With the connected car becoming commonplace in the market, vehicle cybersecurity continues to grow more important every year. At the forefront of security research, IOActive has amassed real-world vulnerability data illustrating the general issues and potential solutions to the cybersecurity threats today’s vehicles face.
Enrique Nissim’s presentation from 44CON. September 12, 2018. The focus will be on finding bugs and not on exploitation. This will highlight interesting functions and how to find them. See MSDN and references for full details on KMDF.
Revisiting the original research by Ruben Santamarta ‘Wake Up Call for SATCOM Security‘ – this research update comprehensively details three real-world scenarios involving serious vulnerabilities that affect the aviation, maritime, and military industries. The vulnerabilities include backdoors, insecure protocols, and network misconfigurations. This white paper elaborates the approach and technical details of these vulnerabilities, which could allow remote attackers, originated from the Internet, to take control of: Airborne SATCOM equipment on in-flight commercial aircraftsEarth Stations on Vessels, including AntennasEarth Stations used by the US Military in conflict zones
Exposing Security Flaws in Trading Technologies. The days of open outcry on trading floors of the NYSE, NASDAQ, and other stock exchanges around the globe are gone. With the advent of electronic trading platforms and networks, the exchange of financial securities now is easier and faster than ever; but this comes with inherent risks.
Two years ago, we assessed 20 mobile applications that worked with ICS software and hardware. At that time, mobile technologies were widespread, but Internet of Things (IoT) mania was only starting. Our research concluded the combination of SCADA systems and mobile applications had the potential to be a very dangerous and vulnerable cocktail. In the introduction of our paper, we stated “convenience often wins over security. Nowadays, you can monitor (or even control!) your ICS from a brand-new Android [device].”
Former IOActive researcher, Corey Thuen, provides a security overview presentation of the various vulnerabilities affecting the trucking industry systems, with a focus on ELD vulnerabilities. (presentation PDF – Black Hat 2017)
IOActive researchers give you an inside view of the IOActive Labs research facilities and highlight research hacking ATMs, Segways, and skimmers.
Radioactivity is a part of our environment; we are continuously exposed to natural radiation arising from the Earth and even from outer space. We are also exposed to artificial sources of radiation, derived from human activities. Ionizing isotopes are used across multiple sectors: agriculture, medicine, research, biochemistry, and manufacturing. The need for sophisticated devices to measure and detect the presence of radiation seems clear. Critical infrastructure, such as nuclear power plants, seaports, borders, and even hospitals, are equipped with radiation-monitoring devices. This equipment detects and prevents threats ranging from smuggling…
Robots are going mainstream. Similar to other new technologies, we’ve found robot technology to be insecure in a variety of ways, and that insecurity could pose serious threats to the people and organizations they operate in and around. This paper is based on our own research, in which we discovered critical cybersecurity issues in several robots from multiple vendors. We describe the currently available technology, some of the threats posed by a compromised robot, the types of cybersecurity issues we discovered, as well as security recommendations based on the findings….
With the Connected Car becoming commonplace in the market, vehicle cybersecurity grows more important by the year. At the forefront of this growing area of security research, IOActive has amassed real-world vulnerability data illustrating the general issues and potential solutions to the cybersecurity issues facing today’s vehicles. This paper explains the differences in testing methodologies, with recommendations on the most appropriate methods for testing connected vehicle systems. Detailed findings follow, including the impact, likelihood, overall risk, and remediation of vulnerabilities IOActive consultants have discovered over the course of thousands of…
