CVESearch

This was a new python script that I saw which works similarly to searchspoilt. Basically, it will search through all the CVEs for your search terms. If you are on a fresh install of Kali, you will need to install Pip for Python 3. This can be accomplished with:

Git clone https://github.com/highmeh/cvesearch.git
Sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Next, you will need to install the python module Untangle which will reach XML files and present a more human readable format. Run the following command to get Untangle:

Pip3 install requests untangle

Finally, update the database with:

 ./cvesearch.py -d

You can use either the CVE number with the -c argument or use -s and search by a keyword. Below, I searched for the version number of ISC Bind 9.8.1-P1 on a Vulnhub.

Hello World!

This will be where I keep scripts and quick notes for what I find interesting on the topic of information security. I am currently working towards the OSCP and hope to have it completed this fall. Expect to see a few vuln hub write ups, general Active Directory information, and how to articles posted over the next few months. This is primarily a test website to try out using Amazon EC2 and further expand my knowledge of their hosted infrastructure offerings.
