    Project mention: Go Library like PyWhat? | | 2022-10-20

    Is there a library written in Go similar to PyWhat? I want to use a subset of the functionality for a simple go program I'm writing. I could just call PyWhat, link to lemmeknow, or even write a simple go implementation myself, but I wanted to ask if there was a pure go implementation. Thanks!

  • maltrail

    Project mention: Is Maltrait worth the trouble? | | 2022-12-22

    Yes, MT had OOM on *BSD, because of python-pcapy module, which is currently unmaintained. So, the fork was done and python-pcapy-ng becomes actual module for MT, which fixed OOM and now MT works OK for *BSD-line: [1] [2] [3] py-pcapy-ng on Fresh Ports: Also /requirement.txt file was modified for MT to avoid installing python-pcapy instead of python-pcapy-ng: [4] Despite on all it, some mass-medias keep saying that python-pcapy is required for MT to work. No, just python-pcapy-ng. "Given everything is now encrypted, does anyone know if it is still effective?" <-- IDS (MT is the IDS itself) is passive detection, it doesn't provide the prevention actions. MT can use blocking mechanism, they are describes for Linux: . If some can describe mechanism for MT on *BSD-line, that would be nice. Anyway would be thankful, if you provide details on missing ransomware. Perhaps, it is needed to update network IoCs, if ransomware comprometation was via network. Thank you! "Are the signatures reasonably up to date?" <-- trying to be up-to-dated:

  • JPGtoMalware

    It embeds the executable file or payload inside the jpg file. The method the program uses isn't exactly called one of the steganography methods. For this reason, it does not cause any distortion in the JPG file. The JPG file size and payload do not have to be proportional.The JPG file is displayed normally in any viewing application or web application.
