Yeah, there isn't anything here yet work too much.  Eventually I will have posted a list of all the spam that I receive in my email account each day, with daily and monthly totals.  That script is a work in progress right now!

Here are some things that you can check out though:

A careless user:

I won't say where this screenshot was obtained from, but I bet it is from someone who will be developing carpel-tunnel syndrome MUCH sooner than anyone else I know!  lol

PacketShaper Web-Redirect

I wrote a collection of unix shell scripts for blocking users on our campus network.  This is typically used for when we find machines that are infected with a virus or a worm.  Your just add the IP/hostname onto our PacketShaper, and then any web page they try to get to they will be redirected to our cleanup web page, with directions on how to clean their machine and get it patched.  Theses scripts allow the HelpDesk to unblock machines that are on the PacketShaper block list after they have verified that the machine is in fact clean.  Check the README file out for more instructions.

SecureCRT Cisco Configuration and Firmware Update

I wrote this quick collection of scripts when we recently received a large number of new Cisco switches that needed to be updated with the latest firmware and configured with a base configuration (loaded from a text file).  This all takes place through the serial port on your computer via the Cisco console cable.  I modified one of the sample scripts SecureCRT came with.  You will need to edit each of the scripts and give it the path to your tftp server and firmware update file, as well as a text file containing your base configuration.  After doing this and running the script, it will prompt you for the HOSTNAME of the switch, IP address of the switch, INVENTORY TAG #, and ROOM location of the switch.  There are several things to modify in the scripts themselves.  Check them out before running them.  I plan to eventually make this more portable and have 1 script instead of a separate script for each switch type.

McAfee v7 Home AutoInstaller/Uninstaller AutoIT Script

Myself and one of our student HelpDesk workers (mostly him I might add) put our heads together on this project.  What this script will do is check for any known antivirus software you have installed on your computer (we have a list of about 10 different packages and their associated registry keys).  It will then uninstall the software, download McAfee v7 Home or McAfee v4.51 depending on which version of Windows your runing (v4.51 for 95/98/ME) and install it, and register the application.  I have removed the links to our version of McAfee files, but you can easily create them -- I just created them using a zip file and then used a zip to exe converter (we use the -d option on the command line...it's all in the script).  Make sure you have the latest version of AutoIT v3 installed as that is what this was built with.  Also download the md5sum.exe and wget.exe files into the same directory for when you compile with AutoIT, these files will be included in the setup file. 

Requirements:

Security CD Scanning Script v1.01 (For Windows Updates/AntiVirus Software and others)

This script will check Windows based machines for the following:  It will do the following:

  • Windows Updates that you define in it (XP SP2, 2000 SP4 w/ RPC fixes, etc) for Win 98/ME/2000/XP. 
  • Check XP CD Key for "FCKGW" invalid key for SP2 upgrade
  • Check for any known antivirus software you have installed on your computer (we have a list of about 10 different packages and their associated registry keys) and uninstall it and install whatever AV software you want. 
  • Install a hosts file to block popups, etc.
  • Set the IE bits for certain ActiveX controls. 
  • Check the language of Windows and only run if it's English based.
  • Clean temp files
  • Clean prefetch
  • Run Trend SysClean to clean common viruses
  • Run MS Sasser cleaner
  • Run MS MyDoom cleaner
  • Run MS Nachi/Blaster cleaner
  • Install QFECheck
  • Configure Automatic Windows Updates
  • Configure IE Cache settings
  • Disable/Enable screen saver while running the script
  • Install SpyBot v1.3 and update definitions if necessary
  • Run SpyBot and clean found spyware
  • Enable XP SP2 firewall
  • Install XP SP2
  • Check for active network connection (if network cable is plugged in)
  • Install 2000 SP4 and associated hotfixes
  • Install IE6 SP1 on 98/ME/2000 if necessary
  • Install Windows Installer v3 if necessary
  • Keep a log file of activity
  • Probably a lot more stuff that I'm forgetting!

Requirements:

This is still a work in progress.  If you use any of my code or plan on using this at your institution and distributing it, please give credit where credit is due!
