Botnets Don't Die: Resurrecting the Dead to Feed on the Living

Available On Demand
Wednesday, Jun. 8, 2022
8:30 AM - 9:20 AM PT
Moscone West 3005

This talk will show that with a bit of creative thinking, attendees can wake the dead and control previously believed retired botnets, all equipped with a small army of ready and able hosts. There are thousands of systems infected with "ronin" implants waiting for a new master to step in. Essentially, participants will learn how to be a cyber necromancer.
