Other Wireless: New Ways Of Being Pwned presented at Blackhat USA 2007

Tags: Security Wireless

Summary : There are many other wireless devices
besides Wifi and Bluetooth. This talk examines the security of some of
these devices, including wireless keyboards, mice, and presenters. Many
of these devices are designed to be as cost effective as possible. These
cost reductions directly impact their security. Examples of chip level
sniffing will be shown as well as chip level injection attacks allowing
an attacker to control the target system. The hardware used in these
devices will be examined along with an attacker toolkit consisting of
low cost hardware and software.
