BetterCrypto Workshop: A Guide for SysAdmins

The BetterCrypto Project started out in the fall of 2013 as a collaborative community effort by systems engineers, security engineers, developers and cryptographers to build up a sound set of recommendations for strong cryptography and privacy enhancing technologies catered towards the operations community in the face of overarching wiretapping and data-mining by nation-state actors. The project has since evolved with a lot of positive feedback from the open source and operations community in general with input from various browser vendors, linux distribution security teams and researchers.

This workshop will give a concise guide on how to properly deploy networked services in a secure fashion that is applicable today. We will also give an update on the project as well as new development on the front of cryptography, attacks and TLS protocol standardization.

In addition, the workshop will touch on the basics of cryptography. However, this part can only give a gentle intro and a historical view on cryptography.

Workshop - Elasticsearch for incident handlers and forensic analysts

Incident handlers and forensic analysts are all confronted with the same problem: Finding a needle in a haystack, without knowing what the needle looks like.

It doesn't really matter if this haystack is made out of proxy logs, email logs, timelines, dns logs, ids, ... But what matters are the techniques we use to look at this data and find quickly what we are looking for.

In this workshop we will tackle these problems with a combination of three tools: Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana. This trio known as ELK has grown immensely in popularity since the creation of the company in 2012. It is attracting users from the leaders like Splunk, ArcSight, ELSA and co. Together they provide a very powerful blazing-fast open source data analytics tool. Real-time or completely offline. In a single node, in a cluster or in a distributed architecture.

This workshop is highly recommended if you want to work faster with and get more out of things like: mactime, proxy logs, supertimeline, mail logs, (passive)dns logs, firewall logs, syslog, ...

The goal of this workshop is to guide you in the first steps with ELK so that you don't loose time learning it by yourself. After this workshop you will: - be able to install your own ELK (single or multi-node) - have a ELK virtual machine you can play with immediately - have a copy of readymade dashboards and configurations for various log-formats - be able to write your own import filters for the formats you encounter - be able to create your own graphical views in Kibana and visualise your logs - enrich your logs with additional value from geoip, field-extraction, user-agent extraction, ... - probably immediately search for unused servers to build your own ELK cluster at work

If you have an idea of a (forensic) file/log-format that you'd like to be able to parse feel free to contact me at and we'll see what can be done.

Requirements: - Computer to boot the OVF virtual computer (VMWare, VirtualBox, ...)

Workshop: Quarkslab team, IRMA – An Open Source Incident Response & Malware Analysis Platform

IRMA ( is an open-source asynchronous system aiming at helping analyze suspicious files.

We all know that anti-virus (AV) are a failure: if someone is basing his security on this one product, failure is sure. Despite that, everyone also considers AV are also needed to detect the generic attack vectors. A not new idea is to use several AV engines. Due to costs and performance constraints, one host cannot run tons of AV. So, several solutions have appeared lately to provide a central place where suspicious files can be tested towards major AV engines. However, testing suspicious files is only a first step. When one will detect such a file, he might want to apply different analysis, like running it in a sandbox for instance, or statically analyzing the file which requires first to unpack it most of the time. In this lab, we will:

  • Recall our major motivations to build such a system,
  • Present the overall architecture of IRMA which has been designed as a 3 part system,
  • Guide you to setup your own system, running in virtual machines, in less than 30 minutes,
  • Develop together a new analyser and include it to your own IRMA setup,
  • Discuss the mechanics under the hood for people willing to contribute to or to reuse this project.

Jeremy Brown/David Seidman - Microsoft Vulnerability Research: How to be a Finder as a Vendor

Here at Microsoft, our people often find security issues in other vendors’ products, fueling the need for a coordinated approach to working with those vendors to get those bugs fixed. Microsoft Vulnerability Research (MSVR) was created to help ensure that our company demonstrates the same management, in the role of a finder, that we’d like to see from other companies and researchers when reporting vulnerabilities. This presentation will cover the creation of MSVR, including an in-depth look at our processes, and how your company can have a centralized program to do the same. We’ll finish things off with a technical run through of some of the vulnerabilities our finders have discovered and reported through MSVR, showing you what is was like working with vendors to get them fixed advisories released thereafter.

