Advanced Host Detection: Techniques To Validate Host-Connectivity by dethy
 Security Engineers spend a tireless amount of effort to block and filter packet anomalies in an internetwork connected environment. Advanced host mapping bypasses many forms of intrusion detection systems, filters, and routers, essentially enabling an attacker to map and discover previously unknown firewalled hosts.

Analysis Techniques for Detecting Coordinated Attacks and Probes by John Green , David Marchette and Stephen Northcutt
 Coordinated attacks and probes have been observed against several networks that we protect. We describe some of these attacks and provide insight into how and why they are carried out. We also suggest hypotheses for some of the more puzzling probes. Methods for detecting these coordinated attacks are provided.
Analysis of SSH crc32 Compensation Attack Detector Exploit by David A. Dittrich
 Once in the system, a series of operating system commands were replaced with trojan horses to provide back doors for later entry and to conceal the presence of the intruders in the system. A second SSH server was run on a high numbered port (39999/tcp).

Backdooring Binary Objects by klog
 Weakening a system in order to keep control over it (or simply to alter some of its functionality) has been detailed in many other papers. From userland code modification to trojan kernel code, most of the common backdooring techniques are either too dirty, or just not portable enough.

Defeating Forensic Analysis on Unix by the grugq
 To facilitate a useful discussion of anti-forensic strategies it is important that the reader possess certain background information. In particular, the understanding of anti-forensic file system sanitization requires the comprehension of basic Unix file system organisation. And, of course, the understanding of any anti-forensic theory demands at least a rudimentary grasp of digital forensic methodology and practise.
Defeating Sniffers and Intrusion Detection Systems by horizon
 The purpose of this article is to demonstrate some techniques that can be used to defeat sniffers and intrusion detection systems. This article focuses mainly on confusing your average "hacker" sniffer, with some rough coverage of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS).
Defeating Solaris/SPARC Non-Executable Stack Protection by Horizon
 I've recently been playing around with bypassing the non-executable stack protection that Solaris 2.6 provides. I'm referring to the mechanism that you control with the noexec_user_stack option in /etc/system. I've found it's quite possible to bypass this protection, using methods described previously on this list. Specifically, I have had success in adapting the return into libc methods introduced by Solar Designer and Nergal to Solaris/SPARC.

Denial Of Service Attacks by Hans Husman
 Denial of service is about without permission knocking off services, for example through crashing the whole system. This kind of attacks are easy to launch and it is hard to protect a system against them. The basic problem is that Unix assumes that users on the system or on other systems will be well behaved.

Evading Intrusion Detection by Seclabs
 There are many different ways in which network traffic can be obtained by a network intrusion detection system (IDS). This document demonstrates that one class of network IDS, which relies on passive network packet capture (commonly referred to as ?sniffing?), is fundamentally flawed. We show that sniffer-based IDS is, as a technology, immature, and thus cannot be relied upon for network security.

How Mitnick Hacked Tsutomu Shimomura with an IP Sequence Attack by Tsutomu Shimomura
 Two different attack mechanisms were used. IP source address spoofing and TCP sequence number prediction were used to gain initial access to a diskless workstation being used mostly as an X terminal. After root access had been obtained, an existing connection to another system was hijacked by means of a loadable kernel STREAMS module.

 While the interpretation techniques explained here are pertinent to activity logged by a NIDS or firewall, I approach the subject from the NIDS angle. This my favorite subject, and I present this data with a warning: know the inner workings of your NIDS, or suffer frequent false positives and false conclusions.

Simple Active Attack Against TCP by Laurent Joncheray
 Passive attacks using sniffers are becoming more and more frequent on the Internet. The attacker obtains a user id and password that allows him to logon as that user. In order to prevent such attacks people have been using identification schemes such as one-time password [skey] or ticketing identification [kerberos].

Sniffin' the Ether by Alaric
 A sniffer is a program that puts a NIC (Network Interface Card), also known as an Ethernet card, (one of the necessary pieces of hardware to physically connect computers together) into what is known as promiscuous mode. Once the network card is set to this mode, it will give the sniffer program the ability to capture packets being transmitted over the network.

The Escapades of Captain Midnight
 It started out as just another Saturday. April 26, 1986. John R. MacDougall, 25, spent the day alone at his satellite TV dealership in Ocala, Florida, waiting for customers who never came. "It was," he says, "a normal day in the doldrums of the satellite TV industry." But that night, MacDougall, 5 feet 11, 225 pounds, and prone to nervously running his fingers through his reddish blond hair and adjusting his glasses, would transform into Captain Midnight and set the world of satellite television spinning.
The Ethics of Hacking
The Ethics of Information Warfare and Statecraft by Dan Kuehl
 What constitutes an "act of war" in the "information age. This is a question that most members of the "IW community" have wrestled with, and it's a question that places one squarely on the horns of a dilemma: if you cannot easily answer whether an act belongs to the legal codes of war or peace, how can you make a determination of the act's ethical status?

The Strange Tale of the Attacks Against GRC.COM by Steve Gibson
 Nothing more than the whim of a 13-year old hacker is required to knock any user, site, or server right off the Internet. I believe you will be as fascinated and concerned as I am by the findings of my post-attack forensic analysis, and the results of my subsequent infiltration into the networks and technologies being used by some of the Internet's most active hackers.
The Wonderful World of Pagers by Erik Bloodaxe
 Screaming through the electromagnet swamp we live in are hundreds of thousands of messages of varying degrees of importance. Doctors, police, corporate executives, housewives and drug dealers all find themselves constantly trapped at the mercy of a teeny little box: the pager.
