tool and book releases in my inbox

There have been a number of things released or updated recently that I want to try out, update, or read. Typically at work if I see new things, I’ll send notes to myself at home on my gmail account, but lately this has been getting jammed up as work has been insane lately. So I’m offloading some of the quick notes into blog posts…who knows, maybe someone else will likely these too!

OSSEC 1.4 has been released. This is still on my short list of projects.

IDS Policy Manager 2.2 has been released. I’d love to check this out, but I need to get my Snort box fixed at home.

fgdump 1.7 is out. fgdump is a utility for dumping Windows passwords, aka using pwdump more successfully and remotely.

Saw a note and placed an order today for a copy of Michael Rash’s latest book, Linux Firewalls: Attack Detection and Response.

Nipper 0.10.8 is out. Nipper can perform security audits on Cisco device configs.