Claudio Guarnieri - Embrace the Viper and live happy

If you have been working on researching malware attacks long enough, you probably developed as I did an increasing frustration while trying to manage your collections of samples. You probably devised a more or less coherent structure of text files, folders and subfolders. Even more probably you lost or forgot many of your samples along the way. However what goes even beyond pure frustration is trying to make a sense out of the infinite amount of scripts that you found yourself using over the time to do your work: Python, Ruby, Bash scripts written by all sorts of people, in all sorts of formats producing all sorts of outputs and scattered all over the Internet. It's a disaster. About a dozen years ago our exploit developer and pentester friends figured they had similar problems and came up with all the popular exploitation frameworks that we're all still using today.

Following their noble tradition I created a tool called Viper, a modular binary management and analysis framework that allows you to easily organize your malware repository and provides you a unified solution to create, collect and execute analysis modules of different kinds. In this presentation we'll walk through Viper's ins and outs and afterwards you'll be able to reorganize your stuff and sleep well at night again.

Xeno Kovah, Corey Kallenberg, John Butterworth, Sam Cornwell - SENTER Sandman: Using Intel TXT to Attack BIOSes

At CanSecWest 2014 we presented the first prototype of Copernicus 2, a trustworthy BIOS capture system. It was undertaken specifically to combat our “Smite’em the Stealthy” PoC which can forge the BIOS collection results from all other systems (including our own Copernicus 1, the open source Flashrom, Intel Chipsec, etc). Copernicus 2 makes use of the open source Flicker project from Jon McCune of CMU which utilizes Intel Trusted Execution Technology in order to build a trustworthy environment from which to run our BIOS measurement code. We specifically chose TXT because it has the ability to disable System Management Interrupts (SMIs) effectively putting the SMM MitM, Smite’em, to sleep.

But if you’ve been following our work (specifically “Defeating Signed BIOS Enforcement” and “Setup for Failure: Defeating UEFI SecureBoot”) you will have seen that we have two other attacks where we leverage the ability to suppress SMIs to break into some BIOSes. Thus the Sandman cometh! We will explain how we could implement the PoC Sandman attack using the same infrastructure as Copernicus 2. We will also explain what can be done against this kind of attack, and how the latest Copernicus 2 attempts to prevent opening the door to the Sandman. We will also cover how Copernicus 1 and 2 can check for the problems with BIOSes that make SMI-suppression attacks feasible, how to tell if you’re vulnerable, and what you may be able to do about it.

Corey Kallenberg, Xeno Kovah, John Butterworth, Sam Cornwell - Extreme Privilege Escalation On Windows 8/UEFI Systems

The UEFI specification has more tightly coupled the bonds of the operating system and the platform firmware by providing the well-defined “Runtime Service” interface between the operating system and the firmware. This interface is more expansive than the interface that existed in the days of conventional BIOS, which has inadvertently increased the attack surface against the platform firmware. Furthermore, Windows 8 has introduced an API that allows accessing this UEFI interface from a privileged userland process. Vulnerabilities in this interface can potentially allow a privileged userland process to escalate its privileges from ring 3 all the way up to that of the platform firmware, which attains permanent control of the very-powerful System Management Mode. This paper discusses two such vulnerabilities that the authors discovered in the UEFI open source reference implementation and the techniques that were used to exploit them.

This is a in depth walkthrough on how I managed to get from an IP address in my city's public WIFI into taking over the network exit nodes. During the course of May this year I conducted a research of an unknown device. In the beginning I only had an IP of the WAN part and an open port. From there I had to find ways to identify the product I was seeing and eventually successfully exploiting it and by that effectively taking over the network.

