kandi X-RAY | watchdog Summary

watchdog is a Python library typically used in Security applications. watchdog has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has high support. However watchdog build file is not available. You can download it from GitHub.

Watchog is an integration of open source security tools aimed to provide a holistic security view for a given domain/IP. The way Watchdog is built, it can be used by product security teams, red teams and also by bug bounty hunters to get a 360 view of any Internet property it scans. Given a list of domains/IP's it has the capability to perform a network scan, feed the output to open source web app scanners like Google's skip-fish and wapiti, perform tech stack analysis and determine if the stack has any known CVE’s. Watchdog is designed considering the use case necessary to know all open services and its corresponding technologies for the endpoints you own, exposed over the Internet. As a company grows, it’s foot-prints grow on the World Wide Web leaving it's product security team with herculean task of maintaining an inventory of all the services and technologies exposed. This becomes further crucial at the event of a zero-day outbreak for a particular protocol or a third party product which might affect public endpoints of the company. WatchDog has the ability to scan all endpoints and perform technology version analysis on the services it detects and map this information with it’s rich CVE database maintained and updated locally.

            Summoning multiples containers from a single containers using outside data
            Asked 2022-Mar-21 at 14:16

            I've made two python application.

            1. a watchdog application, always running, that is looking for new data in a folder. If new data is detected and match all the conditions, it send the data to the next step.
            2. a python analysis application that is processing the data and sending back the result in a folder near the watchdog application.

            It works well and the watchdog and call several instances of the python analysis application without problems.

            I now need to use Docker. I'm learning it.

            I manage to make 2 Dockerfile, and with some testing data already in the container, the two images works well separately.

            I want to find the best make to make it works with Docker.

            My questions :

            1. I found on Stackoverflow that if you need two containers working together, you need to define a network in your composer. Since I only have 1 container running 24/7 and the rest is just instances of the same images, should I still make a network ?

            2. How is the best way to load the data ? Should the watchdog access from a folder outside a container, copy it inside a volume (defined in the composer file), and allow containers from the python analysis app to access it and write the result back in this volume ? Can this volume be accessible like a regular folder for non-tech users ?

            Please, be tolerant with my questions, I'm very new to Docker. Many thanks !



            Answered 2022-Mar-21 at 14:16

            If you run your images via compose, they will automatically be in a docker network together. That would allow them to communicate.
            Either by IP, which is not recommended, since the IPS are dynamic, or container name, or compose service name.

            In the below example, the watchdog could reach the analysis service by the name analysis. For example http://analysis:8080.

            You also want to create a volume and let the containers share this volume, so that the watchdog can see the files the analysis service creates, if I understand this correctly.



            Enable use of images from the local library on Kubernetes

            Answered 2022-Mar-16 at 08:10

            If your image has a latest tag, the Pod's ImagePullPolicy will be automatically set to Always. Each time the pod is created, Kubernetes tries to pull the newest image.

            Try not tagging the image as latest or manually setting the Pod's ImagePullPolicy to Never. If you're using static manifest to create a Pod, the setting will be like the following:

            This seems to be a bug in the Proxmox_kvm Ansible Module. I have the same issue with the same code. I found this bugreport:, fixes are already merged but not released yet.

            In the meantime I fixed this by installing the Ansible community.general collection following this manual:

            Can't deploy streamlit app on
            Asked 2021-Dec-25 at 14:42

            I am working with a simple ML model with streamlit. It runs fine on my local machine inside conda environment, but it shows Error installing requirements when I try to deploy it on
            The error message is the following:



            Answered 2021-Dec-25 at 14:42

            Streamlit share runs the app in a linux environment meaning there is no pywin32 because this is for windows.

            Delete the pywin32 from the requirements file and also the pywinpty==1.1.6 for the same reason.

            After deleting these requirements re-deploy your app and it will work.



            Python cfn_tools module won't load in AWS CodeBuild running in AWS CodePipeline
            Asked 2021-Dec-20 at 19:11

            I have been getting the following error in my CodeBuild execution: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cfn_tools'

            Interesting note, the first time I ran this through CodeBuild with this module I had no issues. It only started happening after I made my next gitHub push that kicked off my pipeline that I saw this. The files that are related to this didn't change, and the modifications in that next push were to an unrelated section of the repo.

            I have since tried to do:

            • pip install cfn-tools & pip3 install cfn-tools which mentioned that the module was already installed. These were added to the BuildSpec section. No success - still got the error
            • I've added a requirements.txt file with no success still got the error. I created this file using pip freeze also within the BuildSpec. The module shows up, but still get the error.
            • Originally used runtime version 3.7 of python and then tried with 3.9 which still didn't work.

            python runtime 3.9 Any assistance would be appreciated.

            UPDATE: To add more information I download a .tar.gz file from S3 that contains the python scripts I need for running in this build. I extract the .tar.gz then I run the script that is having the error. Here is the output for when I install cfn-tools and do a pip freeze You will see below that cfn-tools loads and is part of the output of pip freeze but yet when I run my script it give me the above error.



            Answered 2021-Dec-20 at 19:11

            The module I was trying to install wasn't the one that was being used.

            The module that needed to be installed was cfn_flip it has the cfn_tools module that the code was trying to use. The CodeBuild didn't have it installed, so how it worked on the first run is still a mystery.

            Upgrade to Drupal 9 from8 having Twig related error
            Asked 2021-Dec-07 at 18:54

            I recently upgrade drupal to 9 versions via composer. And i am getting following error in drush watchdog:show command



            Answered 2021-Dec-07 at 18:54

            Twig_Function_Function is a deprecated class from Twig 1, the use of which was deprecated in Drupal 8 and has now been removed as Drupal 9 requires Twig 2.

            In your bookmark_field module, you need to update the code to use \Twig\TwigFunction instead of the old Twig_Function_Function.



            Monitoring a folder for files
            Asked 2021-Dec-05 at 14:33

            Could you please tell me how can I implement the possibility of detecting two files with the same extension in a folder?

            That is, I need a folder that will be tracked, and as soon as two files with the extension .txt appear in this folder, then it is necessary to identify the file created earlier than everyone else in the same folder (i.e. it will be the oldest) and display its name on the screen, for example, or any other functions.

            I found this method that can track the creation of files in a folder... but unfortunately, the level of my knowledge of Python does not allow me to further develop the idea that I described above.

            Install watchdog

            You can download it from GitHub.
            You can use watchdog like any standard Python library. You will need to make sure that you have a development environment consisting of a Python distribution including header files, a compiler, pip, and git installed. Make sure that your pip, setuptools, and wheel are up to date. When using pip it is generally recommended to install packages in a virtual environment to avoid changes to the system.
