No class, Low Tech, High damage - Tom Ruff Derbycon 2019 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

No class, Low Tech, High damage
Tom Ruff
Derbycon 2019

The modern press loves to sensationalize ?advanced threats? and the latest zero day. On an almost weekly basis, there?s a new WannaCry, Shellshock, BlueKeep, EternalBlue, NotPetya, Bad Rabbit and on and on. On the flipside, many textbooks define Social Engineering as a ?low-tech? method to compromise an individual, system or a corporation. These attacks are basically ignored by the press unless a celebrity or politician are involved. However, these low-tech methods can bring disastrous results for individuals at the worst times of their lives. This talk details a real life group of lowlifes who prey on people looking for work.

Reformed Java developer who has an appreciation for security, privacy and an honest day?s work. Mowed grass and saved $249 to buy a Commodore Vic 20 and was hooked on computers. Started my career long ago testing computer hardware as it came off the assembly line, and now work for a security company that pranked itself this summer.
