[HACK]IN(SIGHT) - VOL 1 NO.20
Malware writers are able to exploit zero-day vulnerabilities through several different attack vectors. Web browsers are a particular target because of their widespread distribution and usage. Attackers can also send e-mail attachments, which exploit vulnerabilities in the application opening the attachment. Exploits that take advantage of common file types are listed in databases like US-CERT. Malware can be engineered to take advantage of these file type exploits to compromise attacked systems or steal confidential data such as banking passwords and personal identity information.
In addition to the main theme of our twentieth edition also includes 4 technical articles concerning practical usage of: Paros Proxy, VEGA - Web Application Scanner and Proxy Strike.
We hope that you will find it interesting.
Enjoy the hacking!
