Cisco-Torch – Mass scanning, Fingerprinting and Exploitation Tool

Cisco Torch mass scanning, fingerprinting, and exploitation tool was written while working on the next edition of the “Hacking Exposed Cisco Networks”, since the tools available on the market could not meet our needs.

The main feature that makes Cisco-torch different from similar tools is the extensive use of forking to launch multiple scanning processes in the background for maximum scanning efficiency. Also, it uses several methods of application layer fingerprinting simultaneously, if needed. We wanted something fast to discover remote Cisco hosts running Telnet, SSH, Web, NTP and SNMP services and launch dictionary attacks against the services discovered.

How Cisco Torch Works…

Syntax

Clone : GitHub

cisco – torch <options> <IP,hostname,network>
COMMANDS:
Using config file torch.conf...
Loading include and plugin ...
 version
usage: cisco-torch  <ip,hostname,network>

or: cisco-torch  -F

Available options:
-O 
-A		All fingerprint scan types combined
-t		Cisco Telnetd scan
-s		Cisco SSHd scan
-u		Cisco SNMP scan
-g		Cisco config or tftp file download
-n		NTP fingerprinting scan
-j		TFTP fingerprinting scan
-l 	loglevel
		c  critical (default)
		v  verbose
		d  debug
-w		Cisco Webserver scan
-z		Cisco IOS HTTP Authorization Vulnerability Scan
-c		Cisco Webserver with SSL support scan
-b		Password dictionary attack (use with -s, -u, -c, -w , -j or -t only)
-V		Print tool version and exit
examples:	cisco-torch -A 10.10.0.0/16
		cisco-torch -s -b -F sshtocheck.txt
		cisco-torch -w -z 10.10.0.0/16
		cisco-torch -j -b -g -F tftptocheck.txt

API Vulnerability Scanning

71% of the internet traffic comes from APIs so APIs have become soft targets for hackers.Securing APIs is a simple workflow provided you find API specific vulnerabilities and protect them.In the upcoming webinar, join Vivek Gopalan, VP of Products at Indusface as he takes you through the fundamentals of API vulnerability scanning..
Key takeaways include:

  • Scan API endpoints for OWASP API Top 10 vulnerabilities
  • Perform API penetration testing for business logic vulnerabilities
  • Prioritize the most critical vulnerabilities with AcuRisQ
  • Workflow automation for this entire process
