sed and awk will always rock, (Sun, May 18th)

Fresh off our discussion regarding PowerShell, now for something completely different. In order to bring balance to the force I felt I should share with you my recent use of sed , “the ultimate s tream ed itor” and awk , “an extremely versatile programming language for working on files” to solve one of fourteen challenges in a recent CTF exercise I participated in. The challenge included only a legitimate bitmap file (BMP) that had been modified via least siginficant bit (LSB) steganography and the following details

Breaches and Attacks that are "Not in Scope", (Thu, May 15th)

Last week, we saw Orange (a Telecom company based in France) compromised, with the info for 1.3 million clients breach.  At this time, it does not appear that any credit card numbers or credentials were exposed in that event.(http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/07/france-telecomunications-idUSL6N0NT2I120140507) The interesting thing about this data breach was that it involved systems that would not be considered “primary” – the site compromised housed contact information for customers who had “opted in” to receive sales and marketing information.

This is not a test/typo: Support for Windows 8.1 Ends Tomorrow!, (Thu, May 8th)

It hasn’t really been reported much, but just after Microsoft sort of stopped releasing patches for Windows XP last month, we now have to get going on the next phase-out: Windows 8.1!  As Microsoft wraps it in beautiful marketing speak:  ” Since Microsoft wants to ensure that customers benefit from the best support and servicing experience and to coordinate and simplify servicing across both Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1 RT and Windows 8.1, this update will be considered a new servicing/support baseline… beginning with the May Patch Tuesday, Windows 8.1 user’s devices without the update installed will no longer receive security updates.” [1] To make things a bit more interesting, there are 3 different versions of what people commonly refer to as “Windows 8″: “Windows 8″ , “Windows 8.1″ and “Windows 8.1 Update”.  I guess in the old days, “Windows 8.1 Update” would be considered a “Service Pack”. But then again, that would be something people are used to and not all that confused by, so Microsoft figured to mix it up and call this one “Windows 8.1 Update”
