Last year, for the first time, Qualcomm opened up their security summit to the broader mobile security community. They invited security teams from thier OEM customers and mobile operators to join together along with well-known security researchers in the field to present and discuss important security issues in the mobile ecosystem, such as mobile OS security, hardware and software security, attack intelligence, incident response, and device patching. This unique event gathered security professionals from more than 50 organizations, representing major network operators, device manufacturers, mobile platform providers, academia, and the applied security research community. The Qualcomm Mobile Security Summit is back again and MWR will be presenting this year.
Speaker: Kyle Riley and Bernard Wagner
“Think like an attacker. For many people, that’s as hard as thinking like a professional chef.” – Adam Shostack. The ever-growing requirements of technological innovations in mobile devices have rocketed the growth of the mobile threat landscape for attackers and security researchers. As a result, developers and engineers are pressured into fast-paced release cycles that do not accommodate for in-depth security testing.
The MWR Labs winners of mobile Pwn2Own 2014 will aim to engage the audience with a fresh perspective on how attackers are targeting Android devices. Various remote attack vectors will be discussed, ranging from leveraging application vulnerabilities through to advanced attack chains. To illustrate the mindset and methodology employed by attackers, a case study that contained three 0-day vulnerabilities used to achieve full remote code execution on the Amazon Fire Phone from a malicious access point will be displayed.
