Advanced Web Hacking - Attacks & Defense (Upcoming talk)


Attacks to web application layer are on the rise and innovative methodologies, attack vectors and exploits are coming into existence. To combat these threats it is imperative to understand its nature, characteristics and risk to application layer. Some of the new attack vectors are XPATH injection, LDAP poisoning and advanced SQL injection. These vectors are getting popular with XML based web applications. At the same time new methodologies for web application foot printing and discovery are coming to existence with rich search engine information provided by Google & MSN. These methodologies are important to have as a tool to web security professionals. Open source exploit framework like Metasploit can be used effectively for web application exploit development for penetration testers. This presentation will encompass new methodologies, tools and techniques on both the aspects - attacks & defense.

MSNPawn - New tool is coded up.

MSNPawn has been designed and developed on the .Net framework and must be installed on the system. The following utilities have been bundled with MSNPawn.

MSNHostFP - Supply an IP Address or IP Address range to fetch all possible virtual hosts or application running on each IP addresses.

MSNDomainFP - Supply a domain name to fetch the top 50 child domains, considering the supplied domain name as parent.

MSNCrossDomainFP - Supply an application domain to fetch the top 50 domains pointing to this particular domain on the Internet.

MSNCrawler - Supply a domain or application name to fetch all possible links crawled by the search engine.

MSNFetch - Supply a domain and rules file. The tool will run each rule in the file against the domain specified and fetch the first five results of the resultant query. This can help in assessing an application.

Search.MSN - Provides place to run your search against MSN and gather all URLs.

Whitepaper is included for better understanding for all these tools.