Anamika Singh - WiHawk - Router Vulnerability Scanner

The elements that play a major role in today’s network architecture are router, gateway, switch, hub, access point etc. In a typical network, wireless or wired router is the key element responsible for connecting the LAN to the internet. A router can be connected to two or more data lines from different network which play the important role of forwarding data packets within computer networks. Security measures at each and every component in network are imperative and there has been significant development in last decade to make networks even more secure. While powerful security rules have been implied at different components of network, router has been one such sensitive and essential element in network which is still poorly configured by companies. They can be compromised by attackers to gain unauthorized access to the private network and can lead to malicious activities like following:

1. An attacker could configure the router to use a malicious DNS (Domain Name System) server, which can then lead to redirection of users to malicious websites. 2. An attacker can set up port forwarding rules to expose internal network services to the Internet. Vulnerabilities in the management interfaces of wireless routers, vulnerabilities in protocols, inconsistencies in router software and weak authentication can expose the device to remote attacks and thus can be compromised by attackers. These issues had been raised by researchers in late 2012 but even if companies provide patches to upgrade management interface and inconsistencies in router software, these vulnerabilities are unlikely to go away soon because many users never update their routers and other embedded systems. Due to above said vulnerabilities there are different types of attacks possible on routers which have been identified: 1. DDos Attack 2. CSRF 3. Brute Force 4. Buffer Overflow 5. Authentication BYpass 6. ROM-0 Attack . In a wireless network there are thousands of Wi-Fi routers which are configured with default user name and passwords, which make them vulnerable to security breaches.

All we can do to find above mentioned vulnerability, scan your router manually and find if your router has any vulnerability mentioned above, But for a non-technical person it’s hard to find out if router is vulnerable or not, this is major reason millions of routers are left open to vulnerabilities and on top of it Vendors doesn’t provide patches for found vulnerability at same time. Now finding these vulnerabilities and making sure that the router in use is not vulnerable to any of the mentioned vulnerabilities is not easy and so far we didn’t have any tool which will prompt you before being victim of attack that your router is vulnerable to any of the above mentioned attack.

WiHawk is an open source tool for auditing IP addresses to sniff out Wireless routers which are configured with default admin passwords and find out the routers which are vulnerable to Bypass Authentication, Cross Site Request Forgery, Buffer Overflow and FTP Authentication Bypass. The tool can be used to identify following types of security vulnerabilities in provided IPs:

a) Authentication Bypass b) Routers configured with default username/passwords c) ROM-0 attack d) Backdoor Vulnerability

Francisco Falcon - Breaking Out of VirtualBox through 3D Acceleration

Oracle VirtualBox is a popular virtualization software which provides -among many other features- 3D Acceleration for guest machines through its Guest Additions. This feature allows guest machines to use the host machine's GPU to render 3D graphics based on then OpenGL or Direct3D APIs. Being a complex piece of software, the 3D Acceleration code -which runs in the context of the VirtualBox hypervisor- opens the door to security problems.

During this presentation we will show how a program running inside a VirtualBox guest OS can exploit memory corruption vulnerabilities located in the code that implements 3D Acceleration for OpenGL in order to break out of the VM and execute arbitrary code on the host OS.

We will start the presentation by taking a look at the Guest/Host communication mechanism, and discussing how VirtualBox implements hardware-based 3D acceleration for OpenGL graphics. Then we'll be ready to uncover three memory corruption vulnerabilities (CVE-2014-0981,CVE-2014-0982 and CVE-2014-0983, all of them discovered during this research) which can be triggered from within the guest OS in order to corrupt the memory of the VirtualBox hypervisor process running on the host OS; finally we will focus on the exploitation phase, discussing how to leverage these vulnerabilities to create an information leak that will allow the guest to read arbitrary memory from the hypervisor (thus allowing to bypass ASLR), and how to hijack the execution flow, ultimately leading us to escape from the virtual machine and gain arbitrary code execution on the host machine.

The talk will finish with a live demo of the Guest-to-Host escape, in which a program running inside a virtual machine will break out of the VM, bypassing protections like ASLR and DEP on the host OS.

Sebastian Garcia - Botnets Behavioral Patterns in the Network. Analysis, Monitoring, Detection and Blocking

We present a behavioral-based network traffic model and free software tool that can detect and stop botnet traffic by identifying specific malicious behaviors. Most of the current Antivirus, IDS and IPS systems still use fingerprint knowledge, predefined rules, statical features and blacklists to detect the malware in the network. While still useful and fast, these technologies do not have the power to recognize the behaviors in the network and therefore can not give the users a semantic, high-level technology to detect botnet traffic. Our model of traffic behavior is independent of the payload and IP addresses and is only based on three features of the network flows. To create our model we analyzed dozens of monthlong botnet captures in our Malware Capture Facility Project and we extracted the inherent characteristics of their time-based behaviors. Our Markov Chains-based detection method was compared and verified in real captures with normal, botnet and unknown data.

