"... A few days ago, we released details of two unpatched critical authentication bypass and root-RCE vulnerabilities we found on very widespread GPON Routers. The vulnerabilities, as we outlined, affects over a million users and is easily accessible through sites like Shodan and ZoomEye.
Shortly after our initial discovery, we contacted the responsible parties. Unfortunately, a patch was not available, and it didn’t seem to be in development either. So, we released the details to inform the affected users of the risks involved in using these modems.
However, we noticed (thanks to 360 Netlab) that attackers began exploiting both these vulnerabilities (CVE-2018-10561 & CVE-2018-10562) to add the affected devices and their networks into their botnets. To prevent more attacks, we took matters into our hands. We are releasing a user-friendly patch below ...":
This is a very simple beta release of a program to extract email addresses or other regular expressions from text files.
This is a very simple task. I needed to extract email addresses from bounced emails in order to remove them from the donationcoder mailing lists. This is a fairly simple task for a commandline regular expression extractor tool, but I like to be able to drag+drop and get some visual interaction.
I tried a few "free" tools for doing this and they were ALL adware, shareware, feature limited. Just horrible. I don't know when we got to a point where people think they can list software unambiguously as "free" and have it be filled with adware or be horribly crippled until you buy the full version.
So I decided to write my own tool, with hopes for improving it. The goals are similar to CodeByters Linebyter which I have used in the past but whose source code was lost.
Again this is a very simple tool, it has a few minor features that make it useful for specific tasks:
Again this is a very niche tool but I may add features to it to make it more useful for other tasks. If you already have a good regular expression "extractor" that you are happy with, this is unlikely to replace it.
