The Machines that Betrayed their Masters


Omair is a Security Researcher whose core research resolves around fuzzing software to find exploitable vulnerabilities, mostly client side softwares. He has been crashing applications for a couple of years and has uncovered critical vulnerabilities. He spends most of his time reading RFC's and understanding the functionality of a software through reverse engineering. And when he doesn't think about fuzzing, the fuzzing still continues.

Strike to the infrastructure: a story about analyzing thousands mobile apps

Alexey Tyurin

I am a pentester, and I do this great job for ERPScan. I have hacked a lot of various systems, especially remote banking systems. Probably touched all major Russian developments.

In many of the systems that I analyzed, I have found 0-day vulnerabilities. This happened, for instance, to SAP, VMware, and Citrix. But in Cisco, I have only re-opened some old bugs (alas). On top of that, I have participated in closing a major XML vector in SAP.

In all, I love hacking large systems and Windows style networks. I like various logical vulnerabilities and bugs that are features.

I like coding, and that is why I am also one of the leading developers of ERPScan Pentesting tool.

Speaking of major achievements, I am personally acquainted with Alexey Sintsov himself!

I try to make the world a better place, and that is why I am happy to share my knowledge and experience in the ][akep magazine. I have been the editor of the EasyHack column for almost three years now. I am also one of the organizers of Defcon Russia.

My interests include interesting things.

Hardware infection is not a myth anymore. For instance, Rakshasa, which was shown at Defcon, is capable of infecting BIOS and PCI ROM (LAN, CDROM). The author of this paper decided to continue research towards infecting the software of the devices and checked the practical possibility to infect a modern 3G modem.

The 3G modems of the Big Three mobile network operators were used: MTS, BeeLine, Megafon. Software for cross-platform infection (Windows, Linux, MacOS X) of virtual CD-ROM images has been developed.
