HiTB Haxpo AMS 2014 - My takeaway
Yup. That's my crew T-shirt of Hack in the Box Amsterdam 2014 or now known as Haxpo. It was nice and fun meeting all the .MY and .NL folks again.
I have to admit, I feel like the presented conference topics are not as exciting as last year's. However, the Haxpo (the part where you can enter for free) was quite a success.
Nevertheless, there are couple of interesting topics that caught my attention:
1. Cool idea - splitting java exploits into multiple "innocent" looks Java applets in order to avoid detection. Check out Reloading Java Exploits: Long Live Old JRE! by renown security researcher (read Hacker) LUIGI AURIEMMA .
2. Wanna fly for free? Check-out Exploiting Passbook to Fly for Free by ANTHONY HARITON. This was the most funny presentation that I had seen this year. Full of fun and laughs. NOTE: He did not confirm nor deny whether he did indeed perform the "test: personally :)
See y'all again next year folks!
