How To Install Android 4.0 VirtualBox

The mobile smartphone and tablet industry seems to have a very prominent divide, with a lot of consumers having their favorite operating system and choosing to stick to hardware which is powered by their chosen OS. Obviously fans of Apple’s iOS use the iPhone and iPad devices, whereas Android lovers have a wide range of hardware to choose from due to the fact that the OS is available to multiple manufacturers.But what happens if you are a die hard fan of iOS, or Windows Phone but you still want to sample the delights that Android Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer? I personally am an iPhone user for the last five years and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. But after recently getting my first taste of Android, I am severely tempted to shell out for a second device so I can have the benefits that both provide. For those that can’t, or won’t, purchase a second device then why not run Android 4.0 in virtualization on your desktop or laptop in order to see the Ice Cream Sandwich experience first hand? Android 4.0 is an operating system in its own right, but instead of running on a dual boot setup, we install and run ICS within a free of charge virtualization application known as VirtualBox. VirtualBox runs like any other application or program on your machine, but offers the benefits of being able to install a secondary OS within it which can be invoked quickly by the user. For all those die hard iOS and Windows Phone fans out there, this is a perfect way to experience the delights of Android.
Are you ready for a whirlwind journey down Ice Cream Sandwich lane? Buckle in and follow the simple steps below.

Step 1: Head over to the official Oracle VM VirtualBox site and download the relevant VirtualBox binary for your computers operating system (Windows/Mac OS X/Linux/Solaris).

Step 2: Find the saved location of the downloaded VirtualBox binary and install as you would with any other native application making sure to follow all on screen prompts and instructions.

Step 3: Head on over to the VMLite website and download a copy of the Ice Cream Sandwich which has been preconfigured for virtualization and features seamless mouse support for navigation. The download weighs in at 88MB in size so may take a while to download depending on your connection.

Step 4: Locate the downloaded ‘Android-v4.7z‘ file and extract the contents from within.

Step 5: Once the Android-v4.7z file has been opened, locate a file from within the archive called ‘Android-v4.vbox‘ which as you can tell by the file extension is a pre configured VirtualBox file.

Step 6: Double click on the Android-v4.vbox file which will load the VirtualBox application and boot up the ICS file.

Step 7: When the boot menu is presented in VirtualBox, press ‘start‘ on the top toolbar and then if required select the ‘Android Startup from /dev/sda‘ option.

Step 8: All steps are complete. Android 4.0 ICS should now be booting up allowing you to enjoy that Android goodness.

Windows and Linux users may find that an alternative, specific version Android 4.0 may be required, which can be found by visting the Android-x86 page. The performance of the Android ICS virtual installation will obviously not be as smooth as intended on an actual device built for purpose, but it does give a feel of the OS with apps being able to launch as well as widget customization.

BFT- Browser forensic tool

This software is an advanced local browser history search engine, in less than few seconds it will extract the chosen keywords of most famous web browser, actually Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox and Opera.
The program will attempt to find the keyword(s) in the history title and search, if the keyword is present or suspected to be, it will be display in the result list with his URL and Title.
The software also give you the possibility to edit the default keywords and of course add / modify your own keywords, to separate keywords subject you can create your own keywords categories and only scan for some keywords in the chosen category .
The program is fully asynchronous so it won't affect your work during the scan time nor it will block the customization of keywords and keylist and can be canceled at anytime.
Notice that this software will in any case alter the data, it will just open in read only and in background all history even if archived.
This software was coded by DarkCoderSc (Jean-Pierre LESUEUR) using Delphi XE (Object Pascal IDE) and is fully FREE. Feel free to contact me for giving a feedback and report bugs or suggestions.

CAINE 2.5.1 (SuperNova) A GNU/Linux Live Distribution

CAINE (Computer Aided INvestigative Environment) is an Italian GNU/Linux live distribution created as a project of Digital Forensics 
Currently the project manager is Nanni Bassetti
CAINE offers a complete forensic environment that is organized to integrate existing software tools as software modules and to provide a friendly graphical interface.
The main design objectives that CAINE aims to guarantee are the following:
an interoperable environment that supports the digital investigator during the four phases of the digital investigation
a user friendly graphical interface
a semi-automated compilation of the final report
We recommend you to read the page on the CAINE policies carefully.
CAINE represents fully the spirit of the Open Source philosophy, because the project is completely open, everyone could take the legacy of the previous developer or project manager. The distro is open source, the Windows side (Wintaylor) is open source and, the last but not the least, the distro is installable, so giving the opportunity to rebuild it in a new brand version, so giving a long life to this project ....

