20 theses on #Ukraine/#Russia: recap.
1 We must act not only for Ukraine to win, completely, but also for Russia to lose, fully.
Let's stop fearing a collapse of Russia (which some weak minds are more worried about than Ukraine's victory).
A #Thread

2 There can be neither negotiations (apart from one-off issues like prisoner exchanges) with Putin's regime, nor peace talks.
Any hint of this weakens us.
3 The discourse in favor of such discussions, such as "we will have to sit down at the negotiating table", is either a sign of ignorance of the danger of this regime, or a propaganda narrative.
It would lead to a betrayal of our commitments to Ukraine and put us in danger.

Quick #tip for anyone doing #WebDevelopment for #Business: *Always* check what sites look like with #Javascript turned off! 👍

I just saw one with a business tracker which - Because I have JS off - Suggested the company hadn't done any satisfactory business in 10+ years! 😳

In this case the tracker counts satisfied customers, completed projects and metres of material produced, all defaulted to zero and updated by the JS. 📥

Because JS wasn't running the zero defaults were shown instead, and this definitely isn't a good look for the company! 🏢📉😳
Although JS is commonplace, it should never be relied upon for #MissionCritical things. In todays resource-scarce climate every little must be conserved, and for some of us that even extends to blocking JS - Which is also a valid #Security measure. Especially for Govt users!

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Dozens of men from the entourage of #Russian President Vladimir #Putin can beat their heads against a concrete wall of distrust, trying to get the head of state to make this or that decision.
And two women, having said or written a few words, force the President to refuse or, at least, postpone the implementation of decisions already made.
Last Thursday, the Chairman of the Russian Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, was confidentially conveyed the President's decision to declare partial mobilization and martial law in seven constituent entities of #Russia and offered to prepare to act in "new conditions."

#Russia’s war on #Ukraine is likely to last many years, even if the violence may subside at times. #RussiaUkraineWar
To sustain Ukraine during this conflict, Europeans should draw up a four-part ‘#longwar plan’.
This plan would comprise #militaryassistance to Ukraine in the form of a ‘#security compact’; security assurances that respond to scenarios of Russian escalation; economic support, giving Ukraine access to the #EUsinglemarket; and help to secure Ukraine’s #energysupply.

#Learn365 - Day 1⃣ 7⃣

Since we are talking about Polyglots, today I have SQLi Polyglot for you.
A context insensitive sqli payload polyglot, a thread. 🧵👇

#infosec #appsec #bugbountytips #security Image
When it comes to SQLi, the SQli polygot is the payload that runs in context of ' (single quote) and " (double quote).

SLEEP(1) /*' or SLEEP(1) or'" or SLEEP(1) or "*/

Will execute in both the contexts.
How ?

Let's see next.
MYSQL_QUERY = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = '<input>'" ;

Would turn into

MYSQL_QUERY = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = 'SLEEP(1) /*' or SLEEP(1) or '" or SLEEP(1) or "*/" '";

Carefully observe, the Payload is happy. Image

Blockchain & Smart Contract Security #11
Secure Account Existence check for Low-level Calls
A thread and a blogpost @SolidityScan Also read about "King of Ethers" contract hack.…

#blockchain #security #smartcontracts #SOLIDITY
What are low-level calls?
Low-level calls are methods that work on raw addresses to call other contracts' functions in Solidity. "call", "delegatecall", "callcode", "send", "transfer", etc are some examples of low-level functions
The call() method allows you to call any function you want on the address specified, and if the function is implemented on that address, it will be executed.

Can write single Exploit payload which can exploit both HTML and JS injection in this ?

Yes we can, they are POLYGLOT payloads.
A context sensitive injection payloads, a thread. 🧵👇

#infosec #appsec #bugbountytips #security Image
Polyglot payloads capable of executing in multiple contexts.

A simple Example:
Input is flowing through HTML and JavaScript contenxt both and HTML is executed first then JS.

If you design the payload with JS context, HTML parse would fail, and XSS wont execute.
Which means you have to design your payload which can pass both the contexts and still execute.

In above case there are two contexts,


First HTML context is executed.

Lets take a look at the payload now.

This is your forewarning. #TikTok has reportedly suffered a #data #breach, and if true there may be fallout from it in the coming days. We recommend you change your TikTok #password and enable Two-Factor Authentication, if you have not done so already.

