The Tales of a Bug Bounty Hunter
Bug bounty hunting is the new black! During this technical talk, several interesting vulnerabilities identified in Instagram will be presented. All vulnerabilities were disclosed responsibly via Facebook’s Public Bug Bounty program over the course of 2015 and 2016, and will be discussed in depth. Required advanced Mobile Security attack techniques for this Research, such as Binary Modification, Dynamic Hooking and Burp Suite Plugin Development will be covered, among other trickery. The most interesting vulnerabilities were hybrid: Combinations of complementary vulnerabilities in different environments (e.g. Web and Mobile). All identified issues’ root causes will be mapped onto the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), to analyze where they could have been prevented from materializing. Last but not least, the monetary rewards offered by Facebook for each vulnerability and general Bug Bounty Hunting advice will be shared with the community.

Mainframes? On My Internet?
In early 2013 Soldier of Fortran had an idea. What if there were mainframes on the internet? He knew there had to be, the internet is just full of all kinds of weird stuff. But what if there’s also mainframes on there, what would that mean? Using some google-fu he started the hunt, easily finding a handful, then later moving on to SHODAN and finally masscan. He found hundreds of ‘green’ screens up and running with their beautiful EBCDIC art for all the world to see. This talk will walk through the story of how he found the mainframes. Going through the process to find the mainframes and how he helped augment tools like SHODAN to make hunting easier. He’ll detail the tools he wrote specifically to hunt internet mainframes, the troubles he’s gotten in to for looking for them and then provide MANY examples of the the kind of (scary) things he’s encountered on the web. There may even be some live examples of some of those mainframes. Talks about new changes Soldier of Fortran made to Nmap 7 and how those changes make it easier to find mainframes will be discussed and some live demos *may* be performed.

Reverse Engineering the Wetware: Understanding Human Behavior to Improve Information Security
The human mind evolved to draw quick conclusions for survival. Behavioral economists, like Daniel Kahneman and Dan Ariely, are publishing research on when, why and how decision making can be consistently and predictably irrational. You could say these researchers are reverse engineering the wetware, finding bugs and race conditions and disclosing them.People are key to an organization’s information security, even if you believe in the “people, processes and technology” tripod. People define and execute processes. People decide funding for, implement, operate and/or monitor the technology. Your adversaries are people. At least until we reach the AI singularity, that is.Until then, the aim of this talk is to present some of the counter-intuitive findings of behavioral economics research and their implications for how information security is handled at the organizational and market levels. Our hope is that the audience will find they could benefit from changing established, seemingly sensible and logical actions we all do to better match how the wetware actually works.

Securing the Distributed Workforce
A distributed workforce is becoming the trend as new companies start and take off, as well as existing companies expand. Traditional and proven security principles do not always apply to this type of environment, thus requiring unique and creative solutions. One of the challenges with a distributed workforce is the ability to protect end users as they perform day-to-day work and browse the deep wide internet (personal browsing habits). The ability to monitor end users and production systems becomes increasingly difficult as software and hardware are migrated from physical assets and virtualized into the cloud. We have a unique deployment and workforce requiring different approaches to maintain a secure workforce. This talk covers the gaps that exist and approaches we are taking and researching to maintain a safe and secure work environment.

Who’s Breaking into Your Garden? iOS and OS X Malware You May or May Not Know
Apple platforms were thought far away from malware problem in a long term, until at least 21 and 27 new malware or adware families on iOS and OS X were discovered in the past two years. Some of these have led to the theft of hundreds of thousand of password (the KeyRaider) or hundreds of million of infections worldwide (the XcodeGhost). This topic will discuss the primary spreading and attack techniques used by these real world malware as well as their common characteristics, and identify trends around these topics. The security industry can use this information to build more effective solutions to detect and to defeat similar threats in near future. We will discuss with case studies on: attacking non-jailbroken iOS devices, bypassing App Store code review, infecting compilers and libraries, escalating privileges or executing code remotely via zero day vulnerabilities, attacking specific targets via commercial or customized Spyware, attacking multiple platforms or crossing platforms, making profit from advertisers by stealing revenue, and hunting Apple IDs for various evil purposes.

