Imunity releases Silica, handheld "Pen" tester

16 08 2006

Wow, a portable penetration tester the size of a PDA. It does not have a price listed on their site yet, but the capabilities are nice.

From their site:

Immunity SILICA is a hand-held penetration testing product that leverages Immunity CANVAS to provide a unique testing tool for networks. Currently it supports 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth wireless connections or optionally Ethernet via USB. Its slim, PDA-like profile allows the penetration tester to perform testing while appearing to perform an innocuous behavior.

Example Use Cases:

  • Tell SILICA to scan every machine on every wireless network for file shares and download anything of interest to the SILICA device. Then just put it in your suit pocket and walk through your target’s office space.
  • Tell SILICA to actively penetrate any machines it can target (with any of Immunity CANVAS’s exploits) and have all successfully penetrated machines connect via HTTP/DNS to an external listening post running Immunity CANVAS Professional.
  • Mail SILICA to your target’s CEO, then let it turn on and hack anything it can as it’s sitting on their desk.
  • Have SILICA conduct MITM attacks against people on a wireless network.
  • They also just recently released a new verion of CANVAS Professional – “an automated exploitation system, and a comprehensive, reliable exploit development framework to penetration testers and security professionals worldwide.” They’re up to 6.12 at the time of this post.

    CANVAS Professional.

    It is so important to keep an eye on our kids…

    6 07 2006

    So I’m out playing with my 2 kids (ages 1 and 2) in the backyard of our house when sirens ripped up the road. We live in an old ranch-style home, on an acre, not in a subdivision. Our 2 lane county road really doesn’t see much traffic outside of construction gear, but today police and ambulances and helicopters gathered within earshot. The news chopper circle a dozen time over our house and I could see the station ID, so I pulled up their site while the kids ate dinner. Apparently a little boy in the subdivision across the street, a 5 year old, was attempting to cross the street from a neighbor’s house back to his own on an electric scooter and was ran over by a 16 year old driver. Just that fast… He was transported to the hospital in critical condition. I cleaned up the kids and we went back outside. We gathered together, the kids and I, hit our knees and prayed in the backyard for their family, for the child, for the driver of the car, for the police and medics. I thanked God for my wonderful family and that I will never have to bear that kind of pain. The news updated the story and the child died. I cannot imagine what that family is going through. My children just went to bed, and they can’t understand, but they got about 10x the hugs and kisses tonight while reading them a story. Our prayers are with the Bear family.

    Honda to Build “Zero Waste” Plant in Indiana

    My Man Mitch hard at work again! This is the coolest news I’ve heard lately! First we’re building the world’s largest biodiesel plant and now producing hybrid Hondas in Indiana! Honda plans to hire 2,000 workers to staff the new plant. (Maybe the new jobs will offset the loss of jobs by airline workers and Delphi workers – GM supplier of electronics) “Our goal is that this plant in Indiana will have the smallest environmental footprint of any Honda auto plant in North America.” They will probably build Civics and Fits there. I’ve wanted a Fit for awhile anyway… story (Houston)  , story (Indianapolis)  , story  ,  CBSNews story
