Gone in 60 Minutes: Have You Patched Your System Today?
- David Hoelzer
- Monday, January 19th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm
In our industry we hear about new vulnerabilities every day, but there can be a perception that moving from the discovery of a flaw to a workable exploit is very difficult. The result is that most organizations are perfectly happy operating with a 30-day patch-rollout cycle. Is this really fast enough? How hard is it really to exploit a vulnerability? How hard is it to scale a proof of concept into a working tool that can compromise thousands of hosts? This presentation demonstrates the entire process, walking through the process that a security researcher or hacker follows from research through proof of concept and working exploit... all in less than 60 minutes. While aspects of this presentation can be somewhat technical, the emphasis isn't on the technical but on the process and speed with which a working exploit can be developed. There's something for everyone to take away from this presentation!
