2019-02-07: Plany konferencyjne: SINFO, MEGA sekurak hacking party

Krótki post z moim kalendarium konferencyjnym na najbliższe pół roku (za dużo tego nie ma, bo robię sobie rok przerwy od prelekcji znowu):

• (25.02, Kraków) MEGA sekurak hacking party - jeszcze podobno trochę biletów jest, a są dość tanie w porównaniu do sporej liczby eventów, więc zachęcam, zachęcam :).

• (22.02, Lizbona) SINFO - największa darmowa konferencja o IT w Portugalii (chyba pierwszy raz będę na nie-strikte-technicznym wydarzaniu, więc jestem ciekaw jak wyjdzie).

W drugiej połowie roku najpewniej będę na PWNingu, i... może na czymś z zupełnie innej beczki, zobaczymy jak wyjdzie.

Do zobaczenia :)

EN Security papers and research notes

Some conference slides are linked at the bottom of this page.

EN Selected vulnerabilities

The full list of vulnerabilities discovered by me (including collaborative work) can be found here (please note that the list might be out of date).

The Google Application Security / Research site might also contain some of my findings.

EN Coding (selected posts)
EN Tools and libraries
  • PiXieServ is a simplified PXE (network boot) server for Windows and Linux-based OS, created for testing of very small home-made OS. See also the post about it.
  • ExcpHook, a system-wide exception monitor for Windows XP 32-bit. Useful if you're fuzzing something that doesn't like having a debugger attached.
  • Ent is an entropy measuring tool for reverse engineering reconnaissance (see also a post explaining how to use it).
  • HiperDrop is a simple command line process memory dumper for Windows, with a few different work modes.
  • asmloader - this little app executes headerless machine code (compiled assembly code). It's meant to be an aid in learning/teaching and playing with assembly, as well as the right tool when you just need to execute some machine code.
  • NetSock is a simple socket/networking lib/wrapper for C++ I've wrote back in 2003 and update from time to time - I use it for most of my network-enabled projects.
