Throughout the week I share interesting tidbits I come across with my co-author, Christian. He said I tend to look at some pretty interesting stuff and suggested that I start compiling a list of links relevant to the risk3sixty blog.
Below are my links for the week of 6/15/2015, along with a short description of each:
- Malware used Foxconn digital certificate to spy on Iran nuclear talks: Kaspersky verifies that malware used stolen digital certificates to make it appear that hacking traffic was being generated through China. The malware is widely believed to have been a joint development between the USA and Israel.
- How to use Nmap- For Beginners: An intro video on using the popular port scanning utility NMap, which is great for use in Network Vulnerability Assessments.
- Linux and Unix halt, poweroff and reboot commands: Upon installing Kali Linux in a VM on my laptop, I discovered the only way to power the OS down is via command line!
- Secure Your Wireless Router: 8 Things You Can Do Right Now: The best ‘How To’ guide I’ve found yet for securing a home router.
- SSL Checker and Diagnostic Tool: If you’re auditing a web app utilizing secure certificates, this online utility is a great way to kick off your audit.
- How To Install and Use ADB, the Android Debug Bridge Utility: ADB is a command-line utility that can be used for file transfer back and forth between your Android device and PC. I broke my wife’s phone last week by trying to remove carrier apps and accidentally removed some required system files. I used this to fix the issue.
