Backdooring With Metadata - Itzik Kotler Converge 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Backdooring With Metadata
Itzik Kotler

Not all binaries were created equal, some are small, some are big, and some can be abused to gain arbitrary code execution. In this talk, I,ll demo how tens of popular, already-installed binaries in popular OS,s such as Linux, FreeBSD, Oracle Solaris, macOS etc. can be turned into backdoors with just one command-line. The icing on the cake? That one command-line won,t change the content or size of binaries, it will only change the metadata. Come see how you can save disk space and bandwidth in your next red team / penetration testing engagement.

Itzik Kotler is CTO and Co-Founder of SafeBreach. Itzik has more than a decade of experience researching and working in the computer security space.
