SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Black Hat, the world’s leading producer of information security events, today announces the release of its initial Briefings lineup for Black Hat Europe 2020, taking place virtually 7-10 of December. The virtual event will feature nearly 40 Briefings presented by top security professionals who will reveal new vulnerabilities and defenses spanning all levels of information security.

Black Hat Europe 2020 program highlights include:

  • Mobile vulnerabilities, including a talk that will show the first systematic security analysis on 11 popular commercial app-in-app ecosystems, revealing four new serious vulnerabilities that allow an attacker to access the camera, photo gallery, microphone, and more.
  • Flaws with embedded TCP/IP stacks, revealing over a dozen new vulnerabilities deployed in everything from networking equipment and medical devices to industrial control systems. Researchers will discuss the nuances in their exploitability and potential impact, demonstrating a proof-of-concept against a yet to be disclosed high profile target.
  • Vulnerabilities with Bluetooth’s Host-Controller Interface (HCI), where researchers will share more than a dozen IOBluetoothFamily HCI kernel zero-day vulnerabilities that have been hidden in plain sight. They will also demonstrate how they can attack undocumented vendor commands.
  • An attack on PDF documents, including a demonstration on how to use a single link to compromise the contents of a PDF and exfiltrate it to a remote server, steal the contents of a PDF without user interaction, and much more.
  • An overview of fingerprint-jacking, where researchers will reveal five novel attacking techniques through fingerprint hijacking that can be launched from zero-permission malicious apps, allowing attackers to steal money via a popular payment app, gain access to the most widely used root manager app, and more.
