HOWTO : PTF on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

The PenTesters Framework (PTF) is a Python script designed for Debian/Ubuntu based distributions to create a similar and familiar distribution for Penetration Testing. As pentesters, we've been accustom to the /pentest/ directories or our own toolsets that we want to keep up-to-date all of the time. We have those "go to" tools that we use on a regular basis, and using the latest and greatest is important.

PTF attempts to install all of your penetration testing tools (latest and greatest), compile them, build them, and make it so that you can install/update your distribution on any machine. Everything is organized in a fashion that is cohesive to the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and eliminates a lot of things that are hardly used. PTF simplifies installation and packaging and creates an entire pentest framework for you. Since this is a framework, you can configure and add as you see fit. We commonly see internally developed repos that you can use as well as part of this framework. It's all up to you.

The ultimate goal is for community support on this project. We want new tools added to the github repository. Submit your modules. It's super simple to configure and add them and only takes a few minute.


Install


sudo apt-get install git

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/trustedsec/ptf.git
cd ptf
sudo ./ptf


If you want to install and/or update everything :

use modules/install_update_all
run



All the modules (pentesting tools) are installed at /pentest directory. Please note that WINE and i386 dependencies will be installed accordingly.


Update/Upgrade

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

PTF will try to update itself on every start up. Meanwhile, you can run PTF at any directory after the first run.

If you want to update everything :

sudo ptf
use modules/install_update_all
run

Catch Me If You Can 3

Last year, I was talking about how to use NightHawk to do malicious things. The full article is here. Two years ago, I also talked about using pre-paid SIM card to do malicious things and the full article is here. However, you think that it would be a chance to be caught as TOR network exit nodes may be monitoring by law enforcements. Meanwhile, identity registration may be needed to purchase SIM card in your country. Okay, today I will introduce another method that you can use wired network to do malicious things untraceable.

In my country, there are many "Internet Cafe" which have a pool of computer systems that running Windows system to provide network gaming or internet services to their customers with a cheap price per hour. Those computer systems will be equipped "Reborn Card" which can reset to its default setting on every reboot. Normally, the "Internet Cafe" will reboot their computer systems every day.

You can hire a computer system in the "Internet Cafe", reboot it. Plug in your Kali Linux or BackBox Linux Live USB (or your custom made pentesting Linux Live USB). Personally, I will recommend BackBox as it will have some outstanding features, such as memory wiper.

After your malicious tasks, you can reboot your computer system and it will reset to its default setting. Normally, no data or activiities will be logged in the computer system.

When law enforcements trace your IP address which will direct them to the "Internet Cafe", they cannot obtain any evidence from the computer pool as those systems are reborned!

Finally, beware that CCTV will be installed in the "Internet Cafe" or nearby shops which will capture your present. You may need to do some "make up" when necessary.

That's all! See you.

HOWTO : Arachni on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Arachni is a feature-full, modular, high-performance Ruby framework aimed towards helping penetration testers and administrators evaluate the security of web applications.

It is smart, it trains itself by monitoring and learning from the web application's behavior during the scan process and is able to perform meta-analysis using a number of factors in order to correctly assess the trustworthiness of results and intelligently identify (or avoid) false-positives.

Unlike other scanners, it takes into account the dynamic nature of web applications, can detect changes caused while travelling through the paths of a web application’s cyclomatic complexity and is able to adjust itself accordingly. This way, attack/input vectors that would otherwise be undetectable by non-humans can be handled seamlessly.

Moreover, due to its integrated browser environment, it can also audit and inspect client-side code, as well as support highly complicated web applications which make heavy use of technologies such as JavaScript, HTML5, DOM manipulation and AJAX.

Finally, it is versatile enough to cover a great deal of use cases, ranging from a simple command line scanner utility, to a global high performance grid of scanners, to a Ruby library allowing for scripted audits, to a multi-user multi-scan web collaboration platform.


