ISO 9660 disk images from posted

Our friends at have given us seven very small disk images that are designed to demonstrate failings of particular open source Linux distributions.

You can view all of the images at The images you will find there includes:

These images should be directly copied to a hard drive or a partition. Forensic Linux distributions would use them as root file systems and execute proof-of-concept code during the boot.

MySQL tables for NIST NSRL RDS 2.26 posted

Ever want to have SQL access to the NIST RDS but didn’t want to spend a month building the MySQL tables? Well, we did too… So we took one of our 8-core, 32GB servers, imported all of the NSRL, and then put a tar file of the tables available for download on this server.

To use these files just download and put the files in your MySQL data directory. You’ll be up-and-running in no time.
