viaForensics webinar: Mobile forensic challenges on iOS and Android
klevanat February 20,2015 This guy seems very smart if a bit hung up on social media sites. It's cool how he goes relatively in-depth through each stage of how he will ultimately pinpoint the location of someone he wants to meet on facebook. How he reduces the randomness of the PHP cookie seems hard even just listening so I'm guessing not something the average user can do, however more and more people are creating tools that anyone can use.
I also did not know that browsers could be exploited to send SPAM, and had never heard of NAT Pinning so this was a pretty good watch. Cool the way he detects what kind of router. The Geolocation and MAC stuff is unsurprising, though a bit unsettling.
skatakamat March 15,2015 This gu's amazing. He walked us through very detail of locating people just based on their mac addresses.
He spoke about spamming through browsers.
NATPINNING was coolest of all
nbodykat April 22,2015 Alright the PHP reduction talk was a bit complex during his explanation. I would have to listen to this several times to understand how to do this. I personally am not going to take the time to do that because I don't have the motivation just to figure out how to attack someone on the Internet. This is a lot of work just to send a message to Anna Ferris. Interesting discussion of NAT pinning. I have not heard of this before, but it's no surprise someone would figure out how to circumvent new security measures. At least he points out ways to prevent the NAT pinning. He makes a good point with the geolocation section. I have changed my default account for my router just because I am aware of the fact that a lot of people fail to change the default settings and that is how their networks and routers end up compromised. I find it disturbing that google is doing street view and checking out WIFI data and triangulating my network. I don't like that. Fortunately, I turn off my WIFI router when I am not home because quite frankly if it's not on, someone can't try to crack my WIFI. I also have AES WPA2 because I really don't want to make things easy for those who are too cheap to pay for their own services.
DPerryat April 24,2015 Indeed Privacy is dead. I felt the most secure when I was out at sea on vacation and my phone was disabled and off. Great points on securing routers; I know too many that are wide open . default. Very interested in looking into the MAC address / geolocation stuff
mariawhit8at April 26,2015 I think this is a very interesting way to present security topics via a person previously banned by the secret service from touching computers. His focus on how savvy security professionals get attacked, is a topic I've neve seen explored in this way. The NAT pinning topic was new to me.
