This is the second part in our series of security/penetration testing/ethical hacking articles, continuing where we left off in part 1. This will be a slightly longer post, but stick with it and you’ll see just how easy it is.
The application 'casrvc' was installed with setuid privileges and had functionality to output to a user defined log file. By specifying a crafted invalid service name and outputting to a privileged file such as /etc/passwd it was possible to modify the system configuration to give the user root access.
And now for the article many people have been waiting for: Dodonpachi! Unfortunately, I didn't make it in time for the 20th anniversary of the game on February 5th, but oh well; better late than never right? This game seems to have a larger following than it's predecessor, so I'm sure shmup fans will enjoy the re-enabled debugging tools available to play around with. There's not much else to say, so here we go!
These datasets are used for machine learning research and have been cited in peer-reviewed academic journals and other publications. Datasets are an integral part of the field of machine learning. Major advances in this field can result from advances in learning algorithms (such as deep learning), computer hardware, and, less-intuitively, the availability of high-quality training datasets.
In our previous post we found a way to UXSS (bypass the SOP policy) using the htmlFile/ActiveXObject, however, I mentioned that there were other interesting things to do using that same object. Have you tried anything? If yes, congratulations.
One of the most overlooked features of BloodHound is the ability to enter raw Cypher queries directly into the user interface. Likely, a lot of that has to do with the fact that it’s not a very emphasized feature, not to mention it requires learning Cypher.
Google Cloud Platform gets a performance boost today with the much anticipated public beta of NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPUs. You can now spin up NVIDIA GPU-based VMs in three GCP regions: us-east1, asia-east1 and europe-west1, using the gcloud command-line tool. Support for creating GPU VMs using the Cloud Console appears next week.
Back in 2011 when Windows 7 Service Pack 1 was king of the hill and I was just starting to learn to program (via Harvard's epic CS50), j00ru published a whitepaper on various ways to access Windows kernel pointers from User Mode: Windows Security Hardening Through Kernel Address Protection.
If you're working with images on a computer, you're bound to eventually run into corrupted files that ruin your day. I run into this with animation renders (remember, the best practice here is to render to a sequence of image files and not a single video file).
This paper manages to be both tremendous fun and quite thought-provoking at the same time. If I tell you that the central cast contains Alice, Bob, and Eve, you can probably already guess that we’re going to be talking about cryptography (that or reading the paper title � ).
Securing machines from abuse and compromise in a corporate environment has always been an ongoing process. Providing admin rights to users has always been abused as users have ended up installing unapproved software, change configurations, etc.
A student from the Univesity of Bochum in Germany have published a very interesting thesis regarding the security of network printers. His work is a survey of weaknesses in the standards and various proprietary extensions of two popular printing languages: PostScript and PJL.
