Trash Taxi

Superuser Discovery and Cleanup
Unrestricted administrator access is the bane of security control schemes in any large enterprise. In the real world, it's difficult to completely eradicate superuser accounts because there are plenty of legitimate reasons for operators and developers - and automated systems - to be granted these privileges to keep the IT cogs running. Nevertheless, edge cases and temporary access often extend into configuration drift. This is why Patrick Cable and the team at Threat Stack will be releasing Trash Taxi at Black Hat Arsenal, 'to help us understand why people use 'sudo -i' and also clean up hosts that have had arbitrary commands run on them.'
