Workshop outline

Nowadays there are a lot of tools to analyze traffic, but the most important thing to have is the experience and knowledge of a malware analyst. The goal of the workshop is to give a hands-on experience on analyzing the behavior of malware and botnet traffic in the network by studying their ​ web patterns and their ​ traffic behavior. The workshop will use a real IoT botnet capture with real attacks in the network. Participants will learn a methodology to analyze a traffic capture and how to recognize malicious connections. The participants should leave with a good knowledge about how to do an overall analysis picture of the traffic to recognize if there are
malicious behaviors on it.

Requirements:

Attendees are required to have a medium knowledge about networking
Equipment for attendees:
○ Laptop + Power cord
○ Minimal tools installed: wireshark, tcpdump

Does Your IoT expose You? Honeypots, Attacks and Decryption in an Edimax Camera

IoT devices are slowly getting into everyone's home. Their security is so questionable that they usually put owners at risk with vulnerabilities and expose their private data. To better understand the problem the Aposemat Project run several IoT devices as honeypots, including an Edimax camera. In this research we analyze how the camera was attacked from the Internet and how our network analysis exposed very strange behaviors from the camera. We further researched these traffic behaviors of the Edimax camera using reverse engineering methods on its firmware. By studying the firmware we were able to understand the communication between the camera and its remote servers, finding new algorithms used by the manufacturer to obfuscate/encrypt the payload sent between the device and the servers. Those algorithms were never mentioned until this talk, showing new promising ways to understand the decryption of payloads and how Edimax controls its cameras.
IoT devices are cheap, unregulated and obfuscated, making it very hard to evaluate its security and a huge liability to an organization.


Michal Špaček

Michal is a software developer and an application security engineer who's on a mission to show developers how & why to write secure code.

What if I told you browsers can tell servers they don't like the response

The future is here. Your users and their browsers can already tell you what's going on with your site. Automatically, immediately. Malicious JavaScript? Expired certs? 404s? Deprecated features? Crashes? All covered by Reporting API.

We Know Where You Are: How Most Mobile Applications Jeopardize Your Security

Despite the continuous growth of the market of mobile devices it is still unclear nowadays how to know how secure they are, what is happening in them, and how to know if we are safe. In an attempt to understand better the field, we used our own VPN server to capture the traffic of our phones. We tested some widely used mobile applications and we found... well, unexpected things.
Join us in this presentation where we will walk you through a some of our main findings while analyzing the traffic of normal mobile applications, the common problems found, and why there should be more people looking at these issues.


Petr Stuchlík

Developer and network traffic analyst, who enjoys security challenges of modern web applications. From freelancing, Petr crossed corporate sector and eventually ended up founding a software company, where he is currently producing apps for big data visualization.

The messaging menagerie

Message oriented systems gained a lot of developer popularity in the past years and still pushing forward. Protocols like MQTT or AMQP are often found in IoT industry while solutions like Kafka or JMS wire stufftogether in the enterprise world.
There is one interesting thing all messaging solutions have in common
and that's poor security in practice. In this talk I will describe a few
ways of service enumeration, message interception and data decoding
using industry standards as a target

Cybercriminal Activities Managing a New Android Botnet

In mid 2018 we discovered by chance one of the largest reported Android banking botnets know to date that we named Geost. It was discovered from their botmaster logging into one of the Geost C&C servers while using an insecure proxy network created by the HtBot malware. HtBot creates an illegal network of proxies, and our laboratory captured the traffic while executing one instance. Geost resulted to be a new and very large Android Banking botnet operation targeting Russian citizens with almost 1 million victims, 15 C&C servers, thousands of domains, and thousands of malicious APK applications. Geost accesses all the SMS data of victims and has a direct connection to the systems of five large European banks. The discovery of Geost was possible due to a chain of OpSec failures.

During the Geost analysis we found a chat log of a cybercriminal entrepreneur related to the Geost operation. This log exposed numerous projects and activities of the underground group, and gave us a unique insight into how the business operation worked: the human relationships between the cybercriminals, daily routine tasks, motivational issues, money laundering, the decisions taken, and obstacles found. The criminal projects ranged from pay per install, phishing website hosting, and C&C
development to fake APK games development.

This research focuses on the new Geost botnet operations and the OpSec failures that resulted in its discovery. This work is unique in that it shows the attackers communications and the specifics of how an underground cybercriminal business operates. By analyzing their communications we got a better insight into how the underground economy works. We learnt that for these cybercriminals their malicious activities are essentially their occupation.


Martin Žember

Martin Zember is a Pentester since 2007 and recently, he fell in love with red teaming and CTFs.

Why usual pentests suck?
Pentesters have usually their hands tied by the customers themselves. How would it look if pentesters had a freedom to do a proper red team exercise and infiltrate company’s systems, e-mails and buildings?
