SharePoint: How to collaborate with external parties?

Opening up an internal SharePoint farm to the Internet in order to share resources with external parties might seem a good idea, because it helps avoiding expensive infrastructure changes. However, in terms of security, this is not recommended because it does not sufficiently protect internal resources from external threats. The protection of internal resources hinges […]

This Burp extension automates most of the steps, which are necessary to test a SAML single sign-on process and perform according attacks. With SAML Raider, an authentication bypass vulnerability in a Service […]

Authentication Bypass in Netgear WNR1000v4 Router

Three months ago I tested the web interface of the Netgear WNR1000v4 router for some typical vulnerabilities. When playing around with the application by forcefully calling different URLs in contexts it was not meant for, I got some strange, but interesting behaviour. I accessed different URLs and then switched back to the root web directory […]

Using this tool, we were able to identify a severe vulnerability in the service provider (SP) implementation of AdNovum‘s nevisAuth. The following conditions make exploitation possible: SAML POST-Binding is used, i.e. […]

Using a variation of the double-slash trick we exploited in the past, I misused this functionality in order to perform a DOM based open redirection attack. Every SharePoint […]

Hacklab Q2 – NoSQL mischief

At our reoccurring Hacklab days, we at Compass get the chance to hack some stuff of our own choice together for a day. For example playing with GSM in an attempt to send fake SMS or eavesdrop on voice data, comparing Encase capabilities to Unix command line forensic tools or cloning door entry badges in […]
