Got a mail regarding patch reporting

A CIO at an industry here in Sweden dropped me a mail and told me how they received their reporting. On a monthly basis they get a list of possible patches to deploy, from that list they have to select what to patch and what to not patch. This raises a number of CHRs and […]

Cain and Able revisited

A few days ago I was sitting at a client with a colleague tasked with some simple pentesting to prove that our risk analysis was valid. We had already conducted social engineering to get into the buildings so our test now was to find a way into their Office365. As we had network access with […]

Ransomware Guard

I have started to device a set of security mechanism that will end up as a pattern in the month to come. However, I think you all are interested in the reasoning how to protect yourself? First of all, you need to start looking at access paths, how does the ransomware hit you. The access […]

Mars Challenge

I have to say that I really hate ransomware. It´s just like the old times when a henchman placed himself outside your store and blocked your customers from coming in but without the satisfaction of beating him with a bat to make him go away. A client of mine was targeted with a ransomware and […]

Vacation time is ATM time

I have skipped over to London for a few days of vacation and when taking a stroll late in the evening after having a few beers I became witness to the implementation of an ATM-scam. Within 30 seconds I saw two men attach a new front over an ATM and drive away. I waited until […]

It has been all over the news recently: It is possible to hack a plane in-flight! I have to say that this is a bold statement in the first place but the sources site a FBI document. I´m a bit reluctant to actually believe it in the first place. Gladly the staff at Wired clarified […]

Hacking my car

I tend to be a rather slow adopter when it comes to cars. I prefer environmentally friendly cars that are very safe for me to drive but aren´t that costly. Entering Volvo V70 Bifuel, it runs on biogas and has rolled over 300 000 km now. Having an older car means it also breaks down […]
