sectoo_logo_design94.pngSectoo Linux is a Linux distribution aimed to help all sort of people with tasks related to network security. Under the form of a LiveCD based on Gentoo Linux, you will be able to achieve tasks such as port scanning, packet sniffing, OS fingerprinting, intrusion detection, etc. We hope that you will enjoy using Sectoo Linux, whoever you are : Network Admin, Pentester, White Hat or Black Hat Hacker, etc.

Sectoo Linux attempts to provide an up-to-date and easy-to-use set of security tools. Here are some common uses of Sectoo Linux :

Vulnerability Scanning : Sectoo Linux provides you base services such as port scanning using Nmap. You can then gather banner informations, looking for versions of services installed, and discover some exploits using Nessus. You can also use this to test what your IDS can pick up and what it can’t.

Network Analysis : Using a standard sniffer like TCPDump or Ethereal/Wireshark, you can see what’s going through a network in terms of protocols and content. And by using tools like p0f, you can achieve passive OS fingerprinting like never !

Security Research : Want to learn how to achieve this or that type of attack ? How to conduct other types of spoofing attacks ? Using Sectoo and reading the manpages for the tools (you’ll certainly have to search what tool & what manpage !), you’ll learn how. But be warned : Use of these tools in production environments is highly discouraged and could get you fired, or arrested in some countries.

Secure Connectivity : Sectoo Linux is including OpenSSH, for securely administrating remote systems.

Many small reasons for a website to be unavailable /news/many-small-reasons-for-a-website-to-be-unavailable /news/many-small-reasons-for-a-website-to-be-unavailable#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 07:15:32 +0000 /?p=191 When you are looking at all the small reasons why a website might not be available, it is wise to remember that the server inventory for every website is different. Some website have more than enough resources to keep their sites going, but many other sites do not have dedicated servers for their customers. When you are on a website that is not connected, you need to think about what could be happening on the other side of the screen.

The Slow Speed

If you are on a website that seems like it is going to stop working at any minute, you need to remember that more people are probably coming onto the site all at the same time. The site will slow down dramatically, and it will not be able to keep up with the traffic if the server inventory is not high. Also, a site that does not have a Tier 4 server is going to have a hard time keeping up with even a slight rise in traffic.

The Loss Of Signal

When the website is not available at all, it is possible that the host of the site had to shut it down due to the increased traffic. There may be people on the site, but you might have been locked out of the site because there is too much traffic on the site. When the traffic dies down on the site, you will be able to get back on the site. However, you could leave the site and return to find that you are locked out again.

When you are looking for reasons why you cannot get onto a website you want to visit, you need to remember that the website is inundated with traffic. You will have to work very hard to make sure that the site is not too busy, and you need to keep trying if you are not able to get onto the site the first time around. When you get onto the site, you will be able to stay provided that you do not back up out of the site and lose your place in place on the one or two servers they have.

With malware, viruses, and trojans coming to mind, a few legitimate data collecting programs are on the market.

After reviewing several competing packages in this field, I am sold on my latest find.

With the first known key logger program being used on a UNIX platform in 1983, this user-mode type of software has come a long way!

With all of the potential pitfalls that social media has to offer, one can’t be too careful when watching over your loved ones. Social Spy spy software is your answer to wondering what the kids have been looking at, whom they have been talking to, and talking about. Whether they are accessing Facebook, AIM, or AOL, your MAC or PC will be recording behind the scenes. Even if you are out of town, complete access is still at your fingertips via the remote login capability.

Are you tired of worrying about what the kids might be doing after you go to bed? Filtering all activity, Sentry PC is on duty 24/7, 365 days a year, so you may sleep soundly.

Capable of tracking multiple PCs, you will receive instant behavior alerts.
