Fiona Wightman, ex-wife of comedian Paul Whitehouse, is now giving evidence.

Mirror Group Newspapers admits unlawful information gathering - including paying a private investigator to “blag” her private medical records during her cancer treatment. But deny she was phoned hacked.
Fiona Wightman says in her witness statement “I began to get door stepped by journalists and asked to talk about my cancer. I was really shocked as I considered it private and didn't at any point give my story to the press.”
“I had someone calling the hospital pretending they should have had access to my records. I felt totally invaded and confused.”

Prince Harry arrives at the High Court to give evidence in his hacking case against Mirror Group Newspapers.

The first time in 130 years a senior Royal has appeared in a court witness box.

And promises to be box office… I’m off to get my seat in court! #PrinceHarry #Hacking
Prince Harry was quiet and sounded nervous as he stated his name “Prince Harry” and swore an oath on the bible in the witness box
I’ve never heard a barrister have to explain to the court the protocol on how to address a witness… “Your Royal Highness” in the first instance, then “Prince Harry”

Here’s what we learnt on Day Two of Duke of Sussex v NGN hearing…

#PrinceHarry was watching on a video-link from LA as more shocking details about alleged hacking and blagging at The Sun and News of The World were revealed in court documents.
It’s alleged in the mid-90s The Sun was even intercepting the phone calls and messages of Charles, now King Charles, and Camilla, now Queen Consort.
Prince Harry claims his own private information about his “education, his health and welfare” - would’ve been accessed as a result #hacking #RoyalFamily

A lesser-known yet effective way of #bugbounty hunting is called "hacktivity" hunting. It involves bypassing fixes on disclosed reports found on @Hacker0x01's hacktivity page. This approach helped me score a $5k bounty! Here's how it works.👇

#InfoSec #CyberSecurity
With hacktivity hunting, the hard part - finding interesting behavior or insecure features - is already done for you. Your main role is to find a bypass.

For example, I found a bypass for a report on

The original report tried to restrict access to /admin by restricting the path in Nginx. However, I bypassed it using simple encoding - /%2561dmin. Endpoints required authentication, but I bypassed this by adding ".json" at the end.

There are new pathogens in our midst.

My latest article about media #manipulators, velocity #hacking, and the latest Covid origin #controversy.

Maybe some #mainstream journalists & influencers take a good look in the mirror.

Read:… Image
How much should we think about the role of information in society?

In this article, I use the recent media coverage surrounding #lableak versus #zoonosis to point toward a new threat we have not yet wrapped our heads around:

Information pathogens with high #velocity. Image
#Velocity is a metric for the transmission efficacy of information given a particular content payload, its viral packaging, and its host environment.

Basically the R0 of information, a measure of #contagiousness.

Info pathogens with high velocity outcompetes good information. Image

Cybersecurity is essential for protecting our digital lives. From personal devices to enterprise systems, cyber threats are ever-present and evolving. As technology advances, so do the tactics and techniques of cybercriminals.
One of the most important steps in securing our digital lives is to use strong, unique passwords. This means avoiding common words and phrases, & instead using a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. It's also important to avoid reusing passwords across multiple accounts.
Another key aspect of cybersecurity is keeping software up to date. Software companies regularly release updates that include security patches and bug fixes. By keeping your software up to date, you can protect against known vulnerabilities that cybercriminals may exploit.

My recent #aws threads always startet with creds, but how to get these creds will be the topic over the next days.
#hacking #recon #cloud

Lets start here:
Definitions first:
#aws creds: classic name and passwords e.g for IAM, or aws access and secret keys
Outside: no creds, and no connections in any way to the org and its aws cloud to be tested
Interaction Point: Any potential point, application ressource, system, vulnerabilty etc, where there is a pawsibilty to gain #aws creds, can be a lot of things

lets do outside first: #hackers are cold, let them in.

As much as I love automation in recon, 98% of the findings in my pentests have nothing to do with it. Why? 👇
1. Inspired by @NahamSec recent video.

First, in a large majority of the web pentests, clients want me to focus only on their app and it's features. So, there's no need for subdomain enumeration/bruteforcing or any other large recon tactic.
2. This doesn't mean that I don't use automation. I automate some of the boring and repetitive tasks via bash and python.

More practice, less theory (but not 0 theory)

In the past, I criticized Top 1% THM who know close to nothing about the real-world aspects of a pentest.

My point was not understood and I got a lot of hate for it. Image
1. Again, there's less value in being Top 1% if your experience is purely theoretical.

Yet, you will go way further if you complement your experience (from day-to-day work in cybersecurity) with continuous practice on THM and other platforms (focusing on non-CTFish materials).
2. If you're not working in cybersecurity yet, but you want to, no problem.

I pet a cat today and now my allergies are killing me, so obviously this calls for a follow up of, hey you found some #aws creds, what to do meow:

#cloud #hacking #Recon
Step 1: First you gotta decide if this is more of a lazy space vibe kinda thing (A), or (B) calls for some illegal dirty acidcore and adjust your playlist accordingly:
next drop the keys in your .aws creds file. I typically name the first set initial and work with the --profile tag in the cli, so I can keep track on were I am. Then check who you are first, with:
aws sts get-caller-identity --profile initial
