Back to the future: Going back in time to abuse Android’s JIT, Benjamin
Watson, INFILTRATE 2018

There's a lot of different uses of "exploit-like" thinking, which is a
kind of rapid-fire scrappy engineering, like building a campsite before
darkness in the zombie-infested wilderness with only the tools you
brought with you, which consist of a pocket knife, some para-cord, and a
pile of soggy...

To truly appreciate the full spectrum of cyber, one simply needs to visit
Helsinki. Sooner or later you need a break from the sunshine and warmth, and it
is exactly that contrast we can provide. Located halfway between Miami and
Singapore (the long way round), just 3200 km...

Alternatives to viruscheckmate

Posted by Konrads Smelkovs on May 17

Purely practical question - It would seem that virusheckmate is well dead.

Apart from maintaining 50 VMs to replicate it, are there decent
alternatives to do payload scan w/o releasing it to the clouds and vendor

What is important?

Attacking a co-hosted VM, Paul Fariello, Mehdi Talbi, INFILTRATE 2018

I find that I often have a distorted view of what the "most important"
INFILTRATE talk is every year. But since Immunity is merging with a data
center company, it does make sense to give extra points to a talk that
combines the "new hotness" of CPU-level attacks to show step by step how
to go from one guest VM to another guest...

Ghost in the locks, Tomi Tuominen, Timo Hirvonen, INFILTRATE 2018

This was one of our mystery talks this year, and I have to say, you'll
never trust your hotel room door again. :)


Strategic Keynote: Matt Tait

Posted by David Aitel on May 02

Matt Tait's INFILTRATE 2018 keynote: here <https://vimeo.com/267445424>,
is really about the intersection of two different strategic risk
bubbles. It is about a misunderstood or mis-articulated security
dilemma. On one hand, vulnerabilities which get auto-silently-patched do
not get used by attackers as N-day. On the other hand,
auto-silent-update systems are themselves a strategic risk of massive
impact, and one we've seen used...

Code vs bandwidth

2 May, 2018 - 09:28

Posted by Konrads Smelkovs on May 02

Some time ago Dave defended his very fat Trojan on the account that no one
cares if it’s 4 or 40 megs and then there was that discussion about
bandwidth and i’d like to tie it together:

“The more code and computing capacity you have closer to the object of
interest the less bandwidth you need and vice versa”.

I’ll illustrate this with a few basic examples:

Let’s say you want to portscan a subnet from a compromised PC. You can...

We got generally good feedback
<https://twitter.com/surkatty/status/990619671417286657> for INFILTRATE
but in my view conferences are less "Are they enjoyable?" and more "What
did people legitimately get out of it?"

One thing I really like about INFILTRATE is we are small enough that the
crowd is quite restricted to "People who find a heap overflow talk worth
watching, even if it's just to see what the speaker...
