Summary : "Many people (Steve included until recently) hold the opinion that the little black boxes you use to connect to the Internet are mostly little black boxes that do little else. When he bought a portable Mifi hotspot, little did he know that after peeling back the covers that he held in his hands one of the most easily re-purposed malicious toolkits. In this talk, Steve will walk delegates through firmware analysis, router hacking techniques and final through modification in order to re-use them for nefarious purposes. There may (or may not) be demos if there's time. Just make sure that the wifi network you're connecting to is the one you think it is and not Steve's."
