Dissecting the SotM Attack Trace Pcap

Hi everybody,

our first Scan of the Month Challenge in 2010 is over! We received 91 submissions in total, and some parts of the solutions are so interesting that I would like to publicly highlight them in this post. Now that the winners are announced (Congratulations Ivan, Franck, and Tareq!), I think I also owe you an explanation why we asked the specific questions and what we expected as answers. I am sure you will be surprised how many pieces of information you can dig up in a plain pcap - I was indeed when I had a look at the solutions we received. Enjoy!

Forensic Challenge 2010/2 - "browsers under attack" is now online

Submission deadline is March 1st and results will be released on Monday, March 15th 2010. Small prizes will be awarded to the top three submissions.

Glastopf Project: A Look Ahead

Glastopf:
On January the 22nd I met Sven. Sven is a bachelor student at the Bern university of applied sciences and will write his thesis about Glastopf. During his work he will rewrite the current Glastopf unstable version, but when he will be finished the new version will have at least the same features like the previous version. The goals are: A much better modular structure, this means there is one core which directs every request to the modules. They store the data, emulating the vulnerability and compose the response which the core gives back to the attacker. There will be a much better classification of incoming attacks and the rules used for this will be totally detached from the source code to distribute them easily between different sensors. I will post some details as soon as we started the work. This also means that we will freeze the current unstable version to put all effort into the new version.