Hackers Hiring Hackers - How to hack the job search and hack talent
There are few talks that address what some consider to be the hardest part of getting a job in InfoSec: the hiring process. Information security is in desperate need of people with the technical skills hackers have to fill a myriad of roles within organizations across the world. However, both sides of the table are doing horribly when it comes to hiring and interviewing. Organizations are doing poorly trying to communicate expectations for a job, there are people going to interviews without knowing how to showcase their (limited or vast) experience, and some people posture themselves so poorly that the hiring managers don’t think the candidates are really interested in the job. This talk takes the experiences of the speakers as both interviewers & interviewees (as well as from others) in order to help better prepare to enter (or move within) “the industry,” as well as let hiring managers know what they can do to get the people & experience they need for their teams.

A year in the wild: fighting malware at the corporate level
Yelp as any large company has a problem with viruses, malware and organized phishing campaigns targeting our corporate network and our employees. We have assembled a set of tools and processes to stop the pests from infecting our network.From the moment of the threat detection, first response throughout the analysis, and the final resolution, we make sure that we can catch as many incidents as possible and properly sanitize the environment so that the potential problems are cut short. All this in an automated and orchestrated fashion, eliminating the manual repetition as much as possible thanks to the in-house built tools like AIR (Automated Incident Response), OSXCollector (Mac OS X forensics collection) and ElastAlert (alerting out of Elasticsearch). We also compliment the pipeline with some available open source tools, like osquery and other proprietary threat detection technologies. This adds up to a balanced ecosystem that helps us leverage the current assets, learn about the potential problems quickly and respond to them in a timely fashion.

Scan, Pwn, Next! – exploiting service accounts in Windows networks
Service accounts are prevalent in Windows networks, but are often mismanaged and ripe for exploitation. Too often these accounts are over-privileged, dual-used (both by human users and automated processes), and have credentials omnipresent in the network. The services that use these accounts are easily discovered, as they are registered as SPNs on the Active Directory, thus presenting a lucrative target for an attacker.In this talk we will discuss how service accounts can be mismanaged and thus exploited, and present new research examining the exposure of service accounts in real-world networks.We will demonstrate exploitation techniques and introduce an open source tool for detecting potentially vulnerable service accounts in Windows networks. We will also discuss how targeted behavioral analytics can be employed to detect potential abuse of service accounts.Armed with the knowledge and tools from this presentation, you can now go and test your own networks – and, perhaps, prevent that sneaky attacker from exploiting your service accounts.

IoT on Easy Mode (Reversing Embedded Devices)
As technology matures we are seeing a trend of products that are now “smart.” The problem is that once we discover how these devices are programmed we can see the flaws but unfortunately the hardware aspect scares some people away. This talk is to show people how easy it really is to get into embedded device hacking while also expanding their knowledge outside of the x86/x86_64 space. By the end of this talk the audience will be encouraged to go out and start their journey into the embedded device world while having the tools that they need without the need of spending money unless absolutely necessary. This talk will also cover the reasoning behind purchasing products such as a logic analyzer and the bricks walls I personally went through to justify the needs.

Why it’s all snake oil – and that may be ok
Every few years, security vendors entice us with “next generation” security products with 0day detection and we must decide if this product will be our salvation or if it’s more snake oil full of empty promises. Basic theorems of computer science mathematically guarantee that many of the claims made by sales are false without certain allowances, but that doesn’t mean that the products are useless. Understand how to ask the right questions to determine if a security vendors assumptions are valid for your organization. Take a walk through the history of exploitation and computer science theorems to learn how to have an honest conversation about security products and their capabilities.

Developing a Rugged DevOps Approach to Cloud Security
Your operational tools deliver continuous monitoring and alerting—why doesn’t your security suite? No single path exists to a rugged DevOps approach that works for every organization, but certain key principles and techniques are used by the DevOps elite that give them distinct advantages. You can use these and revamp your organization’s processes and behaviors to gain efficiencies in your security operations. Security can no longer be thought of as being a separate step in a launch. Instead, security must be integrated into the overall processes of development and deployment. As organizations move more deeply into continuous patterns of development and deployment, the importance of implementing continuous security behaviors becomes non-negotiable. Attendees will learn strategies to better understand their value to an attacker, how to better define the battlefield for their own advantage, how to identify potential Rugged DevOps allies within the organization, why it is time to embrace continuous security cycles and automate security acceptance tests as part of the QA process, and the value of operationalizing security alerts and remediation efforts to achieve a more agile security posture.

