  • Microsoft Confirms Server Misconfiguration Led to 65,000+ Companies' Data Leak

    • Microsoft “misconfigured” an Azure Blob Storage server causing a security breach. Attackers were able to access unauthorized customer data; business transactions and other interactions between Microsoft and its customers. SOCRadar, a cyber security company, is calling the security breach “BlueBleed”. SOCRadar discovered the breach on September 24, 2022 Microsoft is downplaying the security breach but security researcher Kevin Beaumont isn't buying it. Mr. Beaumont suggest Microsoft dropped the ball on informing its customers, and federal regulators, of the security breach in a timely manner.
  • HiddenAds malware affects 1M+ Android users

    • McAfee’s Mobile Research Team identified multiple apps containing malware on the Google Play Store. After install, the malicious android apps automatically run services without the user knowing or interacting with the app. That’s right, they auto run after install. These malicious apps then disguise themselves by changing their icon to the “Google Play” icon and renaming to themselves to “Google Play” or “Settings”. The malicious apps quickly create permanent malicious services. McAfee’s Mobile Research Team demonstrates the resilience of the malware by using kill -9 on the service processes. More malicious processes generate immediately as if nothing happened.
  • Fully undetectable PowerShell backdoor disguised as part of a Windows update

    • Director of security research at SafeBreach, Tomer Bar stated, "The covert self-developed tool and the associated C2 commands seem to be the work of a sophisticated, unknown threat actor who has targeted approximately 100 victims."
    • Based on the metadata found within a malicious document, this seems to be a LinkedIn-based spear-phishing attack, which ultimately leads to the execution of a PowerShell script via a piece of embedded macro code.
    • "The Macro drops 'updater.vbs' creates a scheduled task pretending to be part of a Windows update, which will execute the updater.vbs script from a fake update folder under '%appdata%\local\Microsoft\Windows,'"said Tomar.
    • Currently 32 security vendors and 18 anti-malware engines have flagged the decoy document and the PowerShell scripts as malicious.
    • The findings come as Microsoft has taken steps to block Excel 4.0 (XLM or XL4) and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros by default across Office apps, prompting threat actors to pivot to alternative delivery methods.
  • Millions of patients compromised in hospital data leak.

    • Nearly 3 million Illinois & Wisconsin patients are caught in a hospital data breach. Advocate Aurora Health, which operates 27 hospitals, said in a statement, “the breach may have exposed information including a patients' medical provider, type of appointments, medical procedures, dates and locations of scheduled appointments, and IP addresses”. The system blamed the breach on its use of pixels, computer code that collects information on how a user interacts with a website, including products developed by Google and Facebook's parent company Meta that make the collected data accessible to those companies.
    • The health care industry's use of pixels has come under wide criticism from privacy advocates who warn that the technology's use violates federal patient privacy law. A report published in June by The Markup found many of the country's top-ranked hospitals used the Meta Pixel, collecting and sending sensitive patient information to the social media company.

A battery converts chemical energy into electrical energy by a chemical reaction. Usually the chemicals are kept inside the battery. It is used in a circuit to power other components. A battery produces direct current (DC) electricity (electricity that flows in one direction, and does not switch back and forth).

Using the electricity from an outlet in a building is cheaper and more efficient, but a battery can provide electricity in areas that do not have electric power distribution. It is also useful for things that move, such as electric vehicles and mobile phones.

Batteries may be primary or secondary. The primary is thrown away when it can no longer provide electricity. The secondary can be recharged and reused.

Any other business

A question came up in November regarding the HPR RSS feeds. All of the URLs in these feeds use 'http' as opposed to 'https'.

Although this may seem odd, this is a fairly common thing to do, because the RSS standard (such as it is) does not cater for 'https' links. There is a concern that passing an RSS feed with such links to a validator (such as the W3C Feed Validation Service) will result in it being marked as invalid.

Introduction

I have wanted an e-ink based e-reader for a while. Reading on my computer is ok. Reading on my phone is doable, but is very annoying. If I don't keep my finger on the screen, it will go blank and then I have to make sure and press the power button to bring the screen back to life before it locks. A tablet would probably be a nice compromise, but I really wanted to try out an e-ink display, and didn't want the potential distractions of a more multi-purpose device. I wanted not only and e-ink display, but also one that ran a linux operating system, and a reader that I could potentially put a different Linux distribution on, or modify myself somehow. When asked what I wanted for Christmas this year by my wonderful girlfriend, I sent her a link to the KOBO Libra H20.

KOBO Libra H20 specification

  • processor - Freescale i.MX6 SLL 1 GHz

  • RAM - 512 MB

  • hard drive - 8GB

  • display - 7 inch HD 300 PPI E Ink touchscreen with 1680 x 1264 resolution

  • dimensions - 6.3 by 5.7 by 0.3 inches (HWD) and 6.8 ounces or 159 by 144 by 7.6 mm and 192g

  • battery - 1200 mAh. Good battery life. Currently I use it infrequently, and have charged it maybe 4 or 5 times of the last year

  • Connectivity -WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Micro USB. I have it connected to my home network. Have only used WiFi to update the OS. I use the USB port to transfer books I've downloaded to my computer, and to charge the Kobo.

