Originally posted at: http://tech.nocr.at/hacking-security/nmap-127-0-0-1-flash-style A design flaw found in ActionScript (Flash) has been allowed the scanning hosts via trial and error. Whenever a port is queried by Flash that isn’t open, it responds with a “SecurityErrotEvent” instantly. But, when a port is open, it doesn’t get that response for an extended period of time, while it waits for a reply to “policy-file-request”. PoC can be viewed at the below address. Now the question is: What ELSE can you do with this information once you have this ability.

In there own words: A new addition to the Secunia Software Inspector series, the free Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI), is now available for BETA testing.
Alright, this is just a quick update. The torrent is still up and functional. Also, I just had to post this. It has a weak but feasible link to tech. http://www.votemoojj.com/stuff/shoes/index.html
A couple people have asked for links on where I got this portable app or that, well, all over really. Here are a few links to get you started: http://www.dirk-loss.de/win-tools.htm http://www.tinyapps.org/ http://www.portablefreeware.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_portable_applications http://standalone.atspace.org/ http://portableapps.com/apps http://www.kikizas.net/en/usbapps.html Also, I gave some of the apps their portability myself. It’s a easy process. Drag and drop an installer file “setup.exe” or “whatever.msi” into Universal Extractor. What you are going to get is a folder right where that installer is, with the same name as the installer.
I don’t use Wine. It’s difficult to get anything working and a pain once it is. However since I found out about the Wine-Doors project, it’s made me go back on that thought. It’s a fairly new project, but well on it’s way to being an enabler for a great many users. A great many users have been looking for that one last thing, to get them over the hump of still using Windows.
Yup, it’s finally here. Download it here! RIGHT CLICK AND SAVE AS So now that is done, I get to talk about other things that I am getting into: Wubi “Linux” Installer: http://wubi-installer.org/ This is actually pretty amazing. What it does is automagically downloads an ISO (takes a while), makes a virtual disk, puts entries in the Windows boot loader and tells you to restart. When you restart it boots to the virutal disk and installs the version of Ubuntu you chose.
Of course I am a little late, but litterally the ULTIMATE guide to wrt54g hacking is shipping: http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WRT54G-Ultimate-Hacking-Asadoorian/dp/1597491667 Also, you can check out Paul Asadoorian and Larry Pesce at http://www.pauldotcom.com You can also download the PDF version of the book at: http://www.syngress.com/catalog/?pid=4170 CONGRATS GUYS… now where is my free copy? mubix
