*** Fingerprinting Ubuntu OS Versions using OpenSSH ***
---------------------------------------------
Over the past couples weeks, I’ve been working on enhancing the operating system detection logic in the TrustKeeper Scan Engine.  Having the capability to detect a target’s operating system can be very useful. Whether you’re performing a simple asset identification scan or doing an in depth review, this information helps you make more informed decisions. In this blog post, I’ll be talking about a technique that that you can use to fingerprint a server operating system

*** Vuln: osCommerce products_id Parameter HTML Injection Vulnerability ***
---------------------------------------------
osCommerce is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.
Hostile HTML and script code may be injected into vulnerable sections of the application. When an unsuspecting user visits the affected site and views the affected section, the attacker-supplied code is rendered in the user's browser in the context of that site.
osCommerce 2.3.3 is vulnerable. Other versions may also be affected.

*** We scanned the Internet for port 22 ***
---------------------------------------------
We scanned the entire Internet for port 22 - the port reserved for SSH, the protocol used by sysadmins to remotely log into machines. Unlike our normal scans of port 80 or 443, this generated a lot more abuse complaints, so I thought Id explain the scan.

*** Blog: Pharmaceutical ‘phishing’ ***
---------------------------------------------
Adverts for medication to improve male sex drive are a staple of spam mailings. Like any other unsolicited messages, emails of this nature have evolved with time and today’s versions no longer merely contain promises of enahnced potency and a link to a site selling pills. In August and September we noted a series of mailings that used the names of well-known companies, that looked just like typical phishing messages. However, instead of a phishing site the links they contained led to an advert for “male medication”.
