Automating security Scans:Part-1


Running daily scans manually is a very cumbersome and boring task. So I thought of automating them for ease and fast processing. So Zaproxy is very well known OWASP vulnerability scanner that can be very helpful for webapps pentesting and lot more. So here are few steps to get started with OWASP Zaproxy:
Step1: Download ZAProxy from here
Step2: You can run Zaproxy in GUI mode to get feel and things that are available on this beautiful scanner. But in order to automated I prefer it running in daemon mode. So I use follwoing command:

./zap.sh -daemon -config api.disablekey=true &

So this command will start ZAP in daemon mode with ZAP APIs listening  on 8080  by default. Oh I forget to tell you that this scanner comes with REST API which you can access using python, java or ruby also. Everything that you can do from gui is also supported by these APIs.
I generally use python so I installed owasp-zapv2 using pip.

pip install python-owasp-zap-v2.4

If you want to read more about python Zap apis follow this link:
https://github.com/zaproxy/zaproxy/wiki/ApiPython

So now ZAP is running in daemon mode with api key disabled . API key is required for secure access to API i.e only client having api key can request ZAP-API. So that means now it is open for all.
Lets fix it with a small startup script. Reason for disabling API-key is every  time while writing scripts you have to take care of this api key. I'll recommend to use it :P . So here comes the fix for stupidity:

#!/bin/bash
/usr/share/zaproxy/zap.sh -daemon -config api.disablekey=true &
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8080 -s 127.0.0.1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8080 -j DROP

move this file to /etc/init.d/ and run following commands.
chmod +x name-of-script
update-rc.d mystartup.sh defaults 100

Thats it now ZAP rest APIs are up and running at 8080.

Install Virtual Box On Kali Rolling

If you facing problem with virtualbox installation on kali rolling edition because of its outdated kernel 4.3.0-kali1-amd64 then this post is for you only.

Step1: Install latest kernel. First search the cache for list of available ones apt-cache search linux-headers
Depending upon the list choose one from the set and install install it.
you can download kernel file using wget from ubuntu source also.
example:wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.4.3-wily/linux-image-4.4.3-040403-generic_4.4.3-040403.201602251634_amd64.deb
for more refer to this post: link

Step2:
Edit the boot entry /boot/vmlinuz-(New Linux kernel Version) & /boot/initrd.img-(New Linux kernel version) in grub menu.

Before making boot entry changes be sure these files exist in the /boot directory after running install command.
In my case following new file got created in /boot folder:

1)vmlinuz-4.6.0-kali1-amd64
2)initrd.img-4.6.0-kali1-amd64

Thats all you need to do to install any virtual software on kali r…

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…