Sedating the Watchdog: Abusing Security Products to Bypass Windows Protections
A few months ago, we came across a critical vulnerability in a popular security product that could act as a vehicle for a threat actor to bypass the protections of the underlying Windows system. This was only the tip of the iceberg.A deeper research revealed this issue to be present in a multitude of common Anti-Virus (AV) products. This was not something to ignore. In fact, we can assume that apart from AV products, other security products such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and other intrusive non-security related products such as app-performance solutions, may potentially rely on this malpractice.Making matters worse, we found a second malpractice in intrusive products which simplifies the process for threat actors to run their exploits.During the following few months we notified popular vendors and collaborated with them on a solution. In a coordinated effort, various vendors have fixed their products and released the necessary patches. In this talk we reveal a detailed description of the vulnerability and its impact. Additionally, we release a tool that the audience can use to validate whether their systems are now secure from this vulnerability.

Digital Intelligence Gathering: Using the Powers of OSINT for Both Blue and Red Teams
In today's age everyone puts everything on the Internet. Not only can this present a personal threat, it can also introduce tangential risk to your organization. Seemingly innocent public displays of company pride, human error, and all-to-descriptive LinkedIn profiles are all interconnected pieces of information that can be leveraged by both attackers and defenders in the ongoing battle between red and blue.In this presentation we'll explain and demo how we've leveraged Twitter, Instagram, Google Maps, Whitepages.com, court case records and property records to automate and assist in OSINT discovery. We have integrated it all together in a single custom application, coupled all this with the power of Maltego. These custom transforms can easily be used to identify potential insider threats within your organization, prepare for a red team engagement, or to simply dox all your friends. We will discuss the benefits of this information from both an attacker and defender’s point of view.

Join us for a look at a variety of common web vulnerabilities, including Cross-Site Scripting, Cross-Site Request Forgery, Weak Authentication, Logic Errors, and more -- and an opportunity to test your web hacking skills against a simulated online bank. We’ll be covering the vulnerabilities from the ground up, but a basic understanding of web applications (i.e., HTTP, HTML, and JavaScript) and browsers would be useful background.

Participants will need to bring a laptop. Prior experience with server-side programming and an understanding of how web apps are built is recommended.

Sweet Security: Deploying a Defensive Raspberry Pi
Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) has become increasingly difficult. Devices are often shipped with out-of-date operating systems and unmaintained code, which is littered with vulnerabilities. To add to the frustration, traditional security tools cannot be installed on many of these devices. This presentation will demonstrate how open-source software, along with various other free tools, can be used to monitor, protect and mitigate against threats to IoT environments. The session will explore how all of these technologies and methods can be deployed on inexpensive hardware, such as the Raspberry Pi.

Sharing is Caring: Understanding and measuring Threat Intelligence Sharing Effectiveness
For the last 18 months, MLSec Project and Niddel collected threat intelligence indicator data from multiple sources in order to make sense of the ecosystem and try to find a measure of efficiency or quality in these feeds. This initiative culminated in the creation of Combine and TIQ-test, two of the open source projects from MLSec Project. On this talk, we have gathered aggregated usage information from intelligence sharing communities in order to determine if the added interest and "push" towards sharing is really being followed by the companies and if its adoption is putting us in the right track to close these gaps. We propose a new set of metrics on the same vein as TIQ-test to help you understand what does a "healthy" threat intelligence sharing community looks like, and how to improve the ones you may be a part of today! We will be conducting this analysis with usage data from some high-profile threat intelligence platforms and sharing communities.

