Summary : As the process of owning systems and dragging them into botnets becomes ever more commercialized, exploit kits have emerged as a favorite of attackers; their point-click-own nature means even non-technical people with a little cash can control your PC today. This talk will examine how some popular exploit kits work, from lure through payload; and discuss detection and prevention methodologies, with a focus on IDS/IPS. Live examples from the wild will be used throughout.
