This presentation from Cesar will show how reality is catching up with hacking scenes from Hollywood movies, where hacking is often shown as mysterious and producing amazing results. Various types of attacks will be discussed and, despite the fact that some of these attacks are difficult or complex, Cesar will show you how they are technically feasible. He will demonstrate exploits such as making things explode, how to harm a person because of a hacking attack, how to cause panic in a large city, and so on.

About 8dot8 Security Conference
A group of security professionals in Chile were bored with the typical “computer security conferences” oriented towards management or organized for commercial purposes. To this end we decided to organize a conference that is intended to be 100% technical and focused principally on sharing knowledge and experience.
The principal objective is to share the latest techniques being used, the latest kinds of attacks that have been seen, ways in which they are carried out and how they are being defended against.
