We follow best practices, up to and including closely following Google's BeyondCorp approach to "Zero Trust" for our entire infrastructure. Our security philosophy is, "we must always be the most secure part of any organization that we may ever work with." This has enabled us to be a strong, trusted advisor and service provider to our customers and channel partners.
This guide will walk you through using CanaryTokens.org to generate a token and how to use that token to determine if an application is vulnerable to Log4j. The generated token is a string of text that you will place in various user-controlled fields of the applications (such as search boxes, forms, and password fields). If the application is vulnerable, you will receive an email from CanaryTokens.org indicating that the application is vulnerable.
The recent Log4j vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) is unprecedented in its global scope and impact. This open source logging framework for Apache is found buried in everything from the Mars Helicopter to Minecraft. The exploit is as simple as getting the system to log a message containing a specific string, which can be done as easily as changing your iPhone’s name, sending a chat message, or visiting a website.
It’s that time of year again - DEF CON! We were thrilled to run OpenSOC again at DEF CON this year, even if it had to be virtual (fingers crossed we’re all in person again in 2022).
We can't start a recap post without a huge THANK YOU to the community for joining us last week and making SOC X such a success!
In my previous post, I explained the fundamental purpose and use cases of pipelines in Graylog – now let's move towards some more advanced topics.
If you are here hoping to learn more about using Graylog for the purpose of monitoring the security posture of your organization, strap in – it's about to get real.
At Recon InfoSec we have the honor of working with some of the best security operations, incident response, and threat hunting teams in the world: Fortune 100 companies, military cyber protection teams, global incident response firms, “3 letter agencies,” and “Big 4” professional services companies.
Whether you're on the Defensive or Offensive side of security, it's important to understand how common attack tools look in an environment. As someone defending a network, the use of proper logging can help prevent visibility gaps. You could have the best perimeter detections that are available, but without visibility into the activity on your endpoints, you're essentially missing a piece of the puzzle.
