Black Hat USA Offers Inside Look at Boeing 787 Security Flaws

The 787 Dreamliner, WhatsApp, and Windows 10 are all subjects of cutting-edge Reverse Engineering talks at this year's August event.

Come out to Black Hat USA in Las Vegas next month and hone your reverse-engineering skills by checking out some Briefings on the Reverse Engineering track, which offer expert insight on everything from vulnerability discovery to advanced exploitation techniques via the reverse engineering of hardware, software, and protocols.

After all the headlines about Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner jet, Arm IDA and Cross Check: Reversing the Boeing 787's Core Network is a can’t-miss Briefing. This talk will provide the first public analysis of the Boeing 787's core network, revealing previously unknown vulnerabilities that would allow an attacker to compromise the security of the original design. The talk will also elaborate on the additional implications of these security flaws.

Reverse Engineering WhatsApp Encryption for Chat Manipulation and More will give you a unique look at how security researchers successfully decrypted WhatsApp message traffic by reverse-engineering the messaging app’s source code. This is a big deal since encrypted communication is one of WhatsApp’s primary selling points. Attend this Briefing and learn three possible attacks that exploit this vulnerability, giving attackers immense power to create and spread misinformation from what appear to be trusted sources.

If you’re more concerned about security holes in Microsoft products like Outlook and Exchange check out Hunting for Bugs, Catching Dragons, a Briefing about possible (scripting-free) exploits in these products. It’s a rare opportunity to learn about the latest security holes in bugs in some of the most common tools used in business today, direct from the team at Microsoft.

Paging All Windows Geeks – Finding Evil in Windows 10 Compressed Memory will reveal details of memory compression implementation in Windows 10, and explore the undocumented structures and algorithms involved in the process. Using what you learn in this Briefing you’ll be able to access to data in the newly introduced (and undocumented) virtual store, which should help you prevent malware from evading detection during memory forensic analysis.

Black Hat USA returns to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
