* – Telnet, MySQL and other Linux and Windows service passwords courtesy of n0tazombie.

Tsunami: Google publishes a modular security scanning framework

The folks over at Google have recently open sourced a modular security scanning framework called Tsunami. Right now it uses nmap and ncrack as it’s core underlying tools, but they built it in a modular fashion that makes integrating other tools easier and they also are focused on having no false positives which tends to be the Achilles’ heel of most vulnerability scanners.


SIGRed: A 17 year old bug in Windows DNS server

SIGRed (CVE-2020-1350) was recently discovered by Checkpoint Security and is a vulnerability in Windows Domain Server (DNS) which will allow for anonymous remote code execution (RCE) by sending a malformed DNS response and will allow an attacker to run as SYSTEM. This has been in the Windows DNS Server since Windows Server 2003 and affects even Windows Server 2019 and could easily be turned into a self replicating worm. This has a CVSS score of 10.0 on a 10 point scale, which is the highest rating on the scale. A patch is now available from Microsoft.
