I often get asked by many people on how we discover new vulnerabilities or code exploits. So, finally I decided to spend some time and make a small tutorial on what vulnerability research is all about.
Ok, the name is a pun on Titan’s watch 😛 and is something that is an outcome of a really cool bash feature which I’ll be discussing. Bash provides a way to create a TCP connection or send UDP packets to a host on a given port, the cool thing is that you don’t have to rely on other scripting languages or programs for creating sockets/network connections when writing a shell script. Using this feature one can write simple to complex network utilities/scripts (a sigh of relief for scriptters :-) if that is that a word ). NOTE: This is a bash provided feature(if it is compiled with –enable-net-redirections option) and has nothing to do with /dev Devices.
I have always been saying that “The best things in the world are for free ….fresh air, sunlight, friends, Linux……” 😀
Here is some free stuff from Microsoft (not joking 😀 ), but whether it will be best, Im doubtful. After Windows Defender which is a free Anti-Mal-ware from Microsoft, it is now coming up with a new single step security solution for Windows users, code named Morro. Morro is to succeed One Care, the paid version of Microsoft’s security offering.

The best of the lot will also be considered for the upcoming security conference * nullcon.
It was really good to see that Pune has a lot of potential. A lot of security enthusiasts showed up at the first NULL meet. The best part was that our first meet happened at ClubHack – India’s premier hacking convention, so much for a kickstart :-).
