Hey, I'm releasing this new paper, not big deal but interesting.
This paper it's about Data0, a fictitious (or not) simple PoC of new malware 
that after it's 
deployed on a computer in an internal network it will automatically hack 
database servers and 
steal their data. Several techniques used by Data0 will be detailed. Data0 will 
be targeting 
Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database Server two of the most used database 
While Data0 could be used by the bad guys for evil purposes, it could also be 
used by security 
professionals and organizations to determine how strong networks, workstations, 
servers, etc. are against this kind of attack. 
This paper is not intended to be a cook book for cyber criminals, it's intended 
to show people 
that by implementing simple techniques malware can become “smarter” and cause a 
lot more 
damage in a very near future.

Be a better pen pal. 
Text or chat with friends inside Yahoo! Mail. See how.
