Powerfuzzer – Automated Customizable Web Fuzzer


Powerfuzzer is a highly automated and fully customizable web fuzzer (HTTP protocol based application fuzzer) based on many other Open Source fuzzers available and information gathered from numerous security resources and websites.

It was designed to be user-friendly, modern, effective and to work consistently.

Powerfuzzer - Automated Customizable Web Fuzzer

It is also designed and coded to be modular and extendable, adding new checks should simply entail adding new methods.

It’s based on tools such as cfuzzer, fuzzled, fuzzer.pl, jbrofuzz, webscarab, wapiti, Socket Fuzzer and more.


Features

Currently, it is capable of identifying these problems:

  • Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
  • Injections (SQL, LDAP, Code, Commands and XPATH)
  • CRLF
  • HTTP 500 statuses (usually indicative of a possible misconfiguration/security flaw incl. buffer overflow)

Angry IP Scanner Download – Fast Network IP Scanner


Angry IP scanner is a very easy to use, fast network IP scanner – basically a cross-platform IP address and port scanner. It can scan IP addresses in any range as well as any their ports, it’s also very lightweight and doesn’t require any installation, it can be freely copied and used anywhere.

Angry IP Scanner Download - Fast Network IP Scanner


Angry IP scanner simply pings each IP address to check if it’s alive, then optionally it is resolving its hostname, determines the MAC address, scans ports, etc. The amount of gathered data about each host can be extended with plugins.

How Angry IP Scanner Works

Angry IP Scanner implements several different methods of detecting alive hosts (pinging).

As a rule, if hosts don’t respond to pings, they are considered dead and therefore not scanned further. This behaviour can be changed in the Preferences dialogue -> Scanning tab. In the same place, you can also select the pinging method:

  • ICMP Echo pinging – This is the same method used by the ping program.
  • ICMP.DLL pinging – This is Windows-only pinging method to compensate for the absence of Raw Sockets.
  • UDP packet pinging – This pinging method is preferred when you don’t have administrative privileges.
  • TCP port probe – This method tries to connect to some TCP port that is unlikely to be filtered (e.g. 80).

Features of Angry IP Scanner

  • Very fast (multi-threaded)
  • Scan IP addresses in any range
  • Scan for open ports
  • Cross-platform
  • Portable (doesn’t require installation)
  • Hostname Resolution
  • MAC address capture
  • NetBIOS information gathering
    • Computer Name
    • WorkGroup Name
    • Logged in User
  • Favourite IP ranges
  • Web Server detection
  • Customizable openers
  • Scanning results in:
    • CSV
    • TXT
    • XML
    • IP-Port List

WikiLeaks Exposes Massive CIA Leak Including Hacking Tools


WikiLeaks has dropped another massive bomb called “Vault7“, basically a massive CIA leak which covers documents, correspondence, hacking tools, exploits and much more.

It details sophisticated software tools and techniques used by the agency to break into smartphones, computers and even Smart TVs.

WikiLeaks Exposes Massive CIA Leak Including Hacking Tools

The first installment published already contains 7,818 web pages with 943 attachments and WikiLeaks has stated this is only part of the cache.

It also appears the CIA has managed to circumvent the security controls in Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram – most likely by compromising the phone and grabbing the plain-text rather than cracking the encryption itself.

WikiLeaks has dumped online what appears to be a trove of CIA documents outlining the American murder-snoops’ ability to spy on people.

The leaked files describe security exploits used to compromise vulnerable Android handhelds, Apple iPhones, Samsung TVs, Windows PCs, Macs, and other devices, to read messages, listen in via built-in microphones, and so on. The dossiers discuss malware that can infect CD and DVD disc file systems, and USB sticks, to jump air-gaps and compromise sensitive and protected machines – plus loads more spying techniques and tools.

Yes, government surveillance has a chilling effect on freedom of expression. But, no, none of this cyber-spying should be a surprise.

The tranche of CIA documents – a mammoth 8,761 files dubbed “Year Zero” – accounts for “the entire hacking capacity of the CIA,” WikiLeaker-in-chief Julian Assange boasted today. He said the documents show the intelligence agency had lost “control of its arsenal” of exploits and hacking tools, suggesting they were passed to the website by a rogue operative.


It’s pretty similar in many ways to the 2016 NSA Shadow Brokers hack we wrote about.

The CIA hasn’t publically confirmed the authenticity of the documents but 3rd parties have including former intelligence officers.

“‘Year Zero’ introduces the scope and direction of the CIA’s global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal, and dozens of ‘zero day’ weaponized exploits against a wide range of US and European company products, [including] Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android, Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung’s TVs, which are turned into covert microphones,” the WikiLeaks team said in a statement.

“The archive appears to have been circulated among former US government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive,” it added.

One silver lining is that this leak demonstrates it is so difficult to crack today’s end-to-end encryption apps, such as Signal and WhatsApp, that spies have to drill into the underlying devices and computers to snoop on people. That’s a lot of effort, cost, and risk, compared to eavesdropping on communications on the wire, which strong end-to-end cryptography comfortably thwarts. Agents are therefore forced to carry out targeted snooping on individuals’ devices, rather than carry out mass blanket surveillance.

