Wearing the Red Shirt

Just back from my GIAC Security Essentials class. No one was given access to the class materials until Tuesday, so I didn't have to prepare a presentation for that as well as the Weblogs seminar.

It's been moved to next week, instead. Since there was no real class, the instructor went over a couple of the tools IT security uses here for trouble shooting problems.

On windows machines, the first in the line of battle are fport and pskill. I've downloaded both, but my work PC's aren't actually all that interesting.

Here's what I found

FPort v2.0 - TCP/IP Process to Port Mapper

An available 139 port would normally be considered bad, but UNC is blocking the traffic that would normally exploit it. I've turned off File and Print sharing as well, so there's nothing to see behind it. Port 1026 is used to deliver message spam, but I haven't seen anyof that lately, so it must be getting blocked as well.

I recognize everything else, so there's no untoward processes running on my systems. I'm hoping the home systems will be equally as dull.

Tripwire is one of the major tools used for Linux systems. I'll try installing it tomorrow.
