1. The Sneakiest Ethereum “Scam” (honeypot) Ever

I’ve recently saw a tweet about a sneaky scam where someone would leak a privatekey of an account that owns some token and needs gas to withdraw them. It had a smart contract that would transfer any eth send to its address to another contract. I thought it was pretty good and it reminded of another “scam” I’ve seen few months ago that in my opinion is even sneakier. The common point is that both of these scams are trying to get money from people who had bad intentions in the first place.

2. Next Steps in GDPR: What’s to Come in 2019?

When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018 for entities operating in the European Union or targeting its citizens, most people assumed things would change immediately.

3. How to Avoid Credit Card Skimming: 5 Tips to Keep Your Information Safe

Credit card skimming occurs when someone places an electronic device on or near a credit card reader. This device captures and stores your credit card details.

4. Reverse shell !?!

Whats a reverse shell? It’s that turtle that you jump on and it bounces off a wall and comes back at you right?

5. How the Nintendo Switch prevents downgrades by irreparably blowing its own fuses

Downgrade prevention has been a cat-and-mouse game between consumers and companies since the inception of remote updates. The Nintendo Switch adopts a worrisome-strategy of preventing firmware downgrades by permanently modifying your device every time it updates. While this isn’t a new concept (the Xbox 360 was doing it back in 2007), it is part of a greater effort to prevent end users from modifying their devices to their liking.

6. 5 Best Programming Languages to Learn for Cyber Security

Becoming successful as a cyber security expert requires diverse skills. An all-round professional can confidently implement and monitor security measures that guard computer systems against attacks and unauthorized access.

If you plan to use the information for illegal purposes, please leave this website now.

8. Why You Should Never Save Passwords on Chrome or Firefox

In this article I will demonstrate how easy it is for hackers to extract every username and password saved on your Chrome profile. One would think that Chrome would have safety measures to encrypt your password, but apparently that is not the case — sorta. My Chrome profile, like many others, is set up so that there is another encryption password that I have to enter in order to sync all my passwords, bookmarks, settings, browser history, and etc. so it was pretty shocking to me how easy it was for me to extract and decrypt my passwords. Twelve lines of code easy.

9. Formjacking: Hackers’ New Favorite Way to Steal Credit Card Information (And How to Avoid it)

You’ve added your favorite products to the shopping cart. Now, it’s time to take your credit card out of your wallet and make the payment. As the site is secure and you have already done shopping on this e-commerce website in the past, you don’t think much before entering your credit/debit card details during the checkout.

10. Your Digital Photos Can Reveal Information About You

There is a saying that a “picture is worth a thousand words.” It was supposed to mean that an image can tell a story about the subject or about the picture. Our photos bring back memories that in itself tells us a lot about what we are viewing. In the age of digital photography that is so true because an image taken with a digital camera records information about the image as well. The problem is that the information is not only viewable to the user, but to everyone else as well. It may seem harmless at first, but so much information can be revealed by a photo once it is uploaded on the Internet to photo sharing websites, social media apps and blogs.

11. Forcing a device to disconnect from WiFi using a deauthentication attack

12. Mine for Bitcoin with ANY Computer

Mining is a great way to enter the cryptocurrency ecosystem. However, Bitcoin/Litecoin is almost impossible to mine for the average user. It requires expensive equipment called ASICs that are made by a controversial, centralized company called Bitmain. These ASIC chips consume high amounts of electricity, and ASIC mining farms often use cheap & ecologically-destructive coal power. These centralized mining cartels mint the vast majority of new Bitcoin, and are responsible for contentious forks of Bitcoin in order to maintain a monopoly of the network.

14. How to Hack Facebook Messenger: 6 Methods and Vulnerabilities

Spyier, keylogging, and hacking using cookies are some of the most common ways Facebook Messenger accounts get hacked.

15. A hacker intercepted your WiFi traffic, stole your contacts, passwords, & financial data.

As the holiday season was in full swing, a hacker sporting a hoodie, sitting in a car with antennae on the dashboard and a computer on his lap, sat in a parking lot outside a popular cafe chain. Passersby, busied and high on holiday cheer, buzzed in and out and sometimes even stayed for a while.

16. McDonalds India is leaking 2.2 million users data

The McDonald’s India app, McDelivery is leaking personal data for more than 2.2 million of its users which includes name, email address, phone number, home address, accurate home co-ordinates and social profile links. We contacted McDelivery on 7th Feb and received an acknowledgement from a Senior IT Manager on 13th Feb (33 days ago). The issue has not been fixed yet and our continued effort to get an update for the fix after the initial acknowledgement has failed.

17. Why we need RISC-V

The RISC-V (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) processor is a chip that is still in it’s infancy, but it’s a chip that everyone should be supporting. You might be wondering, what makes this chip so great?

