Truly cardless: Jackpotting an ATM using auxiliary devices.

Pursuit of “good customers’ experience“ not only leads to new customers, but also attract criminals of all sorts. Presentation will give overview of current security situation of ATMs with different auxiliary devices allowing cardless transactions. Cardless is new sexy for criminals.

Era of ATMs has started in London in 1967. Since time, when the “hole-in-the-wall” cash machine used radiocarbon paper cheques, ATMs became more complex and smart, providing opportunity to withdraw money without cards. Vendors, in accordance to banks and consumer’s demand, create ATMs that replace plastic cards and PINs with smartphones or QR codes. Cash withdrawal from an ATM now easier than never before not only for clients, but also for attackers. Jackpotting an ATM via malware or black box are pretty familiar. Countermeasures against such attacks are already in place in many banks. Thus, attackers need to discover new (or well-forgotten) ways to achieve their evil goals. We will not chew the fat, telling stories about the old days, because new functionality provides new possibilities. Migration from Windows XP to Windows 7/10 means there is always PowerShell on the ATM. “New” types of input devices allow BadBarcode-like attacks. Legitimate auxiliary device connected to the ATM in pursuit of so-called good customers’ experience may lead to ejection of all money from ATM.

UEFI rootkits have been researched and discussed heavily in the past few years, but sparse evidence has been presented of real campaigns actively trying to compromise systems at this level. Our talk will reveal such a campaign successfully executed by the Sednit group. We will detail the full infection chain showing how Sednit was able to install their custom UEFI module on key targets' computers. Additionally, we will provide an in-depth analysis of their UEFI module and the associated ...

Meet SiliVaccine – North Korea's national Anti-Virus solution. SiliVaccine is deployed widely and exclusively in the DPRK, and has been continuously in development by dedicated government teams for over fifteen years. When we heard of this strange software, we were immediately driven to investigate it: it's not every day that you can catch a glimpse of the malware landscape inside the closed garden of the DPRK's intranet. In this talk, we will describe how we were able to obtain a rare copy of ...

In this presentation we will take a look at how to break the most popular cryptocurrency hardware wallets. We will uncover architectural, physical, hardware, software and firmware vulnerabilities we found including issues that could allow a malicious attacker to gain access to the funds of the wallet. The attacks that we perform against the hardware wallets range from breaking the proprietary bootloader protection, to breaking the web interfaces used to interact with wallets, up to physical ...

Die Venenerkennung ist eine der letzten Bastionen biometrischer Systeme, die sich bisher der Eroberung durch Hacker widersetzt hat. Dabei ist sie ein lohnendes Ziel, schützt sie doch Bankautomaten und Hochsicherheitsbereiche. In diesem Talk machen wir die Verteidigungsanlagen dem Erdboden gleich.

We all know what FAX is, and for some strange reason most of us need to use it from time to time. Hard to believe its 2018, right? But can FAX be something more than a bureaucratic burden? Can it actually be a catastrophic security hole that may be used to compromise your entire network? Come watch our talk and find out …
