Routing Table Poisoning

Well you have heard of arp poisoning and dns cache poisoning,this attack is quite similar but require alot of knowledge to perform it correctly.
So what we will do, we use icmp redirect host packet to add a fake routing entry in victim machine to do MITM(Man In The Middle) or DOS(Denial Of service) or DNS Poisoning.Yes that's the beauty, all three can be done using this attack.
Redirect requests data packets be sent on an alternative route. ICMP Redirect is a mechanism for routers to convey routing information to hosts. The message informs a host to update its routing information (to send packets on an alternative route). If a host tries to send data through a router (R1) and R1 sends the data on another router (R2) and a direct path from the host to R2 is available (that is, the host and R2 are on the same Ethernet segment), then R1 will send a redirect message to inform the host that the best route for the destination is via R2. The host should then send packets for the destination directly to R2.
The routing table poisoning  would most likely be employed in a network penetration testing scenario whereby extensive layer 2 security features are enabled limiting the effectiveness of layer 2 attacks such as ARP cache poisoning and rogue DHCP server attack. 

Step1: Craft icmp redirect  packet usign scapy 
Victim:192.168.189.130
Attacker:192.168.189.152
Gateway:192.168.189.2
Craft ICMP Host Redirect Packet


Step2: Result:Let have a look at victims routing table:
Poisoned Routing Table of Victim
As you can see we have successfully poisoned routing table of victim for '8.8.8.8' and '10.1.1.1' without making any noise.So now victim will contact attacker in order to contact '8.8.8.8' because according to its poisoned routing table attacker have shortest path to '8.8.8.8'

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

Jsunpack-n Tutorial (Analyzing Malicious Documents)

INSTALLATION: Required Dependencies(all these dependencies are present in jsunpack-n package in a folder named depend): 1) Build and install pynids (nids) from ./depends/pynids-0.6.1.tar.gz To compile pynids, you may need the following (ubuntu) packages: libpcap-dev pkg-config python-dev libgtk2.0-dev libnet1-dev         To install these package either use software center or command apt-get install PackageName     $ cd depends     $ tar xvfz pynids-0.6.1.tar.gz $ cd pynids-0.6.1/ directory $ python setup.py build $ sudo python setup.py install 2) Build SpiderMonkey 'js' from ./depends/js-1.8.0-rc1-src.tar.gz     This package has modifications to the spidermonkey source code; therefore, it is not recommended you use default smjs packages. (Details of the modifications are in INSTALL.spidermonkey.shellcode and INSTALL.spidermonkey, for historical purposes)     $ cd depends/     $ tar xvfz js-1.8.0-rc1-src.tar.gz     $ cd js-1.8.0-rc1-src     $ mak

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
