As a company we invest heavily in knowledge sharing and believe that events such as BSIDES London are invaluable to the community, providing a platform for discussion on the latest thinking and research in the InfoSec arena.
MWR is pleased to be the Platinum Sponsors of BSIDES 2015, we will be presenting and hosting the MWR after party this year!
Topic: Why Bother Assessing Popular Software?
Speaker: James Loureiro & David Middlehurst
Many popular software packages have gone through many iterations of white and black box testing raising the bar for attackers. Over time the security controls become more effective, however these software packages have large evolving attack surfaces.
MWR’s Mike Auty and Matt Hillman has created a challenge this year, have a go at solving the challenge to win a prize!
A piece of malware was recently discovered on a challenge writer’s laptop! Realising that the damage was already done, they swiftly disconnected the laptop from the internet and proceeded to take a memory image of the machine, and turn it into a challenge! Your goal is to analyse the memory image to identify the malware, and then isolate it so that you can analyse it in IDA Freeware and using all the information available to you, discover the URL the malware uses to inform its dark overlords of its existence. Good Luck!
There will also be challenges on the day developed by MWR’s Andy Mabbitt.
Due to popular demand, the MWR beer fridge is back this year! All you need to do is bring your laptop, connect it to our server and solve the challenge. The challenge will involve solving a series of web applications to gain control to a SCADA based scenario and ultimately obtaining the code to unlock the fridge and release the beer.
