EPISODE 126-A Bad Week for OSINT, Great for Privacy

EPISODE 123-Researching & Acquiring Data Breaches & Leaks

This week my guest Jesse and I talk about researching data breaches and leaks, and the conversation goes much deeper than any other discussion I have had on this show about the topic. This should offer some insight for both the privacy crowd and the OSINT enthusiasts. I also discuss the latest privacy news since the last show.

EPISODE 122-Listener Questions

This week I discuss the Firefox Addons certificate fiasco and tackle numerous listener questions about privacy, security, and OSINT concerns.

SHOW NOTES:

INTRO:

Firefox Addons Issues:
https://hacks.mozilla.org/2019/05/technical-details-on-the-recent-firefox-add-on-outage/

PRIVACY QUESTIONS:

You mentioned a network-wide ad blocker last week. Have you tried Pi-Hole? If so, any thoughts?

Did you know that Brew for Mac has Google analytics embedded into it? Does that change your opinion of using it?

if someone went through a complete opt out process and removed everything connected to their home address, then began using a PO/CMRA/PMB for all official mail, would you recommend to resubmit the opt outs for the PMB address?

Purism recently announced their ‘Google replacement’ concept, Librem One. What are your thoughts?

You talked about some researchers accesing an open mongodb or elastic “database”, isn’t this illegal under CFAA? One thing is finding them and alerting the company but another thing is actually going through the “files” and downloading the data. Can you please talk about this?

I was wondering if you had any general tips for someone at my age. (18-24). I find that I do not appear on many (if any at all) of the OSINT resources that you have on your site, probably as a result of my age. I have become a legal adult only a few years ago, and I want to take advantage of this fact. How can I PREVENT myself from appearing on any of these databases etc.

Someone I know works in the small loan industry and they scolded me for not having a social media presence, because they take social media into account when approving loans. How likely is this to be a consideration in various sectors like finance in the US?

When traveling abroad, should I take a travel-only phone with me?

I use the Bluetooth feature on my car stereo. Is this a privacy risk?

I understand the use of a VPN to protect one’s traffic from that “hacker in a coffeeshop” idea. But why use one at home? If you fear that your ISP is watching your traffic, aren’t you just handing that power over to the VPN company now to do the same?

My estate planning attorney checked out titling our home with a Living or Land Trust. Unfortunately, in my county if you title in either way then you have to forfeit the homestead tax credit. This credit is a big portion of figuring the property taxes you owe. If you remove the credit you end up paying a lot more taxes – which I don’t have. Is there some other trick or way to still get the homestead tax credit yet have one’s primary home be titled in a Living or Land Trust?

As a listener with a family and children, being able to call 911 at home and when in public is a priority. How do you handle that situation with MySudo?

OSINT QUESTIONS:

While currently working on developing my OSINT skill set, I often wonder what would be 3 things that any good OSINT investigator should be able to do.

Do you have any preference in virtual currency search options? It seems there are a ton of sites to search wallets and BTC addresses but all have different results.

New Online Investigation (OSINT) Resources

Posted on April 9th, 2019

It has been a while since I posted a collection of new OSINT resources, so this one is lengthy. The following were recently added to the online search tools, live training curriculum, and online training courses.

Trumail API (https://api.trumail.io/v2/lookups/json?email=test@inteltechniques.com): This API was demonstrated in my recent webinar about email search. It serves as a verification option to identify legitimate email addresses and filter burner accounts. It also explicitly identifies disposable and free email services, while announcing whether an account is a catch-all.

Spycloud (https://portal.spycloud.com/endpoint/enriched-stats/test@test.com): This API provides a positive or negative indicator for an email address present in the Spycloud collection of data breaches. While the information is minimal, no API key is required. It also identifies the number of breached email records for the domain.

 

VIN-NHTSA (https://vpic.nhtsa.dot.gov/api/vehicles/decodevinextended/3GTEK13Y87G527460?format=json): This is an official government VIN search for vehicle make/model details. The output is very detailed, and below is a portion.

“Message”: “Results returned successfully”,
“SearchCriteria”: “VIN:3GTEK13Y87G527460”,
“Value”: “GENERAL MOTORS LLC”,
“Value”: “Sierra”,
“Value”: “2007”,
“Value”: “1500 (1/2 ton)”,
“Value”: “TRUCK “,

FAXVIN (https://www.faxvin.com/): This alternative option allows you to enter a VIN to identify full details about the vehicle (but no owner information).

Vehicle History (https://www.vehiclehistory.com/): Vehicle search by VIN which provides details about the make/model/recalls/thefts/etc.

O’Reilly License (https://www.oreillyauto.com/): This option allows you to enter a VIN or license plate to identify full details about the vehicle (but no owner information).

Carvana (https://www.carvana.com): This alternative option allows you to enter a VIN or license plate to identify full details about the vehicle (but no owner information).

 

Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/search/str/Live/videos-live): A less powerful replacement for the Facebook Live Video Map, which was eliminated earlier this year.

Facebook Intersect Search Tool (https://www.osintcombine.com/facebook-intersect-search-tool): Graphical option for Facebook intersect searching.

 

Carbon Dating The Web (http://carbondate.cs.odu.edu): This service uses public archives of a domain to estimate the creation date. The following demo of my own site was only off by two months.


DomainBigData ( https://domainbigdata.com): This is a typical Whois lookup site, but contains a free historic record, as seen below. This can identify the owner of a website which currently possesses a private registration.

URLScan (https://urlscan.io/): This resource provides an additional screen capture of the target address, which is often dated prior to undesired website changes or deletions. This is a small supplement to archive sites.

 

Website Informer (https://website.informer.com):This offers yet another unique historical view of a domain.

 

DomainIQ – Hosting Research (https://www.domainiq.com/hosting_research): The screen capture archive of this resource has been extremely helpful in the past. It is currently down, but will hopefully return. When working, the following screen would be full of archived screen captures of a website.

 

FluidDATA Podcast Search Engine (https://fluiddata.com): This resource allows you to search the spoken text of many podcasts. Useful for searching email addresses such as mike at gmail dot com.

BitcoinAbuse (https://www.bitcoinabuse.com): This Bitcoin service identifies incidents of malicious use of cryptocurrencies. Great for tracking the use of Bitcoin in email scams.

 

Google: This Google Search operator will find practically any type of file publicly linked, using the word Book as an example.

 

AIOSearch (http://www.aiosearch.com): This service searches the most popular file sharing hosts.

 

The following three background removal services will attempt to remove any undesired content from an image. This can lead to better results when conducting a reverse image search in attempts to identify a person or object.

Remove.bg (https://www.remove.bg/)
Clipping Magic (https://clippingmagic.com/)
Background Burner (https://burner.bonanza.com/)
