When in Russia: Hacking Vice Abroad

Posted on in Presentations

“Can you hack our producer while she is in Russia?” And so began our adventure. An adventure that ended with hotel room cards, safe passcodes, beaconing implants and access to webcam streams, credit cards and much, much more. This talk will peer behind the curtain, describing exactly how (with explicit permission) we were able to travel to Russia to fully compromise our target.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn about the (cyber) vulnerabilities you may face traveling abroad.
2: Observe real-life exploitation of macs, iphones and more.
3: Learn how to protect yourself when traveling, or even at home.
