Black Hat 2017: The Best (and Scariest) Hacks

Don't Trust Your Printer

Network printers have long been viewed by researchers as prime targets. They're ubiquitous, connected to the internet, and often lack basic security. But Jens Müller showed that it's what inside that counts. By using the protocols used by nearly every printer to convert files into printed material, he was able to perform a number of attacks. He could extract previous print jobs, and even overlay text or images on documents. The attacks he outlined will exist until someone finally gets rid of these decades old protocols.

Hacking a Tesla (Again)

In 2016, a trio of researchers showed how they were able to take control of a Tesla Model S. This year, the researchers from Tencent KeenLab returned to walk through their attack step by step. But it wasn't all recap: they also examined Tesla's mitigation of their initial attack and presented their new attacks; the team showed off a pair of cars flashing its lights and opening its doors in time to music.

Hacking Apple Pay on the Web

When it first launched, I wrote extensively about Apple Pay, praising its tokenization of credit card data and how Apple wasn't able to track your purchases. But Timur Yunusov wasn't convinced. He discovered it was possible to snag credentials and perform a replay attack using Apple Pay on the web. Better keep an eye on those credit card bills.

Controlling Industrial Robots From Afar

A trio of researchers, representing a team from Politecnico di Milano and Trend Micro, presented their findings on the security of robots. Not your friendly Roombas, but the hardworking and powerful industrial robots found in factories. They found several critical weaknesses that could allow an attacker to seize control of a robot, introduce defects into manufacturing processes, and even potentially harm human operators. More troubling is the discovery that there are many thousands of industrial robots connected to the internet.

Attacking Wind Farms

Researcher Jason Staggs led a comprehensive security a.ssessment of wind farms, which led his team up several 300-foot spinning power plants. Not only was physical security weak (sometimes, just a padlock), but digital security was even weaker. His team developed several attacks that could hold wind farms ransom and even cause physical damage. Think Stuxnet, but for massive, whirling blades of death.

Are Bubbles the Future of Hacking?

Probably not, but Marina Krotofil demonstrated how attacking the valve system in a water pump could be used to create bubbles that reduced the water pump's efficiency and, with time, cause physical damage resulting in the pump's failure. With her presentation, Krotofil sought to demonstrate that insecure devices, like valves, could attack secure devices, like pumps, through novel means. After all, there's no antivirus for bubbles.

the funny thing about alot of hacking is that people tie these devices/systems into the internet needlessly and thats what creates the opportunity for intrusion.

Check it out on Youtube. There were cats in Manhattan who had RFID scanners and would plug up to laptops and scan your pocket just by brushing up against you and have your credit card info write to a spreadsheet...sh*t was genius

There are RFID blocking wallets available now on Amazon.

I used to go to a black hat hacking forum back in the day.. Mostly just to read and talk to some hackers and see what was going on.

I got banned for aking too many questions.

The sites back up but you gotta go through a whole series of things before you get to "the marketplace" thays where the real sh*t is at

OP not to come at you. But.... the scariest (hackers) sh*t happen at "DEF CON" (= elite/best of the best) not Black hat (= 9 to 5 guys). I'm grab some proof, but the "TRUMP SUPPORTS ISN'T GOING TO LIKE IT" rofl!!!!! And this year it was three conferences. "B sides" first, then "Black hat" & last "Def Con". Took place in that order the last two-&-half weeks in July.


US Voting Machines Hacked At DEF CON – Every One

US Voting Machines Hacked, some in minutes at this year’s DEF CON “Voting Village” – not something you want to hear really. Especially with the results of recent elections that the World is currently dealing with the consequences from.


[pic - click to view]



Of course with physical access, most machines can be dominated in some way or another – but the scary part is some of them were done remotely, from a distance.

After the debacle of the 2000 presidential election count, the US invested heavily in electronic voting systems – but not, it seems, the security to protect them.

This year at the DEF CON hacking conference in Las Vegas, 30 computer-powered ballot boxes used in American elections were set up in a simulated national White House race – and hackers got to work physically breaking the gear open to find out what was hidden inside.

In less than 90 minutes, the first cracks in the systems’ defenses started appearing, revealing an embarrassing low level of security. Then one was hacked wirelessly.

“Without question, our voting systems are weak and susceptible. Thanks to the contributions of the hacker community today, we’ve uncovered even more about exactly how,” said Jake Braun, who sold DEF CON founder Jeff Moss on the idea earlier this year.

“The scary thing is we also know that our foreign adversaries – including Russia, North Korea, Iran – possess the capabilities to hack them too, in the process undermining principles of democracy and threatening our national security.”


Perhaps we should really go back to pen and paper and indelibly marking people’s finger tips, not that it’s foolproof either but it certainly seems safer than these digital voting boxes built on Windows XP full of outdated software.

I hope this really does act as a wake-up call to the US and any other countries using digital voting equipment that if it’s this easy to hack, you might want to do something about it.

The machines – from Diebolds to Sequoia and Winvote equipment – were bought on eBay or from government auctions, and an analysis of them at the DEF CON Voting Village revealed a sorry state of affairs. Some were running very outdated and exploitable software – such as unpatched versions of OpenSSL and Windows XP and CE. Some had physical ports open that could be used to install malicious software to tamper with votes.

It’s one thing to physically nobble a box in front of you, which isn’t hard for election officials to spot and stop. It’s another to do it over the air from a distance. Apparently, some of the boxes included poorly secured Wi-Fi connectivity. A WinVote system used in previous county elections was, it appears, hacked via Wi-Fi and the MS03-026 vulnerability in WinXP, allowing infosec academic Carsten Schurmann to access the machine from his laptop using RDP. Another system could be potentially cracked remotely via OpenSSL bug CVE-2011-4109, it is claimed.

We’re told the WinVote machine was not fully secured, and that the intrusion would have been detected and logged, so don’t panic too much. And not all the attacked equipment are used in today’s elections. However, it does reveal the damage that can potentially be done if computer ballot box makers and local election officials are not on top of physical and remote security, especially with a growing interest from Russia and other states. Think of it as a wakeup call.


Pretty scary really, considering various elections around the World are crying foul of rigging (Kenya and Venezuela to start) and many claim Trump was elected due to rigging, probably from Russia.

Of course a lot of it is conspiracy theorists running wild, but there’s certainly some truth in there and with what happened at DEF CON in minutes in most cases it just shows what other Nation States could be doing to global elections.

Also two Congressman were there at "Def Con" live streaming, one on Twitter the other on Facebook. Shocked of what they just watched happen in front of them to the voting machines. Representative Hurd (R-TX) was the one live streaming on Twitter....

Just about anything can be hacked. Every single piece of electrical powered tech has an exploit. And its only gonna get worse since things are becoming more and more technologically advanced. All you can really do is just hope and pray you dont get hacked. Or alt east learn how to counter it.

To make sh*t simple and to the point, nowadays with a cheap piece of equipment anything with a chip can be hacked.

Example, you are at the mall, eating a meal, someone walks by. They don't look at you, touch you or even come within 10 feet. Yet, by walking by with this piece of equipment they steal ALL your credit card info(all of them). Not only that, but everyone within the vicinity gets their sh*t stolen too. It is very accurate as well. Almost 100%, something like 99%.

Anything that has a chip, can be hacked with the same method. Same thing with your phone, same method, only instead they get your text messages, anything with meta data, etc.
