Dark Stage   Web Hackers vs. The Auto Industry: Critical Vulnerabilities in Ferrari, BMW, Rolls Royce, Porsche, and More In early September, we made it our goal to find as many vulnerabilities in as many car companies as possible. Over the next few months, we were able to remotely start/stop, lock/unlock, flash lights, open trunks, and honk the horns of all smart-enabled Toyota, Nissan, Infiniti, Genesis, Honda, Accura, and Lexus vehicles. We gained intimate access to the internal networks of BMW and Mercedes-Benz, being authorized as fully permissioned SSO users with access to dealer portals, Github, Slack, and hundreds of mission critical applications. We found systemic access control vulnerabilities affecting telematic and fleet-management companies, allowing us to dispatch and track police cars, ambulances, and truckers. Join us as we discuss our findings as web hackers attempting to hack the auto industry!

Dark Stage   Think You Cant Get Phished? Think Again. Many security professionals think they cannot be victims of a phishing email. Their hubris is their downfall. Anyone can be phished by a motivated threat actor with the proper resources, time, and patience. In this talk we will relate a phishing example in story form from an actual compromise. The “how” will shock you. The “fix"? Surprisingly simple.

Dark Stage   Know How: From Digital Laggard to Cyber-leader? The need for organisations to transform was driven by the pandemic with the adoption of new applications and automation. The challenge is delivering cyber resilience as the criminal gangs have transformed the way they operate, improving their evasion techniques for detection products and targeting critical infrastructure. Adopting Zero Trust segmentation is a simple way to deliver a structured approach to security. In this session we will look at some of the issues and lay out an effective approach to identifying risk and deploying preventive measures to contain an attack – limiting the spread of ransomware and breaches

Dark Stage   Just Hacker Things with Jayson As someone who was homeless, who started in Tech almost 30 years ago. Who started in Cyber Security over 20 years ago. Who is extremely opinionated and is according to some just a little too blunt. That won’t stop him from answering every question he is asked while on the stage. If you have a burning question you want to ask a Hacker or Red Teamer or Blue Teamer or just a weirdo who has traveled to over 50 countries and loves to share what’s on his mind. Then ask away but be prepared for the answer because you might not like it.

Dark Stage   Live Hack: How does your Email Security Tools Make you Vulnerable to Major Vulnerabilities that Require no Interaction Many big corporations and vendors these days are using email protection services. The logic behind these tools is to inspect any incoming links that are sent to the organization, check their legitimacy through web sandbox tools (such as Urlscan.io), and then if it’s whitelisted, let the email go. However - when the service requests the link, which often can be internal invites or sensitive information with the tokens and the UUID within the query param, it can disclose secrets which are being indexed on Urlscan.io, and allows anyone all over the world to expose

Dark Stage   The Limitations of Legacy, The Possibilities of the Disruptors, and the Aspiration for Evolution As they embark on their digital transformation journey and increase proliferation of their digital assets, a med-size enterprise is faced with the reality of having more than 250 million events a day in their environment. Legacy cyber defense programs are not geared to deal with, sieve through, analyze and triage along with having a timely and effective response to achieve cyber resilience.Without the power of automation and machine learning, the fight against cyber threats is deemed lost. Cyber resilience is about the enterprise ability to effectively monitor, detect, respond to and recover from cyber threats and now should be done at predominantly by machines at machine speed

Dark Stage   Best Practices for Securely Replicating PI System Data Across Segmented Networks Many critical infrastructure organizations have a PI system within their OT network to monitor asset values, archived and historical data, as well as digital state tables. The data living in the PI system needs to be transferred to an external network for remote monitoring and analytics. However, to prevent unwanted threats from entering secure OT networks, many organizations have completely isolated their OT network from external connections, introducing a challenge when it comes to sharing data between two networks at differing security levels. Join us as we discuss best practices for securely transferring PI data one-way out of OT to an IT network, the cloud, or any other network for remote monitoring, without introducing risk.

Dark Stage   Live Demo: TACE: Taint Assisted Concolic Execution. Software defects are ubiquitous. Since these defects may expose the software to a plethora of vulnerabilities, these must be identified in time. Symbolic and concolic executions (symbex) are popular software testing approaches to detect these defects. However, they are inherently slow and incur high-performance overhead. Thus, despite their tremendous potential, their application in solving critical problems in software analyses is limited. Several improvements on symbex, such as SymCc and SymQemu, move the constraint collection to compile time, thus, offering a better execution speed. However, a solution to the constraint bloating problem remains elusive in the existing techniques. We present TACE (Taint Assisted Concolic Execution) that combines the recent advancement in symbex and taint flow analysis to debloat the constraints by selecting the constraints relevant to the target branch in terms of the shared tainted variables. With the order of magnitude improvement, TACE demonstrates a significant edge over existing tools in detecting defects in real-world libraries
