An Interactive Look at Software Exploitation & Today's Threat Landscape

  • Stephen Sims
  • Monday, July 22nd, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Let's take a journey through the most common attack trends and techniques used by adversaries today, as well as security researchers looking to profit from exploit sales and bug bounties. Security researchers, adversaries, and various players between the two closely monitor the landscape for changes, actively respond to these changes, and remain one step ahead of our efforts to maintain an acceptable level of security. It is critical for our defenders to keep up with these forever-changing techniques. Surprisingly, the success of cyber-criminals often depends on basic mistakes still made by users, combined with poor patch management and the failure to use proper exploit mitigations. Join Stephen as he performs several demonstrations of exploiting both publicly disclosed and privately disclosed vulnerabilities involving various well known applications, as well as a look at ways to mitigate the chances of success. This presentation will weave in and out of high-level definitions and concepts, all the way to advanced demonstrations and reverse engineering.
