Last week Fyodor released the results of the top security tools poll at sectools.org. BinPack has always had a ‘sectools100’ list for quick install of these applications into your system. With the new results out, we synced the list and created a ‘sectools125’ list. Download the text file and put it in the ‘lists’ directory to access the sectools125 list. Enjoy!
After the Wired.com article was posted on September 8th, it spread pretty quickly to other news sites and on twitter. Here are a bunch of links to other sites’ coverage of our research.
The amount of debate this research generated was also interesting to see. Wired, CNN, and of course Slashdot among others all had lively discussions going on. I’m actually glad the research generated this type of interest, and hopefully companies will take the needed steps to address the issue and protect themselves.
Kim Zetter from Wired.com posted a great article today about Doppelganger Domains called “Researchers’ Typosquatting Stole 20 GB of E-Mail From Fortune 500“.
Two comments to add:
We just posted a whitepaper on Doppelganger Domains. Stay safe out there!
I just got word that we will be presenting on Doppelganger Domains at this year’s ToorCon! We are super excited and we will have some interesting examples to share, so make sure you don’t miss our presentation.
