Why Your Firewall Will Kill You, (Tue, Mar 5th)

The last few years have been great for attackers exploiting basic web application vulnerabilities. Usually, home and small business products from companies like Linksys, D-Link, and Ubiquity are known to be favorite targets. But over the last couple of years, enterprise products from companies like Ivanti, Fortigate, Sonicwall, and Citrix (among others) have become easy to exploit targets. The high value of the networks protected by these "solutions" has made them favorites for ransomware attackers.


Scanning and abusing the QUIC protocol, (Wed, Mar 6th)

The QUIC protocol has slowly (pun intended) crawled into our browsers and many other protocols. Last week, at BSides Zagreb I presented some research I did about applications using (and abusing) this protocol, so it made sense to put this into one diary.


Living off the land with native SSH and split tunnelling

Lately I was involved in an assumed compromise project where stealth and simplicity was required, reducing the opportunity to use a sophisticated C2 infrastructure. We did note that the built-in Windows SSH client could make this simpler for us. [..] Windows native SSH can be a convenient attack path IF an organisation doesn-t have the ability to block and monitor the forwarded internal traffic. [..] The obvious route is to restrict access to the SSH command for all users who don-t have a business need, or to uninstall it from your default Windows build and use something like PuTTY instead.

Data Exfiltration: Increasing Number of Tools Leveraged by Ransomware Attackers

Ransomware actors are deploying a growing array of data-exfiltration tools in their attacks and, over the past three months alone, Symantec has found attackers using at least dozen different tools capable of data exfiltration. While some exfiltration tools are malware, the vast majority are dual-use - legitimate software used by the attackers for malicious purposes.


Badgerboard: A PLC backplane network visibility module

Analysis of the traffic between networked devices has always been of interest since devices could even communicate with one another. As the complexity of networks grew, the more useful dedicated traffic analysis tools became. Major advancements have been made over the years with tools like Snort or Wireshark, but these tools are only useful when accurate information is provided to them. By only sending a subset of the information being passed across a network to monitoring tools, analysts will be provided with an incomplete picture of the state of their network.

Cisco Security Advisories 2024-02-28

Security Impact Rating: 2x High, 5x Medium



VMware ESXi, Workstation, and Fusion contain a use-after-free vulnerability in the XHCI USB controller. VMware has evaluated the severity of this issue to be in the Critical severity range with a maximum CVSSv3 base score of 9.3 for Workstation/Fusion and in the Important severity range with a maximum CVSSv3 base score of 8.4 for ESXi. [..] A malicious actor with local administrative privileges on a virtual machine may exploit this issue to execute code as the virtual machine's VMX process running on the host. On ESXi, the exploitation is contained within the VMX sandbox whereas, on Workstation and Fusion, this may lead to code execution on the machine where Workstation or Fusion is installed.
