Assignment #1: Bind TCP Shell
Create a shell_bind_tcp shellcode that binds to a port and execute a shell on an incoming connection, the port number should be easy to configure.Instead of going for the path of writing a C bind TCP shell from...

SCADA, A PLC's Story
During the last few years, SCADA quickly gained the major news headlights with different frightening articles: from STUXNET to breaches like the electrical power supply grid in Ukraine (December 2015). Since SCADA systems are actively used across various industries (oil & gas, pharma, power plants, critical infrastructures) to perform critical operations on daily basis, SCADA security has also become...

Windows Kernel Debugging & Exploitation Part1 – Setting up the lab
voidsec2019-07-17T14:35:29+00:00Recently I was thrilled with the opportunity to build a PoC for ms-14-066 vulnerability aka “winshock” (CVE-2014-6321). While that will be material for another blog post, in order to debug the vulnerability, I had to set up a lab with windows kernel mode debugging enabled. So, without any further ado, here my setup and the steps used in order to enable Windows Kernel Debug.
Host system: Windows 10 with VMware Workstation 15.1.0 (build-13591040)Guest systems:Windows 7 x86 ultimate sp1 (debugger)

voidsec2019-06-24T14:10:47+00:00Industrial Control System, what are they?
TL;DR: In a nutshell, Industrial control systems (ICS) are “computers” (PLC) that control the world around you. They're responsible for managing the air conditioning in your office, the turbines at a power plant, the lighting at the theatre or the robots at a factory
Industrial Control System (ICS) is a general term used to describe several types of control systems and associated instrumentation used for industrial process control.Such systems can range from a few modular...

Rubyzip insecure ZIP handling & Metasploit RCE (CVE-2019-5624)
voidsec2019-04-24T15:41:06+00:00 This is a re-posting of the original article "On insecure zip handling, Rubyzip and Metasploit RCE (CVE-2019-5624)" that I have wrote on DoyensecDuring one of our projects we had the opportunity to audit a Ruby-on-Rails (RoR) web application handling zip files using the Rubyzip gem. Zip files have always been an interesting entrypoint to triggering multiple vulnerability types, including path traversals and symlink file overwrite attacks. As the library under testing had symlink processing disabled, we focused on path...

A talk where I detailed analysed the DJI Phantom 3 model’s architecture , its attack vectors, reverse-engineered the SDK and the network protocol. I also had a specific focus section on Drones Forensics Artefacts Analysis and Methodology.
