VoidSec CTF: Secure the Flag – Writeup

It has been a while since my last blog post, so I’m (finally) writing the write-up of the: VoidSec CTF Secure the flag. The CTF was made possible thanks to the sponsorship with Bitdefender that put some licenses for its product as a prize for the first three winners. This CTF was web based, no binary exploitation nor reverse engineering and/or crypto was involved. Before I dive into deep, let me explain what was the goal of this CTF and why it [...]

Cerber Dropper Ransomware Analysis

Before the month ends (I’m sorry but my time was really sucked up by planning and developing the HackInBo’s CTF, that I hope you will enjoy) I would like to post this very small and brief analysis of the latest JavaScript dropper used by the Cerber Ransomware in its campaign. I would also like to thank the Hacktive Security’s guys for the following sample: Dropper: MD5 afd5aa687ed3931d39f180f8e15500e1 SHA1 11460389a303e58086a2b7dbdab02437fb001434 SHA256 8b00174be5f9dd6a703bc5327e1be4161cd3922ca9a338889717370b53d4ca71 Cerber Ransomware: MD5 2dd3bd1801989ff6625aa041761cbed3 SHA1 08f28d5a7d32528fdb2b386334669d6b2b4226cb SHA256 a27c202bffde364fc385e41a244649e8e7baaec97c44c45cd02bb59642e1fb0e This time I will not take in exam the binary, [...]

Hacking the DJI Phantom 3

Finally, during Christmas time, I had some spare time to play with my flying beast; I’m speaking about trying to hack my DJI Phantom 3. It was my first time that I operate with drones or similar embedded system and at the beginning I didn’t have any clue about how I could interact with it. The Phantom 3 comes with an aircraft, controller and an Android/iOS app. Let’s start from the beginning: As a first step, I have analysed the protocols, the connection [...]

HackInBo 2016 – Winter Edition

Saturday 29th October I was in Bologna for the HackInBo and during this week a lot of you, foreign readers, asked me what the HackInBo is, if it was good and what type of event is it, so, I will try to break it down.

It is hard to describe because it is very different from any other events that I can [...]
