The presentation

Owasp logo normal.jpg
What do you do when you get inside of a .Net program? This presentation will demonstrate taking full advantage of the .Net world from the inside. Once inside of a program don't just put in a key-logger, remold it! I will present how to infiltrate, evaluate, subvert, combine, and edit .Net applications at Runtime. The techniques demonstrated will focus on the modification of core logic in protected .Net programs.

This will make almost every aspect of a target program susceptible to evaluation and change; and allow such hacks as the ability to intermix your favorite applications into a new Frankenstein App, compromise program level security, reverse engineer from memory, modify events, edit the GUI, hunt malware, get the code behind a button, and/or subvert program locks. Demo implementation and tools will be released.

The coding techniques presented will be applicable well beyond compromising the security of a running program. These techniques will grant programmers a new level of access and control over any .Net code, as well as granting the ability to use and integrate with most any .Net application. Creating a development path to test and build 3rd party patches within .Net.

What I hope attendees will gain from the presentation?

  1. An understanding of how this attack is done.
  2. Insight into hardening software systems.
  3. New ideas on how .NET can be used as an attack or defense platform.
  4. A .Net programmer attending should gain the necessary skills to control most any .Net application.

What makes this technology covered valuable:

  1. This attack utilizes (almost exclusively) .NET technology to MonkeyPatch, a relatively new and unexplored area of attacking.
  2. This technique grants a potentially faster & different development path for attacks.
  3. This attack grants easy and robust control over .NET programs.
