A chilling episode of the Twilight Zone that first aired 60 years in the past centered on a younger boy (performed by Invoice Mumy) who pissed off his dad and mom by insisting he speaks to his grandmother every day on the toy telephone she had given him simply earlier than she died. When his grieving and exasperated mom lastly grabbed the telephone to toss it away, she was startled to listen to her mom’s voice on the road.
The episode touched on the yearnings all of us share of talking one final time to a beloved one now not with us.
If a just lately disclosed Microsoft patent involves fruition, we’ll be capable of see, hear and converse with long-gone kin. Or extra precisely, with 3-D movement photographs full with real looking voice reconstruction and distinct character traits culled from a trove of the person’s communications on social media platforms. In brief, a chat bot.
“Making a Conversational Chat Bot of a Particular Individual” is the dry however correct title of a patent filed by Dustin Abramson and Joseph Johnson Jr. of Microsoft in 2017 and accepted this month.
We’ll guide you through the process of using Homebrew package manager to install post-exploit security tools on macOS to further assess compromised system vulnerabilities found in your Apple equipment.
In this final article in the Homebrew series, we look at the availability of post-exploit tools you can use to further assess vulnerabilities in computing devices. You can use these to continue following the attack chain in an effort to establish permission escalation, persistence, and pivot from one compromised system to another, extending the attack throughout the network.
This part of the engagement is not about compromising the system initially: That is the exploit phase. But the post-exploit process deals with the initial level of access obtained on the compromised system and evolving it into something far more in order to obtain as much data on the underlying system and any hosts that might be communicating with it over the same network segment and beyond.
By using the proper tools, security admins and penetration testers can perform a deep dive on the system and continue the attack on subsequent systems encountered during the additional reconnaissance process
