SecuInside 2012 (Seoul Korea)

Uhm….so apparently CTFs have REALLY blown up! As a founding member of Kenshoto, I remember how we pushed the envelope for CTFs (building automatic scoring systems, *actual* challenges, etc.) I was also the VJ for our first two years running, lugging my 500 DVDs with me to play my favorite little esoteric cyberpunk clips from […]

A Lackluster ‘Hack Cluster’: ARM Exploitation Lab Preview

March 1, 2012 by

As we have announced in other blogposts we’ve been researching mobile platforms quite a bit (specifically those that use the ARM microprocessor). We compiled all of our notes on ARM reverse engineering and ARM exploitation and built a course called “Practical ARM Exploitation” that we will be publicly debuting this coming week at CanSecWest.  The […]

Recon 2011 (a late retrospective)

In July 2011, Beans gave a talk at ReCon in Montreal, CA entitled “Hardware Hacking for Software People“. This year ReCon broke away from its more humble conference venue roots, took corporate sponsorship, and upgraded the venue to a MUCH nicer hotel. (After last year’s debacles, I think Hugo and Dave decided it was just […]

For most of my career as a software developer/security researcher I’ve romanticized ‘hardware hacking’. In my late teens and early twenties as I was learning about software development and software security I would occasionally buy Nuts and Volts from Microcenter and read Karl Lunt‘s Amateur Robotics column. Having devoured William Gibson‘s oeuvre in my late […]

Over the last few years having seen some of the presentations by Pablo Sole on DEPLIB, blogposts by Sean Heelan, and having messed around a little bit with the REIL in BinNavi we were really curious to get a […]

In 2011, I (Stephen A. Ridley) don’t plan on attending too many conferences that require far away travel for many reasons. 1) My work isn’t as interesting anymore ;-( and 2) I can’t travel as easily with Sammiches. With Boston being in the northeast (close to us) we decided we’d try SourceBoston out for the […]

WhoHasTlb? : Extracting TypeLib data from COM Objects

September 16, 2010 by

So let’s say that you’re sitting down to a project (perhaps a malware analysis gig, fuzzing something, or just reversing) and you realize that most of the target is implemented in COM/ActiveX Objects. What would really help you starting off on this project is a human readable version (IDL) of the TypeLib associated with the […]
