Techworld.com - Hackers Snort at intrusion detection security

Techworld.com - Hackers Snort at intrusion detection security


First of all the exploit can't be done on every version of Snort, on every platform with a single UDP packet. True, that it only takes one UDP packet to trip the system, it physically cannot be coded to affect every version of Snort into one packet.


This is not the Witty Worm, and it's not the Slammer worm either. For as "trivial" as ISS claims it to be, I don't see a worm out yet!!!


HD Moore (of metasploit fame) has attempted to exploit the vulernability on every platform (proving to the community it can't be done), he is on his 33rd attempt at last known point.

It's all Bush's fault... or is it?

JUST THE SAME .... IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT

Now here's something you probably didn't know about Louisiana and Hurricane Katrina. At the very time Katrina was bearing down on New Orleans, there were several top-level officials in the very department of Louisiana government that prepares for emergencies such as Katrina sitting around and waiting for their trial. Trial, you say? Trial for what? Let's try corruption and throw in a bit of fraud.

It seems that these Louisiana officials either misspent or misplaced or ... worse ... about 60 million federal taxpayer bucks. Here are some details

In March of this year -- that's about five months before Katrina -- FEMA was asking for the return of $30.4 million that the federal government had sent to Louisiana for emergency planning and preparedness. Most of this money was sent to some state office called the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. Wai…

Mac OS X 10.4 Mods

Think I am going to start posting a few OSX 10.4 mods in the ol' blog. Lots of people need em.


Hint #2
1. When you log in. First thing you should do... Spotlight the word "quartz"
2. Start "Quartz Debug"
3. Close the little popup window
4. Go to Tools -> Enable 2d Extreme
5. Say thank you to the next little popup.
6. Leave it running, go on about your life.

This enables the 2d Extreme graphic rendering tool (not just for graphics, but for everything, even your desktop programs...) Makes every program you start after you start the debugger much faster. No, I don't know why Apple doesn't have this on by default, I read this in an article. Google it. It's a good article. Basically 2d Extreme is the most overlooked tool there is. (Note: You must have the XCode tools installed for this trick to work. IMHO It's worth it.)

Hint #2
Tinkertool. Download it. Use it.

Hint #3
Cocktail. Download it. Use it.

HInt #4
