  • Cross-platform hotkeys and hotstrings?
    2 projects | | 21 Feb 2022
    If you needed a cross-platform solution today, I would recommend looking into Python and some of its related ecosystem, such as the keyboard package, which provides cross-platform hotkey support and keyboard automation, including 'word listeners' and its companion module mouse.

    And here are some libraries that might pique your interest although they don't strictly answer your question: - tqdm for adding a progress bar on for loops (it comes with useful information like iteration per second and estimated time needed to finish) - alive_progress adds a progress bar like tqdm, but it works even with generators and while loops which I don't think tqdm does. -timebudget, with just a decorator as soon as a function is completed it prints the time taken to execute it - send2trash for sending files to the trash bin instead of permanently deleting them - keyboard for sending keyboard inputs or check if a key is pressed - mouse same as keyboard but with mouse buttons - textract for extracting text from many types of file with a single interface. It supports documents, powerpoint presentations, csv, excels, images, gifs, audio, and many more

    I'd imagine you could use scapy to open the pcap file and analyse the contents. Presumably you could tell from DNS packets what hosts they looked up, and from HTTP traffic what search terms were POSTed or passed via URL. Not much help for HTTPS though

    But, due to the young ecosystem, Rust isn't often the best choice for the 2nd category. There are exceptions: while working on a ROP exploitation CLI tool, I was surprised to find the top 3 fastest x86-64 disassemblers are all written in Rust. But other languages just have more mature security ecosystems. Python in particular has some amazing libraries like scapy and bindings for yara.

  • Scapy
    1 project | | 19 Nov 2021
    Scapy is a powerful, interactive Python2/3 packet-manipulation program that can forge or decode packets for a wide array of protocols, send & capture them, match requests with replies and more. Easily handles tasks like scanning, tracerouting, probing, unit tests, attacks and network discovery so it can replace hping, most of nmap, arpspoof, arp-sk, arping, tcpdump, tshark, p0f, etc. Also performs specific tasks most other tools can’t handle, like sending invalid frames, injecting your own 802.11 frames and combining technics. Our thanks for this suggestion go to lazyjk.

  • Sending malformed ip address to http server?
    1 project | | 2 Sep 2021
    You can spoof your IP with scapy, etc, but you would not be able to complete a TCP handshake.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing mouse and scapy you can also consider the following projects:

pyshark - Python wrapper for tshark, allowing python packet parsing using wireshark dissectors

pySerial - Python serial port access library

keyboard - Hook and simulate global keyboard events on Windows and Linux.

RustScan - 🤖 The Modern Port Scanner 🤖


PyUserInput - A module for cross-platform control of the mouse and keyboard in python that is simple to install and use.

node_pcap - libpcap bindings for node

Astro Pi - Team Jakopičevca - Programs for Astro Pi - Mission Space Lab - Team Jakopičevca

nfstream - NFStream: a Flexible Network Data Analysis Framework.