CHANGELOG CAINE 2.5.1 "SuperNova"
Kernel 2.6-32.35 
ZFS Fuse 
exFat support 
Epiphany browser 
new mounter 
new TSK (Sleuthkit)
some fixings
NOMODESET in starting menu 
Reporting by Caine Interface fixed 
Raid utils e bridge utils 
Widows Side:
Wintaylor updated & upgraded

RBFstab and Mounter
1) "rbfstab" is a utility that is activated during boot or when a device is plugged.  It writes read-only entries to /etc/fstab so devices are safely mounted for forensic imaging/examination.  It is self installing with 'rbfstab -i' and can be disabled with 'rbfstab -r'.  It contains many improvements over past rebuildfstab incarnations.  Rebuildfstab is a traditional means for read-only mounting in forensics-orient distributions.
2) "mounter" is a GUI mounting tool that sits in the system tray.  Left clicking the system tray drive icon activates a window where the user can select devices to mount or un-mount.  With rbfstab activated, all devices, except those with volume label "RBFSTAB", are mounted read-only.  Mounting of block devices in Nautilus (file browser) is not possible for a normal user with rbfstab activated making mounter a consistent interface for users.
by John Lehr 
Live Preview Nautilus Scripts

CAINE includes scripts activated within the Nautilus web browser designed to make examination of allocated files simple. Currently, the scripts can render many databases, internet histories, Windows registries, deleted files, and extract EXIF data to text files for easy examination. The Quick View tool automates this process by determining the file type and rendering with the appropriate tool. 
The live preview Nautilus scripts also provide easy access to administrative functions, such as making an attached device writeable, dropping to the shell, or opening a Nautilus window with administrator privileges. The "Save as Evidence" script will write the selected file(s) to an "Evidence" folder on the desktop and create a text report about the file containing file metadata and an investigator comment, if desired. 
A unique script, "Identify iPod Owner", is included in the toolset. This script will detect an attached and mounted iPod Device, display metadata about the device (current username, device serial number, etc.). The investigator has the option to search allocated media files and unallocated space for iTunes user information present in media purchased through the Apple iTunes store, i.e., Real Name and email address. 
The live preview scripts are a work in progress. Many more scripts are possible as are improvements to the existing scripts. The CAINE developers welcome feature requests, bug reports, and critiques. 
The preview scripts were born of a desire to make evidence extraction simple for any investigator with basic computer skills. They allow the investigator to get basic evidence to support the investigation without the need of advanced computer forensics training or waiting upon a computer forensics lab. Computer forensics labs can used the scripts for device triage and the remainder of the CAINE toolset for a full forensic examination! 
John Lehr
The patch changes the way how Casper searches for the boot media. By default, Casper will look at hard disk drives, CD/DVD-drives and some other devices while booting the system (during the stage when system tries to find the boot media with correct root file system image on it - because common bootloaders do not pass any data about media used for booting to an operating system in Live CD configurations). Our patch is implemented for CD/DVD versions of CAINE and enables CD/DVD-only checks in Casper. This solves the bug when Casper would select and boot fake root file system images on evidentiary media (hard disk drives, etc). ------------

