Hello IT Pro, 

I’m excited to share we’ve just had our 272nd review (88% are 5 star/98% are 4 star)!

“Great monitoring with a responsive company behind it!
Currently using their free Mail Flow Monitor service to know about mail issues before users start to call.
Have to give them major credit as they called to see if I needed any help setting up about ten minutes after signing up. That’s for a free product too! 
Shout out to Louis for checking up on things — if they care this much about customers using their free products, I have no problem switching to them for future services if/when we need them.”

But on with this week’s tools…! Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Free Tool

Cuckoo Sandbox is an advanced, modular, automated malware analysis system. This open-source solution can: analyze malicious files (executables, office documents, pdf files, emails etc.) and websites under Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Android virtualized environments; trace API calls and general behavior of a file and distill it into high-level information and signatures that are easily understood; dump and analyze network traffic, even when encrypted with SSL/TLS — with native network routing support; and perform advanced memory analysis of the infected virtualized system. Because of its modular design, any aspect of the analysis environment can be customized. Thanks for this one go to NerdBlender, who likes it as a “sandbox for malware analysis.”


A Little Humor

Shit Sales People Say is a humorous Twitter account lamenting the difficulties sales people tend to create for those who have to implement. A bit of fun to break up the day of any sysadmin who’s stuck trying to deliver on all those promises. A shout out to kenelbow for the suggestion!


Another Free Tool

Censys allows you to find and monitor any server on the Internet. It shows what servers and devices are exposed on your network, so you can find vulnerabilities. Suggested by videoflyguy because the site “constantly updates their results, basically just keeps port scanning the internet and reports the results. You get 10 free searches per day, and it has helped me find several weak points in the network.”


A Website

NixCraft is an online community of new and experienced Linux and Unix sysadmins. Content includes research and discussion on various open-source software, including enterprise Linux distributions, traditional Unix operating systems like OpenBSD/AIX/HP-UX, cloud computing, building scalable and high availability infrastructure, networking/DNS/Web/Proxy/office servers, security and firewalls, automation and infrastructure deployment, Desktop Linux, Apple OS X Unix operating systems, best practices and easy-to-follow tutorials.


A Podcast

Smashing Security is a podcast featuring computer security industry veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault. The hosts discuss cybercrime, hacking, and online privacy with assorted expert guests in an informative and entertaining style. Winner: “Best Security Podcast 2018.”


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
