PHP Malware Examination - 2018-11-07 21:56:04

Presented by Tim Follow me on Twitter I was asked earlier this week by a friend to have a look at some malware, which had been uncovered on a compromised computer.

CyberChef was developed by GCHQ to quickly perform certain operations on inputs.

Presented by Paul w Follow me on Twitter Introduction Last night I went to the meetup group “M1 Con” hosted by Digital Interruption and Outsource UK Ltd. Jay Harris gave a talk about mobile security - it wasn’t super technical, but it highlighted the fact that clearly security is still a bit of an after thought especially when it comes to mobile development - he cited examples of issues that crop up in mobile devices that were fixed in web apps (XSS vulnerabilities for example) long ago.

Disclosure Woes: Dealing With Non-Techies - 2018-02-02 00:00:00

Written by Rob What I Am Writing About Unlike most things I publish, this isn’t going to focus on how I came to find a vulnerability, but rather the problems I had trying to disclose it, and things that I could have approached better, in the hope it may help other people in the future if faced with being a small fish in a big pond which is trying to approach a larger organisation, who have few technical staff.
