Taking DMA Attacks To The Next Level: How To Do Arbitrary Memory Reads/Writes In A Live And Unmodified System Using A Rogue Memory Controller

Wednesday, July 26 | 11:15am-12:05pm | Mandalay Bay CD
Speakers: Anna Trikalinou, Dan Lake

A pair of researchers from Intel  will demonstrate a virtually undetectable direct memory access attack that takes advantage in a flaw in DIMM design that can be perpetrated if attackers have physical access to a device. They'll show how this technique gives attackers the ability to read and modify the memory content of machines in a sleep state without any special ports or invasive hardware modifications.
