1) Hacking Exposed: The Mac Attack

Speaker: Dmitri Alperovitch@DAlperovitch ), George Kurtz ( @George_Kurtz )

Windows attacks receive all the attention. However, Mac and Linux have gained in popularity with the adversary. This session will focus on common Mac attack vectors and other cross-platform hacks that are typically seen in enterprise intrusions. We will also cover practical counter measures to make these alternate platforms more resilient.

2) Android Serialization Vulnerabilities Revisited

Speaker: Roee Hay ( @roeehay )

This session is about Android Serialization vulnerabilities. We revisit two vulns found in Android (CVE-2014-7911, CVE-2015-3837) which allowed for privilege escalation. We also present vulns found in third-party SDKs (CVE-2015-2000/1/2/3/4/20) which allowed for arbitrary code execution in apps which used them. But what has been done to prevent similar vulns? The session will answer this question.

3) The State of End-User Security—Global Data from 30,000+ Websites

Speaker: Andreas Baumhof ( @abaumhof )

We live in a rapidly changing environment. Mobile commerce is skyrocketing, browsers/OS are changing, web applications enable increasing functionality—yet the only thing that seems constant is the amount of flaws and vulnerabilities we find in these software components. Using data from more than 30,000 websites, this session will explore the state of security ecosystem and myths and assumptions.

4)Building an Android Scale Incident Response Process

Speaker: Adrian Ludwig

The Android ecosystem has over one billion active devices from hundreds of OEMs and carrier networks. The Android Security Team will explain how the ecosystem is able to respond quickly and effectively to security incidents. This will be part historical analysis of actual incidents, such as the Stagefright vulnerabilities, and part data-focused analysis of technology and processes we developed.

6) Wireless Infusion Pumps: Securing Hospitals’ Most Ubiquitous Med...

Speaker: Nathan Lesser ( @natelsr )

Imagine being dependent on a wireless infusion pump to receive the correct dosage of life-supporting medication. Now imagine the implications, were that pump to be maliciously hacked. In this session learn more about how to successfully secure these medical devices, based on work being conducted at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) with premier health care organizations.

7) Finding Triggered Malice in Android Apps

Speaker: Christopher Kruegel@lastlinelabs )

Traditional techniques to detect malice in Android apps struggle to identify trigger-based changes to application logic. Unfortunately, such triggers are a key component of targeted malware, where the trigger is the mechanism that ensures that the code is only executed at the target. This talk will review how static analysis can be used to detect and leverage triggers for more robust detection.

8) Upwardly Mobile: Looking at Evolving Cybercrime Tactics in Mobil... 

Speaker: John Miller

This session will cover two key trends in mobile malware observed over the past 12 months and explore the evolution in fraud-linked mobile malware where criminals are developing credential theft tools that attempt to duplicate the successes of Windows malware in modifying victim interactions with targeted services. Also a look at mobile ransomware variants becoming more numerous and damaging.