Using our method we developed a PoC tool that can create new models of known malicious actions, visualize them and then detect similar traffic in the network by generalizing these models. Based on the results, we believe that this tool can greatly help improve and protect users from sophisticated attacks.

Shahar Tal - I hunt TR-069 admins - pwning ISPs like a boss

Residential gateway (/SOHO router) exploitation is a rising trend in the security landscape - ever so often do we hear of yet another vulnerable device, with the occasional campaign targeted against specific versions of devices through independent scanning or Shodan dorking. We shine a bright light on TR-069/CWMP, the previously under-researched, de-facto CPE device management protocol, and specifically target ACS (Auto Configuration Server) software, whose pwnage can have devastating effects on critical amounts of users. These servers are, by design, in complete control of entire fleets of consumer premises devices, intended for use by ISPs and Telco providers. or nation-state adversaries, of course (sorry NSA, we know it was a cool attack vector with the best research-hours-to-mass-pwnage ratio). We investigate several TR-069 ACS platforms, and demonstrate multiple instances of poorly secured deployments, where we could have gained control over hundreds of thousands of devices.

Paul Jung - Bypassing Sandboxes for fun… Profit will be realized by sandbox vendors.

Nowadays malware sandboxes are commonly used by malware researchers. Sandboxes have also find they place commercially as a new security device. Not surprisingly, As was firewall in the 90’, IPS in early 2K and Web applications firewall recently, they are presented as a new silver bullet security device in the threat detection arsenal of vendors.Even if it could be very helpful in some cases. It’s not as perfect as vendors claims. Since all protections are subject to countermeasures, bypassing sandbox detection is now a feature commonly seen in malwares and droppers samples.

As personal hobby I had studied how malware try to bypass sanboxes. I have alsofound other tricks to bypass some of them. We will see common sandboxes detection tricks used in the wild by malware’s dropper.

In this talk, we explore how images can be used as active exploits. By shifting evil payloads to images, it is possible to defeat even the most sophisticated systems of threat detection. We shall see how exploits can be encoded in image pixels, executing Javascript through images, and lastly how vector images are being used in browser heap memory manipulation.

Attila Marosi - Inside spying - Stripping the controversial FinFisher application for Android phones

Most possibly there is no need to make a long introduction when speaking about the famous FinSpy application, a product of the company FinFisher from Gamma Group. The large amount - 40 Gb - of data downloaded illegally gives matter to easy chat and make serious concern for every part of the professionally, politically or even those superficially interested only. I'm intended to deliver you details of my research made on one of the stolen codes, made for Android phones. When having learned its structure we'll try to bring it to life in order to test it' abilities. As a result of the analysis we will be able to create a well-crafted SMS which is able to disclose the exists of the tool on a device. Furthermore, with this technique we will be able to hijack the tool and we would gain full access on the device - thus we may have a law-enforcement tool to spy for us. No need to say it's not a common application we are used to see everywhere. The technical solutions are quite interesting.

Dominique Bongard - Weak random number generator vulnerability in WPS External PIN protocol implementations

Wi-Fi Protected Setup is an optional certification program designed to ease the setup of security-enabled Wi-Fi networks. An online bruteforce attack against WPS PIN was published in 2011. As a consequence, rate throttling and lockout of bruteforce attempts are now common remediation measures. We have devised a new attack that leverages weaknesses in the random generators of some Wi-Fi access points to obtain the WPS PIN and WPA passphrase in one single attempt.

Enno Rey, Antonios Atlasis, Rafael - Evasion of High-End IDPS Devices at the IPv6 Era

