Real World Information Security

Alex uncovered a poorly designed web page and convinced it to give up its secrets. What followed was a quick RDP war trying to plant our backdoor. I found myself with root level access having blasted away at it using Metasploit and uncovered several Easter eggs instructors had planted...

On Surviving Black Hat

August 03, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The sessions felt somewhat lack-luster – a lot of what I was hearing had been said before. Many of the conversations were consistent with other events and the topics felt replayed. The horrifically long coffee queue at Starbucks provided me with time to people watch, so here are my Black Hat 2012 observations...

Blackhat, BSidesLV and DefCon Oh My... 2012 Edition

August 01, 2012 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

Don’t Freak Out, It was Only DefCon

July 31, 2012 Added by:Brent Huston

Disregard tales of drunken hackers menacing Vegas hotels, changing signs and doing social engineering attacks. They are good for amusement and awareness, but they are NOT really useful as a lens for viewing your organization’s risk or the steps you should be taking to protect your data. Instead, stick to the basics...

Information Security, Hackers, and Vigilance

July 30, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The bottom line: Attackers are always looking for mistakes, outliers, and inconsistencies so they can use them against you. This means your security programs need to be robust, resilient, measurable, and – as much as possible – consistent (vs. ad hoc)...

July 09, 2012 Added by:Edward Jones

Wherever you are on the internet, there’s often a virus lurking around the digital corner. A hacker will always find a new way of getting your data - and turning it into money.
