From Zero to Phishing in 60 seconds

In the recent years phishing activity has grown rapidly, with thousands of phishing sites popping for a virtual moment that last weeks, days or even hours, before becoming ineffective, either getting blacklisted by security providers, or brought down by Internet providers and authorities, or (in most cases) both. In order to keep up with this dynamics, a significant portion of the phishing activity relies on phishing kits – software packages that allow quick and easy deployment of a new phishing site. In this talk we will give a glimpse to the world of phishing kits. We will present several phishing kits, and show how they facilitate easy creation of the phishing site, collection framework for the victims’ credentials, and simple configuration for the entire system. We will focus on families of kits which according to our comparison analysis are at least related to each other, or even derived from the same source.

VoIP, Printers and other PWNABLES!

Anything connected to the network should be secured. Over the years we've have countless breaches as the result of unsecure IP telephones, printers and even IP cameras. I will present the main attack vectors these present for hackers using live demos and real penetration testing cases I've encountered. This talk also covers how these can and should be secured.

What Every Hacker Used to Know, a walk down history lane

The audience will learn about the origin of some terms and usage of today's world, and where these concepts have risen from. building on that I will introduce some older programming concepts, older languages and describe the thinking behind them - and how they are relevant for today. in conclusion, I will try to educate about the value of better understanding what was created and not just use the newest shining thing (without critically evaluating it). The talk will review some common terms and their origin (e.g. "Core"), some older concepts that were abandoned and programming languages based on concepts that re-emerging today. some of the research behind this talk is based on interviews, open sourced information and other related talks.

Mobile Containers—The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This presentation relies on our RSA Conference US 17’ presentation, which got very good feedback from attendees. I’ll start by discussing different strategies of mobile containers - ranging from App-Based containers (e.g., SDK-based or through wrapping technologies) to OS-level containers. I’ll relate to inherent characteristics of these strategies – their merits but also shortcomings. I’ll then move on to focus on real-world mobile-security attacking techniques that target the premise of mobile containers’ value-prop: Enhanced Security and Separation of duties. This section will contain concrete threat & mitigation strategies taken from things we see “in the field”. Next, I’ll move to discussing the Android for Work framework – Google’s effort to provide a secure way to perform sensitive business activity, side-by-side with personal activity via Android devices starting Android 5. I’ll discuss the way the framework was built and focus on its premise of providing a secure separation between the personal (and non-guarded) profile and the business (and highly guarded) profile. At that point, I’ll uncover Skycure’s research of techniques (following a responsible and coordinated disclosure process with Google) that can break the secure separation by planting a seemingly innocent in the personal profile with “one leg” controlled by a remote attacker, and the “second leg” inside the presumably secure and separated business profile of Android for Work (we call it an “App-in-the-Middle” attack). I’ll do so by getting deeper into the mechanics of Android, and highlighting the capabilities (such as Accessibility and Notification APIs) that can be used maliciously by apps to mount attacks. The discussion will be accompanied with attack-simulation demonstrations. As a next step, I’ll show advanced attack concepts, such as utilizing Tapjacking in current Android versions, that can allow real-world mounting of App-in-the-Middle attacks. The presentation will conclude with concrete guidance to the audience about the actions they can take to mitigate their exposure.

AtomBombing: Injecting Code Using Windows’ Atoms

We breakdown AtomBombing into three main stages: 1. Write-What-Where – Writing arbitrary data to arbitrary locations in the target process’s address space. 2. Execution – Hijacking a thread of the target process to execute the code written in stage 1. 3. Restoration – Cleaning up and restoring the execution of the thread hijacked in stage 2. While we delve into each stage, we’ll also discuss hurdles that we had to overcome to accomplish the final code injection technique. For example: In stage (1), we call a function that expects three parameters. However, APC only supports function calls to just one parameter. We show how it was possible to bypass this by leveraging the underlying implementation of APC (and not through the documented API). In stage (2), we present how to overcome DEP. This was needed because we couldn’t assume to have RWX memory in the target processes. In stage (3), we show the internals of the APC mechanism from the perspective of the target process. We further demonstrate how to use coincidental functionality of APC’s dispatch function to allow the attacker to clear their footprints from the hijacked thread. While the above steps work only on non CFG-protected processes, we’ll end the talk by demonstrating how to inject code into CFG-protected processes as well. We do this by allowing both indirect calls to CFG invalid functions as well as bypassing CFG’s stack pivot protection. Ultimately we present the complete code injection flow.

Peekaboo! I Own You. The Tale of Hundreds of Thousands Vulnerable Devices with no Patch, Ever.

Imagine that you've purchased your small a cheap ip security camera to feel just a little better with your own physical security. Now imagine that the people who designed that camera know nothing about secure programming, security or programming at all. Imagine that your precious camera can be hijacked into a botnet with only two HTTP packets. This presentation details two very severe zero-day vulnerabilities in a commonly available, white-label IP camera sold by many vendors (we ordered 40 models of cameras from 40 different merchants). Exploiting these vulnerabilities would have allowed us to get a root shell on hundreds of thousands of devices with just two HTTP packets (per device of course). While IoT hacking isn’t new, this presentation will give you a good example of what security on embedded devices looks like in today’s Mirai botnet world and how painfully easy it is to find severely alarming vulnerabilities on such devices. The technical details haven’t been released since we wanted to wait for the vendor's response. But that response never came. Now that we have finished the responsible disclosure process, we feel comfortable talking about the technical details. I’ll walk through all the steps in our research, from hardware hacking to firmware dumping to just plain ol’ reversing. I’ll demo the exploits and explain, step by step, where the developers went wrong, what could have been done to avoid this situation and why this problem is so severe. There will be root shells, there will be exploits, there will be tears.

Hillbilly BBQ: Your rail networks put to use to facilitate OUR party…

We’ve focused on numerous forms of transportation over the years with varying degrees of success. We now turn our attention to the rail industry as a whole. The reviews here and disclosures cover everything from freight to passenger through to the intermodal systems. We take a look at the infrastructure and architecture of the rail networks, the bridges, tunnels and all other aspects from the locomotives themselves through to the communication systems and platforms. The idea is to both understand and then explore (and exploit) the various attack surfaces in a tongue-in-cheek manner to create our own trains, move them about the systems at-will and eventually create a set of worst case scenario’s that would result in a set of sticky, explosive and somewhat deadly messes that the industry needs to sit up, consider and address before it’s too late. We will cover exploits without giving away code, attack vectors with detailed information both directly and within the 3rd party/vendor architectures of the entire rail system. Hopefully this will be both informational and entertaining AND provides further research ideas for others in the community to take up and explore.

Don’t let the cuteness fool you – Exploiting IoT’s MQTT protocol

"Connect all the things!" is, for some time now, the main theme when talking about IoT devices, solutions and products. Our eagerness to find new, at times - innovative, ways to make anything to rhyme along the anthem of the internet is a great promise for malicious activity. As those devices supposed to be lightweight they mostly rely on a small fingerprint stack of protocols - one of those protocols is the message protocol - MQTT. We will go deep into protocol details, observe how common is to find such devices (and how), and several novel ways to abuse any one of tens of thousands easily spotted publicly facing MQTT brokers on the internet for "fun and profit".
