Page 2 of 3 for $BLOG_TITLE | A code-focused blog about security
These are links that I found interesting as I was (and still am) learning about Android application security and I’m putting it here in case it can help someone else!
Nahamsec has an excellent presentation about recon in which he discusses, among many other things, the topic of “Digital Dumpster Diving” and google dorking. This is mostly a manual process but I thought I could automate at least some of it.
I’ve been a software developer for about 8 years, but as of last month I’ve made the switch to infosec and now I’m a security engineer on the application security team at GitLab. When I started thinking about making this move I looked for someone with a similar background documenting their experience and didn’t find much so I’m writing this for the next person who’s going to do the same thing. This isn’t a step by step guide, but rather just things that helped me and might help you.
Firebase Remote Config is a service that allows developers to host and easily modify settings for their mobiles apps. It’s not supposed to be secret information and it’s not designed to be private, however automating the recovery of Firebase Remote Config is very easy and can reveal some details about the application’s inner workings. You can even get lucky and find secrets that should have never been there in the first place (I once saw AWS credentials!).
Intigriti is once again offering us an XSS challenge. The first one had cryptic code and a complicated setup between the page and an
