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.
DEFCON luminary Ryan “1o57” Clarke (pronounced “Lost”) spoke with me about the badge challenge which he helms each year. In the video above 1o57 shows off one of the custom made “Uber Badges” awarded to winners of several contests at DEFCON 24.
My DEFCON 24 badge, which I was convinced was emitting a RF signal. Possibly communicating with our benevolent robot overlords? Alas, no RF detected.
