Press Release: Ransomware Attacks Are No Force Majeure

Sanna/ July 7, 2022/ Press/ 0 comments

DeepSec security conference reminds you of basic IT protection and secure system architecture. Malware attacks that encrypt data of victims seem to have increased recently. In fact, these ransomware attacks are only part of an evolution among the attackers. Attack software moves with the times. An important reason for the accumulation is the standstill in defense. This year’s DeepSec security conference offers exchange with experts and high-quality further training for protecting your own IT. Basic Misunderstandings Comparing the reports of incidents involving ransomware attacks, one might conclude that these are inevitable natural events. Of course, that’s not the case. If one sticks to the biological analogy of the virus, a favorable combination of prerequisites for the infestation of ransomware results. In the beginning, there is always a deception in the form of a fake

Hardwear.io Interview: Teardown and feasibility study of IronKey – the most secure USB Flash drive

René Pfeiffer/ October 21, 2021/ Security

Portable storage devices are small and can be easily lost. Using security measures to protect the data on them is therefore a good idea. Vendors offer USB storage devices with built-in encryption capabilities. What happens if you analyse how they work? What are the attack modes on these devices? There will be a presentation at Hardwear.io regarding a specific brand of storage devices. We have asked the author Sergei Skorobogatov about the security properties of IronKey devices. HDD and SSD vendors have provided their devices with secure deletion and encryption features. How do IronKey devices compare to normal storage media? Some HDD and SSD devices do offer encryption and secure deletion, as well as vendors of other USB Flash drives. The fundamental difference is that IronKey devices are certified with FIPS140-2 Level 3. This

Project Covert Operations and Zero Days – Controlled Compromise of Infrastructure and Code

René Pfeiffer/ April 21, 2021/ Discussion, High Entropy, Security

Once you collect information, you will eventually have to decide on when to use which part for what reason. This is the dilemma of intercepting intelligence from an adversary and using it for defence (or offence). Once you act on your the knowledge no one else is supposed to have, then you will also disclose your capabilities. The digital world is full of these scenarios. The most recent case is a disclosure of Google’s Project Zero. The publication covered vulnerabilities dating back to the first half of 2020. As it turned out the discovery comprised 11 powerful weaknesses used to compromise iOS, Android and Microsoft® Windows devices. By publishing these vulnerabilities Project Zero essentially shut down a nine-month digital hacking operation by a Western government. Bugs in software have no labels. They may be

IT infrastructure has grown over the years. Defence has a lot to take care of. If you have any ideas how to help the defenders, please let us know. Topics covering attacks should always contain some advice on

DeepSec Training: Black Belt Pentesting / Bug Hunting Millionaire – Mastering Web Attacks with Full-Stack Exploitation

René Pfeiffer/ August 19, 2019/ Conference, Training

Web applications are gateways for users and attackers alike. Web technology is used to grant access to information, public and sensitive alike. The latest example is the Biostar 2 software, a web-based biometric security smart lock platform application. During a security test the auditors were able to access over 1 million fingerprint records, as well as facial recognition information. How can you defend against leaks like this? Well, you have to understand all layers of the application stack. Modern web applications are complex and it’s all about full-stack nowadays. That’s why you need to dive into full-stack exploitation if you want to master web attacks and maximize your payouts. Say no to classic web application hacking. Join the training session at DeepSec 2019 and take advantage of Dawid Czagan’s unique hands-on exercises and become

DeepSec2018 Talk: Manipulating Human Memory for Fun and Profit – Stefan Schumacher

Sanna/ October 31, 2018/ Conference, Discussion

Manipulating the Human Memory for Fun and Profit, or: Why you’ve never met Bugs Bunny in DisneyLand Hacking is not limited to technical things — like using a coffee machine to cook a soup — but also makes use of social engineering. Social engineering is the (mis)use of human behaviour like fixed action patterns, reciprocity or commitment and consistency. Simple social engineering attacks like phishing mails do not require much preparation, but more complex ones do so. Especially when one wants to set up some kind of advanced persistent threat in the psychological domain. So, besides the psychological fundamentals of social engineering we also did research on human memory, how it works, how it pretty much fails to store what really happened, and how it can be misused for a sinister purpose. The fundamental
