Title: IT SECURITY: A SLIDE FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP

Technological advances shape the way we work and live now and for years to come. Breakthroughs are the order of the day and web applications are created practically on the fly. Combine that with mass distribution and all of a sudden security, best-practice frameworks and even regulations get relegated to the catching-up zone. In this talk Mark Fenech will adopt Information Security principles for the development of web applications, so that management, developers and business stakeholders alike will have a framework within which they can ruminate for more secure web applications.

Title: Porting a Proof of Concept C code into universal python exploit (OpenSSH).

Summary:

OpenSSH lets you grant SFTP access to users without allowing full command execution using “ForceCommand internal-sftp”. However, if you misconfigure the server and don’t use ChrootDirectory, the user will be able to access all parts of the filesystem that he has access to – including procfs. On modern Linux kernels (>=2.6.39, I think), /proc/self/maps reveals the memory layout and /proc/self/mem lets you write to arbitrary memory positions.

This talk will provide an overview of the exploitation process for the OpenSSH vulnerability and the challenges and techniques used to create an universal exploit for 32 and 64 bit architectures.

Speaker: Adam Simuntis and Mindaugas Slusnys
