I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “Sextortion to The Next Level“: For a long time, our mailboxes are flooded with emails from “hackers” (note the quotes) who pretend to have infected our computers with malware. The scenario is always the same: They successfully collected sensitive pieces of evidence about
My training submission has been accepted at the BruCON Spring Training session in April 2019. This training is intended for Blue Team members and system/security engineers who would like to take advantage of the OSSEC integration capabilities with other tools and increase the visibility of their infrastructure behaviour. OSSEC is sometimes described as
I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “Querying DShield from Cortex”: Cortex is a tool part of the TheHive project. As stated on the website, it is a “Powerful Observable Analysis Engine”. Cortex can analyze observables like IP addresses, emails, hashes, filenames against a huge (and growing) list of online services.
I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Tracking Newly Registered Domains“: Here is the next step in my series of diaries related to domain names. After tracking suspicious domains with a dashboard and proactively searching for malicious domains, let’s focus on newly registered domains. They are a huge number of
I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Proactive Malicious Domain Search“: In a previous diary, I presented a dashboard that I’m using to keep track of the DNS traffic on my networks. Tracking malicious domains is useful but what if you could, in a certain way, “predict” the upcoming domains
Based on my previous ISC SANS Diary, I updated the STIX feed to answer the requests made by some readers. The feed is now available in two formats: STIX 1.2 (XML) (link) STIX 2.0 (JSON) (link) There are updated every 2 hours. Enjoy!
I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Retro Hunting!“. For a while, one of the security trends is to integrate information from 3rd-party feeds to improve the detection of suspicious activities. By collecting indicators of compromize, other tools may correlate them with their own data and generate alerts on specific conditions.
I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Many Malware Samples Found on Pastebin“. pastebin.com is a wonderful website. I’m scrapping all posted pasties (not only from pastebin.com) and pass them to a bunch of regular expressions. As I said in a previous diary, it is a good way to perform
During the last edition of the Troopers security conference in March, I attended a talk about “JustMetaData”. It’s a tool developed by Chris Truncer to perform open source intelligence against IP addresses. Since then, I used this tool on a regular basis. Often when you’re using a tool, you have ideas to improve
