Metasploit: The New Shiny

It's been a while since I've written a blog post about new stuff in Metasploit [https://www.rapid7.com/products/metasploit/download/] (and I'm not sure if the editors will let me top the innuendo of the last one [/2017/02/09/metasploit-framework-valentines-update/]). But I'm privileged to announce that I'm speaking about Metasploit twice next month: once at the FSec 17 Conference [http://fsec.foi.hr/] in Varaždīn, Croatia September 7-8, and a second time at UNITED 2017 [https://unitedsummit.org/

You've Got 0-Day!

RSA Conference 2017 Exhibits - Is Your Artificial Intelligence Only 1.0?

If you walked the RSA Conference floor(s) in San Francisco this year, you probably needed to sit down a few times in passing the 680 vendors - not because of the distance or construction as much as from the sensory overload and Rubik's cube challenge of matching vendors with the problems they address. Since Anton Chuvakin already stole my thunder by declaring there was no theme [http://blogs.gartner.com/anton-chuvakin/2017/02/22/rsa-2017-whats-the-theme/] with such effective snark it made me j

Set Up for Success at BSidesLV's Proving Ground

One of the most nerve-wrecking things a person can do is give a talk to a group of people. As a matter of fact, approximately 3 out of 4 people suffer from speech anxiety. This is further exacerbated in an industry and community like ours where many of us are introverts and/or suffer from "imposter syndrome". We think we aren't as smart or good at something as we actually are. We often feel like someone else has done a better job explaining a theory or area in information security than we ever c

UNITEDSummit 2016: An attendee's perspective

Editor's Note: This is a guest post from Mike Perez, Implementation Engineer for Cryptzone. Since my initial introduction to Rapid7's UNITED Summit customer conference in 2015, I had been looking forward to the opportunity to attend again. The conference is a mixture of good fun, great food, and excellent content in my hometown of Boston at a vibrant venue (the Seaport Hotel).  The event covers Rapid7's product line and how the offerings can help their customers.  However, in my opinion, Rapid7

#UNITEDSummit 2016: Empowerment

Empowerment. It was the theme for this year's UNITED Summit and each talk, training, intensive and networking break gave attendees the chance to learn about the challenges and opportunities that impact professionals to help drive their security program forward.
