-  - [Larry] - So, Safari stores session states (you know when it closes your browser, and all the tabs come back when you re-open?) in an unencrypted plist file that is world readable. If any of the urls unclude username and password, game over. Looks like someone might need to add this to metasploit enum module…
- Redux from the Dragos isn't so crazy department - [Larry] - Recovering 4069 bit RSA keys using acoustic analysis of HF tones. You call BS? One of the researchers is Adi Shamir, the “S” in RSA and the “S” in the FMS WEP attack.
- Build your own Shodan - [Larry] - Great post from Robert Graham about leveraging the power of CCC’s 100-Gbps internet pope to do some portscans with masscan.
- Snapchat dump - [Larry] - A wretched hive of scum and villainy. Snapchat gets their API leveraged to tie a user to a phone number. 4.6 millions records harvested and released. Now the CSV is interesting in that some additional information was added - IE an attempt to map area code to state/location. Too bad they did it wrong; 617 is not in Michigan.
- More snapchat - - [Larry] - You too can now see the code used to partially dump snapchat. They have allegedly “fixed” the problem, with a totally lame response.
- Epic backdoor - [Larry] - So, that high number “random” port running on your consumer wireless router? Yeah, it does stuff. All sorts of stuff, including doing a reset, coughing up admin passwords, nvram dump, shell, and WPA PSK. Now we need two things: Shodan to index this port (see personal Shodan story), and for Nessus to gather this info for us. /me looks at Jack, then Paul.
- Spaf says we're "out of balance" What's he talking about? "Computing, as a field in the USA, has had a low and almost constantly decreasing percentage of women going into the field and staying."
- Robert Graham says "We have to boycott RSA"and here is the scorecard on those who have withdrawn talks or training from the RSA Conference. the folks at Securosis see things differently in this video and Martin McKeay has some thoughts in this blog post. You may be surprised to learn that I have a few thoughts myself.
