A USB device makes it easy to steal credentials from locked PCs

images-35Most users lock their computer screens when they temporarily step away from them. While this seems like a good security measure, it isn’t good enough, a researcher demonstrated this week.

Rob Fuller, principal security engineer at R5 Industries, found out that all it takes to copy an OS account password hash from a locked Windows computer is to plug in a special USB device for a few seconds. The hash can later be cracked or used directly in some network attacks.

For his attack, Fuller used a flash-drive-size computer called USB Armory that costs $155, but the same attack can be pulled off with cheaper devices, like the Hak5 LAN Turtle, which costs $50.

The device needs to masquerade as an USB-to-Ethernet LAN adapter in such a way that it becomes the primary network interface on the target computer. This shouldn’t be difficult because: 1) operating systems automatically start installing newly connected USB devices, including Ethernet cards, even when they are in a locked state and 2) they automatically configure wired or fast Ethernet cards as the default gateways.

For example, if an attacker plugs in a rogue USB-to-Gigabit-Ethernet adapter into a locked Windows laptop that normally uses a wireless connection, the adapter will get installed and will become the preferred network interface.

Furthermore, when a new network card gets installed, the OS configures it to automatically detect the network settings through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This means that an attacker can have a rogue computer at the other end of the Ethernet cable that acts as a DHCP server. USB Armory is a computer on a stick that’s powered via USB and can run Linux, so no separate machine is required.

Once an attacker controls a target computer’s network settings via DHCP, he also controls DNS (Domain Name System) responses, can configure a rogue internet proxy through the WPAD (Web Proxy Autodiscovery) protocol and more. He essentially gains a privileged man-in-the-middle position that can be used to intercept and tamper with the computer’s network traffic.

According to Fuller, computers in a locked state still generate network traffic, allowing for the account name and hashed password to be extracted. The time it takes for a rogue USB device to capture credentials from a system using this attack is around 13 seconds, he said.

He tested the attack successfully on Windows and OS X. However, he’s still working on confirming if OS X is vulnerable by default or if it was his Mac’s particular configuration that was vulnerable.

“First off, this is dead simple and shouldn’t work, but it does,” the researcher said in a blog post. “Also, there is no possible way that I’m the first one who has identified this, but here it is.”

Depending on the Windows version installed on the computer and its configuration, the password hashes will be in NT LAN Manager (NTLM) version 2 or NTLMv1 format. NTLMv2 hashes are harder to crack, but not impossible, especially if the password is not very complex and the attacker has access to a powerful password cracking rig.

There are also some relay attacks against network services where NTLM hashes can be used directly without having to know the user’s plaintext password.

Computer Simulations Heat Up hunt for Planet Nine

images-34For a planet that hasn’t technically been discovered yet, Planet Nine is generating a lot of buzz. Astronomers have not actually found a new planet orbiting the sun, but some remote icy bodies are dropping tantalizing clues about a giant orb lurking in the fringes of the solar system.

Six hunks of ice in the debris field beyond Neptune travel on orbits that are aligned with one another, Caltech planetary scientists Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown report (SN Online: 1/20/16). Gravitational tugs from the known planets should have twisted the orbits around by now. But computer simulations suggest the continuing alignment could be explained by the effects from a planet roughly 10 times as massive as Earth that comes no closer to the sun than about 30 billion kilometers — 200 times the distance between the sun and Earth. The results appear in the February Astronomical Journal.

Evidence for a stealth planet is scant, and finding such a world will be tough. Discovering hordes of other icy nuggets on overlapping orbits could make a stronger case for the planet and even help point to where it is on the sky. Until then, researchers are intrigued about a potential new member of the solar system but cautious about a still theoretical result.

“It’s exciting and very compelling work,” says Meg Schwamb, a planetary scientist at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan. But only six bodies lead the way to the putative planet. “Whether that’s enough is still a question.”

Hints of a hidden planet go back to 2014. Twelve bodies in the Kuiper belt, the ring of frozen fossils where Pluto lives, cross the midplane of the solar system at roughly the same time as their closest approach to the sun (SN: 11/29/14, p. 18). Some external force — such as a large planet — appears to hold them in place, reported planetary scientists Chad Trujillo, of the Gemini Observatory in Hilo, Hawaii, and Scott Sheppard, of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C.

This new analysis “takes the next step in trying to find this giant planet,” Sheppard says. “It makes it a much more real possibility.”

