Kevin Johnson & Tom Eston – Desktop Betrayal: Exploiting Clients through the Features They Demand Derbycon 2011 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Kevin Johnson & Tom Eston – Desktop Betrayal: Exploiting Clients through the Features They Demand
Derbycon 2011

In this talk, Kevin Johnson of Secure Ideas and Tom Eston of SecureState will explore the use of client features to gain privileged access to the client systems. During previous talks around social networks, Tom and Kevin discovered that most of the damage we could perform against a target didn’t use an exploit against any vulnerable system. They were able to create various attacks that made use of the features of the client machines. While this talk will not disclose any vulnerabilities within popular client software, they will be releasing multiple attacks that use these clients against their users. Kevin and Tom will be discussing attacks using JavaScript, HTML5, PDF files and Firefox extensions. They will be releasing code to perform these attacks as well as add-ons to tools such as BeEF and Metasploit that will enable these tools to make use of the attacks.