Install

cd ~
cd arsenal
wget https://github.com/Arachni/arachni/releases/download/v1.2.1/arachni-1.2.1-0.5.7.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

HOWTO : BeEF on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

BeEF is short for The Browser Exploitation Framework. It is a penetration testing tool that focuses on the web browser.

Amid growing concerns about web-borne attacks against clients, including mobile clients, BeEF allows the professional penetration tester to assess the actual security posture of a target environment by using client-side attack vectors. Unlike other security frameworks, BeEF looks past the hardened network perimeter and client system, and examines exploitability within the context of the one open door: the web browser. BeEF will hook one or more web browsers and use them as beachheads for launching directed command modules and further attacks against the system from within the browser context.

HOWTO : NMap on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is an open source tool for network exploration and security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. While Nmap is commonly used for security audits, many systems and network administrators find it useful for routine tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime.

HOWTO : Masscan on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Masscan is the fastest Internet port scanner. It can scan the entire Internet in under 6 minutes, transmitting 10 million packets per second.

It produces results similar to nmap, the most famous port scanner. Internally, it operates more like scanrand, unicornscan, and ZMap, using asynchronous transmission. The major difference is that it's faster than these other scanners. In addition, it's more flexible, allowing arbitrary address ranges and port ranges.

NOTE: masscan uses a custom TCP/IP stack. Anything other than simple port scans will cause conflict with the local TCP/IP stack. This means you need to either use the -S option to use a separate IP address, or configure your operating system to firewall the ports that masscan uses.


Install

To install Masscan on Ubuntu 14.04.03 LTS Desktop :

sudo apt-get install git build-essential libpcap-dev

HOWTO : Recon-ng on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Recon-ng is a full-featured Web Reconnaissance framework written in Python. Complete with independent modules, database interaction, built in convenience functions, interactive help, and command completion, Recon-ng provides a powerful environment in which open source web-based reconnaissance can be conducted quickly and thoroughly.

Recon-ng has a look and feel similar to the Metasploit Framework, reducing the learning curve for leveraging the framework. However, it is quite different. Recon-ng is not intended to compete with existing frameworks, as it is designed exclusively for web-based open source reconnaissance. If you want to exploit, use the Metasploit Framework. If you want to social engineer, use the Social-Engineer Toolkit. If you want to conduct reconnaissance, use Recon-ng!


Install

To install Recon-ng on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS Desktop :

sudo apt-get install git python-pip python-dnspython python-mechanize python-slowaes python-xlsxwriter python-jsonrpclib python-lxml

REVIEW : First Impression on Kali Linux 2.0

*** Please note that all the tests are testing on Linux host (Ubuntu 14.04.3), Windows host may have some different results. ***

*** Updated on August 14, 2015 : VirtualBox 5.0.2 for Linux fixed the slow speed (VMM: fixed an issue causing artifically high load averages on Linux hosts). ***

Kali Linux 2.0 is released on today (August 11, 2014 EST). I downloaded 64-bit full version and installed it on VirtualBox 5.0. The host computer has Intel Celeron(R) CPU N2930 @ 1.83GHz × 4 and 8 GB RAM. I assigned 5 GB RAM to Kali Linux 2.0. It is quite slow for it to run with 5GB RAM on my VirtualBox 5.0. Meanwhile, the sound always mute on every start up even you have set it before.





(A) Installation

When installing via non-graphic interface, you may encounter no network mirror repos, you need to bypass it by selecting "Continue without a network mirror? Yes" and we will edit the /etc/apt/sources.list later. Graphic interface may also has the same problem too.

After the installation is completed, we can edit the /etc/apt/sources.list if you encountered no mirror repos when install.

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

The content of the file should be looking like this :

deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free


(B) Install VirtualBox 5.0 Guest Additions CD

When you are going to install VirtualBox 5.0 Guest Additions CD, you need to install dkms first :

apt-get install dkms

* It will also install related headers files. If not, you need to install the headers files yourself.

