Rohyt Belani (Director, Mandiant)

Filed under: Main Page — Administrator @ 10:30 am

May 19, 2006

Presentation Title: Smashing the Stack for Profit - Period
Presentation Details:

Attacks that I have responded to in the recent past have rarely been conducted for fun. The monetary motivation of the hackers is obvious. In this presentation I will discuss real world attacks that entailed a deadly combination of financial fraud and computer crime. The case studies will discuss how the white collared criminals (financial wizards) operate in tandem with computer hackers to rake in the moolah! The focus of the presentation will be on the techniques used by the hackers to obtain the information necessary to successfully execute such attacks.

Note: Not for the faint-hearted!
