* – NETGEAR Default Password List
* – Linksys Default Password List
* – D-Link Default Password List
* – Cisco Default Password List
* – Default Router Usernames and Passwords (multiple vendors)
* – Telnet, MySQL and other Linux and Windows service passwords courtesy of n0tazombie.

Always available CTF Labs

OWASP just released a new version of their OSINT Tool “Amass”

The OWASP Foundation recently released a new version of their OSINT tool named Amass. It has great features that make it really good for pentesters and red teamers alike. It will automatically gather OSINT from DNS, search engines, web archives, APIs such as Shodan, Twitter and PasteBin.

What’s interesting about the implant that the complex exploit chains installs is that is very unsophisticated and uses clear text protocols for data exfiltration.