When install VirtualBox Guest Additions CD, you may encounter the following error :

*** Error in `systemctl': double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x00007fc0cb648ae0 ***

It should be systemctl error. I do not know what it will be affected so far. After checking the dmesg message, the error is due to :

systemd[1]: Cannot add dependency job for unit vboxadd-service.service, ignoring: Unit vboxadd-service.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

It is recommended to uninstall the Guest Additions CD at the moment and some features will be not available on the guest virtual machine.

(C) Uninstall VirtualBox 5.0 Guest Additions CD

To uninstall VirtualBox Guest Additions, run :

/opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-5.0.0/uninstall.sh

This error will show again :

*** Error in `systemctl': double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x00007f124e3f2ae0 ***

(D) Not working properly applications

The following applications are launched from the Quick Menu on the left hand side of the screen.

armitage - it cannot be launched
Maltego - it launches but it cannot be operated and it cannot be quit too
BeEF - it shows an error and no login screen is displayed UNLESS you start the "beef start" at "System Services" under "Applications" menu

There may be some more other applications that cannot work, such as "system log", "VLC media player", "ImageMagick" and etc. I cannot test them all one by one as they are too many.

* Even the VirtualBox Guest Additions is uninstalled or reinstall the Kali 2.0, the captioned applications still do not working properly

** Other applications on the Applications menu are not tested as well as those are not in the Applications menu

*** Running BeEF, it produces the following error :
(process:1371): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size = 0' failed

(E) Conclusion

Kali Linux 2.0 is not well tested before it is released. It is very disappointed. Kali 2.0 is slower than 1.1.0a on the same testing machine. Or you may need a more powerful computer or laptop to do with it. Some applications cannot be running properly on the Quick Menu in this release. DISAPPOINTED!

That's all! See you.


Update on August 12, 2015

I conducted a random test on Kali Linux 2.0, I found the following :

redis-server is running in the background.

Apache2 is listening on TCP6 only instead of TCP4 and TCP6 at the same time.

OpenVAS cannot be started properly via "Applications", "System services", "openvas start". Systemd error produced.

It seems that systemd is buggy.


Update on August 13, 2015

After talking with the founder of Offensive Security (muts), I going to install Kali Linux 2.0 to other virtual machine software to see the result.

I try to install Kali Linux 2.0 on VMWare Workstation 11 for Linux on a laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad X200 with 4GB RAM) but it failed in the middle and the installation never completed. I do not have Workstation 12, so I cannot test it.

Then, I pick up another laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad X201s with 8GB RAM) which is running VirtualBox 4.3.30 on Ubuntu 14.04. I assigned 4GB RAM to Kali. The installation is smooth. May be the Kali Linux repos server is out of the DDoS. (Kali Linux repos server has been DDoS for hours since it is released according to the founder of Offensive Security).

The VirtualBox Guest Additions CD is installed without problem. However, "armitage", "system log", "VLC media player" and "ImageMagick" do not launched. Meanwhile, "redis-server" is running in the background; "Apache2" is listening on TCP6 only. "systemd" errors will be produced on selecting "openvas start".

On the other hand, "Maltego" and "BeEF" are working properly with only one click.

Kali Linux 2.0 is running fast and responsive on VirtualBox 4.3.30.

Some users at #kali-linux (IRC channel) found some weird problems, such as "thin.services" is running and making the system very slow.

Ubuntu 14.04.4 desktop is running smoothly on VirtualBox 5.0. It is suspected that Kali Linux 2.0 selects hardware and virtual machine software.

The conclusion is changed to ACCEPTABLE! Kali Linux Team should be doing better.


Update on August 13, 2015 (Part 2)

This time, I want to test Kali Linux 2.0 VirtualBox 64-bit image and it is running 2GB RAM and 30GB hard drive.

There is a "kali-proposed-updates.list" at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and the content is :

deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana-proposed-updates main contrib non-free

Running on VirtualBox 5.0 on Ubuntu 14.04.3 host :

"armitage" cannot be launched.
"maltego" cannot run properly and it cannot be quit.
"BeEF" launched but no login screen UNLESS run "beef start" at "System services" under "Applications".

