If you followed IT security related blogs or mailinglists lately, you are aware that a critical server service vulnerability in Microsoft operating systems was published recently. I'm not going to talk about the details here, there are great resources available elsewhere (and the "reversing the ms08-067 patch" article isn't the only advice about exploiting holes you get on that page).
OK, what have we got this time? One of our honeytrap sensors caught an MS08-067 exploitation attempt today which we take as an example to show how to perform a quick analysis and check what it does. If you want to play along, get the (sanitized) pcap from here.
I've been looking on ipv6 lately, and even though I got a global /64 for free from he.net, I'm not that amused about ipv6 yet.
After long development, we have finally managed to produce release version 2 of HeX, codename “Bonobo”. What’s news in HeX 2.0? Check out https://trac.security.org.my/hex/wiki/WhatsNew. Official announcement at http://groups.google.com/group/HeX-liveCD/browse_thread/thread/9a70e96591639ff9
Got several calls from customers today. Their end-customers were calling them telling that their phone is ringing in the middle of the night. When some of them answers, there is no one there. We do some traces on it from our VoIP platform but can not find anything, and concludes there is random SIP INVITES beeing sent directly to the adapter.
This is a common way of searching for open VoIP gateways. They send a SIP INVITE with a real number that they control. If the SIP INVITE is making a successful call to this destination, the traffic suddenly increases after a while.
As effort of the Honeynet Project Malaysian chapter and the RawPacket team initiative, HeX LiveCD was created. It is a Network Security Monitoring (NSM) centric Live CD, built based on the principles of NSM, for analysts, by analysts. This project will be eventually forked to Hex Sensor and Hex Server to complete the cycle of NSM processes. Besides, HeX LiveCD is the blueprint for HornyD. HornyD and HoneySuckle are the toolkits for the Malaysia Distributed Honeynet Project.
Just received account details from the HP. New blog space for me to post some stuff. ;-)
Emulation is an important technology in honeypots and honeynets. It's not always what we want, though, and here's why. As you might know, most bots perform attacks in multiple stages, i.e., they
Catching the exploit and providing a fake shell isn't too hard, as shown in this post. But we certainly don't want a malware to get executed on our honeypot, not even in an emulated environment. Instead, we want to do different things with it, e.g., submit it to a central service for automated analysis.
Greetings! First I want to start off by thanking Steve Mumford, Christine Kilger, Jamie Riden, David Watson and Markus Koetter, they are the people that made our new website possible. Second, I wanted to share with you how excited I am about this. One of the challenges we have had for years is coordinating all the different research projects are members are doing. This site will allow each person to share as much as they want, however they want. Expect things like individual blogs, special interest groups and other research areas.
