Pastebin, but for HTML? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/26

Nice question (thanks aplm!), as for instance Gist does not render html:

Pastebin is a useful online tool to paste snippets of text. Pastie is a similar tool. Also, Ideone is similar except that it also runs the source code, as well as being a general pastebin.

Is there a similar tool, for HTML?

And ditto links in the answer (thanks meder!):

Unbelievable that such questions get closed as “not constructive”.

Note I could not get to work.

The Clickjacking attack, X-Frame-Options

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/29

Front-end web development isn’t my core area of expertise, but every now and then I am slightly more than the usual spectator and do get involved.

This case it was about helping to prevent The Clickjacking attack by using the The X-Frame-Options response header from RFC 7034.

Lots of people seem to have questions about it: Highest Voted ‘x-frame-options’ Questions – Stack Overflow.

So, from The X-Frame-Options response header:

There are three possible values for X-Frame-Options:

The page cannot be displayed in a frame, regardless of the site attempting to do so.
The page can only be displayed in a frame on the same origin as the page itself.
The page can only be displayed in a frame on the specified origin.

Batch file that finds and starts Cntlm.exe in verbose mode.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/13

As a follow up on the Cntlm configuration post last week, here is a small batch file that will find Cntlm.exe (on x86 and x64 systems) then start it in verbose mode.

How to fill proxy information in cntlm config file (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/10

This is an elaboration of How to fill proxy information in cntlm config file – Stack Overflow.

When digging around how to get authentication stuff going, I want as much information, so this was the command-line I used:

cntlm.exe -v -c cntlm.ini -I -M

The -v is important: it shows you why things fail, and where: It also shows you the NTLM headers sent back/forth over the wire.

These are the switches used:

  • -v verbose
  • -c configuration file
  • -I interactive (prompt for password)
  • -M magically detect the NTLM level used by the proxy

Since it is unsafe to store plain text passwords in configuration files, cntlm allows you to store the hashes.

Storing hashes not passwords locally is safer, but not much safer. See for instance Still Passing the Hash 15 Years Later: Guest Post: Let’s talk about Pass-the-Hash by Scriptjunkie the video How to own a Windows Domain or search for Mark Russinovich video windows hash ntlm hack.

Anyway: you can generate the password hashes using either     Read the rest of this entry »
