Talks presented by MWR

  • Time: 18:30:00
  • Room: SMU Labs, Level-4
  • Topic: Building Tools To Overcome Unusual Situations
  • Speaker: Sai Sathyanarayan
  • Description: Conducting security/penetration testing in recent times is not straightforward. Furthermore, security professionals, a.k.a. penetration testers, cannot entirely rely on the standard industry tools to conduct assessments successfully.

    In this talk, we will discuss, firstly, the various challenges faced when using conventional tools to perform day-to-day penetration testing operations followed by ways to overcome the said challenges by building custom tools over the existing software. This talk will also give you an idea on how you can write your own custom tools for security testing.

    This talk is focused on pure professional penetration testing experience, the challenges that I faced in my 6 years as a Security Consultant and the tools I developed to overcome these challenges.


  • Time: 19:00:00
  • Room: SMU Labs, Level-4
  • Topic: I know what you received at your mobile
  • Speaker: Kaung Htet Aung
  • Description: This talk will evolve around why we should care and be suspicious about the products we have been a customer of. What if those products might have been compromised and controlled by attackers hijacking everything you do? Do we actually trust and believe what those appliances and products might be telling us?  I will walk you through how my friend and I discovered some high severity bugs from a SMS gateway appliance, which is widely used in banking and financial sectors in Asia. I will share the steps we took which ultimately gave us 3 CVE IDs.
