Forward Secrecy & Strict Transport Security

Today we implemented Forward Secrecy in order to improve the security and privacy of HBH. Forward Secrecy "should" make it "impossible" to eavesdrop on data being transmitted from your browser to HBH's servers. We also have Strict Transport Security enabled.

You can check the report on our SSL here. The SSL report is provided by Qualys SSL Labs

Also we have updated PHP so a few page may be offline, if you find any please report them here.

We have also updated the Development page so you can all see what we are working on and things we would like to do. Feel free to post your thoughts on the current projects.

Also we have updated the Change Log to reflect these changes.

Points for Creating Challenges & Points for Hall of Fame entries have been returned to the accounts that lost them.

Ranking System Changes

Since the points reset, We have had a lot of complaints about administrators being in the top ten on the rankings page. The current Admin staff have been here for a while and had already completed the challenges BUT to keep everyone happy, Administrators will no longer be included in the points rankings and will be unranked in their profiles.

On another note Real 15 IS up and running fine.

UPDATE: Real 9 an 10 are also now back up.

Changes to HBH

All Members Read This!

There has been a few changes to HBH over the past few weeks. Here are a list of changes and some reason why:

We have removed the old database tables and reset the points. This is due to old and corrupted accounts and no way for other members to get on the score board, Points cannot and will not be reinstated. We have also removed user accounts that haven\'t logged in in over a year.

We have two new staff members Euforia33 & rex_mundi they have been a great help to HBH over the years!

We also have improved the forum and replaced some old code which should make things faster.

Thanks

HBH Staff

How experts stay safe at the Black Hat security conference.

SAN FRANCISCO — Pen and paper instead of a laptop. Cash instead of credit cards. Face-to-face chats instead of cell phones. That is the drill for the most cautious at two big computer security conferences this week in Las Vegas.

Together they are a gathering of the worlds best hackers, which is why security professionals need to be there — but also on their toes, said Richard Blech, CEO of Secure Channels, a digital information security company based in Irvine, Calif.

Black Hat, which begins Tuesday, will fill the Mandalay Bay hotel with upwards of 9,000 security executives, hackers, academics, government and law enforcement staffers.

it is immediately followed by Def Con, a more hacker-oriented conference held at the Paris and Ballys hotels. Last year, Def Con attracted nearly 16,000 people.

Both feature demonstrations, lectures and presentations about the most cutting-edge computer security issues — attended by thousands of people with the tools and the knowledge to break into just about any system imaginable.

It is one-stop shopping, a place were every major security executive is gathered. You do not have to travel around the globe or hunt them down on the Internet — they are all here, said Brad Taylor, CEO of security company Proficio in Carlsbad, California.

That means the rules are a little different, said Stan Black, chief security officer for Citrix in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.. For example, he is bringing his schedule printed out on a piece of paper so he does not have to turn on his cell phone to check it.

The most wary will also turn off WiFi, power down Bluetooth and book hotel rooms halfway across town.

Chrome extensions crocked with simple attack

Security-enhancer HTTPS Everywhere switched off with this one weird trick

Detectify researcher Mathias Karlsson says attackers can remove Google Chrome extensions, including the popular HTTPS Everywhere extension, if users do nothing else but visit a web page.

Karlsson (@avlidienbrunn) says the vulnerability patched and pushed into the latest stable edition of Chrome allows users to be targeted without requiring intervention.

After some hours of analysis I managed to disable it (HTTPS Everywhere) by just viewing a HTML page, Karlsson says.

In fact, I managed to disable any extension and most without any user interaction.

Karlsson published a proof-of-concept attack that will disable HTTPS Everywhere by corrupting it.

The flaw does not reside in the extension and affects users who have not applied automatic Chrome updates.
Extensions are corrupted when websites attempt to access the Chrome extension URI handler. A malicious link can be constructed to issue ping attribute requests triggering corruption when users click.

Google had previously blocked most chrome extension URI request but appeared to have missed the ping attribute.

Experts Found a Unicorn in the Heart of Android

Gaining remote code execution privileges merely by having access to the mobile number? Enter Stagefright.

The targets for this kind of attack can be anyone from Prime ministers, govt. officials, company executives, security officers to IT managers
Built on tens of gigabytes of source code from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the leading smartphone operating system carries a scary code in its heart. Named Stagefright, it is a media library that processes several popular media formats. Since media processing is often time-sensitive, the library is implemented in native code (C++) that is more prone to memory corruption than memory-safe languages like Java.

Zimperium zLabs VP of Platform Research and Exploitation, Joshua J. Drake (@jduck), dived into the deepest corners of Android code and discovered what we believe to be the worst Android vulnerabilities discovered to date. These issues in Stagefright code critically expose 95% of Android devices, an estimated 950 million devices. Drakes research, to be presented at Black Hat USA on August 5 and DEF CON 23 on August 7 found multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities that can be exploited using various methods, the worst of which requires no user-interaction.

Attackers only need your mobile number, using which they can remotely execute code via a specially crafted media file delivered via MMS. A fully weaponized successful attack could even delete the message before you see it. You will only see the notification. These vulnerabilities are extremely dangerous because they do not require that the victim take any action to be exploited. Unlike spear-phishing, where the victim needs to open a PDF file or a link sent by the attacker, this vulnerability can be triggered while you sleeep. Before you wake up, the attacker will remove any signs of the device being compromised and you will continue your day as usual – with a trojaned phone.
