I have a pleasure to inform the blog readers about the incoming event I am taking part in – the polish SecDay conference (regarding security in a general meaning)! ;)
My presentation’s subject is the practical approach to, so called, bootkit creation. To make things clear, bootkit consists of a number of code blocks present on some kind of bootable media, being able to take complete control over the attacked machine, by simply performing some run-time memory modifications at the time of OS startup process. To be exact, I will try to show how easy pwning a machine is, provided the potential attacker has physical access to the target. The steps taken by our bootable code to achieve specific goals (hacking the user authorization mechanism etc) will be described in detail.
The event will is going to be held in polish, but I expect my presentation stuff to be released in both PL and EN versions ;)