Meanwhile, some folks are speculating that the source of the leak could be the Russians, and its true purpose is to derail the CIA for political gain.

Many of the tools, attachments and code archives have been redacted by WikiLeaks who stated it was notreleasing the computer code for actual, usable weapons “until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the C.I.A.’s program and how such ‘weapons’ should be analyzed, disarmed and published.”

What’s contained aren’t exactly really zero-day exploits anymore though as this cache is claimed to be from 2013-2016 – but looks more like it’s predominantly from the 2013-2014 period.

That said, I won’t be getting a TV with a micrphone or a camera any time soon.

mongoaudit – MongoDB Auditing & Pen-testing Tool


mongoaudit is a CLI tool for MongoDB auditing of servers, detecting poor security settings and performing automated penetration testing.

mongoaudit - MongoDB Auditing & Pen-testing Tool

It is widely known that there are quite a few holes in MongoDB’s default configuration settings. This fact, combined with abundant lazy system administrators and developers, has led to what the press has called the MongoDB Ransack.

And just last week we wrote about Another MongoDB Hack Leaks Two Million Recordings Of Kids.

mongoaudit not only detects misconfigurations, known vulnerabilities and bugs but also gives you advice on how to fix them, recommends best practices and teaches you how to DevOp like a pro!


Features

mongoaudit tests that:

  • MongoDB listens on a port different to default one
  • Server only accepts connections from whitelisted hosts / networks
  • MongoDB HTTP status interface is not accessible on port 28017
  • MongoDB is not exposing its version number
  • MongoDB version is newer than 2.4
  • TLS/SSL encryption is enabled
  • Authentication is enabled
  • SCRAM-SHA-1 authentication method is enabled
  • Server-side Javascript is forbidden
  • Roles granted to the user only permit CRUD operations
  • The user has permissions over a single database

Once you run any of the test suites provided by mongoaudit, it will offer you to receive a fully detailed report via email. This personalised report links to a series of useful guides on how to fix every specific issue and how to harden your MongoDB deployments.

Another MongoDB Hack Leaks Two Million Recordings Of Kids


No surprises here, but there’s been another big MongoDB hack and from the looks of it, it’s been owned for quite some time. This time 2 million records from over 820,000 accounts have been leaked due to yet another default MongoDB installation with no authentication listening on the public IP address.

Another MongoDB Hack Leaks Two Million Recordings Of Kids

The terrible part is, this has been happening for a while, the company has known about it and done nothing to secure it. What I suspect is if they turned auth on, the bears would probably stop working, and they couldn’t do that could they? I imagine they don’t have a firmware push facility built in to the bear.

Two million voice recordings of kids and their families were exposed online and repeatedly held to ransom – because an IoT stuffed-toy maker used an insecure MongoDB installation.

Essentially, the $40 cuddly CloudPets feature builtin microphones and speakers, and connect to the internet via an iOS or Android app on a nearby smartphone or tablet. Families can use the fake animals to exchange voice messages between their children, friends, and relatives.

For example, a parent away on a work trip can open the CloudPets app on their smartphone, record an audio message, and beam it to their kid’s toy via a tablet within Bluetooth range of the gizmo at home; the recording plays when the tyke press a button on the animal’s paw.

Similarly, the youngsters can record messages using the stuffed creature, and send the audio over to their mom, dad, grandparent, and so on, via the internet-connected app.


I suspect this was probably one of the earlier victms of the MongoDB Ransack that was exposed in January, with CloudPets being hit first sometime in December.

And even earlier last year was one of the first big public cases caused by MongoDB – BeautifulPeople.com Leak Exposes 1.1M Extremely Private Records.

These voice clips, along with records of 820,000 CloudPets.com accounts associated with the each of the toys, have been left wide open on the internet, with no password protection – allowing gigabytes of sensitive material to potentially fall into the hands of criminals. And it’s all due to the company’s poorly secured NoSQL database holding 10GB of this internal information.

CloudPets’ internet-facing MongoDB installation, on port 2701 at 45.79.147.159, required no authentication to access, and was repeatedly extorted by miscreants, evidence shows. The database contains links to .WAV files of voice messages hosted in the Amazon AWS S3 cloud, again accessible with no authentication, potentially allowing the mass slurping of more than two million highly personal conversations between families and their little ones.

It appears crooks found the database, presumably by scanning the public ‘net for insecure MongoDB installations, took a copy of all the data, deleted that data on the server, and left a note demanding payment for the safe return of a copy of the database. This happened three times, we’re told. Copies of data lifted from the CloudPets system has been passed between underground hacking groups, too, apparently.

I suspect we’ll see more of these as time goes on, the juicy ones have most likely been kept private for as long as possible to extort maximum value. They will only go public when one of the good guys gets wind of it (with proof). I have some reports of leaks too but I haven’t been able to validate them.

This one is pretty sad though, with kids voice messages being exposed. As a parent I can say I’ll not be allowing any IoT style toys anywhere near my kids, or cloud cameras or anything vaguely similar. If they want to send me a message they can use a Google Hangout or something.
