“Drive-By Pharming” – My SANS Keynote & Webcast

There has been a lot of buzz this week about so-called “Drive-By Pharming”, which is interesting because you don’t need a motorized vehicle of any sort to accomplish this attack. My SANS keynote covers these attacks in great detail, which those that attended my keynote in New Orleans are well aware of. You can find my slides here:
Things That Go Bump In The Network: Embedded Device Security
I will also be giving this presentation today! The SANS webcast, with the same title, can be found here:
Webcast: Things That Go Bump In The Network: Embedded Device Security
So come listen today and learn why “Drive-By Pharming” does not require a car, how to protect yourself and others against these attacks, and how to start hunting for these vulnerabilities in embedded devices.
