Summary : "We are using drivers everywhere even if we dont realize it.
There is at least one driver for each of your devices connected to your computer and many software packages also deliver kernel drivers to serve their low level or performance hungry functions.
Drivers are programs written by people, therefore they suffer from the same problems as other software. Moreover these drivers are running in kernel mode, thus an exploitable vulnerability can give full control to an attacker.
During the presentation I'll cover the theoretical background of kernel driver bug hunting / exploitation and I'll demonstrate a real life example in practice."