Remote File Inclusion (RFI) – Tutorial

What is RFI ?
RFI stands for Remote File Inclusion, examples of RFI is the bloated “C99″ script.As good as this script is, its not practical its too big and fills the access logs like a jew. Its highly noticeable.
What is the point in it?
Contrary to popular belief, not all website is hacking is SQL  RFI is great because you can get access too and edit all files on the server it makes defacements and stealing classified material as easy as … wget?
What do I need to be able to do this?
Well basically, a web browser, a simple PHP RFI Script (Will teach you a simple one) and some basic knowledge of BASH (Most servers are linux/unix so you might need this .
Lets go
Okay! So, to start with we need a vulnerable site… How do you find these? Well a g00gle d0rk can help you … Alot. RFI’s work by tricking the server into downloading and executing code thats not actually on it, say a website was
This could be a site that pulls in .txt documents to display as pages, very very insecure yet people still do it. Anyway, this either uses the PHP include function we can exploit this… How?
Now this could work, it could work quite well. If the site is vulnerable something would happen but I will get into what in a minute.
So, you might of noticed that I added the .txt extension, this might not work as the ?page=about had no .txt extension. This could be because the script automatically appends the .txt file extension (the error you will get is something about it not being able to include ourscript.txt.txt), now as it is appending .txt we can just put ourscript and it will still work, however if it auto-appends something along the lines of .php then we have to use a null byte which is .
Okay, so what do we actually put into ourscript.txt before we do this? Well it could be something like the C99, but unless that script is uploaded instead of included you will get a ton of errors and none of the features will work so instead we have to build our own little script to get this baby working.
Code :

echo "<script>alert(1337);</script>";
echo "Executing command: ".htmlspecialchars($_GET['cmd']);

Something like that will work, as we can send a command to the linux/unix server in bash as well as testing if its RFI vulnerable with the alert box.
Ok, so if it worked we are in luck as we can now send a few commands to the server.
To start with lets try and list all the documents in the current directory. Anyone who knows any bash will know that the list command is ls not dir.
So we do:
That then sends the cmd that we put into our script, and starts to list the documents… This is great! Now we can do anything now, anything at all we can deface the current page using something as simple as
cmd=echo This site got pwn3d by hacker > index.php
That will re-write the index.php and pwn it (Or in the case of a website with .txt extensions you will want to put this into one of the .txt files)
We can download, remove, rename, anything! But that means you need to know some bash. In case you don’t, not all is lost! You can use the ‘wget’ function to download a c99 script.
Ok so how do we do that?
now as a .txt the script is going to be useless, well we could use some LFI but we aren’t going to we are just going to rename it!
cmd=mv c99.txt hacked.php
Now by just going to hacked.php the C99 will work and the site can be pwned that way.
This is just a simple tutorial, not too advanced. Its meant to give an overview of RFI, not a complete guide

How To Upload Shell And Deface – Tutorial

What we need:
1-A Shell (Will be provided)
2-A website vulnerable to SQLi
3-Image or File upload area on that Vulnerable website
So firstly download the shell here.
What is Shell ?
A shell script is a script written for the shell, or command line interpreter, of an operating system. It is often considered a simple domain-specific programming language. Typical operations performed by shell scripts include file manipulation, program execution, and printing text.
This is a plain c99 shell, BUT it is Undetected so you should not get a warning from a anti virus if you download it. (update: not Undetected anymore )
I am not going to explain SQLi just how to deface.
So now go get yourself a vulnerable site, hack it and get the Admin Login details and get the Admin Page address.
Now login to the admin page with the admin details you got.
Go through the admin page until you find a place where you can upload a picture (Usually a picture).
Now you have to upload the shell. Right if you don’t get an error it is all good.
Now to find the shell
Go through the site until you find any image and if you are using firefox Right
- Click on it and “Copy Image Location”
Make a new tab and paste it there.
It will probably look something like this:
So now that we know that change “/photonamehere.jpg” to “/c99ud.php.jpg” (Without Qoutes)
Now a page will come up looking like this:
igz03k How To Upload Shell and Deface   Tutorial
Does probably not look like that but will look similar.
Now you have access to all the files on the site
What you want to do is now,
Find index.php or whatever the main page is, and replace it with your HTML code for your Deface Page.
Then you can either delete all the other files OR (and I recommend this) Let it redirect to the main page.
Keep in mind:
• Change Admin Username and Password
•The people have FTP access so you need to change that Password too .
•Always use a Proxy or VPN

Hacking SMTP Mail Gateways

Mail Servers: They have their own language
There are many types and brands of e-mail servers used on the Internet. There's Sendmail, been around for a long time and typically used on UNIX systems, Microsoft Exchange, a Microsoft product of course, and GroupWise, a Novell product, just to name a few.
Regardless of the services and options each flavor of mail server offers you, they all have one thing in common. They must abide by the rules of the SMTP communications standards, and in effect, speak a common language. If you want to know more about this, read the SMTP "Request For Comment" , or RFC located here.
e-mail relaying

