Medusa

I was informed last month of the release of the new “Faraday” penetration testing framework. A key feature of this framework is its ability to parse the output from various other security tools, including Foofus.Net’s Medusa! Here is the official release from the Infobyte folks:

We are happy to announce our first release of Faraday (beta), an open source collaborative Penetration Test IDE console that uses the same tools you use every day.

Faraday introduces a new concept (IPE) Integrated Penetration-Test Environment

We built a plugin system, where all the I/O from the terminal gets interpreted, if we have a plugin for the command, the output is processed and added to a knowledge base in a transparent way.

Our idea was to build a tool that helps from the perspective of a pentester without changing the way you work, adding the support for multi user collaboration on security testing projects.

Developed with a specialized set of functionalities that help users improve their own work adding collaborative data sharing, indexation and analysis of the generated knowledge during the engagement of a security audit.

[Features]
* +40 Plugins (Metasploit, Amap, Arachini, Dnsenum, Medusa, Nmap, Nessus, w3af, Zap and More!)
* Collaborative support
* Information Highlighting
* Knowledge Filtering
* Information Dashboard
* Conflict Detection
* Support for multiple Workspaces
* IntelliSense Support
* Easy Plugin Development
* XMLRPC, XML and Regex Parsers

Medusa 2.1 is now available for public download.

http://www.foofus.net/jmk/tools/medusa-2.1.tar.gz

What is Medusa? Medusa is a speedy, massively parallel, modular, login brute-forcer for network services created by the geeks at Foofus.net. It currently has modules for the following services: AFP, CVS, FTP, HTTP, IMAP, MS-SQL, MySQL, NCP (NetWare), NNTP, PcAnywhere, POP3, PostgreSQL, rexec, rlogin, rsh, SMB, SMTP (AUTH/VRFY), SNMP, SSHv2, SVN, Telnet, VmAuthd, VNC. It also includes a basic web form module and a generic wrapper module for external scripts.

While Medusa was designed to serve the same purpose as THC-Hydra, there are several significant differences. For a brief comparison, see:

This release does not introduce any major changes to the core of the application, however, it does include two years worth of bug-fixes throughout the code base and numerous incremental improvements.

Enjoy,

After what feels like an eternity, Medusa 2.0 is now available for public download.

This release contains the most significant changes to the core of Medusa since its original release in 2005. We’ve moved to a “real” thread pool and modified how credential sets are selected. See the following for a more detailed list of changes:

It’s been over a year since version 1.4 was released and there has been a bunch of changes. This release includes multiple bug fixes, several new modules and additional module functionality. The following is a quick rundown on some of the new features. A somewhat detailed report is available here: http://www.foofus.net/jmk/medusa/ChangeLog

* AFP – new module (still marked as unstable)
* HTTP – digest auth support
* IMAP – STARTTLS, NTLM support
* POP3 – STARTTLS, LOGIN, PLAIN, NTLM support
* SMBNT – LM, LMv2, NTLMv2 support
* SMTP – NTLM support
* TELNET – AS/400 (TN5250) support
* misc. core and module bug fixes

Medusa was developed on Gentoo Linux and FreeBSD. Some limited testing has been done on other platforms/distributions (OpenBSD, Debian, Ubuntu, Darwin, Mac OS X, Solaris). If people wish to contribute patches to fix portability issues, I’d be happy to accept them. There are probably lots of bugs which have yet to surface. Please let me know if you encounter issues, fix a bug or just find the application useful.

Enjoy,
Joe