In addition to what Sheppard and Trujillo found, the long axes of six of these orbits point in roughly the same direction, Batygin and Brown report. Those orbits also lie in nearly the same plane. The probability that these alignments are just a chance occurrence is 0.007 percent.

“Imagine having pencils scattered around a desktop,” says Renu Malhotra, a planetary scientist at the University of Arizona in Tucson. “If all are pointing in the same quarter of a circle, that’s somewhat unusual.”

A hidden world might explain a couple of other oddities about the outer solar system. Dwarf planets Sedna and 2012 VP113, for example, are far removed from the known worlds (SN: 5/3/14, p. 16). Planet Nine could have put them there.

The planet would also stir up some of the denizens of the Kuiper belt into orbits that are roughly perpendicular to the rest of the solar system — a population of five known objects that Batygin was surprised to learn exists. When he and Brown compared their simulations of an agitated Kuiper belt to these bodies’ cockeyed trajectories, they found a match.“If there was one dramatic moment in the past year and a half, this was it,” Batygin says. “We didn’t really believe our own story for the longest time. But here was the strongest line of evidence.”

Given what scientists know about how the solar system formed, the proposed planet is not native to its current environment. It probably originated closer to the sun and was kicked to the hinterlands after flirtations with the current roster of giant planets.

This wouldn’t be the first time scientists were led to a new world by the odd behavior of another. Astronomer Johann Galle found Neptune in 1846 after mathematicians Urbain Le Verrier and John Couch Adams calculated that an unknown planet could be causing Uranus to speed up and slow down along its orbit.

Uranus was a more clearly defined problem, says Scott Tremaine, an astrophysicist at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J. Le Verrier and Adams were trying to understand why Uranus appeared to defy the law of gravity, whereas Batygin and Brown are piecing together a story of how the solar system evolves.

“When we’re talking about history rather than laws, it’s always easier to go astray,” says Tremaine.

The orbital alignments are striking, he says, and Batygin and Brown have done sensible calculations. But he worries about hunting for statistical significance after noting a possible oddity. “That can be very misleading,” he says. “The numbers that won the Powerball lottery are an unusual combo, but that doesn’t mean anything.”

In the meantime, “the hunt for Planet Nine is on,” Batygin says. Data from NASA’s WISE satellite, which spent nearly nine months making an infrared map of the sky, rule out the existence of a planet as massive as Saturn out to 4.2 trillion kilometers from the sun, and a Jupiter-like world out to three times as far. If a smaller, cooler planet is out there, it’s probably in the outer third of its orbit, which puts it against a dense background of Milky Way stars, a planetary needle in a galactic haystack. “It’s not going to be impossible,” he says. “It just makes it harder.”

The Victor Blanco telescope in Chile and Subaru telescope in Hawaii are the best facilities for undertaking the search, Schwamb says. Both have cameras that can see large swaths of sky. If scientists don’t mind waiting, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will come online in 2023. Currently being built in Chile, LSST will image the entire sky once every three days.

“We would be able to detect Planet Nine even if it was moving slowly,” says Lynne Jones, an astronomer and LSST scientist at the University of Washington in Seattle. “We could look for motion from month to month or over the course of a year and quickly pick it out from the background stars.”

There’s also the possibility, though remote, that a serendipitous picture of the planet already exists. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were all seen before anyone realized they were planets, dwarf or otherwise. Most observations don’t record things as faint as Planet Nine. “But there’s lots of archival data,” Sheppard says, accumulated in observatories as astronomers gather images of stars, nebulas and galaxies. “This could be sitting there somewhere.”

