Maltego 3.0.2 is here (soon..really soon)

Hey Guys,

We are at the stages where we are finally starting the build processes for 3.0.2 putting out deb's, rpm's and yes even an OSX dmg !

There are some fantastic new features in this version including:
  • Labelling, Colouring and Styling links
  • Path Selection ( find paths between two entities )
  • Entity and Link selection modes
  • Selecting of similar nodes
  • Copy and Paste between graphs (With and without links)
  • Copy to new graph (with and without links)
  • Copy to new graph with Neighbours/Parents/Children and the depth of that
  • Various bug fixes
  • Improved performance with links
The dev team has really put a lot of hard work into this release and it really shows!

In other news we have also been working on some new transforms to be released via the TDS at some stage ( most likely next week ) which will include the following:
  • Netblock expansion - take a Netblock to the IP addresses within it
  • Numeric hostname enumeration - enumerate hostnames numerically (so from mail.domain.tld look for mail1.domain.tld-mail99.domain.tld), with padding and so on
  • technology lookup - look up the various technologies used on particular websites (apache/jquery/joomla/etc)
  • Facebook GraphAPI Searching - lookup what has been said in the public space on facebook via the graphAPI ( think posts/videos/links ) and who said it!
And without further ado, a screenshot showing some of the built with and the new links!

Lastly, a special thank you from all of us over here to Nadeem Douba who really pulled through for us helping with the Mac release! Thanks guy!

And now back to building! Downloads soon!

Maltego 4 CE / Kali Linux release is ready for download!

Hi there,

We're happy to announce that Maltego 4 is now (finally) ready for the masses! We're releasing the community (free) edition today and the Kali distros have been updated by the kind people from Offensive Security (thanks Dookie/Muts!).  In other words - we're ready to roll on a major upgrade of your favorite information visualization tool.

(click on the image above to see our very grown-up/proper promotional video of Sandra the 15 year old Dachshund and Maltego/Kali Linux. !(We plan to screen this at our booth at a major conference.))

Our decision to make CaseFile free with the release of Maltego 4 had some interesting side-effects. In CaseFile importing data from CSV/XLS was enabled. So too printing. And reporting. So when we made CaseFile free it did not make sense to limit the Kali/CE releases - you'd simply open CaseFile, import the data and save the graph - then open in CE.

So - bottom line - reporting/printing/CSV import is now enabled in the free release…

Abracadabra! It's Sho(dan) time!

Shodan -- used by pentesters, stalkeˆWˆWˆWresearchers and data scientists everywhere to analyze information about computers on the Internet. From webcams to SCADA to looking at where various SSL information in certificates can tie organisations together. It is a common tool used by many different people. We really wanted to get some Maltego goodness on that!

TL;DR -- You can get the Shodan transforms in the transform hub right now. To use all of the different transform options (or you can stick with the free options) you can simply click on settings in the transform hub after installing to add your API key.

There have been transforms written for Shodan before, but we really felt like they needed refreshing. So we took it upon ourselves to look at the information provided by Shodan and decide how we could integrate it into the needs of Maltego users. We first started by looking at what information was readily and easily available and then if it was useful in an n-th order graph. This is…

Visualising the Bitcoin Blockchain in Maltego

This post will provide a quick overview of our new Maltego transforms for visualizing the Bitcoin blockchain. There are 11 new transforms in the seed which use’s API to query data from the blockchain.

(Screenshot's in this post are taken with the Maltego 4 beta release.)
Before we begin, it is important to have an understanding of how Bitcoin and their transactions work so I will start with an overview of some of the main concepts:
Bitcoin Overview
Bitcoin address: Bitcoin addresses are transaction endpoints that are used to send Bitcoin to another person. A person can generate as many addresses as they want and people should (which they often don’t) use a new address for every transaction that is made. An address is represented with a 26-35 sequence of alphanumeric characters and looks like this: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2. For a more in-depth explanation of Bitcoin addresses you can have a look at the Bitcoin Wiki here.
