Adrian Dabrowski @ Troopers 2016

Adrian Dabrowski gives a talk about Hollywood Hacking at the Troopers16 in Heidelberg.

Abstract: Why did it take 15 Years to finally being able to transfer a Winword file between Mac and PC without troubles, but one can write a 0-day virus for an alien computer system invading the earth with their spaceships in just a few minutes? (Independence Day) How the hack do you update the firmware of a plane in mid-air while chasing that plane in a car? (Scorpion). And why do Movies always feature impossible IP addresses?

Medical doctors aren’t the only ones to suffer from exaggerated expectations caused by Hollywood and TV series.

In this talk, we use plenty of movie excerpts to give you an amusing rollercoaster ride through the ups and downs of screenwriters imagination on computer security.

Adrian Dabrowski @ Troopers TelcoSecDay 2016

Today Adrian Dabrowski gives his talk “Towards Carrier Based IMSI Catcher Detection” at the TelcoSecDay 2016.

Abstract: In this presentation we discuss multiple detection capabilities of IMSI Catchers (aka Stingray) from the network operator’s point of view. We draw a comprehensive picture on current threats against mobile phone devices and networks, including 2G, 3G and 4G IMSI Catchers and present detection and mitigation strategies under the unique large-scale circumstances of a real European carrier. One of the major challenges from the operator’s point of view is the fact that cellular networks were specifically designed to reduce global signaling traffic, and manage as many transactions regionally as possible.
