Reversing and Exploiting Embedded Devices: The Software Stack (Part 1) Over the course of the past few months I've been traveling around educating people on exploiting embedded devices. My slides alone aren't able to provide enough information, so I wanted to write everything out for people to digest online. The following blog post is "Part 1", which will introduce the reader to the software side of embedded devices. I decided to cover software first since most flaws reside within the software stack, ranging from binary applications to drivers. Part 2 will cover the Hardware stack with a focus on educating the reader on how JTAG actually works and how to leverage Hardware modifications to either bypass password protections or to extract secrets that may be baked into the targeted device.

How the Pentagon punished NSA whistleblowers By now, almost everyone knows what Edward Snowden did. He leaked top-secret documents revealing that the National Security Agency was spying on hundreds of millions of people across the world, collecting the phone calls and emails of virtually everyone on Earth who used a mobile phone or the internet. When this newspaper began publishing the NSA documents in June 2013, it ignited a fierce political debate that continues to this day – about government surveillance, but also about the morality, legality and civic value of whistleblowing.

PowerOPS: PowerShell for Offensive Operations At Portcullis, one of the most frequent assessments we perform are breakouts. One of the main challenges we face during these assessments is to get command execution that can either help escalate our privileges or allow us to gain access to different systems on the network. Sometimes we find harsh group policy restrictions in place that block access to the Windows Command Prompt, PowerShell, among others. These, however, are not always properly implemented, i.e. they do not block access to all executables (and allow only certain programs to run). What happened when a parent fought for his kid's privacy at an all-Chromebook school / Boing Boing Katherine W was seven when her third-grade teacher issued Chromebooks to her class. Her dad, Jeff, is a serious techie, but the school's tech choices didn't sit well with him. He was able to get Katherine an exception that let her use a more private, non-cloud computer for the year, but the next year, Katherine's school said she would have to switch to a laptop that would exfiltrate everything she did to Google's data-centers.

Targeted Ads Don’t Just Make You More Likely to Buy — They Can Change How You Think About Yourself Thanks to online tracking technology, marketers no longer have to rely on assumptions about consumer behavior. Instead, they can deliver ads targeted specifically to individuals based on their behavior online. Marketers have long known that this type of personalized advertising is more effective at generating both clicks and conversions, but they have not fully understood the consumer psychology that makes these behaviorally targeted ads so effective. These ads are indeed more relevant and interesting to consumers—but that’s not the entire story. untitled After two years of hard work Subgraph OS is finally available for alpha download!
