2020 was an unprecedented and eventful year, different from any other and it was no exception for us. In light of this, we’ve decided to skip a version for our next release (v3.13) -as the number 13 has got a bad reputation-, and we will be releasing v3.14 directly.

We believe that it’s necessary that all pieces work well inside to have a better performance, so we took the time to slow down, analyze in depth what we had been doing and focus on fixing small things to make a big leap in the short term.

Some of our improvements…


If you feel that cybersecurity should be easier, at Faraday we want to transform how thousands of teams work.

Integrating systems is an elusive but mandatory job in any software product’s life. Developers have to deal with languages they don’t know, undocumented APIs or new paradigms. This leads to the fact that many product teams decide not to open the possibility to integrate to them.

In Faraday’s case, we are aware that integrations with other security tools are a critical part of our product. However, we’ve realized that our existing Plugin system wasn’t as easy as we expected to develop some integrations: it required some level of interactivity (either running a command from the console or importing a report)…


Introduction

In the previous months, our team has been working over a Metasploit plugin to integrate it with Faraday. The plugin named as faraday_bridge tries to synchronize the information about hosts, service, or vulnerabilities between both tools. It would be available for the public in a short period of time, I guess. 🐌

We found inspiration in the libnotify and accidentally found a bug.

The vulnerability is not enabled by default, only users with the libnotify plugin enabled could be exploited, but we wrote the exploit just for fun.

What is libnotify?

libnotify is a plugin that displays a message through the system bar…

In order to continue contributing to the community, we extend the actions we’ve been taking due to the pandemic that is plaguing the world. From where we stand, we want to help all the medical entities that fight against the COVID-19.

Given the background, and as everyone knows, cybercrime has increased dramatically and it is very important, perhaps even critical, that Healthcare entities can strengthen the efficiency of their Vulnerability Management programs to avoid any possible attacks to keep working as usual.

For this reason, we are granting a free Faraday Corporate License for one year to all organizations in…
