Presentation Title: Trends in Real World Attacks: A Compilation of Case Studies
Presentation Details:

The number of reported security incidents has always been proportional to the number of vendor-issued vulnerabilities. However, recently this trend seems to have broken. This can be attributed to an increase in attacks against custom applications, attacks targeting end-users, zero-day exploits, and self-propagating worms. This presentation will discuss such trend-breaking real world attacks ranging from the installation of keystroke-logging Trojans on end-user machines through an IE buffer overflow to attacks against wireless clients. Each case study will discuss the motivation of the attack, an overview of the underlying technical details and its impact on business.