18. 5 Best Free Proxy Servers To Visit Sites Anonymously In 2020

21. Reverse Engineering The Medium App (and making all stories in it free)

Last week I realized it’s been a year since my last post here. I enjoy writing my stories as much as I enjoy reading others’, but only if I consider them interesting enough, and that’s a high bar honestly. I’ve been into reverse engineering Android apps recently, so I tried to think of a project that could involve that field, along with being interesting to the readers on Medium.

22. LeakLooker: Find Open Databases in Seconds

23. Writing a Basic Keylogger for macOS in Python

⚠️This post is for educational purposes only⚠️

24. afl-unicorn: Fuzzing Arbitrary Binary Code

American Fuzzy Lop (AFL) is awesome. It’s easily the best thing out there for quickly doing cutting-edge fuzzing analysis on command line applications. But what about the situations where accessing the stuff you want to fuzz via command line isn’t so simple? Lots of times you can write a test harness (or maybe use libFuzzer instead), but what if you could just emulate the parts of the code that you want to fuzz and still get all the coverage-based advantages of AFL? For example, maybe you want to fuzz a parsing function from an embedded system that receives input via RF and isn’t easily debugged. Maybe the code you’re interested in is buried deep within a complex, slow program that you can’t easily fuzz through any traditional tools.

25. Understanding the Deep & Dark Web

The misinterpretation of terms such as the Darknet, Dark Web, and Deep Web has always been prevalent. In the cybersecurity world, these terms have come to light with the exposure of techniques used by cybercriminals to communicate, collaborate, and participate in malicious activities. This report aims to help in understanding these terms and shed light on relevant topics within them.

26. Deep Web & Dark Web Explained..!!!

There are three types of WWW:

27. AI: Scary for the Right Reasons

Artificial intelligence, AI, has grabbed headlines, hype, and even consternation at the beast we are unleashing. Every powerful technology can be used for good and bad, be it nuclear or biotechnology, and the same is true for AI. While much of the public discourse from the likes of Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking reflects on sci-fi like dystopian visions of overlord AI’s gone wrong (a scenario certainly worth discussing), there is a much more immediate threat when it comes to AI. Long before AI goes uncontrollable or takes over jobs, there lurks a much larger danger: AI in the hands of governments and/or bad actors used to push self-interested agendas against the greater good.

28. How does Tor really work?

I read the whitepaper so you don’t have to.

29. 5G Networks Can Change The Way We Live: For Better or Worse?

The advances in wireless communications has led to an exponential growth in mobile devices i.e. smartphones. The deployment of 4G and LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks has delivered us more rich content, from video streaming to live gaming. It is taking its toll on bandwidth, which now needs to be addressed as demand grows. This time around a new class of applications that are bandwidth intensive like VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality) and OTT will require it. The telecom industry have specified a new standard called 5G to meet the growth of network demands. High speed data communications made possible by more bandwidth sounds like an excellent business proposition for wireless carriers to expand their networks, appease users and gain more subscribers while generating more revenues.

30. How to Hack Your Alexa using a Voice Command-SQL Injection

Based on your previous coverage of similar topics, we thought you may be interested in this recently discovered voice activation device hack, and a new technique we call Voice-Command SQL Injection.

31. afl-unicorn: Part 2 — Fuzzing the ‘Unfuzzable’

Unicorn Mode as demonstrated in my previous article is not overly useful on the surface. It has lots of limitations that make it clumsy and slow to employ against most real-world situations. For example, what if the binary you want to emulate calls an imported library function that is likely to call into the kernel such as malloc() or printf()? What if the code you want to fuzz is highly stateful, and requires lots of memory regions (heap allocations, stack pointers, global variables, etc.) that aren’t known until run-time? In fact, just about the only straightforward use of it that I’ve found is when working with flat embedded run-time system memory snapshots recovered from firmware by a debugger.

32. What is the difference between Information Security and Information Technology?

There’s a strong relationship between Information Security and Information Technology. Both may sound similar, but they are in fact separate functions.

33. Wifi Cracking

Hacking into Networks has a long history. Ever since the advent of the wireless networking, and obvious challenge is securing pieces of data over this non visible network. There have been various attempts at securing this phenom. These security attempts come in a few flavors called:

34. Simple Image Steganography in Python

In this post I’ll demonstrate how to achieve simple image steganography using Python. All digital file formats use internal structures and schemas, therefore unique implementations are required for different mediums, and often for different formats within those mediums.

35. IoT without Internet… how does it affect its functionality?

The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of devices such as vehicles, and home appliances that contain electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which allows these things to connect, interact and exchange data. (Thank you for that definition, Wikipedia!)

