    Project mention: Discrepancies in detecting obfuscated payloads by Windows Defender? | reddit.com/r/hacking | 2022-09-28

    After that I expanded my research and tried a payload from GitHub user samratashok and followed this Guide in which only the text encoding method is altered from ASCII to UTF8. And guess what? It actually worked, Windows Defender does not detect it!

    Project mention: Ciphers... Edge... I wanna AES256 SHA384 only | reddit.com/r/MicrosoftEdge | 2022-09-26

    I use a tool called Hardening-Kitty https://github.com/scipag/HardeningKitty , which has recommended policy lists from a variety of organizations. I check my computer with all of them. They don't all agree, of course, so I kind of pick and choose a little. But the lists have helped me find things I had no idea where they were.

  • red_team_attack_lab

    Red Team Attack Lab for TTP testing & research

    Project mention: Non-Internet Connected IAC Range | reddit.com/r/devsecops | 2022-08-28

    There are some pretty solid examples like splunk attack range or detection lab available on GitHub. They leverage ansible, virtual box, and vagrant. My team used to use red team lab https://github.com/Marshall-Hallenbeck/red_team_attack_lab internally for demos, but has since moved to Snaplabs for the ease of deployment and cost. I can have a junior engineer spin up an entire Ad instance from a template in 5 minutes vs fighting virtual box and ansible to 2 days.
