MWR's Georgi Geshev & Rob Miller will be presenting at CanSecWest in Vancouver this year.

Event Description

CanSecWest, the world's most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.

Talk presented by MWR

  • Time: 11:20:00
  • Topic: Logic Bug Hunting in Chrome on Android
  • Speakers: Georgi Geshev & Rob Miller
  • Description: Memory corruption exploits are requiring greater and greater investment in time and effort to bypass the latest mitigations in applications like Chrome and the underlying operating system. When combined with the competition of everyone in the world running a fuzzer, it becomes hard to find and keep unique bugs. 

    Instead we want to talk about logic flaws - bugs or simply "features" - that enable the attacker to achieve the same goals without fighting the latest and greatest exploit mitigations. We will show the methodology we use for reviewing products and identifying flaws as well as the process of exploiting them. This involves, among other things, developing better understanding and gaining deeper knowledge of a target and identifying security boundaries that usually give rise to assumptions about security checks performed on both sides. 

    In our example we will show how a logic bug in Chrome for Android allows an attacker to completely bypass Android Nougat security to access the user's files, emails and even install applications without the need for a single memory corruption bug.
