Transform Tuesdays! Free Maltego Transforms!

Yes, it's not nearly as popular (yet) as Patch Tuesday, but at least it's an alliteration.

We have been working on a bunch of new TDS based transforms that we would like to share with the community in the hope that the community responds with more transforms of their own.

Today we will be releasing two sets of transforms:

BuiltWith.com integration via their fantastic API
Enumerate server side technologies of Websites and URLs. These include things like CMS (Joomla, Wordpress), Server information (Apache, IIS) and other technologies used (Jquery, Youtube, Silverlight, etc)

Various useful infrastructure transforms
Couple of transforms to help with infrastructure enumeration including Netblock to IP addresses and Netblock to Netblocks.

How do I use these Transforms within Maltego?
You will need two things to use any of the upcoming TDS transforms (and any we post in the future).

  1. Maltego Entity Objects file (mtz) with any custom entities that are used for these transforms. NOTE: This is only needed if there are custom entities.

  2. Seed URL: This will point your Maltego interface to where it can find new transforms.
Enough! Show me with pictures!

Importing custom entites (Where needed)

Click on Import Entities

Select the supplied Maltego Entity Objects file (mtz)

Select the entities you wish to add

Add it to a group

Enjoy your crisp new entities


Discovering Transforms:

Click discover transforms


Add a name for your seed and the supplied URL


Neeeeeext

Neeext

Neeeext

Finished! You now have some crisp new transforms!


In the upcoming posts we will release the mtz as well as the Seed URLs for the new transforms.

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 Blockchain.info’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.
