  • fastjson

    FASTJSON 2.0.x has been released, faster and more secure, recommend you upgrade.

    Project mention: [Release] Java Tron GreatVoyage-v4.4.6 (David) | | 2022-05-25

    Update for a security vulnerability in fastjson improvements are suggested:

  • ysoserial

    A proof-of-concept tool for generating payloads that exploit unsafe Java object deserialization.

    Project mention: Java deserialization payloads in log4j (Unified starting point) | | 2022-12-23

    So I've finished the unified box in stage 2 of the starting point and have tons of questions about the box. In the box they use veracode-research/rogue-jndi to exploit the log4j vulnerability. But when I test it with deserialize payload generated by frohoff/ysoserial it's not running. I've try to look at the java log in the challenge container but can't find anything that java complain or error out. Is it because the ysoserial payload too complex that it running but fail at some point and don't throw error or maybe the author just hard code so that only the payload from rogue-jndi work? can it's because of the java version/framework/library/weirdness? Do I need to test both kind of payload if I want to exploit log4j in the future or just stick with pimps/JNDI-Expoit-Kit or cckuailong/JNDI-Injection_Exploit-Plus (my senior recommendation when exploiting log4j).

  • jsoniter

    jsoniter (json-iterator) is fast and flexible JSON parser available in Java and Go (by json-iterator)

    Project mention: Why is json logging the “standard”? | | 2023-03-10

    If JSON decoding ever becomes a bottleneck, use . Even fhe drop-in replacement API is faster than the stdlib. If you need absolute insane performance, use the streaming API.

    Project mention: What is the fastest way to encode the arbitrary struct into bytes? | | 2023-03-02

    so appreciate such a detailed reply, thanks. btw, why did you choose tinylib/msgp from 4 available go-impls?
