We are extremely sorry about the short notice but we had to rearrange the schedule. Effectively this means that Adam Laurie will have both of his talks (A Day in the Life of a Hacker, RFIDIOts!!) on Thursday and Nishad’s (Now you see it, Now you dont – Obfuscation for fun and profit!) will be kept on Friday.
We apologize for the possible inconvenience.
Heise has an interesting article that discusses the vulnerability in the TCP protocol.
Well, almost 🙂
Slashdot has an article about the forthcoming talk from Jack C. Louis and Robert E. Lee. The talk will divulge new technical details about TCP state table manipulation vulnerabilities that affect availability.
As you might have noticed the schedule for T2´08 was already published a while ago. However, we’ve received such an unusual submission that we have decided to include it to the schedule. Effectively this means that we have replaced the second part of “Iceberg Incorporated – A Peek Under the Surface of the Criminal Enterprise” with this new talk. And now about this new talk …
Jack C. Louis and Robert E. Lee from Outpost24 will divulge new technical details about TCP state table manipulation vulnerabilities that affect availability.
Specifically this talk will showcase new attacks that will render a remote system unavailable using a very low bandwidth attack stream. Attacks against Windows, BSD, Linux, and embedded systems TCP/IP stack implementations will be discussed and demonstrated.
Please see the schedule for details.
This is just a quick note to let you know that we have updated the schedule to include more information about the talks and speakers.
