Attacking Networked Embedded Systems presented at BlackHatAsia 2002

by Fx ,

Summary : Every device on a network that has a processor, some memory and a network interface can become a target. Using printers as an example, the talk will show how a seemingly innocent device can be used by attackers, ranging from attacks on the device to the point where the embedded system becomes an attack platform itself.
The second part will cover software vulnerabilities in embedded systems and the fact that they can ideed be exploited - with a lot less efford then most people still think. As an example, a walk through of a real remote Cisco IOS exploit will be presented.
