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.

Want to improve your network scanning skills with Nmap? 🕵️‍♀️💻

Check out these 5 quick tips to define targets, speed up scans, and scan with specific script categories! 🧵👇

#recon #recontips #AttackSurface #bugbounty #recontools #cybersecurity
1/5 Let's start with how to define targets.

Define targets for nmap scan by specifying IP addresses, IP ranges, domain names, or using a target list file.

$ nmap <IP1> <IP2> …
$ nmap
$ nmap <domain name>
$ nmap -iL <target list file>
2/5 The Ippsec scan for basic coverage.

Perform a comprehensive network scan using nmap's Ippsec initial scan.

😱 I asked ChatGPT "What are some of the unpopular SQL injection areas" and this is what it replied.


#bugbounty #cybersecurity #infosec #sqli
1. Error messages: Sometimes error messages can reveal important information about the application's database, such as table names or column names. An attacker can use this information to craft a SQL injection attack.
2. Search fields: Search fields are often overlooked when testing for SQL injection vulnerabilities, but they can be an easy target for attackers. In un-sanitized search queries, an attacker can inject SQL code to retrieve sensitive data from the database.

"The future of #ChemicalEngineering"

I asked @slidesgpt to create a slide deck on the topic with #AI.

Some might say "pretty generic" again but let me tell you:
At every conference, there are presentations looking at least partially like this.

Let's go through it.

For a start, it is good that @slidegpt warns you that you should have a critical look at the content.

If you want to talk about the future, start with the past. Okay.

It also gives you a comment so that you can just make a karaoke session out of it:

"[...] Understanding this history is important for understanding the current state of the field and predicting its future."

Списання вийшло з-під контролю: Росія зняла зі зберігання Т-54
Команда CIT отримала фотографії потяга, який везе військову техніку з Далекого Сходу. Ми ідентифікували їх як радянські середні танки сімейства Т-54/55: в одному ешелоні були і Т-54, і танки, які могли бути пізніми Т-54 або Т-55 (див. ілюстрацію).
Як стало відомо, нещодавно цей ешелон вирушив з Арсеньєва Приморського краю, де розташована 1295-та центральна база резерву і зберігання танків.

1/ The content below is from a file named install.bat and stems from a recent investigation where a TA launched this batch file. 👀

What's going on?

Well, VboxUpdate.exe is, in fact, tor.exe, and a new service is created, launching tor with a config file.

🧵 #CyberSecurity Image
2/ Below is an excerpt from the content of config.txt; the configuration file passed as an argument to the tor service.

If you think this looks a lot like RDP Tunneling, you are absolutely right. 🥇 Image

This is an attempt to lay out an extensive timeline of events with sources for reference, leading to what the World Economic Forum and World Leaders like to call “The Great Reset”.
I prefer to call this leviathan the BioSecurity State. Its preparation and the infrastructure put into place dates back at least 21 years, although it can be argued it goes back much further.
I realize there are significant historical events I leave out like 9/11 and subsequent wars. I try to focus on key events, stories and documents that builds specifically upon the narrative of pandemics, digital ID, digital currency and cyber security which are interlinked towards……

1/ Real-World #PingCastle Finding #13: Allow log on locally

➡️ Domain Users are eligible to log into DC's 🤯🙈

"When you grant an account the Allow logon locally right, you are allowing that account to log on locally to all domain controllers in the domain." [1]

#CyberSecurity Image
2/ Why is this a bad idea?

"If you do not restrict this user right to legitimate users who must log on to the console of the computer, unauthorized users could download and run malicious software to elevate their privileges." [1]
3/ I encountered this finding several times in our AD assessments, so you better check your settings in your domain right now (better safe than sorry 🔒).

Good luck 🍀

#cybersecurity #pentesting #hacking #DataSecurity

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.

HTTP Parameter Pollution @SecGPT has seen in its training. Image
1. ATO via password reset

The attacker manipulates the HTTP parameters of the password reset page to change the email address associated with the account; then use the password reset link => ATO.
2. Price manipulation in e-commerce platforms

The attacker manipulates the HTTP parameters of an e-commerce website to change the price of a product. The attacker can then purchase the product at a lower price than intended.

1/ #Velociraptor has covered hunting for malicious WMI Event Consumers for some time. [1]

However, Velociraptor does not provide an eradication hunt for malicious WMI Event Consumers out of the box.

🧵 #CyberSecurity
2/ @threatpunter wrote a detailed blog about WMI persistences and how to remove them.

"The simplest method to remove the entry from the WMI database is to use Autoruns. Launch Autoruns as an administrator and select the WMI tab to review WMI-related persistence." ✂️ Image
3/ "Alternatively, you can remove the WMI event subscriptions from the command line." [2] Image

I never rely on automation alone.

In a recent external pentest, I was going over the assets manually, while running some tools in the background, including nuclei.
1. One instance was running a software vulnerable to arbitrary file deletion. Nuclei didn't even smell it, unfortunately.

What I usually do, is to look over famous exploits for the specific software. And this one was a victim.
2. Another instance was running a software vulnerable to RCE. Thanks @infosec_au for the amazing work that help uncover this.

Nuclei has some templates for this, but they didn't catch it.

Similar to #1, I dug deeper manually and confirmed the vulnerabilty.

1/ Number #10 of the #ActiveDirectory hardening measures:

Easy Wins (for Attackers)

🧵 #CyberSecurity
This is the last thread in this AD hardening measure series, but there would still be so much to discuss 😅

Here are more points you should focus on to defend your networks even better.
"Administrative accounts should never be enabled for delegation.

You can prevent these privileged accounts from being targeted by enabling the ‘Account is sensitive and cannot be delegated’ flag on them. You can optionally add these accounts to the ‘Protected Users’ group.

🚨🔍👨‍💻🛡️ I got few questions about what a Detection Engineers does. Daily tasks range from monitoring security systems to designing and developing detection logic? Here are some common tasks that I perform on given day #Cybersecurity #DetectionEngineer #SecurityOperations #SIEM
1️⃣ Building SIEM Architecture

Some detection engineers build SIEM architecture to collect, process, store, analyze, and respond to security-related data from various sources to identify potential security threats and alerts the security team.
2️⃣ Monitoring Security Systems

Detection engineers monitor security systems, review logs/alerts/reports, identify potential threats, and investigate suspicious activities. Essential in security ops.
