FIR (Fast Incident Response) is an cybersecurity incident management platform designed with agility and speed in mind. It allows for easy creation, tracking, and reporting of cybersecurity incidents. FIR is for anyone needing to track cybersecurity incidents (CSIRTs, CERTs, SOCs, etc.). It was tailored to suit our needs and our team’s habits, but we put a great deal of effort into making it as generic as possible before releasing it so that other teams around the world may also use it and customize it as they see fit. See the wiki for the user manual and more screenshots ! Installation There are two ways to install FIR. If you want to take it for a test-drive, just follow the instructions for setting up a development environment in the Wiki. If you like it and want to set it up for production, here’s how to do it . A dockerfile for running a dev-quality FIR setup is also available in docker/Dockerfile . Deploy to Heroku via fir/heroku_settings.py Community A dedicated users mailing list is available https://groups.google.com/d/forum/fir-users Technical specs FIR is written in Python (but you probably already knew that), using Django 1.9. It uses Bootstrap 3 and some Ajax and d3js to make it pretty. We use it with a MySQL back-end, but feel free to use any other DB adaptor you might want – as long as it’s compatible with Django, you shouldn’t run into any major issues. FIR is not greedy performance-wise. It will run smoothly on a Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machine with 1 core, a 40 GB disk and 1 GB RAM. Download FIR

We are excited to announce this major release of auditing tool Lynis . Several big changes have been made to core functions of Lynis. These changes are the next of simplification improvements we made. There is a risk of breaking your existing configuration. Lynis is an open source security auditing tool. Used by system administrators, security professionals, and auditors, to evaluate the security defenses of their Linux and UNIX-based systems. It runs on the host itself, so it performs more extensive security scans than vulnerability scanners. Supported operating systems The tool has almost no dependencies, therefore it runs on almost all Unix-based systems and versions, including: AIX FreeBSD HP-UX Linux Mac OS NetBSD OpenBSD Solaris and others It even runs on systems like the Raspberry Pi and several storage devices! Installation optional Lynis is light-weight and easy to use. Installation is optional: just copy it to a system, and use “./lynis audit system” to start the security scan. It is written in shell script and released as open source software ( GPL ). How it works Lynis performs hundreds of individual tests, to determine the security state of the system. The security scan itself consists of performing a set of steps, from initialization the program, up to the report. Steps Determine operating system Search for available tools and utilities Check for Lynis update Run tests from enabled plugins Run security tests per category Report status of security scan Besides the data displayed on the screen, all technical details about the scan are stored in a log file. Any findings (warnings, suggestions, data collection) are stored in a report file. Opportunistic Scanning Lynis scanning is opportunistic: it uses what it can find. For example, if it sees you are running Apache, it will perform an initial round of Apache related tests. When during the Apache scan it also discovers an SSL/TLS configuration, it will perform additional auditing steps on that. While doing that, it then will collect discovered certificates so they can be scanned later as well. In-depth security scans By performing opportunistic scanning, the tool can run with almost no dependencies. The more it finds, the deeper the audit will be. In other words, Lynis will always perform scans which are customized to your system. No audit will be the same! Use cases Since Lynis is flexible, it is used for several different purposes. Typical use cases for Lynis include: Security auditing Compliance testing (e.g. PCI, HIPAA, SOx) Vulnerability detection and scanning System hardening Resources used for testing Many other tools use the same data files for performing tests. Since Lynis is not limited to a few common Linux distributions, it uses tests from standards and many custom ones not found in any other tool. Best practices CIS NIST NSA OpenSCAP data Vendor guides and recommendations (e.g. Debian Gentoo, Red Hat) Lynis Plugins Plugins enable the tool to perform additional tests. They can be seen as an extension (or add-on) to Lynis, enhancing its functionality. One example is the compliance checking plugin, which performs specific tests only applicable to some standard. Changelog Upgrade note ## Lynis 2.7.3 (2019-03-21) ### Added – Detection for Lynis being scheduled (e.g. cronjob) ### Changed – HTTP-6624 – Improved logging for test – KRNL-5820 – Changed color for default fs.suid_dumpable value – LOGG-2154 – Adjusted test to search in configuration file correctly – NETW-3015 – Added support for ip binary – SQD-3610 – Description of test changed – SQD-3613 – Corrected description in code – SSH-7408 – Increased values for MaxAuthRetries – Improvements to allow tailored tool tips in future – Corrected detection of blkid binary – Minor textual changes and cleanups Download Lynis 2.7.2 *[ GPL ]: GNU Public License

