Social Zombies: Rise of the Mobile Dead
- Kevin Johnson & Tom Eston
- Monday, March 11th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm
Just when you thought "bath salts" were turning innocent humans into flesh eating zombies in Florida... mobile devices have begun taking over the world like an infectious zombie virus outbreak. Tablets and mobile phones are being used by everyone today and are more powerful than ever before. The technology implemented in these devices is truly bleeding edge. From new wireless technology like NFC (Near Field Communication) to social networks being integrated directly into mobile operating systems, the times are rapidly changing. These new technology advancements also introduce privacy and physical security concerns not seen before. In addition, with new technology comes new responsibilities and challenges for security professionals and consumers alike, especially in a world of BYOD.
In this presentation Kevin and Tom explore and exploit the new technology being implemented by these mobile platforms. They have discovered interesting security and privacy issues with Android Jelly Bean, Apple iOS 6, OS X Mountain Lion, NFC, and many popular mobile applications. New tools and exploits will be discussed that can be used by penetration testers to exploit these new technologies. Kevin and Tom will also discuss strategies to combat the ensuing mobile device onslaught. This information alone will help you to survive the ÔRise of the Mobile DeadÔ.
