Orionid Meteors Over Turkey  Credit & Copyright: Tunc TezelExplanation: Meteors have been flowing out from the constellation Orion. This was expected, as mid-October is the time of year for the Orionids Meteor Shower. Pictured above, over a dozen meteors were caught in successively added exposures over three hours taken this past weekend from a town near Bursa, Turkey. The

Dark Molecular Cloud Barnard 68  Image Credit: FORS Team, 8.2-meter VLT Antu, ESOExplanation: Where did all the stars go? What used to be considered a hole in the sky is now known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud. Here, a high concentration of dust and molecular gas absorb practically all the visible light emitted from background stars. The eerily dark surroundings help

Eclipsosaurus Rex  Image Credit & Copyright: Fred Espenak (MrEclipse.com)Explanation: We live in an era where total solar eclipses are possible because at times the apparent size of the Moon can just cover the disk of the Sun. But the Moon is slowly moving away from planet Earth. Its distance is measured to increase about 1.5 inches (3.8 centimeters) per year due to tidal

Global Aurora at Mars  Image Credit: MAVEN, LASP, University of Colorado, NASAExplanation: A strong solar event last month triggered intense global aurora at Mars. Before (left) and during (right) the solar storm, these projections show the sudden increase in ultraviolet emission from martian aurora, more than 25 times brighter than auroral emission previously detected by the orbiting MAVEN spacecraft. With a

Kerckhoff's Principle Kerckhoffs's principle, Wikipedia Encryption This video explains how the RSA public key and private key are created to be fully dependent on each other. The first part of the video explains the concepts with paint and colors. The second part contains heavy duty math, which may not be as easily understood: Public Key Cryptography: RSA

Boldly going where no man has gone before, the Kirk Ransomware brings so much nerdy goodness to the table that it could make anyone in IT interested. We have Star Trek, Low Orbital Ion Cannons, a cryptocurrency payment other than Bitcoin, and a decryptor named Spock! Need I say more? Discovered today by Avast malware researcher Jakub

In my previous post “Pentestit Lab v10 - The Mail Token”, we attained usernames through Intelligence Gathering, brute forced the SMTP Service, attained login credentials, and scored our first token. Today we will take our first steps at compromising the Global Data Security website - which will include the following: Mapping the Attack Surface
