Becoming The Quiz Master: Thanks RE. presented at hacktivity2018 2018

by Jack S,


Summary : linkcabin aims to discuss the journey of reverse engineering a pub quiz machine, to a point of emulation. By reverse engineering the software, lessons have been learnt in implementation of security, limits in 'security by obscurity' software solutions and how complex actual machines which involve betting are. After reverse engineering parts of the machine, and coming from a threat intelligence background, it becomes clear how similar software and malware developers minds really are for functionality.While still developing software for an archaic operating system, much like critical infrastructure around the world, it becomes hard to balance both security and functionality.
