Tribal Flood Network 2000 (TFN2K)

It runs the same DOS attacks as Targa plus an additional five exploits. In addition, it is a DDOS tool, which means it can run in a distributed mode where several machines all across the Internet attack a single machine or network.

Because TFN2K is a DDOS application and runs in a distributed mode, there are two main pieces to the program: a client module and a server module. The client module is the piece that controls the servers; it tells
the servers when to attack and with what exploit. The server runs on a machine in listening mode and waits to get commands from the client.

It is important to note that to start and stop a TFN2K attack, the user of the program must supply a password. The password is supplied when the program is installed.
An additional important fact to point out is that TFN2K is very stealthy. It does several things that make it harder to detect on a network. For example, all communication between the client and the server are sent
using ICMP_ECHO REPLY packets. This is harder to detect because port numbers are not used. So, even if you run a port scanner on a regular basis, you would not be able to detect that your system is being used as a TFN2K server.

Hacking Windows 10 UWP App: DLL Injection & common Vulnerabilities

I recently started working on  widows 10 Apps( Apps not Applications) security. Before diving deep in hacking terms lets try to understand what's new in Windows 10 UWP( Universal Platform) as compared to old Apps. Lets begin with how apps actually work on windows 10(desktop/tablet). Now windows 10 comes with a container only for running apps inside the isolated environment. By default, /APPCONTAINER(Linker Flag) is off. This option modifies an executable to indicate whether the app must be run in the appcontainer process-isolation environment. Specify /APPCONTAINER for an app that must run in the appcontainer environment—for example, a Windows Store app. (The option is set automatically in Visual Studio when you create a Windows Store app from a template.) For a desktop app, specify /APPCONTAINER:NO or just omit the option. The /APPCONTAINER option was introduced in Windows 8. Now there is no registry entry concept for these app in the System HIVE rather they install they own hiv

SSI Injection Attack

SSIs are directives present on Web applications used to feed an HTML page with dynamic contents. They are similar to CGIs, except that SSIs are used to execute some actions before the current page is loaded or while the page is being visualized. In order to do so, the web server analyzes SSI before supplying the page to the user. The Server-Side Includes attack allows the exploitation of a web application by injecting scripts in HTML pages or executing arbitrary codes remotely. It can be exploited through manipulation of SSI in use in the application or force its use through user input fields. It is possible to check if the application is properly validating input fields data by inserting characters that are used in SSI directives, like:  Code: < ! # = / . " - > and [a-zA-Z0-9] Another way to discover if the application is vulnerable is to verify the presence of pages with extension .stm, .shtm and .shtml. However, the lack of these type of pages does not mean that th
