About this talk

The trouble with the world is not that people know too little; it’s that they know so many things that just aren’t so”. This eye-opening quote by Mark Twain makes one think about the possible misconceptions we might have in our minds. In our daily life, we use many tools and rapidly adopt innovative technologies to improve our routine. Yet we are being neutral to the risks involved with those tools due to a false belief regarding the attacking vector and potential threats related to those devices. In this section, we focus and disrupt cyber security misconceptions. From the digital cameras, that we all use to take photos and our indispensable smartphones, to the newest technologies on the public cloud infrastructures, this session presents our research findings and vulnerabilities on those devices. The common denominator for those platforms all have weak spots, allowing malicious individuals to take advantages and reach to our data on devices. Breaking those misconceptions shows that we need to take cyber precautions in order to prevent the potential upcoming attacks. All vulnerabilities presented on the talk were “responsibly disclosed” and are being discussed publicly after the relevant vendors have applied all patches
