Hello,

New here, but it seems there is a not a lot of traffic here at the forums and IRC connection isn't doing to well either. Ever think of starting a telegram group? For more social interaction between people using backbox? Distro's become much more fun when there is more interaction in the community.

Just a thought,
Tim
Hi Tim
we do have telegram group (Backbox Community)and that is why you found irc channel with low traffic. We have it for the last 2yrs maybe but we have plans to open to public soon.

in the meantime, if you want to join the group you can search by name or provide us your so we can add you.

Hi,
Recently I spun up a VM of Backbox, I have is set in a VNET that needs to go through a firewall, the fireall VM shared the Hosts IP.

Sometimes i see traffic from my host to a particular IP over SSL. I am not sure what that traffic is. It usually only happens when my Backbox VM is up and running.

Does Backbox by default connects to the Tor network?

found a solution here : http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2016/04/remove-guest-session-ubuntu-16-04/

obtain SU,

cd /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d

Then run
sh -c 'printf "[SeatDefaults]\nallow-guest=false\n" > /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-no-guest.conf'

it will create a new file in the directory.

restart your box and guest session will disappear.

Hi ostendali,

Thank you for your response, and having time for looking into the tool!

I wasn’t aware of the mentioned requirements.

For the similiraties with dirsearch. It’s true there is some sort of similarities, but the purpose of the tool and scans that bfac do is totally different.

Bfac tests for backup file artifacts, while dirsearch is a typical directory brute-forcer.

Bfac makes the following:
If the url for example is http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php

It checks for backup artifacts for import-data on many ways.

Such as:
Code:
http://example.com/custom-app/backup-import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php-bak
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php#
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bak
http://example.com/custom-app/~import-data.tmp
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.saved
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php_old
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy%20import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bck
http://example.com/custom-app/%23import-data.php%23
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.tar
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.org
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy_import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.bak
http://example.com/custom-app/.~lock.import-data.php%23
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.conf
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data-bkp.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data%20copy.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.sql.gz
http://example.com/custom-app/.import-data.php.swp
http://example.com/custom-app/.~import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data%20-%20Copy.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.back
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.bk
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.swo
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy_of_import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/~import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bakup
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bakup1
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bak1
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.tpl
http://example.com/custom-app/copy%20of%20import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bak.sql
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.save
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.save
http://example.com/custom-app/~%24import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/_import-data.php.swp
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.2
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.tmp
http://example.com/custom-app/%20import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy_(1)_of_import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.bak.sql.bz2
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.sql
http://example.com/custom-app/_import-data.php.swo
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.sav
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy%20of%20import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.original
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.tar
http://example.com/custom-app/_import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.orig
http://example.com/custom-app/Copy_(2)_of_import-data.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.old
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data-backup.php
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php~
http://example.com/custom-app/import-data.php.bck


This can not be done in Dirsearch. Dirsearch performs directory brute-force on http://example.com/custom-app/ based on a predefined wordlist. It does not go and checks for artifacts that are not found in wordlists.

Typical large wordlists *may* contain a predefined input for common files like index.php and wp-config.php, but it does not have anything more. 


The only similarity in term of functionality between dirsearch and bfac is that bfac holds a predefined non-dynamic words/checks for DVCS repos, this is a small addition to the tool, but the main concept is checking for artifacts.

Furthermore, let’s say I added a typical directory brute-forcing feature in the future in addition to the dynamic backup-file artifacts testing. Bfac would have a cool addition that most if not all directory brute-forcers have, including dirsearch and dirbuster, which is detection techniques.

BFAC uses multiple detection techniques instead of only checking the HTTP status code in order to avoid false-positives, and to increase accuracy.

After all, I truly respect and appreciate BackBox team regarding the decision of adding bfac to the default installation, but I hope If you can have another review at the tool based on the input.

Thanks,
Mazin Ahmed

I really need to disable guest session completely. One must authenticate before logging in to the system. I have USB drives plugged in and guests will be able to read files from that. NOT good.

Please help.
