There's a lot of very cool stuff out there with a huge amount of educational value in the blackhat arena. I figure that it might be good to have 1 thread for it.
I posted Chris Piaget's RFID hacking presentation a while back in another thread, but let's start with another:
Black Hat USA 2013 - Hiding @ Depth - Exploring, Subverting and Breaking NAND Flash memoryLayman's Summary:
You can create bad blocks then store data there (NAND memory). Bad blocks are ignored, so you are effectively invisible.
At one point he says, "which I'm not making public." Yeah... uh, we already got the point.
It's a great presentation, and well worth a watch for anyone interested in mobile security.
Linux and Android devs will find this interesting. He also makes reference to the panic_write()
call, which is really wild. I had no idea that existed.
