'Hack in a box' tool emerges at Def Con
Core-SDI boasted that before the arrival of its 'hack in a box' tool, security professionals and penetration testers had to make do with a patchwork toolbox built up of scripts pulled off the web or developed by the pen testers themselves along with commercial port scanners and a multitude of other tools.
The offering would include this entire toolbox in one package, but uses agents to break further into target networks. These agents attempt to break into a certain area or machine and, once successful, would deploy another agent to run the next stage of the hack.
Core-SDI claimed that the tool would be smarter than some script kiddies, pulling hacking techniques from a huge database before generating a full security report highlighting any weaknesses. The company argued - somewhat unconvincingly - that to deter script kiddies from using the tool, it was attaching a hefty price tag so that it would only fall into the hands of security professionals. It should be available by the end of the year.