Four people have been arrested for taking secret videos of guests at motels and live-streaming them to paying audiences. According to Seoul police, the perps filmed about 1,600 motel guests in the past year in various states of undress and having sex. They did so with tiny wireless spy cameras set up in 42 motel rooms at 30 motels across South Korea, in 10 cities. The devices were hidden inside TVs, hair dryer holsters and electrical outlets. The filming took place between last Nov. 24 and March 2, the authorities said, with the livestreamed feeds beamed out globally. The voyeur gang raked in $6,200 for the feeds from 97 paid users of an undisclosed website; in all, there were 803 illegally filmed videos. The suspects will face up to five years in jail and a penalty of about $26,000 for illegally distributing videos, and up to a year and almost $9,000 for distributing pornography. “The police agency strictly deals with criminals who post and share illegal videos as they severely harm human dignity,” said an official of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s cyber investigation unit, speaking to the Korea Herald. Secretly filming unwitting victims is not unheard of, unfortunately, but the motel angle is a new wrinkle. Last year, several Android apps were discovered with “alarming” privacy holes – enabling mobile apps to take and share screenshots and video of the phones’ app activity without users’ knowledge. Researchers from Northeastern University examined 17,260 apps from marketplaces Google Play, AppChina, Mi.com and Anzhi; while a large fraction of apps are not abusing this ability to record media on mobile phones, the researchers did discover a “few instances” of covert recording. The IoT space opens up more vectors for video spying as well. Researchers for instance last year uncovered vulnerabilities in Dongguan Diqee 360 vacuum cleaners, which have a webcam with night vision and smartphone-controlled navigation controls. The flaws would allow attackers to eavesdrop, perform video surveillance and steal private data from victims.
Hackers took down the Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge browsers on Thursday at Pawn2Own, the annual hacking conference held in tandem with CanSecWest, as the competition continued for a second day. The dynamic hacking duo of Amat Cama and Richard Zhu, which make up team Fluoroacetate, had another good day, following Wednesday’s successes. The two trained their skills first on Mozilla Firefox, leveraging a JIT bug in the browser, followed up by an out-of-bounds write exploit in the Windows kernel. The one-two punch allowed Fluoroacetate to take over the targeted system. “They were able to execute code at SYSTEM level just by using Firefox to visit their specially crafted website,” wrote Zero Day Initiative in a write-up of the day’s hacking results. For their efforts the two earned $50,000. The @fluoroacetate duo does it again. They used a type confusion in #Edge, a race condition in the kernel, then an out-of-bounds write in #VMware to go from a browser in a virtual client to executing code on the host OS. They earn $130K plus 13 Master of Pwn points. pic.twitter.com/mD13kozJLv — Zero Day Initiative (@thezdi) March 21, 2019 The story of the day continued to be Cama and Zhu, who earned an additional $130,000 for a “masterfully crafted exploit chain” that eventually lead to the owning the underlying hypervisor of a VMware Workstation, ZDI reported. That hack began on VMware Workstation where Fluoroacetate opened an Edge browser and visited a booby-trapped website that contained a confusion bug. Next, Cama and Zhu used a race condition in the Windows kernel followed by an out-of-bounds write in VMware workstation that linked to executing code on the underlying hypervisor. Arthur Gerkis of Exodus Intelligence Adding both day’s awards together, Fluoroacetate has so far earned $340,000 in the Pawn2Own competition this year. Mozilla’s Firefox browser went down a second time Thursday, thanks to hacker Niklas Baumstark. He was able to execute code at the system level of a PC by leveraging a JIT bug in Firefox. “In a real-world scenario, an attacker could use this to run their code on a target system at the level of the logged-on user,” ZDI wrote. The successful exploit earned Baumstark $40,000. A researcher named Arthur Gerkis, with Exodus Intelligence, was the final contestant and a newcomer to the Pwn2Own competition. His target was also Microsoft’s Edge browser. “[Gerkis] wasted no time by using a double free bug in the renderer followed by a logic bug to bypass the sandbox,” ZDI wrote. For his effort, the researcher earned $50,000. Day three of the competition closes out the Pawn2Own event with a automotive category.
