Tools: Static Code Analysis for Smali

Dynamic program analysis will give you a pretty good overview of your applications activities and general behaviour. However sometimes you'll want to just analyze your application without running it. You'll want to have a look at its components, analyze how they interact and how data is tainted from one point to another. This is was the major factor driving the development of smalisca. There are indeed some good reasons for a static code analysis before the dynamic one. Before interacting with the application I like to know how the application has been build, if there is any API and generate all sort of call flow graphs. In fact graphs have been very important to me since they visualize things. Instead of jumping from file to file, from class to class, I just look at the graphs.
While graph building has been an important reason for me to code such a tool, smalisca has some other neat features you should read about.

Tools: CrackMapExec - pentesting Windows/Active Directory tool

CrackMapExec is your one-stop-shop for pentesting Windows/Active Directory environments!
From enumerating logged on users and spidering SMB shares to executing psexec style attacks and auto-injecting Mimikatz into memory using Powershell!
The biggest improvements over the above tools are:
  • Pure Python script, no external tools required
  • Fully concurrent threading
  • Uses ONLY native WinAPI calls for discovering sessions, users, dumping SAM hashes etc...
  • Opsec safe (no binaries are uploaded to dump clear-text credentials)
Requires the impacket, gevent and netaddr Python libraries


Tools: BinNavi - binary analysis IDE

BinNavi is a binary analysis IDE - an environment that allows users to inspect, navigate, edit, and annotate control-flow-graphs of disassembled code, do the same for the callgraph of the executable, collect and combine execution traces, and generally keep track of analysis results among a group of analysts.

Tools: Whonix - Anonymous OS

Whonix is an operating system focused on anonymity, privacy and security. It's based on the Tor anonymity network[1], Debian GNU/Linux[2] and security by isolation. DNS leaks are impossible, and not even malware with root privileges can find out the user's real IP.
Whonix consists of two parts: One solely runs Tor and acts as a gateway, which we call Whonix-Gateway. The other, which we call Whonix-Workstation, is on a completely isolated network. Only connections through Tor are possible.

Howto: Setup MiTM lab on wifi network By Hackers Online Club


Setting up a SNIFFLAB
Scripts to create your own MITM'ing, packet sniffing WiFi access point.

Firewall rules on DD-WRT router to send traffic to MITM proxy box

Make sure the network interface (vlan1 here) is correct.

iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j ACCEPT -p tcp -m multiport --dports 80,443 -s $PROXYIP
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j MARK --set-mark 3 -p tcp -m multiport --dports 80,443
ip rule add fwmark 3 table 2
ip route add default via $PROXYIP dev vlan1 table 2

PCAP machine scripts


auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet manual
iface eth1 inet manual
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet dhcp
bond-mode 3
bond-miimon 100
slaves eth0 eth1

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


Getting the network running correctly on boot


# Provides:
# Short-Description: Ensure WiFi as well as Ethernet interfaces are up
# Description:
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog

sudo ifplugd eth0 --kill
sudo ifup wlan0

sudo ifconfig eth1 promisc
sudo ifconfig eth0 promisc
exit 0

Start capturing packets on startup -- create a sniffer service