A #Twitter whistleblower’s allegations that the Indian government forced the company to hire at least one individual who was a government agent and had access to user data, should be taken seriously, warn experts in the #technology and #policy sectors.…
@MishiChoudhary, founder of @SFLCin says that the more someone knows about a user, the more power they have over them. “Personal data is used to make a variety of decisions in and about our lives: jobs, government benefits, relationships & insurance are just a few of them.”
“Personal data can be used to affect our reputations and shape our behaviour,” says @MishiChoudhary

Accusing #Twitter of playing all sides she says, “By filing a lawsuit in Karnataka, it can appease its users, ‘look here, we are fighting for your rights. ’ ”

#Learn365 - Day 6⃣

Can you identify and exploit the #security bug? 🤔

In today's thread lets learn about exploit writing 🧵👇

#infosec #appsec #bugbountytips #security
This is SQLi. easy to guess. Which field is vulnerable : username.

But the tricky part is how to exploit it.
If you disect the code, you would notice that SQL statement should always return one single word. Otherwise comparison will anyway fail in PHP code.

What next ?
What do you think will happen if I input :

" or 1=1;--

Think first !!
This will make SQL return entire password column.
Inturn, PHP check will fail at line #2.

So, you have to make SQL statement return 1 single word, and that should be password which u can match.

SOP 🫧, Same Origin Policy.
A browser security framework that every #hacker should know.

Know what is it in this thread 🧵👇

#infosec #security #appsec #cybersecurity #SOP #http Image
SOP is browser security model, and I find lot of folks out there, who still dont understand it in and out.
Let me cover it here, in few threads.

Let's Start.
It is a browser security model 🔥. Now what does that means ?
It simply means this control is enforced by browser to make user visiting a site more secure from attackers.

Browser creates virtual boundaries to segregate sites and this boundary is identified with ORIGINS.

Agri culture in India involved raising livestock to support farming, for milk and meat, and also to support the leather industry. It has evolved over millennia and weathered quite a variety of challenges: socio-political and environmental. 1/15
Caste was exploited. In post independent India it was eminently possible to attack caste based occupation & discrimination in farming and livestock rearing, without destroying millennia old knowledge that constituted agriculture. The opportunity was forfeited. 2/15
First by the Congress pandering to upper caste pressures, and now BJP, have targeted livestock rearing and turned the farms and livestock into a battle of political ideologies. 3/15

With the speculation around #TheMerge turning #ether into a #security, it's important to understand:
- what the conditions for ruling sth a 'security' are; and
- what this will mean for miners, DeFi protocols, and DAOs.

Context: #Ethereum is moving from a proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake system, where ppl need to invest/stake in capital to validate new blocks. Anchored in the Howey Test, professor @AdamLevitin argued that this transition will likely turn ether into a security.
Howey Test validates whether a sales/transaction is considered a security and should fall under its law. Its validator components include:
1. Investment of money
2. In a common enterprise
3. With an expectation of profits
4. Solely from the efforts of the promoter/a third party

With everything that is happening with the blacklisting of tornado cash, #USDC and #USDT. With all the Risks of centralized exchanges becoming obvious after #Celsius. And with #Terra showing us what can happen with faulty designs…
I would like to explain a little about the @RSKsmart (#Rootstock) ecosystem and why I am such a big believer in it.
Firstly, it is secured by the #Bitcoin miners
Secondly, almost all the fees get paid to the #BTC miners, making the main chain stronger
The native token is backed 1:1 with #BTC, it follows its price action. And can be converted back and forth at any time.
It is accurate to state that the entire #Rootstock (@RSKsmart ) network is designed from the ground up to make #Bitcoin stronger

The worst thing about the ongoing @solana @phantom/@slope_finance hack is that people don't even understand yet how screwed they are. Here's why this is worse than it seems, and a clear way we #web3 citizens can prevent this in the future👇
#solana #security #decentralization Image
First, a few misunderstandings out of the way.
This is not Solana team's fault: other wallets don't seem to be attacked
We also truly feel for the affected ones that are sad right now, and we hate to stomp on their hope.
But this is an important topic that has to be discussed
The worst possible calamity that can happen to a network is the leaks of private keys/seed phrases. Why? Imagine the best possible outcome. Let's say @aeyakovenko decides to reverse the chain and refund the stolen balances back to their owners. And let's skip the side effects Image
