Todo.txt is a shell based todo list manager. It reads and writes to text files, which makes it portable and easy to edit with other tools. I run a copy on my Mac, but you can run it anywhere you have a shell, for example on a VPS that you can access remotely.

How to build a covert network with OpenVPN

There are many uses for a covert network, for this hypothetical scenario we are corporate spies and we need to exfiltrate data from our assets inside the target corporations network. I don’t think the concepts here are new, but I haven’t seen any decent how to’s for a setup like this.

I’m going to skip some steps that aren’t relevant to the configuration and use of OpenVPN, the reader needs to accept that my corporate target has a compromised host on their network. This includes how the VPN is hidden from the target, how root access is obtained, etc. Those details are left to the reader. I will discuss possible solutions, but not how to implement them. This configuration could just as easily be used to share pictures between family members.

EFW NAT Loopback

To allow users on internal interfaces to access the external IP, you need to add a Source NAT rule. This is sometimes referred as NAT Loopback.

* Source: Network of your LAN subnet
* Destination: GREEN/ORANGE
* Service: ANY
* NAT: Auto

Works with Endian Firewall Community 2.3. It probably applies to other similar FWs like IPCop and Smoothwall.

Malware Cleaning

I recently had to clean an infected Windows computer where the malware was impossible to remove while running windows. I couldn’t find a resource that had straight forward instructions on what to do when the malware was so entrenched that removing it seemed impossible. My first attempt at cleaning was with the windows computers hard drive connected to a machine running Ubuntu 8.04.1 and a scan with ClamAV. This works ok, but it’s a pain to hook up hard drives and certainly not something the average windows user can do.
