IP » Target – v1.8.2 Release

On April 6, 2020

Version 1.8.2 includes several new features and improvements, with maybe the most important being the long awaited IP»Target mod announced last November. Lets step through the major changes in this release…

IP » Target

It is now possible to enter a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) as the Host’s primary identifier. In this example, we’ve shown the possibility for “example.com” and “mail.example.com” as separate hosts. Of course you can still use an IP address to identify a host.

The Import routines have been updated to capture domain names when they have been used to scan a target. For example:

nmap -sC -sV -oA tcp -vv example.com

will now create/update records for the “example.com” host. The Service Command Library automatically uses the Host’s domain name when used as the host identifier:

We’re hoping this change will greatly benefit our pentest community, as well as be a big boost for our bug bounty hunters! Each sub-domain in the program’s scope could have its own Host record, with separate port lists, notes and findings.

Capturing Port State

The Import routines have also been updated to capture Port State. This information is included in Nmap’s XML output, and the possible values are Open, Closed, Filtered, Unfiltered, Open|Filtered, or Closed|Filtered.

Port State is displayed in two places. First, on the left side of the screen in the Host List Panel shown in the screenshot at the top of this article. Second, on the Port page, shown in the screenshot above.

As this is a new feature, previously captured ports will need to have their value set manually, or you can re-import the associated Nmap XML file.

Lastly, it should be noted Port State is separate from Port Status, which is a self assigned note to track which ports have been reviewed or may be vulnerable.

Engagement Archives

Got old engagements cluttering up your Mission Control? Click the new Archive button in the top right corner of each Engagement card and it will drop down into the Archived Engagements section. Don’t worry if this section is not visible, it will appear once you archive your first engagement. Click any of the archived engagements to reinstate it to active mode.

And So Much More…

CVE Database –
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database is now searchable directly in PTWS (https://pentest.ws/tools/cve). This functions similar to the Exploit-DB feature with full keyword search capabilities.

Engagement Wide Credentials –
On the Engagement Console tab, there is a new Engagement Credentials section which shows credentials from all Hosts within that Engagement.

Export as CSV –
Now you can export Engagements and Hosts as CSV files, in addition to JSON files. Use the Export button in the top right of their respective pages.

Hobby Tier, Yearly Payment Option –
You can now pay a full year of Hobby Tier access through the Membership page. Simply change your plan to yearly, and on your next renewal date you will be changed a single yearly price (currently $39.80)

Be sure to head over to the Feature Request page on the PTWS Support site to submit your ideas for the next version.

General Command Library – Version 1.8.0 Release

On November 14, 2019

Today we are announcing the release of PenTest.WS Version 1.8.0 and with it comes the General Command Library!

General Command Library

The General Command Library (GCL) is a place to store all your frequently used, and not so frequently used, general system commands. Much like how the Service Command Library works for services, the GCL works for:

  • System enumeration
  • Privilege escalation
  • Shell escapes
  • File transfer shortcuts
  • Powershell download cradles
  • Pivot tunnels
  • … and anything else!!

Each command can be organized by Operating System, Category, and Sub-Category values. These filters are user-created and self-populated as more and more commands are entered into your GCL system. Additionally, you can quickly search for keywords such as “wmic” or “iex” if you’re looking for a specific functionality.

Filters are sticky, so you can navigate away from the GCL screen and when you return later, you’re dropped right back into the list of commands you were previously viewing.

Availability: the General Command Library has been pushed to all platforms and is ready for immediate use.
– Free Tier: currently limited to five commands
– Hobby & Pro Tier: unlimited command capacity
– Pro Tier: run your Software Update from the Admin Panel

Service Command Library – Free Tier Availability Update

The Service Command Library (SCL) is now accessible on the Free Tier. The SCL is one of the most popular features of the PenTest.WS platform and its usefulness has proven to be an incredible time saver.

SCL on the Free Tier includes up to two commands per service.

New Template List Format

All template list pages have been updated to a more compact table format. This allows more commands per screen real estate.

New Template List Format

Misc Improvements & Bug Fixes

SCL Notes: requested on the Support Forums, SCL records now include a Notes field. These notes will appear on the Port page alongside the service command entry.

Note Pages Clobber Bug: in certain circumstances, it was possible for Note Pages to overwrite the wrong Note Page. However, the content could be recovered through the History functionality. This bug has been fixed.

Note Page Rename Bug: tab renaming functionality has been restored. Double click on a Note Page tab to rename each tab.

Coming soon… IP » Target

An exciting change is coming to the PTWS system. Currently, Hosts are tracked by IP Address. After the IP->Target mod included in the next release, it will be possible to enter a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) as the Host’s primary identifier.

All tools will be updated to support a Target in addition to an IP Address. Import an Nmap XML scan based on a FQDN? No problem. Need to launch a dirsearch command against a FQDN? Sure!

This change will be a big boost for all the Bug Bounty Hunters in our community. Each sub-domain in the program’s scope could have its own Host record, with separate port lists, notes and findings.

We’re always looking for ways to improve the PenTest.WS platform. Head on over to the Support Forums and submit a Feature Request.

Pro Tier Release

On August 3, 2019

Two years after initial development began on PenTest.WS, today we are officially releasing Pro Tier!

PenTest.WS Pro is an offline stand-alone version of the online web application designed to run directly inside your Kali Linux virtual machine. The Pro Tier was developed for professional penetration testers who must comply with strict non-disclosure agreements or those who operate within a restricted network environment.

Get Pro Tier at store.pentest.ws

All the benefits of the Hobby Tier, plus:

  • Pro Tier Software Updates
  • Offline Stand-Alone Application
  • Two Modes of Operation:
    • Solo Mode
    • Intranet Mode
  • Host Subnetting System
  • Host Filtering System
  • User Maintenance Control Panel

Pro Tier’s subnetting system allows a penetration tester to breakdown a large engagement, maintain scope, and focus on individual segments of a target network.

These subnets can be used in scan templates:

Intranet Mode:

PenTest.WS Pro installed on your intranet server allows your entire team of penetration testers to track hosts, services and record their findings as they work on client engagements.

Solo Mode:

For individual penetration testers, or field work operatives, PenTest.WS Pro runs directly inside your Kali Virtual Machine.

FAQs:

Who owns the application’s data?

You! The PenTest.WS Pro Tier Application maintains a PostgreSQL database stored on the same physical machine or virtual environment as the binary Application. The data contained in this database is the property of the licensee.

How do renewals work?

PenTest.WS Pro Tier licenses are purchased on a per-user-per-year basis. The date of first purchase becomes your license anniversary date and the license will be renewed on this date each year.

[ Read More ]

Can I purchase additional licenses?

Additional user licenses may be purchased throughout the year, with each user license sold at a prorated price based on the number of days remaining on your current license.
