Gearing up for DefCon 7/9/2011

Red Star

Okay, we slacked off with meetings this month but we promise to make it up. With DefCon around the corner we’re revving up with a mini-con of our own. Here’s what we have in store. Nate Morrison will be rocking with ROP chain exploits. Nate has been into hacking and network security for over 6 years with roles as network and system administrator in the education sector. He has recently gotten into reverse engineering of windows executables and exploitation development as well as understanding how DEP, ASLR and other exploitation defensive tactics work. He currently works at FPL in Miami in network security operations. And in his spare time does biking, flying and reverse engineering of software. Nate’s talk is about using ROP chains within a buffer overflow attack to render DEP and ASLR useless. While more difficult than a traditional “rect ret” buffer overflow, It has become a common tactic for exploitation development in today’s buffer overflow attacks on software out of necessity due to the common use of DEP/ASLR in modern software/OS defense. Alex will be covering PGP signing and encryption.


Talk: Red Dawn (Red Star OS)

Bio: KimtheIll is the number 1 hacker in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). KimtheIll does not English well.

Objective: To educate listeners on the methods used by the elite hackers of North Korea gain entry to systems in the west. To prove once and for all North Korea is a serious threat to national security. To demonstrate how to use this multi purpose operating system, from chess to hacking and dumping data bases. Show built in features of encryption, and securing red star from the constant probing of the west.

Summary: Red Star is the 100% North Korean built operating system. Red Star is described as BackTrack mixed together with Windows and provides a myraid of hacking and infiltration tools. That can incorporate open source software from the internet along with installing windows files. The GUI looks like KDE with windows icons and folders while the naming system is still linux. I could only find the 32 bit version. Red Star is also only distributed in the Korean language. Copies of Red Star will also be passed out to attendees of the meeting.

*all copy’s of Red Star OS should be considered backdoored by the (DPRK)
