PHDays V: How to Create Your Own Shodan, Find ROP Shellcodes, and Automate Reverse Engineering

The fifth Positive Hack Days international forum on practical security will take place in Moscow World Trade Center on May 26-27. With the second wave of Call for Papers finished, we present a new portion of reports.

Automation: Reverser’s Helper

Reverse engineering often implies thorough analysis of an application system code, and the star tool here is a disassembler. Researchers encounter various difficulties — from deciding on an order of function processing and differences in system versions to inability to fully debug and emulate the code in built-in systems.

In his report Anton Dorfman, who presented a workshop on mastering shellcode at PHDays III, will share his experience in creating a reverse engineering plugin based on IDAPython, which is capable of conducting primary automated code analysis and transferring results from a currently researched system to its other versions.

How to Create Your Own Shodan

The acclaimed international security specialist Igor Agievich will cover the topic of creating a search system identical to “the world’s most dangerous search engine” — Shodan.

The speaker will compare the developed system to its counterparts and give examples of curious devices detected by the new search engine.

Catching ROP Shellcodes in Network Traffic

Remote vulnerability exploitation is one of the most powerful tools attackers have in their arsenal — this is how worms are spread and sensitive information is leaked. In order to bypass security, attackers developed a shellcode-constructing technique using return-oriented programming. The new type of shellcode was called ROP shellcode.

The former participant of the CTF team Bushwhackers Svetlana Gayvoronskaya will present a utility that conducts static and dynamic network traffic analysis for ROP shellcodes. Last year Svetlana together with Ivan Petrov presented a report on shellcode hunt for ARM.