Planning Effective Red Team Exercises
An effective red team exercise is substantially different from a penetration test, and it should be chartered differently as well. The scenario, objective, scope, and rules of engagement all need to be positioned correctly at the beginning in order to most closely simulate a real adversary and provide maximum value to the client.In this presentation, we’ll review best practices in each of these areas, distilled from conducting dozens of successful red team exercises - along with some war stories highlighting why each element matters. Those in offensive security will gain an understanding of how to manage the client’s expectations for this process, and how to guide them towards an engagement that provides a realistic measurement of their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to real attacks. Those in enterprise security will gain a deeper understanding of this style of assessment, and how to work with a red team to drive real improvement in their security programs.

Fraud Detection & Real-time Trust Decisions
Fraud detection and computer security have a number of interesting parallels as adversarial & technological ecosystems where systems have exploits and attack surfaces.With the advent of the on-demand economy, the window of time between purchase and service delivery -- the period during which businesses can typically aim to identify fraudulent activity -- is becoming shorter and shorter.I'll present a summary of the common ways which in which fraudsters attack online commerce - starting with traditional online storefront attacks, and moving on to the challenges faced in realtime marketplaces.I'll explain a number of the techniques and technologies employed in combating online fraud, and draw parallels with traditional network and application security practices.

Access Control in 2016 - deep dive
Access control is undoubtedly a critical security mechanism, which is often managed as part of Identity & Access Management (IAM). Unfortunately current access control implementations are often quite crude (e.g. limited to role-based access and account provisioning). This is in contrast to the increasing complexity of the access policies that should actually be implemented - for example, required to meet regulations.As a poor man’s way out, organizations today resort to implementing basic access control mechanisms to meet compliance requirements (e.g. “least privilege”) – but these mechanisms are often too coarse and static to be effective (e.g. “least privilege” is much more than privileged account management).In fact access control comprises many different, often not so well-understood approaches, which should be used by InfoSec professionals and developers to make access control more effective, and manageable while at the same time being technically implementable. Advanced access control approaches are often criticized for being unmanageable, unimplementable, or too costly. In this quite technical session you will learn: why access control policy implementation in 2016 is more complex than you may think, why traditional access control mechanisms are often insufficient, which new approaches are available, and are suitable for what IT/business environment.

Fuzz Smarter, Not Harder (An afl-fuzz Primer)
Fuzz testing is one of the most powerful tools in the bug hunter’s toolset. However, many fuzzing platforms require a lot of hard work to first describe a targeted format or protocol. These tools also often require a lot of resources, time, or both. American Fuzzy Lop (afl-fuzz) from Michal Zalewski (lcamtuf) overcomes these challenges with novel code instrumentation techniques combined with a highly optimized forking process. This talk steps through an entire process for using afl-fuzz and other tools like address sanitizer (ASAN) and !exploitable to identify and classify exploitable software bugs. Specific example steps for building and fuzzing AFL instrumented Ubuntu packages will allow attendees to quickly start finding 0-days in software deployed on millions of computers world-wide.

Using Behavior to Protect Cloud Servers
Cloud server adoption has exploded in the last 5 years. Nearly every business is using some kind of IaaS, PaaS platform. Securing these cloud servers is challenging. The ease of access by developers, contractors, web admins and more needs to be balanced with security. Using rule based access security can only go so far. Once SSH keys and tokens are compromised, an attacker can wreak havoc.Behavior based real time analytics can help create a dynamic fingerprint of an automated service like Jenkins or of an employee. We will show an example of dynamic privilege management to identify and stop insider threats and privilege escalation attacks in real time. See how you can apply next generation privilege management principles to secure your assets.

Elliptic Curve Cryptography for those who are afraid of mathematics
To fully understand Elliptic Curve Cryptography to a point where you could use it in practice, you would need to spend years inside university lecture rooms to study number theory, geometry and software engineering. And then you can probably still be fooled by a backdoored implementation.I won't be able to change that in a short talk. What I will do, however, is explain the basics of ECC. I'll skip over the gory maths (it will help if you can add up, but that's about the extent of it) and explain how this funny thing referred to as "point addition on curves" can be used to exchange a secret code between two entities over a public connection.I will also explain how the infamous backdoor in Dual_EC_DRGB (a random number generator that uses the same kind of maths) worked and what went on at Juniper.At the end of the presentation, you'll still not be able to find such backdoors yourselves and you probably realise you never will. But you will be able to understand articles about ECC a little better. And, hopefully, you will be convinced it is important that we educate more people (possibly you) to become ECC-experts.

