled by two main types of directives: input processors and output plugins. The input processors read information in from a specific format ( currently the spo_unified2 output module of Snort) and output them in one of several ways.


Usage

Examples

1. Using barnyard2 in continuous mode with a waldo file

2. Using barnyard2 in batch mode

China To Outlaw All Unapproved Darknet VPN Services

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


So the latest news from behind the Great Firewall of China is that they plan to crack down on all unapproved Darknet VPN services. This means all VPN providers, cloud service providers and ISPs will have to seek an annually renewed licence to operate a VPN Service.

China To Outlaw All Unapproved VPN Services

PureVPN Lifetime for $99

Really, not very surprising coming out of China and I’m honestly shocked it took them this long. I’m curious as to how this will work though, for providers based outside of China – how will they get licenced? Or will they even care?

The Chinese government has started an 18-month crackdown that will require all Darknet VPN providers to seek government approval for their activities if they want to stay in business.

The news, announced by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Sunday, says that the market for services that bypass the content filters installed by the government needs more regulation.

In a statement, the agency claimed that the VPN and cloud computing market was undergoing “disorderly development” and that there was an “urgent need for regulation norms.” As such, the agency has decided that, in order to “promote the healthy and orderly development,” the government will have to approve any services that bypass the Great Firewall.

As a result, every ISP, cloud services provider, and VPN reseller will need to apply to their regional government office for a license to operate. They will also have to demonstrate to the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences that they have hardened up the security of their services to deal with current internet threats.

These licenses to operate will have to be renewed on an annual basis and failure to get one will lead to company bosses being “severely punished according to law.” The Ministry also reserves the right to conduct spot checks at any time to enforce compliance.


What is a Darknet VPN?

What I suspect is that China will use this as a tool to arbitrarily block large segments of the Internet from its citizens citing this new law, making all the providers unlicensed and therefore illegal.

The whole “disorderly development” thing literally made me LOL, what an angle. That’s the whole point of cloud computing right? Decoupling, scale, fast roll-out of new services = disorderly in the eyes of the Chinese government.

So that the Middle Kingdom mandarins know exactly what’s going on, the Ministry will submit quarterly reports on the state of the VPN and internet connection markets and will regularly publicize the progress of the work of standardizing the clean-up work – ie, name and shame those companies breaking the law.

This isn’t the first time the Chinese have tried to clamp down on the VPN market – a similar crackdown was announced in 2015, albeit with limited success. But this announcement looks a lot more serious, with official government action promised.

VPN services are increasingly popular in China, and they are used by government officials at the highest level. The architect of China’s Great Firewall used one publicly himself last year when he found himself blocked by his own creation.

This latest crackdown is needed to quell the activities of online criminals and introduce order. It’s merely a coincidence that the Chinese Communist Party is holding its 19th National Congress this autumn and would like to have it without pesky internet users getting information from the outside world.

They have tried to do something similar before, with limited success. They do seem a lot more serious this time though, I’ll be interested to see what kind of direction this takes and how it impacts International providers.

China, oh China. Get the best VPN service here for life at only $99.99.

icmpsh – Simple ICMP Reverse Shell

Use Netsparker


icmpsh is a simple ICMP reverse shell with a win32 slave and a POSIX-compatible master in C, Perl or Python. The main advantage over the other similar open source tools is that it does not require administrative privileges to run onto the target machine.

icmpsh - Simple ICMP Reverse Shell

The tool is clean, easy and portable. The slave (client) runs on the target Windows machine, it is written in C and works on Windows only whereas the master (server) can run on any platform on the attacker machine as it has been implemented in C and Perl by and this port is in Python.

Features

  • Open source software.
  • Client/server architecture.
  • The master is portable across any platform that can run either C, Perl or Python code.
  • The target system has to be Windows because the slave runs on that platform only for now.
  • The user running the slave on the target system does not require administrative privileges.

Running the master

The master is straight forward to use. There are no extra libraries required for the C and Python versions. The Perl master however, has the following dependencies:

  • IO::Socket
  • NetPacket::IP
  • NetPacket::ICMP

When running the master, don’t forget to disable ICMP replies by the OS. For example:

If you miss doing that, you will receive information from the slave, but the slave is unlikely to receive commands send from the master.

Running the slave

The slave comes with a few command line options as outlined below:

In order to improve the speed, lower the delay (-d) between requests or increase the size (-s) of the data buffer.

Free Manual Pen-Testing Tools

Use Netsparker


Not long after releasing v11 of their scanner, Acunetix has decided to deliver free manual pen-testing tools. Previously these tools were only available to paying Acunetix customers, now anyone can use them to make their manual web application testing easier.

Free Manual Pen Testing Tools

Penetration testers can make use of an HTTP Editor to modify or craft HTTP requests and analyse responses; intercept and modify HTTP traffic on the fly using the integrated HTTP Sniffer; fuzz test HTTP requests using the HTTP Fuzzer and test Blind SQL Injection vulnerabilities further using the Blind SQL Injector, among others.

The Tools

  • HTTP Editor: Allows you to create, analyze and edit client HTTP requests; as well as inspect server responses. It also includes an encoding and decoding tool to encode/decode text and URL’s to MD5 hashes, UTF-7 and other formats.
  • HTTP Sniffer: A proxy that allows you to analyse HTTP requests and responses, and edit these while they are in transit. The HTTP sniffer can also be used to manually crawl a site, and use the manual crawl to seed an Acunetix scan.
  • HTTP Fuzzer: A tool which allows you to automatically send a large number of HTTP requests including invalid, unexpected and random data to a website, to test input validation and handling of invalid data by the web application.
  • Blind SQL Injector: An automated database data exfiltration tool. By using Blind SQL injection vulnerabilities discovered when scanning a website, it is possible to demonstrate the serious impact a Blind SQL injection vulnerability can have on the website. Used to enumerate databases, tables, fields and dump data from the vulnerable web application.
  • Subdomain Scanner: Scans a top-level domain to discover subdomains configured in its hierarchy, by using the target domain’s DNS server, or any other DNS server specified by the user. While scanning, this tool will also automatically identify and inform the user if the domain being scanned is using some kind of wildcard characters, such as *.domain.com.
  • Target Finder: An IP range / port scanner which can be used to discover running web servers on a given IP or within a specified range of IPs. The list of ports on which the web servers are listening can also be configured. The default ports the scanner will scan are port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for SSL.
  • Authentication Tester: Used to test the strength of both usernames and passwords within HTTP and web forms authentication environments via a dictionary attack.
