Manage the Look of Launchpad

You can control the number of columns and rows in LaunchPad. To do so, edit the com.apple.doc defaults domain with the key springboard-rows for the number of rows to display and springboard-columns to control the number of columns displayed. So to set the number of rows LaunchPad will show per screen, send the write verb into defaults for com.apple.dock along with the springboard-rows and an -int of 4:

defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-rows -int 4

Likewise, to set columns to 8:

defaults write com.apple.dock springboard-columns -int 8

Then just killall for Dock:

killall Dock

In some cases you will also need to send a resetlaunchpad boolean into com.apple.dock (for TRUE) along with a killall for Dock (or reboot):

defaults write com.apple.dock resetlaunchpad -bool TRUE; killall Dock

Get Your CustomerID From G Suite

There are a few ways to grab your CustomerID from G Suite. This is important when configuring SSO or when interfacing with G Suite programmatically (through their lovely API).

The first and easiest way is to look at the web interface. This isn’t the most intuitive. To find the key, open Google Admin and then browse to Security in the menu in the upper left-hand corner, clicking on Dashboard.

Click on Single Sign On and then scroll down until you see EntityID. The EntityID is going to be everything after the = such as C034minsz9330 as follows

You can also find it by visiting the GooglePlay at https://play.google.com/work/adminsettings?pli=1 where it’s listed as Organization ID.

I don’t think this key can be changed. Once you have the key, you can communicate with the Google API Gateway. For example:

curl 'https://www.googleapis....

Setup Google Cloud Functions

Google Cloud Functions provide a streamlined method for running a simple micro-service leveraging custom functions as well as SDKs for any Google service that can be imported into your script. Currently, node.js is the only non-beta language you can build scripts in.

Permissions

Before you setup Google Cloud Functions in your G Suite domain, first provide the account of a developer with the appropriate permissions, identified in the attached screen. 

Enable The SDKs You Need

G Suite has a number of features exposed to their API by importing SDKs into projects. As an example, the Admin SDK provides us with endpoints and classes that make developing micro services to perform actions in the G Suite admin portal easier. In this section we’ll import that SDK, although the tasks for importing other SDKs is similar. 

To get started, open the Google Cloud Platform using the button in the upper left hand corner and click on APIs and Services (the names of...

Obtain A List Of Devices or Apps In ZuluDesk Using...

The curl command can be used to authenticate to an API using a variety of authentication types such as Bearer, OAuth, Token, and of course Basic. To authenticate to the ZuluDesk API, first create an API token. This is done by logging into ZuluDesk, clicking Organization, then Settings, then API, an then clicking on the Add API Key button.

Once you have your API key, your header will look as follows:

GET /users HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: curl/7.24.0
X-Server-Protocol-Version: 2
Authorization: Basic YOURTOKENHERExxx000111222==
Content-Length: 0

The curl command can do this would be as follows, simply converting these into separate values in the -H or header. The URL provided will do a GET against devices, displaying a list of devices in json:

curl -S -i -k -H "Content-Length: 0" "User-Agent: curl/7.24.0" X-Server-Protocol-Version: 2" "Authorization: Basic YOURAPITOKENxx000111222=="...

Convert a SQL Dump to Excel

The attached script can be used to migrate data out of a sqldump and into csv and xls for further analysis or ETL’ing. The name of each table is used to create a separate csv file (e.g. table1.csv) and an xls representation of each table is put into a workbook in a spreadsheet.

The script requires Python 3.7. So if you’re on a Mac you might need to install that. Here, we use Homebrew to do so:

brew install python3

Then you’d need to install the specific mods:

python3 -m pip install pandas

python3 -m pip install openpyxl

The command is then run as follows:

python3 sqlcsvxlsexport.py

The script is accessible here:

Python Script To Move A SQL Database To .csv Files

You have a database, such as a mysql dump of a Jamf Pro server, or a sql dump of a WordPress site. You want to bring it into another tool or clean the data using a csv as an intermediary. Or you’re using an Amazon Glue job to ETL the data. The following script will take that sql dump and convert it into a bunch of csv files.

To use the script, simply run it with $1 as the path to the sql file and $2 as the path to the export directory, as follows:

python sqlcsvexport.py /sql_file_path /target_dir

To download the script:

AA19-024A: DNS Infrastructure Hijacking Campaign

Original release date: January 24, 2019
Summary

The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), part of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), is aware of a global Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure hijacking campaign. Using compromised credentials, an attacker can modify the location to which an organization’s domain name resources resolve. This enables the attacker to redirect user traffic to attacker-controlled infrastructure and obtain valid encryption certificates for an organization’s domain names, enabling man-in-the-middle attacks.

See the following links for downloadable copies of open-source indicators of compromise (IOCs) from the sources listed in the References section below:

Send Smart Group Changes Information From Jamf To...

Jamf allows you to register a webhook, IFTTT can trigger an action based on a webhook and then has a number of awesome services you can link the ingredients, or variables, that are caught by that webhook listener into other services. One of the easiest ways to see this kind of action is to just journal the response of a registered webhook into a Google Doc. This allows you to see what’s happening on the fly.

Next, you’ll need an IFTTT Platform account. This allows you to create new IFTTT services. Then, create a new service, using the Add Service icon in the top nav bar.

When the service is created, find the API tab and add the service API location URL.

Here, create new trigger, editing [host]/ifttt/v1/test_trigger as endpoint and add “ingredients” these are custom fields. Those properties are parsed in the php file (e.g. name, computer, jssid, etc.).

Now you can go back to IFTTT main site and create a new applet. To do so, search for your service name...

Create Jira Issues From The Command Line

You can use the command line to create Jira tickets. In the below one-liner, we’re going to bring in some standard json and create a ticket. We’ll use curl and use -u to define a username and password, then -X to define a POST and –data to define the contents of the post, wrapped in the single quotes below. Then -H defines the content type as json and a URL to your Jira rest endpoint, “Issues” in the below code:

curl -D- -u krypted:MySuperSecretPassword -X POST --data '{"fields":{"project":{"key": “DOG”},”summary": “Make my feature better.”,”description": “Going to make everything better ever ever ever by doing things and by things I mean allll the things“,”customfield_001”:”Testing testing”,”issuetype": {"name": “Story”}{“time tracking”:{originalEstimate”: “2d 4h”}}}’ -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://krypted.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/...

Pull iTunes App Categories via Bash

I love bash one-liners. Here’s one it took me a bit to get just right that will pull the Category of an app based on the URL of the app.

curl -s 'https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/self-service-mobile/id718509958?mt=8' | grep -Eo '"applicationCategory":.*?[^\\]",'

If you don’t already have the URL for an app, it can be obtained via a lookup using

curl https://itunes.apple.com/lookup?id=718509958

If you’ll be performing these kinds of operations en masse from within server-side scripting, Apple has a number of programs, including the Affiliate Program, which allow you to do so more gracefully. But as a quick and dirty part of a script, this could solve a need. More importantly, hey, parse some json from bash without piping to python or perl or whatevers… Enjoy!
