Presentation Title: Meta Anti Forensics : The HASH Hacking Harness
Presentation Details:

For the last decade buffer overflows and memory corruption exploits have been the main focus of hacking tool development. The actual hacking environment has received little attention. Indeed, most hackers still hack directly within a vanilla shell, using their tools straight off the command line. No public tools have emerged to change the methodologies of the command line hacker.

This talk presents a new penetration testing assistance tool to bridge the gap between vanilla command line hacking and graphical exploit environments such as Impact and CANVAS. At its simplest this new tool provides programmatic control to normal shell interactions. Utilising this powerful building block, based on Python and incorporating Expect-like functionality, this tool enables numberous new capabilities for today’s systems security analyst. Several bundled modules exist, including:

* Anti forensic trace-free remote execution of scripts and binaries
* Inline safe file transfer (no more uuencode + cat!)
* Aliases for common post-login commands (e.g. ‘unset HISTFILE’)
* Sanity checks for $PATH and $LD_PRELOAD

The basic functionality is impressive in itself, and it can be easily extended via the plugin system.
