Global superpowers do not have a monopoly on cyber-warfare. Smaller nations and even nonstate actors may soon crash the party. This presentation will map a viable shortcut to the cyber-battlefield: reverse engineering advanced persistent threat (APT) digital weapons and replacing the payload with a custom Molotov cocktail. The strategic implications of this tactical chicanery are enormous.
Learning Objectives: 1: Explore a critical and often-overlooked aspect of cyber-warfare. 2: Understand the ease with which re-weaponization of malware is possible. 3: Learn how to prepare for this cutting-edge challenge.
