Portability – A new Security Threat

With the drastic change in technology, machines are getting smaller and feature rich. In other words machines are being made more Portable as per human needs but this concept of Portability has bought a new level of threat to Security. A person can carry a portable computer having installed a penetration testing OS or any other tool on it,to penetrate deep into a company’s network without the device or the person getting detected.

Restrict Apache Acess to Localhost Only

Setting up a Dev Server on your system can be easy but it can be a security hazard too! Why? Because if you have your server running, a person can access your web server page via your IP which can be dangerous. Anyone inside your local network can access it so as from the INTERNET if your External IP is known.

For me, the only solution for this  problem was to deny all the connections from the outside and only allow localhost access i.e if you access the server from your local  or external IP, you will receive a 403 Forbidden error. The only way you can access that server is to login via localhost on the same system where your web server is present.

Setting Up a Honeypot On Linux For Security

Hello HC!
Today the topic of my tutorial is Creating a Honeypot on Linux but before we continue we need to understand what the term “Honeypot” stands for:

In easy words, Honeypot is a fake system which is used to set a trap for intruders trying to gain unauthorized access to your system. A Honeypot is like a virtual program which tends to be a part of the computer and the network on which it is installed. A Honeypot detects scans, bruteforce attempts, nmap service scans, pings, telnet connections and more!

Wanna Be Anonymous?

Hello guys!
I’ve seen people talk a lot about anonymity so I thought I did make a tutorial on it and explain clearly whether you can get anonymous or not, We’ll also be discussing some methods and tools to make that happen but first read this para with extreme attention and understand what it says:

Sometimes it is desired that a person can establish a long-term relationship (such as a reputation) with some other entity, without necessarily disclosing personally identifying information to that entity. In this case, it may be useful for the person to establish a unique identifier, called a pseudonym, with the other entity. Examples of pseudonyms are pen names, nicknames, credit card numbers, student numbers, bank account numbers, and IP addresses. A pseudonym enables the other entity to link different messages from the same person and, thereby, the maintenance of a long-term relationship.
Someone using a pseudonym would be strictly considered to be using “pseudonymity” not “anonymity”, but sometimes the term “anonymity” is used to refer to both (in general, a situation where the legal identity of the person is disguised) – Wikipedia

So here I’ll say my pseudonym is Ex094.
