Itzik Kotler (CTO, Security Art)

Presentation Title Let Me Stuxnet You
Presentation Abstract

Einstein said “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones”. This statement is as true today as it was then, and Stuxnet was only the first round.

This presentation discusses the different Permanent Denial-of-Service attacks against hardware such as Phlashing, Overclocking, Overvolting, Overusing and Power Cycling. We will provide real life examples and scenarios (using standard, default applications when possible) of attacks against hardware such as hard-drives, CPU, RAM, GPU, flash memory and legacy hardware such as CRT monitors, floppy disk drives and Motorola 6800/6900 as well.
