How Excessive Admin Features of MSCCM Can Lead to Larger Security Headaches

At DEF CON 2012 in Las Vegas I sat through a presentation titled “Owning One to Rule them All,” hosted by penetration testers Dave Kennedy and Dave DeSimone. They discussed a recent penetration test that utilized Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager (MSCCM) to gain access to essentially an entire network of computers. MSCCM is intended to streamline the management of multiple devices – desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets – within IT infrastructures. While a tool like MSCCM may seem convenient, granting too many administrative features can lead to more serious network security headaches, including breaches.

Twitter Search Results for “Larry Merchant” Littered with Spam

Screenshot of Twitter search results littered with tweets linking to spam websites

On September 17th of 2011, boxing fans worldwide tuned into what was expected to be one of the more exciting matches of the year. The highly revered and undefeated Floyd Mayweather, Jr. returned to the ring after a 16-month break to face Victor Ortiz, who entered the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as the World Boxing Council welterweight champion. The bout ended with a fourth round knockout of Ortiz by the highly favored Mayweather, albeit via what some called in cheap shot fashion. During the post-fight interview conducted by renowned analyst, Larry Merchant, Mayweather justified his fourth round actions and retaliated against Larry’s questions about the controversial ending. At the end of his rant, Mayweather insulted Larry and demanded he be fired by HBO. Larry stamped the verbal exchange by stating that if he were fifty years younger he’d “kick” Mayweather’s “@*$.” As unlikely as that would ever be, the heated verbal exchange stunned the viewing masses, and online spammers quickly took note.
