    RobOHara.com | 1 Dec 2016 | 6:00am CST

    Susan and I are sticklers for eating at local restaurants while away from home. McDonald’s is McDonald’s no matter where you go, but local restaurants are where you find the local food and local flavor. Most often, it’s where you’ll find the local people, too. This past summer while vacationing in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, we ate...

    RobOHara.com | 30 Nov 2016 | 6:00pm CST

    I have never been a comic book guy, neither as a kid nor as an adult. I can easily count on one hand all my childhood memories involving comic books. My great Grandma Brown had a small stack of them in her living room that I used to flip through each time we visited. One...

    RobOHara.com | 26 Nov 2016 | 8:07am CST

I’ve attended college for lots of reasons over the years — because I wanted to start something, because...

    RobOHara.com | 18 Nov 2016 | 3:30pm CST

    When I was a kid, I absolutely loved joke books. I loved reading jokes and telling them to my friends, although I usually forgot them almost as quickly as I read them.

  10. On Nation States and Sophistication

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 6 Nov 2016 | 5:39pm CST

    Thomas Ptacek made an interesting tweet today about Nation States, and if the term has any meaning, which got me thinking. In light of the numerous breaches that have been occurring, affecting both commerce, government, and potentially even elections, I decided to take some time to write down my thoughts on some of the subjects that come up when these events occur. First lets talk about victim psychology. When a person or an organization is hacked, they go through similar emotions to victims of...

  11. Exporting workspaces from your MSF database

    :Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 13 Aug 2016 | 6:48pm CDT

    Quick and dirty hack to export all your findings/host/services/etc and creds from your metasploit databaseNormally you'd do this with a:workspace myworkspacedb_export -f xml -a /path/to/file.xmldb_export -f pwdump -a /path/to/file.pwdumpThis can be tedious if you want to spin down an instance with tons of workspaces on it. So I wrote a quick resource script to get it done. This takes a list of workspaces. I'm sure you can programmatically retrieve the workspaces but I didn't. Code below...

    Security is a boomin’, and so there are many different appliances to protect your network. Some of them do very little to protect, some of them open new holes in your network.In line with best practice, many Security teams capture all network traffic using a variety of solutions, some closed, some open source. Once the traffic is stored, it can be used to detect badness, or just examine traffic patterns on corporate assets.One of these open source options is NTOP, which of course has an ap...
