Even my Warcraft guild is infected by conversational marketing: a Federated Media contest for HP computers is driving buzz for those products on my guild’s forums and in-game chat. Publicis Modem is in the game, too, I just got spammed by “Tracy” who is “reaching out to me” to participate in a “viral international buzz campaign”. What’s scarier are when community members inject advertising in their blogs and forum posts without appropriate disclosure. At least “people ready” showed up in clearly marked banner ads. Draper Fisher Jurvetson funded PayPerPost is a whole business walking this shaky ethical line.
Their broken, buggy software that results in your money being stolen by Russian gangsters. Adobe bears special responsibility here for their software that’s installed on every computer on the planet. Adobe did get a patch out Oct 22, amazingly just one day before the PDF worm was disclosed. But given how awful the Reader upgrade experience is I suspect a lot of computers are unpatched.
He’s probably been too busy having off the record conversations in Hawai’i. Note it has to be localhost because Debian doesn’t listen on TCP/IP by default; use ssh. Your hard drive will fail someday, too. I was worried it’d be. My home Linux server with all my files had a hard.
It seems the whole thing has brought some attention to the internet security folks:. Nkiller2 is the POC tool I made for my article Exploiting TCP and the Persist Timer Infiniteness which was published at the latest Phrack issue. It exploits an RFC-compliant TCP Persist Timer behaviour, perpetual to every Operating System out there to perform a pretty devastating DoS attack.
But look at my code only after you’ve implemented your own version. You can find the modified version here. I’ll leave it as an exercise for you to update the WSGI server from Part 2 and make it concurrent. So go and just do it :). You have all the necessary information to do that.
The server was running MySQL 5. Mysql -uroot ERROR 1040. 27 via an rpm install. Europeans will be busy in November where you will find dedicated MySQL tracks with. $ rpm -qa , grep -i mysql MySQL-. Localhost , odtug , Query , 116 , Locked , select * from test1 , 15 , good , localhost.
Covering many aspects of intruding into a network, Bernardo Damele showed us that an attacker should have many different ideas, tools and techniques in his arsenal in order to subvert one or many systems. One of the most interesting talks of the day. I really liked the part with the sys_* analysis.

The GSoC/Ncrack Presentation slides are a brief overview of the subjects that were discussed during the lecture. I recently gave a talk at a local linux user group about my involvement with Google Summer of Code 2009 and some of the technical aspects of the project I undertook: Ncrack.
Email documents have to be interpreted in a restricted environment. There is no consumer computing platform today with a useful restricted environment. The problem is the fundamental security model is broken. You can’t blame users for opening attachments; emailing PDFs is useful, good activity.
Another Google Summer of Code has come to its end. I participated this year in the Nmap project working on Ncrack once again. I started Ncrack in last year’s GSoC from scratch under the mentorship of Nmap’s original author Fyodor and it already includes dozens of features that make it unique as a high-speed network authentication cracking tool.
