Kernel Wars in Vegas!

Kernel Wars is back, this time at BlackHat USA and DefCon in Las Vegas. Looking forward to seeing you there!

The GDI bug and the FreeBSD 802.11 vulnerability that was discussed in the original BlackHat Europe presentation in Amsterdam will be included this time too. The NetBSD bug have been replaced with... A new NetBSD 0-day. :>

We have also brought a new co-speaker this time, Claes Nyberg. Claes is also the developer of our in-house fuzzer Itchy, that our main bug hunter Christer Öberg is constantly discovering new vulnerabilities with. :) Claes will talk about his exploit for the OpenBSD ICMPv6 bug, found by Alfredo Ortega from CORE SDI.

Speaking of which, I've noticed that Alfredo will do an entire BlackHat-talk about his own exploit/payload for the bug in question. Will be interesting to see.. :) Bitsec vs CORE, let the best payload win! ;)

For DefCon we have included yet another one of Christer's 0-days, and might throw in another one still. There is almost a whole month until Vegas after all.. ;)

Best Regards,
Joel Eriksson
