Line 14 would also change to a local path. Since NTLM and impersonation work fine in a Windows NT 4/0 environment, none of the limitations described above would apply. A similar approach is presented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article – 827227, which describes how to use a Visual Basic script to install the 824146 (MS03-039) or 823980 (MS03-026) security patches (a script included in the article is modifiable to allow deployment of other patches).

One thing to consider is the power of the users, and by this I mean political power. Students don't really have power beyond "give me what I want or I will take my tuition dollars elsewhere", but that little bit of power may work in the aggregate to get them the technical resources they want.

There are several effective methods for destroying digital data before trashing old media. Windows (check here) has gotten better over time with this. In Vista and newer versions of Windows (check this site out) un-checking the "quick format" option helps because it will then 0 out the bytes on the drive. Things worked differently in the XP days. Media like diskettes and CDs/DVDs can be broken apart, or shredders can be bought that are especially designed to do the job. Granted, if you want to get picky, there are still ways to get back some of the data from shredded media, but they are cost prohibitive. The most cost effective means is to take a pair of tough shears and cut the diskette or CD into bits, but make sure goggles are worn to protect the wearers eyes from flying shards.

In fact they found (as the M$ advisory is not clear on the subject) the 2nd BoF(CAN-2003-0528) and not the DoS. The one you are talking of is an old (few weeks) vulnerability related to MS03 (https://dybdoska.ru/hack/?patch=4171)-026 found by Ben Jurry.

By their very nature university and library systems are more open and accessible than corporate systems and must remain so to be useful to the patrons, students, staff, and faculty who use them. Also, having a certain class of users with excessive power for their competency level, a sense of entitlement, and that can't be fired because of tenure also complicates the using of the stick approach. Even though you can't make your campus' network completely secure and still useable, you can do your best to limit the efforts of the casual attacker. The less casual ones you can hire.

Heads up - New critical vulnerability in Microsoft ASN.1 Lib

In this article I hope to point out some of the common security problems with campus environments and some of the solutions. Many problems may not be solvable because the solution would be counter to the mission of your organization, but with a watchful eye many troubles can be averted. Don't underestimate the power of user awareness training as well, though don't over estimate it either (I believe cynicism is next to Godliness, and I'm an agnostic).

CVE-2021-2368,CVE-2021-2369 This security bulletin issues updates on several vulnerabilities in Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution on the vulnerable system.

One problem is figuring out what these laws mean from a technical stand point. Saying that "auditing controls" and encryption must be in place tells you little about what you should implement, and I imagine someone could fit the letter of some laws while still breaking the sprit of them (default Windows host logs only and ROT13 for encryption). Then again, I'm not sure we would want law makers deciding the exact technical controls you have to put in place, so maybe vague is better. For now, I'll just give you a survey of the acronym soup that is compliance, and point you towards some laws that may apply to your institution.

In their place use encrypted protocols like SFTP, SSH (Secure Shell), and HTTPS when possible. Protocols like FTP may be hard to switch away from because the clients and servers for more secure protocols like SFTP are not necessarily build into the common Operating Systems patrons will be using.

For Cisco Unity with Microsoft Exchange systems, we recommend that you use the latest version of the Cisco Unity Voice Connector for Microsoft Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003 that is supported for your version of Cisco Unity. If you call Cisco TAC with a problem related to VPIM interoperability, the Cisco TAC engineer may require that you upgrade to a newer supported version of the Voice Connector, if one is available.

I don't personally do remote brute forcing of passwords. It's loud (assuming anyone is reading the logs, more on that in a bit), slow and prone to error.

There are many times where I would not have noticed attackers on the network if it were not for looking in Event Viewer for failed login attempts. Of course logging must be turned on for this to work so open up MMC (Microsoft Management Console), add Security Configuration and Analysis, and setup logging of failed logins and access attempts. Better yet, set up a GPO (Group Policy Object) to automatically configure security auditing when a machine logs on to the network.

This may be done in the name of security so fewer people will have the elevated privileges, but it can have a negative effect on the overall security of the organization. If support staff members need certain rights to do their jobs they should be given them, otherwise it leads to password sharing and the use of single accounts that have many users. This can cause major problems for accountability, attribution and damage control. Let's say Kevin has rights to add new machines into the domain, but his staff does not.

Turning off file sharing on computers that do not need it is a must. Many types of attacks can be averted if an attacker does not have access to administrative shares. Those faculty and staff who must use file and printer sharing should be taught how to set proper share permissions. By default, Windows 2000 use to give the Everyone group full read and write access to shares, Windows XP and 7 gives just Read to the Everyone group in the default config screen. Many folks don't know any better and just take the defaults.

