19h - 20h - "A history of ATM violence ‚ From blowing up safes over jackpotting to all-round malware" ‚ Erik Van Buggenhout

ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) are the main component of self-servicing banking functions used by millions of banking customers worldwide. This entertaining talk will focus on the history of ATM attacks and the current development of cross-vendor ATM malware. The talk will include a demonstration on a live ATM what malware (which we developed for research and educational purposes) can achieve.

20h - 21h - " One Packer to Rule Them All: Empirical Identification, Comparison and Circumvention of Current Antivirus Detection Techniques‚ ‚ Arne Swinnen

Many popular anti-virus solutions claim to be effective against unknown and obfuscated malware, but remain vague about how they supposedly achieve this goal. This presentation presents empirically discovered results on the various implementations of these methods per solution, which reveal that some anti-virus solutions have more mature methods to detect x86 malware than others, but all of them are lagging behind when it comes to x64 malware. Several new evasion techniques are presented, through which real-world malicious executables with a high detection rate were rendered completely undetected to the prying eyes of anti-virus products.