The forthcoming depletion of IPv6 addresses is now closer than ever. For instance, ARIN states that they are currently in phase three of a 4-phased "IPv4 Countdown Plan" being already down to about 0.9/8s in aggregate. On the other hand, RIPE NCC has reached its last /8 IPv4 address space quite some time ago. Moreover, the nodes of the networks (end-hosts, networking devices, security devices etc.) are already pre-configured with IPv6 connectivity, at least to some extent. All the latest popular Operating Systems, from Windows to Linux or FreeBSD, send IPv6 messages out-of-the-box while the hosts are reachable by using at least IPv6 link-local addresses. So, IPv6 is finally here and it is definitely going to stay. However, what IPv6 does not forgive is the lack of security awareness. IPv6 is not IPv4 with just extended address space. Several times in the past has been shown that this "new" layer-3 protocol, apart from the huge address space and other new functionalities, also brings with it several security issues. In this talk, we are going to present our latest research findings regarding the evasion of high-end commercial and open-source IDPS, all with latest patches, extending our previously presented work even further. These techniques allow the attackers to launch any kind of attack against their targets, from port scanning to SQLi, while remaining undetected. During the talk, not only these issues will be demonstrated with live demos, but, additionally, the used techniques that allow attackers to exploit even a really minor detail in the design of the IPv6 protocol will be described in detail and simple ways to reproduce them will be given. Finally, specific mitigation techniques will be proposed, both short-term and long-term ones, in order to protect your network from them.

Frederik Braun - We're struggling to keep up (A brief history of Browser Security Features)

The web as it appears today consists of apps, rather than hypertext. Recent additions to HTML5 APIs and the web application landscape raises the stakes for browser security: The attacker may now easily shift his target to active browsing sessions rather than the underlying operating system. This talk covers the browser security model as it currently stands in modern user agents: After discussing legacy as well as recently added features, it will also present some expected enhancements in the browser security landscape. Following this overview, common bypasses and shortcomings of these security will be discussed.

Andrzej Dereszowski - Funcap: Rapid reversing with IDA Pro

The presentation would be about a tool called FunCap ( This script records function calls (and returns) across an executable using IDA Pro debugger API, along with all the arguments passed. It dumps this info and inserts it into IDA's inline annotations. This way, static analysis that usually follows the behavioral runtime analysis when analyzing malware, can be directly fed with runtime info such as decrypted strings returned in function's arguments. In author's opinion this allows to understand the program's logic way faster than starting the "zero-knowledge" reversing. The plugin has earned the second prize in Hex-Rays Plug-In Contest 2013.

Serge Guelton - Python Code Obfuscation: Improving Existing Techniques

The Python language has attracted many uses over the past ten years, both in the academic and industrial context. To make software deployment easier or to make it harder to reverse the application, several Python packers have been developed. These tools ``freeze the Python code and bundle it with the interpreted in a single binary, eventually applying several obfuscation level in the process.

This article draws a quick map of existing Python-specific obfuscation techniques. It then leverages on the counter measures that have been used by reversers to propose innovative techniques based on joint source - interpreter obfuscation to make reversing and especially decompiling more difficult.

Filippo Valsorda - The Heartbleed test adventure

This is the story of the online Heartbleed test many of you used earlier this year.

The system, a simple Go service with a static frontend, scaled from zero to 25,000 checks/minute in a few hours, reached a peak of ~50 backend servers and answered > 200 million requests in two weeks. It also provided one of the best overviews of the bug impact, with good statistics about the affected hosts.

The user base changed quickly, changing priorities. The concern for users privacy caused radical design decisions. Moreover, this was probably the first PoC in the wild and that required mindful consideration when first open sourcing the tool. Finally, the community feedback has been (mostly) great and overwhelming. The talk will go over the technical and practical background to all this.

Axelle Apvrille, Ludovic Apvrille - SherlockDroid, an Inspector for Android Marketplaces

With over 1,200,000 Android applications in Google Play alone, and dozens of different marketplaces, Android malware unfortunately have no difficulty to sneak in and silently spread. This puts a high pressure on antivirus teams. To try and spot new malware instances, we have built an infrastructure, named SherlockDroid, whose goal is to filter out the mass of applications and only keep those which are the most likely to be malicious for future inspection by Anti-virus teams.

SherlockDroid consists of marketplace crawlers, code-level property extractors and a classification tool named Alligator which decides whether the sample looks malicious or not, based on some prior learning.

During our tests, we have extracted properties and classified over 480k applications. Since the beginning of July 2014, SherlockDroid has crawled 88,369 applications with the detection of one new malware, Android/Odpa.A!tr.spy, and one new riskware. With previous findings, this increases SherlockDroid and Alligator’s “Hall of Shame” to 7 malware and potentially unwanted applications.