The Art of the Jedi Mind Trick
The hacker/security community continues to struggle with how to get our message across to others. We know what's wrong, what's insecure, and what needs to be done to fix the problems. BUT...we seem to hear more stories about failure rather than success stories. Maybe WE are part of the problem. It's easy to give a talk at a conference where you're "preaching to the choir" and everyone speaks your language, but how do you fare when you are trying to give the message to your boss, or your bosses' boss, or C-Level management? This talk will explore a variety of techniques that I’ve learned over my 20+ years of consulting/advising customers about how to get the right message to the right people so real change happens. I'll explore obstacles, attitudes, and challenges that I've faced in hundreds of companies; practical methods for getting your point across; helping others to understand what you are saying; learning to speak their language; and helping them to draw the desired conclusion. This is part art, part science, and maybe a little luck - but I believe there are skills you can learn that will make you a successful communicator and get your message heard.

Mobile App Corporate Espionage
Corporate espionage is at an all-time high, and in terms of data risk threats, is second only to financially motivated data breaches according to the Verizon data breach investigations report. Whether your team is designing in-house mobile apps or leveraging 3rd parties for mobile apps, the apps may contain risky behaviors. These behaviors can stem from malicious 3rd party SDKs or code injected by the developer that can allow sensitive corporate secrets and documents to be leaked through out-of-band communications. This session will explore real-word examples of corporate espionage techniques that leverage hidden behaviors in seemingly innocuous mobile apps.

Sucker-punching Malware: A Case Study in Using Bad Malware Design Against Attackers
Software developers have provided unlimited job security for the infosecindustry. Likewise, malware authors also have a history of making baddesign choices that allow defenders opportunities to use those mistakesagainst them. Between failed crypto implementations in ransomware to"license verification" of commercial malware tools, even malware softwaredevelopers suck.This talk will focus on several case studies, one being of AlienSpy/JSocket and the design decisions made by the author that can be used to great effect to disable the malware world-wide. The earlier version, AlienSpy, was knocked outworldwide forcing the developer to create an entire new version of the malware and have all his customers reinstall (potentially losing theirvictims). Others will be added for interesting current events.

Why Can't We Have Nice Things? Conflict Resolution in Information Security
Conflict can be a good thing, really. Without it, we get groupthink and dumbass decisions. But how we approach and resolve conflicts can make the difference between healthy conflict and an unproductive, frustrating fight. Why do we have so much of the latter?My graduate research on the conflict resolution style preferences of information security professionals sheds light on the “culture of no”: why infosec conflict so often results in fights, why we keep burning bridges to make a point, and why people can be unwilling to talk to us. More importantly, this research gives us ideas on how we can resolve conflicts without burning all the bridges – in other words, how we can begin to have nice things.(No hackers or statistics were harmed in this research.)

Advanced techniques for real-time detection of polymorphic malware
In this Session, we will introduce the audience to various techniques that are used in the identification and classification of polymorphic malware. By definition, polymorphic malware easily evades traditional signature based detection methods. Approximation Matching algorithms such as ssdeep have had much greater success in detecting polymorphic files. The ssdeep hash is one of the more popular attributes that is computed for a file by a number of sites such as VirusTotal, Malwr and Anubis. Newer algorithms using bloom filters have also shown great promise in detecting polymorphic malware. This session gives an overview of these various algorithms and compares their efficiency and performance.While ssdeep is a good tool for comparing two known files, it becomes computationally expensive when a new file (and its ssdeep hash) is to be compared with a large database of existing ssdeep hashes to determine the closest match. In this session, we enumerate a class of techniques which reduce the lookup time significantly and allow for fast detection of similar files. These techniques are then extended to the classification of polymorphic malware and we show the efficacy of these techniques with real data collected from the field. We then analyze the performance of these algorithms both from a speed as well as their success rate.
