All links and images for this episode can be found on CISO Series (https://cisoseries.com/click-this-link-to-fail-a-phishing-test/) Our phishing tests are designed to make you feel bad about yourself for clicking a link. We're starting to realize these tests are revealing how insensitive we are towards our employees. This episode is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series and Mike Johnson. Our guest this week is Yaron Levi, (@0xL3v1) former CISO, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City. Thanks to this week’s podcast sponsor, Stackrox StackRox is the industry’s first Kubernetes-native security platform that enables organizations to securely build, deploy, and run cloud-native applications anywhere. The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform delivers lower operational cost, reduced operational risk, and greater developer productivity through a Kubernetes-native approach that supports built-in security across the entire software development lifecycle. Is this a cybersecurity disinformation campaign? On reddit, an explosive discussion formed around a ComputerWeekly.com article by Saj Huq of Plexal about the importance of making disinformation a security issue. The problem though has primarily fallen into the hands of social media companies mostly because that's where disinformation spreads. While we've seen disinformation being used as a political tool, for businesses, it can tarnish your corporate brand, consumer trust, and ultimately the value of your product. It's also used in phishing campaigns. Breaches are compromising your data. Disinformation is questioning the validity and value of data without even stealing it. How do you combat that? Are we having communication issues? We're recording this episode shortly after GoDaddy sent its infamous phishing test email that promised employees a $650 bonus check. Those who clicked on the email were rewarded with additional security training. It took the entire Internet to point out how insensitive this was, GoDaddy's response was "We understand some employees were upset by the phishing attempt and felt it was insensitive, for which we have apologized." They argued that while it may be insensitive, these types of well-timed phishing emails do happen. A lot of people do not like phishing tests and Yaron has proven that if creative enough, anyone can fall for a phish. How can the company and security be more sensitive to employees, respect them, while also letting them know they may receive a malicious email just like this? "What's Worse?!" An international What's Worse conundrum. How do you go about discovering new security solutions? Julia Wool, Evolve Security said, "I just finished a Splunk course and wanted to explore other SIEM platforms and I am having a difficult time understanding how an enterprise should choose a vendor in this space. I couldn't imagine being the guy at an enterprise that has to consider all these different vendors that seem to be doing the same thing." Julia brings up a really good concern: If you were completely green, didn't have CISO connections, and were going to choose a SIEM for the first time how would you go about determining your needs and then researching and deciding? What sources would you use? And how do you limit this effort so you're not overwhelmed? There’s got to be a better way to handle this Brian Fanny, Orbita, asks, "Vendor scope can change over time within a project or the start of another and harder to control than the initial evaluations. They start off when non-critical requirements/needs eventually grow into handing assets of greater value and/or gaining access to more critical systems. How do you keep up with vendor/project scope creep from the security sidelines?"

Unfortunately, when you agree to a license you are agreeing to the text of that license document and not to a FAQ. If the text of that license document is ambiguous, then so are your rights and responsibilities under that license. Should your compliance to that license come before a judge, it’s their interpretation of those rights and responsibilities that will hold sway.

Thus, in order to be respectful of the time and efforts of the OSI board and this list’s members, we are hereby withdrawing the SSPL from OSI consideration.” (could be ‘open-source’, but negative feedback on mailing lists and elsewhere made the remove it from consideration from OSI) Open Source license requirements: The Open Source Definition | Open Source Initiative What does this mean?

7MS #450: DIY Pentest Dropbox Tips - part 4
Hey friends! We're continuing our series on pentest dropbox building - specifically playing off last week's episode where we started talking about automating the OS builds that go on our dropboxes. Today we'll zoom in a little closer and talk about some of the specific scripting we do to get a Windows 2019 Active Directory Domain Controller installed and updated so that it's ready to electronically punch in the face with some of your mad pentesting skills! Specifically, we talk about these awesome commands: tzutil /s "Central Standard Time" - this is handy to set the time zone of your server build powercfg.exe -change -standby-timeout-ac 0 will stop your VM from falling asleep Invoke-WebRequest "https://somesite/somefile.file" -OutFile "c:\some\path\somefile.file" is awesome for quickly downloading files you need. Couple it with Expand-Archive "C:\some\path\some.zip" "c:\path\to\where\you\want\to\extract\the\zip" to make auto-provisioning your toolkit even faster! Don't like it that Server Manager loves to rear its dumb head upon every login? Kill the task for it with Get-ScheduledTask -TaskName ServerManager | Disable-ScheduledTask -Verbose. Byeeeeee!!!! I love Chrome more than I love IE/Edge, so I auto install it with: $Path = $env:TEMP; $Installer = "chrome_installer.exe"; Invoke-WebRequest "http://dl.google.com/chrome/install/375.126/chrome_installer.exe" -OutFile $Path\$Installer; Start-Process -FilePath $Path\$Installer -Args "/silent /install" -Verb RunAs -Wait; Remove-Item $Path\$Installer Now get all the Windows updates! Install-PackageProvider -name nuget -force Install-Module PSWindowsUpdate -force Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate Get-WindowsUpdate Install-WindowsUpdate -AcceptAll -IgnoreReboot Then rename your machine: Write-Host "Picking a new name for this machine...you'll need to provide your admin pw to do so" Rename-Computer -LocalCredential administrator -PassThru Write-Host "New name accepted!" When you're ready to install Active Directory, you can grab the RSAT tools: Write-Host "Lets install the RSAT tooleeeage!" add-windowsfeature -name rsat-adds And then the AD domain services themselves: Write-Host "Now lets install the AD domain services!" add-windowsfeature ad-domain-services Then install the new forest: install-addsforest -domainname your.domain -installdns -DomainNetbiosName yourdomain
