PODCAST: Physical Pen-testing with Jek Hyde

Jek-Hyde-baby-bump-pic-bathroom-1Guest Jek Hyde of Sincerely Security with prosthetic “baby bump.”

My guest this episode is “Jek” a social engineer/pen-tester who recently live tweeted a real world penetration test in which her team successfully breached a client’s corporate offices and networks. We talk about how she got into social engineering and information security. It was fun to learn about her experiences and pick up a few tips and tricks as I prepare for the Social Engineering Capture The Flag competition at DEFCON next week!

“Mirai and IoT Botnet Analysis” SLIDES – PDF FILE

At this year’s RSA security conference in San Francisco, researcher Rob Graham gave a presentation entitled “Mirai and IoT Botnet Analysis.” His talk examined the infamous “Mirai” Internet of Things botnet and shared details on how it operates. Graham also covered technical aspects of the cameras it infects and detailed his own experimentation with Mirai in the wild. He went on to discuss last year’s massive DDoS attacks on DNS provider Dyn, which involved variations of the Mirai IoT botnet.

No official AV video recording of this talk, but the audio and RSAC slides are all you need.

Enjoy!
