Julian Assange

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

So Mr.Assange has declined to surrend him self at this time.  This should not be seen as a insult to the local police and the order, at this point the international law would take precedence.  Once Ecuador has reviewed this application he will either leave or stay.  If he stays he might never...

Messing with drones

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

The implications of this could be bad. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18643134 The short version is that they use cheap equipment ( sub $1,000 ) to create a fake GPS signal to confuse the drone.  This could range from crashing it in to something like a building or the ground or...

Mega Updates

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

A NZ judge has ruled that the search warrants used to raid Mr.Dotcoms home were invalid.  It seems that the warrants were too vague when it came to the material they were searching for. The judge also ruled that the copy of the data that was taken was also...

New Tool

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

Mandiant has added a new tool to their repository. http://www.mandiant.com/resources/downloads/ It's a memory analysis tool for Macs. https://blog.mandiant.com/archives/2866 I can't wait for an excuse to use it for something constructive.  You will find tools like...

Update to WinAUTOPWN

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

Fun little framework to play with. http://120.61.144.194/w/   I usually prefer *nix based tools but it's always good to have a spare around.

Hash cracking with GPU’s

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

Most interesting thing I have seen on this topic in a long time. http://www.troyhunt.com/2012/06/our-password-hashing-has-no-clothes.html For quick reference here is the software he is using. http://hashcat.net/oclhashcat-plus/ My spare machines never had a video card that was capable...

Lulz Sec updates

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

A couple of the accused members have pleaded guilty, my thoughts are there was some sort of deal.  But you never know if they did not want to have to go through a trial.  It could also have implications on sentencing, making the difference between months and years.

More cyberwar / corporate espionage stuff

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

This happens far more then is reported. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/9346734/Espionage-virus-sent-blueprints-to-China.html Surprisingly Chinese government authorities have assisted with the investigation, typically this can be very difficult to have international law...

Flame malware authors

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

I don't think it's surprising to hear that it was a government behind the development of the Flame malware.  What I am shocked to hear is that there is sources directly confirming this.