Calibre ebook management

I knew about Calibre, but had never used it. So far it has been a great e-book manager. Has very nice features for editing meta data and organizing my books. It will also transfer the books to the Libra H20 and update its internal database. One thing I found is KOBO does have its own EPUB format that it uses to optimize display of books. In particular, it fixes an issue where images in standard EPUB format don't scale to the size of the page. Calibre has a plugin system, and a 3rd party plugin is available that will convert a standard EPUB format to KePUB when you transfer the book to the e-reader.

Conclusion

I have been enjoying my KOBO reader. It can feel a little slow at times, especially rendering pdf files where the page is a picture of the text and not made up of electronic characters, and it does render images in standard epub format a bit small at times. Other than these two things, it is very easy to read in all lighting settings, and I enjoy reading using the KOBO.

hpr3734 :: Inetd: the internet super-server

I talk about inetd and give an example of how to write a service for it


Hosted by binrc on 2022-11-24 is flagged as Explicit and released under a CC-BY-SA license.
BSD, inetd.
Listen in ogg, spx, or mp3 format. general. | Comments (2).

Inetd, the internet super-server

Inetd is slowly becoming one of my favorite daemons. It makes writing programs that talk over the network super easy. Inetd handles all of the hard socket stuff and allows admins to write simple UNIX-ey programs. Inetd is useful because it allows us to write services that only run when they are requested in order to reduce total system load.

How inetd works

Inetd can be conceptualized as a sort of "wrapper daemon". Inetd is always running despite the fact that many of it's sub-services are not always running.

Inetd listens on a specific port. When it gets a request, it handles all of the hard socket parts. This request is then passed to one of our inetd services

We will use a simple server that echoes the request back to the user as an example. We will call this inetd service echod

Inetd passes requests to echod as text. echod will read from stdin and write to stdout. Everything written to stdout is passed to the client. echod will then exit.

echo server example

I use OpenBSD on my webserver. Sadly, systemd sockets have replaced inetd on many linux systems. systemd sockets are entirely painful to use. I can't verify that these examples will work on non-OpenBSD systems but the openbsd-inetd package is available on a wide variety of debianoiads.

Let's write out out echod service and the configuration files required to get it working.

Edit /etc/inetd.conf

# port  socket type protocol    wait/nowait user    server program      server arguments(optional)
9999    stream      tcp         nowait      daemon  /opt/echod/echod.sh

And our echod service file, located at /opt/echod/echod.sh:

#!/bin/sh
while read l; do
        echo $l;
done;

exit 0;

Be sure to chmod +x echod.sh and rcctl enable inetd && rcctl start inetd or it won't run.

Testing

Sometimes you can use curl to test a service but I will use netcat instead because it doesn't assume http.

$ echo "foobar" | nc -N localhost 9999
foobar
$

You can also use telnet to test the service:

$ telnet localhost 9999
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
foo
foo
foobar
foobar
echo back
echo back
^]
telnet> Connection closed.
$

Finger server example

Many months ago, I wrote a finger server to learn more about how inetd works (and to write a finger daemon that doesn't allow for enumerating non-regular users). You can download the source code for my finger server from my gitlab.

This finger server only allows information from users who have a home directory in /home/ to be displayed. It also has hard-coded filenames it looks for. Example output looks something like:

$ finger binrc@localhost
[localhost/127.0.0.1]
binrc@openbsd.my.domain

https://0x19.org

Working on an HPR episode

binrc.nospam@nospam.protonmail.com

No .pgpkey

$

Gopher server example

Currently, I am working on a gopher server that runs through inetd to learn more about how gopher works (and to write a gopher server that doesn't allow for path traversal). I have yet to add autoindex support but I thought it would be good to include anyway because it really demonstrates how simple it can be to write an inetd service. You can download the source code for my gopher server from my gitlab.

This gopher server reads input from standard in and prints the requested file to standard out. Writing an inetd service can be as easy as writing an application specific version of cat(1).

Giving the service SSL

You can pair inetd with relayd to make any inetd service use ssl. In this example, I am symlinking my existing httpd certs obtained with acme.sh

# ln -s /etc/ssl/example.com.fullchain.pem /etc/ssl/example.com\:9998.crt
# ln -s /etc/ssl/private/example.com.key /etc/ssl/private/example.com\:9998.key

A sample relayd configuration looks like:

log connection

tcp protocol "echod" {
        tls keypair "example.com:9998"
}

relay "echod" {
        listen on example.com port 9998 tls
        protocol "echod"
        forward to 127.0.0.1 port 9999
}

After enabling and starting relayd, it will now be listening on port 9998. When it receives traffic on 9998, it will perform all of the fancy cryptography stuff and pass the request to localhost:9999. Since relayd is listening on 9999 and passing requests on 9999 to the echo server, we are now running an echo server with ssl.

Conclusion

Do I run inetd in production? No, not really. I have in the past but I haven't needed it seeing as finger, echo, and gopher are dead protocols. Even if inetd is largely useless in the modern era, it's still fun to play with.