Cain can extract the SYSKEY from the SYSTEM registry hive and use that to extract the password hashes from the SAM file and crack them. If you really want to speed up the cracking process, look into the aforementioned Hashcat, especially if you can use your video card to accelerate the process.

MS03-039: Microsoft RPC Interface Buffer Overrun

Much of an information security professional's job involves keeping outsiders away from the internal network. A great deal of time and money is spent on firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems to protect server and client machines from threats coming from the Internet, limiting some attack vectors to only computers on the LAN. Physical security is also taken into consideration, with access cards and locked doors used to keep unwanted visitors off of the local network and to limit physical proximity to the infrastructure. This is all fine and good for corporate environments, but what about open environments like libraries and university campuses? When an organization's purpose is the dissemination of knowledge, the paradigm (don't you just love that word) of information security shifts tremendously and one cannot be sure that all users on the LAN are completely benevolent. This article will be geared towards techs at universities, libraries and other open environments and will attempt to address common security problems that may pop up at these institutions.

The responsible party would be harder to trace because so many staff members have access to the account. Another example is when a support staff member is given the local Administrator passwords to workstations instead of being put into a Domain security group. If that employee is later terminated it's much harder to contain the damage they can do because even if they are taken out of the support staff security groups they still know other staff's passwords and the local Administrator passwords. It's very important to implement a password change policy for when staff leave the organization.

Using methods similar to these, a user could view the source code of another script (possibly revealing database passwords), or if the web server's file system has loose permissions, they could edit other web pages or system files. The same thing goes for Apache/*nix web servers with overly broad permissions (chmod 666 is the mark of the beast when it comes to insecure file permissions).

Another interesting oddity of universities is network inertia and IP space. Many corporations present a few IPs to the Internet, and all of the clients are NATed off. Many universities got in on the IP address space land rush early, so they have enough publically accessible IPs that they can, and do, assign them to workstations, printer and other network gear. Granted, for some types of experimentation you need the public IPs, but not for simple things like email, web surfing and watching YouTube. This makes things more difficult to secure as users don't even have to worm their way into a NATed off network first, then attack the inside.

Vulnerabilities were indeed detected, and they were exactly the type of vulnerabilities which could have led to the appearance of another worm such as Lovesan or Mytob. The vulnerability detailed in MS06-040 is extremely similar to the MS03 (https://dybdoska.ru/content/uploads/files/download/ms03-039-patch-windows-7.zip)-26 and MS04-011 vulnerabilities, which were exploited by Lovesan and Sasser respectively. Thankfully, Microsoft was able to ensure that information about the vulnerability did not enter the public domain before a patch (https://dybdoska.ru/hack/?patch=3572) was available. The exploit which then appeared for this vulnerability only ran on a limited number of versions of Windows (https://dybdoska.ru/hack/?patch=3764) and did not attract the attention of virus writers. Consequently, the anticipated August epidemic did not take place.

Directly connected chaining of additional mass storage onto a RAID channel or channels hosted via a SCSI controller. Note that Cisco TAC is unable to assist with this hardware setup or with problems related to this storage configuration.

This amounts to having another SSID out there on hardware the attacker controls with the same name as the legitimate one. How will users know which to attach to? Karma/Jasager style attacks do this one better by listening to probes for preferred networks, then when the evil router sees a probe from a client for any SSID it responds "Hey, that's me, go ahead and connect".

A routine dealing with the class allocates a size specified in a length field within the request packet. This DWORD length field is not validated before allocation so any size can be chosen by the client issuing the activation request. Normally this buffer is released after the activation request as completed. If we choose an abnormally large size, one that is larger than the memory pool of the source buffer, we can cause an exception when the page boundary is hit. Like most exception handlers, no cleanup is performed due to the unpredictable nature of the exception.

Since you can't control what patrons have on their laptops, and other wireless devices, it's harder to keep certain kinds of malware off of the network. A worm that's blocked by your Internet facing firewall may have no problem spreading from an infected laptop that a patron brings onto the wireless network. A good practice is to have the wireless side of the network well filtered by a firewalled from the wired side.

Software Requirements—Cisco Unity Server

The RPC (Remote Procedure Call) protocol provides an inter-process communication mechanism allowing a program running on one computer to execute code on a remote system. Distributed COM (DCOM) extends the usability of COM to support COM communication across a network with other computers. The DCOM RPC interface in charge of processing incoming RPC based DCOM activation requests has been prone to failure in the past.

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you use a password longer than fourteen characters no LM hash will be stored for it. NT hashes can also be cracked of course, but LM hashes are much more vulnerable because they are single case and broken into two easily cracked seven byte chunks. Up to date anti-virus software and regular scans for common key loggers is another good idea (though custom written malware is unlikely to be detected).
