WireEdit – Full Stack WYSIWYG Network Packet Editor

By | InfoSec, Tools | No Comments

Yet again, the Twittersphere pointed out another neat looking tool, WireEdit.  I first noticed this via @Cyberarms’ tweet:

WireEdit appears to let you edit network packets at any OSI Model layer, via a WYSIWYG editor. Looks neat, but I have not had the opportunity to play with it yet. If I do, I’ll be sure to update this post.

ThreatWatch – Open Source Intelligence Dashboard

By | InfoSec, OSINT, Threat Intelligence, Tools | 2 Comments

I’ve spent some time lately researching Open Source Intelligence feeds, dashboards, etc.  I was trying to set up the Collective Intelligence Framework (CIF) and the Kibana dashboard associated with it, but ran into some snags. Namely, anytime I enabled the Kibana dashboard on my Ubuntu VM, it caused the CIF command-line tools to fail.

While troubleshooting (via my very best Google-fu), I came across ThreatWatch, a project that already has this implemented, running, and even added a large amount of additional feeds to what the Collective Intelligence Framework has.

A full list of feeds/data sources contained in ThreatWatch is available here: http://www.threatwatch.ie/feeds

A link to the ThreatWatch dashboard is available here: https://feeds.threatwatch.ie/#/dashboard/file/default.json. An example screenshot of the dashboard is below as well:

Facebook Old Password vs Incorrect Password

By | InfoSec | 2 Comments

So, I went to log into Facebook today, but typed in an incorrect password. Well, actually it was an old password. Facebook, in all its infinite wisdom, stated this – “Sorry! You entered an old password” as well as informed me when I last changed my password (click the image below to see the full-size version):
