Pure Hacking to present at Ruxcon 2012 and its inaugural Ruxcon
Breakpoint Conference of International Security Experts
The Shellcode Lab to run in Australia for the first time
Pure Hacking, Australia’s leading specialist information security consultancy today announced Ty Miller, CTO, will be presenting at both Ruxcon 2012, 20 - 21 October 2012 and running training at its new conference, Ruxcon Breakpoint from 15 - 16 October 2012 in Melbourne. At Ruxcon 2012 Ty Miller will present and demonstrate a new attack technique, "Exploiting internal network vulnerabilities via the browser using BeEF Bind" with co-presenter Michele Orru. At Ruxcon Breakpoint, Miller will join an international panel of guest speakers and run his renowned "The Shellcode Lab" training course for the first time for Australian students wanting to learn how to write
shellcode for Linux, Mac 64-bit OSX and Windows.
Miller's Ruxcon 2012 presentation and demonstration on "Exploiting internal network
vulnerabilities via the browser using BeEF Bind" will reveal a new browser attack technique
which allows an attacker to pivot through a web browser in order to exploit a victim's internal
servers. The Browser Exploitation Framework (BeEF) attack technique, known as “BeEF
Bind”, increases the number of potential remote exploits to include many internal service
vulnerabilities throughout the corporate network. A live demonstration of this new attack
technique will also be included in the presentation. His co-presenter for this session is
Michele Orru, a leading researcher on web applications security and related exploitation
For Ruxcon Breakpoint, a new conference which showcases the work of 14 security experts
from around the world, Miller will bring "The Shellcode Lab" to an Australian conference
audience for the first time. The training course focuses on writing shellcode to bypass
security controls to increase the exploitation success rate. Students are taught how to
integrate their shellcode into individual exploits, as well as create Metasploit Exploit
Framework (MSF) payload modules. "The Shellcode Lab" has been held at Black Hat USA
in 2011 and 2012 with overwhelmingly positive feedback.
For Pure Hacking's Miller, the conference and its preceding Breakpoint showcase is an ideal
platform for displaying the Pure Hacking expertise. "The BeEF Bind presentation is
something new and is a new attack technique Australian enterprise needs to better
understand to protect themselves into the future."
"I am also looking forward to sharing "The Shellcode Lab" training course with an Australian
audience on home ground for the first time," he concluded.
