NAC ATTACK! - Researchers in Germany today demonstrated a tool that allows an unauthorized PC to disguise itself as a legitimate client in a Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC) environment, effectively circumventing the networking giant's end-point security strategy.
WRT54G Wireless Monitor
Using a WRTSL54GS we have hacked it to:
- Sniff wireless packets while channel hopping using kismet_drone
- Monitor bluetooth devices using the bluez stack and a hacked Linksys BT100 Class 1 device with an external antenna connector
- Remotely monitor the 2.4Ghz spectrum with Wi-Spy and a specially ported remote agent called LINUXSpy
Stories For Discussion
First Bug Released in TWOVB - [PaulDotCom] - I will borrow from J0hnny Long, and ask l33t or lame?
Windows ANI "Unspecified" Vulnerability - [PaulDotCom] - The link provided contains more resources, a patch installation file, and complete patch source code. Good, Bad, Indifferent? I think for individuals, a 3rd party patch is great. For organizations with more than a few desktops, its debatable. [Larry] - MS released the patch for this on Tuesday, a week early. QA issues anyone?. One otof the videos I was on this was great - ANI on desktop sends explorer on Vista into a crash loop.
USB 2.0 hub via 802.11g - [Larry] - Please buy these. It will make my job of sniffing your files, keyboard and any other USB transmissions easier. (Wireshark supports USB snooping).
Busting Bluetooth: Finding Bluetooth Sniffing Hardware - [PaulDotCom] - From what I can tell you can buy an off-the-shelf bluetooth dongle and turn it into a sniffer by flashing the firmware. However, this still requires a commercial application to sit on top of this in order to collect the packets. [Larry] I wonder how many other items are like this? Airpcap anyone?
Radio Shack Dumpster diving - [Larry] - While not technology, records disposal should be part of your IT (or other) security planning. Low tech hacking (dumpster diving) often yeilds interesting results.
You too can be a porn star - [Larry] - Just leave naked pics of your vulnerable and then compromised machine. HACK NAKED!
Close to (Conference) home - [Larry] - Looks like the Navy lost 3 laptops with PII (Personally Identifiable Information) on them...right here, across the harbor here in San Diego. Password protection doesn't cut it!
WEP broken even more... - [Larry] - Now, 104 bit (weak!) with only 40-80K packets, with 50-95% reliability. All done in under 60 seconds.
Blackhat Europe Presentations Online - [PaulDotCom] - Its a good rule of thumb, when there are hacker cons you are not able to attend, read the presentations, watch the videos, or listen to audio, what ever they provide, its almost as good as going to the con!
Wifi Fuzzing Presentation with notes from BH EU - [PaulDotCom] - From the authors of Raw Glue AP
