Thursday, October 8th – 6:12pm @ Virtual
Look around your workspace – do you have a wireless keyboard or mouse? If so, maybe power them off while @FreqyXin is around:
Mousejack and its associated wireless HID attack surface came to notoriety a few years ago, with the help of some exceptionally cheap hardware, and Bastille Labs’ eye-catching web site. The risk that users could be attacked through their wireless mouse or keyboard from major manufactures, certainly rattled more than a few CISOs. During this chat we will talk about Mousejack and the resulting corporate response, from my first chance exposure to the device as an intern, through to being offered a position to lead internal pen testing for uncovering massive exposure within an organization. This is essentially the story of how I broke into the security industry –while still in college, with tales of technical triumphs and hacker pranks for both red and blue team to enjoy.
Always love a good prank, can’t wait!
As usual these past few months, we will be meeting online at https://cafe.cyberia.club/dc612.