36. SMS Spoofing Used to Swindle Retailers & Merchants

Websites that allow an individual to send a text message to any number are being used by fraudsters to send fake transaction messages impersonating a legitimate bank. The ability of these websites to modify the sender name of the SMS, i.e. to spoof any genuine entity, is what the fraudsters exploit for their benefits and typically form part of a larger scam chain. Numerous cases have been brought to the authorities regarding such SMS spoofing websites, which have called for legal proceedings against such service providers. These kinds of websites have continued to thrive exponentially. The victims of such scams are typically retailers who deal with high-end electronic equipment, jewelry, branded merchandise etc. A fraudster may initiate the scam by visiting a store and proceeding to select multiple items. The aim is to select items that amount to a large sum, thereby creating a situation wherein the fraudster pretends to have insufficient cash in hand to complete the purchase. The fraudster then requests for the bank details of the outlet so he can perform the bank transfer immediately. Once the bank details are in his possession, the fraudster accesses a SMS spoofing website, using it to send a message to the merchant’s mobile number which he had attained prior to the attack. This text message utilizes the victim’s bank name as the SMS sender, stating that his/her account has been accredited with a total sum owed for the items bought. The message would consist of the outlet’s account number (hashed till the last 4 digits), amount transferred and date of transaction. The structure of the message is intended to dupe the SMS recipient by prompting them to complete the purchase and handing over the merchandise. New elaborate schemes have been identified recently that show the SMS containing a landline number pretending to be the bank which is, in fact controlled by the fraudsters. A few moments after the SMS is received, a fake call is made to the SMS recipient pretending to verify the transaction and suggesting that the purpose of the call is to verify and check for any fraudulent activity. These messages may also have URL links which could be malicious. Further investigation has revealed that the recipient mobile number and bank details collected from the victim are used in other scams as well. A more prevalent scam involves a call placed from a fake landline, pretending to be from the bank asking to verify the victim’s information so that his/her records are up to date.

37. 6 Cybersecurity Tools You’ll Need to Know About in 2019

It doesn’t take such a deep dive into 2018’s most important tech trends to understand how vital cybersecurity will be in the coming year.

40. The Difference Between Risk Assessment & Risk Analysis

The more you delve deeper into information compliance, the more likely you are to begin humming the term risk in a manner that is akin to how Jan Brady would shout, Marcia! Marcia! MARCIA!” You may have heard of this term a lot, to the point that it almost loses meaning. Nonetheless, you should know that the difference between risk analysis and risk assessment could be the difference between security control and data breach.

41. Myths and Legends of SPF

SPF is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email. Email domains use this protocol to specify which Internet hosts are authorized to use this domain in the SMTP HELO and MAIL FROM commands. You do not have to use any additional software to publish the SPF policy and therefore this procedure is extremely simple: Simply add a TXT record containing the policy to the DNS zone. An example of this type of entry is given at the end of this article. There are numerous manuals and even online constructors for working with SPF.

48. Ditch your SSH keys and enable AWS SSM!

If you manage AWS for an organization, big or small, chances are you have several Secure Shell (SSH) keys laying around you hardly use, OR WORSE, you don’t recall the account the key was made for. SSH key management is a rabbit hole in itself and most people understand the security concerns that arise with improper SSH key hygiene. Luckily for us, there is a way to bid farewell to the the cumbersome practice of using SSH to remote into an EC2 instance. Allow me to introduce you the AWS service, Systems Manager (SSM).

49. How to Protect Your Netflix Account from Getting Hacked

Netflix accounts getting hacked are the least bit of anyone’s concern. Not because it doesn’t mean anything to us, but we anticipate little harm from it. After all, what more can a hacker do than to watch a few titles, get to see their favorite shows or movies? But that’s not always the case. We have left this issue unsupervised for far too long, and there is harm more significant than we give credit for.

50. Cyber Security Trends and Threats to Watch for in 2018

It’s 2017, and ATMs around the world are still running Windows XP embedded, long after Microsoft ceased support with security and stability patches. See these more recent articles that other people have written for more information:

53. How I hacked modern Vending Machines

Indisputably, Vending Machines are objects of cult. Delicious morsels of Hackers, always. In the beginning they worked offline with coins only, then, NFC- keys/cards models started spreading. If I say “COGES” I’m sure that better times will come to someone’s mind. But… In a bunch of years things changed radically. You distract and a moment after, find the world superseded by things connected to the internet…

54. A Guide to Password Hashing: How to Keep your Database Safe

Hashing algorithms are one-way functions. They take any string and turn it into a fixed-length “fingerprint” that is unable to be reversed. This means that if your data in your database is compromised, the hacker cannot get the user’s passwords if they were hashed well because at no point were they ever stored on the drive without being in their hashed form.

80. Cryptography + Malware = Ransomware

When you combine cryptography with malware, you get a very dangerous mix of problems. This is a type of computer virus that goes by another name, “ransomware”. This type of virus is part of a field of study called “cryptovirology”. Through the use of techniques called phishing, a threat actor sends the ransomware file to an unknowing victim. If the file is opened it will execute the virus payload, which is malicious code. The ransomware runs the code that encrypts user data on the infected computer or host. The data are user files like documents, spreadsheets, photos, multimedia files and even confidential records. The ransomware targets your personal computer files and applies an encryption algorithm like RSA which makes the file unaccessible. The only way to access them is if the user pays a ransom to the threat actor by following instructions which appear encoded into the encrypted files. Thus it is called ransomware, because a form of payment is demanded in order to fix the problem.