"VLC media player" and "ImageMagick" do not work.
"system log" works.
"Apache2" is listening on TCP6 only.
"redis-server" is running in the background.

"dkms" accompanied with only one headers file.
Guest Additions CD install with the same "systemctl" error message.

"systemd" errors will be produced on selecting "openvas start".

Running on VirtualBox 4.3.30 on Ubuntu 14.04.3 host :

"armitage" cannot be launched.
"maltego" and "BeEF" can be launched with one click.

"VLC media player" and "ImageMagick" do not work.
"system log" works.
"Apache2" is listening on TCP6 only.
"redis-server" is running in the background.

"dkms" accompanied with only one headers file.
Guest Additions CD install with the same "systemctl" error message.

* Not kidding, it has error message.

"systemd" errors will be produced on selecting "openvas start".

Obviously, Kali Linux Team did not well test their work before it is released. The content of VirtualBox image is different from the ISO. The rating is still remain as ACCEPTABLE!

I will not test any ISO or image files for this release any more. May be wait for the next release.

* It seems that this VirtualBox image is installed VirtualBox 5.0 Guest Additions CD


Update on August 14, 2015

muts stated that I am misinformed. Therefore, I make a very boring video (about 26 minutes long) to proof which is posted at the beginning of this article today.

The Kali Linux official site asks user to use VirtualBox 4.2.xx or higher to run.

Armitage is updated yesterday by Kali Linux Team. Therefore, it is working fine now. Meanwhile, VirtualBox is updated from 5.0.0 to 5.0.2 and the high CPU loading on Linux host is fixed.

I also test Debian 8.1 (latest update) on the same environment and installed the Guest Additions CD. I also encounter the "systemctl double free or corruption (fasttop)" error. This error may be from VirtualBox 5.0.x or from Debian.

However, Kali Linux Team forgot to test their amazing Kali Linux 2.0 with VirtualBox 5.0.x on Linux host. Therefore, the rating is still ACCEPTABLE.


Update on August 17, 2015

Fedora 22 is systemd by default. I install Fedora 22 (64-bit) on VirtualBox 5.0.2 with Ubuntu 14.04 host without any problem or error, including Guest Additions CD install.

I also test Kali Linux 2.0 (64-bit) on VirutalBox 5.0.2 with Mac OSX 10.10.5 and it has the similar errors.


Update on August 25, 2015

Since I do not like Kali Linux 2.0, I install my favourite tools on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS recently (please refers to here). I find out that at least BeEF is running very difference between Kali Linux 2.0 and Ubuntu 14.04 on VirtualBox 5.0.2. Kali Linux 2.0 will produces error messages while Ubuntu does not. Both version of BeEF are 0.4.6.1-alpha. I make a video on that, here you are :

HOWTO : Stagefright Vulnerabilities Detection and Protection on Android

What is Stagefright vulnerabilities in Android?

Android devices running Android versions 2.2 through 5.1.1_r5 contain vulnerabilities in the Stagefright media playback engine. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to access multimedia files or potentially take control of a vulnerable device.

Detection

To test your Andorid if it is vulnerable to Stagefright vulnerabilities, you can use the following Apps by Zimperium INC.

Google Play - Stagefright Detector by Zimperium INC

Protection

It is recommended to update/upgrade your Android ROM to non-vulnerable version. If your vendors do not release any update/upgrade, you can perform the following steps for a workaround.

Workaround to protect your Android device

Remarks

I confirmed that CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightly for OnePlus One is fixed the Stagefright vulnerabilities by using Google Play - Stagefright Detector by Zimperium INC while OnePlus One v5.0.2 (Cyanogen OS version 12.0-YNG1TAS2I3) and Google Nexus 5 v5.1.1 (Build number LMY48B) are still vulnerable to Stagefright vulnerabilities at the time of this writing.

It is also confirmed that CyanogenMod 12.0 and 12.1 are fixed for the vulnerabilities. Or, you may consider to flash CyanogenMod ROM if your devices are supported.

If you have OnePlus One, you can follow this guide to update/upgrade your OnePlus One.

That's all! See you.