SMTP Mail Relaying and Social Engineering

Mail Relaying: What's the big deal?
Although not a traditional vulnerability, one of the most common forms of SMTP misuse is email relaying, or email spoofing. This method is routinely used by spammers to distribute their unwanted, and unsolicited information. In many cases, they setup their own mail servers, configured to allow mail relaying. However, if your smtp gateway is not setup to prevent mail relay, the spammers will kindly use it. This is a very simple procedure and in most cases is completely automated.

Social Engineering Attack by E-mail
Another common use of email relay and spoofing is social engineering attacks. We recently performed a security assessment for an organizing where we were permitted to perform social engineering and denial-of-service attacks. It turned out that this company's SMTP server was not configured to prevent email relaying. We attached to the SMTP gateway from the Internet, spoofed the e-mail address of one of the IT people, and sent an e-mail to ten end-users instructing them to "Shutdown their computers immediately because the IT team had detected a serious virus / or worm on their computer". All ten of the users did exactly as we asked. Imagine if we sent this e-mail to the "everyone" e-mail distribution group. Probably would not have been a good day for the IT folks.
I want to make the point that I am writing this article for the purpose of education and awareness. The purpose is NOT to provide someone the information needed to abuse SMTP services.

Speaking the SMTP Language

The Basics of Hacking SMTP Gateways and Communications

There are a handful of methods in direct SMTP communication but for the sake of this article we will only review a few items.  These items, if the SMTP gateway you are attached to allows mail relaying, is all that is needed to successfully email spoof or e-mail relay.
  • Our Target: "";
  • Our Tool: The good ole "telnet: client;
  • Our Objective: Determine if mail relay is possible and execute it.
The following are the six commands (or steps) we will use to check for and execute a mail relay:
  1. "telnet": A communications client used to connect to the SMTP port 25 on the target mail server;
  2. "helo": SMTP command used to introduce ourselves to the SMTP server
  3. "mail from:": SMTP command to identify who mail will be sent from
  4. "rcpt to:": SMTP command telling the mail server who to send the e-mail too;
  5. "data": SMTP command that instructs the mail server that the text typed after this command is the body of our message;
  6. "(enter).(enter)": When we are finished writing our message we will hit the (enter) button, the period".", then another (enter) and the mail will be queued for delivery

Action: "telnet 25": Connect to our SMTP gateway, on port 25, using the telnet client" Response: "220 Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 5.0.2195.6713 ready at Mon, 11 Apr 2005 11:15:50 -0400"
Result: You successfully connected to the Server!
Action: "helo": say hello to the gateway Response: "250 [10.1.1.x]"
Result: The gateway greets you!
Action: "rcpt to:": Who are we sending the e-mail to? Response: "250 2.1.5"
Result: We are close to sending our spoofed e-mail message!!!Action: "data (then hit enter)": Tell the smtp server we are writing our message next!
Response: "354 Start mail input; end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>": The mail server is telling us to write our message then type "enter" a period ".", then "enter" again
Result: You type your message
Action: "(Hit enter) type "." (Hit enter)": Tell the smtp server we are finished writing our message!
Response: "250 2.6.0 <smtpmailserver> Queued mail for delivery"
Result: The SMTP mail server has just accepted your e-mail for delivery and has queued it for sending!


Automating The Process
As you can see, this process is pretty strait forward. Automating the process is quite simple and can be done by writing a script in any number of languages. A script designed to send out mass mail can do so very quickly and efficiently. If you or your companies mail server were to be a target of email relay, it could cause you a lot of trouble. It may even overwhelm your mail server to the point of causing a denial-of-service attack. Effectively preventing you from sending legitimate mail.

Securing Your Mail Server
Preventing mail relay is usually pretty easy to do. On some mail servers it's as easy as checking off a button. Others require a little more effort. For information regarding securing the few e-mail servers I mentioned above you can review the following links:

Microsoft Exchange: Securing Exchange Communications
Novell GroupWise: Secure Message Concepts
