• Data Mining as a Tool for Security
      Jason Andress
      Given the current state of heightened security across the globe today, the ability to sift through data and search for key information and the occurrence of particular patterns is highly desirable.

    • Movement on the Mobile Exploit Front
      Tamin Hanna
      It did not take an industry expert to verify predictions of an everincreasing amount of vulnerabilities in device software: Nokia’s Curse of Silence issue should have convinced even the most stubborn of do-gooders.

    • Assessing Microsoft Office Communication Server R1/R2 with OAT
      Abhijeet Hatekar
      The mantra of any good security engineer is: ‘Security is not a product, but a process.’ It’s more than designing strong cryptography into a system; it’s designing the entire system such that all security measures, including cryptography, work together. – Bruce Schneier

    • Manipulating The Network with PacketFu
      Keith Lee

    • Intelligence Report: Analysis of a Spear Phishing Attack
      Matthew Wollenweber, Adam Pridgen

    • Methods of Secrecy
      Tamin Hanna
      Keeping data secret has been important from the very moment knowledge was able to confer a benefit to others. Ancient Roman ruler Julius Caesar used an encryption scheme called a substitution cipher.

    • Exploiting NULL Pointer Dereferences
      Marcin Jerzak, Tomasz Nowak
      The landscape of kernel exploitation techniques is very wide and evolves all the time. The kernel developers apply more and more protection measures to cover all the attack vectors and (not only) bad guys are inventing new sorts of attacks, exploitation methods and ways to bypass the existing mechanisms. Almost like an arms race.

    • Bypassing Hardware Based Data Execution Prevention (DEP) on Windows 2003 Service Pack 2
      David Kennedy
      A short history on Data Execution Protection (DEP): it was created in order to prevent execution in memory in areas that aren’t executable. Before trying this, I highly suggest reading Skape and Skywing’s Article in UnInformed called Bypassing Windows Hardware-Enforced DEP.

    • We’re losing to the bad guys. But it’ll change, and here’s how…

    • A Look at the Malware Trends Expected in 2010
      Julian Evans
