FGscanner is available for Download

Hi All!
I finally completed FGscanner  :)
FGscanner is a perl script useful for finding directories that are not indexed, hidden pages, development or test folders on a webserver. The script works in dictionary attack mode using two files (fg_dirs and fg_pages) and can be redirect via proxy or tor network if there is a tor daemon running on your system.

The project is hosted on GitHub and you can download it here.

This is the initial release and any comment, contribution or suggestion is more than welcome ! :)

 

Check systems security with Lynis

How many times have you wondered about your systems security ? Using Linux or Mac is not enough! You must check and configure your systems to be as secure as possible. To do this we can use Lynis, a command-line utility to check  system(s) against malware, system misconfigurations, systems integrity, etc…
Lynis is easy to install and is available for Debian like and RedHat like distros, FreeBSD and MacOSX. 

As well explained on rootkit.nl website “Lynis is an auditing tool for Unix (specialists). It scans the system and available software, to detect security issues. Beside security related information it will also scan for general system information, installed packages and configuration mistakes.

This software aims in assisting automated auditing, software patch management, vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix based systems. It can be run without prior installation, so inclusion on read only storage is no problem (USB stick, cd/dvd).

Lynis assists auditors in performing Basel II, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI DSS and SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley) compliance audits.”

In this article I’ll show you how to install and run Lynis on your PC.

The hidden side of Internet: access it anonymously with FreeNet

Every time we access an Internet resource (web, mail, IRC, etc…) our ADSL modem or router is connected “directly”: all packets transmitted by our computer are addressed via routers and switches across the net to their final destination.
Every time our packets pass through a network device, someone could read, analyze, intercept and hijack our communications.
In order to avoid this and protect our information, our identity and our connections we can use the widely downloaded software FreeNet.
Using Freenet we can access anonymous resources across the internet, using a decentralized encrypted network or we can create our private network between friends to chat, share information and messages.
