Securi-Tay is an information security conference held by the Ethical Hacking Society at Abertay University. After the sell-out success of Securi-Tay V this year’s event will run on Friday 24th of February 2017. The conference will be held in Abertay University, benefiting from the fantastic transport links to Dundee. As well as transport, Dundee benefits from affordable accommodation in the city center, as well as a thriving technology community and the reputation for being Scotland’s sunniest city.
The conference is aimed at anyone with an interest in hacking and information security. You don’t need to be a l33t h4x0r to attend and enjoy the event: Securi-Tay promises to provide a fantastic, worthwhile experience for everyone, new to the scene and conference veterans alike. The conference will feature talks from industry professionals and students as well as some workshops. Lunch and an evening buffet will be provided in the bar across the street.
With the rise of sandboxes and locked down user accounts attackers are increasingly resorting to attacking kernel mode code to gain full access to compromised systems.
This talk aims to provide an overview of the Windows kernel mode attack surface and how to interact with it. This talk will demonstrate the tools available for finding bugs in Windows kernel mode code and drivers together with highlighting some of the lower hanging fruit, common mistakes and the steps being taken (or lack of steps being taken) to mitigate the risks posed.The talk will then cover common exploitation techniques to gather information about the state of kernel mode memory and to gain code execution as SYSTEM using examples from publicly known exploits.
