SSLStrip on Windows whitepaper

I was today just googling my white paper on 'SSLStrip on Windows'. I was surprised that Google was now suggesting 'SSLStrip Windows' as you start typing 'SSLStrip...' It indicates that lot of people are searching for the term. The Google search listed me some results among which few were linking to sites where I had uploaded the document e.g. my blog and
Another result which came up was was linking to which took me by surprise and I was full of mixed feelings. I was happy that somebody has found it useful but at the other hand I was bit sad that he is not mentioning my name anywhere as a reference on his site. I stressed on my memory and recalled that the guy's full name is 'Robert McCurdy'. Actually we have had a lot of communications regarding his doubts over running SSLStrip on windows.

Well Robert, thanks for uploading it to your site.
Now one more location to download the paper :)

Hello congratulations on getting published! I'm pretty new to this. I'm trying to follow your directions and I am having a bit of trouble with executing the java command. I saw that one other person is having the same issue, however I was not able to find a solution on how to rectify. when I run the C:\Users\username>java -classpath commons-logging.jar 80 localhost:10000 I get the following error message [code]Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eenterprisepower/
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
at Method)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal([/code] I set the classpath and echoed it to ensure that the two jar files were noted, but I continue to get the error message. I'm not sure where I could be going wrong. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Also just to clarify that steps 1 - 4 are supposed to be done on the hacker comp correct? Where as the installation of python and step two should be on both? Thank you so much in advance. My email address is

Ardilla- New tool for finding SQL Injection and XSS

Three Researchers -- MIT's Adam Kiezun , Stanford's Philip Guo , and Syracuse University's Karthick Jayaraman -- has developed a new tool ' Ardilla ' that automatically finds and exploits SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in Web applications. It creates inputs that pinpoint bugs in Web applications and then generates SQL injection and XSS attacks. But for now Ardilla is for PHP -based Web app only. The researchers say Ardilla found 68 never-before found vulnerabilities in five different PHP applications using the tool -- 23 SQL injection and 45 XSS flaws. More information is awaited. For their attack generation techniques refer to their document at:

Combining power of Fiddler with Burp

Both are pretty powerful tools when it comes to intercept and modify http communications. But at some point of time, they become even more powerful combo if tied with each other. They complement each other. In a recent pentest I came across a similar situation where in Burp was not able to intercept a specific kind of traffic and Fiddler came to rescue. The application was designed to upload video. The initial communication was straight forward, I mean logging into application, filling up the video details etc. And all these were easily captured by Burp except the point where you hit the Upload Video and it connects to a different server and surprisingly it was not captured by Burp, not sure why, even after repeated attempts. So, I fired Fiddler to see if the it sees this request. But it's a;ways to play with requests using Burp due to it's various functionalities like, Intruder, Repeaters etc. But it was necessary to capture this request in Burp. So the below steps can be

File Upload through Null Byte Injection

Sometimes, during file upload we come across situation wherein there would be check on the file extension at the client side as well as server side too. If the application does allow only .jpeg extension to be uploaded, the client side java script checks for the extension of the file before passing the request. We all know that how easily this can be defeated. Some applications, checks for the extension at the server side also. That's not easy to bypass. However there are some ways with which it still can be bypassed. Most of server side scripts are written in high level languages such as Php, Java etc who still use some C/C++ libraries to read the file name and contents. That leads to the problem. In C/C++ a line ends with /00 or which is called Null Byte. So whenever the interpreter sees a null byte at the end of the a string, it stops reading thinking it has reached at the end of the string. This can be used for the bypass. It works for many servers, specially php servers. T
