FD: Wireshark Plugin for Mariposa Botnet

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Yamata Li from the Palo Alto Networks threat research team has developed a plugin for wireshark that allows you to view the obfuscated traffic generated by a Mariposa (Botnet) infected client.
This info was published on Full Disclosure today. The website mariposa-tool shows the detailed usage of this tool.

A post in Full Disclosure reminded me of Nikto,
a security tool for webservices. Based on libwhisker it tests a whole lot of possible bugs
in a webserver/application. Works nice .. just wondering why it says runs on Microsoft IIS 5/0 ..?

50.000 complaints

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Whow.. I finally crossed the 50.000 complaints line. I got about 18.600 replies to
my complaints; either being autoreplies by abuse departments, activity statements of the
providers or “over quota” or similar bounce messages from abuse-mailboxes.
I hope that this service does something good.
