Earth Magnetic Field and Earthquakes Related

Chilean physicists found a direct relation between earthquakes and the earth magnetic field. The study used more than 50 years of hard data and could be used in a near future to predict earthquakes with up to 48 hours in advance. – science

Benjamin Delphy on Kekeo, successor to mimikatz. (Video)

BlueHat IL 2019 – Benjamin Delpy (@gentilkiwi) – You (dis)liked mimikatz? Wait for kekeo – YouTube

From the comments: 

“If you enjoyed playing with Kerberos, ASN1, security providers…, then you’ll love adopting this furry, sweet animal. From its birth with MS14-068 to cleartext passwords without local administrator rights, you’ll know everything about this animal. This talk will embed CredSSP and TSSP with cleartext credential, explore a little bit about PKINITMustiness and the RSA-on-the-fly for Kerberos with PKI!”

Mimikatz on Windows Server 2019… nice music.

DoktorCranium is fiddling around with Windows Server 2019 Insider Preview Build 17650 and Mimikatz, a security tool used by hackers e.g. for intruding the German parliament, the Bundestag in 2015/2016 . “Bypassing Windows Defender, Loading meterpreter, and executing the latest Mimikatz just for fun.” Why? Because he can. And Open Source rocks. I still find it hard to believe so many security-sensitive environments still use software from the shelf. And if you like Benjamin Delphy’s work, look at this video about Kekeo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sROKCsXdVDg

TBL on 30 years of Web: A contract for the Web

Tim Berners-Lee speaking at the launch of the World Wide Web Foundation

In his blogpost “30 years on, what’s next #ForTheWeb?” Tim Berners-Lee shows clear thoughts on the problems of the Web today and points to the “Contract for the Web”. He writes:

“To tackle any problem, we must clearly outline and understand it. I broadly see three sources of dysfunction affecting today’s web:

  • Deliberate, malicious intent, such as state-sponsored hacking and attacks, criminal behaviour, and online harassment.
  • System design that creates perverse incentives where user value is sacrificed, such as ad-based revenue models that commercially reward clickbait and the viral spread of misinformation.
  • Unintended negative consequences of benevolent design, such as the outraged and polarised tone and quality of online discourse.

(…)

At pivotal moments, generations before us have stepped up to work together for a better future. With the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, diverse groups of people have been able to agree on essential principles. With the Law of Sea and the Outer Space Treaty, we have preserved new frontiers for the common good. Now too, as the web reshapes our world, we have a responsibility to make sure it is recognised as a human right and built for the public good. This is why the Web Foundation is working with governments, companies and citizens to build a new Contract for the Web.”
