We haven’t done posts in a while. We’ve had quite few in the magazine for some time now, but have done a poor job of doing updates. We’ve been really busy lately but wanted to let folks know what we plan to do for more of 2013. So far this year we taught ARM Exploitation […]

ARM Exploitation Tokyo: Hacking in the Land of the Rising Sun

February 3, 2013

1

In mid 2012 we received an email from several folks in Japan asking us if we intended to bring our “ARM Exploitation” course from Blackhat Las Vegas 2012 to Asia. We had originally planned to do our class elsewhere in Asia but our work schedules conflicted pretty dramatically and we were unable to make it happen. But Japan in the New Year […]

In October (on the heels of our recent ARM Exploitation Research) we were invited to speak at ARMTechCon, one of the largest Microprocessor conferences in the world. It was held at Santa Clara Convention Center in California. We were asked to speak there and sit on an “expert panel” on the security of “Real-World” devices. […]

BreakPoint 2012 (Melbourne, Australia). A long overdue post…

We spoke at Breakpoint 2012 in Melbourne, Australia. Whatta cool con. A researcher’s conference. It was small and highly relevant with great content. It was also a really great choice of venue (The Intercontinental). For the last decade or so I’ve used the term “rux” like people use the term “0wn”. I’ve also used the […]

About a month ago we gave a high-level talk about the threats to mobile devices at Source Seattle 2012. We talked (in the “Business Track”) about our experience developing the Practical ARM Exploitation course and also spoke anecdotally about our experiences reverse engineering and exploiting software on mobile devices and embedded systems. The talk was […]

BlackHat Las Vegas 2012

August 11, 2012

“The sky above Las Vegas was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel…“ Ok it wasn’t. In fact it was bright, beautiful, sunny and hot as sh*t. Neal Stephenson did the keynote at BlackHat this year, so we felt we should sling the obligatory cyberpunk reference into this post….and because I (Ridley) am writing […]

Teaming Up With Trail of Bits

August 8, 2012

Following our Blackhat 2012 training and talk we received a bunch of emails, tweets, and IMs  asking one thing: “When are you going to offer this to the public again? I couldn’t make it to the BlackHat course.” With the exception of CanSecWest and BlackHat we’ve mostly been giving this (and customized versions of similar […]
