A new Course: “Software Exploitation via Hardware Exploitation”

January 31, 2014 by

9

For the last couple of years we’ve been teaching Practical ARM Exploitation. It’s sold out at every public offering (CanSecWest 2012 and BlackHat 2012 & 2013) and we’ve been fortunate enough to give it privately to a number of really amazing organizations. In 2011 we did a talk entitled “Hardware Hacking For Software People” at […]

Now that the “Android Hackers Handbook” is a wrap and off to the printers, I (Ridley) have been flushing the queue on the last 1.5 years worth of incomplete blogposts. We’ve posted a few here and there, but not nearly as many as we started and didn’t finish. So, for the last few days I […]

So a while back, @drakkhen and I were chatting and he suggested a simple device that would let him “airgap” his mobile devices from his computer but still use them for power.

Late last year we got an email from Paul Such (the founder of SCRT Information Security) inviting us to present and lead a workshop at the Insomni’hack 2013 conference.  A workshop is like a 1-day, mini-training.  The conference is a two-track one day conference with workshops beforehand, and an all-night hacking contest and CTF afterwards. Maybe this […]

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

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 […]

A day trip to Source Seattle 2012

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 […]
