  • mitmproxy

    An interactive TLS-capable intercepting HTTP proxy for penetration testers and software developers.

    Mainly this was just myself getting irritated at MS Teams and trying to figure out what it was doing. It was a couple years ago and my current company doesn't use teams, thankfully, so I can't really see if its still valid.

    From what I remember..

    There are files on the disk that get updated/overwritten with pulls from the server every time it launches. Somewhere in AppData I think. A few of these are config files (with lots of interesting looking settings, including beta features).

    One of the config entries specifies a telemetry endpoint (which, you _could_ figure out with a network tracing tool but there are a ton of MS telemetry endpoints your machine is probably talking to. Best to just grab the one explicitly being used from the config like this). I forget the full name of the setting but the name pretty clearly indicates its for telemetry, and the file is clearly a config file. If you can't find it just by browsing the structure, try a multi-file search tool and look for 'telemetry' or URL/hostnames.

    You can't really change the value on disk and make it just take effect from there, since it gets downloaded from the server and overwritten before Teams loads. There might be some tricks you can do locally to persist the change but nothing seemed to work for me. You could override response from server via mitmproxy but that requires finding where it comes across the wire at launch time and then building a script/config to replace it.

    Anyway, you can block that telemetry endpoint from a firewall and see your memory bloat. Or you can intercept that endpoint in any mitm proxy. I went with this [mitmproxy]( From there you can capture the content it sends to the endpoint, or even change the response the server sends (Teams just seems to expect a 200 code back).

    The telemetry data itself is some kind of streaming event format. I think I even found documentation on the structure on some microsoft website, so its likely a reused format.

    It's pretty straightforward.

    I couldn't spend too much time on it and now it's not something I even use, but some cool things you might want to try if you dive deeper into this:

    - Overwrite the config file as it returns from the server, to turn on EU data protection, change various functionality you're not supposed to, or flip some feature flags.

    - Figure out if there's a feature flag or even other overwrite to fully disable the metrics so they aren't even collected, from anywhere in the app.

    - Intercept telemetry, return an 'OK' response and drop the data from telemetry, or maybe document what they collect more definitively if you think there's interest somewhere. This keeps your privacy but doesn't really do anything for performance.

    - Interfere with the data before actually returning it, maybe try playing with event contents and channel/user indicators. Microsoft probably won't like this if they notice, but it's unlikely they'll even notice.

  • XX-Net

    A proxy tool to bypass GFW.

  • FlareSolverr

    Proxy server to bypass Cloudflare protection

    Project mention: Scraping Google trends, and incomplete datasets. Help, please? | /r/datasets | 2023-12-07

    What i didnt tried: - scraping and using these (single page) tokens - headless browser - web-test-frameworks like selenium (programmable browser) - using Flaresolver (my best bet) . A headless browser / proxy developed to bypass cloudflare. You can easily deploy it onprem with docker. I know google got its own defence machanisms, but i've got very good experience using it for scraping and crawling (at least cloudflare protected) websites. So i guess its very good at pretending being a normal browser, being a normal user.

  • email-oauth2-proxy

    An IMAP/POP/SMTP proxy that transparently adds OAuth 2.0 authentication for email clients that don't support this method.

    Project mention: Bringing Exchange Support to Thunderbird | | 2024-04-21

    What makes you say the protocol is different for each provider?

    I maintain a proxy that transparently adds support for OAuth 2.0 support to IMAP/POP/SMTP clients (, and for normal use it doesn’t need to know anything about which service it is connecting to. Apart from advanced features such as CCG or ROPCG which are mostly O365 only, what is different?
