The following links are some of my past information security research. Not all.
In preperation for this competition, Chris Anastasio and I found multiple vulnerabilities and developed exploits targeting several ICS applications that allowed us to win the competition!
Some past presentations that I have shared.
In this presentation I discuss a few interesting primitives in the current PHP environment. The first allows an attacker to achieve an information disclosure using TypeError and the second is how an external entity injection (XXE) vulnerability can be leveraged for deserialization of untrusted data.
I discussed how I developed a postscript fuzzer to target Adobe’s postscript engine and uncover many zeroday vulnerabilities.
I discussed how I found a use-after-free vulnerability and chained it together with an uninitialized object vulnerability to achieve reliable exploitation bypassing several operating system mitigations.
Roberto and I discussed how we found over 200+ Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities within Trend Micro Software.
Here I demonstrated a new technique/variation for exploitation against the Windows 7 heap manager that abuses the allocation offset mechanism. Additionally, I also presented a likely attack technique against the consumer preview version of the Windows 8 heap manager.
This presentation was about the introduction of a plugin for Immunity Debugger that I developed called heaper that is designed to not only detect a corrupted heap state before out-of-bounds memory access, but was also designed to detect exploitable conditions in past Windows operating systems.