Fibre optics

The basic medium of fibre optics is a hair-thin fibre that is sometimes made of plastic but most often of glass. A typical glass optical fibre has a diameter of 125 micrometres (μm), or 0.125 mm (0.005 inch). This is actually the diameter of the cladding, or outer reflecting layer. The core, or inner transmitting cylinder, may have a diameter as small as 10 μm. Through a process known as total internal reflection, light rays beamed into the fibre can propagate within the core for great distances with remarkably little attenuation, or reduction in intensity. The degree of attenuation over distance varies according to the wavelength of the light and to the composition of the fibre.
When glass fibres of core/cladding design were introduced in the early 1950s, the presence of impurities restricted their employment to the short lengths sufficient for endoscopy. In 1966, electrical engineers Charles Kao and George Hockham, working in England, suggested using fibres for telecommunication, and within two decades silica glass fibres were being produced with sufficient purity that infrared light signals could travel through them for 100 km (60 miles) or more without having to be boosted by repeaters. In 2009 Kao was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work. Plastic fibres, usually made of polymethylmethacrylate, polystyrene, or polycarbonate, are cheaper to produce and more flexible than glass fibres, but their greater attenuation of light restricts their use to much shorter links within buildings or automobiles.
Optical telecommunication is usually conducted with infrared light in the wavelength ranges of 0.8–0.9 μm or 1.3–1.6 μm—wavelengths that are efficiently generated by light-emitting diodes or semiconductor lasers and that suffer least attenuation in glass fibres. Fibrescope inspection in endoscopy or industry is conducted in the visible wavelengths, one bundle of fibres being used to illuminate the examined area with light and another bundle serving as an elongated lens for transmitting the image to the human eye or a video camera.

What Almost No One Knows About Companies

The Advantages of Using Building Information Modeling in AEC As 3D modeling continues to gain momentum in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, many stakeholders are increasingly finding it essential to leverage BIM technology in the execution of their projects. BIM software is somewhat sophisticated, but as an AEC service provider, you may just as well hire an expert for help with it, and perhaps, you may find it proper to hire an Autodesk consultant. The benefits of utilizing BIM are many, such as: For starters, reality capture is possible with BIM. Today, the best possible execution of an AEC project depends on different real data on a project site that can be captured via mapping and earth imaging tools. Bird’s eye view pictures, digital elevations, as well as infrastructure laser scans are part of the reality info that can facilitate the reorganization of project preparations. BIM makes it possible for designers to incorporate that captured reality into a model and share it across different teams, a feat that would be hard to achieve on paper. Since BIM allows the sharing of a model, this eliminates redundancy of designs. This means that teams involved in different phases of the same project do not have to rework or duplicate drawings. Each model has more data than possible on a drawing set, letting each building discipline add and connect their respective intelligence to the whole project.
A 10-Point Plan for Services (Without Being Overwhelmed)
When it comes the need to share and join forces, BIM outperforms all other approaches, as it supports so many functions that are only viable through digitized workflows. BIM software provides numerous tools that different disciplines pertaining to an AEC project can utilize to enable the sharing of their sophisticated models and facilitate integration with their peers. There are evaluation and markup steps meant to guarantee that all disciplines have taken part in the development of the design, and that everybody is ready to execute once the design is finalized and taken forward for implementation.
Short Course on Businesses – Getting to Square 1
You can simulate and visualize different aspects of a construction way before it starts using BIM. For example, you may carry out quantitative analysis, envisage sunlight at different times of the year, and calculate a building’s energy efficiency using BIM. Engineers, architects, and other people in the same project team can leverage the smartness of this software to adhere to principles that are built on physics and the AEC industry’s best practices. The software has so much capability beyond just analysis and modeling to attain optimal performance, bringing rules and information together into a function that can be set in motion with a mouse button click. Without using BIM tools, it’s hard for a business in the AEC industry to compete effectively. An Autodesk consulting company can advice on the use of BIM applications to optimize AEC project execution.

Problems with the system registry are an excellent example. These issues in many cases are regarded sensitive, as the problem sometimes necessitates the OS be reinstalled and crucial info may be lost, and end users without specialized backgrounds regularly are counseled to avoid them. Don’t wait to get services and the advice of a computer repair firm. You may appear to save some money at first by trying to solve the issue on your own, but in the long run you will save cash by obtaining the expert advice of a computer repair service.

Occasionally fixing means replacing. For instance, program crashes that occur often may be an indication of permanently ruined hard disk parts, which can only be solved by installing a new hard drive. It’s not unimportant that you consider some factors when you’re picking a PC repair service.

How accessible is the repair service provider to your dwelling or company? The rationale here is that even the most qualified repair team might be of no aid if their distance from your home of office makes it impractical for their sake to be available when required on a short notice. In spite of the advent of remote assistance, website visits are still not unnecessary particularly where components repair is required. In addition to physical proximity, choose the repair service business that may give assistance in person in the shortest moment possible.

Competence is not only academic qualification. Computer fixing is a technical occupation, and sensible, hands-on abilities have much more value than an academic degree. It is, nonetheless, significant that repair employees always develop their skills through ongoing training. Take into account that technicians that are incompetent may do more harm than you had in the first place when you call them.
