The Wrong End of the Horse

For years, security people have been trying to show businesses how to be secure. It is still not working. What they haven't realized is they are talking to the wrong end of the horse.

Teach Security to the user at home. Show them how to secure their home computer so that they can do their business on it, preferably for free. Teach it to their kids in school. Start now. Then show them the exact same tools and techniques and rules and safe practices at work. It won't be something new… Continue

Carving malware from live memory


After spending some time in our laboratory, experimenting with some ruby scripts for the metasploit framework, I conducted a small experiment. I was wondering what if I could carve files out of

memory-dump files ?! It could be possible to carve out portable

executables/malware as well. This write-up demonstrates what I did.

How to get malware

E-Mail Chainletters & Hoaxes

This post has been published previously on

Today I had a funny one at my work.

for some reason, people still keep falling for e-mail chainletters and hoaxes. The question just asks itself: why?

What is Avast OFF?

After a 4 part investigation / introduction “I was working on tutorials” to bypassing anti-virus, an update to the target product slapped me in the face, halting the mechanisms I had used for circumvention, I needed to find a solution that would allow me to continue with my deployment of meterpreter and Avast_OFF is what I came up with.

I was looking for some-way, any-way to bypass the product in question just to see how easy it was with today's tools, I had seen AutoIT… Continue

Hello to you all

hello ALL and welcome to my one and only blog, I decided to blog on this site and this site alone so if your interested in what I do you will need to locate me here. Not all that I undertake is release to the public, but I decided a blog related to security is a natural choice for “unknowns” looking to find a path into the computing security industry.

Embracing the fear of the future.

As I start this New Year I of course have to take a look back at 2009 and consider what has happened. The funny thing is, as soon as I started reflecting on the last year, my mind wandered even further back. I thought back to when I was homeless, facing the choice of quitting high school to help support my family and then all the time I have spent since working in security and with Law enforcement. It hits me how fear has played such an important part of my success. Also how old fears are… Continue

From Laura Colantoni (Syngress)

Follow up-

Hey…thanks for the support! For those of you wondering about the feeds you see on various sites here’s the scoop. We are no longer selling Dissecting the Hack. We started destroying copies on Monday and our sales folks have made all our partners aware of this situation. But to formally pull it down we need to attach all records to the new book’s ISBN. Then we have to substitute it, link it and push all the feeds back out to vendors. You’ll see that our site,… Continue

From The ashes!

I have been humbled by the support I have received from the INFOSEC community. I wrote this book to give back to the community not knowing what the community would give back in turn.

This does not make things better I have to have my actions live up to my words. With the help of so many in INFOSEC that will happen.This book was to engage the NON-INFOSEC community to learn more about us to see who we really are & what it is all about. But this has Shown me more than any book I… Continue

Dissecting the Hack Statement


From Laura Colantoni (Syngress)

The team at Syngress recently found out through our Twitter feed that Dissecting the Hack might have plagiarized material. The twitter feeds led us to a popular blog where we found listed at least 125 instances of plagiarism-mostly from Wikipedia.

After talking to all involved we have determined the following:

* The book's technical editor is the source of this plagiarism. He greatly overstepped his role.

* He… Continue
