SSLurry – A quick and dirty .nessus file parser to extract hosts/services affected by SSL related issues. I’ve been testing on a large number of heavily populated internal subnets recently.

Auto-sslscan (Automatic SSL Scanning)

Auto-sslscan As I mentioned in the previous post whilst Nessus and Nmap do a reasonable job of enumerating SSL protocols and ciphers I often find myself utilising other 3rd party SSL scanning tools.

However, I found that I was able to utilise rundll32.exe to attempt to enumerate/manipulate the environment.  I couldn’t …

With this in mind I was intrigued by post by Josh Stone who has done a nice write up on creating an Incognito binary via the Metasploit Framework …
