SARA v2.0.5 - The Security Auditor's Research Assistant (SARA) is a third generation security analysis tool that is based on the SATAN model, conforms to the Open Source model, is covered by the GNU open license, fosters a collaborative environment, and is updated on a weekly basis. The author of SAINT, Bob Todd, recently joined Advanced Research and has been working non-stop to evolve SATAN and the original SAINT concept to a community oriented product (i.e, SARA) which will be available to all. Advanced Research's philosophy relies heavily on software re-use. Rather than inventing a new module, SARA is adapted to interface to other community products. For instance, SARA interfaces with the popular NMAP package for superior "Operating System fingerprinting". Also, SARA provides a transparent interface to SAMBA for SMB security analysis. SARA's features include ( the [SARA] indicates that this is a new or improved feature when compared to SAINT or SATAN): Built-in report writer (by subnet or by database) [SARA], Built-in summary table generator [SARA], Gateway to external programs (e.g., NMAP) [SARA], CGI-BIN vulnerability testing (Unix and IIS) [SARA], SSH buffer overflow vulnerabilities [SARA], Current Sendmail vulnerabilities [SARA], IMAPD/POPD buffer overflow vulnerabilities [SARA], Current FTP and WU-FTP vulnerabilities [SARA], Tooltalk buffer overflow vulnerbilities [SARA], Netbus, Netbus-2, and Back Orifice vulnerabilities [SARA], Improved Operating System fingerprinting [SARA], Firewall-aware [SARA], Weekly updates [SARA], Probing for non-password accounts [SARA], NFS file systems exported to arbitrary hosts, NFS file systems exported to unprivileged programs, NFS file systems exported via the portmapper, NIS password file access from arbitrary hosts, REXD access from arbitrary hosts, X server access control disabled, Arbitrary files accessible via TFTP, Remote shell access from arbitrary hosts, Writable anonymous FTP home directory.

Changes: Now compiles under Red Hat 6.0, fixed bug in login.sara.
