• Cynet 360 Uses Insecure Control Channels

    For reasons I won't go into here, recently I was taking a quick look over the "Cynet 360" agent, essentialy an endpoint protection mechanism used as part of Cynet's "Autonomous Breach protection Platform".

    Cynet 360 bills itself as "a comprehensive advanced threat detection & response cybersecurity solution for for [sic] today's multi-faceted cyber battlefield". 

    Which is all well and good, but what I was interested in was whether it could potentially weaken the security posture of whatever system it was installed on.

    I'm a Linux bod, so the only bit I was interested in, or looked at, was the Linux server installer.

  • Republished: Manual Database Retrieval Script for ZoneAlarm

    I was browsing the net earlier to try and find an answer to whether it is possible to manually download the ZoneAlarm Anti-Virus signatures. For those wondering why you would want to, standalone machines can't access the net to download the signatures, but are still subject to users with CD's and USB sticks. The easy way would be to update ZoneAlarm on a net connected PC and then copy the files from C:\Windows\System32\Zonelabs\avsys\base\ but if you don't have access to one, but do have a Linux Box then the script I have written will fetch the files for you (there are a lot, but they only add up to about 30 megs at time of writing).
