  • Corporate security – Best practices vulnerability assessments and testing
    Corporate security – Best practices vulnerability assessments and testing https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/Getting+the+best+value+out+of+security+assessments/25498/ There are many aspects to managing vulnerabilities in today’s complex IT environments. Performing security assessments is a popular way of identifying existing vulnerabilities, which then allows for proper mitigation. In this article we look at the differences between vulnerability scanning, penetration testing and red teaming, three security assessments that are popular, but that should be performed with care, in order to achieve best results. 1. Vulnerability scanning — must be performed regularly in every organization, preferably with internal tools. The most popular network vulnerability scanners are Rapid7 Nexpose, Tenable Nessus and Qualys. Just keep in mind that these should be used for network scanning, while other, more specialised tools exist for application level scanning (i.e. for web applications). 2. Penetration test — should detail all identified vulnerabilities, with recommendations on how to fix them. All listed vulnerabilities should be verified by the penetration tester – there should be no false positives there! It is now clear that penetration tests require a lot of manual work – that’s why they take quite a long time and are typically more expensive than a vulnerability assessment. 3. Red team exercise — is the ... read more

  • Configuring a Windows developer machine with no admin rights
    Recently, I went to a client, where they assigned me a machine to work, but there was no software installed, and there was no admin rights to install any software. I had to set up my box to start development before all the red tape could be set, licenses assigned, software installed and so on. So I thought to setup a box where I could install the software as standard user, with no need of any special licenses to get up und running for development in Dotnet Core and React with Typescript (the same steps can be used to develop with Angular or any other Javascript environment). Initially, I installed Google Chrome (its developer tools are great and you can debug your Javascript apps in it). I went to Chrome site (https://www.google.com/chrome/), downloaded the installer and ran it. When it asked me the admin credentials, I clicked Cancel and the installed offered to install as Standard User. Then I installed Visual Studio Code. It’s a terrific IDE to edit your programs (in any language) and even debug your apps. There are extensions to do everything, it’s really great. I used a direct link to download the portable version and unzip ... read more
